Do not bother with this game for many reasons

1. this game will most likely not suppot your controller
2. using things like joy 2 key to bypass it is herendous
3. you would be best of getting it for a system
4. it can't even go full sreen.......

this is a great game and all but i can't recommened it for a computer

I don't recommend this to anyone who uses a PS3 controller or any controller for that matter because this game forces you to play on legacy south paw controls but if you're on mouse and keyboard I recommend this game

It's a shame one of the best hack'n'slash games ever got the ♥♥♥♥♥♥ port treatment. My game won't even launch now, and I bought this piece of ♥♥♥♥ about a year ago. Keep away, play it on Playstation or an emulator. It's not worth modding it just to make it work.

Control sucks. Screen sucks. Fixing settings. Can't exit game. Buy a steam controller and it works fine. Meaning spend 50 more bucks for the controllers or your own Xbox controller to experience the awesome game. Capcom a.k.a caps on..... Needs o fix this game. I wonder why it's 5 bucks. Sure it's a gr8 game but still needs a lot of fixes. Bring back the dante games but rather or modern graphics and better fighting styles and more weps. Also make bayonetta be part of the games as well. Please capcom SAMA you have gaben-San now.

This port is horrible.
Devil may cry 3 is a good game but , oh boy the outdated steam port.
-Dont support xbox 360 controller.
-Audio bug issues.
-FPS drop issues.
-Play with 1400x1050 screen (MAX).

There are reviews saying "install a mod to get better experience." But i really recomend you: "Get a emulator."

Good game. Bad Port. Just use an emulator instead and you save a lot of trouble.

This PC port's getting CRAZY! Let's refund!


But honestly, despite the widespread negativity for the PC version of Devil May Cry 3, I still decided to check it out and see if i could still get a good experience with some tweaking... man i sure am a naive ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥. Today (when review was posted) is the first time I've played a DMC game excluding getting the 2013 reboot free on PS3. Shame, because i honestly had a blast with the first 2 levels despite the awkward camera and clucky gamepad setup i had. At least i can still go with the HD Collection on PS3.

Even tho port is quite bad, you can still easily enjoy the game
Game requires skill and thinking at some points, but mostly skill
And Vergils gameplay is like easy mode all the time once you unlock all skills and train yourself to rapidly tap gunfire button while preforming combos
10/10

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/

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
