Given the modern resurgence of giving classic franchises an HD make-over, it should come as no surprise that one of the more venerated action series is up next. That's right folks, there is now a Devil May Cry: HD Collection!
The fact of the matter is that Devil May Cry was a groundbreaking series in modern action gaming. If you've never played these games before, having the first three titles all on one disk is very nice, especially considering the price point. I really like how you literally see the series evolve as you play through the games in order. However, it's difficult not to feel like this franchise is dated. Mechanics that were once revolutionary are now par for the course, but more often than not you'll notice that they don't do things that way anymore because they've found better options in the interim. I'm also disappointed with the HD Collection simply because of how uneven the make-over was. Seeing blurry menu screens time and again is simply too jarring to just pass over. I can't for the life of me understand why that wasn't given an overhaul as well. It's what I've feared with this recent HD revival: cutting corners and simply trying to cash in on old brands. Still, for old fans of the series who want to replay some awesome moments and memorable boss battles (and there are no shortage of those) to newcomers who want to try some truly classic (if dated) games, then the Devil May Cry HD Collection is definitely worth your time... even if the end result is a growing appreciation for how far gaming has developed since.
