"DMC3 is a highlight of the series. However, this PC version suffers from early porting atrocities. Seek out the widescreen fix and style-switcher mods."

Great game, terrible port. In fact, this port is so bad it's one of the only instances I would recommend playing it on console over PC, or emulate it if you can't do that. It doesn't support many controllers without a mod and it has known performance issues. I would highly recommend getting it, but not for PC.

I wanna be the very best like no one ever was
To S Rank is my real test
To play Dante like a baws

I will travel across this town
Cut a demon open wide
Each Devil Arm to understand
The power that's inside

DMC, (gotta S them all) its just Dante
And Vergil but he's just lame
DMC, oh, he's Dante's kin
Destroys the world Dante defends

DMC, (gotta S them all) and yes it's true
I beat it on PC too
Buy this game or I'll hate you
D-M-C, gotta S them all
Gotta S them all
DMC

This is the worst port that has ever been ported.

An absolute shame.

Great game in the DMC franchise but horrible ♥♥♥ port.

This port is so bad, the soundtrack playing in the background ACTUALLY causes the game to lag!
If you are going to buy the PC version of DMC3, be prepared to configure the game files for a more enjoyable experience!.

I'd highly recommend playing the PS3 / Xbox 360 versions that are included in the Devil May Cry HD Collection instead or the PS2 versions of DMC3 as this game is an absolute masterpiece despite how notoriously difficult it is.

Devil May Cry Special Edition... only one game is better and that is the orignal Devil May Cry. Man I wish that that orignal wasn't soully for the Playstation 2. So I settled for second best, this one. What about Devil May Cry 2 you cry? Yea? What about it? It strayed from the formula that made the first AWESOME! and Devil May Cry 3 came right back to it. With this port though you are definitely going to have to tweek the controls to match the playstation controller to the one on the PC but once you get past that headack, let the fun begin! I usually don't like overly challenging games but this series changed my mind for it. Who doesn't like hacking and slashing while jumping about and then BLAM! you whip out dual guns and start wailing on everything!?! This game wasn't just mindless shooting and slashing either, all the enemies had specific weakness that if you didn't exploit left you working twice as long and frantic to put them down. This game doesn't mind overwelming you either if you start to get careless and charge into the middle of a group of enemies because as bad as you are in this game, stupid dies quickly. The graphics in this game, granted dated by Playstation 2 standards still look awesome today and the sound track didn't change at all and this game has killer tracks to match the killer attitude in this game. Devil May Cry? If he watched this game, he's definitely grinning in all of us.
