This Game starts off with some killer Graphics and the best set of Combos any game of this genre has ever offered. As it begun I was hooked looking forward to unleashing the Devil Bringer and taking advantage of the arsenal of combos I had at my disposal. As the game progressed tho something horrible happened..... The scenery Never Changes and you find yourself trampling through the same rooms over and over and OVER again. Not only do you remain in the same locale but you fight the same bosses over and over and OVER again. The first part of this game gets a 8 review but the remainder back tracking gives this game a Blemish it never overrides. And switching to Dante really throws you off considering Nero is much more powerful and everything you do to build up your abilities is just washed away as you make the transition.
This game had plenty of potential but the developers just got lazy in bringing it together. I would recommend that this game be bought at a later date for a much lower price then its retailed at. I beat it, and returned it for a measly 18bucks.

Bad

Frustrating, bad camera angles, annoying gameplay

The game is really pretty, and the music is fantastic. But the jump-puzzles using your "Devil Bringer" (a grappling hook type device) are HORRIBLE. The camera angles switch on you in flight, and if you fail in your run, you have to start all over ... the point where I decided I was sick of being frustrated and not having any fun was only in the 3rd mission. If you miss the run of grappling swings at all, or don't let go in time between swings, or the targeting system locks onto the wrong thing - you go tumbling down and have to fight your way out of room full of boring enemies again, before getting another shot at the sequence. I guess it's some sort of 'punishment,' but I play games to be entertained, not to be punished. It's too bad because the game is really beautiful, but I'm putting it back in the mailbox right now.

Really Bad

Boring, Rehashed Material

The graphics in the game look alright...but, I have definitely seen better. They are nothing that will make you fall out of your seat over. The game play is pretty bland..the main enemies are dirt easy...especially if you've played DMC 3. The first two bosses are rehashes of Cerberus from DMC3...the 4th boss...the angel I think...is a rehash of a mini-boss in the same game! I'm sorry...this just got boring and I had to send it back without even bothering to complete it..i became bored out of my mind. I'd give this game a rent at best...don't even think abt buying it though. You'll be definitely be disappointed.
