Devil Made Me Cry

The King of Cool!

I was able to get my hands on a trial version of the upcoming game from Capcom, Devil May Cry 3. This is set to be released early next year but a trial version was released along with Resident Evil Outbreak: File #2 in Japan. And let me just say that this beta version literally blew my mind! The action was frantic and somehow, you really feel like you're in control of someone this cool! It has definitely changed a lot from DMC2 which was a disappointment in many ways. Although Dante's moves have improved from the first game, the story was almost non-existent and the difficulty setting felt like I could finish the game half-conscious. But DMC3 sure promises to be different this time. With the action entirely up to you, you are able to customize Dante's fighting style, you may choose from being a Trickster, a Swordsman, a Gunslinger and a Royal Guard. The first 3 styles are pretty obvious, it all depends on how you want to play it. But the royal guard style (locked in the Trial version) seems vague so I don't know how that one plays. The coolest however is the gunslinger style. With this, you are able to shoot at one enemy while you control Dante's other gun with the left analog stick. Shooting at different directions. Cool! Anyway, this has only made me wabt to get the final game more. It's a shame it has been delayed to next year since I heard that the game just isn't ready yet. Anyway, looks like we'll have to wait some more.Posted by Hello
