This is an absolute must play for any and all DMC fans, especially those of us who grew up with the franchise. These games bring back a lot of fond memories of staying up late with friends from HS trying to beat that next level... the old times before online competitive play, when single player games still ruled, and you would switch turns between deaths.

On top of that, we have the return of the classic stories, and with the addition of DMC4, we now have the complete saga of Dante on one system. A chronology as confusing as can be, lol. To play these to full effect, I recommend playing them in order... not of release, but as they take place... but the requires you grab DMC4, as well. The order is as follows:

DMC3 > DMC > DMC4 > DMC2

This is, of course, becasue DMC3 is a prequel, and DMC2 is the final confrontation with the Devil (which is still one of my favorite boss fights of all time).

At any rate, I can't say enough good about these games, and this new HD transfer is just wonderful. My only complaint about it would be that they did not (could not?) render the actual FMV sequences in HD, and thus the games go in and out from full widescreen storytelling in HD to boxed 4:3 FMVs in SD... but such is only a minor inconvenience.

This is absolutely recommended to any and all DMC fans. Its sure to hold us off, at least until the reboot comes out later this year. Happy gunning!

I've been wanting to play through these DMC's again and this copy makes all of that possible. This is a must have if you're a DMC fan. All I can say is great! I also can see the parts they re-mastered and the parts they didn't which is fine. Don't let that hold you back...

And for those few people giving this a negative review are probably people who never played single player games on ps1 or ps2. I mean by now everyone should know this isn't going to have ps3/xbox360 graphics so why give it a bad review because of that?? If you never been a fan of any of them why get it and give it a bad review?? If you never played any of these before and you're used to playing games from this era, still it doesn't deserve to be called a terrible game. The only thing I can say is a problem are the camera angles sometimes.

Overall, not really expensive which is a plus and it's 3 games in one. Happy Gamming!!!
