    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 your 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.

    Devil May Cry 4 is intended for a controller, playable with a keyboard (on the highest difficulties and for doing advanced combos)- but bizarre as the mouse is only for menus. In a lot of cases the game will require the player to press 3+ keys at the same time without ghosting (common in cheap keyboards made only for typing).
    The game still refers to a left analog stick when listing the inputs for a command, which corresponds to some action with WASD- there is no walk modifier key, and the interact [contextual] button will remain even when the command it's tied to has been rebound.

    The game also forces the player to play as specific characters for certain missions, while leaving some boss fights unavailable (i.e Sanctus vs Dante; The Savior vs Nero) or far less accessible (i.e Credo vs Dante after 79 waves in Bloody Palace compared to Nero who only needs to reach the end of a mission).
    This could also affect the general learning curve and game progression (e.g unlocks, next difficulty) if the characters are played for imbalanced amounts of time and/or the player finds a preference of which character to play.

    In content, it's typical for a Devil May Cry game to have some backtracking or content recycling; in this iteration, it's done quite unimaginatively in having the backtracking mission's traversal mostly be the backwards of the initial path. Another is using the same generic battle theme per character for the non-boss encounters (few exceptions).

    The game excels in combat and the nuances & quirks in building combos- e.g Jump Canceling, Guard Flying, Guard Cancel, Invulnerable Frames on certain actions; though at points there'll be a disconnection between what the game considers 'stylish' and what is actually technically impressive ('stylish' to other people).

    If you find yourself having little intention to replay or practice playing the game long enough to accomplish the more technical feats, this game, like most, may not be as satisfying as doing so.

    Devil May Cry 4 is a game with a fantastic, deep combat system that is unfortunately brought down by a lackluster campaign. If you can get around the fact that the levels themselves aren't particularly interesting and that the second half of the campaign is just going through those same levels but backwards, you'll find a game with pretty satisfying combat and a couple of good bosses. This game is also really well optimized and will most likely run like a dream on your computer even if it's several years old.

    For the love of everything that is CUHRAYZEE and SACRED, get this game. This game was built using Capcom's in-house MT Framework and was built on PC FIRST. It's an excellent PC version - you would be very unwise not to get it. If you're a single playthrough sort of person you may find the game lacking, but if you enjoyed the frantic fast paced and high level combat of Devil May Cry 3, this game pretty much is a highly refined version of that. Google around for "Debug Mode" for this game, which will allow you to do all sorts of fun things and help you practice getting better at being CUHRAYZEE.

    This game runs on a toaster and still looks polished and beautiful today, almost half a decade after its release. Show Capcom we want the Devil May Cry of old back by supporting this game!
