Dante continues his trend of mind numbing hack and slash, over the top stylish gun- and swordplay and general badassery that have made Devil May Cry a hit for the past decade.
While the first thing people notice about this game has always been and will always be about Dante's new look, it doesn't stop there. He retains everything else that made him the icon he was while spanning four games and two console generations, plus an HD Collection (not to mention the bane of Ryu and Deadpool in MvC3). I can't say much for the story as I haven't played all the way through this one yet, but the combat plays true to the series core, mixing several different weapons at once and doing it with all the style that white-haired Dante copyrighted years ago, and that's what really matters.
I don't like difficult games. I got to chapter 6 before I hit a wall and used up all my gold orbs. It was the same routine, over and over. Nothing interesting. Nothing to explore. Got boring very quickly. Give it a 2 for nice graphics.
