Devil May Cry HD Collection
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.
Pain in the butt!
I got this game on a whim.I wanted something different to play.I had a few problems and I had to actually go online to figure it out. I'm a hardcore gamer.I played anything and everything.But my biggest complaint was you have to constantly save and save.If you don't you will have to start the mission over.And trying to reload your save was a task in itself.I know when the originals came out 2001,2003,and 2005.And released on high def in 2011-12!The game play is about individual missions.I guess its to each his or hers own likes.Would I recommend this to any one.The answer is NO!
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.
One the Best Collections
This collection is great. It gives both existing fans and new ones an opportunity to play through the first three games. Before, I had only played the first game and I was borrowing it from a friend. All three games have distinctly different styles of gameplay music and story which boosts the overall value of the package. The original will always be a classic.
AMAZING AND WORTH IT
its a great remake of the classic games and really fun all of them are really great but dmc2 not everyone enjoys it but its a great price for three hd games and great game play but bad graphics but they enhanced the sound and its all fun. p.s its up to u if u like dmc2 not everyone dose
Started playing it and I started to like it, but when there got to be more action in it I LOVE IT!!!
Great for people who want a challenge.
The game was great because you had constant challenge after challenge. And it took a very long time to complete a true hardcore Gamers game.
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.
hate it good at first but terrible afte 2 hours dont play itt borrrrrrrrrrrrrrriiiiiiiiiiiiiinnnnnnnngg
