Excerpt: Devil May Cry has been going along for some time already in the world of games. The series is about the halfblood Dante (son of the demon Sparda and a human woman), who with a coolness that even Bruce Willis can learn of, sends all kinds of demon brood back to square one.
Conclusion: Concept: Try to bleed more from the already-exsanguinated Saw franchise
Graphics: Impressive environments are sullied by repetition and awful character design
Sound: Terrible voice-acting, missing sound effects, and a beeping life meter make this an auditory nightmare
Playability: Can you handle...
Excerpt: The Devil May Cry series has been predominantly aimed at the more adept of gamers, requiring quick reflexes as well as general skill to see each game through to the end. DMC2 was the sole game of the three to deviate from this path, but was all too easy (at least on the default level of difficulty)...
Excerpt: Have you ever woke up in the middle of the night and said to yourself, Gee, I wish I had a demonic arm so I could dribble demons like basketballs. Well get your party hat on, because Devil May Cry 4 gives you plenty of that hot action.
Excerpt: The best word to describe Devil May Cry 4 in the current gaming landscape is ‘anomaly.’ Even over a year after its release, the game delivers an experience that is welcome and necessary in a gaming world dominated by first-person shooters, slower paced action offerings and two-bit puzzle games.
Conclusion: Overall Devil May Cry 4 did not live up to Devil May Cry 3’s legacy. The level design is poor, and there isn’t much to do after you beat the game. That isn’t to say that the game isn’t good, because it has enough fun-factor in it to warrant a purchase for some.
Summary: Parents need to know that both protagonists use weapons, such as swords and shotguns, to destroy enemies, which are primarily netherworld creatures. This is a game about killing demons, so players will see plenty of blood, especially on end-level boss fights.
Summary: Devil May Cry 4 is the fourth installment in Capcom's series starring Dante, the gunslinging demon hunter. DMC4 will introduce a new hero, Nero, who possesses a demonic arm that can pull in enemies or use them as projectiles.
Conclusion: In short, if you haven’t worked it out by now, Devil May Cry 4 could and should have been so much more than it ultimately was. I’m sure Alanis Morrissette would appreciate the irony of the fact that the very people that Capcom appear to have alienated by their controversial cross-platform release...
