  1. There’s more new content than you’d usually find in a Special Edition. [May 2006, p.128]
  2. It's hardly the prettiest game ever, and the story is laden with nonsense, but it's a game with a racing pulse - energising, like the best action games are supposed to be. [Oct 2006, p.90]
  3. Just don't blame us for the clumsy controls, dodgy camera angles and ultra-frustrating gameplay. [Sept 2006, p.104]
  4. Though it's like a fish out of water on the PC, this straight port of a great, gruelingly fast and intense PlayStation 2 action adventure game can still be exciting.
  5. DMC3 has a few conversion issues - low-res textures and fiddly joypad setting-up - and lack of quicksaves can be infuriating when you have to begin a boss battle all over again, but overall it's infernal fun. [Oct 2006, p.78]
  6. With inexplicable control schemes, and unhelpful camera, irritating bugs, and mangy-looking textures, there's nothing remarkable about the sloppy job Capcom did porting the budget-priced action-adventure from the Playstation 2. [May 2007, p.70]
  7. 58
    As great an upgrade as it was for console owners, its awful performance on even the most juiced of machines and craptacular controls do it terrible, terrible harm.
  8. Just say no to half-assed porting, folks. [Mar 2007, p.69]

    This game was obviously thrown straight over to the PC without even testing before it was sent out to the factory. Unplayable, poor graphics on a monitor, and just an abysmal game. I'm sure it would be better on the PS2 which is what it should have stayed on. Full Review »

    This game has the most amount of bugs i've ever seen; and at 1680x1050 it looks so bad it makes your eyes bleed. As for the controls don't even get me started i feel betrayed. Full Review »

    This is probably an awesome game on the PS2, but the PC version is abysmal. Everything about it screams 3 interns were given a week to hammer out a working port. Full Review »
