Storyline

2,000 years ago the human world was ruled over by the demon world. However, one of the demons, the legendary dark knight Sparda, awoke to justice and defeating the evil emperor Mundus sealed the demon world away from the human world. He then sealed his own darkest powers away (fearing he would become a threat to the humans himself) and assumed a human form, living among the humans, and for 2000 years he preserved the harmony of the worlds. Eventually Sparda fell in love with a human woman called Eva and had twin half blood sons, Dante and Vergil. However, Sparda died, and shortly after, Eva was killed in a demon attack that separated the two sons. Hating the demons for taking away his mother and his brother from him, Dante becomes a demon hunter and continues his fathers work, seeking revenge. 20 years on, Dante is called to Mallet island on a job, and comes face to face with an ancient enemy of his fathers.

Loved the character of Dante, just certain aspects of the game I did not like.
2 July 2007 | by Aaron1375See all my reviews

I liked how the story started out, and I liked the character of Dante right away. A dude with a big sword and dual guns, what isn't there to like? The fighting was rather fast and furious too, so what exactly are my complaints exactly? Well I did not care for the setting for one thing. The game starts out in a regular city, in a back alley and almost immediately shifts to an old castle. I don't know, Dante fit the city better, I would have enjoyed fighting in a more urban environment instead of the old Gothic one. Then there are the enemy characters...they are not all that different from one another. You have maybe four or five types you fight throughout the game and then the bosses. I need a bit more variety to be honest. Then there are the pointless underwater scenes I did not care for either. The game is also hard, so hard I had to play on easy which was to easy. Still, the game was fun as controlling Dante was fun and the fighting fun. I loved getting the grenade launcher late in the game. The story was okay, like I said I would have rather used this character in the city, granted there it would have been a bit like "Constantine", but hey that would be good in my book. So it is a good enough challenge and rather fun, I just hope the sequels are better.
