Devil May Cry 4 introduced a new playable character, Nero, who could make use of a sword that, with a correctly timed button press, could hit enemies faster and harder as you use it. He also makes use of a revolver and a demonic right arm, as well as a different kind of devil transformation than Dante. He is enjoyable to play as, and you spend the first half of the game playing as him, typically with cutscenes being more serious than when Dante shows up. Halfway through the game you take control of Dante again who can now shift between four different styles of combat and gives you control of his old weapons as well as new weapons gained by defeating enemies. Dante's sections are more humorous in nature and tend to include some of the most amusing parts of the series, unfortunately most of the sections with Dante have you backtracking through the levels you just finished with Nero, even having you defeat many of the same bosses again. The combat has the fast paced and enjoyable elements of other games like Devil May Cry 3 and Bayonetta, the game includes many different difficult modes, including ones where everything is killed in one hit (including you) and a mode where only you die in one hit, and the special edition gives some nice extras with new characters to play as.
