Rated 9 out of 10 by DanteSparda1 good game for hardcore gamers, and casual players
devil may cry 4 is a good game there are a few faults on this game like the introduction to this new character nero, real fans of the series will get angry because the protagonist is nero now not dante. Yes eventually you will get to use dante but is only for like 7 missions at first i though nero was better then dante but once i max out both characters its very clear who has the superior edge and that is dante nero is just a punk and the only good thing about him is his devil arm but if you take that out he is very weak, just to prove my point try to play all the missions with nero without using his arm,and play as dante then you can see who is better. and the second problem of this game is the sound not the music in battle but the music for some cutscene is so high that you can barely hear what they are saying like in mission 10 when nero talks to dante. But these are the only problems in this game that annoyed me but everything else in this game is perfect in my book so i give this game a 9.8 out of 10
Rated 10 out of 10 by rofl waffle devil may cry is the s#!t
i love devil may cry4. this game is amazing.i have only played one before this and it was the best game ever in my opinion. hopefully you people will heed my word and buy it. well the length of the games is amazing as you start unlocking the higher difficulties enemies become stronger, more varied and change up their strategies. the graphics are amazing running at 60 fps and 1080p definition has never loked better on an action game. the storyline is awesome yet confusing. the good news about the storyline is that it opens up the plot for another game regarding neros origins and the customer with the password. the controls are excellent your combos will never get mixed up as your fighting and the only time you will have trouble with the combo system is if you set your chracter to automatic(wimps). the story manages to put so much emotion through i got goosebumps watching the intro video and felt so bad when at other parts in the game. warning if you buy and play this game you will become a fan of the series...
Rated 7 out of 10 by Zahl EXCITIN... The Game Ended Before I Finished Typing
This is one of the most exciting, fast-paced action games out there. It's sad to say that it probably will take me longer to write this review than to beat the game. I jest of course, but the game really is only a few hours long.
Every second counts. If the game wasn't so short, I'd have rated it a 9.
Rated 10 out of 10 by JasonJ Devil May Cry, another great game from the series
DMC4, is an awesome game, don't know why anyone would say otherwise, and the storyline is great, at least I really enjoyed it. I don't find it repetitive at all, unless maybe you're trying to beat the game in all of the difficulties, it's really cool you have to fight your way through many different bad guys, work your way through puzzles, beat secret missions to unlock blue orbs to bring your health meter up, and the boss fights are just incredible. You get to play as Nero and later you can unlock and play as Dante, they both each have their own set of weapons and abilities to use. I don't know why people are saying it gets boring you always do the same moves, I mean Dante has 4 different stances to use, he has 3 different guns you can either use his coyote-A which is a buckshot good for close range damage, or Ebony and Ivory, he also has a sword. Later on through out the missions, you unlock a bunch of different weapons for Dante, don't wanna give them away and spoil it for anyone who is interested in buying this game, and hasn't played it yet.
Rated 10 out of 10 by NelsonG THE BEST GAME so Far
This game is so far the best ive played and it is just to much fun. I like the fact that there is a DMC slide show to show other what happened to the previous DMC games since this one is for the XBox. I enjoy the new character, Nero, since you start off as him. He brings new strategies with his Devil Bringer. This game started off with simple fighting and went off to using all your weapons to your advantage to get more points and a good overall game score. The music is fantastic with the fighting and it is fun to listen to it. The bosses are fun to slay and destroy. Dante gets really awesome weapons to send all those demons back to the gates to stay there for eternity. This game gets harder and harder when you pick more intense game modes. The minute you start this game, you will not stop playing it until you beat it on almost every difficulty. This game should be recommended to any gamer and they would enjoy it fully.
Rated 7 out of 10 by PapaBear Didn't I already do this?
This game has 3 great things going for it... First it's graphics, Second it's story line, Three it's history. Other then that this game gets boring very fast. I felt it was very repetitive and lacked any real character. You'll do the same moves over and over and over again and after you've destroyed the first hundred characters you'll feel you're repeating your self over again every level. It's your typical hack and slash game, jump here, jump there, room locks you in kill a bunch of badies and wow door unlocks, and what do you think will happen in the next room... your locked in again and have to kill a bunch of the same bad guys just to unlock the door. I grew tired of it. I felt it needed more puzzles and customization of the character. Now don't get me wrong it is a great game, however I feel it's worth only one play through. the replay quality of it is next to nil. Rent it, beat it and be done with it.
Rated 10 out of 10 by Luna Nightshade Completely Captivating!
This game is one of the BEST games EVER. Period. The controls are smooth and the upgrading and fight style is perfect. If regular gameplay is not hard enough for you, that's ok, just play in devil hunter mode....keep going, it only gets better and better. Replay value is EXTREMELY high because you can continue to upgrade your heroes by simply replaying the missions. There is a perfect mix by allowing you to play two different characters at separate points in the game. Visually, this game is STUNNING. It is gorgeous. Nothing more to say. The storyline however, is one of the best parts of this game. It is gripping and completely pulls you full force into the game making you hardly able to wait until the cutscene so you can find out what will happen next. I almost wept when I finished it, but it was ok.....I just started over. This game ROCKS. Easily deserves a 10++++ out of 10 and MORE than worth WHATEVER you pay for it. I would pay double for this game, because it is simply that good. EVERYONE should OWN their own copy of this game......it is easily one of the best games of all time!

this game really amazed me in all the right ways. im a big fan of the series its is one of the best games on the 360 console i think. it can be confusing at time. but some times i wanted to take my controller and bang it on the ground. it can feel like you have done this over and over again at times. the boss battles are the best. i love boss battles. controls can be challenging at times to pull of special moves. storyline is great you really dont have to be a fan of the other devil may cry games. to me the story is simple to understand. lenth its pretty long maybe 6 hours or more play time and theres diffrent modes to play on to keep you busy. but they game is very hard. you will be mad everytime that bos kicks your but. that will happend alot in this game. overall if you have the money buy it. its a great buy long play hours to keep you busy.
Rated 7 out of 10 by skateinferno Your typical Japanese hack 'n slash adventure game
This game is a perfect example of a typical hack and slash fantasy game. There is plenty of fun, violence, and smart remarks to go around(as to be expected from Devil May Cry), but the repetitive missions and annoying save system are a major distraction. For one, unless you get through your current mission(levels if you will) you cannot save the game, and if you turn off your console before completing one of these missions (in case of a power outage or emergency), even saving in the pause menu won't help, because it will still make you start back at the mission's beginning, no matter how far into it you were. That is probably my biggest problem with this game. Aside from those things this is a great game. I also don't like that you don't get to play as Dante (Devil May Cry 1, 2, and 3's protagonist) all that much.
Rated 9 out of 10 by Mike9253 Magnificent Game!!!!
This game is an interesting game, it had me caught from the start to the end and once I beat it, I was hungering for more. The Controls are good there are some good combos you can use, the length of game was ok I thought it could have been longer, but still I was satisfied with it very much. The visuals were just right I was captured by the beauty of them. The storyline was great that was mainly what influenced me to keep playing the game just to see what was to come next. Nero and Dante were great characters, my personal favorite was Dante his weapons were awesome, but Nero was real fun to play with too. Honestly this game is worth your money at least I think it is, ANYONE ELSE WHO THINKS THIS GAME IS BORING DOESNT FULLY UNDERSTAND GAMES PERIOD! I've been a gamer since I was 5 and I know a great game when I play it!
