It's a great game on the PS2, but sadly not on PC.

This is a terrible port because it has terrible controls without a controller. I would, however, recommend this game if you are confident your controller will work with this game. I have a logitech controller and the camera and movement sticks are reversed, and there is no way to change it. It makes the game pretty much unplayable for me at least.

It's hard to learn the controls in game because they teach you how to do them by saying press "button 1", but your "button 1" might be "i" or something, so it's hard to remember what keys you've bound.

Horrible and strange resolution options, almost no gamepad support either, the game defaults the right analog stick to movement and there are no customization options. Unless you want to spend time fiddling around with external programs to make the game playable I suggest you stay away from this port, you're better off with an emulator.
Not even worth the dollar I paid for it.

I love this game, run smoothly on my pc...

A lot of negatives for the controller I see here but not a problem for me I'm a humble keyboard guy.

I wish the release dmc and dmc 2 on pc as a bundle.

The history is interesting and the gameplay is simplistic, i like it.

No native fullHD is a pain but i found a patch for it, simple.

To expensive don't worth the price, wait for a sale or better yet a bundle sale.

Recommend because i like it and no problems whatsoever but 9.99 would be fine 19.99 no just no.

Why the hell the Special Edition adds only a vergil Skin and not it's own campaign, are you kidding me.

This game is hard until you get some health upgrades but it's fun and you get to look cool while killing demons.

I would recommend the game A LOT. The game itself is amazing and I grew up with it. However, I would not purchase steam's version due to the fact that the analog sticks are switched around and is completely unchangable. Unless you want to play with your hands crossing over one another, by all means do whatcha gotta do. Also, Fullscreen gameplay would be nice.

The world's best action game has the worst PC port ever made. After fixing the controls and the framerate DMC3 is a solid 9/10.

This is a great game, but the PC port is shackled with uncustomizable controls and audio/visual technical issues. You can't have sloppy controls in Devil May Cry. It ruins the satisfying feel of the game, and makes it difficult for the wrong reasons. Do not buy this port at any price, track down a console copy because this is not a finished product.

Devil May Cry 3 is a great game! This is only a critisism of this port!

As a PC only gamer, I've played some REALLY bad PC ports. I mean, really, really, REALLY bad ports. But this game....oh my god...I have to buy the PS2 version to play it properly. I bought it for 5€ at the Summer Sale, but it's still not worth the money.

This is the best hack and slash game ever created. Devil May Cry 4 has the best combat in a hack and slash game ever created but the game wasn't as good as this one.

This is a terrible PC port of a classic PS2 game. The game isn't perfect but it's pretty great. The PC port is, however, garbage and nearly unplayable. Find it on eBay or buy the HD collection. Stay away from this terrible PC port.
