Devil May Cry 2 Does it ruin the collection?

I am mildly interested in purchasing this collection but the only thing that's stopping from buying it is Devil May Cry 2. I'm not one to base my opinion on reviewers but since I'm not to familiar with the series from what I can tell everybody hated this game. So I have to ask for somebody who's only played the 4th game and is not a fan of the series will I be wasting my money if I buy this collection because of this game? Feel free to leave opinions and even a mini-review since it seems the game is already out in stores. (or for people who've played the original)

Devil May Cry 1 and 3 are brilliant games and it's worth buying the collection just for those two. If you want to 1000 the game though going through DMC2 will be a chore because it's shit. I never actually finished it on the PS2 because it was so bad.

Regardless of 2, the HD collection is a pretty damn good deal. 3 games for I believe its $40? I loved 1 and 3... 2 isn't the greatest (and I also wasn't a huge fan of 4). But you're still getting at least two awesome games you're likely to love! You could always rent it, play 1 and 3 and skip 2... if you really wanted to. I love DMC, so it was a must-buy for me.

You would be wasting your money on the new one being released.

The games you get in this collection are easily worth the $40 it costs. I'd say getting 2 as well doesn't ruin the collection.

Well 2 isn't as bad as I remember. It just takes a different direction but I actually enjoyed it more this time around for some reason. Your best bet if your not sure is to rent it.

DMC2 isn't too bad if you're playing Dante. It obviously doesn't stand up to 1 or 3 but it's playable. I'd rather have 1, 2 and 3 than just 1 and 3 tbh. Why would you choose not to have an extra game for free?

If 4 was the letdown in the series then I guess I don't have much to worry about then since I enjoyed 4 for what it was worth.

Anyway thanks for everyones opinions I'm now more than likely going to buy the collection now.

I think 3 ruins the collection. It is amazing. It makes the first 2 games look like garbage.

I personally enjoyed 1, 3, & 4. Not too fond of 2 I think it was too much of a peice of cake. Got through DMD on Dante and Lucia in way less time than on 1, 3, & 4.

I don't think it ruins the collection, but that doesnt mean I think its good. I honestly think its just a really poor game, but I don't think it would deter me from recommending the collection to someone else.
