First Devil May Cry 4 Review

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
+ Camera
+ Lock On system
– A bit chaotic

Game design:
+ Non-stop action
+ Upgrade system
– Backtracking!
– 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! 😈
