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. See more »


Jester: It's time for bed, Mary dear. You can visit your dear mother.
[He laughs maniacally. Lady flips to her feet, grabs the Kalina Ann and holds the bayonet to his throat]
Lady: Try me.
[two swords are laid on his neck]
Vergil: It's time for the clown to bow out, Arkham.
Dante: Dude, the show's over.

Wrong Plot line!
20 April 2006 | by (Maidstone) – See all my reviews

I'm sorry to be picky, but 'Follow Dante's journey as he battles his evil twin brother in a final confrontation.' is a completely wrong plot line! it's a prequel to devil may cry, where you fight Nelo Angelo, who also happens to be Virgil, your brother! It's plot line is: Dante has just opened his demon hunting business, and has yet to name it, when a large tower appears in the centre of town, and realising it's the work of his brother, he goes to investigate, realising his powers on the way.'

Phew, rant over

It's an absolutely amazing game though, much better than the slight disappointment of devil may cry 2. I'm so glad they kept in the dark knight. and i love the whole ott-ness of all the cut scenes.

People say they don't like the whole fast paced-ness of the game, but when you start getting into it, it all becomes almost intuitive.

one of my only gripes, next to the sometimes awkward camera is easy mode. it's just annoying!there you are flipping around, doing your whole i'm cooler than anyone thing, and all of a sudden, he starts doing his own thing, as they make the combos easier to perform, 'i didn't want to do the multi stab! i wanted to knock him dow, jump on his face and slid around the floor, shooting the bejebus out of everyone!

The cutscenes, however, i have no words for, just strange guttural sounds. i've played through some of the hardest levels, just so some of my friends could see some of them, and my god, it was worth it
