    In the end, it’s worth playing through if you got it free from a pre-order deal when DmC was purchased. But I honestly don’t think it’s worth the $10 asking price.

    This is a fantastic piece of DLC. Packed full of upgrades, trophies, new levels and a few new demons. Vergil controls somewhat differently to Dante, but once you wrap your head around the differences he can be a lot of fun to play as. The way Vergil slips deeper and deeper into a more twisted and evil version of himself (bringing him closer to what we saw in DMC3) is handled with such aplomb by Ninja Theory, they should be highly commended for what they have managed to do not just here, but with the full game as well. The scene is well set up for (hopefully) a sequel on the next gen. Full Review »

    It's hard to believe someone comes up with these kind of "plots" and people in charge approve... The main game itself failed miserably, but the DLC took it to another level. I almost feel bad for the effort that's been put into the game, and the DLC... Even the combat system felt clumsy and dull compared to Dante's... Full Review »

    A very nice in-depth look into one of the leading characters of DmC. This DLC pack was full of excellent story-telling and gameplay, while giving a deeper look into Vergil's descent into insanity. This DLC pack even further leaves DmC wide open for a riveting sequel. Full Review »
