Awesome game with great sound, graphics, and art direction. One of the most creative and cool looking games ever. Great story and script and great voice acting. The soundtrack is absolutely slamming heavy metal that fits right in when you are going bananas and wiping the floor with enemies left and right, but it is the type of music that is purely best heard while playing the game. I have tried listening to the soundtrack outside of the game and it oddly enough sounds like crap without the game to go with it. The controls are tight and very responsive with zero delay and quick, brutal gameplay. The only complaint I have is that like all other DMC games, this has a ♥♥♥♥ load of different moves. Like 5 or 6 different weapons and each has its own moveset, but in fairness the moves are almost the same button combinations for each weapon, so switching to weapons and doing moves can be done with lightning speed with practice. Even so though, it is still easy to get a little confused during combat and forget exactly what you need to do to avoid dmg and also kick heads in properly, but overall the game is very manageable with practice and fun. Basically it is a healthy combination of jumping and dodge rolling to avoid attacks, and power moves and grappling and aerial moves. Not all of the moves are needed either unless you are someone who wants to mix things up wildly and get a perfect score of SS on each level. I can usually get an A on every level, and often a S and sometimes a SS. The only downsides I found with the game are the last two boss fights being huge letdowns. Mundis is extremely easy then when I fought the real last boss on mission 20 (I won't spoil who it is) I could not figure out exactly how to finish him off. I had to google how to do it. The game is also short, under ten hours. I got the Virgil dlc so hopefully it has a bit more gameplay.
One of the few games I have ever played where I do not have any real complaints because it does not have any serious flaws. A lot of time and care went into this game and it shows. It is bad to the bone and you get to be a complete badass and go ape ♥♥♥♥ and mow down demons mercilessly. Brutal, hard-core fighting at its best, 8/10
