Devil May Cry HD Collection Review - STFUandPLAY

With the release of the recent DmC Devil May Cry let’s take a look back at the original three Devil May Cry games. (Devil May Cry HD Collection, PS3, Xbox 360) -

DMC 1 and 3 were what the franchise is all about. Playing through the HD collection brought back many good memories!

that was an enjoyable read. it was funny when you mention you turned off DMC2 at the first swing.

What I found surprising was that DMC2 had the better graphics overall.

I have the collection but have not started it yet, eventually I will.

It may have had better graphics, but the levels were boring compared to DMC1 and 3 IMO. Also, no DMC has matched the awesomeness of DMC1 Mundus fight. It was literally out of this world!
rezzah  +   1116d ago
It's hard to say if the Mundus fight was the best of the series. I mean each boss in DMC1 was enjoyable in their own way.

DMC3 had 1 lame boss (the worm), but everyone else was cool. The Virgil fights racked up more emotion in comparison to the fight with Mundus IMO. Therefore the boss battles with Virgil had more meaning, thus making each fight more enjoyable.

Lets not forget the second last boss in DMC3, fighting alongside Virgil was a very epic feeling. In fact this fight just might be the best because you fight with his brother. I remember my first time playing this part of the game, I literally didn't want it to end as soon as it did.

You are right, there was more emotion and story behind the Virgil fight, but when you meet Mundus and then see his true form and how the fight takes place over several locations and with 2 different gameplay styles, that style has never been redone in any DMC game. The flying shooting section, to the hack and slash, the the guns blazing section, going from battle to battle to fight one boss. It was an epic boss fight to an epic game and this is the but I think no other DMC has been able to recreate.

I'll say that the Mundus fight is biggest fight in term of its scale.

Also wasn't it 3 locations? Sky/space, Lava/ground, then the sewer section.

I agree with the changes in gameplay, no other boss in the series has required that much change from the regular style of playing.

DMC 1 and 3. Super cool.

Now for an Ominusha HD collection. Suck money balls there is no Ominusha this gen.
Mocat  +   1116d ago
Onimusha HD collection would mean that there would be a new Onimusha game, And do you really want Capcom to westernize those games, I don't.
I love Onimusha but just let Onimusha die in peace
