About The Game
The original is one of the finest games ever crafted. It has a little bit of Resident Evil flavor, since that was what it began development as, but that added to the atmosphere in a way that’s absent from the other games. If you weren’t playing as such a badass, the original would be a horror game, and I wish I could say that for the others. The combat, though basic compared to the third game, is smooth and responsive, and still lightyears ahead of any contemporaries or in fact most brawler games of today.
The sequel was a misstep, but an important one for the series. A lot of the things that made 3 and 4 so great were major refinements of ideas first implemented in 2. If game design is interesting to you, play it for the sake of analysis. There’s a lot to learn from it, especially with the context given by the first and third games. It also has some of the coolest animations in the series (not for the swords, but for everything else), which were never re-used.
The third game is the legend. The combat has yet to be matched in anything. Some say Bayonetta matches it, some say Metal Gear Rising, I say DMC3 is still in a league of its own for technical, exciting brawler combat. The level design lacks the flair and atmosphere of the first game, but the enemies, bosses, weapons, and fluidity of fighting more than make up for it.
