    I'm not a DmC fan, I have never played the former games. But this got a decent review, so I wanted to check it out. I tend to like games like this. However, I tried, but I just don't like this game. It's so incredibly childish, it's as if Ninja Theory hired a bunch of socially inept 14 year olds to design a game.

    Look at it. The story is stupid (this guy owns the president and Fox News is shit! Look at how little of a fuck Dante gives! Fuck fuck fuck FUUUUCCKKKKK). The graphics are mostly skulls and blood, and wouldn't look out of place between the drawings of a goth-kid's notebook. The music, which is a part of the horrible genre of crap-metal. Everything about this game was made to appeal to idiotic teenage boys, and I'm glad I didn't spend money on this juvenile crap.

    Expecting a decent story from an action-based game is like expecting Arnold Swartzenegger's output to have the depth of Uylsses.

    If you had played any of the previous games, you'd realise they feature gothic-inspired architecture. It's about the son of a demon who is part-demon himself and a demon slayer; sunshine and lollipops wouldn't really fit the tone (well, maybe if it was a Suda51 game), so blood and skulls are par for the course. The older games' story and setting were used as a vehicle to frame the mechanics (which is why most people play these games).

    As for the soundtrack, it fits the tone of the game. Within the wider spectrum of metal, the band who did it aren't particularly interesting, but to call the entire genre 'crap' because you don't like it is disingenuous. I don't like hip-hop, but acknowledge there's still plenty of good within the genre. There's poor jazz, electronic, classical, pop, etc., but there's also great stuff. Metal is no different.

    But as with any choice in entertainment, each to their own.

    The Combichrist song ("No Surrender") that opens up the game when you get control of Dante is one of the best pieces of music I can remember in gaming in terms of setting out exactly what kind of atmosphere and attitude the game is going to give you, fucking phenomenal stuff.

    While I agree that the story is shit, the cut-scene direction is miles above par. So even though they're saying the same stupid things, it's infinitely more watchable than the old games.

    Classic DMC wasn't exactly high brow though, was it. I thought the was much better than the norm for this genre, with cutscenes I actually wanted to watch. It was a definite improvement over what came before.

    But I agree with the music. It's awful. There's not even any variety. No escape from the painful screaming metal or the godawful dubstep.

    No variety at all, as dubstep and painful screaming metal are the same!

    Nah I'm just bustin' your chops

    There are plenty of ways of setting the same kind of atmosphere and invoking energy than a childish headache-inducing mix of screams.

    They are different. I know that. But there is nothing else beyond that except that one nightclub.

    I hate sloppy music direction like that. "We need an energetic soundtrack. Let's just have metal and dubstep!"

    There are indeed plenty of ways, 'subtle as a brick' being one of them and the one chosen here.

    'Combichrist' lands itself in the pantheon of ever incresingly shit metal band names! :D

    I don't listen to metal, but appreciate the song within the game if that makes sense. Come on chaps! Chaps?

    It fits the tone of the game perfectly but as a metal 'song' it's pretty shit!

    Ah, I listen to a lot of metal and find it distinctly pedestrian!

    Edit - but yes, fits the tone and sets up what to expect perfectly! :D

    It's nothing on the Dragon's Dogma theme music, perfect fit to the game!

    All the eurogamers who actually play with each other on xbl rather than just post pseudointellectual pc handwringing bollocks on the forums, love the shit out of biggy.

    Or Blue Dragon's boss music. Perfect fit.

    Hahaha, funnily enough I have that exact song in my head whenever I try and recall the Dragon's Dogma theme from memory!

    I started on Nephilim and haven't had any problems really, and I'm shit at this type of game.

    Just completed it an hour ago on Nephilim. There are some tricky parts near the end that i died once or twice on, but i wouldnt say its hard.

    Its much easier then Bayonetta on normal.

    Son of Sparda difficulty is a big step up. The first level throws stuff at you that you get at the end of the game at you.

    Playing through on Nephelim feels like a training run for the 'proper' game on the unlocked difficulties.

    Currently playing through the original game (via the HD collection); took a while to resharpen my old school skills! At about mission 10 or so and have to say that the boss fights ain't as bad as i remember them...

    Yeah, some of the level design later in is great. It's all pretty much in limbo, but it shakes things up a bit.

    Griffin in the Coliseum is still awful. Phantom is one of my favourite bosses ever.

    @Deckard1 clicks eventually. Later on there are some ghastly fucks who can only be taken down by certain weapons but by that stage you'll be used to swapping about with them.
