Some things get lost in translation. Like the Japanese word for ‘Hard,’ which apparently translates to ‘Normal’ in English. This style-over-substance actioner, arguably the best in the series, has no sympathy for the casual player. Even veterans will be forced to watch Dante be done in by demons and grim reapers fairly regularly. Which is actually fine by us—it’s kinda satisfying to see that pretty boy get knocked around every now and then. Or, given the game, every now and now and now.
