An enjoyable hack and slash, just not as good of a Devil May CryValoo321 | Dec. 23, 2015 | See all Valoo321's reviews »
Let me preface this by saying that I LOVED DMC 3. It's the pinnacle of the series in my opinion, and I ended up playing it on every available difficulty when it came out. I feel like this needs to be stated because it set my expectations for this one so high. My biggest complaint about this one is that lack of fluid movement. One of my favorite things about DMC 3 was being able to switch your different play styles, from defense, to offense, to bullets, to evade. It set the tone of how you should be playing for that level - but I felt like Nero didn't really have this. Being able to use the hand grapple is where the game really shines, but that feels like it becomes a tired combo that you always have to use. The level design felt a little clunky at times, and most of all a little claustrophobic. The things that stand out to me or when you're stuck in the hallways, or in an open area with all sorts of things in your way. This was another hindrance to the fluidity that made DMC 3 really shine. Overall, it's a very good game and definitely worth playing if you're a fan of the hack 'n' slashers - or even just a fan of DMC. I just don't feel like it quite lives up to what DMC 3 had made.
Very solid hack n slashRicKJameS | Nov. 9, 2015 | See all RicKJameS's reviews »
This was the only DMC that I have played so far. The trailers for the game when it first came out really interested me in the series. It was a great choice because the combat in this game is so fun. The "easy to learn, difficult to master" saying really applies here. You could just mindlessly hack at enemies and do okay for the most part. However, the real fun comes from doing elaborate combos and getting triple S rank. After beating the game there's still many combos to unlock and master, along with varying difficulties to play with. The only downside is that the environments get reused a lot, but the gameplay makes up for it.

Capcom really pushed the boundaries when releasing "Devil May Cry 4", however maintained the devilish quality which we had become accustomed to in previous DMC games. Hack and slash titles can quickly get old, however in the case of DMC4, variety is the name of the game. Focusing on two characters with uniquely different abilities, combat, whilst extremely challenging, is fun and over the top. The story-line maintains an ever changing environment in which to unlock abilities and combos. Although repetitiveness and a few common camera related bugs can at times hinder your progress, overall, DMC4 is a compelling release which is sure to please both die hard DMC fans and casual gamers alike.
Underrated Gem in the Seriessycomantis1991 | May 15, 2015 | See all sycomantis1991's reviews »
This game gets a lot of crap. Most of it just because you don't exclusively play as Dante. As if Dante isn't still a big part of the story and you can't switch between the two for a lot of the game. Nero is a decent character, but he's extremely fun to use. His weird blue grabby hand adds some depth to his gameplay and generates unqieue and fun combos. It's great fun to switch between the two and combat never gets old because of it. The story isn't all that interesting in the grand scheme of things, but the beginning is really epic and the characters/bosses introduced are very interesting and fun to fight. Overall, it's a great game that deserves a lot more adoration than it gets.
Didn't like it...PlayTyrant | May 8, 2015 | See all PlayTyrant's reviews »
This is a hack and slash game, but it so repetitive it made me stop playing it. Come on, even the battle song is always the same! The moment you hear the guitars, the bad guys appear and the battle starts. Button smasher, next area, same music, repeat. I didn't enjoy this experience, maybe others will, but this game is not for me.
