Repetition in a game is NOT a bad thing, almost all games are repetitive. What matters is if YOU enjoy the game, then the repetition becomes enjoyable and doesn't feel monotonous or boring.

How can people make those claims when I see the actual evidence?

http://www.lensoftru...hot-comparison/


Yeah, the dude that wrote that comment on Amazon is obviously either a complete idiot and/or just dissing the game because he has some legitimate beef with Capcom, such as their "in-game" dlc garbage and is just going to take it out any and everywhere he can. :booty:

However, you do have to be careful when reading that article from Lens of Truth because they keep referencing it as an "HD remake", which it obviously is not. It is an "HD upscale" just like every other HD collection of last-gen console games but certainly not just a "widescreen upscale" as that idiot on Amazon said. I mean seriously, wtf is a widescreen upscale...it's not an upscale at all it's just a simple optimization of the game's aspect ratio to properly fit the 16:9 format. And given that you can play all the DMC games in widescreen on your PS2 if you set it to a 16:9 aspect ratio (and turn on texture smoothing if you want, though you have to remember to turn that off when you play PS1 games), I don't think Capcom or any publisher would be dumb to assume people wouldn't notice that there would be NO graphical difference from the original games. :wall:

And it's like I was saying before, from my experience with the HD upscaled games I've played on PS3, you can definitely tell that textures have been smoothed, colors and shading have been made to look more realistic and "filled in" with the higher resolution, along with some other nice touches. Unfortunately, you're still going to see elements of the original graphics since nothing has been changed at the core graphics programming level, which would be quite a bit more expensive. So basically none of these games are going to look anywhere near the quality of most current-gen games that were originally designed for HD resolutions and take full advantage of that because these games weren't. But it's not too expensive to upscale games developed from 480i/480p resolutions to 720p and see a decent increase in the visual aesthetics. It's really give and take; but overall if you haven't played the original series or have played it but don't own and are interested in playing it again, then you're getting a pretty good deal on most of the HD collections. :)

Game looks new and so does the manual, perhaps they are new and capcom uses crappy shrink wrap sometimes................

Just wanted to say that I got my copy for PS3 yesterday. I was a big fan of DMC 3 back when it came out, and was hoping this collection did a good enough job to make me want to play it again.

I saw reviews that said it was barely an HD collection and that the cutscenes (one of the best parts of the game) were the same as the original, untouched. Basically, I heard some bad things about how it turned out.

While it isn't as good-looking as other HD collections, it is still pretty decent. As far as the cutscenes go, it seems that the title screen/opening video and the first cutscene are untouched, but the rest of the cutscenes so far have been updated to HD.

Game looks pretty good, could be better, but definitely warrants a purchase if you were a fan of the old DMC games. I might even give DMC 2 a try. Maybe.

That's a relief. I bought it from BestSKU and it had the same style wrapping instead of the Y-Fold style, was worried a bit.

Same here, hopefully it's actually new and they just used the shitty sealing since it's Newegg.

My copy from Amazon came like this also. I was thinking it wasn't new but the copies come like this now. I've seen copies with the Y fold but they were release copies.

Yeah, plus with what blueweltall said (I saw that post after I already posted). I think it's just because these are online only retailers so they figure they can just use the cheap stuff.

Got my game yesterday. Mine hadthe Y fold.

Started playing DMC 1 again, I forgot how much more exploration this one focused on compared to the other games. Love that music when you first enter the castle.

Looks better than what they did to code veronica and resident evil 4 hd. Except for the menus and cut scenes which they sadly left the same full screen ratio and no hd touch up.

I've ordered a few games from New Egg in the past...and EVERYONE of them have come damaged in one way or another...Darksiders 1 had to be the best...the case AND disc was actually bent!
They replaced them each time...with a "perfect one", no questions asked, didn't even have to return the damaged one. However...this only leads me to believe this is common for them...not the post office's fault...will never order from them again

I have the same problem, my case is crushed. Never had this problem with newegg until the last few months. White Knight 2, Xbox Arcade Triple Pack, Somic Generations and now dmc collection... Don't think I'm going to order from newegg anymore.

I feel torn because they have good sales. But I don't even like my games with bent paperwork let alone a smashed case!

They sent my copy in a box big enough to fit..well idk, almost big enough to fit a console. It was filled with tons of brown paper. Does newegg usually ship games in large packaging or what?

They do have good sales...but it sucks to have to wait for the game to arrive, only to find it destroyed, and wait for a replacement.
And I'm sorry..not to totally rag on them...but they must deliberately send out the smashed case in hopes your not going to complain...because the replacement is always perfect...so the fault is not with the shipping.

I got the same crushed case with dmc, yet my other game was fine. Yeah, this must be a problem on newegg's end (I thought it had been damaged during shipping). Looks like the xbox version sold by newegg is oos now.

I used shoprunner so this may be why, but newegg sent my copy in a giant box 10 times bigger than the game itself so it was well protected.

I used ShopRunner too, but still got the standard bubble envelope. I haven't cracked into the shrink wrap yet, but all looks well on my 360 copy.

There's nothing to worry about, you've received a new copy. My DMC Collection was also shrink-wrapped. The wrapping depends on which plant they used to manufacture the discs.
