THE GOOD: Slick visuals Flexible combat Good number of weapons Style system Hard as hell
THE BAD: The soundtrack sucks balls Hard as hell No true multiplayer
SUMMARY: Devil May Cry, what an interesting history you have. the first installment grabbed players with visceral combat which was previously unreached. Your second installment, however bored players from the sheer easiness. Good news gamers, not only does Devil May Cry return Devil may Cry back to its roots, it also gives you the most exhilarating, fun action experience this generation.
First stepping into Devil May Cry 3, you are introduced via a very well done, action packed cutscene, which basically shows Dante's personality. He's younger, cockier. He's badass and he knows it. Cutscenes in this game are fast-paced and fun. They put action movies to shame.
Graphically, this game is very impressive, showing off what the PS2 can do. A plethora of snazzy effects fill the screen from motion lines to laser effects and the framerate st...
THE GOOD: Numb-Chucks! Heavy Metal (sometimes) Style System Swearing Blood All-round better than DMC 1 and 2
THE BAD: Too challenging, and hard! And frustrating! And I needed help from a friend!
SUMMARY: Let's just say that if there's any game harder than DMC3, let me know not to play it at all, ever, unless you also give me some anger management pills (oh, and try a shitload of them, too, I had to take 5 loads of capsules to shut up). This game, unless you're mister calm or have an incredible sense of direction or have a walkthrough and mastered the otherwise hard-to-master system of this game, will piss you off more than you have been pissed before.
First up, Devil May Cry 3 is good but incredibally hard, no, wait, impossible. Next up, this opens up a pretty good storyline that will get you started up for the Original as long as you can beat this game on Easy (and if you can't, try Devil May Cry 1 and it'll probably not entertain you as much, but won't require half as many pills as Devil May...
THE GOOD: Take everything good from the previous two Devil May Cry's and multiply that by ten. Or a thousand. Howerver much is needed to convey to you that this game is not the flashy-on-the-outside-lackluster-on-the-inside game whos image has come to embarrassingly reflect that. This game is great. From the graphics to the graciously intuitive controls that have blessed this series to the finely tuned gameplay and even a storyline that won't put you to sleep.
THE BAD: Now the storyline, I think at best, should be considered decent. It isn't bad by any means but honestly it isn't anything you haven't seen in one manifestation or another of the "opening the portal to hell" scenarios. But none the less the numerous cutscenes provide, besides a breather, cohesion and transition for the storyline, two important things that have lacked severely in installments past. And I'm undecided as to whether or not the difficulty level should be considered a negative but, the learning curve of this ga...
THE GOOD: The new style system Return of decent weaponry Charismatic enemies Finer touches All round much better than the second game
THE BAD: Dante Must Die mode is ridiculously, unbelievably hard
SUMMARY: First, if you heard that this game was difficult, then you're correct. Possibly because of the widespread feeling that the second game was far too easy, Capcom seem to have over-corrected on the difficulty scale and made a game which is sure to frustrate 99% of the gaming population. The two frustrating parts are either the beginning if you're not too good at the game or Dante Must Die mode if you ever get that far. So if you don't intend to play DMD mode, ignore the last part of my review.
Devil May Cry games have never been known for riveting storylines, but this game provides a good one by the previous games' standards. You play as Dante once again, a half demon and half human devil hunter, but a cockier Dante because this is 20 years before the original game so he has the arrogance of ...
THE GOOD: Graphics Storyline Characters Music/Sound Gameplay Secrets
THE BAD: Not much replay value but not many games have them.
SUMMARY: Alright where to start. I started out with the first DMC game and I loved it. This is odd, because I'm more of an RPG kind of guy, and this game just drew me in. I mean the storyline, the combat system and Dante is just plain bad ass. Even after finishing it, there were many gaps left in throughout the story. DMC2 didn't reveal that many plots, infact it just added on more questions since it was a sequel, and unfortunately not that great. DMC3 however, which is a prequel to DMC1 and also the best of the 3 in my opinion, blows action adventure games out of the water.
