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.

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

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.

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.

More mods can be found here:


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/

For anyone using Windows 10 that experiences problems, refer to this guide:

D - Difficulty - It is well balanced , its little bit hard for the first time but can be beaten with practice , patience , efficient weapon/style uasage and learning enemy moveset . You need to be extremely good for higher difficulty levels . After all video games need to be challenging , they are more fun that way . DA was tougher than SE .

C - Combat - ♥♥♥♥in amazing , its so much fun to hurl enemies into air , use them as a skateboard , mixing devil arms and melee weapons in the combat and beat the ♥♥♥♥ out of enemies . Style play promotes chaining of combos . Use of different styles , different weapons and devil arms brings variety in combat and gives fresh and fantastic experience . They just nailed it in this department , style switcher mod for pc takes it to next level . There so many brilliant combo videos on youtube and all are amazing .

B - Boss Fights - Boss fights are simply outstanding . Agni&Rudra , Nevan , Beowulf , Dante's shadow , Vergil fights etc ( one of the best boss ever ) all are amazing . No cutscene , qte ♥♥♥♥ just pure dope gameplay . You have to learn their moves and fight effectively . Bosses are designed well too and give sense of achievement after beating them . Normal enemies are not that great and not that bad and there is a room for improvement . Loved vergil's and doppelganger's taunts .

A - Action - Right in your face intense action . Amazing combat , style play and hordes of enemies keep the action going on . Few puzzles are here and there which save your fingers from getting sore . DMC3 is all about cool & stylish moves/action . DMC3 is one of the best action games ever made .

S- Story - Pretty straightforward story , DMC3 focuses more on action/combat and this what i expect from a action game . Minimal story and loads of gameplay . Cutscenes are top notch and action packed esp. when dante gets devil trigger . Vergil & The Lady cutscenes are equally epic .

SS - Sick Soundtrack - Battle theme pumps you up and with metal in the background and action going on the screen , one can never go wrong . Metal + action games combo gives birth to amazing gaming experience . Battle theme do get repetitve and sometimes it gets irritating . Vergil 3 and doppelganger themes are great . Last but not the least , just listen to Devils never cry . So ♥♥♥♥in gooooood

SSS - SonS of Sparda - Both Dante and vergil are fantstic characters , esp. Dante . Their chemistry is so interesting , both are twins but completely opposite to each other and whenever they interact its fun watch them . Dante is such a badass character with bring it on attitude and vergil on the other hand calm and more deadly foe .Their design is pretty great too with old school red vs blue touch . No words to describe the battles between them , play it and experience it . Unarguably one of the best combination and boss fight . Rarely you have a opponent who is equally as powerful as you and defeats you . Being your own brother makes things more heated up( only in game :P )

Pc port is bad but can be fixed easliy with few fixes , thanks to modding community . Replay value is great with playable vergil , bloody palce mode and ofcourse trying different styles and maximizing them .

Masterpiece 9.9/10

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.

Last and Final Warning... DO NOT BUY!!!!!(Fixes for this game are at the bottom of the review. Click on the link) DO NOT GET ON PC!!!! Get the HD Collection on PS3 or Xbox 360 instead. This Game is an AMAZING Game. However, the PC Port of this game is HORRIBLE!!!!! the controlls don't work right and you have to do a ton of unecessary fixes just to have some functionality, not even full functionality. and the resolution is about the same resolution as the original PS2 game so it will not play in HD or in any wide aspact ratio. This is a total waste of your hard earned money. your better off getting the "Devil May Cry HD Collection" on PS3 or Xbox 360 where u get the first 3 original DMC games including this one, the controls flow like you where born to play this game, and the resolution is FULL HD! now that is a WAY BETTER buy then this PC version piece of crap. keep in mind that DMC 4 and DMC:Devil May Cry (Remake) works amazing on PC so just becuase this one sucks on PC doesn't mean the other 2 on pc are bad as well. I would recommend DMC 4, and DMC Reamake over this game aswell. Have fun with those other DMC Games. :)

I HAVE AMAZING NEWS!!! this link at the bottom of the review will help you fix every single problem this game can dish out! :D. it's in the steam forums. if you really want this game, than you have to see this link. This link will give you everything! how to get full controller functionality, get the proper resolution in game in full screen, and more. this is highly recomended for more advance computer users so, be warned, some of this fixes for some people aren't easy but for most it should be a piece of cake ;) have fun!

This game is quite broken on Steam, at least for me. There does not appear to be any controller support at all, not for the Steam Controller anyway. This is a shame because I am a die-hard fan of the Devil May Cry series, and Devil May Cry 4 and DmC: Devil May Cry work absolutely fine for me on Steam.

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.
