Granted, if you're looking for another quick story involving everyone's favorite half-demon devil hunter Dante, you'll probably enjoy this one. It's got action, it's got plenty of devastating demon dismemberment (try saying that three times fast) and it's got a new female sidekick that has been created for the novel (which was probably one of the only real good aspects of the book).
However, the main problem with this one is that the writer didn't seem to be too enthuised with the project himself. The book hints at plenty of epic fights but the writer only glances over them, never really going into any detail whatsoever about them. It would have been fairly easy for him to trim them out if he wanted and keep the main story going but, instead, he hints at them and never gives the reader the payoff of some epic description of the battles. Granted, this is translated from Japanese text but at least in the first of this book series, we got a fair amount of pretty decent battles to read about involving Dante and his disguised brother.
All in all, DMC 2 is a quick read with some cool artwork, cool characters and some really lacking fight scenes. If you're a fan of the series and you have to own everything baring Devil May Cry, pick it up. But if you want some enlightenment on Dante or a worthy book to the dynamic action of the game series (or anime series, for that matter) this ain't it.