You start out with Dante getting an invitational from his brother, Vergil. The game revolves around Vergil trying to open the gate to the Underworld, and Dante of course opposes him. Dante has a large arsenal of weaponry at his dissposal this time around and a lot of fighting styles. You can ch...
THE GOOD: The music absolutely rocks.
The graphics are lickable.
The styles system was a great idea and is very balanced.
Lots of great, different weapons.
The bosses have personalities.
The characters have lots of charisma.
THE BAD: The difficulty level is a bit too high.
No Vergil as a hidden playable character?
Lady's personality makes no sense.
SUMMARY: This is the game the DMC fans have been waiting for, regardless of if they had been disappointed by the second game or not.
Capcom went all out for this game, giving us a pumped up game with a brasher, louder, wilder Dante in a rich world with tons of enemies to beat, great bosses with idividual personalities, and lots of different styles and weapons to encourage us to play it again and again to max everything out.
They even put a story in the game this time around! Well, more so than in DMC1 and 2 combined. Sure, it's no classic of literature, but when you reach the ending, you'll see that while Capcom is not known for i...
THE GOOD: I have no clue where to start here,the huge variety of new weapons turned me on(Also,he kept the Ebony and Ivories) and also the new styles were awesome;It's all a matter of preferance but if guns are your thing,pick Gunslinger,if you like tricks you can pick Trickster.Theres a style for everyone.
THE BAD: I can't think of one bad thing about this game,the graphics are amazing,the voice acting is actually convincing,unlike the previous DMC titles.
SUMMARY: This Game is perfection in every way,you can play this game even if you havent played either of the other DMC games;in fact,because this is a prequel,it would be a good idea to play this one first.Anyone can play this game and love it,even someone who hasn't played any other Action,Capcom,or Adventure game.
Go buy this game if you haven't already,it's perfect!
THE GOOD: Absolutely amazing combo system. Gameplay is VERy addicting and fun. Awesome weapons along with awesome Upgrades and modes. The weapons, leels and everything else are cool as hell. The cut scenes are thrilling and cool.
THE BAD: Although...the game is too damn hard! There are other problems. but they are so small I would have to be the pickiest dude on the earth to be mad at but the way if you die and get sent back to the beginning of the level gets old fast. When buying items theprices increase which can get very annoying.
SUMMARY: Devil may cry 3 is one of the best action games to grace the PS2. When you think of action games. you think of this. The combat system, the moves. the style. Everything is as cool as hell. And will remain that way I'm sure. DMC3 is definietly a amazing game that you should go to the store and pick up now. That way. You can truely make the devil cry...
THE GOOD: There are added features like new Devil Arms and the different Styles... Plus, it reveals earlier things in Dante's Life... It still has the old DMC magic...
THE BAD: Again, the lifespan is a bit low... But, it's still good...
SUMMARY: To sum it all up... This game is a must buy... Whether you're a hardcore DMC fan or not... Very cool actions of different styles: use the Ebony and Ivory as you become a Level3 Gunslinger... Slash your way to victory with Swordmaster... Showcase your speed with Trickster... And be as tough as steel with Royal Guard... not to mention stopping time with Quicksilver... and fool your enemies when you have a fighting shadow with Doppelganger... This game has everything you want in an action game...
Try this and your perception of silver-haired men will change!
-Dante has his own Devil Form instead of morphing into the demon that belongs to his weapon.
THE BAD: -The camera can be annoying
-The environments aren't too varied
-WAAAAAAY Harder than the others.
SUMMARY: This is definitely the best Devil May Cry yet. Too bad Vergil's the bad guy, a good story would have been that he spent the last year hunting demons worldwide and now you both need to stop the biggest demon badass. But that's not the story so i'll just hope for a DMC4.
Now Dante has his own unique devil form and it stays on as long as Devil Trigger's activated, that's definitely cool in comparison to DMC1. The camera can be a pain but besides that and the dificulty it's the best game. The cutscene fight parts are the coolest, that first one with Dante in his office blew me away!
