I haven't played either. All I know is that the original with the white hair looks like some guy posing for a Hot Topic poster and the new one looks like some kind of MMA fighter with a bad attitude. Outside opinion looking in. Red thumbs shower me.

I'd say flip that statement around, have you seen bands like Bring me the Horizon?

Old Dante was witty, clever, arrogant sure, but he didn't need an array of F-words and C-bombs just to be considered threatening (He comes off as 3edgy5me honestly)

Coming from a true fan who played every single game, including the reboot I feel as if I'm entitled to talk about this:   
   
This reboot was good, however, unlike the the last game it was not great, and utterly 			******		 with major elements of the story. It had some good ideas, but in my opinion fails to live up to the original.    
   
Dante becomes a slightly weaker character, and is a bit annoying, but otherwise barely tolerable, and I do mean barely, Vergil is utterly butchered, I like the idea of him being a smart ass, but he behaved like such a bitch, and he was laughably weak when he should have been 3 times more difficult and bad ass. Also, this whole "nephlim" business is cool in theory but it completely and utterly throws a way a major theme of DMC: Not being a monster because of your birth, and the human element. I was also pissed they took out the "fight every boss you killed on one stage" level.   
   
DMC4 was 			*******		 brilliant, and only lacking in the intensity and game play of 3. I pray to the gods for a 5, because while that reboot was fun and had some pretty 			*******		 epic boss fights, it's just a shadow of DMCs shimmering glory.   
   
And 			****************		 that music was lame compared to the original compositions of the last two.

tl;dr Vergil is top tier

DmC was better in every possible way. Combat flowed better and had more versatility, the environments were better, and the characters were more versatile and believable.

Bring on the red thumbs.

DMC4 was **** . You got to mostly play as a crappy carbon copy of Dante, and when you do get to play as Dante it is for like an hour. They seriously didn't even try to make a new character design.
User avatar #89 to #39 - drldrl (06/29/2013) [-]
They weren't trying to make a better version of the original.
They were created a game in an alternate universe, and they did pretty damn well. Some of the elements in the game are awesome. The new one also incorporates part of the "You're not evil because of your birth." Dante and Vergil are both beings of immense power, and Vergil believes they should use it to rule over mankind and protect them from themselves and other beings. Dante, believes that every being should be free.

Dude. I love this. This whole thing. I agree with almost everything. I didn't like that DMC4 was just 10 levels then you played the exact same 10 levels backwards with Dante. I like Dante more, but I wish he had his own levels. The gameplay was godlike in DMC4 and 4. Also, I play the game which that gif if from competitively. I use Vergil/Dante/Strider.

give it time for development, they basically set up that demons are now in the human world, dante has white hair and has grown from a street punk to...well, less of street punk., His rivalry with vergil has begun. They can go to great places with that
User avatar #43 to #39 - rhetoricalfunny (06/28/2013) [-]
I actually kindof like the new DmC. Mind you, I was the kid who grew up in isolation with nothing but my brother, our PS2, and a handful of games. Among them Devil May Cry.

It won't ever, in a million years come close to the originals. And the new Dante, (I don't mind him) will never be as awesome as the old one.

I liked it because it was a change of pace. Among all the titles like Battlefield and the yearly Call of Duty, it was nice to play something that felt familiar. It was hectic and fun.

Yea they butchered alot of things, but the way I see it the last games are just suspended in limbo see what I did there? sometime soon, we're just going to pick up, and continue where we left off. I hope so anyway. I see much potential for new DmC to outstay its welcome.
User avatar #59 to #39 - infamoustrapper (06/29/2013) [-]
There's one problem with everything you said. The story isn't SUPPOSED to be the same. The fact that everyone is getting pissy about the story is actually really annoying. Why the **** would they keep the story the same in a reboot? It's SUPPOSED to be different. It still has moderately the general idea.
#57 to #39 - zrazzer (06/29/2013) [-]
I have never agreed with someone more then i agree with you now.

the thing about original DMC was that Dante was not evil despite his lineage, and he found peace and the ability to be a kick ass good guy. Plus the whole demon's running our world with the pseudo political message was kinda out of place and not needed.

The worst thing is during the scene after the fun house where the mop lands on newbie's head and he says "yeah right, not in a million years"

White Hair Dante is still a 12 year old's idea of cool. The only difference now is that you're no longer 12 when the alternative is introduced.

