    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.

    I really liked the additional DLC. Much DLC feels like an expansion or annexe of the original game, however, this feels like a pseudo sequel which some will hate and some will like. I have no real idea what the obsession with the plot is in DMC. Some people think they are missing out on a stellar story line that continues from where DMC4 left off. Seriously, can anyone tell me what the hell this amazing story i am missing is? I have played all Devil May Crys and this is the first one ever to make sense. The others are so contrived and full of holes that you can't make head nor tail of them. Seriously WHY does Dante own a shop? WHO is Nero and why has he got Dantes powers? What the hell is the whole Trish/Gloria thing about... anyway on with the review... Hopefully people can stop worrying about the combat as it is quicker and more difficult; I would assume this is to please the 'die hard fans' but it is still accessible. The story is fine and the art work is as great as DMC... fully worth the price of admission. Collapse

    Great sequel-teasing final shot though. [June 2013, p.75]

    For 720 Microsoft points ($9), DmC: Devil May Cry - Vergil's Downfall is a short but fun experience that does a good job of extending the main game and serving as a bridge for a possible sequel. The gameplay is a little different, and the weapon selection isn't as varied, but the challenge is just right, especially with its plethora of difficulty levels. While it won't convert those who hated the game or felt lukewarm about it, it's a worthy piece of DLC for everyone else.

    Fresh combat and stylish visuals make Vergil's Downfall a fun addition to DmC: Devil May Cry, despite a less-than-stellar story.
