This is a curious game... there's nothing fundamentally bad about the game. The presentation is first rate, the gameplay is smooth. However... it just seems strangely dull.
Maybe I just don't care what happens to Dante, but there are lots of games I've enjoyed where I didn't care about the character. Ninja Theory's previous game, the incredibly underrated Enslaved, despite not having any "real world" characters (not that DmC is that real world, but you know what I mean...), was just way more enthralling, and I played that to a finish in a matter of a few days. With this... after two weeks I'm barely half way through, and don't really feel like trawling to the end (only the lack of any other releases have stopped me sending it back already).
Maybe it's because all the time I'm playing it, I'm thinking about the imminent God of War game, and I just know that's gonna be better in every way. So, I guess it's a reasonable filler, but ultimately its an instantly forgettable game.

This game kept the same fighting style from all the other DMC games and I felt they had made it flow much better in this title. This was one game I regret having to send back due to tight funds. The campaign was well told and gave a great insight of what had happened between dante and virgil. I feel as if ninja theory captured dante even though they did not use the run of the mill design of dante. So I give this game a 9/10 for keeping the DMC series going strong, the range of difficulties and play style was amazing and the combat was fantastic. I do feel they could have either added one or two more weapons, and I did not like the mechanic of the kablooey all that much. all and all a must play title if your a DMC fan.
