This might not be the most popular thing to say, but.....I actually kind of liked DMC 2. Yeah, it was boring and it was hard to pull off most of the moves, but there were no game breaking glitches, Dante still looked like Dante and his DT looked...you know, like a DT. There weren't really any super cool moments, except for when Dante defeated Argosax.
Newer isn't always better. And I shall keep Dante's Force Edge polished and sharp till he comes back.
