Devil May Cry 4
There's a great game in here, but it's buried underneath some of the worst level design choices seen ever. Essentially having to play the same game twice, and fight half of the bosses THREE TIMES, should never have been allowed. Ridiculous even by DMC standards.
For a game set in Hell, it feels more like Purgatory. There simply isn't enough variety between each Circle, or enough enemies, to make it feel like anything but a chore. The magic system, relic system and puzzles are all great, but the meat of the game falls victim to extreme repetition. And your Nick Chester apparently really liked it.
WOOOOOOOOW. It took a little while for it to find its groove, but when it did, oh man. Definitely replaying this after Revengeance, and you can bet I'll be there for the sequel.
