  1. The awe inspiring graphics, excellent music, intuitive gameplay, and replay value round out an excellent game that will rival "Metal Gear Solid 2" as game of the year.
  2. You don’t just kill creatures, you make them into abstract art by slicing, dicing, or machine gunning ’em to bits.
  3. The best action adventure game on the planet.
  4. DMC’s lightning fast gameplay presents an experience that will make you play until your thumbs bleed.
  5. 92
    The fastest, sexiest, loudest, and, like all things spawned from the bowels of hell, intensely addictive assault on your senses to hit the PS2 thus far.
  6. Perhaps not the deepest of games, revolving as it does around slaughtering demons and finding the appropriate key-substitute to open the next door, but it's certainly one of the most stylish and downright entertaining I've played in recent months.
  7. While camera problems are nothing new, Devil May Cry's biggest flaw is that it ends too quickly. Thus, its biggest strength is also its biggest weakness: the fast-paced nature of the game makes it easier to finish.

    Devil May Cry is one of those games that you can not stop playing, especially if you are a lover of style games Hack and Slash, I often had difficulty completing some missions, which are the chapters of the game, I can say that I love the Saga Devil May Cry.O game has a gambling frenetic and spectacular soundtracks, which reminds me of the Resident Evil series of games, which brought upon me a sense of enormous Nostalgia.Esse without doubt is the list of the best games I ever play in my vida.Eu I enjoyed the characters, especially the Dante that without doubt is one of the strongest characters of the game world, and very charismatic, which marked the games in style Hack and Slash. Now back to the part where I said:'' Devil May Cry is one of those games that you can not stop playing,'' I said it exactly because it has great replay factor, which you can complete the game in many difficulties, and the game has a huge arsenal of weapons and abilities, you can acquire throughout the game, to kill more monsters to be removed they drop orbs. And that's why for me this game deserves note 10/10 Expand

    I think that this is one of the best PS2 games to date. But this game is so hard it will give u gray hair or an ulcer, the reason I didnt give this a 9 is beacuse there are no cheats to help you. Expand

    Good game..the camara sucks though, stuff attacks you and you can't see it half the time. or you attack things and don't know what you're attacking. Everything else is fun though. Expand

    I was TOTALLY turned off by the extremely show-stopping camera angles. This is a virtually unplayable game to my opinion. I feel so sorry to have bought that one! Expand
