    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.

    Capcom hasn't touched the gameplay, but they've sharpened the look and left it fully intact without cocking it up (looking at you, Konami!) to bring new and old gamers a taste of top quality action games that still reign supreme today. Well, at least two quality action games that is.

    This collection is a good way to revisit the two best games in the series, though it may be better suited to newcomers than gamers who just want to relive their favorite moments.

    An HD collection that brings back two of Dante's most memorable moments (DMC and DMC3 - DMC2 is not worth mentioning). Young gamers should own it just to see how everything begun and older ones should get it in order to experience the beauty of DMC and DMC3 in HD resolution.

    If you've played these games to death, you should probably go ahead and skip this one. But if you've never spent any time blasting enemies out of the air and cleaving them in twain as Dante, go get this collection now.

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

    A top-shelf effort that spiffs up the series with touched up visuals and plenty of extras. Having all three games together in a collection like this is a golden opportunity for veterans to get reacquainted with Dante. And if you've somehow missed out on Devil May Cry, then this is your chance to finally experience a trilogy that played a large part in paving a new road for action games.

    The Devil May Cry HD Collection's best assets are its price and the sheer quantity of content. But as years have gone by, the camera stands out as a sore spot on this iconic action series. The combat, difficulty, and highly-critical rating system make it an exciting piece of gaming history and worth checking out if you missed it the first time around.

    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.

    Dante's walk is an awkwardness that constantly reminds you these are old games. Nevertheless: the atmosphere, the great voice acting and the cool battles are reason enough to add this collection to your... collection. Well, part 1 and 3, anyways. Just think of part 2 as a bonus.

    Two great games and one that you should probably ignore. [Issue#217, p.74]

    A decent assembly of last-generation classics, even if Capcom didn't do quite enough with the package.

    Yes, there are certain areas where the graphics look dated and the lack of camera control can be annoying, but past these complaints you have a collection of games with the frantic gameplay that inspired the likes of God of War & Bayonetta, and it offers a lot of fun.

    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.

    Devil May Cry: HD Collection is a very inconsistent port of three legendary game titles. The only reason this could be considered a success,Devil May Cry: HD Collection is a very inconsistent port of three legendary game titles. The only reason this could be considered a success, is because it's some of the best games of all time on your current console. Buy it only if your interested in a minor upgrade of the PS2 classics.
