Easily my favourite game on the Playstation 3,
This review is from: Devil May Cry 4 (PS3) (Video Game)
As an avid Devil May Cry fan, I was really looking forward to this fourth instalment, as I had played all three previous games and loved every minute of it (including the second one which most consider the weakest, but that's not true) so I couldn't wait to start playing this. At first I had doubts as the main protagonist Dante is now secondary and Nero is the main hunter for this game, but I have to say I was not disappointed at all.
Firstly the gameplay - absolutely superb what made the first three games so memorable was the extreme swordplay and here with Nero you also have the ability of throwing enemies with the use of Nero's devil arm which completely changes the way the game is played out. As with all DMC games, the more points you earn the better skills you upgrade. Nero can also use his devil arm to grapple not only demons but also the main bosses so you get to see some truly sick amounts of carnage.
Now onto Dante, he is as cool as ever, returning with the four styles from DMC 3, that can now be switched at random, so you can pull of some nifty combos. Apart from the gameplay, the graphics are absolutely beautiful and looks even better on a HD TV.
The first 12 missions begin with Nero, then Dante takes over from Mission 13 to Mission 19, with Nero returning for the last two missions. I've noticed most reviewers have stated the game is quick and easy to complete, this is only partially true as the game can be completed in a day, however to fully appreciate the game, the aim is to complete all twenty missions with a S (Super) ranking, that's where the challenge really is.
I have only had the PS3 for about eight months, and I have played some nice games (Mortal Kombat VS DC, Street Fighter 4, GTA 4, The Incredible Hulk, Uncharted) but the one game I constantly play more than any other game is Devil May Cry 4, because its so brilliant, I can't stop playing it.
The game also has the familiar extras, such as bloody palace mode (more of a survival mode really), costumes, artwork and videos.
Cant wait for Devil May Cry 5.
