Summary: Parents need to know that kids with any fear of the occult should probably avoid this title. The game is set in motion by the coming of Hell on Earth -- while the main character tries to lighten the mood with stylish moves and sassy dialogue, darkness permeates the game's atmosphere.
Devil May Cry 3: Dante's Awakening - Special Edition Review
24 January 2006
Excerpt: One of last year's most challenging games is somewhat kinder and gentler in Devil May Cry 3: Dante's Awakening - Special Edition. Purists might scoff at the milder difficulty level of the still-tough hack-and-slash action, though they'll probably like the decent new bonus features added to this budget-priced rerelease--especially the ability to play through the game's levels as Dante's ruthless twin brother, Vergil.
Pros: Features a compelling and fairly well developed new player character, Vergil, Highly responsive, fluid, well-designed combat system makes for great action, Much more reasonable difficulty level than the original version, Various bonus extras not found in the original version, like a survival mode, Budget price
Cons: The bonus extras aren't fully fleshed out and feel like they were thrown in, Since combat isn't as gruelingly difficult, it's also somewhat less rewarding
Excerpt: There’s no denying it: violence is an excellent staple for a video game. “But we have to look at the effects it could be having on childr-”. I’m sorry, I can’t hear you. The volume is too loud, and I’m consumed with the visceral thrill of Capcom’s new action adventure title, Devil May Cry 3. “Violence is a morose game concep-” Shh. Here, take this sword, and that large gun. Now go! Go and destroy! Destroy everything .
Summary: Having spawned one of the worst sequels in console history, it looked like game over for Capcom’s super-stylish Devil May Cry. But in going back to the series’ roots and reinventing the sexy hero’s monster-mashing missions, the gaming gurus have created a slick adventure that’s sure to banish bad memories of the second instalment.
Conclusion: Devil May Cry 3 tar serien tillbaka till den topp den är värd att ligga på. Att koppla bort hjärnan och på ren automatik massmörda mängder av demoner är skön avkoppling när allt annat känns tungt. Okej för att det är svårt och att Dante lider av överdriven kaxighet, men det är saker jag kan köpa när jag får en superb totalupplevelse i slutändan. Älskade du ettan älskar du det här. Och älskade du Dante då det begav sig, då kommer du att älska honom ännu mer nu.
