Well made but feels unfinished in a way.

Snotnarok | Nov. 4, 2014 | See all Snotnarok's reviews »

Let me explain the title right away, the game is very well made and has everything you'd expect from a Devil May Cry game. The reason it feels unfinished is you play the first half of the game as Nero (new character)...then you play as Dante ...reverse through what Nero went through. Granted there's new cutscenes and such but you're literally fighting the same bosses and everything just with Dante who does work 100% different than Nero but it still feels hack-y no matter how well made the game is. The only difference is there might be a different puzzle or new enemies which is where the entertainment really comes in. Going through these new enemies in new combinations.

Speaking of enemies and combinations- do not play this game on easy mode. They cut down the enemies to, so you'll never see some enemy types simply because you're on easy mode. I never heard of this till my friend was confused when I was talking about some fights in the game that were hard because of a certain enemy that he never saw.

Nero...he's hit or miss, he has a new grabby ability with his demonic arm that lets you yank enemies from a distance or throw them about. His sword has a weird motorcycle rev-up sorta thing to increase damage making for some wild combos. Dantae on the other hand is a maniac, if you played 3 this may make more sense to you. You get all his styles and weapons...at the same time. You can switch through all of them on the fly with no menu usage or whatever. He's got swords, gauntlets, another different sword, pistols, shotgun, Pandoras Box

The game is crazy, it looks nice to this day, runs super well and has PC exclusive features like extra enemies...As in go into a room and instead of 5 enemies there's 20 at the same time. The Bloody Palace is back from 3 buuut...it's different. You'd be better off looking at a youtube video to understand what they did to it. It's by no means bad, just different.

So all n' all, it's a solid game but with the above mentioned retreading, some may be off put by that. It's a great port with added options that you'd expect but more features that are a nice bonus.

I Can Swing My Sword and Shoot My Guns, but My Camera is Broken

rahnborshko | Oct. 26, 2014 | See all rahnborshko's reviews »

Devil May Cry 4 has its good and bad moments in equal measure. The fighting is fun and responsive. The story isn't anything special, but rather passable. I would say the characters were quite fun to see as you gallivant around the games various settings. Somethings that I felt were less than pleasant about the game were its apparent lazy level design. The levels are straight forward and not that interesting. It also doesn't help that you pretty much play through the same levels twice for in ascending and descending order fighting the same bosses multiple times. Another thing that I didn't approve of was the camera system. The game changes from fixed to free moving camera depending on what area of the map you are on and at times it disorientates. As it is a Capcom game, expect there to be lots of unlockables after you defeat the game. All in All, I would say this game was pretty good but with a little more time it could have been really good.

The last great DMC awesome

ansonicte | June 21, 2014 | See all ansonicte's reviews »

In this game you are Nero or Dante, but the first character you use more time. The game have many different environments, castles, jungles, etc very diverse environments, however the enemies are all the same, or very similar.

When you play as Dante seem that repeats all the areas the game, but with Dante, is a little monotonous. However worth wait a little and play the most fun parts of the game. I love how this game handles the combat system. In my opinion it's the best hack and slash, along with DmC, but more challenging that DmC. The awesome gameplay. As Nero you have plenty of awesome moves that you can use on your enemies. And As Dante also, or maybe more awesome even.

It took me 36 hours to complete this game on Normal difficulty level, You don't need a controller for this one, you can play it with your keyboard, but it is much better to play with a controller, I played with a gamepad of xbox360 and is 100% recommended.

Still great without Dante as main character.

Furrek | June 14, 2014 | See all Furrek's reviews »

Before I played this game I've heard that it sucks, because Dante is not the main character in this one. This was my first Devil May Cry and I loved it. Sure, I did played after other Devil May Cry games, but I still think that this is the one that I had most fun. People may not enjoy the story, but it's just a nice addon to the awesome gameplay. As Nero you have plenty of awesome moves that you can use on your enemies. Those are also very effective. Not only game is beatiful but also very satisfactory when making combos with higher notes. It took 50 hours from my life to complete this game on every difficult level, so it sure is long playing time for action game like Devil May Cry. Also, you don't need a controller for this one, you can play it with your keyboard.
