Key points

Includes remastered versions of:
Keyboard support is barebones, and there is no mouse support in-game. A controller is recommended.
Devil May Cry 1 is missing some video effects (like motion blur, depth of field) and has audio bugs.[1]
Devil May Cry 3 has less issues than DMC1, but various Devil May Cry 3 effects are weakened (such as motion blur, ghosting, and depth of field) and textures lack transparency.[2][3] See DMCHD Collection Helix Mod and shu_bham and cheburat0r's fixes for restoring most textures. (There are no mods for restoring Greed's bloom on the top portion of the coffin, Nevan's cutscene eye flashing, or the sign's flickering at the end for example.)
