    I've been hearing about the DMC series for a long time, but never played any of the games yet. So I've just bought DMC3 and I have to say that I hated it. The difficult is just insane, even when I play at the easy mode, the combos are hard to complete and it seems like the enemies just will keep on coming forever. Maybe if I had 16 free-hours per day to spend on learning how to I've been hearing about the DMC series for a long time, but never played any of the games yet.

    I loved DMC1, Infact, I even enjoyed 2. But this one was just boring. Same thing over and over. Very repetitive, I beat the game. I didn't exactly like it. Stick with DMC1 if you want to have fun.

    I rented the game and at first i kinda liked it, but the bosses are rediculous. Why is easy setting so hard? Why does it feel like I'm playing another prince of persia or god of war? and why are the controls so weird? My two friends and I are big into games and we can't get past the level 9 boss, on easy ,after about 5 hours of trying, this is where I quit.

I hate a game that has crazy combos but won't let you finish them because some enemy still hits you halfway through the process. Expand

    Super gay, super moves, super combat, super devils, super enemies, super difficulty. Its actually fun until you get you're head curb stomped by the first semi-boss. Then you get to the first boss in the game and you give up. You know why? Because it is ultimately pointless. Nobody cares what happens to Dante and his made up brother who has never been brought up until this point inSuper gay, super moves, super combat, super devils, super enemies, super difficulty.

Nobody cares what happens to Dante and his made up brother who has never been brought up until this point in whatever the hell storyline this is. Its like a hodge podge of cliché's got tossed under a steam roller and then they added a touch of douche bag to our main character as he was tossed under it too. What came out was Devil May Cry III. A game more stylistically pretentious then it is difficult and a complete waste of you're time when theirs a billion other things you could be doing like sniffing glue or something more constructive.

    Wow, high scores from everyone. Ok lets see, a guitar as a weapon, Dante himself is like a goth white boy with stupid jokes,every stage seems to look the same, some of the worst Boss battles i have ever seen in a game before(The F#@ked up Ice Dog-the witch lady), Dante seems useless with his new moves(although he's younger), the difficulty is for the insane. For one I have a life, so Wow, high scores from everyone.

For one I have a life, so i'm not going to sit a game(WELL THIS GAME ANYWAY!) and play for 4 hours trying to figure out how to use all the "style" systems, cuz SwordMaster is prob the best. So what do we have so far, we have horrid gameplay where nothing flows like the first DMC and we have stupid charaters,a real nice Sh!$ story, terrible settings(not near as close a the beauiful mansion in DMC-1. If you have me Devil May Cry 2 was better than this joke of a game. Now some of you game whores might say well it was just to hard for you, well maybe but i really loved and passed the First game like 7 times, the secound game like 3 times so i kinda now what a DMC game is supposed be like. If you buy this game and once again listen to he the critics don't blame anyone if your FORCING YOURSELF to play through this game. Expand

  1. A dark mix of revealing narrative and gun-toting, sword-swinging, demon slaying action that works well with a result that's certainly satisfying.
  2. Although there have been many games in this mold, Devil May Cry 3 sets itself apart from others by incorporating fighting styles to keep this game fresh, instead of just repetitive.
  3. Well, we hate to say it, but DMC3 is still no "Devil May Cry." The world has moved on, folks, and a lot of that game's sheen is now standard issue in gaming. [PSW]
