Welcome to Diary of a Hermit, a new column about games I should have played already, but haven’t! Today I’m going to talk about Devil May Cry 3: Dante’s Awakening.
HERMIT-FRIENDLY version! For people who don’t like spoilers or reading:
Devil May Cry 3 is a hardcore, fast-paced, 3D beat-em-up action game about a white-haired guy named Dante who beats the shit out of monsters because it’s cool. Featuring over-the-top action and challenging, tightly-designed gameplay, this game is a must-play for game designers interested in the brawler genre. Just… trust me on this one. That said, this game comes from the old-school philosophy of “harder is always better”, and is downright infuriatingly difficult at times. If you are easily discouraged, you may miss out on some of the best that the game has to offer. It’s a shame that Devil May Cry 3 can be too hardcore for its own good, but overall it’s worth it.
