I'm not going to explain the plot becuase you have probably read it elsewhere, so i'll just share how i felt about the actual game. I had never owned or played another DMC title, but the success of the first title in particular and the excitement surrounding the fourth installment was enough to make me pre-order the game. It arrived on the day of release and i was somewhat inquisetive as to what the game would actually be like. Once i started to play i reolised that the game would be something special. The difference between 40 frames and 60 frames per second is highly noticeable, especially when you are slicing and dicing different demons.
That is another thing that is so defining about this game; the demons. While the starting demons are easy to see to, you will find some of the later ones more of a challenge. The gorgeous graphics within the game complement the overall feeling of near perfection. The game is addictive, enthralling and (possibly) an early darkhorse for game of the year. What really gripped me were some of the later cutscenes which were nothing short of epic. The very first cutscene which sees Nero rushing to attend a young girls singing performance really sums up the game. we see Nero slicing up demons in harmony with the performance that he is missing, everything just gels.
If it was my advice, just buy the game. It is highly unlikely that you will not enjoy the game in the slightest and while there are some pretty tedious moments you are rewarded with huge boss battles and addictive gameplay. At a tenner less than most games, it should be an offense not to buy this game.
Capcom have really outdone themselves, roll on Resident Evil 5.
