Gamer writes: "If you're willing to put in the time and effort to master both characters and attempt to make it through the insane difficulty of the highest settings, Devil May Cry 4 is more or less unparalleled in its field. And for the more casual player, going through on the easier settings will still be entertaining but don't expect to be pushed too hard – in fact, we'd recommend most adopters who have ever played anything similar jump straight in on the Devil Hunter setting as Human mode may as well play itself for the most part.
Still, this does mean that Devil May Cry is no longer the domain of the hardcore alone, for which we can only be thankful. Admittedly, that's where the most entertainment and the biggest challenge lies and therefore when it is no doubt at its best. But by cleverly easing in those less sure in their ability to take down the forces of evil through finger gymnastics, Capcom has made something pretty damn special."
