I completed Devil May Cry 4 in Human mode earlier on (easy setting for those unfamiliar with the DMC universe) and yesterday i completed it on Devil Hunter mode (the mode available if you are familiar with the DMC games). This has unlocked the bloody palace which allows you to progress different enclosed arena like levels beating se7en colours of blood out of hellspawn to a time limit. It you win, you progress to the next. Also the Son of Sparda difficulty mode is unlocked and i am currently on mission 5. As usual there are major differences such as getting the more feircer foes earlier (and sometimes frustrating) but the good thing is all the abilities i had acquired in the earlier difficulty settings have carried over, thus i'm stronger with a host of moves to dispence with the minions of the boss man. Awesome game. To think when i first played the demo i dismissed it and deleted it straight away. Never judge a book by its cover me.
You know what, to complete the game in Devil Hunter mode, i spent 7 hours from mission 12 to complete it. Some of the later levels was a nightmare, especially mission 19 with the freaking arbitrary dice of annoyance (kept on landing on red
). Anyway, i have never spent 7 hours in my life playing a game. Most was 2 hours (and i had a break). Just goes to show how awesome this game is.
I can't wait for Devil May Cry 5
