4.0 out of 5 stars Games still as good as ever, just one slight control flaw., 6 April 2012
= Fun:5.0 out of 5 stars 
This review is from: Devil May Cry HD Collection (Xbox 360) (Video Game)
It's great to see these games getting released on 360 as well as PS3 as it no doubt opens them up to an audience that hadn't had the oppertunity to try them before.

All three original games are re-mastered to look pretty good even by todays standards, and the controls and gameplay remain as fluid as they ever were. The second game still remains the weakest of the bunch, but all are worth a playthrough as most modern action games owe a lot to the innovation here.

Only two things hold this collection back from being a full 5 stars. Firstly, the frankly bizzare choice of not re-mastering the menus for the games, the effect really jars against everything else. Secondly, and more importantly, the extremely odd choice of design when it comes to controls. The right bumper is used to control dodging, weaponry and special moves whilst the right trigger is left totally idle. This made the controls take a lot of getting used to, and would have been so easy to solve with just a little more customisation being made available. To be clear all of these options being on the same button is fine, it's just in an awkward place. Once you get used to it though, everything is as tight as it ever was.

Now that you can get the entirety of Devil May Cry 1-4 for about 35, it's a great time to go back through the whole bunch before the reboot 'DMC' is launched later in the year.
