Keeps on with the DMC tradition, but repetitive.TheMagicaos1 | Nov. 11, 2013 | See all TheMagicaos1's reviews »
As a typical Devil May Cry game should be, this game has guns swords and an enemy that only die a hundred hits away, if that is the case of your game then you are playing Devil may cry, the start is slow but after that fun is guaranteed, getting up with the combos and slashing everything that comes infront of you is seriously rewarding, opening secret rooms and the ability to upgrade your weapons, it gets boring after some time but if you are in the appetit for some devil may cry then you will fastly come back. The story was not that exciting but with the appearance of previous devil may cry protagonist and the welcome to a brand new character was fun.
Recommended for all of you that have played a hack n slash game or any of the devil may cry games, you will like it.
Repetitive, but in the best wayBLUEKOOLAIDMAN7 | Nov. 4, 2013 | See all BLUEKOOLAIDMAN7's reviews »
A lot of the criticism towards this game stems from its repetitive nature. While this is true, and you will find yourself fighting the same bosses over and over, traversing the same environments back and forth, DMC4 always finds a new wrinkle to throw in the fold to keep it interesting.
A big emphasis in this game is doing things at stylish as possible, so fighting the same enemies also gives you a chance to perfect your fighting style and rack up some big points.
Lastly, with two different characters to play as, each with a variety of moves, you never really feel like you are walking in circles, not when there are so many demons to destroy in devilish fashion (Pun intended).
Excellent but it will be more fastandresshinkyo | Oct. 28, 2013 | See all andresshinkyo's reviews »

Not as good as DMC 3, but good enough as DMC 4.abelegu2 | Oct. 21, 2013 | See all abelegu2's reviews »
If you have a controller, then this game will be up to par. The game just isn't designed for keyboards; it needs the controller to support it's great gameplay. just like its successors, it offers cool (although not as crispy cool as DMC 3) combat/gameplay, but unfortunately the story's a little meh. It's kind of anticlimactic after DMC 3's ending. It felt very God of War-ish in gameplay to me, but I wouldn't skip recommending it. If you're a fan of the DMC series, then this game is something you can't miss. New characters are introduced, and you play as Nero through a most of the game, making it feel a little weird as he looks a lot like young Dante. You get to play as grown-up Dante as well, providing a good mix of old and new powers you can toy around with. The enemies and bosses are generally fun to combat, although sometimes they can get dragged out. Recommended to get on a sale! It's practically given away at 75% sale.

If you like the other DMC games, you'll like this one. The storyline is decent. DMC 3 was better in that respect. Gameplay is what you would expect. The coolest feature is being able to play Dante after you've put some time into the game. I didn't read any reviews prior to playing this game so I wasn't aware that he was still a playbale character. Even better, his battle system is even better than Nero's. You get used to playing with Nero and developing his fighting style, then you get Dante and things are completely different. I would of thought it would be similar but it seems that the devlopers put a lot of time in creating two kinds of battle systems. The basics are the same I guess but the special weapons and how you alternate them are not the same. The leveling up system of collecting souls and buying new moves/items is the same. The normal enemies are fun to mow down, but where this game really shines is the boss battles. Seriously, the boss battles are really fun. However, they are not as challenging. I would recommend this game, especially now at the writing of this review since it's on sale!
