This is the first DMC game I've played. I'm not sure why I've skipped on the other so far but after finishing this one, I'm gonna give the others a try. This is simply a well-designed action game with an amazing combat system, amazing level design and memorable boss encounters. As crazy as the story gets, it even finds room for humor (e.g., the cut scene where Dante & Virgil playfully argue who is better). Even on default difficulty, it's very challenging and I died quite often on battle scenes due to not analyzing enemy movement or using the dodge button. There are moments of traversal that require you to use your whip and jump boost that have to be executed at the right time; I was quite clumsy in those moments but I got the hang of them. Overall, a fun and thrilling action game that I dedicated two afternoons (and evenings) to finishing.
