Devil May Cry 3 Special Edition is an Action Adventure hack and slash video game. The game is a prequel to the original Devil May Cry, with a younger Dante. Set before the original Devil May Cry, Devil May Cry 3: Special Edition follows Dante’s journey as he battles his evil twin brother in a final confrontation. Along the way, you’ll encounter both formidable foes and unusual characters. When attacking, you can choose to use short-range, long-range, defensive, or evasive play styles. Each system has its own set of gameplay features, and you can choose to power up your favorite style for increased special attack abilities. The Special Edition adds the ability to play as Dante’s nemesis Virgil and a survival game mode.
The gameplay in Devil May Cry 3 consists of levels (“missions”) in which players battle enemies, carry out platforming tasks and solve puzzles to progress through the story. The player’s performance in each mission is graded from D through C, B and A, with top marks of S and SS. Grades are based on time taken to complete a mission, the number of red orbs (game currency, obtained from defeated enemies) gathered, “stylish” combat, item usage and damage received. Stylish combat is the performance of a series of attacks while avoiding damage, and is tracked by an on-screen gauge. The longer a player attacks without repetition and evades damage, the higher the score. The gauge registers “Dope” after a few attacks, progressing through “Crazy”, “Blast”, “Alright”, “Sweet”, “SShowtime” to peak at “SSStylish”. If Dante receives damage, the style rating falls; if the gauge is “Crazy” or below, it will reset. Devil May Cry 3’s battle system allows a player to link attacks, with each weapon having a set number of attacks. Although the game focuses on battle aggression, a player must also employ strategy; the enemies use a variety of artificial-intelligence tactics, and respond to a variety of events.
