Excellent game just... One problemeekar1 | Jan. 6, 2015 | See all eekar1's reviews »
Well , the game is challenging (I got stuck in the first boss ) but that's what makes the game better and better ... DMC4 repeats all the game with Dante and that's not good . ( The good part of the repeat are the abilities of Dante and Nero que are completely different ) . The game is really fun and all the scenarios are well made . For 2008 the graphics are incredible . If you like hack and slash you HAVE to play it , one of the bests ( and look at the price , So cheap! ) I found it bad to play on keyboard but yeah , you can plug the controller to play . Fantastic Story, breathtaking scenarios and graphics , unique characters and exciting combat . Buy it , I'm begging ! I really recommend it .

Devil May Cry 4 is not one of those games that you just play to unwind. It is a game where you are challenged every step of the way and you will not last long if you are not a quick study.
Devil May Cry 4 takes place an unknown amount of time after the other Devil May Cry games. At first you take control of Nero, a man with a demonic arm, but later on in the game you play as the devil hunter himself, Dante. Both play similarly when it comes to basic sword and gun combat, but basic combat will not get you far. You will have to master Dante’s and Nero’s different playstyles; Nero’s specialty is his demonic arm that can grapple enemies and pummel them, a tactic that favors slower gameplay focusing on counterattacking and waiting for an opening. Dante, on the other hand, uses different various weapons he picks up along the way as well as different combat styles that change what happens when you press a particular button, which leads to more frantic and fast paced gameplay.
The story is fairly predictable and the characters are not too deep, but the Devil May Cry series has never been one for storytelling; if you play Devil May Cry, you play it for the difficulty and the combat.
Devil May Cry 4 will punish you if you do not master the combat, but if you do manage to master it, you will definitely enjoy it.

DMC4 is the most satisfying hack'n slash game by its combat mechanics for pc.Swordplay very fast ,stylish and fluent and there are many worth to use weapons and guns and of course neros devil bringer ability makes combat system deeper than ever.And there are many originally designed enemy and boss encounter types many of which require some strategy to defeat.Even there is a turbo mode to make the gameplay faster.But what is wrong with DMC 4 is its story and producers level design choices.Story is a bit throw away type and old heros don't show much characteristics like they did on the older games of the series.But some cutscenes are really fun to watch.Games level design like to play the first half of dmc4 twice with different characters which is a bit odd.Presentation of the game is very good some effects like spark are great and some art design of many structures is very detailed. DMC 4 is not the best game of the series but definitely very enjoyable and fast paced game.
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.

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.
