If you’re a Soul Calibur fan, you’ll certainly know that like any other Soul Calibur game you’ve played in the past, the story mode is short and pretty uninteresting. Depending on the character you choose to play as, the story will slightly change; you may fight different bosses or perhaps play in a different arena – that’s all, lets move on.

Devil May Cry 4 Review/Summary

18 04 2008

Devil May Cry 4 Title
From the developers of Resident Evil 4, Capcom bring to you, - the 4th in its series - Devil May Cry 4. If you’ve played any of the previous Devil May Cry games before, you’ll certainly know that each game is packed full with non-stop action giving you an exhilarating feel towards the gameplay. This factor has not changed in Devil May Cry 4.
Devil May Cry 4 Action
Devil May Cry 4 is brought to you in HD 720P at 60 frames per second. 60 frames per second will surely guarantee you a smooth, enjoyable gaming experience (So you don’t need to worry about the frame rate jumping and causing you to miss-time that sick combo when battling one of several bosses throughout the game!).Nero, is the main playable character who you will play as throughout the majority of the entire game. At the beginning of the game, Nero is equipped with 3 weapons; his Red Queen sword, Blue Rose revolver and the Devil Bringer (his demonic right arm). The Devil Bringer is used by Nero to pull himself towards enemies, pull enemies towards him, pack powerful punches etc, etc. Nero will keep all of these 3 weapons throughout the game - no upgrades or new weapons. Only using 3 weapons throughout an entire game may seem boring for some, but I can assure you it’s not. The amount of different combos and stylish enemy finishers that you can accomplish are outstanding.

As the game progresses you’ll definitely notice yourself almost addicted to the game’s gripping storyline. The bosses you battle throughout the story are quite a challenge and you’re going to have to pull off some some super cool combos to become victorious and beat each boss. If you aren’t able to kill the boss the first time round, who cares? Repeat the battle and you’ll get the chance to pull off some epic combos which are totally worth dying and repeating the boss battle for.

There is no multiplayer/online capabilities in Devil May Cry 4, but to be honest - the single player story is good enough. Once you’ve completed the game, you’ll most likely find yourself repeating missions and boss battles for the ultimate Devil May Cry experience which you’ve been longing to play for since Devil May Cry 3.If you’re interested in buying Devil May Cry 4, for the PS3 or Xbox 360, check out the links below:
