Did You Know?


Though the blade Force Edge and both of Sparda's amulets are featured in the game, the 3 are never joined to create the sword "Sparda." (Which would bestow the wielder with Sparda's latent powers.) See more »


After Dante and Vergil's first battle, Vergil takes Dante's amulet by ripping it from his neck. However, Dante wasn't wearing the amulet around his neck in the cutscene preceding the battle, and didn't put it on during the battle. See more »

Best in the series
23 September 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The third game of the series is the best, as is the law of trilogies. I like this game for the same reasons I like the first. The characters. Dante has returned the fast-talking sarcastic B.A. that we all know and love. However this time he actually develops, unlike the first, in which he is already developed and remains the same throughout. His brother Vergil makes his first appearance since 2001, and he's a better character in this one, as a dark and dramatic figure who is deadly with a blade. Arkham, the mysterious old former librarian who aids Vergil in his quest for his father's power, and Lady, a mysterious demon hunter with a connection to Arkham, shown by their matching red and blue eyes. They are all linked, as well and as unexpectedly as a Dickens novel. The characters and their development beats the first, even. The plot itself is also very good. But I won't spoil it, because then you won't be motivated to play the game. Just trust me that it's as good as the first if not better. The game is best if it is the special edition, in which you can play as Vergil, and you can lower the difficulty if necessary.

In total, this deserves an 11 but they don't have that here.
