Devil May Cry Too Violent?

Posted December 31, 2012 by Leeroy Jenkins in Editorials

Devil May Cry has always been a great series from Capcom that put players in the face of demons and monsters as they played as a son of evil known as Dante. Dante is a young gentleman with an attitude unlike any other and knows how to take on any challenge that comes at him with crazy acrobatic combat. In Devil May Cry set to release in early 2013, Dante is a but a kid and in this remake that is more retro than the old ones, we see just how violent Capcom is not afraid to get to put a point across but the question is, how violent does it have to be to be considered too violent?

Playing the demo of Devil May Cry that it is available on the Xbox Dashboard and PlayStation Network, I realized that the use of violent language wasn’t just a part of the game, it was the entire basis around one of the boss fights. Now it’s true that you are in a game where you are fighting demons, which are believed to be the most violent things in the history of existence, but there is so much that I thought it was poorly done. Now don’t get me wrong, I love a mature rated game as much as the next guy and I definitely don’t mind some language because that is realistic, but when every word has to be violence and hate, it’s a little out there.

I can already tell that there is going to be endless controversy over this game and there is going to be a waste of time arguing over what is appropriate and over what is not. The fact of the matter is that it’s a balance thing as far as what should be in the game, and parents and censors needing to realize that the game has a big ‘M’ on it for a reason. Devil May Cry needs some work but it’s not enough to turn me off from the game so check it out January of 2013.
