Maybe the best in the series.

Why does it have so many negative reviews? You may ask.

Cause "Ubisoft" did a horrible job with the PC port.

The game is great. I played it before on console and it was very good. Now please make the Steam version actually work. Stop forcing to perform workarounds in order to have a normal playable version of the game

Its a really bad port runs worse then a emulator you cant full screen or at least I and other people cant with out spamming alt+enter and bad controler support. You need to actually fix the game youre self by going to sites most common things need fixing

-the music becuase for some reason the way they handled it the music makes the game run bad

-another thing to fix is the full screen so it actually goes to full screen by its self

-lastly fixing the contoler becuase it wont work with a 360 controler.

There may be more things that need fixing I think I heard theres some graphical bugs like no lightning and ect...

So my last thoughts are just play this on a console or emulate it Becuase it would be easyer and and better.

will they ever update or change the setting so that the left and right joystick doesnt get inverted for the movement? i hope it will, if not this game is just useless for me since i don't know how to change it. the game is good but it sucks with the controls.

This game is ♥♥♥♥ing fantastic ok the pc version does have some problems but if you take some time to fix them it's a realy enjoyabel game

The story is a prequel to the 1st geme wher Dante's brother Vergil whats to optain the power of there father Sparda is not the best but it does it job and i think it's good and also Dante is cool and not just normal cool he is super cool

The gamepley is realy good and a big inprovmet over DMC2's lack luster gameplay
Basecl Dante stil has his signiture Rebelion but from defeating bosses sometimes you get new wepons like Cerbures,Agni&Rudra,Nevan'Beowolf. Guns are also are also good but not to po like the whure in DMC2 Dante also has 4 new styles Trickster,Swordmaster,Gunslinger and Royalguard he also get's 2 bonus styles Quicksilver and Doppelganger
Ko now let me explain what each style does
1.Trickster alous Dante to preform faste doges by pressing the B butten it can also teleport you to enemys
2.Swordmaster Gives evry mailai wepen a secondeary attack
3.Gunslinger gives evry gun a secondary attack
4.Royalguard let you pery attack
5.Quicksilver slows down time
6.and doppelganger is prety self explanetory

The level disain is also realy good and whail it's all in the same casel it stil not dull or boring

The bosses are realy hard but never unfair (get gud) my favourit are the Vergil boss fights the 1st one is not that hard but the other to defenetly are

the music it good but i wish ther was a litel bit moer veraite

Overall 9/10

Brings out the days back when you play this on PS2,
I used a steam controller to play it, not recommended with using keyboard, your character will walk like a robot. Although there are some steam fixes on the controller you used and fullscreen mode, you can adjust yourself in-game and there will be no problem with it.

Press Alt + Enter for fullscreen.

Overall 6/10

Get this mod: http://www.nexusmods.com/devilmaycry3/mods/1/?

It is to DMC3SE what DSfix is to Dark Souls. It fixes the performance, controller and sound issues, making the PC version as solid as its console counterparts. In addition, the mod has options for on-the-fly style-switching, weapon-switching for all weapons, Doppelganger and Quicksilver styles for Vergil, Air Hike for every weapon, color saturation options, etc.

Devil May Cry 3 is still one of the best action games ever made, and this mod fixes every major issue with the PC port, and elevates the game to even greater heights.

Happy styling.

If you have controller issues, and installing the StyleSwitcher mod hasn't solved your problem, try downloading motioninjoy (http://motioninjoy.en.uptodown.com/) or xpadder.

If you still have problems, try asking for help here: http://s1.zetaboards.com/InfernalWorks/topic/5834079/1/

Best game in the series. Port is terrible, but can be easily remedied with this mod http://www.nexusmods.com/devilmaycry3/mods/1/?

If this game is on sale, it's a must own!

This is a good game. It's worth getting on Xbox 360 and PS3 as part of the HD collection. But this port is not worth it at all

I mean, the port is ♥♥♥♥ing trash, like, worse than Dark Souls 1 sort of trash, but it's DMC3.

To elaborate, it NEEDS a mod to function, but even with the mod you have to disable the music or it runs like trash and to top it all off it doesn't even look as good as the original, with broken lighting. It's a complete mess... but until a very much wanted HD collection comes to Steam, this is the DMC3 we get, but at least it's still ♥♥♥♥ing DMC3! One of the best games of all time.

Install the mod, stick on your favourite music and rock n' roll!



On a legit note don't buy it unless you really, really want to and it's super cheap.
