    This review contains spoilers, click full review link to view. This DLC feels like it could have been way better. It's not that it isn't enjoyable, it just feels like it was rushed out before they could iron out all the kinks. The storyline is decent, though not brilliantly explained. Basically Vergil is turning into a bit of a nutbar while developing a major inferiority complex. The gameplay doesn't quite flow as smoothly as it does when you play as Dante, which can make it frustrating but for the most part it is fun at least. My biggest gripe with it is that instead of having real cutscenes, we have these crappy comic strips. It's like the animators were all off sick while this was being made so they just stuck with the concept art and hoped for the best. There's a lot of big events that that seem like they could look impressive if it was done properly but, as it is, it all just looks cheap and half hearted. I just don't get the impression that the developers were as passionate about this as they were about the rest of the game. All things considered, the storyline is worth looking into but I wouldn't recommend spending money on this. It's a very story driven couple of hours and, although the storyline is solid, it takes away a lot of the impact when it's told through poorly animated comic strips. You won't enjoy playing as Vergil as much as Dante and the whole thing seems very forced and thrown together leaving you feeling kind of cheated. Full Review »

    This is an amazing expansion pack. First off, Vergil plays very differently than Dante. Whereas Dante is a furious button pressing frenzy, Vergil's strikes are more deliberate and you feel like your in a more zen-like state. All this is achieved while STILL bringing the awesome, over the top style. It's a good few hours of gameplay and well worth the cash. Full Review »

    What you need to know is this, DMC Vergils Downfall is not a bad game. It's one of those elegant masterpieces in which Dante is getting more kickass for the hungry fans out there that love him. Full Review »
