Excerpt: In late January 2005, Capcom's action-packed game, Devil May Cry 3 , was added to the list of PlayStation 2 Greatest Hits. Unlike most Greatest Hits, Devil May Cry 3 is actually a Special Edition version of the original game released in 2005. This latest version features an all-new boss battle, turbo mode, and the ability to play through the game as Dante's nemesis, Vergil!
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. Before his shop is even open, he's attacked by the demon forces summoned when his twin brother, Vergil, and a human by the name of Arkham raise a demon tower in the center of the city. As the story goes, the demon Sparda closed the door between the human and demon realms.
Pros: Intense and challenging action, Graphics are top notch, Audio portion is pretty solid, Bloody Palace and Vergil modes, Rebalanced difficulty
Cons: Some bad camera angles, Vergil mode is not all that great
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. On that note, DMC 1 had crazy, over the top boss battles and you really had to give them your all to come out the victor.
Excerpt: Several centuries ago, a man named Dante Alighieri wrote one of the most influential works of modern literature. In the Divine Comedy , Dante portrays himself as a mere traveler wandering into the dark depths of Hell. At his side, the legendary poet Virgil acts as his guide throughout the underworld.
