Rated 10 out of 10 by jakedarkman best game ever!!!!!!!!!!!
This game is a great game.It is about a man named dante who after cheating on his wife while at war comes home only to find his wife and father dead then he chases her soul into the pits of hell.There are so many good things about this game lets start with the challenge it is fantastic for you will have to figure things out all the time and some times it can be very difficult.The controls are great throught the entire game I had no trouble with tthe controls.The grapics were my favorite part of the game for they look so real and frightning at times.The interface was great..The length was great for a modern day game for it was about seven hours which is pretty long compared to some games.The sound was fantastic at all times for I could here even the smallest scream from one of the cursed.Now the storyline was another great thing about this game for you understand everything and it all unravels at the end.I would give this game a ten and reccomend this game to anyone who wants a good time
Rated 7 out of 10 by Nubtanx Dante's Inferno, a definite rental game.
Dante's Inferno presents the gamer with a piece of Dante's "The Divine Comedy", and brings the gamer into Hell where they must experience the nine circles of Hell in order to save Dante's beloved Beatrice. The game itself is very accurate at depicting each circle of Hell and brings a fairly good story itself, and it is not that all repetitive as each circle presents the gamer with something entirely new. This is perhaps what both makes the game as well as breaks it. The game is very focused on giving the gamer every last detail of the nine circles of Hell and does not present the gamer with a more in depth story, and the combat presents no more if not less than what God of War offers. The games challenges and puzzles are not at all puzzling. The game is also very short, it takes about 7 hours to beat the game. This game presents no actual replay value whatsoever. It is simply a "beat it and never touch it again" game. it is far better to save $* and just rent this game.
Rated 10 out of 10 by Jono0055 Amazing take on the original epic poem!
I really love the creative imagination the artists had to recreate Dante's epic poem, "Inferno" from "Dante's Divine Comedy" from the 14th century. The graphics are visually stunning and each circle of the Inferno is done with remarkable believability as described in Dante's writing. My only complaint is that the game-play is short. It only took me 7 1/2 hours to beat the game the first time playing it. Once you beat the game, you can enter "Resurrection Mode" where you can play the main part of the game again with all your powers intact and collect things you missed along the way the first time. Playing the game gives you many options, Holy or Unholy, along the way to choose from making each person's gaming experience unique. I'd give the ease of controlling the character an 8/10 as there are some spots where he doesn't jump very well or gets "stuck" on objects. Overall, I would definitely recommend this game and give it a 10/10 for story and graphics.
Rated 0 out of 10 by Sqigley Looks pretty good.
I played the demo, and I'm gonna start off saying yes, it basically plays almost exactly like GOW did. You've got your strong attacks, quick attacks, jumping, magic spells, many combos, dodging with the right stick, and countering your enemies after a well timed block. You also get your grabs through which you can finish off enemies via a few different gruesome kills. Add to that the button prompts and there you go, Dante's Inferno a la GOW. The main difference here is going to be the story. It is based on the poem of the same name and the game changes a few things, like the fact that Dante is fighting at all. That aside, the gameplay is still fun and engaging; It's still fun to slice through multitudes of enemies and demolish the bigger, more vicious ones. If you enjoyed the GOW games, you'll probably like this. It plays very similarly, and sports the updated graphics, sound, and effects that come with the generation gap between the two games.
Rated 10 out of 10 by Nitachi... Great game, but short
Ok when I seen this game I had no idea what it was about and I thought it was G.O.W. knock off. But then I decided to purchase this game when my other game was sold out. So i brought it home and fell in love with it. This game is good all around the storyline is great I loved it, the graphics where beautiful gameplay and cinematics, the only thing that brought this game down was the length of this game. The length of this game reminded me of the length of Star Wars The Force Unleashed. Cause that game was great just like this but to short for me. I like games that take a little while to beat and you can run though them more then once without feeling to strong or overpowered (not saying it's bad to feel that way like in the orginal Fable) But overall this game kept me content for six hours and then i got bord with it. but the storyline and the graphics is what makes me rate this game so high. I like sotrylines so this one really was a good one...
Rated 4 out of 10 by Fish It's Just a Spastic, Below-Avarage, Hack and Slash
Dante's Inferno actually sounds like it would be a cool game. I was skeptical how the epic poem would translate onto a video game (of course the developers screwed it up) and was eager to see how it all came together.
Well, it didn't. To begin, I love hack-and-slash games. Ninja Gaiden did it right, God of War did it right, Devil May Cry did it right. Dante's Inferno really felt nowhere close to as good as those games. The combat has very poor force feedback, lacks fluidity, and has some pretty bad camera angles. It really feels cheap when you only have to use ONE move to obliterate every enemy in the game. There really isn't fair challenge here. I can't see how people get to the end of this game without shutting off their console out of sheer boredom.
And one note about the graphics. Playing Dante's Inferno on anything that isn't a nice High Definition TV is going to be almost impossible. Everything is tiny and unreadable on a Standard Def TV
Rated 7 out of 10 by a dev Pretty Sweet, But....
..Annoying. The game is solid, graphics amazing, controls are good. The ONLY thing about the game I can't stand is how annoyingly difficult it is. Often, you will find yourself mobbed by these lady things that dodge everything you do, interrupt your actions (but when you're hitting them their actions are not interrupted,) and have attacks you can't dodge or block. I am playing on the hardest difficulty, so that may be why, but still, most of the time thus far into the game has been redoing fights again and again and again and again until I happen to get lucky enough to kill everything... I have found the sacred quake gets rid of them w/o me being hit too often, but it takes forever, LoL. Then, when you have to fight a group of these ladies with a mini-boss.. whew.. I've been in one part now for.. hmm.. not even sure how many hours. The story is great, everything else is great. Devs did a fantasic job creating what Dantes hell would look like.
Rated 9 out of 10 by GamerJock14 Great game.
I got this game about a week ago, and I got to say, ITS AN AWESOME GAME. I highly recommend this game, especially if you are a fan of God of War. Some people say that Dantes Inferno is only a rip-off version of God of War. Trust me, its not. I've played God of War before, and this game is way better. The graphics are incredible, the storyline is just amazing, the things I did not like about this game is the amount of nudity and the length. I really do not get the point of putting so much nudity in the game. I expected it to show nudity once or twice, but its pretty constant. Id say in the first... 4 circles of hell. The rest are pretty low on that. And then the length of the game is pretty short. I beat the game in about 10 hours. I wasn't very disappointed because after you beat the game, you unlock different styles to play the game. And theres also the 'Trials Of St. Lucia' Add on coming soon, and I am really excited for that. So, yes. I highly recommend this game, BUT FOR APPROPRIATTE AUDIENCES. From about 16 years of age and up.
Rated 0 out of 10 by That one guy, you know... Some minor corrections...
Kurtastrophy: It's the Divine Comedy, not tragedy. It was written in Italian and therefore was a comedy by the standings of that time. Also, perhaps, Virgil shows up in gameplay. His most plausible role would be as a guide helping you work your way through hell. After all, this was a promo clip, and they aren't going to show him talking with Virgil, they're going to show him killing stuff. (Also, they showed Limbo in another clip I saw, and the people there aren't as nice as they were in the original Inferno) Despite the above; I personally think this game will be awesome. As said in other previews, this could be a compelling story-line in which you get to fight hell's greatest. The only problem is that if he's killing people in hell, where do they go. Also, there is no way people will want to play this game's sequel: Dante's Purgatorious -- yeah, that's definitely going to sell as an action game. My main hope for this game is the prospect of killing some demons. God of War rocked, but you didn't get to be in Hell. This will be cool.
