Summary

Predating the original greatness to new bounds!!!

The Good

This is one of the greatest games I have played in years, not too many games are able to suck you in anymore quite like Devil May Cry 3. From the beginning level to the very end, Devil May Cry 3 was made for fans of the first Devil May Cry! Adding upon the series, you have a new story, new bosses, and a new combat system that works on different style of combat. In Devil May Cry 3, Dante is now outfitted with styles of combat, there is Sword Master, Gunslinger, Trickster, and Royal Guard(with two unlockable styles later on in the game). While going through the game, the more you use a style, the more experience it will gain, thus allowing it to level up to master level which provides you with more attacks to use with that particular style.

Another great addition to Devil May Cry 3 is the compelling story. Before and after levels, the player is treated to high quality cut scenes that give you more and more story for you to salivate over.

For any gamers who like great music in their games, this game will definitely not let them down. Devil May Cry 3's soundtrack consists of high tension metal while you fight minor enemies to the bosses.

All in all, Devil May Cry 3 is one of the greatest games made, and I believe Capcom has more than made up for the unwanted child known as Devil May Cry 2.

The Bad

There wasn't anything that I didn't like about this game, but to some, this game may be too hard, mainly because this game really has no easy mode, sure, there is an easy mode in the menu, but there really is no difference between it and normal mode, but to all hardcore Devil May Cry 3 players, they'll know what to expect, and will be able to adjust to the difficulty.

If you do find this game too hard, I suggest you start with Devil May Cry 2, then move on to Devil May Cry, and then play this(that was in order from easiest to hardest).

The Bottom Line

This game is worth buying, not only to Devil May Cry fans, but also to anyone looking for a real challenge!!!
