Devil May Cry 4

 

You're kidding me, right? Now, I know I'll piss some people at Capcom off by saying this, but it really does alter how the game is viewed. I have a problem with console games installing on the hardware – there is a reason I have a personal preference...

Great action ; Tight controls ; Nero ; Visually wonderful ; PS3 gets shorter load times

Backtracking ; Forced load times ; Repeated levels ; Capcom's attitude regarding the load times ; Going through the same levels again ; Load time benfit not worth the install (in both hard disc consumption and time)

Get the Xbox 360 version.

Review: Devil May Cry 4 (PS3)

 

Devil May Cry 4 is the latest entry in Capcom's “stylish action” series featuring fast, third-person action gameplay featuring characters of mixed human and demon lineage wielding combinations of upgradeable magical melee weapons and firearms of...

Will we see two more Devil May Cry games on this generation of systems the way we saw three of them on the PlayStation 2? If so, I hope more innovation comes into the franchise, but I can’t knock DMC4 as it's a very strong debut for the series,...

The biggest change -- and arguably the best -- is the introduction of Nero, a new protagonist whose gameplay is decidedly different from that of series-stalwart Dante. Devil May Cry's Dante has always focused on traditional action-game elements (albeit...

Devil Bringer a success ; Incredible looking game

Repetitive levels and bosses ; Took too long to come out

One thing the company can definitely keep up, though, is the incredible polish and quality of its graphics. In a word, Devil May Cry 4 looks phenomenal. Although the screens in this review look great, they don't do justice to the game's appearance in...

Dante returns, but this time with a sidekick, of sorts.

Even with its repetitiveness and awkward camera angles, Devil May Cry 4 provides a solid addition to the series and even towards the end, with its descent into a puddle of annoyance, the game features some exceptional gameplay and cinematics. It's not...

Devil May Cry 4 - PS3 review at Thunderbolt Games

 

I was one of many hardcore gamers eagerly anticipating Devil May Cry 4 - so much so that I even spoiled myself rotten by watching all the in-game cutscenes (from the earlier-released Japanese version) as they were put up on YouTube. I couldn't help...

You always know where you are with a franchise like Devil May Cry. The formula has remained unchanged since the original PlayStation 2 title, and the game has stubbornly refused to change. Even i...

Bringing on the Hurt

The Devil Bringer adds a new dynamic and a few new gameplay mechanics to the series which were much needed. Nero can use the Devil Bringer to perform the Buster; the move picks enemies up in the air and slams them down, inflicting a good deal of damage...

I pretend to be all urbane and sophisticated, with my token copy of Miles Davis' "Kind of Blue," my vintage sport coats, and my complete collection of Anton Chekov's short stories (all 13 volumes), but the truth is, I'd take a bologna sandwich and a...

This review was based on a gold build of the game provided by the publisher.

The demon-hunting sequel delivers a highly entertaining action romp loaded with fun and fan service.

A visually splendid sequel that features great gameplay and wonderful presentation; online leaderboards

Platform-specific issues; has too many instances of "level recycling;" Dante sections drag a little

Devil May Cry 4 Preview

 

Devil May Cry brings in extra help to kick demons in the face.

Scheduled to release early February 2008 on the PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and PC, DMC 4 will introduce players to a new level of demon hunting mayhem. Look for our review in the near future.
