Palgn writes: Abandoning past exclusivity, Devil May Cry 4 appears on both the Xbox 360 and Playstation 3. The game is somewhat akin to Onimusha: Dawn of Dreams, in the way that it looks to change the series. The main character is now a young man named Nero, who looks strikingly similar to Dante. While attending a cult religion mass, the devil hunter Dante crashes the party by assassinating the congregation's leader, know as his Holiness. Being a member of the Order of Knights meant to protect the cult, Nero sets out to hunt down Dante. However, things aren't all as they seem.
As far as action games go, Devil May Cry has been a frontrunner of the last generation. While not a lot has been drastically changed, Devil May Cry 4 is easily among the best action games available. The combat system for both characters is deep and the stylish rating and meter encourages you to continue your combos, while rewarding you appropriately for good moves. Nero has some sweet attacks and the Buster allows for some crazy stylish moves, especially in boss battles. There is a rare satisfaction attached to pulling off these moves. The boss battles themselves are numerous and epic, while the game's puzzles aren't too obtrusive and provide a suitable change of pace.
