Of course, I suppose everyone except for me knew that already. Just finished playing it and I'm very happy that this game is much better than Devil May Cry 1 was (which I also played recently). I had practically no issues with the controls, except for one irritating platforming segment near the end of the game, and the camera didn't get in my way. I absolutely loved the combat, with the various styles and weapons at the player's disposal making for a variety of ways for one to tackle battles. I'm kind of disappointed that I stuck with the default style of "Trickster" (even though it seemed like the smartest path to take for a beginner) and if I ever play through it again, I'll be eager to experience a rather significant change in the way I fight by primarily using another style.
The voice acting wasn't horrible, the story wasn't either and I liked the characters (and finishing this game made me wonder why Capcom decided to include Trish in Marvel vs Capcom 3 instead of Vergil). The game was fairly forgiving when playing "Gold" on "Normal" difficulty and, overall, I had a much more pleasant experience than I had with the first DMC. I'm slightly disappointed that playing Vergil doesn't offer a unique story mode, but he still plays differently enough to make it worth it.
