The Dante of DmC is a young man who has no respect for authority or society in general. Dante knows that he is not human, but also that he is not like the demons that have tormented him throughout his life. Caught between worlds, he feels like an outcast.

Part of the work that Ninja Theory has done is streamlining the game. Everything is more slick -- Dante is slick, his way with women is slick, the menus are slick and his fighting is slick. That being said, it's not quite the challenge that... Read Review
