Rather dull

After playing the rest of the series on the PS2 I was kind of curious to see how this game was on the next gen systems. Since other reviews have put a great lengths their views summarizing the gameplay I'll not go into great detail.

It seems like for me that for #4 the people at capcom, got the artists from the previous DMC & maybe Resident Evil4, brought back the designers from the first one with maybe one writer from somewhere else & got really drunk for making this. Gameplay is repetitive as the first one but instead of giving you different weapons or at least a unique character to match Dante you get Dante-clone Nero with 2 of 3 weapons that are useful (guns are useless compared to the other 2 weapons). Instead of new weapons you get a giant metal top to knock around to open passageways but this gets dull hitting two down a hallway to open a door. Without the assortment of weapons Dante had you end up doing a small number of combos against the same assortment of enemies, taking on lots of easy bosses & many fights against Dante which are quite hard later on. I kept playing to see if it would get better & it never really did which is a shame because the game looks great but the gameplay is quite lacking (when there wasn't ton of cutscenes keeping you from playing) and the writing was just plain boring.

The excellence on ...
