DmC 1.5(VERGIL’S DOWNFALL)
Platforms: Xbox 360/PC/PS3
Game supports English, Spanish, French, Italian, and German text.
Audio support English, Spanish, French, Italian, and German.
Played in French.
Story: Taking place after DmC, Vergil has died and must come back to the world of the living.
Good or Bad Story?: It’s very cool to see what unfolds for Vergil after the ending of DmC. The story is done very well and gives an idea of what may happen in a future sequel. GOOD!
Graphics: Of all the games that I have played using the Unreal engine 3, DmC is the best looking game that runs on that engine and the dlc Vergil’s Downfall still proves that. Even the animated cut scenes look good on unreal 3.
Audio: The music doesn’t vary like when playing with Dante, but it doesn’t make it a bad thing. The music suits the mood that Vergil is in. The French voice acting is top quality and the sound effects for all the attacks from both Vergil and his enemies are satisfying.
Good: The plat forming is done very well unlike the previous dmc’s which had issues. The game also requires you to explore the levels to find secrets. The combat is similar to all the previous dmc’s where you perform combos and try to get that all satisfying SSS combo ranking; however, the combat feels a bit more realistic and this makes it feel a lot more smoother than previous entries. The camera is a bit closer to Vergil, but it doesn’t cause problems. Now the biggest difference here is how Vergil plays, he has the angel and demon mode for his weapon, but his weapon will not have an element when using in either form what it does is it gives Vergil new attacks to his arsenal. Vergil is also more of a close range fighter and has moves that cover some space, so prepare to either pull enemies closer or pull Vergil closer to his enemies. This makes Vergil a more complicated character especially when trying to get a SSS combo ranking, but once you get the hang of him it will be more satisfying. And there are good boss fights. Also the length of the dlc is not as long as the story for Dante, but it’s long enough to make you want to replay and unlock stuff. Note Vergil is not playable in Bloody Palace.
Bad: Actually there is nothing bad about the game, it’s that amazing.
Overall: This dlc is 1 if not the best dlc for a game yet. Even without this dlc DmC is still 1 of the best games of 2013 in my opinion. A must have game of 2013.
Likes: Graphics, game play, story, voice acting, music, unlockables.
Wish list: Sequel.
Score: 5/5 AWESOME!
