DmC: Devil May Cry Now Available For Xbox 360, PS3

Capcom and Ninja Theory's third-person, action-oriented, hack-and-slash demon hunting game, DmC: Devil May Cry, has officially launched for both the Xbox 360 and the PlayStation 3. The game has already jolted off to a good start with a bevy helping of positive review scores, ensuring that if sales do well a sequel is definitely inbound, for better or for worse.

Gaming Blend's Steve West contributed a review for Capcom's latest entry in the DmC franchise and he has mostly praise to spread around for the game, save for a few control-related issues.

Players assume the role of a half-demon, half-angel named Dante. He doesn't venture into the nine circles of hell but he does send a lot of demons packing to the lake of fire. The reboot of the series sees players taking control of Dante as he grows up in a world dominated by demon influence and it's up to him to dismantle the secret regime controlling the everyday lives of its citizens.

If you can look past the emosity and douche baggery, you'll see that Dante is just like you and I...except he can kick a lot of butt and kill demons with ease. I'm sure if we all gave up the hours and hours and hours of sitting in front of television and computer screens and trained like crazy mofos we all could be expert demon hunters too, but the pay seems sucky. Day job it is.

You can live out your visceral demon-hunting fantasy vicariously through Dante right at this very moment by picking up a copy of the game from your local retailer. The game is rated 'M' for Mature and carries a $59.99 price tag. Need more info? Feel free to visit the Official Website.
