    Playing the original game alongside the re-release of Dante's Awakening is reason enough for fans and newcomers alike to pick this up without hesitation and even if the reboot fails to recapture the glory of old, this collection shows that it's never been a better time to strap on the leather and slay a few demons.

    Just before the release of the next DmC, Capcom invites us into a revival trip to play as Dante in the three PS2 episodes which brought the serie to the next level.

    While light on extras, the Devil May Cry HD Collection shows that two-thirds of the original DMC trio are still fun today.

    The series which influenced the whole action genre grew old but it has good playability and thanks to HD remastering it's still attractive. [May 2012]

    Devil May Cry HD Collection is a compilation of the first three Devil May Cry games from the PlayStation 2. The port includes more additions to the original series that includes trophies and high definition graphics, but the remastering process is not as good as we expected.
  7. 60
    This HD Collection feels like a wasted opportunity. If you already have the originals for PlayStation 2, there aren't any other reasons to buy this. Still, three games for 39.99 is a reasonable deal.

    Its hard to believe ten years have passed since Dante first swaggered onto our screens in the Devil May Cry series and now here is our chanceIts hard to believe ten years have passed since Dante first swaggered onto our screens in the Devil May Cry series and now here is our chance to catch up. Capcom has managed to do a better job this time around compared to the sloppy HD Resident Evil Collection and disappointing issues with the HD Silent Hill Collection we have a HD collection that stands up to its gaming legacy. Sadly the cutscenes remain in original 4;3 aspect but everything else has being brought up with a nice modern lick. DMC and DMC3 are the picks of the litter whereas 2 is the black sheep, but remains playable and a prime example of how to severely take a series in the wrong direction.

    Devil May Cry set the standard for action games at the time and remains a solid romp with some tough boss fights, plenty of action and camp action. DMC3 remains in my opinion the best action game available. It contains a wealth of content, introducing styles, a huge variety of environments, great variety in enemies and some fantastic set pieces.

    An excellent collection released at a brilliant price and worth is place on anyones shelf beside Bayonetta, God Of War and Ninja Gaiden.

    NOTE: The score at the top reflects the over all package of the collection not for each of the individual games.
    The over all HD collection is a great way to be introduced to one of the most influential series in gaming that created the hack and slash genera. The collection it self may not have the highest graphical fidelity and some of the environment models seem dated but it is still a worth while package.

    Devil May Cry Hd:
    Score: 7/10
    The game that started the hack and slash genre is a game that still holds up in some areas but is held back by other areas. The fixed camera can be a problem when trying to locate your way through-out the
    castle. The voice acting is pretty wooden and some of the audio has its hick ups. For example, the deamons and bosses can be heard very clearly while Dante's audio is very quiet and can be barely be hear. It doesn't help that for some reason the other characters have subtitles as opposed to Dante. The game does shine through the deep combat system which gives way for multiple combos and how it rewards you for varying your tactics. The boss battle in particular really test your skills and the overall game design leaves the door open for further expansion on the combat.

    Devil May Cry 2 Hd:
    Score: 4/10
    The second game unfortunately takes a few steps backwards from the standards set by its predecessor. The story is really inconsequential to the over all mythos and the chrecmasic Dante lost all of his charm in this game aside from the occasional scene. The combat had been heavily watered down as the game sometimes encourage you to repeat the same combos to defeat the opponents. The enemy's have very neat designs but they never felt threating even on Dante Must Die mode. The bosses where also very shallow with the exception of the final boss on Dante's side. The campaign with Lucia had potential as it is about her finding her own identity but the story lacked the depth required for me to care. It can easily be said that Devil May Cry 2 is the weakest entry in the series.

    Devil May Cry 3 HD:
    Score: 9/10
    Fortunately the designers behind he second game made marginal improvements over the prequel to the original game. They moved from making the weakest entrance to the series with the strongest entry in the series. The games combat had more depth and the weapons you aquire from bosses are more satisfying to use. The game is difficult but fair (for the most part). The bosses really stand out and test your skills that you use throught the game. This is even the one case that I can thik of in which a prequel is better than the original work as the story is much more fleshed out and Dante is even more likeable than he was in the first entry. The biggest highlight of the game story wise was the rivalry between Dante and his twin brother Vergil as it showed their conflict and their grudging respect for each other. As climatic as the final boss battle is though, Vergil does seem a little too overpowered after he achieves his devil trigger form. The fight against Arkam also gives you a forced handicap as the core mechanics change when Vergil enters the fray. Aside from that and the fact that you need to constantly go through menus to change your weapons and to purchase upgrades, Devil May Cry is my favorite Hack and Slash game of all time and is the pinnacle of third person action games.
