The best Action game for PS2
Many people will tell you this game is too hard. I will tell them they don't pay enough attention to the game. I beat Normal mode in under 9 hours for the first time. Easy mode is insanely easy.

The key to beating this game is paying attention, avoiding then attacking, and not mindlessly button mashing. This is the main reason people whine about this game being too hard.

The story is much improved compared to DMC1 and VASTLY improved since DMC2. The gameplay has evolved and fighting is intuitive and creative. The combos that are possible to perform are endless.

The boss fights are amazing. They aren't cheap, but they are difficult if you don't pay attention and expect to hack your way through without thinking.

This game is for people that want a real action game. There's no way to get through the game by button mashing.

For new players: Don't play Easy Automatic. Easy Automatic is worse than playing on normal. It makes you lose control of your character.

Don't complain about the difficulty on Normal mode, if you just listen to the game, you'll hear most of the attacks coming.

This game's description of Sparda's final defiant act against the underworld differs from the take told in the first game. This game tells that Sparta betrayed demonkind and sealed the portal to the underworld, with little mention of Emporer Mundus. The first game opens with a tale of how Sparta waged a one-man war against the entire underworld, defeating Mundus himself and then sealing demonkind (along with his own demonic power) in the underworld. The full story is never explained in a linear fashion and each new game adds some aspect of Sparda's story that was not previously mentioned.


Agni: Look brother! It's been ages but we finally have company!
Rudra: I see that!
Agni: We must entertain our guest.
Rudra: You're right, we have to be gracious hosts.
Agni: Hmm... what should we do?
Rudra: How should I know? We need to come up with something.
Agni: Brother, our guest is... ...


After Dante and Vergil's first battle, Vergil takes Dante's amulet by ripping it from his neck. However, Dante wasn't wearing the amulet around his neck in the cutscene preceding the battle, and didn't put it on during the battle.

Crazy Credits

You can control Dante during the credits as he and Lady fights off the enemies. If you manage to defeat over 100 enemies before the credits end, you can watch the extra ending with Vergil.
