Devil May Cry 4

Version released on Steam.

From the producer of the original Devil May Cry and Resident Evil 4 comes the next installment in the hugely successful stylized action series that has so far achieved global sales of nearly seven million units.

With the advanced graphical capabilities of the PC, high definition visuals and intricate detail come to life as players explore new and exotic locales. Dynamic action and undeniable style combine with explosive fighting options and a gripping story to produce the incomparable experience that only a Devil May Cry game can deliver.

HowTo / Notes

Test Results Guidelines and Ranking Standards

Specify DX9 and DX10 executables.

Make a mention of your hardware specs.

If you are discussing performance, keep in mind Devil May Cry 4 supports 120 fps and has a benchmarking tool.
Consider two milestones, 120 fps and 60 fps. Given the same hardware, do not rate Platinum or Gold if the game runs above >= 120 fps natively, but is limited to >= 60 and < 120 fps on Wine.

Please disclose any deviations from a default wine configuration.
