  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.

    Great 3rd person RPG game. Reminds me a little like final fantasy.. 10/10 for entire series. Its not a hair pulling game but more like a "tough looking game" but once you play it, so easy and fun once you get the touch. Expand

    One of the best game that PS2 can offer. Cool story, good characters and a awesome soundtrack. The graphics is like a game for PS1 and the gameplay has some bugs. Expand

    A devil Hunter that never gets touched by any means? well thats Dante, he's a badass, and kills with skills and style. The story is simple, with a lot of fun, the combos feels solid and responsive. I wish they do a HD remake for the Playstation 3 or Xbox 360. Expand

    Great style, with fun , if somewhat dumb battling. One of these easy to play tough to master type games. Alot of games try to be cool and fail. This one doesn't Expand
