Devil May Cry 

Aug 23, 2001
by Capcom

Legend has it that 2000 years ago in the depths of hell, a demon rebelled against the devil, waging a one-man war in support of the human world. In the present, Dante, a private investigator of the supernatural, realises that the devil is rallying to rise again against mankind. Deep within Dante's blood lies the power of ancient demons and as his power builds he transforms into a demon state where he can use his power against evil he encounters. Commencing his battle against the demonic legions with just a sword and his twin pistols, Ebony and Ivory, Dante will soon come across more powerful weapons, such as a shotgun to aid him in his mission. However, to defeat the devil Dante must also discover special weapons possessing various elemental powers. When channelled correctly these weapons will allow Dante to call upon demonic energy and launch powerful attacks against a range of enemies.

Keeping this unrated, because it's been on my list forever. I asked for this for Christmas in 2001, and got it, but I recently played it, and I got about as far as I did 19 years ago.

I don't care for the characters, the story, or the enemies, or anything much with this game.

I think it was just on my backlog because I wanted to honor the $50 USD my mother spent on it.

Sorry again, Mom.

atrocious camera angles, confusing story, stupid underwater sections, so many flying enemies that interrupt the flow of gameplay, repetitive bosses, confusing missions, not a whole lot of variety of enemies, overall a very flawed game saved by its aesthetic, ideas, soundtrack, and gameplay (when its good)

Started the "character action" genre but I think its a bit hard to go back to nowadays. The combat is fun but much more simplistic compared to later games in the series (even 3, which was also on the PS2) I suppose it's not fair to fault it for that though as it was the first of its kind.

The camera is another big obstacle for me. It's really annoying in a few rooms throughout the game.

One big plus about the game is the art direction and atmosphere. Sure it's a PS2 game but the environment and character design is still really great even today.

Overall I would say it's worth checking out if you have any interest in this genre or these types of games.
