    If you have any love for the original title, there’s enough new content here with the three additional characters that playing through it again will feel like a fresh experience.

    A good game wrapped in a great remastered package. Capcom could have just slapped together something with a higher resolution and called it an HD remaster like many are doing, but they elected to actually build upon their seven year old game by adding meaningful content. Granted, they didn’t reinvent the wheel with these extras, but playing as Trish, Lady and especially Vergil are more than welcome additions.

    A good game that has stood the test of time in an exemplary manner, but that conforms to repeat the same mistakes of the original, although extends the experience with new content.

    Fans of the series will have the most fun with this, but for others who haven't played any of these games, will most likely have serious problems with the fixed camera and backtracking. The combat is very good but for me, everything else is nothing but frustration.

    Little more than a time capsule giving players a glimpse into a series that stubbornly refused to improve along with its competition.

Of course, thisThis remastered special edition of DMC 4 includes three new playable characters, an extra difficulty level and a turbo mode. Of course, this isn't remake, so it still features the recycled environments from the original. But the game still holds up well and it looks terrific. Virgil, Trish and Lady are all welcome additions with their unique combat styles. I would rate this with an 8 out of 10. Expand
