By Tsanche VINE VOICE on January 28, 2006
Platform for Display: PlayStation2Edition: Special
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.

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.

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

DIFFICULTY: Hard

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.
