    The Switch port of Devil May Cry 3 Special Edition is a wonderful upgrade to an excellent action-adventure video game. The Freestyle Mode gives players so many options to inflict pain on hellspawn, and co-op Bloody Palace is a fun diversion. If you’ve never played DMC3 before, or you did years ago, this version is the definitive way to play it. I can’t recommend it enough for series fans or outsiders alike.

    Devil May Cry 3 remains one of the very best action games ever made. It has certainly aged in places, but that turbo-charged, combo-heavy action feels as fresh today as it did back in 2005. The new Freestyle mode – which lets players swap combat styles on the fly at any point during the action – is a genuinely excellent addition to the package, and the ability to play Bloody Palace in local co-op is the cherry on top of a Switch port that should appeal to anyone interested in sampling the devilish delights of this all-time classic.

    Devil May Cry 3: Special Edition for the Switch is the definitive version of arguably the best Devil May Cry game. Freestyle mode is a revelation that makes a great game even better, and the rest of the port is similarly top-notch. If you're a fan of the game or the franchise, then DMC3 for the Switch is absolutely worth the money. The party is really getting started now.

    An unexpectedly enhanced version of one of the best action games of the PS2 era, which even now offers better and deeper combat than most modern rivals.

    Devil May Cry 3: Special Edition for Nintendo Switch is the best version of the game so far, but this piece of gaming history is beginning to show its age.

    Considéré par la communauté des fans comme le meilleur opus de la saga, Devil May Cry 3 Special Edition trouve sa version ultime sur Switch. Capcom aurait pu se contenter d’un simple portage mais ils ont voulu faire un petit cadeau aux joueurs (et justifier peut être de repasser à la caisse) en leur permettant de changer de style de combat à la volée. C’est peut être un détail pour vous mais pour les fans ça veut dire beaucoup…et que dire de la folie créatrice des 9999 niveaux du Palais Sanglant. La Switch a donc l’honneur d’accueillir à petit prix la version ultime d’un des meilleurs jeux d’action Hack and Slash de tous les temps. Un must-have !!!
