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.
