AWESOME THE TRUE DMC2

The true sequel to DMC. Now to say that, this game would need a whole bunch to back it up and thetas exactly what it does. DMC4 has the graphics the combos, difficulty, and every thing else u would expect from the sequel. DMC4 brings back DANTE and his kid bro as i like to say NERO. Sadly DANTE shares his starlight with NERO but that's ok that's NERO alright. I havent beaten the game yet so i cant really say anything bad about it cause im only on mission 6 so i got a while to go but let me say that the bosses are awesome. the monsters are kick As s and there this really hot ninja chick (HOT) so if i were u id buy the game cause A. capcom is beast B. i said so and C. its DMC

Very Good

Perfected, but bland

Devil May Cry 4 will certainly wow you with its visual presentation, but may bore you with its gameplay. While Devil May Cry fans will love DMC4, those who are new to the series might find themselves bored out of their minds.

Now, I'm not saying Devil May Cry 4 is bad. In fact, it's actually very enjoyable in terms of presentation. The graphics are amazing, action sequences flow smoothly, and the combat system works amazingly well. Everyone who plays will easily be able to pull off successful combo moves and tear up the battlefield. DMC4 truly perfects the beat-em-up gametype, and you'll find those opening missions enjoyable. but after a while, the game becomes more of the same, never really innovating. And while Nero may be a new character, him and Dante look a little too similar (I think we can do without white hair and the attitude for once, Capcom). Boss fights, too, are really more of the same.

While DMC4 will appeal to fans of the series, those who may be new to the series (this is the first multiplatform DMC) could find it repetitive. But since you're probably a gamefly member, give it a rent. It might grow stale, but it's definitely worth a little bit of your time.

Good

Button mashing king, great graphics, camera issues

Controls take a while to get use to and then you start the button mashing. My hand was hurting after playing. The graphics are great but I was upset that it wasn't more free roaming. Some camera problems. The music is over the top with some irritating metal rock.
Your fingers and hand will be killing you after playing for awhile. The control system has a learning curve. Just to many different combinations to learn.

I'm sure many will like this game but I wouldn't put it on tthe level of Bioshock or Mass Effect.
