Unleash your inner demon and experience twice the gameplay and graphic sizzle of the original adventure! This time Dante has a new partner in mayhem in the devilishly acrobatic Lucia, a mysterious heroine who's got Dante's back. Together, they join forces against the hoards of evil in this stylish action thriller that's cooler than hell!

As sure as the sun will rise tomorrow, Capcom will make a sequel. The company that practically wrote the book on sequels with the Street Fighter II series has returned from the wellspring of gothic action with the sequel to one of 2001's biggest hit titles, Devil May Cry. Given a relatively short cycle and a handful of new team members, Capcom's coolest game ever (we remember Shinji Mikami saying at E3, " I wanted to make a game that was cool") has taken the quick-to-become-a-legacy franchise and done some unusual things with it. "Unusual" meaning that it's still hard to pin down exactly what the development team had in mind. It's as if Devil May Cry 2 gives you the looks and feel of the first, but removes nearly every single aspect that made it fun to play.

The problem is that the game was taken from its original close quarters setting and brought to a more open setting. Something about it just doesn?t feel right.

A perfectly competent game, but it falls notably short of the original brilliance. [PSM2]

The frustrating, non-compliant camera and general lack of challenge keep DMC 2 from being great. [Mar 2003, p.60]

It seems to lack the personality that the first had. Is it a good action title? Yes. With multiple difficulty modes, two characters to play as and secret rooms to find, dedicated action buffs should have a good time with this sequel.

Kept from greatness by the terrible camera, pacing issues, short quests, and general lack of continuity, making it a sequel that actually tacks more criticisms on to the series, instead of fixing them.

The game simply bores me to tears. The original game still has me coming back for more, and yet I cannot imagine stomaching another trip through this sequel, even though the adventure is significantly shorter this time around.

I stared at the television in disbelief for a good hour wondering how Capcom cold have messed up this bad. Devil May Cry 2 in not only a grave disappointment, it's a painful one. [Mar 2003, p.78]

The most noted improvement? Better in-game camera angles that no longer get in the way of action. [7 Feb 2003, p.90]
