DarkStation: "Vergil’s Downfall is not fundamentally broken, but it’s over quickly and falls far short of the quality of the main game. It’s super disappointing. I really liked Vergil’s new characterization, and I was excited to play as him. Unfortunately he’s just not that fun. Ultimately you’re probably better off playing through DmC on a new difficulty or playing through the Blood Palace DLC, which was recently released for free. The only people I can really recommend this game to are those who absolutely need to play as Vergil, and even then you’re better off playing Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3."
