Well yeah the anime sucks. I dropped it, can't stand it anymore. Too much drama and no fighting.

Drama in an anime that is based on an action game? Well, definitely staying out of that one.

I saw a few videos of god of war, and it's awful
999,999 combo WTF?

And DMC3 has good graphics unless you're playing the pc version.

The coolest person is obviously Dante
His jokes are awesome.

OF DEATH I SAY!!!!

well, anyway, DMC isn't very good, i prefer Mercenaries style of Action gameplay, but i love the marionette enemy design, it's so freaky and cool.

Keeping an old topic upto speed, in my freaky love of DMC, I managed to beat DMC4's DH mode (Devil Hunter for all you non-DMC nerds :P) in a day...bought on Thursday beat on friday. HOWEVER, due to friggin' Yr 11 homework It's taking me one to two weeks to beat Son Of Sparda and go onto DMD mode, only about 3 more missions :P.

Criticising DMC4, I find the only problem with it being the redudant bosses. It's like Capcom decided to take a classic DMC boss, shit on it, add next gen and make it jump around the whole ring like some of the stupid bosses in the Mega Man series (like Aqua Man who did some random crap and jumped off the screen or sum crap). Seriously. Not to ruin the last boss - But he flew around the whole friggin time, and when you manage to actually be able to damage him he just flies away and fireballs you - and not in the cool hadouken way. In the DBZ type way, where you get shat on. *Yawn*

The following is spoil tagged (not only due to spoilers but also due to excessive ranting/swearing) but people who played through DMC4 at least once (and know what they're talking about will definitely agree with me here:

Looks like they didn't do a good job on some bosses in DMC4. I loved the bosses in DMC3 (Vergil is just too awesome). I don't have a ps3 and my pc's shit so I probably won't be getting it any time soon. As for the answer to the question in the thread title, yes it is the best action game in the ps2 generations, or that's what people say.

The last boss wasn't TOO hard to kill, you just gotta keep gliding =).
In case you didn't know (i know you probably do =P), you can blow those fireballs by shooting em with your gun.

Who's actually tried using Dante's almost-invulnerable armor? It's so kickass xD.

About the topic as well - I'd also have to agree. I never got too into DMC3, but 4 really grabbed my attention, after I figured out all of the boss-specific moves (the huge combos you can do on a boss once he's lost his shield, when he's down, etc). I personally think they really took a lot of time to think of a way to captivate the audience =)

To be rewarded with a special version of the song Pillow Talk after you beat DMC1 at dante must die have been my greatest game experience ever
DMC2 is barely worth mentioning
DMC3 was a great game, nothing more.
DMC4 I have yet to play

And Dante makes it all worthwhile =p

DMC2 is so much of a disgrace to DMC series it's not even funny. Also, according to screw attack, it "sucked balls".

Yeah, Capcom basically tells people who ask about it to pretend DMC2 never happened.

Anyway, for a next-gen I felt that this was a good effort but if they were going to make a sequel... they are going to need to HAUL ass in its development. I'm not talking about the graphics, but its the game designs that needs to be worked on.

oh and

God of War sucks *runs away*

*but before he runs away*

I'm going to have to acknowledge that god of war is a very consistently great game, but as far as game fighting mechanics go:

DMC owns over God of War...and maybe Ninja Gaiden to a certain extent.

DMC 3 is very fun to play, I think DMC 3 is one of the best action games for ps2, but i?m in doubt wich is better GOW 1 or DMC 3
