SSStylish!!!
6 October 2012 | by See all my reviews

Easily my favorite hack n slash game ever made. I love Ninja Gaiden Black and Bayonetta immensely, but DMC3 is simply the king. I can't think of a category that matters where DMC3 doesn't come out on top in regards to the genre. From the combat system to the way the game just carries itself. Some things may be hit or miss with some people, most commonly criticized on its unforgiving difficulty. And while it certainly is challenging it just makes the reward so much sweeter when you finally master something. And it's so addicting that you might find yourself driven to SS rank every mission.

Now that the HD collection is out, if you haven't played it yet and you're a fan of the genre. Do yourself a favor and dive into this masterpiece.
