The demo for DmC: Devil May Cry
is nice and meaty, offering two levels with which to play around with. This was a great decision by Capcom, as they need to let the game speak for itself, and by extension, counter the unwarranted backlash.
"Under Watch" is your traditional Devil May Cry level. Shortly after it begins, Dante is dragged into Limbo, a sort of parallel dimension where the city itself tries to kill him. Walls explode outward, floors break and separate, and the whole architecture of the city goes all Inception on Dante. It seems to be all scripted, but it's still thrilling to fight through it. Speaking of fighting, we're going to wait for the official review to get into it, but rest assured, it's promising.
The second level features one of DmC's boss battles, titled "Secret Ingredient." Here we get a glimpse at DmC's ridiculous and oh-so-very-M-rated sense of humor. The dialogue uttered during this brawl is so blue that it rivals Bob Saget's stand-up routine.
