    The Devil May Cry trilogy is undoubtedly an older collection of games that can feel dated at times, but without considering the graphics, it often feels just as modern as a game that came out last Tuesday.

    One of the most lackadaisical remasters that I’ve ever played.

    The HD Collection offers nothing new and looks technically out of date. Only suitable for those who want to catch up on Dante's first performances.

    Devil May Cry HD Collection is a straight porting of the collection released in 2012 on PS3 and Xbox 360. Textures and assets are pretty much the same and there is no brand new content added to this new release. This game is a lazy remaster that delivers 1080p resolution and a 60fps rock solid gameplay, but nothing more. It represents a missed opportunity by Capcom, bearing in mind the impressive remasters we are seeing these days.

    ​Devil May Cry HD Collection is the same game proposed in 2012. Nothing has been changed, especially the flaws.

    All in all, Devil May Cry HD Collection the second go around is an unacceptable product, which feels like a waste of money.

    And that, in a nutshell, is the perfect descriptor for Devil May Cry HD Collection: torture. I don’t know what your memories may be telling you about these games from 10-15 years ago, but I can tell you that if you play them now, it’s likely to leave you wondering how they could have become so beloved in the first place. If you have fond memories, keep them there, rather than allowing them to become sullied by this hideous abomination.

    Really great collection, with maybe the exception of Devil May Cry 2.

    Load times are SUPER fast compared to the previous HD collection and

    Load times are SUPER fast compared to the previous HD collection and default Devil May Crys on the PS2.

    The Devil May Cry collection is just as great on the newer consoles as it ever was on any of the older consoles. The 1080p upgrade, 60 fps andThe Devil May Cry collection is just as great on the newer consoles as it ever was on any of the older consoles. The 1080p upgrade, 60 fps and amazingly quick load times only ensure that this is the best possible version of this collection. Never have I felt like such a badass in a video game, aside from God of War and Ninja Gaiden which were both heavily influenced by this series. Devil May Cry blew me away on the PS2 and it still leaves me awestruck to this day.

    The only detractor from the overall score would be because of Devil May Cry 2, which is easily the weakest game in this franchise, and yes that includes the DmC reboot (a game that was far better than this one). This game undoubtedly became one of the worst sequels of all time, if not THE worst. It was handed off to a completely different development team and it shows. The game itself is entirely playable and even challenging at times, but it lacked all the style, flair and finesse of the 1st and 3rd games. The reboot was also light years ahead of this game and was actually a very well made entry into the DMC canon.

    The 1st DMC is what started it all but most would say DMC3 is the crowned jewel of the series. The ability to switch play styles, the sheer amount of devil arms, and the option of playing as Dante's brother Vergil made this a stunning game with a wealth of replay value. It's a toss up between the 1st & 3rd as to which game is harder but the 3rd game definitely offers more content. A fantastic game which gave an interesting back-story as a prequel to the 1st.

    This collection is certainly a must have for die-hard fans and newcomers alike. My favorite game series ever and one that I feel every gamer should give a chance. $30 for 2 of the greatest games ever made and a somewhat average sequel is an excellent deal. Let's rock!

    This is mostly gonna be a review of Devil May Cry 3 because I could not really get into the the other ones. God for me Devil May Cry 3 isThis is mostly gonna be a review of Devil May Cry 3 because I could not really get into the the other ones. God for me Devil May Cry 3 is one of the greatest action games that has been made only surpassed by few others . Thing I can say is that I would like it to be more like the fourth game but that is a silly complaint . And it has one of the best stories in an action game Expand

    The Devil May Cry HD Collection is a re-release of great games that could have been done better. The collection is still worth a purchaseThe Devil May Cry HD Collection is a re-release of great games that could have been done better. The collection is still worth a purchase because it’s Devil May Cry, but don’t expect the collection to blow your mind like what happened when the games first came out almost 20 years ago.

    Capcom calls this an "HD Collection" but the games are still in their original 4:3 format instead of 16:9 HD widescreen. There are very minor touch-ups to environments and character models, so much of the PS2 quality is still there. This coincides with Capcom’s apparent new business model of building up hype for a game to be amazing and delivering the players a half-assed game that does little to nothing to please their fanbase within modern standards. An “HD Collection” running CG cutscenes in their original 480i resolution from the PS2 is a slap in the face. There are no new features added to any of the games other than an art gallery. There’s no option for online co-op, no time trials, no leader scoreboards, nothing. This collection is nothing more than a very slightly polishing of three PS2 games that have remapped controls.

    The gameplay that originally made the games astonishing is still there, but it was not improved on in any way. The good thing is that DMCHDC still has that kick ass and look awesome doing it feeling, but I was expecting more out of Capcom. I was hoping that this wouldn’t be another Street Fighter 5 launch, but it is. The good thing is that because there’s no online options at all in DMCHDC, there’s no risk of a repeat of Monster Hunter World’s connection hell (details can be seen on Monster Hunter World’s twitter page).

    The audio is still the original stereo quality. The music doesn’t even have a new arrangement. The voice acting is the same as on the PS2, so don’t expect anything new there either. At least the music is still good enough to get you to accept that it hasn’t been touched at all.

    Overall, I’d suggest that the game is worth a PS+/XBOX Live discount, but don’t give Capcom their asking price for it.

The graphics have barely changed, and in some places are worse. This is more of a port than a remaster.

    On a side note I do hope they eschew the punishing combo system in future iterations.

    Avoid. Stick to the PS2 versions.
