Devil May Cry

Devil May Cry: A great game, with some minor annoyances.

The good:
The graphics hold up quite well, even amongst later games, they convay a dark, creepy atmosphere, almost like Resident Evil.
This game has the coolest cutscenes I have seen.

The sound track is amazing, it goes from soft music that builds tension, to high speed hardcore rock

The story and characters are compelling, Dante is the best anti-hero since Alucard from Castlevania: Symphony of the Night.

The gameplay requires exploring, and high speed, high intensity fighting, and the infinite supply of ammo is nice.

As far as replay value goes, you unlock more difficulty settings with each completion of the game, an extra character to play as, and a mode with constant Devil Trigger(a powered up state where speed and strength are immensly increased)

The bad:
The fixed camera is annoying, as it sometimes shifts in such a manner that Dante gets turned around if you don't change the direction you are holding.

If you die and run out of continues, you don't start from the last place where you saved, you restart the mission.

Re: Devil May Cry

I just didn't like this game for some reason. I know it's really popular but I just couldn't get into it. I don't like Dante and I don't like the gameplay. Not to rain on your review I'm just giving you a counter point

Re: Devil May Cry

I like the anime, but never played the game. Is it similar to the anime?

Thanks for the counterpoint, as all I have heard about it is good, and usually fanboy-ish to the extreme. Btw, what does 'Tilt' Mean.

Re: Devil May Cry

The anime IS GREAT. You should.

Tilt means Adverage score. What you rate it overall.

I'll look into the anime.
Thanks for explaining tilt, as a matter of fact, I should add it in.
Sorry for the correction.
