A definite purchase for me, despite it’s many short comings. It’s due out March 7th for Europe…
German magazine GamePro has the first review of possible Game of the Year 2008 contender (in my eyes ) Devil May Cry 4. Here is a rundown of the plus and minuses taken from NeoGAF:
+Beautiful animations and effects
- flickering shadows and edges
- sometimes too bright
+ A good mixture of Rock and Classical music
+ directional/ambient effect
+ Good (English) synchro
- often repeating tracks
+ Good controls
+ Lock On system
- A bit chaotic
+ Non-stop action
+ Upgrade system
- No innovation
- Can become tedious
Story/ Game world:
+ Beautiful Setting
+ Cool cutscenes
- Story somewhat chaotic
- Bland main villain
+ Main Game
+ Two Characters
+ Many side missions
+ Additional Goodies
According to the game manual, the PS3 version also uses the motion controls, allows you to check out the worldwide rankings and see how your friends are doing in DMC4. You’ll also be able to view your own stats via the PSN:
When the game starts for the first time, Devil May Cry 4 game data will be installed on the PLAYSTATION®3 Hard Disk Drive (HDD). You must install the Devil May Cry 4 game data to play the game. Only one copy of the Devil May Cry 4 game data can be installed to the Hard Disk Drive (HDD). 4.8GB of free space is required to install the game data.
With the Motion Sensor ON, turn the controller left and right to move the camera.
To quickly set the camera behind your character, shake the controller vigorously.
I’ll be turning off the motion controls straight away. I’m not bothered about having to install 4.8GB onto the HDD though as it eliminates loading times.
I can not wait!
There’s a video of Devil May Cry 4 in action on the PS3 here. I hope we get this on the PSN at some point.
There’s also a load of images from the demo over at ruliweb.com
I hope they release a playable demo on PSN. It’s strongly rumoured but I’m not going to get my hopes up.
Why do you torture me so, Capcom?
I’m a big fan of the Dynasty Warriors games, which is probably a bit stupid as it’s barely evolved since Dynasty Warriors 3, which was the best game in the series for me combined with DW3 Extreme Legends.
Despite how stale the series has became, I can’t help but get excited when I think about Dynasty Warriors 6 on PS3 (also out on 360), with (hopefully) massively improved visuals and a better combat system. Erm, maybe I should scratch that last one.
It’s out in Japan this November 22, while North America and Europe will probably get it sometime during Q2/Q3 2008, going off previous releases in the series.
This is up there with PES 2008, DMC4 and GTA IV for my most anticipated games for the PS3. Shu FTW!!! Lu Bu is going to get his arse kicked once again.
