    Silky smooth graphics and addicting gameplay. Its like button mashing in a fighting game except its action adventure here. You begin with a tutorial in game and then after you complete it, you have to go on different missions. There are lots of objectives and replaybility of the scenes in the game. Just make sure you have a decent video card otherwise you will get serious lag. Thankfully there are lots of options to adjust to in the menu so you can play according to your machine.

    Fun, challenging, balanced character action game well optimized for the PC

    Kill demons with an angry anime guy's jerkoff arm, massive revolver, and stupid sword with an engine in it.

    Also Featuring Dante, From The Devil May Cry Series™

    It's Devil May Cry.
    You're a big dude with white hair and a big sword.
    But this time there's TWO big white haired dudes.
    The combat is mostly the same as in DMC3 but now you can change styles mid-fight.

    So i've played this game for about 40 hours or so and I think it's time to tell you guys my opinion of the game so far. I'll probably be updating this review the more i play this game, but this is my opinion so far.

    This game donesn't have the awesome atmosphere, enviroments and music that DMC3 had, but it's still and awesome game. The graphics are great! They still hold up 6 years after its release. The voice acting is also pretty good and the story is okay. But you don't play a DMC game for that story ♥♥♥♥. You play it for the combat! The fighting mechanics have been revamped since DMC3. Now Dante can switch fighting styles on the go and can hold 3 guns, and melee weapons at the same time which makes for much more possibilities. They've also added a new character named Nero who is actually the main character of the game. Even though he's not as complex as Dante, he's still got a far bit of depth to his combos and relies more on timing with his EX gauge. Nero is also more accesable to new players of the series. His combos are more simple in comparison to Dante, but he still plays great. There were also some new features added to the PC version of this game, the best of these being the new difficulty, Legendary Dark Knight mode. Legendary Dark Knight mode is a great addition to the game and it's pretty addictive as well. This game will also run on a low end PC just fine , there is also alot of replay value here and if you love the DMC series, you'll find yourself sinking plenty of hours into this game.

    Now here comes the bad. My problems with the game would be that it doesn't feel as finished or polished as DMC3, and that's because it's not. The enviroments are kind of copy and paste (Except for the Jungle) and the music is mediocre at best. It is also alot more repetative than the previous games (I don't know about 2 because i've never played it). You fight the 4 same bosses at least 3 times in 1 playthrough and the chess sections are just so dumb. But that doesn't mean the game is bad. Overall it has great graphics, cool cutscenes and the best combat system in any game i've played. If you can get over it's minor flaws, you will have a blast experimenting with new and different combos and enjoying yourself in one of the best action games of all time.

    Alright ♥♥♥♥♥es first steps first turn off your speed hacks and get ready with your X-Box 420 controller because this game is about to get ♥♥♥♥ing real. Turn that difficulty up to its highest and flip that fedora on because you're going to need to do all the ♥♥♥♥ing quick scopes you can in the next ten minutes. Holy ♥♥♥♥ is this game hard, but It's alright you got your hoes to help you out since you'll be button mashing 360 quick-scoping all those fagg0t demons. oh baby a triple, quad, deca, holy ♥♥♥♥ you're god like, bow down to the DMC king. everyone surrender your Doritos and Mountian Dew we've got the Pros in the house.

    Although this isn't the best Devil May Cry game, it still holds up really well. The graphics hold up really well for being made in 2008. The combat is flashy and fun, while being deep. The replay value is really high, having many difficulties, different characters, and secret mini missions. The story isn't the strongest factor, but it isn't that bad. Overall it is a great game, just make sure you connect a controller. As most of the combos are hard to pull off with just a keyboard.

    I enjoyed this game for about 30 minutes (with a gamepad,without it not a chance.) but after that it just felt so repetitive and boring. I now understand while people consider this game to be so terrible.

    What a fakk nugget of a game. Finally finished it so I can post a review. Please be advised that I'm an avid DMC fan and finished the infamous DMC3 a couple of times, so my opinion is valid.

    First, let's get the good stuff out of the way: Spectacular graphics, smooth framerate, the combat is OK, some amazing fight choreographies. Done.

    The bad I will bring to you in the form of a dialogue between the two lead designers. If it helps think of them as Gonad ((c) by Yahtzee) and Testy.

