Product Description

Devil May Cry 3: Dante's Awakening Special Edition revamps the classic Devil May Cry 3, giving you more action and adventure for a lower price. In this prequel to the original Devil May Cry, you'll play as Dante -- and acrobatic, energetic half-demon with a powerful fighting style all his own. <b>This Special Edition lets players become Dante's evil half-brother Vergil, and use his new Dark Fighter style. Also features a new boss character, turbo option, new continue system, adjusted difficulty levels (with a new "very hard" mode), and Survival and Movie modes.</b>

From the Manufacturer

Devil May Cry 3 is a thrilling new game that features an involved plotline, outstanding graphics, and brings back our mysterious hero, Dante, once again.

Set before the first Devil May Cry, the story unfolds that fateful clash between Sparda's twin sons. One of the characteristics of this game is that it adds even more styles of action, besides firearms and swords, to the mix. Players are free to choose your own fighting style by customizing Dante to your advantage. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

5.0 out of 5 stars As If the Original Devil May Cry 3 Wasn't Good Enough! January 28, 2006
Platform for Display:PlayStation2|Edition:Special
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Devil May Cry 3 was one of the best games of 2005. The only thing that kept some people away was the extreme difficulty of the game. Still, if you didn't wimp out, the game was fantastic. Now there's a special edition out, and it's one of the greatest gifts CAPCOM has ever given the Devil May Cry fans.

Since this review assumes you're all familiar with the universe of Devil May Cry 3, I suppose the only thing I really want to do here is tell you about what's new. Why should you buy this versin of Devil May Cry 3 over the original?

First things first, this game is easier than the original Devil May Cry 3. This is obvious by the new continue system that's been introduced. Before you had to get yellow orbs that were particularly expensive, and so they came on a limited basis. And then you'd run out of yellow orbs and have to play through a brutal level all over again. The new continue system pretty much ignores the yellow orbs and lets you continue from check points regardless of how many yellow orbs you have. If you have a gold orb, though, you can start right from where you died. If you did like the original yellow orb system you can still do that, but the average gamer will find the unlimited continues welcome.

The difficulty of the game, as noted above, is easier. If you didn't know, the original Devil May Cry 3 given to American gamers was much harder on the "normal" difficulty setting than in Japan. This is because "Normal" mode for America was actually the japanese "Hard" mode. It's fixed here, and it's fairly noticeable. There's also an easy mode to unlock (if you die a few times) and a "Very Hard" mode. Don't be fooled by "Very Hard" mode, though. It's virtually playing the original Devil May Cry 3.

4.0 out of 5 stars Best yet in the Devil May Cry series... March 25, 2006
Platform for Display:PlayStation2|Edition:Special
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
The first DMC was a solid game. The second one took a slight step back. This latest installment takes a giant leap forward.

DMC3 takes the best aspects of the previous two games and molds them all together in an awesome package.

The graphics and movies are beyond stunning, the gameplay is as fast and difficult as ever, the weapons have that cool feel to them, and the music rocks.

The thing i love about about this Special Edition is that it caters to every gamer out there. Theres easy modes, hard modes, cheats, new costumes, new characters, and gameplay 'styles' that would satisfy anyone. There is a ton of variety to this game and everything is balanced and solid.

Though the one thing that disappointed me was Vergils story... or lack there of.

Vergils game is basically a carbon copy of Dantes. No new levels or anything. Playing Vergils game is like playing Joachims game in Castlevania Lament of Innoncence. You will know what i mean if youve played that game...

Still, DMC3 is the greatest action/adventure title out there for the PS2. Even God of War cant touch the variety, challenge, and gameplay of this. If you want a thoroughly satisfying action rampage with a ton of replay value and unlockables than look no further.

5.0 out of 5 stars (4.5) Hardcore Gamers Need Only Apply March 20, 2006
Platform for Display:PlayStation2|Edition:Special
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
THE GOOD: Prestine Diamond-solid controls PERFECTLY balance skill and fun; gorgeous environments; phenomenal cut-scenes; ridiculously depthful combat system and attacks; very challenging difficulty; intense sound; incredible main character; nice special edition add-ons: insane replay value

THE BAD: Some annoying and vague backtracking; some slowdown during intense fights; camera can get in the way; can be irritatingly difficult about remedial tasks


The original DMC3 was absolutely notorious for its completely unforgiving checkpoint system and intensified difficulty, therefore Capcom decided that this game needed more; more balance and more fun, so it came out with this special edition. With it, there are great unlockables once you finish the main quest, like getting to play through as his twin brother Vergil, the 9,999 level Bloody Palace mode (level after level of nothing but intense combat), a more humane difficulty, and a couple of new boss fights. Now, even with all these new modes, the gameplay pretty much stays the same.

After everything, DMC3 is really a game about its combat system. You get to choose and select throughout the game a different set of fighting styles; if you like gunplay, choose the Gunslinger style; if you like sword melee, choose the SwordMaster style. You will level up these styles as you play with them, gaining new moves, as well as being able to buy new moves, upgrades, and powerups between missions. The amount of moves available and learned throughout the game will take you roughly 4 playthroughs just to master all the styles and moves. Considering you're rewarded with more red orbs (or dollars) to upgrade later on, it's worth learning to play through more and more.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Price is Right! February 3, 2006
Platform for Display:PlayStation2|Edition:Special
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I never played DMC3 and decided not to buy it, because of news about the Special Edition version release. I'm glad I waited being their are a few more unlockables. This game is quite challenging as soon as you take control of Dante. I've played and beaten DMC and that was one challenging game on Normal mode. Never got around to DMC2 due to poor reviews and customer feedback. DMC3SE so far has been entertaining. I've out grown console gaming, but several games make me flip the PS2 or NGC power switch back on. This version is definitely worth $19.99.

Once the battles start it gets less difficult through progress as you become comfortable with the controls. Controls are spot on and very precise. Graphics are very nice on the PS2. I'm playing with Gold Star continue system on Normal/Default setting, which supposedly makes the game much easier due to unlimited continue. Still you must keep track of your items. If used during a stage or boss fight the item is gone even if you fail to complete a stage or beat a boss. Being items are hard to obtain just be sure to conserve until ready to use. With the Gold Star continue system I play the ending stage bosses one or two times w/out using any items to get a feel for them. This is a good thing with the Gold Star system, but less difficult. Most importantly the game allows the player to replay previous stage/missions at any time to get a certain item they may have forgotten (blue orb piece, etc.). Challenging and very entertaining game. Cool character, decent story, nice blend of weapon and action variation, good PS2 graphic display, and lots of virtual action. For $20 definitely worth the purchase compared to some of these other games in the same price range.
