Devil May Cry 4 for Xbox 360

Overview
Long ago the Dark Knight Sparda rebelled against the dark emperor and waged a one-man war to save humanity. Thousands of years later, a religious organization worships this renowned savior and has taken it upon them selves to rid the world of all evil. Residing in Fortuna, this organization is known as the ”Order of the Sword,” and is made up of an elite group of ”Holy Knights.” One day a young knight named Nero witnesses Sparda’s legendary son Dante slaughter his fellow warriors. Has the renowned devil hunter turned his back on mankind? What does this encounter mean for these two individuals? Nero's new proclivities definitely tweak the formula, yet the fundamental DMC gameplay remains wonderfully intact.

Few games boast such excellent controls -- you'll instantly find yourself pulling off impressive combos thanks to tight, responsive, and intuitive setup offered here. And you'll feel a real incentive to master combat, as the game constantly rewards stylish play with a branching tree of unlockable skills and attacks that expand your death-dealing repertoire. DMC's addictive gameplay provides the primary draw, the series has a solid audiovisual legacy, as well. DMC4 looks predictably slick, with an excellent mix of hyperdetailed interiors, dense urban areas, and expansive natural environs. You'll spy a few glaring inconsistencies (the forest stage suffers from lighting problems and infrequent bouts of slowdown)

GamePlay
Gameplay is where all the fun's at in DMC 4. The pace of the game is dictated by the constant spawning of bizarre monsters and demonic entities, most of which Nero has to slice and blast into oblivion. The gameplay mechanics revolve around using Nero's abilities and weapons to gain additional, more complex, combos; both for melee and ranged combat. It takes a bit of practice to memorize all the moves. Whenever you're stumped, you may access the skills list, where a description is offered on how to pull off each move or combo. Also, at the beginning of the game, you can set the difficulty to "Human," ideal for newcomers to the series, or "Devil Hunter," perfect for hardcore DMC players. Both provide a satisfying single-player experience.

While most of the game puts players into the role of Nero, there's a portion where you may also play as Dante (a welcomed tribute to the old games and a nice moment for DMC fans). When playing as Dante, you'll notice that there's a variety of new moves that are definitely an improvement over earlier games. Newcomer Nero, on the other hand, remains the central character in this installment and you're bound to get a kick out of his fighting styles, which involve the use of his demonic arm (the Devil Bringer), a powerful Red Queen sword (that can be charged up to deliver more damage) and a revolver referred to as the Blue Rose, along with other abilities. There are literally dozens and dozens of combinations with which to create havoc as you chop your way through enemy ranks. I like the story line of this game and the graphics are pretty good and the videos are awesome. First time playing a DMC game and i am pretty happy with it. Pretty easy to learn some camera angles i do not like but other then that it really is a great game if you never played a DMC game before please try it on easy or you will just get frustrated as all heck.



Characters
