Devil May Cry HD Collection
Biggest complaint is hereby eradicated
The biggest complaint I seem to find in this game is "The HD upgrade isn't much of an upgrade". Compare the two side by side, HD vs original. The FPS is far higher, the blacks are a lot better, the gameplay is smoother, and there is a LOT more detail. the video below would help to prove my point.
Anticipation of the Year
For me, this year in gaming will not be as big as the last. I pre-ordered 12 games last year. I've only pre-ordered 2 thus far and it doesn't look like i'll be pre-ordering too many more. However, there is one thing coming out this year that blows almost every game that i've bought in the past out of the water. The Devil May Cry Series is and has always been one of my favorite series to play. There are just so many aspects about the game that can entertain you for hours and make the games playable over and over. That being said, you can imagine how excited i was to see the HD collection announced. My anticipation grows each passing day. Not only do we get to play some classic games in a remade HD setting, but now we have achievements to strive for to give that much more to do on the games. This definitely will not disappoint (seeing as though most of the DMC fans have played the classic games) and will keep us plenty busy until the anticipated DMC5 comes out. On 4/3/12 i will be ready to slay some demons....in HD!!!!
I'm really excited for this
First before I make the preview buzz i want to thank you CAPCOM for bringing this three amazing games to the 360 and PS3.. I can't wait to play it.. I already pre-ordered this game and I'm gonna get it the first day.. Ever since I bought a 360 and PS3 I've been searching for information about DMC HD collection, at first the news in the internet were all hoax but now Capcom confirmed it I'm really happy.. I wanna play as Dante again.. Especially DMC 3 Dante which is hella funny and sarcastic..I've finished DMC 1 2 3 up until Dante Must Die mode.. I've also finished DMC 4 until HeII and HeII mode.. Thats how addicted I am at Devil May Cry games.. For me Devil May Cry is the King of Hack and Slash games It has complex combos and stunning visuals when it was on the PS2.. Many players hate the Complex combos of DMC but for me thats what make its challenging coz I just don't want to button mash in Hack and Slash games.. Like how other Hack and Slash games are made.. So all in all this game is a must for me.. Like what Dante always say "This party's gettin' crazy! Let's rock!"
A blast to play
Without knowing anything about Devil May Cry, I picked it up at my local Gamestop not knowing what awesomeness it had in store. The Devil May Cry series has earned a lot of awards for it's flawless franchise of games and I can see why. You get the first three games that were released on the Playstation 2 all in HD. You have Devil May Cry, Devil May Cry 2, and Devil May Cry: Dante's Awakening. The stories are fantastic, the combat is fast paced and fun to play, and the voice acting is great. The only thing I did not like at first was the camera. It will switch locations and it kind of got on my nerves. However, what I learned is that this game was supposed to be a Resident Evil game and somebody messed up on it, creating this awesome franchise so I realized that it has that same camera style of Resident Evil games. Devil May Cry has earned a place on my favorite games list and hopefully you will find a place for it to when you pick it up at Gamestop.
Nastalgia never looked so Stylish!!
I loved the first Devil May Cry Collection but it was for the PS2, now that I can get the first 3 Devil May Cry games for my 360, and in HD no less, I was like a kid on Christmas morning. Getting to play every Devil May Cry by going to a menu, getting acheivements for beating demons into the ground, this collection has it all. It is a must buy for Hack and Slash and Hardcore DMC fans.
Take Home the Classics
Every once in a while, a title comes along that re-defines the future of gaming. It's a turning point in game development, and spawns hundreds of budget clones that try to cash in while it's hot. In 2001, DMC was one of those games. It single-handedly invented the action game genre as we know it. DMC3 invented true Stylish Action- with weapon switching, evasive maneuvers, and over-the-top powers.
The ports are really solid. I had some concerns after reading about the problems with other HD collectiosn recently, like the Silent Hill HD Collection. Visuals are crisp and clean, and the games look excellent considering their age. DMC1's textures hold up surprisingly well (shows how far good art direction can go) aside from the pixelated skybox or so. DMC3 looks absolutely gorgeous. They added some anti-aliasing, and the motion capture looks impressive even by today's standards. The only gripe that some people might have is that various menus and cutscenes (the ones that are full motion video) are still in 4:3 ratio. This isn't a dealbreaker for me, and recreating these videos would have been pretty impractical.
Some people are saying that they stretched the aspect ratio of the games to fit the widescreen. THIS IS ERRONEOUS. They actually widened the viewing area to 16:9, which makes some of the camera angle griefs much better.
Of course, the entire series runs at 60fps for buttery smooth combat. No hiccups or framerate issues. No technical glitches or bugs. The gameplay is pretty much flawless.
As for extras, the Vault comes with a collection of never before released pre-production concept art. One of the other reviewers on Amazon said that this is all stuff you can get on the internet, but it's simply not true. There are several pieces of art from back when DMC1 was a Resident Evil title. These never made their way to the general public. There's also a nice selection of music from each of the three titles. This is, unfortunately, incomplete, but it's still a nice touch. Throw your favorite track on while you peruse the gallery.
DMC2 is a throwaway title. It always has been. Don't let that discourage you because DMC1 and DMC3 together are worth well more than the $40 asking price. Even so, it looks as good as it ever has.
If you have ANY interest at all in action games, maybe you want to see what all the hubbub is about, or if you want to revisit these incredible titles with gorgeous visuals, you owe it to yourself to pick up this collection.
Started playing it and I started to like it, but when there got to be more action in it I LOVE IT!!!
Just played it and it is the game i played as a kid with better graphics and better camera angles. the feel to the game seems better ,but i still hate how the bosses use the cheappy attacks at the end when they have low heath but it is expected from a campcom game. love this game.
Will for sure bring back memorys!
First off being a fan of all the Devil May Cry series this is great, just bought it today when i saw it and it brings back so many memorys loved all the games. For sure BUY this hd collection.
Thank you Capcom.
I love this game so much, and would like to thank capcom for doing this.
