Summary: This was somewhat underwhelming, as I might have expected too much. Vergil does have some sweet moves, but it feels like a lot more could have been done. Level designs were not even close to the base game.
Summary: The topic word for this piece of DLC is lazy. The level designs were lazy, and not much thought was put in to them. They were a hassle to play on. The concept was: small, non-innovative maps, where wave after wave of boring enemies appeared. What a drag this was. I did not enjoy my first play through of this DLC. Vergil's move set was really boring, and far from fleshed out. I missed my double jump, and Dante's move set the entire play through.
Summary: This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. While this was a nice time passer and a nice challenge. Bloody Palace breaks the game's loot and money concept, giving you practically 2000-5000 red orbs at the end of every time you play this (Even more if you're really good at this game), and then carry it over to your main game. You can even quit this mode mid-game, and still keep all the red orbs and unlock slots you earned from this.
Summary: This is an amazing expansion pack. First off, Vergil plays very differently than Dante. Whereas Dante is a furious button pressing frenzy, Vergil's strikes are more deliberate and you feel like your in a more zen-like state. All this is achieved while STILL bringing the awesome, over the top style. It's a good few hours of gameplay and well worth the cash.
Summary: This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. This DLC feels like it could have been way better. It's not that it isn't enjoyable, it just feels like it was rushed out before they could iron out all the kinks. The storyline is decent, though not brilliantly explained. Basically Vergil is turning into a bit of a nutbar while developing a major inferiority complex.
Summary: Virgil's Downfall takes place right after the game is complete, you walk through your own mini Limbo restoring your power, I would go into details but I don't want to spoil anything. The fighting style of Virgil is much faster than Dante due to Virgil's fancy teleporting skills. Combat starts out slow due to the fact you have very little abilities, but even when you unlock more, it is still difficult to rack up the style points.
Summary: What you need to know is this, DMC Vergils Downfall is not a bad game. It's one of those elegant masterpieces in which Dante is getting more kickass for the hungry fans out there that love him.
