I’ve been playing through the Devil May Cry series recently - I've been meaning to do it for years but with the release of DMC5 I finally decided it was time to get round to it. I really enjoyed the first game, and it felt great to finally finish the whole thing after never getting that far when I was just a little teeny tiny baby boy.
DMC2 on the other hand just completely drained me for some reason. The reality is it’s not a bad game. There’s a bit more variety in combat (if you really wanted to put in more effort than necessary) and the environments have a little more flavour, but the whole thing is so tedious and underwhelming. And they still didn’t fix the camera issues from the first game. I’d heard a lot of negative stuff about DMC2 prior to playing it, but I figured I had to see it to believe it.
3 hours 40 minutes of my life I’ll never get back. I could’ve watched Beetlejuice two and a half times in that span. That’s it, that’s my review, don’t play DMC2, just go watch Beetlejuice at least twice.
