Product Description

Platform: PlayStation 3 | Edition: Collector's

Fans of the ‘Hack and Slash’ wing of the Action genre are more than likely familiar with the single player, gothic-flavored action of Capcom’s Devil May Cry franchise. The first three games in the series are centered on the sword play and gun slinging of demon hunter and long-time hero, Dante, but in the most recent release, Devil May Cry 4, players are thrown a changeup, as doubt is cast on the once unquestionable motives and actions of Dante by a new, yet somehow familiar hero, Nero.

Meet the New Kid in Town - Nero
Nero resembles Dante and Dante’s estranged twin brother Virgil, familiar to players from earlier games in the series. This might be more than a just a coincidence--you’ll have to play through the game to find out for sure--but what is certain is that like Virgil, Nero has a serious problem with Dante; one that can only end badly for one of them.

As DMC4 opens players not only witness, but participate in Nero’s trial by fire as he is unexpectedly forced to go head-to-head with Dante. The youngest, but most promising new member of the land of Fortuna’s "Holy Knights," the military arm of the "Order of Maken," an organization pledged to destroy all demons as well as defend the memory and worship of Sparda, the historical Dark Knight who rebelled against the Dark Emperor to champion the fate of humanity, the Holy Knights highly respect Dante, who is a direct descendent of Sparda. This makes what Nero and players of the game must do all the more difficult, but no less necessary. A tutorial for learning and developing Nero’s skills as well as serving as the game’s first boss battle, playing as Nero, players must hold their own against the legendary demon hunter before they can proceed further into the game. But be prepared for Dante to return later in the game.

The World of Devil May Cry 4
Just as in previous installments in the DMC series, the world players explore in Devil May Cry 4 is lavishly gothic, feeling both ancient and modern simultaneously and is peopled by demons and demon hunters. In this dangerous world player’s weapons are sometimes all they can count on. Although you begin your journey playing in the role of newcomer Nero, players will also have the opportunity to play as Dante, Both character’s arsenals of weapons and abilities are impressive, but not too difficult to master. See the partial list of both character’s weapons and abilities below:

Nero

  • "Devil Bringer" Arm: Integrated into Nero’s right arm, it is a mystery even to Nero, but quickly reveals itself as a very effective weapon against demons, especially the largest among them.
  • Red Queen: Effective at when swung at high speeds, this sword has a motorcycle handle base that sprays flammable liquid on enemies when squeezed.
  • Blue Rose: Used for long range attacks, this pistol has two barrels which can be fired at once with armor piercing force.
  • The Exceed System: Allows Nero to charge up his sword with a throttle effect, revving up to three levels with powerful attack options.
Dante
  • Force Edge: Sharp and indestructible, this sword is a memento from his father Sparda, and was used to defeat the ancient enemy Mundus and seal the gateway to the underworld.
  • Ebony & Ivory: Dante’s twin .45 caliber companion pistols. They are Dante’s trusty companions as he battles supernatural evils.
  • Beowulf: Double gauntlets and greaves hold a flashing power to strike down enemies at close distances.
  • Active Style Change System: These allow Dante to switch between fighting styles and weapons on the fly, producing crazy combo possibilities that players will need to master.
Leveling up of both characters is done through DMC’s traditional orb collection system which can happen at any point in the game, while weapons and abilities are upgradable at the completion of levels through the new "Proud Souls" system. In addition the game’s deep combo system rewards players for ‘stylishly’ dispatching enemies by mixing and matching the weapons that they use in attacks, so it pays for players to get to know the arsenals.

New Characters and Environments
Joining Nero and Dante as they battle demons and each other throughout the game’s next-generation enhanced environments are a wide array of non-player characters both old and new to the Devil May Cry series. Familiar faces from the past like Trish and Lady will be there as well as new characters like Kyrie to illustrate Nero’s side of the story in the demon-filled landscapes of Fortuna and continue the legacy of fast paced, rich action players have come to expect from the Devil May Cry universe.

5.0 out of 5 stars This is the version to get February 7, 2008
Platform for Display:PlayStation 3|Edition:Collector's
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
In the interest of time and space this review will be about this specific version and not the game itself, as there are already reviews for that. Really, the only question here is: are the $20 extra worth it? Cosmetics aside (which alone are worth it for the collector), you're getting 2 extra discs, one with 4 episodes of the animated series -- which are mandatory by the way, but mileage varies greatly apparently -- along with some extras, and a second disc with an art gallery, soundtrack, making of DMC, etc.

