DMC was so good,with it's story,atmosphere,stages and all.

It was so good it could be a standalone game,with no sequels.

But,how difficult was it,really?

Was it one of the hardest games ever?

Like ppl say?

clearly myself and those people have different concepts of "hard.
and clearly they never played battletoads, ikaruga, legacy of the wizard, silver surfer or demon's souls :lol:

Out of those,i've played Ikaruga(GC ver.),Battletoads,and abit of Demon's Souls.

But mate,everybody knows DMC was hard...even the director intented it to be.

The thing is,how hard is it for you?

I remember playing the Platinum version,and being stuck in that...scizzors demon or w/e(and a few other bosses)

1. what are you basing that on? Personally, I know significantly more people who found it short and easy than who would rate it as difficult.

2. well, you have a history of asking questions/starting topics, and then complaining about the answers you get. take Shenmue up there, he answered your question validly, and then rated the game amonst the others in the series, then you jump down his throat with all that "did you even read my post" nonsense. makes people not want to bother responding to your posts is all.

Well i'm on the opposite side,apparently.:/

And no,you're magnifying things abit.

I don't complain,i reply,we all have our opinions.

I didn't "jump down his throat"

God,wtf?

>_> i quit,if u wanna think bs like that about my thread.

Then w/e.

In the case of DMC3, the difficulty of it covered up the fact that wasn't actually a great game. You kept playing it because you wanted to beat it, not because it was anything special.

PS When writing topics, be specific in the title. 50% of posters on GS appear to read the title then post a reply, skipping the first post entirely. And "Devil May Cry" is a franchise with several games in it, if you meant just DMC1 then you'd have put Devil May Cry 1 in the title. ;)

Could not get past the Spider boss. Gave up and sold the game.

It is in the hard enough to get the the final level and die. Then give up after 40 attempts to finish the last level.

I had DMC, I don't recall it being hard at all.

The game can be challenging sure, but not near one of the hardest games ever.

Once you got the hang of it it was not difficult.

Out of those games you list I've only played Battletoads, Ikaruga, and Silver Surfer and Demon's Souls.

I still think Devil May Cry is hard, in fact, I've been able to beat these games (With the exception of Demon's Souls because I don't have a PS3 so I could not play it at my own leisure) and I have not beat DMC1, I pretty much quit playing the game and I remember having such a hard time being the first boss.

I just can't play a game where 1 button does a bunch of different things in combat depending on whether you hold it, button bash it or press it at different intervals, and I just suck at the combat generally.

It upsets me because I love the game, but I will not play on Easy Automatic.

Hard compared to what, Resi six? Sure Original DMC was what I like to call, classic difficulty, meaning, difficult for this gaming era

It had a couple hard moments like the spider boss and final boss, other than that it wasn't too hard but not too easy. Devil May Cry 3, on the other hand, had way more challenging moments. Both great games though.
