A totally different beast from Devil May Cry 1. Its heavy focus on intricate multi weapon comboing makes it so enemies are generally not dangerous in small numbers, instead creating challenge by forcing you to divide your attention between them in groups while maintaining your style meter. Many more bosses, most of them are at least decent, there's only one I would call a complete stinker. Dante's kit in this game is great, although having to level styles separately is kind of a damper on your versatility within a single 'fresh' game cycle.
Cutscenes are genuinely fantastic, great characters brought to life with fantastic dialogue, choreography, mo-cap and voice acting and a simple, coherent, heartfelt story.
