A terrible port for such a good game. Do yourself a favor and buy the HD collection on the consoles... Nuff said.

Trust me, don't get it; even after mods and fixes the game still slows down considerably in combat, which shouldn't even be a thing for such an old game on my PC

I love Devil May Cry 3 and 4, so I snagged this during the big Steam Sale.

I was extremely disappointed to find out that upon starting the game, (which is super tiny by default) despite mashing every key on my keyboard, clicking on the window and hitting every button on my controller, You can NOT skip the intro cutscene.

I also can not close this game out without bringing up my Task Manager which is fun.

The default controls for my gamepad are completely screwed up and totally backwards from the original scheme.

without even going into the game itself, this is one of the most poorly handled ports I've ever seen to the point where it's literally UNPLAYABLE.

Avoid this at all costs and buy DMC4 Special Edition instead.

NOTICE : THIS REVIEW CONTAINS A CONDITIONAL RECOMMENDATION, THOUGH IS OVERALL NOT RECOMMENDED.

Devil May Cry 3 is a legendary title that defines it's genre. However, the PC port is completely broken, and in it's vanilla state is unplayable. It's a real shame that Capcom has neglected to fix this port or supply some sort of alternative for those who don't have a console or wish to play the game on PC. Devil May Cry 4 has one of the best console ports around, but Devil May Cry 3 might just be one of the worst. For those who have never played DMC3 and wish to, I highly recommend finding another way to play the game, as this version just isn't the way to do it, no matter what you do to it. Now, for those of you who have played DMC3 countless times, and perhaps are fond of DMC4 Dante's style switcher, this version does yield a bit of potential for you. This game can be modded and cleaned up a bit to work a lot better, though still no where near an ideal performance, and also include Dante's style switching mechanic from DMC4 in it. I'd like to stress though, that this is not the way the game was intended to be played, and using the mod does break the challenge of the game somewhat, so like I said earlier, for those of you who have yet to experience DMC3, I highly recommend you avoid this version and play a console port. For those of you who are interested in playing with the possibilites of this port, I'll include a link to the guide showing you how to fix this port up. To sum everything up though, for those of you yet to play this game, do not buy this, play a better version. For those of you like me who have played DMC3 to death and want to play around with it in new ways, grab this when it's cheap, and apply mods to fix it. This is in no way a replacement or the definitive version of Devil May Cry 3, and Capcom really should give us a better port on PC.

They want £15.99 for this. £15.99 for a game without an exit option. £15.99 without control pad support - for a game dependent on a control pad. £15.99 for a game labeled "special" - inferior to the base vesion.

£15.99 to get kicked in the teeth.

It's a good game but one of the worst ports I've ever played. If you've got 20 bucks to spare and you want to buy this game go buy it on psn, get a ps2 copy on amazon, or just emulate it and save your money.

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/
