...don't try to compare this to the original Devil May Cry series. This game should be expected to be an entity of its own. It follows the story line of the previous Devil May Cry games, which I enjoyed, but style-wise it is a very different game.
The weapons are pretty amazing (and pretty much the same as before). They use an upgrade method. The graphics and gameplay will give a good time.
The bosses are the hardest part, but after figuring out how the bosses are programmed, they CAN be defeated. I played at the hardest mode, and I only had serious difficulty on the last 2 levels. But it's a beatable game, and you can change the difficulty at the beginning of a new level.
It was a normal length game: 20 levels/ 10 hour game play.
