"A masochist beat 'em up fan's dream (and nightmare). Over the top combat driven by an insane combo system and fun gameplay elements. Great port, too."

    This game ♥♥♥♥ing rules.

    The boss fights rock. The combat rocks. The music came and so did I.

    I'll admit it took quite a few hours (a large distance into the game) before I felt comfortable with how the game played and became competent in combat. It is my first real DMC game.

    Enemies feel a little damage spongey and there's no shortage of them to annoy you and slow your progress. The sensation of being lost is very brief, Level design and progress is between the perfect threshold. I'll feel a bit lost but only briefly before the destination opens up naturally.

    But those bosses and stronger enemies man. Phew. I just gave someone Zangeif's Ultimate Atomic Buster and had to post about how satisfying that felt.

    To the idiots who think bosses have no place in games--please play this game or leave my hobby.

    Devil May Cry 4 is about a half demon named Nero who works for a cult / occult named the "Order of the Sword" the Order of the Swords is basicly worshiper of Sparda ( Sparda being the great demon lord / king / the defender of hummunity ) Even though hes dead they have great appericate of him sealing of the hell gates that connect Earth Relam form the underworld 2,000 years ago. But there is a catch about this occult / cult they are batshit crazy and believe the world is unpure and corrupt and try taking over the world.

    You play as Nero the Canbian who's task at the begining is to hunt down the infamous Dante Son of Sparda and capture him and bring him back to your Headqauters, but throughout the story your toughts and opinons change about dante..

    Gameplay / Character Switch
    Missions 1 - 12 you play as Nero
    Missions 12 - 18 you play as Dante
    Missions 18 - 20 you play as Nero

    PRO'S
    -it's Fun, challenging, balanced character action game well optimized for the PC
    -Unlimited replayablity weather it be story or bloodly chamber
    -Good Story
    -Powerful & Effective Combo System

    CON's
    -None

    Verdict
    "Devil May Cry 4 is a beat em up action game worth picking up that fratures a intense in deph combat system that was above in its time considering the game was made in 2008"

    9.5/10

    Better to wait until the special edition comes out this summer, as it has more playable characters and a lot of new content. This game close to being the best DMC game. The only problem is no Vergil. But thats going to be fixed soon.

    Remarkably awesome spectacle fighter that ends up not taking itself too seriously with it's great sense of humor, in contrast to how it starts out. Admittedly, it starts out kinda weak, but about a quarter of the way through it begins to get real good, then at around the middle point, when you take control of Dante(whom you kick insurmountable amount of ♥♥♥ with in true DMC fashion) is when you realize how awesome this game is. Its by no means flawless(what game is?), the Gyroblades and the dice "puzzles" were just annoying and in poor taste IMO, but too few and far between all the ridiculous ♥♥♥ kicking and platforming to come even close to ruining the whole experience.

    It goes without saying that theres a lot of depth in the combat and the cutscenes are simply spectacular, but the cherry on top is the fact that DMC4 is just an exceptional PC port, probably the best port of all time because it rarely dips below 120fps while looking absolutely stunning, the only times it does drop is sometimes at the start of cutscenes(probably due loading) and also if you have vsync enabled it bugs out occasionally and drops to 60fps in some parts, but I tested it and with in-game vsync disabled its a constant 120fps otherwise. You'll probably wanna force vsync from your driver because it tears pretty bad. A minor issue which never happens during combat, but worth a mention I suppose.

    Worth multiple playthroughs /10
