The porting is flawless. This HD Collection is totally a must have. I've got the 360 version, but I've heard PS3 players echo the same sentiment. Totally worth the price.

Capcom NA was super lazy and copied the cover of the European "Classics HD" branding.

4-5% off, basically the quick picks discount which isn't bad if you want it right now. I haven't touched my MGS or Sly Collections yet so I'll wait but thanks for tempting me again.

It was released early by a few retailers, like Gamestop.

The PS3 version is apparently worse than the 360 version, oddly. That's based on user reviews I've seen, so take it with a good-sized grain of salt. I have no preference for either console, except that I do prefer the PS3 controller. I try to study up on which platform is the optimal console platform for any given game. Bayonetta was definitely better on the 360, Spider-man 3 was definitely better on the PS3.

I'm probably gonna wait until I can get this for $30 or less.

The only issue I've ever seen from reading numerous reviews are issues with old CRTs... one person complained about the audio desyncing. Otherwise, both the PS3 and 360 ports are pretty much perfect.

I had to review the ps3 version and the graphical issues killed it for me. Most of the cutscenes/menus are in 4:3, quite a few textures in dmc1 look like ass, the letterbox formatting in Lucia may cry doesn't even cover the whole bottom of the screen, etc. Also, the game just doesn't look right converted to 16:9 since all of the characters get that taller/slimmer effect going on.

It's my least favorite of the hd collections out so far because of the rush job, but at least the game still plays damn good

Those aren't graphical glitches or bugs. DMC1 textures look like ass? How many of these HD collections redo the texture work? The answer is none. DMC1 came out in 2001... the fact that it looks good at all is a testament to how classic the game is. I can't speak for DMC2, but quite frankly, you should not be evaluating the merits of this collection based on that game. It was essentially included as a "freebie." I mean, it should be taken into account for a final review, but ultimately I don't think it should influence anybody.

The 4:3 menus, I can understand, but... they're just menus. I mean, really. And the majority of cutscenes are in-game, and 16:9, not 4:3. The pre-rendered cutscenes are unfortunately 4:3, but that simply can't be changed without completely remaking the FMVs, which is impractical.

Also, you are aware that they didn't stretch the image to 16:9, they actually expanded the view to widescreen, right? There is no taller/slimmer effect in either DMC1 or DMC3 (again, can't speak on DMC2, but I'd wager the same thing in that one). I don't mean to be rude, but if you were reviewing the HD collection for a site, I hope that you would acknowledge these differences from actual glitches... and in the case of ratio, you're flat out wrong.

If this is your least favorite collection, then you clearly didn't play the Silent Hill Collection, or the RE4 HD release.

Taken from Capcom's press releases: "Upgraded visuals – Experience the stylish gothic action that the series is best known for in stunning HD, with updated textures and widescreen support"

I'm entitled to wanting a remaster to touch up the things that stick out the most. With so many of the pre-rendered cutscenes and menus just looking out of place, I had to wonder if Foundation 9 gave up part way.

Don't get me wrong, I love the series and didn't mind paying $40. I just wish that the collection transitioned better. The updated controls in DMC1 alone would've been enough for me to buy the game.

Um, the first of these collections, GoW did just that. Sly Cooper, MGS also had redone textures. Several others have as well

Yep. DMC3 is one of the greatest actions games ever made.

I think there was just a practical element to it. All of the other HD releases that I've seen only have in-game cutscenes (MGS, ICO, RE4, GoW) or had originally letterbox FMVs anyway (so they could really just be blown up). They could have done something with the menus, I'll agree. The FMVs are a lost cause. Sure, they could have done more.

I just have to take a look at the Silent Hill HD collection to see how badly things could have gone with this port. It's solid. It's not MGS or GoW quality, but it's solid nonetheless.

Um, the first of these collections, GoW did just that. Sly Cooper, MGS also had redone textures. Several others have as well



You're right. I misspoke. God of War did touch up the texturework, but they didn't completely redo it. God of War already had impressive textures to begin with. DMC1 didn't really have that luxury for a lot of backgrounds and other effects (otherwise not noticeable on a SD TV). The textures for the DMC Collection are retouched, and they added some AA.

I was originally under the impression that the game had been stretched for 16:9 displays based on what I had been told. Having taken the time to make the comparisons myself it is clearly as GuardianE says: the game properly implements widescreen without any issue.

This did come out last week because Capcom released it early. I believe it was posted on the US PS Blog, last week, too.

"...I normally open every game I buy anymore...", "...since I ONLY usually...", "...because it's wasn't fun...", "Pretty much sure it does...", "Works always gets in...", "...I acually spelled the my user...", "this will help let more people see it as this more people see...", "You very probably won't...", "...wouldnt have good sales less often due to less competition."

 Please, stop butchering the English language. These are horrible.

I sold my copies on PS2 to grab this, but not in any hurry. In CAG fashion... $20 or less! *sits and waits*

Thanks for the post, though, OP. People should really play these games. I played them all pretty near Day One.

Yes, I even pre-ordered DMC2 and played it all (pretty much in 2 days) and then returned it. It sucks.
