Hideki Kamiya's Devil May Cry released in 2001 for the PlayStation 2 and arguably changed the course of action games for years to come. In a very loose adaptation of Dante's Inferno, Devil May Cry stars a white-haired, pistol and sword-wielding demon slayer named Dante who embarks on a quest to stop a demonic invasion of Earth. The fluid combat mechanics and cheesy story captivated audiences.
Have the years been kind to the game that was once intended to be Resident Evil 4? Is Devil May Cry one of the best games period?
