Excerpt: It's been nearly three years since the last Devil May Cry was released and since then, the once ground-breaking series has seen a number of challengers, most notably God of War . With the release of Devil May Cry 4 , the series' "next-gen" debut, Capcom wanted to show that the series wasn't about to relinquish the throne without a fight.

Nero brings an awesome dynamic to the franchise. Combine that with Dante's parallel mission and the game is absolutely over-the-top. It's a somewhat repetitive and frustrating hack and slash affair, but it's an adventure you won't forget. Here's looking forward to a fifth installment!
