Devil May Cry - Greatest Action Game ever?

Unread post by james-skarz » August 26th, 2007, 6:11 am

Ok...to get things straight i am a HUGE DMC Fan...I went so far as to order the Revoltech action figure of him and to scour shelves for DMC1 (without luck) and 3:SE (I ended up stealing it from my friend for awhile), and I currently am trying to bargain with my local Blockbuster on letting me keep their copy of DMC3 xD.

I am not that good...fairly normal at it (DMC3 that is)... My idol is Tatsumarublack, his [best] video's in this post..

But moving on, I love the highly sarcastic yet down to business character of Dante, and his ever-growing harem :P. I agree that you can nearly beat the whole of DMC2 with Eb n' Ivory, and I think that DMC1 should have a PS3 re-make, and I (like many) hope that DMC5 will have us able to play the full cast of DMC (Dante [DMC1 + 3 Versions, Vergil, Sparda, Trish, Lady, Arkham and Nero if he's not a fag), or even Versus (God I wish there was a 'DMC Smash Bros') I know this is a huge post but cmon...DMC owns... If you haven't played it than you are either blind or don't have a PS2.

Actually moving on now...I think it's time for a poll! If you bothered with reading this whole post thank you (i don't think it's that long) and yeah...vote in the poll and prove I'm populer :D

P.S Since when does a 3rd Party Developer in a game get their characters a cameo? (Hinting to why the hell Solid Snake is in Super Smash Bros. Brawl...Yes its awesome he's in it but honestly...3rd party wtf's going on there?)

yeah, true that dmc's one of the best action game ever...
why don't you try dmc4 on ps3 then? I heard it's worth trying :P

note: I think vergil's damn sight nicer that dante... :lol:

I played DMC3 and was quite disappointed. Voices sucked, graphics were sub-par, cameras weren't great, and the storyline was not engaging like some of the other 3rd person games like say prince of persia or the legacy of kain series.

Oh and having to play a Sephy clone reeks of complete and utter fail. Sorry.

The answer is no. It's alright, but certainly not the best.

Dunno the specifics, but it was something along the lines of "in one point in history, Snake was part Nintendo...".

And can't back you up, my friend. I'm not a PS fan of sorts, and I've only played DMC3. It was an okay game, but it takes quite some time to get the hang of if you really want to play correctly. Factors I didn't have since I was playing at a friend's house at the time.

But I guess I liked the soundtrack at some points. XD.

I'm kinda hard pressed to choose between which is better between DMC, GoW and Ninja Gaiden. They're all pretty damn good, but most badass would be Ryu followed by Dante...

Heh...Agreed, DMC isn't the best (even though I say otherwise at times :P) but i wish it was. I guess it fails the most in Pick up n play...So I agree too that God Of War is duking it out with DMC at the moment, i should've made a poll for that but (and no offence in any way to anyone) I just can't really love God Of War as much as DMC probably because of Kratos - He's the most powerful, kick-ass, no-mercy kinda guy you love. But I guess i'm not a fan of baldies.. I mean, when compared to Dante who taunts and angers nearly all of the bosses in Devil May Cry 3 and brushes off being stabbed at the start of the game - On a coolness factor I'd take Dante, but I'm not about to start a war over the two, because God Of War lived upto the name of something with the word 'god' in it.

By the way, i don't know whether the 'sephi-clone' reference was for Dante or Vergil...but Sephiroth was just a hard-ass, and FF7 stole the idea of Sephi-clones with Advent Children. :)

If you're still convinced the Devils are Sephi-clones then (and this is fact) Devil May Cry (the first) was originally going to be a new Resident Evil game (good series IMO :P), but it eventually branched out so completely in terms of gameplay that the original producer of DMC made a brand new game, franchise and so on and so forth. It's on wikipedia, and this also explains why Dante's pistols have 'For Tony Redgrave' on them, because that was going to be his name in the new RE before it became DMC.

I post LONG! ^_^

Lets just agree that both god of war and dmc kick major arse.

But i prefer god of war over dmc just because as u said it is more of a pick up and play game plus Kratos's attitude is just too cool and who doesnt love a god old traditional greece setting

If it looks like a sephy, smells like a sephy, and acts like a sephy, then it is indeed a sephy. Dante is a sephy clone, but that's not the only reason why the game is not good. Cameras, graphics, gameplay, storyline...none of them are particularly good or engaging

They're good enough though. I only played the pc version of 3 since i have no ps2, but it was good enough to like the series. Vergil is awesome.

Mercenaries FTW. Seriously, if you haven't tried this game, it's a must, even if it doesn't become your favorite.
