Excerpt: Several thousand years have passed since the demon warrior Sparda raised his sword against the unholy world to save the human race. Victorious and assured that evil forces had been confined, Sparda joined mankind and fathered Dante, a half human-half demon son infused with the power of a...
Conclusion: While the emphasis is on the action over adventure, the world is fairly intricately laid out, set up with several small stretches of gameplay that link to what feels like one big set piece.
Excerpt: Devil May Cry is the series that, in my opinion, brought difficulty back into the modern day gaming era. Not since the days of regular Nintendo had I been challenged by such a difficult game. The game made you learn patterns and figure out more effect ways of taking out enemies and bosses.
Excerpt: Because the second Devil May Cry wasn't well received, it seems that Capcom needed to give the series a fresh restart. In Devil May Cry 3 , we're given insight to the early days of devil hunter, Dante.
Pros: Intense and challenging action, Graphics are top notch, Audio portion is pretty solid, Bloody Palace and Vergil modes, Rebalanced difficulty

Conclusion: This game is a no brainer. At $20 for the Special Edition (with extra goodies!), Devil May Cry 3 is required reading for the PS2. Put away the angst, put away the stories, and put away the squad based tactics.
Excerpt: The Devil May Cry series has become something of a staple on the PS2. Developed in-house by Capcom, the first game cast the player as Dante, a private investigator of the supernatural. It seems that 2000 years ago a demon rebelled against the devil in a bid to help mankind.
Excerpt: Vergil rocks. If you were thinking that his placement in Devil May Cry 3: Special Edition was fluff, if you were thinking he’d just be another skin for Dante, let me set you straight: He’s not.
