|The fourth installment of Capcom's gothic action series is the first to feature a new protagonist: Nero, who enters battle with a double-barreled revolver called the "Blue Rose" and an ornate sword known as the "Red Queen." He is also a card-carrying member of the Order of the Sword, an organization systematically dismantled by former series protagonist, Dante. Nero's power is not limited to his distinctive weapons, however. Nero's right arm, a.k.a. "the devil bringer," is imbued with an ethereal glow and is a source of supernatural strength. The demonic appendage lets him perform feats of agility not possible by mere mortals, such as grabbing enemies from afar, slamming them into the ground, spinning them overhead, or initiating various other context-sensitive moves.|
Players can once again freely switch between melee and projectile attacks to string together elaborate combos, with bonus points awarded for style. By varying his attacks and minimizing the damage received in each level, Nero will earn "Proud Souls" to spend on sword combos, bullets, and improved attributes. Fans of earlier versions can still collect health-enhancing orbs from defeated enemies and initiate "devil trigger" transformations for temporary boosts in speed and power. Throughout his demon-slaying journey, Nero must solve environment-based puzzles and confront towering boss creatures, with each conquest allowing him the opportunity to upgrade his powerful arm. Dante is also playable at certain points in Devil May Cry 4, which according to producer Hiroyuki Kobayashi, features more content than the first three titles combined.

The game is positively AMAZING! The refined graphics and gameplay blew me away, however, I did have to tone down my graphic settings to prevent slowdown and crashing, which, considering how high-end my PC is, was a disappointment. The controls are nearly identical to the Xbox 360 version, save for a key or two.
As far as in-game details go, I quite enjoy the variety that Nero's abilities bring to the table. The Devil Bringer, as well as the Red Queen's ignition system are just some of the wonderful new elements that DMC 4 brings to the series. All in all, I would say that the game is a 5, but the performance issues do get aggravating at times, so I feel that detracts a point from the score. Even so, I would certainly buy this game for any system.
Extraordinary action sequences, Nero is a great new character with some terrific new moves, Beautiful visuals and incredible cutscenes will constantly amaze you. It's hard to focus on the action when the scenery looks so beautiful.
Boss characters are designed well and fun to fight A couple of fun modes
that are exclusive to the PC version .
You need a gamepad if you want the proper experience. Environments and boss fights are repeated far too often. Puzzles and platforming aren't much fun and chop up the pace too much.
Devil May Cry 4 (DMC4) is a very good game; Sharp graphics (played on Vista) good game story, enjoyable videos helps you understand the story line.
The actions are addictive and playing cause you to become the hero by yourself.
I and my son are playing it for long time and enjoying every minut.
This game has got the great hack and slash feel of a DMC game with 10 times better graphics! It's got amazing maps and lovely lighting, new characters, more storyline (but still as awesome and crazy).
Works great with the Logitech rumble pad. Only bad thing I've run into is that after I close out of the game, my Media Center on my PC runs. It has something to do with Vista's interaction with xBox games. Nevertheless, this does not detract from the game.
I'd definately recommend this game for DMC fans and PC game players who want to try a gamepad game on their PC that is "pretty" for lack of better words.