    A: "Let's make DMC4."
    B: "K. Sounds like $$."
    A: "Sure is. Let's be careful not to make it too easy. We want g4m0rz-moneys and they like it rough."
    B: "K, but first things first. Dante or someone new?"
    A: "Dante AND someone new! Damn, I'm good."
    B: "Hmm why not. How should he look, behave, talk and fight?"
    A: "Exactly the same."
    B: "What, really? Won't that confuse and annoy the players?"
    A: "Te he, it's so devious. Let's make everything extra annoying so people play it because it's hard and not because it's good. Do you remember those special missions that allow you to earn blue orbs?"
    B: "Fcourse. I never liked that when you lost energy during those missions that the damage wouldn't carry over to the normal gameplay."
    A: "That's what I was thinking. Make it permanent. Oh, and if you buy something, make EVERYTHING ELSE MORE EXPENSIVE!"
    B: "Excuse me?"
    A: "As soon as you buy something, everything else get more expensive. Every single time you buy something."
    B: "..."
    A: "It's ingenious! So annoying. Players won't be able to plan any purchases beyond the first one. Gnahaha...!"
    B: "Consider it done. I assume we include incredibly frustrating jump sequences from beyond hell with fixed, bad camera angles, respawning enemies and so on for maximum annoyance?"
    A: "DO YOUR WORST! Oh, and how about enemies that have an unblockable attack while down with no tell whatsoever that disrupts your combo while you are slashing them? That should take care of those uber-gamerzz."
    B: "Sounds a bit extreme and unlike DMC to me, but OK. Oh, oh, I always wanted to include a board game segment into a video game. Something where you don't have any control and it just annoys you and goes on forever with seemingly endless enemy hordes spawning again and again and again and-"
    A: "Stop, I get it, I get it. Why not include it in two places, one right before the end. Make that extra annoying, like an hour or so to beat."
    B: "An hour? Are you sure? Or do we now allow saves within a level when quitting the game?"
    A: "Are you CRAZY? Once the g4m0r shuts down the game he has to do the whole level again. That goes without saying."
    B: "What if he's right before finishing this annoying herpderp fakksheet board game level and suddenly has to quit beacuase of real life and stuff?"
    A: "Well, then he would have to deal with the unfairness. He's gonna hate it, he's gonna love it. How long can the game be with our current budget?"
    B: "About 9 hours."
    A: "No, too short, not annoying enough. Backtrack the whole game. Make the player defeat the bosses THRICE."
    B: "I'm not sure about that. It sounds very excessive, and even the most hardcore gamer hates backtracking."
    A: "SILENCE! BACKTRACK! EVERYTHIIIING."
    B: "You got it. Couple of things that I think you'd like."
    A: "Listening."
    B: "Manual saving. I know it's the new millenium, but how peed on would you be if you beat an annoying level and forgot to save especially if you are pumped up after playing, just clicked continuecontinuecontinue when in fact you'd had to go down with the cursor to manually save."
    A: "Love it."
    B: "The program will read Window's language and put the game in that with no option to change it whatsoever. It will take 9 button presses to quit. Oh, and the story will OF COURSE be totally bananas with no plot, people just appearing, disappearing and fighting, and the player will trudge through ♥♥♥♥y, blocky environments with no idea why he does that or where he should go next."
    A: "I give you a raise."

    FAKK. THIS. GAME. It is an amalgamation of some of the most HORRIBLE design choices I have ever encountered in a triple-A game. Lawd knows what shrooms the makers have fumed when they brainstormed about how the game will be. This is an insult to gamers. Play only if you absolutely cannot live without Devil May Cry, have beaten the third one countless times and cannot get into the new DmC (which I very much like, btw). DMC4 is such a soulless, lazy, uninventive and so very, very much annoying cashin of a game that it's not even fun to beat it to prove your skill.

    A pretty fun hack-and-slash game. Strongly recommended!

    Haven't tried much of the other games and not the latest one either. Can still say that this is one of the best hack-and-slash games though. Can be some graphical glitches here and there though, but nothing to big of a problem.

    I give this game 7/10,

    Devil May Cry 4 is fantastic! I have no complaints for the PC version of this game. It is more or less the same Devil May Cry your used to if you are familiar with the Devil May Cry Series. However, DMC 4 has some added features. First of all you get to play as Nero. Nero has a demon hand that allows him to grab enemies from a distance and deal massive damage. All character movements are fluid, and you get to play as Dante towards the end of the game. Increased difficulty based on how you want to play and customization skills.

    I approve this game. Had a lot of fun slaughtering demons!
