I'm planning on buying DMC 1 and 3 and skipping DMC 2 because I've heard it's not too great.  But buying the $30 5th anniversary set is cheaper than buying just 1 and 3.  So, if I do that, do I:

1. Throw away/eBay DMC 2 or
2. Play it

From what I understand, part 3 is a prequel, so it doesn't seem that not having played 2 would cause any problems understanding the story.

It's really bad.

So bad, I'd recommend not playing it at all and somehow ebaying or just toss it.

Here's a short list:

No story.  DMC1 at least had a small story, but DMC2 makes DMC1's story look like Charles Dickens in comparison.  The DMC2 story is a few nonsensical one liners between characters that pose around.  I wish I was exhaggerating here, but that's actually all it was.  There's this one point in the game where Dante first meets the big bad guy in what could have been a great massive confrontation, instead, Dante just spouts one line that's supposed to sound cool, and in non sequiter, the villian just says, "No, I guess not."  Then he summons some random demon for you to fight and disapears.

The combat was way too easy.  DMC1 was difficult, yes, but going to easy helped if you couldn't handle it.  In DMC2, the normal mode was easier than DMC1s easy mode.  There was no need to do all those fancy moves they gave you since all you had to do to win was simple attacks.

So the combination of gameplay that was a pushover, and a lack of a plot to hold your interest means there's no reason to play it at all.

This reminds me, I need to go back to DMC1, I got sidetracked.  I think I want a previous save though, with Easy Mode off, man it was stupid when I switched to easy mode.
