CraveOnline: "If you’re coming to Vergil’s Downfall for the story, you maybe want to pump the breaks. This DLC does not peel back all the complicated layers of Vergil’s psyche to a satisfactory level. There are still many questions to be answered, all of which will no doubt be picked up on in the eventual sequel. But if you really dug the gameplay of DmC, just as I did, then Vergil’s Downfall is worth checking out to play something that brings back that familiar rush while still being different enough to avoid feeling like déjà vu. Vergil’s Downfall might not be up to Undead Nightmare caliber, but it’s better than most story-driven, post-launch DLC we see released today."
