I played all the Devil May Cry games in order because I had nothing better to do one month. I am not usually one for games like this, I don't have the muscles for twitch movements and the like. This was a very difficult series for me to get into but I made it through this game.
Devil May Cry is a series of games about a half-human/half-demon character by the name of Dante. The story is honestly well written in all the other games but in this one, it is easily forgotten. In fact, I don't remember much about this game at all. I know it has all the over-the-top action that the series is known for and Dante is supposed to be a badass above all other badasses.
The gameplay of this was less than stellar, namely the difficulty. I'm not huge on difficult games but this one compared to 1 and 3 is just a huge step backwards. The game is really easy no matter what you do. Now I don't see that as a terribly bad thing but many people will. The combat works and the platforming and puzzles are bland, again this game was so forgettable I don't even remember anything about it at all.
I think to sum things up, if I can't remember much about this game. It must not be a very good game in the first place. My friends told me not to play this game because it tarnishes the series as a whole and I really feel it does. I have only completed the first three games and did not want to move on in the series. I'm sure there will be somebody that sticks up for this game but I honestly can't think of anything that redeems this game.