So my reasoning goes like this: The anime can be purchased separately for 30 dollars, or you can get it here for 20 dollars along with a bunch of bonus content. This is a game that you'll revisit down the line, and you'll be glad you bought the limited edition in time. And even if you do plan to sell it someday, it will be worth more than the regular version and you'll still have gotten a deal on all the extras, especially the anime.

5.0 out of 5 stars collecters edition March 12, 2008
Platform for Display:PlayStation 3|Edition:Collector's
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
well you can see reviews for this game on this site so ill just talk about the special features. first of all the game case is in a plastic sleeve which stops the metal case from being scratched and it holds the anime disk. when i removed the case from the sleeve i was expecting some artwork but nothing like this. its a beautiful holographic case showing nero holding up his "devil bringer" and on the back is dante holding his pistol "ebony". aside from the very attractive case, the two bonus disks are fantastic. the anime dvd is very action oriented and can be viewed in japanese with subtitals or in english. also the dvd has an interview with the voice acter for dante and some game promos. the "bonus" dvd is meant for the computer and is a very nice treat for any dmc fan. it has an art gallery showing some origional artist scetches of the dmc 4 charecters, the game soundtrack ( very good quality( i put them on my ipod)), and lots of desktop backgrounds and screen savers. overall i would say that the extra 30 bucks is sooooooooooo worth it for this masterpiece.

5.0 out of 5 stars definately worth the money if you're a fan! February 24, 2008
Platform for Display:PlayStation 3|Edition:Collector's
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Like the previous post, i won't focus much on the game itself in my review other to say that i disagree with some publications writing this game off as a "last-gen gameplay experience with pretty graphics". I disagree in that i think that they perfected the gameplay, made great improvements overall and gave us a very interesting story. Also this game has a 4 at the end for a reason. Games are more comparable to movies nowadays and it would be a great idea to play the first 3 before jumping into this.

Now for the meat and potatoes; This collectors edition is a must buy for DMC fans. The packaging is visually appealing with some neat artistic effects. The slip sleeve is transparent has the text for devil may cry 4 and the blue light behind it as its front image, and as you slide it off to reveal the metal case you'll find that the image of nero is part of a larger picture embedded into the metal case that is obscured by the transparent sleeve. Even better is that the reverse side of the metal case has a similarly positioned Dante so that you can essentially give the game the cover of your preference when its slip-sleeve is on. :-D There is a seperate gatefold DvD case for the DMC anime series inside the slip-sleeve and although i found that it was a bit of a tight fit, i didn't feel cheapened by its position in the packaging.
The Metal Case is definately tough, and stays shut very securely, but worry not, it is easy to open. Inside you have an art booklet/instruction manual and the bonus dvd that you can watch on your dvd player or computer. The enhanced PC features include the soundtrack and screensavers. The soundtrack only includes 5 songs, but they are very high quality mp3s, it even has its own application that you can fire up and listen to the tracks with.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Best Devil May Cry Yet! December 28, 2008
Platform for Display:PlayStation 3|Edition:Collector's
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
In my opinion, this is the best Devil May Cry since the 1st one. The collectors edition is a really nice deal. It comes with the game (:0) The first 5 episodes of the animated series, an offer for the 1st series DVD case FOR FREE(you pay $4 S&H) A Bonus Disc with 5 songs, backgrounds, and misc. pictures (you have to put the disc in your comp.) Oh yea and a nice metal case for it.

Now down to game play, as you all know a new character is introduced here, Nero, he plays similar, but not so similar to Dante. It is a very fun game, you do also get to play as Dante, he is a lot older and more comical than before. A definite game to pick up. It also has a very nice story, and a gripping intro (I was like 0_0 when i first seen it!)

Now with all this praise come some criticism, It is astronomically short. 1st time was 10.5 hours to beat, but every other play through was much longer (Different modes) But there is about 2 hours (give or take) Of cut-scenes.

And also, Dante was more of an after thought here (playability wise) As with him there is alot of back-tracking. Lady and Trish literally make a brief intro. Lady gets the short end of the stick here, you only see her for 20sec. and thats at the bonus ending only!! And there not playable! Oh well maybe in DMC 5 (wonder when that will hit shelves o_o )

Overall these few things should not scare you away from this amazing title!
