From the review: "It's a crying shame, because with a little more effort, DMC4 could have been truly excellent. As it is it's a brilliant, addictive, just plain cool hack and slash action game which goes some way to bringing the series back to its initial lustre. It also stands alone on the PC. Whereas console gamers have the likes of Ninja Gaiden and God of War to fight for their attention, on PC Capcom is the only developer to have seen value in bringing its hack and slash over from consoles.
Capcom has done nothing to make it more appealing for those who have passed on the series in the past, has been very brave with its decision to replace Dante with Nero, and, in many areas, been extremely slack in terms of game design, but, on the whole, DMC4 will leave fans with a smirk the great demon hunter himself would be proud of."
