    This game was amazing. *Slow claps*
    I thought it was just OUTSTANDING. I didn't expect this. The graphics were smooth and fine, which made me very impressed. Also a good game for anyone who wants a challenge. One problem I had, though, was that there was a lot of backtracking. Although, another thing I liked was that you could play as two different characters to play as. I really enjoyed that part, even though I always played as a devil-hunter. I highly recommend this game to anyone who considers it.

    Devil May Cry 4 is an action hack and slash fantasy game. It is renowned as quite challenging (with solid AI and bunch of difficulties), therefore, a simple button mashing won't be beneficial. In addition to fighting, there are also some puzzles to solve and a good plot to enjoy:

    Story itself is a sequel to Devil May Cry 3 but fully understandable even if you didn't play previous games. Summary of the story in one sentence: Nero goes out on a hunt to kill Dante, a half demon who's presumably a murderer, just to find out who's the real threat to mankind. It has a little bit of everything: action, drama and comedy, thus, making it a really enjoyable ride.

    During the playthrough you get to play as both Dante (easygoing, sarcastic and calm guy) and Nero (impetuous and naive kid). They have a decent weapon arsenal and skill diversity but plays similarly. The character swap happens as you progress halfway through the story but the main issue here is that as soon as you get to play as Dante you must complete the same path that Nero did. Only backwards with few additions here and there. This turns into a bigger problem when you have to kill the same boss for the third time throughout the game. It shows laziness and lack of creativity from developers. Another thing that I really loved is that demons (especially bosses) have a very unique design and differ in their abilities. Accordingly, you're bound to adapt and learn how to deal with them.

    The biggest disappointments for me were controls, the menu and the most of all, absurd camera angles. These problems greatly reduced my enjoyment while playing but nevertheless the positive aspects strongly outweigh the negatives and I'd recommend this game to everyone.

    If you want to play a hack n slash game with great combat and graphics that still hold up today, you should pick this up. It has a really deep combat system, and it feels very rewarding to get good at the game. The story is pretty barebones, and there is some backtracking (although you play as a different character who plays very differently so I didn't mind much). I also disliked some of the puzzles, but I don't feel like they detracted much from the game, and there are plenty of great boss battles.

    Finally returned to this and played to completion. It probably helped my experience that I knew what I was getting into and was aware of the criticism about reusing levels and bosses throughout the game. This felt on the easier side of things when I finished it on Devil Hunter mode, but that just may be because I've played and completed every other game in the series (except for 2, cause that was awful).

    I did feel as though the weapons didn't have quite as many moves and abilities as DMC 3 or DmC, but I got used to it as the different weapons for Dante are varied enough to make things interesting.

    DMC4 is a fun hack-and-slash romp, with two distinct styles of play. As you progress through the various levels and difficulties, you slowly accumulate power, and become something akin to a ♥♥♥♥-talking, pizza-eating badass. And by akin to, I mean that's exactly what you become.

    There are two characters in DMC4, each with their own style of play- you play as Nero for the first half of the game, and the overall series protagonist, Dante when he is incapcitated.

    Nero uses his demonically-enhanced arm, the Devil Bringer to pull off most of his special moves, which mean most of them are grappling moves. These range from just slamming a common foe to the ground to tossing and flinging a boss through the air. In addition, he wields his sword- the Red Queen - and his revolver- the Blue Rose. Each can be charged for more powerful attacks.

    Dante is a more versatile character from the time you get him, wielding three weapons at the beginning and gaining four (well, five) as you progress. Each weapon has it's disadvantages and advantages (Gilgamesh is slow, but strong i.e) and can further diversify it's moveset with the use of Styles- which allow you to further customize how Dante plays.

    If I have any complaint, it's that some of the button prompts have been unchanged from their original console release.

    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™

    This is hands down, bar-none the absolute best hack n slash game ever made.
    Its only singular problem is the fact that half the game you change characters (which is not bad) and you backtrack the entire game (which is bad) with very little change in level layout. But thats it. Nothing else is wrong with this game.

    Everything from the sound to the animations to the cutscenes to the voice acting is perfect for this FUN and beautifull action game. It can be picked up by inexperienced players easily (thanks to the automatic) but has incredible depth to its combat thanks to everything being based around timing and when you pull something off its extremely satisfying. Everything just feels....spot on. Its only flaw, the backtracking, is not that bad and i can excuse it because for a game where everything is so spot on and beautifull i truly dont think the creators wanted to make second half of the game this way.

    The best Devil May Cry game available for PC, partly due to the fact that DMC 3 is a terrible port and the PC version of DMC 4 runs great and has some extra ♥♥♥♥, though the game really should be played with a gamepad.

    The core combat is probably the best of all the DMCs, essentially being DMC 3's combat but with a few additions, the biggest easily being on the fly style switching for Dante, allowing you to switch between the different movesets with the D-pad.

    However the gameplay is hampered by numerous things. The first being that for just over half the game you play as the new protaganist Nero who is incredibly watered down in comparison to Dante, having only a single sword and gun, no styles and being easier to perform certain actions. Something unique to Nero is his demon hand, the Devil Buster, which allows him to grab enemies towards him or grab himself towards them, as well as a few special moves. Overall while not terrible he's a lot less fun to play as than Dante.

    Dante suffers from playing second fiddle to Nero over all, when you do get to play him you are just cutting your way back through the levels you went through as Nero and fighting the same bosses, only backwards. Including the default weapons, Dante also only has access to three Devil Arms and Guns each, about half of the previous game's weapon selection.

    The story is meh. Nothing special, nothing terrible. Doesn't ruin the game and I think if you're playing a DMC game for Shakespear you're playing it for the wrong reasons. I don't really have much more to say on that.

    Probably missed out on some things, migh edit this later. Overall good, and as I said in the opening it's the best DMC game available for PC, it just has some rather large pitfalls that stop it from being the best DMC full stop.

    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 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.

    Excellent game with a sky high ceiling for skill and a very deep combat system. The music is bad and there is a lot of backtracking but this is definitely a must play. Looks great and runs on a potato too.
