Cool combo slashers. I haven't got round to 5 yet so I can't comment on that. 3 was my favourite. Just a great, polished game. Dante was given a goofy attitude but that's what gives him his personality and his charm. I've not played DmC. I don't appreciate what they did to the character. He's a big part of the draw and in my opinion, they fucking wrecked him big time. Some will tell me that's stupid. I couldn't give a fuck. How about a new Mario game. Instead of the recognisable Mario you all grew up with and love, Mario now sports long blonde hair, he smokes and he swears. No, fuck off. It's horse shit. Trying to tell me Dante wasn't cool. Mate, fucking state of you:



Get fucked.

DMC 3 is my favourite. Man that game oozed style. The gameplay, enemy design, art direction and the beautifully choreographed cutscenes were out of this world when I first played it. The bosses and the boss weapons were great too. It was a perfect game and I feel that no other DMC game has came even close to it. I wish they would keep everything exactly the same and just update the graphics and character models as they look dated now. I would pay a high price for that remaster.

Those were pre-release design concepts. DmC Dante doesn't look like that.

Awesome series, I'm a huge fan.
Dmc and dmc 2 are okay, dmc 3 was the best in the series, dmc 4 was okay, dmc reboot from ninja theory is actually a great game, never really understood the hate that it gets and dmc 5 was also pretty awesome.

I know I'm in the minority, but 4 was my favorite probably.

For me personally, the reboot was a game I never asked for. Much of my dislike is rooted in the total overhaul of the story and characters. The dumbing down of the combat certainly didn't help either. Perhaps I should give the definitive edition a chance some day, but as it stands I am fine with replaying DMC 1, 3, 4 and 5.

I mean, I was mad at the change at the time, and would have preferred a true DMC, I still enjoyed the game however.

For one thing, you're definitely going to have a unique experience going through them now.

I feel like they're all very much a product of their time and it's changed over the years along with the whole industry.

1st was ground breaking for the time.
We were all amazing with Onimusha at the day, but the store popped in the import demo from Japan of Dmc and it blew our minds :)

Obviously the combat was taken to another level in number 3 but the first was the first of its kind and amazing

Totally forgot about Trish being playable in DMC2. I think you need to complete both campaigns on hard for that. It is cool how she has more or less the same moveset as DMC1 dante.

Both play thoughs on Normal have unlocked the "Bloody Palace" as well.

Yes, DMC2 introduced the bloody palace. Another essential addition to the franchise. On what system are you playing these games? The DMC3 release on switch has added co-op for bloody palace, which looks like loads of fun. On PC there is probably already a mod for it.

Oh wow coop would be so much fun.

Just started Devil May Cry 3 and it seems so much better than the first two. From the graphics, to the music. I did laugh when it made me choose between "gold" and "yellow" at the start. I chose Gold but god knows what that does lol.

It refers to the two game over mechanics of the first two games. With gold you are revived on the spot like in DMC2 when you use a gold orb. With yellow you are revived from the last checkpoint when you use a yellow orb like in DMC1. If you die without gold orb, you restart from the last checkpoint. If you die without yellow orb, you restart the entire mission. Something along these lines.

Ah wow sounds like I made the correct call then.

Oh and I forgot to mention its PS4 I'm playing on :)

Is there just the one character for DMC 3?

It's definitely the best one so far. Will probably take a break between the others to keep it fresh.

There is another character, but that one does not have its own storyline. You just get to replay the game with a different character, and you have some extra cutscenes. I think it is unlocked after you beat the game on any difficulty.

it's a great series although inconsistent, but also one of the few remaining pure exemples of its genre, maybe even the last one since bayo3 seems lost to time

dmc is a classic that shows its age but it's still brilliant
dmc 2 is garbage
dmc 3 is another classic
dmc 4 is good but has too many issues and didn't manage to improve the genre enough
dmc 5 is another great game, feels a bit less less inspired than 3 was, but in terms on 1v1 combat is currently the best the genre has to offer, in terms of crowd control and group fights, i still think the first bayo is better.
