Buying this will essentially give you a HD version for 3 of the Devil May Cry games; Devil May Cry, Devil May Cry 2, and Devil May Cry 3 Special Edition. These have been already remaster on the earlier PS3 and XBOX 360, how is it different?
Rather than breaking each game down, I am going to do it as a bundle and the reason why is; nothing has changed besides the resolution of the games. Playing each one, enjoying the story for what it is because I am a DMC fan was great but I did not come near finishing any of them, maybe half way, if that. The truth is, we have come to expect a lot from Remastered games and I feel like Capcom just needed a release and ported the exact version from PS3 and XBOX 360. The characters are crisp and clean, is this their best work? Probably not. In fact, some cut scenes aren’t even remastered to widescreen, menus haven’t been correctly set to 16:9, and some are still 4:3.
So I guess you can say, “Well Dennis, this isn’t a complete remaster, this is just an HD collection with 60FPS capability”. Well, then I say to you, is 60FPS capable HD remaster worth R469, even when you could grab an older copy for next to nothing.
Could they have done better? It felt like the game was still based on the old controls from previous generations, with the exception of DMC 3. The game felt first generation, not even last gen. Perhaps they could have given us some new content, with additions like side quests.
