Game Overview

Devil May Cry was originally released in 2001. The game began production as Resident Evil 4 but after some time, the developers realized that the game bore little resemblance to a Resident Evil game. Instead, development was shifted to "Team Little Devils" and the game became the Hack n' Slash game Devil May Cry. Since then, the game and the franchise it started have become regarded by many as the example by which other games in the genre are compared.

Since its release in 2001 for the PlayStation 2, the original game has gone on to sell 3 million units, had an HD remake released in 2012 (750,000 units) and been rebooted into DmC: Devil May Cry in January 2013.

@AgentRedgrave. Whatever the case, this
is the original Devil May Cry game and
the true iteration of Dante. Which
frankly blows the abysmal
characterisation of DMC4 Donte out of
the water.

Ahhh, good memories with this game. This
is game is probably the first of it's
kind. ^_^

@A203D No actually I didn't, cause
unlike some people I don't go snooping
on other accounts. Also, you do realize
I wasn't the only one who replied. The
only reason you're giving me crap is
because I, how'd you put it, stood in
defiance of you over DMC4 "The game has
actually sold about 2.16 copies. I still
think despite its age, its better than
DMC4." I fail to see what this has to
do with my comment, and seriously I
stick up for DMC1 one of my favorite
games, which you claim to be a true fan
of and consider the only true DMC, and
you still give me crap? Huh and you
accuse me of trolling

@AgentRedgrave. You do realise that user
your replying to has been inactive for
the last 4-5 years. The game has

I also started with DMC3,
and I feel your comment is unfair. You
have to take into account that DMC1 was
the first game of the series, and what
they were able to do back then.
Of-course DMC3 has better combat. But
still the first game set the standard