Maybe if you would have not passed off criticism as "no-personal-opinion sheep's code of life to hate the new trilogies", and actually researched about the games, then you would know why people dislike the new DmC.

-The story is anarchist fan fiction tier atrocious
-Gameplay had a much lower skill ceiling, easily projected and slow enemies, and was restrictive with how some enemies can only be killed by some weapons in later levels.
-New Dante is a more than obvious mary sue of Temeem, and i'm not just talking about his original unveil design. ***** over people to do what ever he wants, ***** any girl he wants, ***** the demons in power of everything to "free mankind" oh wait never mind it was revenge, then becomes the protector of mankind (not like the ending helped out anyone in anyway)
-His unbearable personality, I know you guys have already said "he has character progression" before, but I really wonder if you guys have actually played the game. After Virgil shoots Mundus' wife's unborn baby in a trade for Kat, then shoots the wife in the head, he does freak out. But then later when facing mundus while upset, reverts and RUBS THE DIRT IN THE WOUNDS, cmon Dante get him pissed! Wet Chunks! Hell the main villain had more personality than Dante himself.
-and of course pic related, more than obvious forced marketing and buying off reviewers.

But hey, maybe i'm just a "no-personal-opinion sheep's code of life to hate the new trilogies" guy! Screw our collective criticisms over, we're all just haters! am I right?

I don't mind change, people are more than ok with change. (Diablo 3 has problems though, just putting that out there)

However you can't deny criticisms as "fear of change", you can't just say everything negative is just bitching and hating, the majority of people aren't shallow like that. Nothing is above criticism. Hell i'll be the first to say the DmC has it's good points, it's ninja theory's best game yet, but you can't deny the bad. But you're not going to pay attention again will you? you did just block out all of the criticism I just posted after all.

You and people like you are no better than haters, you are hyper sensitive to negativity that you won't even try to debate, but instead cut yourself off with "If you want, you can show off that change in the most negative manner possible, but that doesn't mean its true." Arguments and the real world don't work like that kido, Look at the situation from both perspectives, respect their views, and then make up your mind by thinking for yourself. If you're willing to argue about the game's pros and faults, I'll be more than willing to partake in that, but if you're just going to throw it off as bitchin or hatin then don't even bother, i'm sick of talking to a brick wall.

Do you even logic? I'm begging to wonder how you're able to type at all. do you even know what sheep is, when you are doing the exactly same thing that you are complaining about? The entirety of your comments are of hypocrisy to the max, do you even know what hypocrisy is? or are these words too big for you? Can you read? Can you understand ANYTHING?   
   
Go back to school, go back to elementary, go back to kindergarten, what ever will it takes to get some proper education. Maybe if your head isn't as dense as black hole, then maybe you wouldn't be what you inadvertently (it means you did something, without knowing it something else would happen) hate, a blind hyper-sensitive sheep.

You say that, but you're tying to use an intellectual argument without eve know what knowing how to do it. the more you talk the more you are making yourself look stupid.   
   
You're ignoring all criticisms, you're passing everything off as one thing or another, you're not even keeping on topic about debating. Instead you're constantly putting yourself in a little protective womb shutting out all everything, You're holding yourself at some kind of deluded highground thinking you're some kind of special snowflake that is above everything. "...especially against me.",  "All your arguments against me are null" You are literally a kid plugging up his ears going "lalala! I can't hear you! I win!" You are so far up your ass you honestly think you are god.   
   
Enough, just stop making yourself look more and more retarded with your pseudo-moralistic intellectualism, you are so far deluded to know how big of a grave you dug yourself this entire time. Do yourself a favor and stop, and stop fearing criticism. In the real world, you can't shut everything out and run away. Look at criticisms, respect the people who give them, and reflect upon them to better your self and your products. Your life and your products will do better in the long run. Oh and, if you ever play the game, your friends nor my "simple hating" will ever determine how you will enjoy or not enjoy the game.

But hey, keep on trying, ive given up on being logical and respectful. You haven't been a good sport, so i'll just continue to laugh at your desperate pseudo-intellectualism.

People don't understand it seems. DMC takes place before dante even thought about the idea of his place. Hes still young and the way he was risen, yeah it fits. And later throughout the store he slowly grows white hair till the end. He develops from being a street risen prick to what is to be his classic form. (trying to not spoil for anyone with details). Just like all the other comments: Char development. Give the game a try and take in thats its a reboot. Not spending the whole time comparing it to the classics. enjoy it or deal with it.
