My Take : Devil May Cry 2

It's an amazing game. A lot of people are putting it down but it's like a new game, all together. Dante is as hot as ever and the new playable Lucia, is sweet! The whole game derives off a pretty good storyline but Dante could speak more...because I really like his voice actor... ^^;; ..Hehe..suits the part very well. Lets go over the basics:

Gameplay

Smooth and fluid! It's utterly amazing how a year's difference can take upon a game. Dante's movements are so much more fluid and he can do a lot more "stunts" than in the previous game. From the beginning, you are provided with Air Hike and Stinger. Useful to the game's new "S" standard. He can also shoot in both directions, which totally rocks...^^;;;

Storyline

I haven't got that far into the game to know much of the storyline but all I know is that the main enemy is some guy who looks incredibly like Nobunaga Oda from Onimusha 2 but in a pink, pimp looking suit. ^^;; ... weird, ne? So far, All I can say it that, I need to get further into the game before judging the game for it's storyline.

Overall Rating

I absolutely love this game. It's like one of those things you see at the store, which makes you go GAGA all over it. ^_^;; ... Then again, it's Dante, who wouldn't? Hehehe. I feel that it's more like a roleplaying game as well. You get to level up your weapons and upgrade them into something stronger. As the story progresses, you get to gain new amulets which will help you gain new abilities for your devil mode. I give it a 4 out of 5.

Yeah, yeah. I know, I wanted to give it a 5 out of 5 but I haven't finished the game yet to FULLY feel the potential of the game! Thank you Capcom for creating Dante, I will always love you for it!! ^_^;;

ok i was a big fan of the first game....i mean playing it made me giddy

but im sad to say...i don't feel the same about the secound one...mainly because of one big noticable flaw

the FUCKING CAMERA!

ugggg omg it is so annouying the problim isn't that its all over the place...no no...the problim is it dosen't move...and its too far away from Dante...so he is so small...and you can't get up close to the action..its is as if your some person looking on from 50 feet away. And since the the enviroments are so big..it becomes very distracting ...also when there are several enimes on screen at the same time. Speaking of enimies the AI is horible...i once stood ther wifth 4 bad guys walking around me ...and it took 10 secounds for one to acually try to attack me. The camera hurts you alot in boss fights...like when you have to fight the helicopter. Its flying around all over the place but, becuase the camera can't move...you can't see it %95 of the time u just autolock and shoot..easy as that. Another thing is how easy boss fights are...all you have to do is go into devil mode...and fire away they will be dead within no time.

I was let down a great deal, just becuase these factors hurt the gameplay so much.

i haven't even gotten to lucias game yet!

Camera Angles REALLY SUCK sometimes (if not always). When he jumps in the air, I feel that sometimes, they should change the camera angle towards the ground...that should help us see wtf is going on!! That helicopter thing was insane!!! X_X I couldn't see and all I could do was fire blind!! Meep! There were also times when the monkey boss was ticking me off. He was freakin' insane, jumping around and moving away from my view point...grr...but yes...everything was pretty good afterwards. :P

I thought the game was totally awsome.

What I hated was the fact that one of the riviewers on videogames.com called the game a "BIG dissapointment". None the less, I was enraged and called the site, videogames.com a "BIG dissapointment"

The main reason why I liked it is because dante is soooo hot!!! I mean come on!! That white silky hair, that broad masculine face, those sexy white eyes, the way he walks and talks, and the way he looks at things.....mmmmm.....but back to the game...ummm...it was pretty good...I mean the shooting in two directions thing totally rocked...however the secret missions thing from the first one was cool.....but the difficulty adjustment is just weird...I played really good (meaning I never got hit once and never used any healing items) and the game was still a little on the easy side...I also like dante's new array of abilities that he can use to his discretion....I mean who would not love running up a wall? or being able to air hike or round trip without spending a whole ton of orbs..the RPG feel to it is kinda weird....upgrading weapons???? hmmmmm....kinda cool...but what happened to Alastor??? I loved that sword...and man only trish get's to have the sparda sword??? that sucks!!! however I like dante's new outfit over his old one!! how about you digitaldreams???

I like his new one. TOTALLY. Dante is hot and gorgeous!!! ^_^ hehe I keep staring at my stand-in and yeah!! ... lets see, I thought the game was pretty easy after I played it again. It's become like a habit. I just finished the Lucia mission and it's great!!! ^_^;;; ... Lets see... I like the upgrading weapons but I dunno...sometimes it might be a disadvantage. But yea, I miss alastor... ;_; we should chat next time about Dante... that yummy bastard.

The reviewers are calling it a BIG dissapointment, becuase as a game and with gameplay it is....and you just can't match the first one up with the 2nd one. The 2nd one feels so rushed and thrown together...and its so easy..that even tho you can pull off kick ass moves...there really is no point. Gameplay the game sucks ass...im sorry im a HUGE fan of the first DMC and i bought this the day it came out...played it for a half an hour and was like wTF is this shit?

This is why I mentioned that it should be taken as a new game all on it's own. If you compare it to the first DMC it would NEVER compare. The first one had faults too mind you. It was easier than this.. LoL...anyway, I still have yet to get an S in this game...maybe in hard mode it'll be harder for me. ^^;; .. who knows.

Do not get me wrong here folks because i was a HUGE fan of the first one when it came out for PS2. Part 2 however while being good is not as good as part one was. To me it is much to easy and the levels honestly suck. Another thing that i have to complain about it Dante himself. Now don't get me wrong the man is badass to no end more in part one he was a smartass about everything. In part two however it seems like he "grew up" so to speak. Overall the game is good but it could have been much, much harder.

Oh btw. a little piece on hard mode. When you beat normal mode in part 2 you will start hard mode with all the powerups you had before when you ended the game in normal mode. What does this mean? Hard mode is easier than normal.
