Product Description

Amazon.com

Play as Dante, half-man, half-demon, who's armed with a sword and a wide array of other firearms. You will have full, ultra-responsive 3-D control of Dante as you combat with fist, sword, gun, and a stunning variety of martial arts moves that recall Hong Kong action films. You will have at your disposal many inventive moves: use your sword to pop your enemy into the air, for example, then juggle him with blasts from your gun. You will have unprecedented control of the direction and force of your sword and other weapons. You will battle marionette butchers, carnivorous lizardmen, and scissor-wielding wraiths in a series of responsive, fully realized environments, such as dilapidated courtyards, hanging gardens, twisted mirror realities, ghost ships, and caves.

Product Description

The new, must-have game for PlayStation 2, Devil May Cry is filled with stylish, action-oriented game play. You're on a mission to eliminate enemy monsters, fight bosses and collect as many red orbs as you can. But you better play with style, because your performance is being graded. The better you play the more new items and moves you get before each mission. Imported.

5.0 out of 5 stars Worth the Embarassment December 12, 2003
Format:Video Game
I think I've mentioned elsewhere that I'm not much of an action gamer, preferring RPGs instead. I do like to try out games in other genre, and Devil May Cry has certainly been the recipient of much critical (and enthusiast acclaim). With the price being as attractive as it is I decided that this would be my semi-annual dip into the world of compulsive destruction.
The story is straightforward. Girl drives into occult detective's office, stabs him with his own sword, then asks for his help in fighting the underworld. It seems that a BIG evil is planning to take over the earth and has set up shop in a castle on Malay Island. Dante, by the way, is the son of the demon knight who originally defeated this particular BIG evil. So revenge is also on the menu.
What ensues is a mad dash through a gothic nightmare that augments normal castle architecture with jungles, ships, airplanes, outer space, and, of course, hell. [I guess the story wasn't so straightforward after all] All of this is an excuse for some of the most detailed graphics that I have ever seen.
The animation is of such high quality that you can't always tell where a cut scene ends and the action starts again. And, lest I forget, an array of weapons, gadgets, and puzzles that kept me busy from start to finish. Very little was spared in making this a spectacular playing experience.
My only complaints aren't about the game, but my own mediocre skills. While I'm not exactly arthritic, my ability to deftly poke and stroke my controller is substandard. And Devil May Cry is a game that requires both pinpoint accuracy and good timing. Which means that the twelve hours of play that ended with me stumbling into the finale did nothing for my self-esteem. But if you have two thumbs (instead of ten) you will find this a delightful pastime - a must play, should own game.

5.0 out of 5 stars The reinvention of Action/Horror December 10, 2001
Format:Video Game
This game is like Resident Evil, only "cool". You're finally given a character that can walk and chew gum at the same time! Seriously, the range of movement you are given is remarkable, and the ability to lock onto an enemy to attack while you move is a long overdue addition to the genre. The graphics and animations are excellent and combine to form a great atmosphere for the game. There are plenty of weapons and items to obtain throughout your adventure, but to get the most out of the game, you'll want to stick to your twin guns and sword. There is little else in gaming to compare to lifting a demon off the ground with your sword, then switching to guns and keep him floating up in the air until he explodes, with both guns blazing. This is the epitomy of "cool". There are plenty of extra hidden missions and side goals to keep you coming back for more, long after you beat it. This game is reminiscent of thumb-blistering, action-packed games of old, such as Contra and Life Force, and as such, is an instant classic.

5.0 out of 5 stars simply well made...one of the true greats. August 29, 2001
Format:Video Game
"they don't make 'em like they used to"...wait! devil
may cry is the industry's answer to that challenge.
"but how do you know that? the game isn't out yet!"
for the few that don't know this already, it's out
in japan, and about 90 percent of japanese games are
in english, with japanese subtitles, of course. rest
assured...this review is based on the full game.
you have to hand it to capcom...making engaging games
is in their genes! take a look at some of the finer
points:
PROS
-graphics- you know, we hear way too much about
graphics these days. back in the day graphics sold
games, but not so anymore. we gamers have "grown
up" we're smarter now...gameplay makes a game. so
why mention graphics? well, the fact of the matter is
graphics do matter. they help devolop atmosphere.
now, many times i've been guilty of taking graphics for
granted, but wait until you get a load of this game in
action! it's as if the ps2 were made for this game
alone. and the graphics do not tax the gameplay one
bit. you'll fight off as many enemies as the game
feels it's capable of cramming onto the screen at any
given time, all high poly with no slowdown...awesome.
-music- i'm a stickler for the audio department, but
capcom seldom lets me down. resident evil-esque music
haunts you, until enemies pop up. the music gets
intense and sets the mood perfectly. the sound effects
and general ambience are outstanding as well. the
atmosphere permeates from this one as grass ruffles and
guns scream out their blasts. superb!
-gameplay- "okay, so it looks and sounds great...so do
so many flops now-a-days.

5.0 out of 5 stars NES style for a new generation November 18, 2001
Format:Video Game
Devil May Cry is not about it's length, it's variety of monsters, or it's story. It's about good ol' fashioned "killing stuff". In this regard, the game excels, and shouldn't be considered as anything else.
About the killing stuff...in Devil May Cry, it's frenetic. When you're attacked, it's not simply by one or two enemies, but in droves. Luckily for you, Capcom has armed you to the teeth. The fighting system is a combination of sword and gunplay which blend together seemlessly. Link together a couple of sword blows as a combo, uppercut your foe into the air, and then finish him by blasting his corpse to pieces before it hits the ground with one seemless motion. Devil May Cry actually rewards you for the style and variety you put into mixing sword and gun attacks. The action is very fast paced and will instantly remind you of old school classics such as COntra and Mega Man.
The graphics are incredible in Devil May Cry. Dante and his adversaries look great and animate well; the backgrounds are awesome. One caveat that some may have is that the camera angles are fixed, a la Resident Evil (the game was originally intended to be an RE game). While the camera tends to behave nicely, there are some instances when it can become a real chore, especially during the boss fights. The sound is also awesome. From the cheesy guitar riffs to the blast of your dual pistols -- it all works and comes together.
A complaint many have with this game is its length. Indeed, the game is undeniably short. However, the time you do spend with this game is unforgettable, good fun. Metal Gear Solid (Playstation) was also a very short game, but this didn't stop the public from deeming it "best playstation game ever", and Devil May Cry works along similar lines.

A full feature game for only a few dollars is quite a steal. The disc came in a generic envelop however, so it would've been nicer to get the actual case. Still was a great deal.
