Game description: Devil May Cry 3 reintroduces the mysterious hero, Dante, in a new game featuring a new storyline, more weapons, and intense action. Set before the original Devil May Cry, the game follows Dante's journey as he battles his evil twin brother in a final confrontation. Along the way, you'll encounter both formidable foes and unusual characters. When attacking, you can choose to use short-range, long-range, defensive, or evasive play styles. Each system has its own range of gameplay features, and you can choose to power up your favorite style for increased special attack abilities.
Devil May Cry 3: Dante's Awakening, is an action-adventure hack and slash video game developed and published by Capcom, released in 2005 for the PlayStation 2 and ported to Microsoft Windows in 2006. The game is a prequel to the original Devil May Cry, with a younger Dante. It retains elements from the two previous games, expanding its combat system with a number of fighting styles. The story is told primarily in cutscenes using the game's engine, with several pre-rendered full motion videos.

Some effects cause moderate slowdown. Door transitions cause some garbled/corrupted audio. D3D11 rendering mode is pretty fast but lacks the blending to emulate effects correctly, OGL can emulate the same effects but the game becomes much slower than SW mode. Resolution scaling can cause huge slowdowns in menus the higher you go. Nyahello
