The best Action game for PS2
16 September 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

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.
