Devil May Cry 2 review
Now We Cry.

The good:

Gameplay
Graphics
More moves

The bad:

WAAAAY TOO EASY
Ilfrit and Alastor are gone
Dante has become a boring old sod
Too short
No replay value
No story

Summary:

I was excited about this game, in fact really excited. After finishing DMC1 for the 5th time i couldn't wait for more hack and slash action. Yet after 10 minutes of placing DMC2 in the PS2 i quickly realized that I've bought a stinker.
That's hard for me to say cos I love the franchise but it's true.

In fairness though DMC2 has better graphics, more moves and 3 playable characters, but it lacks in all other aspects.

Enemies die before they get a chance to attack you because they are so slow and sluggish, background seems bland and lacks the gorgeous back drops a la DMC1 and Dante lost his sense of humour.

All in all though it isn't a terrible game, it has got it's good moments. The building that turns into a boss and the final battle were up to DMC1 standard but it's still way too easy even on Hard mode. Games shouldn't be as easy as this, especially games that are aimed at the adult audience.

If you've never played a DMC game then get this, it is good for your first outing of the game but the fans of the series expected more.
