    A short week and a half from the release of Devil May Cry 2. Color me excited! I'm looking forward to once again stomping monster ass with Dante and his new hottie friend Lucia.
    Heres the box art for all three regions:

    (Man what I wouldn't give for us here in the US to get the Pal cover art. That European cover art is fantastic.

    Gamestop has a good deal going to get this:
    Any 2 PS2 games (including olden ones,excluding old sports & wrestling titles) & $9.99.
    I traded in Sky Odyssey & Project Eden.
    Nuff' said. ( S.O. is okay, but having to change the PS2 audio cords was a real pain )
    I'm really looking forward to this one [​IMG]

    So this game is on 2 dvds? That is what I heard somewhere else and it says 2 discs on the PAL box. Is this confirmed?

    Well, the review is in from IGN: A very pedestrian 7.0. Here's the closing comments of the review:

    Anyone pick this one up yet? I was planning on using a coupon/pricematch to get it at BestBuy for $34.99, but now I'm leaning towards waiting on it to drop down to greatest hits price range.

    Crimson Sea is starting to look more appealing.

    I'll have it a little after 1pm James, I'll post some brief impressions a bit later tonight.

    The scores for the game thus far have been disappointing and a little frightening to me as I am a big fan of the first game. I will give its it due chance though, as always I'm buying it nonethless, I'll decide for myself if its worthy 9and if its not I'll go strangle Capcom!!!)

    I dont know how they could screw up this game ... what a waste if they have, the 1st one is awesome.

    Maybe Chaos Legion will be better..

    Based on the lack of word about this game pre-release, I was scared of this. FWIW, I thought DMC was 2001's GOY, and one of my all-time favorites. DMC2 was my most anticipated game for 2003 (even over Halo 2). But as the date got closer and closer, I heard...nothing. No new movies (well, a few), no real excitement by the people who get excited, nothing. I even used ebay to get a copy of the demo (first two levels) a few weeks ago, and while I enjoyed playing the character, the game seemed like it was really missing something.
    That said, I'll buy DMC 2, because the action and controls are up my alley. But I can't say this was unexpected after the lack of fanfare. A shame, because the original was a real blast. Maybe I'll dig this one more than they did. I hope so [​IMG]
    Take care,
    Chuck

    It got pretty mediocre reviews from EGM, not even a silver. I can't see how, though - it still looks really fun.

    Guess I'll have to see for myself.

    Extended Play on Tech TV gave it a 4 out of 5, I believe.

    The impression I get from all the reviews is that it's good, but not nearly as good as the first one.

    I think the big letdown is how short it ends up being. The first one was definitely hard on normal mode. And hard mode I found so difficult, I gave up. The first time I heard about the automatically adjusted difficulty, I was afraid. Every review seems to focus mostly on the fact that the game is now too easy and too short.
    I am going to pick this up with the CC buy DMC2, get DMC1 free deal (never owned DMC1, borrowed it for a month or two). But I am probably going to ebay off DMC2 in a few weeks after I've beat it. I hate easy games. I only hope it is harder than EGM made it out to be.

    GameSpot just gave it a 6.4 but I'm not providing a link because it's a bit depressing.

    I've been playing this game for 2 days now and I think it's great! From what I hear, Trish is a fully playable character once you beat the game with Dante. However, she isn't in the game so far. And by the way, this is the cover of the US release. They used the cooler font...
