devil may cry 4 is a great addition to the originals. not only is the level design better than the last three in the series, there is a NEW CHARACTER called Nero. I recommend this not to hardcore gamers, but to ALL gamers. Also, I LOVE the fact that Trish is in the game. Isnt she the one who started it all back in the first devil may cry? Well done, CAPCOM!
Rated 7 out of 10 by Electronaut72 Too repetitive, but still a worthy DMC game
"Devil May Cry 4" replaces main character Dante with a similar white-haired protagonist named Nero. Nero controls very much like Dante; the only major difference is his Devil Bringer arm, which allows you to throw and manipulate enemies. Just like past DMCs, you'll slash, shoot, and jump your way through hordes of demon spawn in a 3rd person perspective. The graphics are sharp, but not spectacular (keep in mind, this IS a 2008 release), and the music is a blend of beautiful gothic melodies and modern thrash metal during fight sequences. After the first 11-12 missions, you do finally get to play as Dante...but you have to retread almost every step that Nero made backwards to where the game began (including the bosses). A confusing design choice indeed. Then, during mission 19, you have to fight all of the major bosses a THIRD time. Due to the plethora of weapon options, DMC 4 is still an enjoyable action title...but given the amount of backtracking involved, you may only want to play through it once.
Rated 9 out of 10 by SwordblazerEx Dante vs. Nero
I truly don't know what to say. To me this game was almost perfect. The storyline is great and it throws you for a loop when the story progresses. The contols are spot on, and if you master them they will help you destroy the multitude of enemies with ease. But, lets make one thing clear, the characters are totally different. Nero relies on his exceed and Devil Bringer abilities. While Dante, uses his different styles, new weapons, Devil Trigger, and style action to defeat his enemies. By mastering all these elements together, you can truly make your own style of play. Each enemy requires a different strategy to beat him, and you'll be forced to improvise to beat the demon and raise your style rank. I didn't mind the backtracking it helped clear up the story, and gave you a chance to use Dante's different abilities and tactics on the same bosses. This was the first DMC game I ever played, but I still recommend it for anyone who likes "Hack n' Slash" or action games.
Rated 9 out of 10 by grady Great game
This game is one of my favorite DMC's, but many people might not like it because the game is focused mostly around Nero. Nero may look like a younger version of Dante, but dont take him lightly because he is half demon like Dante. He plays almost similar, but he uses a Devil Bringer, which allows him to manipulate enimies from a distance. When you do get the chance to play as Dante, it took me a while to adjust to him because I was so invested in Nero's combos. The story is actually pretty good, and their is plenty of replay ability especially when you want to purchase Dante and Nero's abilitles. Even though the game is good, their are issues that keep it from being good. The camera is clunky and awkward almost like Ninja Gaiden Sigma 2. There are also alot of repetition especially when you get to the Dante levels, because you will going the same places and fighting same bosses multiple of times. Final verdic this game is excellent and a must buy for anyone looking a good action game. I give this game a 8.5/10
Rated 9 out of 10 by actiongamer31314 a good devil may cry
I am a big fan of the dmc series so when this came out i absolutley had to have it. I went out and got it. I thought it was very good. the graphics are really good and the sound is excellent which you need in a game otherwise its kinda boring. It is one of the best devil may crys except for dmc 3. The gameplay is pretty much like the other devil may crys which is cool. It is the same concept as the other games, solve puzzles, kill demon like creatures, use a sword or a gun, and go through alot of obsticales. It is a pretty challenging game and its very fun. The camera is more like dmc 3 than 1 or 2 which is good. The length of the game is pretty good for a devil may cry game and the missions are really fun just like the other ones. The storyline is really interesting and well detailed which makes it easy to follow and you wont get lost in the storyline after awhile. The moves are like the other ones pretty much but some are different. Overall i reconmend this game to a devil may cry game or a person that has never played a devil may cry game in your life!!
