Devil May Cry 4 is a massive showcase of what we could have if we were a better industry.
The combat system is deep, complex, and is freeform enough at the same time to have the possibility for tournaments. Everything your character can do can link to 90% of everything else he can do. High difficutly abounds as both you and the enemy are empowered to ludicrous extents as you improve your moveset in turn with the difficulty. The only realy downfall I can say is that it nearly requires you to have a gamepad.
The engine itself is so well optimized it borders on black magic. Seriously. This game has run on Windows XP computers that came out before the 360.
The story is nothing to truly write home about, but it has a hell of a lot more tact than "♥♥♥♥ you!" and "I'm you prom date you ugly sack of ♥♥♥♥!"
At the end of the day, if you have to buy any one brawler or character action game on Steam, I highly, highly recommend it be this one. It has an exclusive difficulty mode for the PC since no other system could HANDLE it.
The only issues you might have with the game are the lack of quick time events (♥♥♥♥ you if so, the game requires skills that aren't simon says related), the fact that the game demands very, very real skill from beginning to end, especially if you want the best rank for each mission, and finally, the fact that the second half of the story is playing through the same levels against the same bosses as a different character with an entirely different sense of playstyle. If that isn't your thing (different characters halfway through), you probably shouldn't be in this genre to begin with, but there you go.
This game is more or less the Redline of brawlers. It burns you out on quality so hard going to anything else just feels WRONG.
