The beginning of it all... When I think about
the first few game footage I saw on gametrailers
I feel so nostalgic. Along with mission 1's
cutscenes, this short mission's gameplay footage
is what immediately and greatly attracted me
to the game, and what eventually 'made' me buy
the game... and the PlayStation 2. ^_^"
Short and straight forward, I like how it's
a great start to introducing players to the
This is definitely another one of the most enjoyable
missions in the game. A battle consisting entirely
of Hell enemies, it's a great mission for people
to practice combos and styles on. The one thing
that annoys me is the number of annoying Hell
Lusts. They should have just put in more Sloths
Mission 3 was a memorable mission. Everyone
remembers that strip bar, don't they? =P And
that long alleyway that leads to our very first
real boss battle. =) Yes, Cerberus is the boss
(excluding Vergil) that left the biggest impression
in me. He is a great first boss, especially
one who is intimidating. Even now, this is still
one of my top favorite missions in the game.
A couple of compulsory battles and a boss. Not
all that bad, but I fear this mission on DMD
mode. I still remember the trauma when I got
killed by 3 enigmas in 2 seconds. NOT pleasant.
As many compulsory battles as mission 4, but
the elevator part was annoying in DMD mode.
Somehow I just can't get the enemies off the
elevator, or kill them, before it got too heavy
and goes back down. Oh my god, the annoyance!!
Not exactly a favorite, but it's pretty good
for your FIRST TIME, I suppose, with the one
tiny puzzle and a tough fight (or none).
This was my favorite mission for a while. It's
long, but it's got many Hells to fight against,
so it's a good time to practice, mostly apply,
combos on them. Besides, this is the first mission
where you fight against Vergil and for a first
time, everything about this mission is total
sweetness. The cutscenes before and after the
Vergil battle are just so damn cool, it's impossible
for anyone not to be impressed.
This reminds me, and I'm sure many others, much
of the last few missions in DMC1. I'm almost
pretty sure it's made as a sort of 'tribute'
to that. It's amazing how Dante could walk about
and explore inside the flying whale that ate
him, and even eventually kill it, but heck,
the boss battle in this mission is pretty fun,
and it's easy to pwn it. XD
Not really a favorite mission. I'm not a fan
of Arachnes since I can't/don't really know
how to do fancy combos or the sort on them.
I dislike the dullahans as well cos' they're
just boring. There's also a lot of traveling
to do here, but fighting Nevan for the first
time isn't all too bad.
Another all right mission.
Not bad. Beowulf is the only boss that took
only one try for me to beat, so I was really
happy and surprised, cos' he looked
so intimidating in the first few trailers/cutscenes
that I saw. In the easier modes, dealing with
Soul Eaters doesn't seem too annoying but in
DMD mode, they get SOO on my nerves! So I do
quite hate that corridor where they lurk. >_>
This mission was quite annoying for a start.
I had to use a couple of vital stars just to
clear the first part where your health keeps
depleting. And then I have to face that damn
donkey. Even now I still don't like that horse,
even tho' design and idea-wise I think he's
really cool. The cutscene with Vergil and Beowulf
at the end is sweet too. Awesome stuff. And
oh, I had the worst experience in this
mission using Vergil.
Awesome awesome ending cutscene. It's the longest
cutscene in the game, and one of the coolest
as well. Great battle with Vergil too.
A nightmare in DMD mode. It's not as bad when
using Vergil but with Dante, dealing with the
Fallens is blood-boiling, not to mention all
the other enemies that you have to face with
after that. I will NEVER EVER want to go through
The mission with the most traveling
time. For people who like puzzles, I guess this
is a fun mission, but I don't, so I don't really
care. It's a cool concept with the changing
rooms and stuff, but I really hate to travel
over too long a distance. >_> I hate the
stupid rolling blades on the ground too. I remember
trying to jump over them in Heaven or Hell mode
WITHOUT using Trickster (since I do not touch
anything but Swordmaster back then). It was
Not Heaven But Hell.
Quite a long mission. Once again, I hate fighting
the Fallens, and I hate to climb up the rocky
area and up the ceiling in the room with the
Enigmas and Blood Goyles. Urgh! Oh, I think
Lady as a boss is a nice idea. =)
The moving cubes room took me a while on my
first time! I actually nearly gave up and referred
to a walkthrough but I was too lazy to do that
so I didn't. LOL The Doppelganger fight wasn't
all that bad either, altho' I'm sad to admit
that I've peeked at a bit of hints before I
tried battling him myself >_>
Hahaha! You'll be surprised, or not, to hear
that I totally skipped the chessboard battle
when I first played this! I forgot why I did
it but the moment I saw so many enemies, I took
out a Holy Water and they all died. LOL!! Well
the King was activated then, that's why I passed
it in an instant, but man... That was funny.
And then the place where you have to fight several
bosses shocked me. I totally didn't expect there'll
be a mission that expects you to fight more
than 1 boss in a row. =_= Not exactly a favorite
mission but still it's a cool one.
I actually quite like this mission even though
I don't like the mirror room and the hourglass
room with the Abyss. The mirror room is just
stupid and the hourglass room is really
hard for me in DMD mode. I really have
to use at least ONE Holy Water to ever pass
it. Arkham's battle is all right but not a favorite,
which means I only really like the first Abyss
Aaaahhh.... The best battle of them all. I know
many would argue that he's predictable after
a couple plays and stuff but heck, whatver you
guys say I think he's fun. XD Vergil battle
3 is the only battle in which I'd really use
royalguard and although I'm no master at it
it's just fun. It's all for the fun, what else?
^_^ Epic battle, epic music. Damn. What else
do we need?!
