That would have to be the only real fault of the game, in addition to sometime disorienting camera angles. All in all, though, Devil May Cry was a blast to play and the graphics alone make it worth playing.

The series then fell off the map with a couple of hastily produced sequels and now we're given the fourth installment. So, does Devil May Cry live up to its reputation? … more
