Matt hails "a glorious throwback to 2001"

We've always wanted to big up Ninja Theory, but the studio has a habit of dropping the ball. Previous title, Enslaved was a good game, but the combat wasn't impressive enough to make it great.

I'm sold already. The series was in desperate need of some changes and as much as I loved the original four games I'm looking forward to everything that's new with Dante.

If it's any consolation the only reason we get day one patches is because people like you (and the American's) play it early and field test it for the rest of us. Think of it as taking one for the team :lol:
