Vergil's Downfall is the story DLC for DmC Devil May Cry, and it takes place immediately following the events of the main game. I'm reviewing it separately from the main game because it's set up as a completely separate experience accessible from the main menu rather than in-game. It's standalone in all except actually being able to run independent of having the base game installed. Anyway, this will be brief to avoid spoiling the base game, but you play as Vergil as he comes to grips with the way events unfolded at the end of DmC as well as getting a bit of a peek into his thought process.
Unfortunately given that this is a wholly story driven DLC, the story is...kind of crap. It feels hastily thrown together and is told largely through comic-style frames between levels, a format completely different from the base game. The story is also just kind of hard to follow. It makes sense if you pay attention to the very beginning and the very end, but it feels really separated and haphazard during. Fortunately it's not very long - only a few hours - but you're really not missing anything here. Even if you have the definitive edition that includes this DLC, I'd suggest just skipping it unless you're going for full achievements.

I'm a teacher.
And I like to play video games. I like to collect video games. I like to talk about video games, and I like to write about video games. During the day, I teach high school history; during the night, I spend my spare time gaming. Then I write about it.
