Devil May Cry 4

 

Everyone remembers their first time playing a Devil May Cry game. There's simply nothing else like it-the insanely awesome moves, the totally over-the-top cut scenes, and of course the hair-yanking difficulty. Over the years the series has had its ups,...

Devil May Cry has always been something of an acquired taste, and DMC4 is no exception. Though not quite as toxic to casual gamers as the original was, this game is really meant for action aficionados, and more precisely hardcore action nuts who want a...

Series anti-hero Dante takes the bench in this entry, but you wouldn't realize it since the character they replace him with is his spitting image, a slightly younger version named Nero. The breaking point for the two is that Nero offers up a new...

I've never been a fan of repeat gaming. Once I beat a title, that's it. But somehow Devil May Cry 4 (DMC4) is an exception. My first time through the game wasn't enough, and I find myself unable to resist a second run. Now that I've learned the moves...

Short, encourages multiple play throughs ; Amazing visuals ; Fun weapons and combinations moves, attacks have substance, stronger attacks look like they deal significantly more damage ; Tons of secret stuff and unlockable content

Short, might not be great for people who don’t like replaying games ; It takes a while to unlock difficulty levels that make enemies challenging ; Environments reused too much, with not much level variety ; Crappy camera angles

Whether you’re a noob or a veteran DMC-fan, DMC4 is an excellent addition to any collection. From its beautiful graphics to its polished audio effects and music, DMC4 is a work of art. Sure, it’s not perfect, but even when you’re playing through the...

In a land overflowing with demons, there is only one man who can staunch the flow of evil, his name is.... well actually who knows? Because up until this point in the best-selling Devil may Cry series, the hero has always been everyone's favourite...

Devil May Cry 4 is finally here, and boy was it worth the wait.

The main draw, of course, is that both characters have some part of them that is fueled by demon blood, and that equates to absolutely insane acrobatics. Whenever Dante and Nero do end up clashing, the results are often on par with the most elaborate...

Devil May Cry 4 Game Review - Playstation 3

 

In a word, the answer is yes. The game does make some odd choices, though. Dante is frustratingly absent throughout the majority of the game, only making Solid Snake-like cameos for Dante's Raiden equivalent, newcomer Nero. While Nero's no slouch, he...

You're a fan of the series, want a challenge, or are a cosplayer looking for inspiration

You think you can beat it in a day (you can), or are pissed that you won't be in Dante's big, demon-slaying boots this time around

In terms of livening things up, making Nero the lead was a good choice. First of all, there are the beautifully choreographed fight scenes between the two bleach-blonde demon hunters (the game opens with a scene that can only be described as “pistol...

I'm going to be up front about this, I haven't played a Devil May Cry game since 2001. I've missed out on all the story elements continued from the first and am jumping back into the series nearly 7 years later. I figure this will be a decent...

All in all, despite Devil May Cry 4's shortcomings, it is a guilty pleasure. The gameplay is flashy yet simple, the story is non-existent and DMC4 is pleasing on the eyes. Basically, Devil May Cry 4 is just the Devil May Cry game from 7 years ago with...

Devil May Cry 4 Review

 

Devil May Cry 4's battles are immersive and exciting, open-ended and beautifully choreographed, and impossible to put down

Exceptional. The exciting (and exhaustive!) gameplay outweighs the camera issues and other minor nuisances. Non-fans may not be persuaded by DMC4's expansion of its core mechanics, which greatly enhance but do not reinvent the franchise. But if you've...

So, you've just taken home your shiny new copy of Devil May Cry 4 for the PlayStation 3. You can't wait to get the plastic wrap off and pop that disc into your machine for some demon slaying action. Then it hits you. A 25 minute downtime as the disc...

Regardless of experience on the first three Devil May Cry titles, this is a solid action game that is worth the price of admission for veterans and newbies alike. Nero brings an awesome dynamic to the franchise. Combine that with Dante's parallel...
