It's the first big boxed game release of 2013, and it's a goodun! DmC Devil May Cry has been the subject of much scorn and scepticism pre-release, but if you read Rich Stanton's review yesterday then you'll know he feels it not only revitalises the series bit "is almost a classic in its own right".
Our new YouTube man Ian Higton (check out his Games of 2012 piece on Minecraft 360 if you missed his introduction) has been busy since he got back from his Christmas hols. Busy slaying demons.
Yep, Ian's been playing a near-complete version of DmC: Devil May Cry, which is due out on PS3 and Xbox 360 on 15th January. You can check out several of his videos over on the Eurogamer YouTube channel and we will have more over the next couple of weeks, including a live stream. Here are some highlights, starting with the preview he put together before we broke up for the holidays:
Ian's also put together some videos showing specific missions. Here's one of Mission 8, where Dante gets stuck in a Limbo-world version of a subway system, complete with demonic trains for juggling enemies into.
