    Wish they remastered this game like the graphics of Devil May Cry 5, imagine that!

    What you should do with Cerberus is use Rebellion to launch the enemy and switch to Cerberus to attack mid air, then switch back to Rebellion on you way down to minimize how fast you fall so you dont get hit by near by enemies. That's my technique at least.

    3,1,4 are the best dmc games. Shame the reboot was a failure. I gave it a chance and it was a huge disappointment. All the characters were so unlikeable, the story was trash but the only redeeming quality was the level design.

      dmc 3 most definetly. its the best 3d action game there is, bayonetta is more of a candy store then a game.

    I remember when IGN was crying because the game was too hard, i think they did a top 10 hardest games, and dmc3 was first, and im like, wait what??

    • Julio Garcia
      Julio Garcia 7 months ago

      XrX 9088 Dante Must Die, damn that i can agree, is was really hard.

    • XrX 9088
      XrX 9088 7 months ago

      Well if its on normal difficulty, its still fair even on the original dmc3. But on dmd, its a different story.

    • Julio Garcia
      Julio Garcia 7 months ago

      I was walking about the original DMC3, i know i died a couple of times, but it wasnt imposible as some people claim.

    • XrX 9088
      XrX 9088 7 months ago

      its not really that hard if you're talking about the special edition or after the first one. But then dmc3 dmd difficulty is freakin hard, I would say one of the hardest games I've played back in ps2.

    One thing that I really don't like about the new DMC is that its main character is Nero. Why are they giving Nero the spotlight? Dante should be the main.

      Manowarrior \m/ 6 months ago +1

      +Magatsu Izanagi There's a reason why DMC3 is still universally known to be the best DMC game,Dante>Nero,Nero has a simpler moveset than Dante,Dante has more depth and is more fun and stylish to play as when you mastered him,he's limitless whereas Nero is not

  • Daniel Frank

    DMC3 was and still is the best DMC game. It introduced different styles, amazing bosses and well crafted levels. And Dante is the funniest, coolest and most badass in DMC3.

      You're comparing a 2005 ps2 game to a 2011 Ps3 game by the same devs. It's an obligation to be "better".

    DMC3 is still the best DMC. It had a large variety of weapons and playstyles, and the Devil Triggers were designed by the guys behind Digital Devil Saga, which had the signature weird SMT monster designs.

    I bought the HD collection on ps4 cause Iโ€™ve never played dmc. Played all of them in order, 1,2,3,4 and DMC. I made a vow to myself to not play dmc3 (hearing how great it was) until I beat dmc2 as Dante AND Lucia. One of the most boring few hours of my life

      Oliver Fletcher I couldn't do it. After I played the first one, I went to the second game, had to replay the first mission for some reason. After I completed the third mission I hoped straight to three and never looked back lol

      Bayo 1, yh. Bayo 2, nah. 2's just a more clean looking game than 1 but ditches the depth that 1 had. It looks more flashy and sick, but doesn't really have the substance 1 had y'know. That's just me though. Dmc3 is sick though

    I'm gonna keep it real, I love the DMC reboot. I was first introduced to Devil May Cry with the reboot and loved it. I played it numerous times and still play it to this day (definitive edition). So when I saw that a lot of people hated the reboot I didn't get it, so eventually I got the HD collection to see why everyone hates it. First two games I wasn't really impressed, but then I played the third game and after five minutes in I was already hooked. I loved the numerous styles you can play as and the gameplay was fast and action packed. Overall I still like the reboot more but I love Devil May Cry 3 more than the others. I wish they would've made a DMC 2 instead, but you know the OG fans gotta get theirs first with Devil May Cry 5 so maybe next time.

    What are your thoughts on Dantes Inferno vs DMC?

    • Count Artorias
      Count Artorias 7 months ago +1

      Dante's Inferno is just a lot darker than DMC, everything else, from gameplay to characters to enemy design, is inferior. Music is okay.

    • Dick Deepinsideher
      Dick Deepinsideher 7 months ago +5

      Erik Johnson I like Dantes Inferno, but it doesn't stand up to DMC. DMC3 is one of the best games ever made in my opinion.

  • LordNul1
    LordNul1 7 months ago +11

    For me the game that got me into DMC was, oddly enough Devil May Cry 2. One reason why is what happens if you DT at super low health in that game (although there's a bit of RNG involved in this unique version), and it's description in-game reveals why Dante's personality was so different in DMC2.

      The gameplay is extremely solid in this game. You can tell they focused a lot of attention on making it feel impactful and having a very difficult yet balanced challenge. Few games nail that balance. Like when your fighting a tough boss and you die a lot but each time you learn something that you can keep improving to where your finally able to win. That type of smooth curve leads to a very satisfying game.
