In the past year, GameSpot have had plenty of hands-on time with Capcom's Devil May Cry 4, but most of that has been in non-linear chunks that haven't really allowed them to get to grips with the storyline and how newbie Nero gets to replace veteran Dante as the series hero. But GameSpot recently got an early Christmas present in the form of full review code for the PlayStation 3 version of Devil May Cry 4, and they can now report just exactly what goes down in first five levels of the game.
Devil May Cry looks set to deliver more of the same over-the-top action fans of the series expect. GameSpot's early play throughs have all been fairly positive, although they did find one annoying feature with the PS3 version. The game needs to install a large chunk of files on the PS3's drive, and it takes quite a lot of time (roughly 20-30 minutes). This obviously only happens the first time you play the game, but it's still quite a jarring experience to be faced with a PC-like install process on a console game.
