Fantastic action, brilliant demonic art design, very responsive controls and rewarding unlocks

Controlling Dante is super responsive and ultra fun to swing his Scythe around mashing into enemies with brutal aggression. It is not a button masher, there is a small amount of elegance to stringing combos together, not to the extent of say Bayonetta but it is definetly a very rewarding combat style that makes you want to hack and slash monsters for hours.
The scope and theme of the game is purely epic. Travelling through hell you come across all kinds of lost souls begging you for mercy and it is up to you whether to absolve or destory their souls. The cut scenes, the voice acting and menu screens are all absolutely spot on for setting the epic mood that runs through out this purely brilliant hack and slasher.
If you do not like games like this, theres probably not much here for you. But if you were a fan of ninja gaiden 2 and bayonetta - this is a MUST HAVE.
I was looking forward to this release so much but after reading the review on tihs site i was turned on. I recently saw it for cheap and picked up a copy - I wish I hadn't of waited so long !
This game is epic.
