I booted up Devil May Cry V for the primary time just lately. I hadn’t touched a Satan Might Cry sport for the reason that somewhat odd fourth one which launched Nero, a poster-child for emo lads within the mid to late 2000s. He simply wasn’t nearly as good as sassing demons as Dante, maybe a bit too critical for my liking.
I favored Nero in Satan Might Cry V much more.
Once we’re first launched to Nero on this sport, he’s lacking half an arm. He’s nonetheless extremely critical at this level, however then who wouldn’t be when their demonic arm will get pinched by the large unhealthy man? He quickly loosens up, partly as a result of he will get some reloadable cyber arms that blend issues up a heck of much more than an everyday ol’ demonic hand ever might. He at all times had fight potential, however now Nero will get extra of a character together with it. His exchange with Goliath exhibits simply how far he’s come on that rating.
After all, in DMCV you don’t simply play as Nero together with his cyber arm and revvable sword. You additionally play as a newcomer merely generally known as “V”. Matt described him in his review as “distractingly just like Kylo Ren”. He’s like a horrible Pokémon coach, ready for his crow to jabber sufficient lightning to weaken his enemies, earlier than leaping into motion and murdering mentioned foe together with his cane.
As you may inform, I used to be much less of a fan of V. However you may fortunately ignore him after some time, as a result of quickly sufficient Dante returns, fittingly probably the most enjoyable and with one of the best toys. He will get a bike that splits into two swords to mince demons, for crying out loud. You may go all Bruce Lee with icy nunchaku. Dante is one of the best DMC boy.
