"We'll be honest with you. Devil May Cry 4 (DMC4) is not the bastion of progressive game design. It's not trying to reinvent the wheel, nor is it trying to compete with the likes of God of War. Nope, with the fourth instalment the series is going along its merry - and very Japanese - way, and honestly, that's okay with us. The series just has an infectious vitality that we find hard to resist, and DMC4 continues that tradition, with tight, juggle-intensive combat mechanics, gorgeous environments and a lead character with a sword that's bigger than he is."
