In it's essence this is a Devil May Cry gamekotaku1234 | May 18, 2013 | See all kotaku1234's reviews »
After the huge success that was Devil May Cry 3 one would expect Capcom to continue their fantastic work into the new generation. The result is an excellent game although not as good as the first and third entries in the series.
Combat-wise, the series maintained the great combat system implemented in Devil May Cry 3 but with a few tweaks. Playing with Nero is a rather enjoyable experience departing from what we are used to as Dante. Dante may be the stronger Devil and such sweet moves, but playing as Nero is more refreshing using the Buster.
Graphically, this is a competent game taking in account the year it came out. There are sweet landscapes and textures but they are not that impressive.
The story is good but, the repeated sections left a bad taste. I would personally liked new sets and bosses for Dante.
The final battle is absolutely amazing.
Finding all the Blue Orbs and attaining the highest grade in every mission will add value to repalyability. There are tons of extra content waiting to be unlocked!
This is a very very good all in all. Recomended!
Let's Rock, BABY!!!
Can't stop slashing enemies!CrysisX | Feb. 4, 2013 | See all CrysisX's reviews »
This game is a sequel to Devil May Cry 3 and it's pretty good compared to the previous one. Not saying the previous game was bad its just that the controls were horrible in my opinion.
The game features a new character called Nero, a guy with a demonic arm. I must admit his demonic arm comes in handy in tough situations and is pretty much addictive to spam at enemies with it :D On the other hand, Dante still looks cool even though he looks older in the game and is still fun to use. The graphics on this game is amazing for a 2009 game plus the music matches really well when you are fighting with monsters! and no, a controller is not needed :)
Great gameMrrickniel | Jan. 27, 2013 | See all Mrrickniel's reviews »
You'll love this game the beat 'em up action is great but i should use a controller because i didn't really like the keyboard controls. Dante is still badass and you'll love him (nothing against the new one :P) Most of the beat 'em up games get boring in a while (in my opinion) but in this game it doesn't, i don't know why not but its just a great game with slashing some monsters :D,
A fun and exhilarating ride!praggi93 | Jan. 24, 2013 | See all praggi93's reviews »
DMC4 is the sequel to the ever so popular DMC3, introducing a new protagonist and an interesting story. The game offers great graphics, fun and exhilarating boss fights and a thrill that keeps you on crushing demon skulls! It's however not the best PC-port I've seen, so i recommend using a gamepad. All in all, a great game worth your money!
USE A CONTROLLERpuppymang | Jan. 24, 2013 | See all puppymang's reviews »
DMC4 is actually surprisingly fun and a really good PC game but you should be warned that your hands will probably have crippling pain after playing for a few hours if you do not use a controller. The game does not have any sort of mouse control and it'll be all keyboard unless you have a controller. The visuals of this game are really nice and the level design is pretty well done but on the downside there is a lot of back tracking and you might find yourself wondering where to go or what to do for some time until you remember the way back to whatever place you need to go to. Combat is CUHRRRAAAAZZYYY and it's nice that you get multiple characters to play with different play styles and flashy moves but the movement could use a little bit more polishing. Story is a bit cheesy and generic for a japanese game but I think the gameplay makes up for it.
