  1. The most monumental loss is style.
  2. Glaring deficiencies, such as the redundant environments, weak camera system, and most importantly, a severe lack of challenge.
  3. 30
    One of the most disappointing sequels in gaming history.

    This game just DOES NOT deserve a 10. The camera is terrible, the environments aren't bad but compared to DMC 1 are plain and ugly. It's can be finished in under 5 hours (there are two discs-but there the same game) and dosn't have much replay value. A good rental. Full Review »

    In sharp contrast to Devil May Cry, the sequel dumbs down the difficulty an extreme amount. It caters to everyone who whined that the first was too hard, the game play it watered down, it ruins Dante's lovable cocky, confident, and competent personality, and the characters and storyline are absolutely unengaging.

    It's kind of like a spin-off of a great movie, good, but the director (or in this case, developer) forgot everything that made the original a classic. Full Review »
