Summary

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 themselves 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?

It's a crying shame, because with a little more effort, DMC4 could have been a genuine contender for 2008 game of the year. As it is it's a brilliant, addictive, just plain cool hack and slash action game which goes some way to bringing the series back to its initial lustre. There are some high quality contenders to the throne - the God of War and Ninja Gaiden series' spring to mind - but there's something uniquely appealing about DMC.

Devil May Cry 4 is totally saved by its combat system. It’s deep and rewarding, no matter what level of player you are--making hacking and slashing your way through waves of repetitive enemies still fun. The rest of the game is beginning to show its age, but the weapon and character customization are addictive enough to motivate old devil hunters to learn new tricks.

The combat itself is a lot of fun. It's worth noting here that the game's difficulty is nowhere near as ridiculous as DMC3's; if anything, it's too easy. If you still find yourself frustrated, though, you can simplify things by switching to an automatic combo system, or using three automated level-up paths instead of manually picking out improvements for Nero and Dante. The carnage here is the best and most over-the-top the series has pulled off to date, and whether you're playing as Nero or Dante (which you will for the last 40 percent of the game), each brings something new and cool to the table.
