Do you remember the hair-raising chills that crawled up your spine the first time you descended into the hellish world of Devil May Cry? Do you remember the heart-pounding anticipation as you cracked open the next chapters in Devil May Cry 2 and Devil May Cry 3: Dante's Awakening? The excitement, the horror and the intrigue that first sucked you in to Dante's underworld journey are yours to truly re-experience as the gaming world's most haunting franchise comes to full high-definition for the first time.
A Total Steal!
Pros: 3 games in 1. Classic PS2 games all upscaled to 720p (HD). Devil May Cry 3 is the Special Edition version.
Cons: Devil May Cry 2 is only a con because it has never been a great DMC game. It looks fantastic as an HD upscale, though, and plays exactly as it always has.
Other Thoughts: For the price of less than one brand new game, you get 3 classic PS2 era games that are timeless. You can't hope to find a better deal on any game, considering the replay value (100's of hours).

Pros: Three games on 1 disc - the original 2 classics included. Great games for a great price and convenient for the 1 disc solution.

Still the Best Action Games of the Generation
Pros: The ports are really solid. I had some concerns after reading about the problems with other HD collectiosn recently, like the Silent Hill HD Collection. Visuals are crisp and clean, and the games look excellent considering their age. DMC1's textures hold up surprisingly well (shows how far good art direction can go) aside from the pixelated skybox or so. DMC3 looks absolutely gorgeous. They added some anti-aliasing, and the motion capture looks impressive even by today's standards.
Cons: DMC2 is a throwaway title. It always has been.
Other Thoughts: Every once in a while, a title comes along that re-defines the future of gaming. It's a turning point in game development, and spawns hundreds of budget clones that try to cash in while it's hot. In 2001, DMC was one of those games. It single-handedly invented the action game genre as we know it. DMC3 invented true Stylish Action- with weapon switching, evasive maneuvers, and over-the-top powers.
