Devil May Cry 4:First Impressions

Posted by Gloqwi Monday, March 3, 2008

Well, I finally played Devil May Cry 4, and it seems to be an action packed game. This is what I thought of it for playing for 2 hours...

OK, well first off, I played on the difficulty mode that is not Human mode, so I didn't get past this game easily. But, I didn't get past it with any frustrating problems though. I only died very few times and I the only time I remember was facing the first boss. This does NOT mean that this game is for beginners, as the owner of the game is still playing on Human mode(Didi).

The action is freakin' awesome for the first hour and a half, but after that, you seem to feel some sense of receptivity going through room after room. Even when trying out different combos with everything I faced(unlike just mashing Y Y Y*cough*didi*cough*), I still felt like this is all you seem to be doing, but this doesn't mean that you want to drop the controller anytime soon.

The graphics seem to be amazing, not from a realistic standpoint, but more in an action standpoint. There seem to be no glitches in fighting, the attacks look awesome, and the characters are well detailed. Art style seems to be in good shape, with some cool environments, and I always wanted to just get out of the main road and try to jump into another place, but it doesn't allow that though. These environments are massive, as you will be able to see in the awesome camera angles. It's a shame that you could not reach them.

One comment I would like to say is that I don't find much usefulness to the revolver. I mean, I guess it would be better once you skill the revolver up, but just being able to fire it after a strong swing of your sword doesn't make up for it's lack of any meaningful power. The Devil Bringer, though, is a whole different story. You could do some awesome things with that other than just pulling off massive combos and doing some aerial stunts, but in the first boss battle, you get to use it for this awesome throw attack which does much damage and looks like much coolness. Even the basic swing with the arm is awesome. The Red Queen is cool to. Very useful, not much cons(if any). Just that one of the combos I got didn't prove of much help since it was quick tap Y twice, and then press Y, but none of the enemies lasted long enough for me to try it and do it successfully.

I don't know about you guys, but I think the music is frAKin' SWEET! Adds to much of the action.

And that's pretty much all I have to say about DMC4. If I could buy it, I might. But for now it seems like a rent.
