Gameplay is actually the bigger problem with the game but the story is an active detriment and screws up Dante's character to boot

1.5/10

I wanted to give it some credit for at least attempting to do something interesting with Lucia and her personal identity. It's just too bad everyone in this game is voice acted with the enthusiasm of a cardboard cutout, and on top of that, the plain ol' pacing of the story just feels weird too. The villains have absolutely vapid personalities compared to the original and there's no sense of style or urgency or any sort of world building or horror theming - absolutely nothing here. Its place in the series must also be taken into account - DMC2 is barely referenced in the main series and its plot is pretty much a straight rehash of the original game too. It's so disappointing to see no Trish in the story or any further developing of Dante's character. A swing-and-a-miss on more counts than one.

It's so unimportant to the overall plot that where it takes place in the timeline shifted around and it didn't matter.

1/10

I will never not find this excerpt from the "reception" part of the game's Wikipedia page as hilarious as it is baffling:
Play called Lucia's side of the story "a cruel sonnet of self-realization wrapped in a story steeped in religious overtones", stating that the story alone was reason to purchase the game.
