Devil May Cry 4 is the latest installment of Capcom's franchise and it delivers over-the-top action, a storyline which drives you to find answers and top of the line graphics.
The game focuses on Nero, his demon right hand and the trouble it causes him. Dante, the series favourite, still makes an appearance as you progress through the game and both characters show their own flair and play very differently.
Though some may find that “button-mashing” can get you by, the avid gamer will see more depth in stringing together combos and use of juggling to increase their style ranking, Triple S being the paramount. This in turn gives you more points to spend on upgrading your characters and teaching them new attacks and skills. It's rewarding and challenging.
Also, once you have the ability to use your inner-demon, your attacks change when they are active. Especially on bosses. It's great to watch how a grab animation looks different when Nero unleashes it on a boss with or without demon mode activated.
Also, there are many levels of difficulty to cater to all skill levels and challenging secret stages which will really test your mettle, should you choose to take them on or skip them. It may be tough, but the rewards are great.
What you have here is a great action title, which is also flexible enough to cater to different skilled players. It has added replayability and an engrossing storyline. All this is meshed with breath-taking graphics, a solid musical score to get the blood pumping and visceral combat.
