Devil May Cry 4 Guide
Capcom's highly regarded hack and slash series, Devil May Cry, originated on the PlayStation 2 console back in 2001. The first title follows a half-demon bounty hunter named Dante on his quest to slay the demon emperor Mundus. The second installment, Devil May Cry 2 (PS2, 2003), again features the devil hunter Dante as its main protagonist, this time joined by a female warrior named Lucia. DMC2 is generally regarded as a disappointment among fans of the series, the main reason being the noticeable decrease in difficulty from the original game. However Capcom rebounded with a prequel to the first game, Devil May Cry 3: Dante's Awakening (PS2, 2005). The unforgiving gameplay that the original Devil May Cry was known for returned with a number of enhancements to the combat system.
At long last, the highly anticipated fourth installment of the series has made its way to next-gen consoles, and the combat is as stylish as ever. Devil May Cry 4 introduces a new character by the name of Nero, a Holy Knight of the Order of the Sword. Don't fret Dante fans, for the legendary devil hunter is playable here too, though he's not the main protagonist in this one. Set in the castle town of Fortuna, the mysterious Order of the Sword group is in turmoil following the death of their leader at the hands of a mysterious assassin. As Nero, it's your job to hunt the man and confront him.
The land of Fortuna is a dangerous place, inhabited by a variety of malevolent demons. Don't worry though, as this guide is here to help you. Herein you'll find walkthroughs for each of the game's twenty missions, including strategies to aid you in defeating every boss creature, and tips to help you cut through the droves of demons encountered along the way. There are also strategies for all twelve of the secret missions, directions to each and every Blue Orb Fragment, and a complete listing of unlockable content.
