I was very sceptical about buying this game so I rented it for one week. I have bitter-sweet feelings about this game to be honest. To reiterate other reviewers' gripes about repetitive enemies - yes, this is an issue. If one was to plummet off a ledge and end up in a previous room, the same old baddies would spring back to life and to make things worse, the game also locks you in a lot of the time even if you have already cleared the area once so you can't simply run off. I am not even half way through and I am finding this tedious. Graphically it is OK. I expect good graphics from my PS3 and this is the minimum quality I would expect but I am not blown away by them. The music and cheesy lines are as repetitive as the enemies. He does get on my nerves with his cheesy one-liners after the umpteenth time of hearing them. As for storyline, I haven't got a clue. There is this young lad with a dodgy arm who appears to have gone OTT with the peroxide, an angry bloke and a squealing young woman who are all having a bit of a to-do over God knows what. I have never played any Devil May Cry before so I selected 'Human' mode (for newbies) as oppose to 'Devil Hunter'and it's a good job because the moves are so complex they make my head spin. I cannot remember so many different combinations of button pressing. Luckily there is an automatic option which enables the novice to execute fancy combos by erm, button bashing away at any old attack button and I press all of the buttons all the time i.e. button bashing and the bad guys die in spectacular fashion (until now because I am stuck on an unbeatable boss). I am starting to gain some control over what this young whipper snapper Nero does but it's tricky and he is quite skitterish to control and there are so many moves one could perform but the player is not given 'thinking time'. There is also a complicated status area on the screen but I am not too sure what it all means just yet. Something about petrol I think. I am not a big fighting game fan and this does err to the combat side more than puzzles/exploration. There are some quiet moments in the game (when you are stuck in one room) and a few easy puzzles to break up the bashing. The game utilizes every available button for bashing on, even the select button is used to kick folk with. I am sure there are people out there who know all the moves like biffa-bonka bashing table roller or whatever they are called but my mind is too slow and maybe I am too old (at 34) for this game. It is confusing trying to work out how pressing triangle four times differs from pressing triangle three times then pressing triangle. The mind boggles. To summarize: Not a dreadful game by any means and I have enjoyed playing it over the last few days but I think Nero needs a chill pill and maybe a nice sit down with a cuppa and a book (or is that me?). I can see why perhaps some people love this franchise as I love my Silent Hill games and maybe I will buy it second hand in a year or so and have another go. If anybody is uncertain as I was then I would strongly recommend a weeks rental on it. A week is probably long enough to complete it anyway. Oh, there are lots of colourful glowing things to collect which are fun because you can buy nice, helpful things with them. i really best DMC 1, 2, 3

I'm a big fan of the DMC franchise, and this game does not disapoint. When my PS2 decided to "pack up" I thought DMC was no more for me, that was until I got a sweet deal on a PS3, and then I heard about DMC4. At first I was a bit skeptical of this game, but after seeing the trailer a few (dozen) time's and remembering the enjoyment I got from previous DMC game's I decided to pick it up. The opening sequence is stunning. The entire game is fantastic.

Plently of bosses and bad guys to slash to pieces and some decent puzzles along the way! Play as Dante half way through was excellent too! (the good old days) All in all a good game, exceelnt game play and good graphics

  A great gothic adventure.

Nero is a very cool hip young character who is like Dante when he was young, he's a bit more sensable when it comes to women because his love is Kyrie....The thing with DMC is the gothic cheese, it look's scary and that but deep down it's far from it. The storyline isn't great by any mean's neccessary, the combo's are clever yet repetitive but for some reason i still seem to love this game! The devil bringer is very useful, playing as Dante is refreshing after getting "too" used to Nero. I think this game need's a major change for it to get any better though, but still good fun, the boss fight's are epic. 4/5

  Good but not great

The 4th instalment in this series is a case of more of the same with better/HD Graphics. Cool action sequences and boss battles and being able to play as Dante later on however do not hide the fact that latter stages do get repetitive with all that backtracking.

If you're new to the series then go for it for others though proceed with caution.

  Classic

Where to start? This was the first devil may cry game I played, and having heard a lot about the other games , I was excited to see what all the hype was about. At first glance I could'nt really understand the appeal of a game that, while engrossing and graphicaly impressive, lacked any real diversity and imagination. I stuck with it though because the action was enjoyable enough, and the story line caught my attention. I was rewarded with a fantastic gaming expeience wich I saw through 'till the end, and while the basic premise is... well basic, The Capcom quality and atmosphere shines through. I enjoyed this game so much that I went out and bought the previous three, and that should be praise enough for any games influence. Playing DMC 1, 2, and 3 proved very enjoyable but also highlighted all the improvements evident in the latest incarnation. The addition of Nero a new hero complete with new moves and powers; who you'll be i control of for most of the game is, in my oppinion a better crafted hero than the previous Dante. What we have then overall is a solid action game that keeps on challenging, and will see you devote quite a few hours of your time playing.Die hard fans will no doubt be of the opinion that this is by far the best in the series, eliminating much of the prequels flaws. Great fun 'hack and slash' shooting entertainment wrapped up in one very pretty package!.
