Several thousand years have passed since the demon warrior Sparda raised his sword against the unholy world to save the human race. Victorious and assured that evil forces had been confined, Sparda joined mankind and fathered Dante, a half human-half demon son infused with the power of a supernatural lineage. However, Dante was not the only son Sparda had sired. As devoted as Dante was to defeating the forces of evil, his twin brother, Vergil, was consumed by power and upheld the legacy of his sinister ancestors. One moonlit night, a mysterious tower materialized beside Dante's "Devil May Cry" investigative agency. On the rooftop stood his brother along with his inhuman minions goading Dante into a confrontation.
Devil May Cry 3 unfolds an earlier chapter in Dante's history, before the original Devil May Cry, to the fateful clash between Sparda's twin sons, divided by the divergence of their chosen paths. Along the way, Dante encounters formidable foes and unusual characters including a mysterious man named Arkham and a female hunter named Lady whose mission is to take down all demons, including Dante. These precursory events disclose the complex roots of Dante's character and reveal insight into his clouded past.
Devil May Cry 3 preserves the fast-paced action that has made the series so popular. In addition to its strong roots, the game increases the intensity of gameplay with a new "style" system, which adds an additional level of depth. Depending on preference, players can choose to use short-range, long-range, defensive or evasive play styles. Each system has its own range of gameplay features and players can choose to power up their favorite style for increased special attack abilities. The range of options available in Devil May Cry 3 immerses players in a non-stop, thrilling escapade.
  • New playable character - play as Dante's evil twin brother, Vergil, with his own unique "Dark Slayer" fighting style
  • New "Jester" enemy - previously featured only in cut scenes, Jester has been implemented as a new boss character
  • Turbo Option - this new feature boosts the game speed by 20%
  • Two continue system options
  • Adjusted difficulty levels offer more balanced gameplay as players choose from five options including a new Very Hard mode
  • Bloody Palace Mode - Dante is pitted against an onslaught of enemies in this survival mode
  • Movie Mode - Unlocked cut scenes can be viewed either one at a time or all in a row

This is a great game that is really easy to get into. As I had never played a Devil May Cry game before I was sceptical about buying it but my fears were put to rest after the first few minutes of play. I would recommend this to any gamer.

Devil may cry 3 is without a doubt an amazing game! It's a shame that devil may cry 2 was so bad, but this one certainly does it's best to make up it.

As a prequel, Dante is a young man, who is just starting his business. He hasn't found a name for it yet either. The game shows how he eventually unleashes the power inside himself, and not to mention, how he finds the name for his business.

In Devil may cry 2, Dante is extremely boring, and hardly even speaks. In this game, however, Dante is fun-loving, entertaining, and makes very witty comments and he talks to enemies.

So they've done well with the character development. This is Dante at his best! But what about gameplay?

The game itself was well thought out - you can change different styles to whatever you prefer, which adds a touch of unique to his moves, and the way you play the game. It's unfortunate, though, that you can't switch through each style during the missions. In fact, you can only switch styles before you start the mission, or when you see the time god statue. Usually though, You'll find a style that you prefer, and keep to it.

The camera angles in this game allow you a bit more freedom than both dmc1, and 2. as you can take control of it. However, your camera angle will only allow limited movement, which can sometimes make it difficult to see certain things, however, some camera movement is certainly better than none whatsoever.

The story-line of the game is really something to behold, as it seems to piece together what we already know, but don't know how it got there. In other words it puts certain parts of the puzzle together, and we can finally see the full picture.

In the special edition of the game, you can also play as Vergil, Dante's sinister brother, who wants more power, and quickly becomes the focus of the game. If you'd rather play as Vergil first, instead of Dante, then you should get the special edition, rather than the normal DMC3 since in the normal version you can't play as him straight away.

One thing that certainly worth mentioning, is that the devil may cry series has always gone out of it's way to make things a little harder than the usual game, games in general now seem to hold your hand throughout. Devil May Cry 3 however, is not easy. when you play in the normal mode, don't expect things to tell you how they're done, or for the enemies take a hit and die. In fact, DMC3 was purposely made a lot harder than even the first and second. So if you've not played this before, then don't expect it to be a walk in the park.

Overall this game is packed with fairly awesome moves, and great story-line and some of the best character development around. If you're planning to play the series , either for the first time, or a second time, it might be best to play this game, then the first, then the recently released fourth.

Similarly to the previous games, I'd expect this game to soon stop being made, if it hasn't already. So it's best, if you want this game, you should buy it now... A great game, for a great price. because if like the first game, it becomes to get harder to find, the price will start to go up.

5 stars all round!

Best in the series! A total MUST BUY! Doesnt let up on the action or the storyline, but dont be fooled by the walkthrough, some of the boss fights aren't THAT hard!

 A return to form as good as the 1st one maybe better!

The Special Edition of Devil May Cry 3 is easier to complete then the original version as Capcom had to many gamers say they found it to hard. Myself be a gamer for over 20 years was able to complete both versions and I must say, that I found a game called Maximo by Capcom as well to be harder. Anyway alongside the 1st Devil May Cry game, God Of War 1 & 2, Resident Evil 4 and Onimusha 3 this is one of the best action adventure games money can buy for the PS2. The graphics, sound and level design are all of the highest standards.
