    fcking casuals complaining about the difficulty making this even easier than before. Playing as Vergil is the only good thing from Special Edition.

    Wow, high scores from everyone. Ok lets see, a guitar as a weapon, Dante himself is like a goth white boy with stupid jokes, every stage seems to look the same, some of the worst Boss battles i have ever seen in a game before(The Ice Dog-the witch lady), Dante seems useless with his new moves(although he's younger), the difficulty is for the insane. For one I have a life, so i'm Wow, high scores from everyone.

For one I have a life, so i'm not going to sit at a game(WELL THIS GAME ANYWAY!) and play for 4 hours trying to figure out how to use all the "style" systems, cuz SwordMaster is prob the best. So what do we have so far, we have horrid gameplay where nothing flows like the first DMC and we have stupid characters a real crappy story(no I Collapse

  1. The extras are nice, but the most important feature is the tweaked difficulty level. No more tears while playing! [Oct 2006]

    The game's a little easier this time, but playing through with Vergil is a completely different experience.
  3. Far more than a new skin for the same action, playing as Vergil drastically alters the way you approach Devil May Cry. [Feb 2006, p.106]
