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.
