The game itself is very good. Although the port is unimaginably bad. With a lot of dedication and hard work it's possible to fix almost all the problems.

its 4am and i finally got this port to open and run properly, and playing devil may cry never felt more satisfying. its almost like kicking back 3 mugs of coffee to help you power through this migraine-indusing port was intentionally part of the experience, except it's totally not intentional at all

if you buy this port, expect to either spend a solid three hours fixing it, or to spend three hours trying to fixing it only for you to end up refunding it

you'll need this http://www.nexusmods.com/devilmaycry3/mods/1/?

brace for the worst but hope for the best

As a huge Devil May Cry fan, this game hold up the standards just as well as it's predecessors,
possibly even better (I'm looking at you DMC2).
From a general game perspective, it is a solid Hack and Slash game with memorable characters,
a simple but enjoyable story, and more importantly you get to beat the crap out of demons while being a total
badass. (Also it's pretty challenging so, if you don't like handholding- this is the game for you)

I've had and played this game for about 4 years now, and still love it dearly. (Although it only says 30 hours on Steam, I also played it a lot on PS3 later).
But recently I came to notice how low the Steam ratings for this game were, and I read through the reviews to see why.
From what I've seen, it's all in regards to the port itself, which is understandable.
I've personally never had a problem running the game on Steam (even without downloading patches or anything).

That said, I do think that the in-game references to the controls are complete jank, because they are based on a
numbering system for buttons that VERY unclear. This can be solved by a simple google search to see what each button
does. I don't think the frame-rate is optimal (especially for a hack and slash) but it's not unplayable,
I really didn't notice it all that much when I first got into the game, but only after I'd had my share of a variety
of hack and slash games and really came to know the genre, did I notice the difference.
I also never had a problem using a controller as the controller scheme menu is actually pretty easy to understand,
although customization is a bit annoying.

In summary:
I guess from my experience, I'd say the game is still worth is, especially during Steam Sales, assuming that you can run it.
Like I said, it is a bit jank here and there, and it's not an excellent port by any means, but if you are looking to have a
hack and slash game that's easy to run on most computers just to casually play whenever, this is the game for you.
