Devil May Cry 4
PERFECT FOR FANS
THIS GAME IS A GOOD ADDITION TO THE SERIES. THE SOUNDTRACK IS GREAT AS USUAL. THE CINEMATICS ARE CAPTIVATING AND GAMEPLAY IS ACTUALLY PRETTY GOOD TOO.
The original DMC series goes out with a bang
Ahh Devil May Cry 4, What even can I say about. If you were a fan of the first 3 GET THIS. If you haven't already of course. This game has something of a bad reputation, and in a small way for a reason, but it's still fantastic. One thing a lot of people tend to dislike about it (not that I necessarily dislike) is that this game is centered around a new main character, a young Demon/Human mix who falls within the lineage Sparda by the name of Nero. Nero is a different character from Dante on the surface, he's rather serious and somber, and visibly struggles with his identity as a part demon (I don't say half because they're never clear how much of each he is). Nero is a part of a strange church that worships Sparda, and is roped into his demon slaying journey after he witnesses a certain demon hunter we all know and love murder the high priest of this church. Also, to put one concern to rest, if we're worried about missing our old pal Dante in this game, fret not. He's a big part of this game's story and yes you will get to play as him. Unfortunately, the approach they took to using the two of them was that they gave Nero a lot of missions and Dante a lot of missions (but a few less) in the same story mode, and Dante's are 90% back tracking. Personally I as too jazzed about hopping back into Dante's shoes to care, but others didn't have the same experience from what I understand. But anyway, enough about it's story (which is pretty good), on to everything else. First off gameplay, Devil May Cry always shows well in this department, this is no exception. Nero can slash and shoot like Dante, and he can also use his demonicly powered arm which can extend for all sorts of fun little ways to beat enemies. As for Dante he's well...Dante, need I say more? Read a review of the first game or something if you don't know what he can do. Boss fights are probably the best the series has seen in this game. They work in a similar fashion to a boss in a Zelda game (if you don't know what I'm talking about stop reading this and go pick up some), they each have their own special weakness you can exploit (mostly using Nero's arm) and require some strategy to defeat. If you don't want to do it that way you can just charge in and slash like a madman, but you won't do as much damage this way. As Dante this is ho you'll have to fight mostly, but Dante's power compensates for that. You get a nice variety of weapons as always for both characters. The Graphics are the best I've seen on the PS3 yet (although I haven't even had mine for a year yet and only have 4 games so far, so this isn't saying much). The soundtrack is probably also the best in this one the series has scene. It gets you pumped at the right moments, and gets you emotional at the right ones too. This soundtrack backs some very good voice acting. For once we have a reprisal for Dante, Reuben Langdon returned from the third entry in the series and does a spectacular job again. As an anime fan, I got rather gitty at the rest of the cast (and of you are too you will), as there are so many voices throughout the game you'll recognize. Johnny Yong Bosch (Ichigo Kurosaki from Bleach, Kiba from Wolf's Rain and too many others to count) does a fine job as Nero, Stephanie Sheh (Hinata Hyuga from Naruto, Orihime Inoue from Bleach and again too many others to count) gives a shocking performance as Kyrie the female lead in this game and Liam O'Brien (Gaara from Naruto, Jushiro Ukitake from Bleach and others) does a fair job as the games primary antagonist Sanctus. Overall if you're a fan of Devil May Cry, or like a good action game pick this one up (if you're the latter you may want to play Devil May Cry 3 and the first Devil May Cry, and yes in that order)..
Great game for a great series.
This game was awesome. I have been a fan for a long time of this series. The only let down of it so far was DMC2. But this game tied the stories together and gave you a new character to use. I mean I love Dante just as much as anyone and I know DMC2 did as well but Nero and his demon arm were my best friend going through this game.
Great DMC game
This game was incredible it was everything I expected from a devil may cry game. The only thing was the story could have been a bit longer but thats just my opinion.
The Great Devil Hunters.
Dante and the new character Nero are such awesome and good devil hunters who just can't be beat. This awesome game has great graphics, intense action, a good story, and some interesting characters as well as some really challenging and difficult boss fights. However, the controls in the game are a bit ackward at times and will require a good quick hand into to beat some of the more difficult challenges in the game. But once you've beaten this game you'll want to go back and play it again and again.
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
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!
the game is awesome about after 15 minutes of play time i suggest you guys buy this game and play it for a long time
The Best Devil May Cry!
I really like the Devil May Cry franchise and hack and slash games. Ninja Gaiden is my favorite hack and slash game though. Hack and slash games are basically beat em' ups with weapons. Devil May Cry was my first hack and slash gane ever an instanly got hooked. When Devil may Cry made it's debut on PS3 I got it and it was fantastic. It's the best DMC yet. Dante comes to a church and kills a pope ruining a sparaying ceremony to Sparda, Dante's father. I won't say anything else because I'd be ruining it. It's a great game and the best Devil May Cry.
DMC 3 was better i think but this was DOPE!
i remeber when this game barely came out i wanted a ps3 just cause of this game haha now i finally got this game at a great price! I RECOMMEND IT! the story is always great and its a perfect action game!