Rated 3 out of 10 by warpass Typical capcom game
The control is about what you would expect from a resident evil game. slow and sluggish. cant jump very far or high, even though in the cutscenes the character jumps anywhere he likes. Whenever you spent points on a skill all the other skills raise in price. (some kind of unnecessary inflation) and basic skills like dash and double jump have to be purchased, therefor driving up all other skill prices. Many of the puzzles don't make sense. Like running through a building that only the character could possible make it through. (who uses this building when the character is not around?) jumping from wall to wall to reach a normal looking door that's halfway up the wall?And the battle system feels clumsy, and its just a little too hard to pull off a combo. they don't flow like in other games. The gun weapon feels useless as it takes about 50 shots to kill a low lvl enemy. Even spending points on a gun charge skill does very little. All i can say is rent this before you buy it, as its not very long either. can be finished in a few hours and returned to the store.
Rated 4 out of 10 by MadMax Gets old very fast!
The backtracking and fighting the same damn enemies over and over got old fast! I loved the art in this game, but thats about it. I got to mission 10 and then got extremely bored with this game. I exchanged it for Conan which had a lower rating and im enjoying it way more. Its too much of the same DMC and has nothing new to add to this gen. It gets very repetitive and the combat seems all the same slashing over and over again. Even the music that kicks in every time you enter a fight scene is the same annoying song EVERY TIME! The camera was annoying to. I really tried to like this game, but got bored way too quick. Get Conan instead if youre looking for a great hack and slash type game. Conan kinda reminds me of Sword of the Bezerk for the Dreamcast. Better enemies, moves, gameplay and bosses than in DMC. Surpassed my expectations and im very hard on games as i usually only like the big titles.
Rated 9 out of 10 by psyke28 one of the best..
This game is awesome. The graphics are smooth, controls are easy to perform, BGM gets you going, storyline is full of depth, combos? well.. got nothing to say but just: SMOKIN' SWEET! The only thing that gets in the downside of things are the levels. The DMD difficulty for this game is a little bit too easy, I would still say that DMC 3's DMD is WAY MORE CRAZY!! And I may say that its VERY CHALLENGING. I hate that they only made 20 missions in this game and that former protagonist Dante only had 7 of the 20 and yes, I would still prefer Dante over Nero, not that i got something against the new guy, but it's just that he is slow compared to Dante. And that Dante has a way more variety of moves and combos at his disposal, and he's just really so fun to play. I think that Nero can NEVER touch Dante once Dante goes to his DT state. Dante on his DT state is awesome, petty damages won't make him even flinch. Nero on the other hand, even on his DT state still goes down easily. Even with some flaws, this game is still awesome. I'm a DMC veteran (played 1,2,3 and now 4) and i never tried HUMAN mode on this game!
Rated 10 out of 10 by zxv39 The Devil will yell, "Awesome!"
Ok, so I had heard of the Devil May Cry series long ago, but I thought I would hate it so bad, B/C back then, I was into shooters a lot. Then now, my friend was bugging me and saying, "Dude, you gotta try out DMC 4!" So, I went onto PSN and downloaded the demo. It was pretty fun. I was surprised. So I got the game used and I loved it! DMC 4 is awesome! Great challenges. Great graphics, and everything! Now, I love RPG/Action video games! Oh my god! You need to get this game! The Devil will Yell, "Awesome!" Also, there is an enemy that will annoy you so much! But then you'll feel better... (play it for yourself to see). Ok, Final Words: You gotta get this game! Get it Used, b/c I will understand that some people won't like it (like my bro). So USED! But, it is an awesome! I recommend it, so check it out!
Rated 10 out of 10 by Zen Razor Amazing!
Dmc4 is one of the best dmc games in the world i know because i have it and have passed it the storyline is awesome its just that the place get annoying i don't like dark places like the castle but other then that it's good also Dante vs Nero was a big thing but for me i think Dante is better then Nero and that's what it showed in the game Some other people may think Nero is better then Dante but Dante is the best for me because he is the orginal if you played dmc 1 2 3 and you say Dante is lame then you must be crazy cause what is the reason you played all of the other ones in the first place but Nero is way more Agressive then Dante in this game And some people may think that Nelo from the first Dmc game is Nero but just saying that hes not Nelo is the Demon version of Vergil(Dantes brother).
