Devil May Cry 4
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!
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
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.
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!!
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.
When I first played this game I didnt think it would be that great but after 15 minutes of gamesplay I didnt want to stop playing its that addictive.
Capcom does it again!!
This is one amazing game I know people would disagree and say that its repetitive, but all hack and slash games are sort of repetitive. Let me start with the good, the storyline is simply amazing, think of the Raiden vs Vamp fight in MGS4 and picture that in almost every cut scene in Devil May Cry 4. The new character Nero who I thought was Dante at first because they look alike has a super powered arm which is called the devil bringer and this really brings a positive feature to the game as you get to slam enemies to the ground at will. You also get to play as Dante midway through the game which is a bonus but his levels are the same ones that Nero has already gone through and you'll fell like your doing a lot of backtracking which is not bad at all considering that Dante has his own set of moves and combos which are pretty fun. Ive also noticed that people are complaining about the difficulty of this game, well they obviously haven't play this game the hardest difficulty(Dante must die) which is extremely difficult. Now the bad, first of all the HUD map is horrible it is basically backwards and you'll have to look at the pause menu map for help, second of all the music, the same song plays over and over again when your fighting enemies which I guess bothers me the most because I hate heavy metal, and third of all I wish they added another attack button I mean the combat system is great don't get me wrong its just that i prefer a strong attack and light buttons instead of triangle as the only attack button, but I also like what they did with the left analog stick as it is a major part of the combat system. Overall this is a great game that fans of hack and slash or great story telling games would enjoy , and if your a fan of the series like me there is no way you can pass on this title. I mean how can you lose its only ** *****!!
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.
it is addicting
i love this game and have never had so much fun killing demons bare handed before. the best thing about the game is the sword and how it can be reved and heated up.
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.
