    What's your least favorite thing about Devil May Cry 2 (if you even liked it >_<)?

    Lucia's water levels were not all that fun for me.

    EDIT: Remember to keep it civil guys. This isn't about bashing the game, just about the things that didn't quite click with you.

    Doing his aerial kicks in the air wasn't fun at all.

    I think how overall the game just really was such a let down after playing the first one which forever secured a place in my heart being so awesome after I first played it.

    I honestly don't even remember much of DMC 2. It was the one game in the series I kinda never touched again after the first play through. I still have it somewhere around here and I should one day go through it again just to do it.

    It's kinda crazy, because I played the ever-loving hell out of DMC2 when I had it. I was poor, so I was the kind of gamer who didn't have a lot of games to choose from at times, but I loved so much about DMC2, and what it brought to the series (rainstorm, evasive moves, instant weapon switching).

    After getting to play them all closer together, I do find DMC2 a lot slower paced, which is sad poops.

    The wall running stuff was pretty fun. I remember liking that about 2.

    I used to have a hard-on for games that let me wall run, so it was like a double-boner when there was a DMC game that let me wall run.

    The entire game.

    Its story was just put together so lazily, and that's probably where Capcom decided to work more on story.

    The final boss. Okay, so I'm not a great hack n' slash player. If anything I'm average. Back then, I was worse since I just spammed Stinger and mashed buttons; now I'm getting by with mixing up combos and frantically dodging. In DMC2 you could upgrade your guns and on normal they could do a lot of damage. Yeah, you know what this leads to; I think I spent somewhere between 2 minutes to 5 minutes shooting the final boss with Ebony & Ivory. Think how boring that was. It didn't help that I wasn't good at hack n' slash games back then and it didn't help that I didn't have any recovery items. So I would shoot, dodge, Devil Trigger and shoot, run out of Devil Trigger, continue to shoot, dodge, and so on along with the occasional slap from the boss.

    Well, at least DMC2 introduced the usage of the circle button for "special actions", a primitive Rain Storm, wall-running which never made it past DMC3, the ability to switch through guns (and later weapons in future games) quickly, and an evade system - I think circle was the evade button. Well, in future games, lock-on and X allowed you to roll or in DmC's case, any mapped button allowed you to roll as Dante or "trick" as Vergil.

    Hey, the game was long enough as is. You'd do the same thing in my position. The whole game just felt "meh".

    Anyway, I remember an area with platforming and trying to get Merciless or something. That was horrible since it required precision jumping which DMC games aren't known for.

    Yeah, I hear yah. It sucks when you like a game, but you're just patently not all that good at it. I really liked Warcraft 2 when it came out, and wanted to play with all my buddies, but...I was so bad at RTS games. Still am, for the most part >.< Just not my cup of tea :S

    Well, I did get better after DMC2. God of War 3, Ninja Gaiden 2 Sigma, and a revisit to DMC4 kind of told me I could handle playing "legitimately" on normal difficulites, though DmC's hard difficulty, Nephilim, seems more like normal and Son of Sparda from my experience playing the demo wasn't that hard. Metal Gear Rising is sort of like this... Then again, DMC2 was either frustratingly passive to boring easy. Still, those games did have cheap things like falling off the cube in God of War 3 and having to repeat it for about 3 times.

    Metal Gear Solid 3 was basically this. It was my introduction - boot camp - to shooters and their mechanics. Hell, it was where I learned how to use iron sights - I'm serious here. After that, lots of shooters became a breeze except for cheap crap like infinite spawns. I had to backtrack and run circles when I played the oil rig mission in Modern Warfare 2. If you're wondering why I bothered with Call of Duty, it's because I wanted to try it out after being on the Battlefield bandwagon and anti-CoD bandwagon. Frankly, it's a good game and series that anyone could enjoy, which also applies to any game.

    The only games I have yet to be decent at are 2D Mario platformers and top-down view games like 2D Zeldas. 2D games are fine like Muramasa: The Demon Blade and Dragon's Crown are okay, but you have many ways to defend yourself than in Mario which consists of stomping and offensive power-ups. I have never beat a 2D Mario game or 2D platformer I can think of, but I think I did beat the original Contra once. Yeah, when I have weapons, it's all fine and dandy, but when I need to do precision jumping in 2D platformers, I'll either miss or run right into a Goomba. For 2D Zelda-like games, I think it might be the perspective and learning to get used to it.

    Can't say much on RTSes since I don't play a lot of them. RPGs are more of learning the mechanics, stats, where items are, etc. and luck. Yes, luck. Sometimes you can go through an area fine, but the next one might screw with you since random battles are annoying and save spots love to be far and few. That said, many games have RPG elements or are considered RPGs, so it kind of depends on what RPG.

    Ooooooh yeah. I can see what you mean by sewers. They were underground and full of water. Bet they stank, too.

    I think they might count as catacombs...but I can't quite remember if there were any people interred there.

    There is one part, above all others, that makes me bite down hard on the controller, or table, and yank like a rabid dog. The helicopter boss fight.

    I liked the concept of it, but...it was a rather drawn out fight, wasn't it?
