Really Bad

Made me cry

2 minutes to open gamefly envelope and put in PS3.
20 minutes to download and install additional files for game play.
20 minutes of boring cut scenes for story setup.
10 minutes of annoying tutorials.
20 minutes of actual game play, smashing the same three buttons.
3 minutes to eject and put back into gamefly envelope.
total: 1-Hour 15-minutes.

It took that much time to realize this game is over rated and over hyped. it reminded me of some of the really bad anime on saturday morning these days. that includes the campy lines and a ridiculous premise that is all over the place. maybe the story gets better later in the game but i couldn't get interested enough to want to find out. the monsters were forgettable. the fixed camera made things very predictable and did not allow for exploring the surroundings.

one the bright side, the graphics were nice.

i am normally easily impressed but this game really let me down.

I don't usually write reviews but this game is really a total waste. This is my first experience with the Devil May Cry and absolutely my last. Here is a list of things I didn't like.

#1 - it took about 15 minutes to install the game ( all the really bad cut scenes I guess)
#2 - The really bad cut scenes. There are way too many. It seems like every minute of gameplay I have to sit through another minute or two of a cut scene. And the script in general... the teen angst attitude of the main character is freaking laughable.
#3 - the game play is way too easy. First time playing I didn't die for about 40 minutes. I'm really not that good. It was just really hard to die. The moves were very repetitive and got boring very quickly. So boring I had to return it after 1 day.

Don't waste your life with this garbage.

This game is not fun. The graphics are nice, and I like how you have infinite bullets, use of a sword, and can quick select who you want to fight. The stylish point system however, is a total turn off. Every monster you fight you need to fight stylishly to earn stupid points. I think if this game didn't grade you on how you kill the monsters, it would be a lot better. Also this game punishes you at certain points if you fail at solving a puzzles. It makes you fight the same dumb monsters. The mini games aren't fun either. You just keep fighting more monsters. Overall just a poor excuse for a game.
