Dante's Inferno

Strategy Informer
2 July 2010
  • Conclusion: Dante's Inferno isn't amazing, but it's a decent enough game. Solid and un-assuming, it's different enough to warrant the purchase, especially for 360 owners who wouldn't necessarily have access to the likes of God of War. It doesn't try to pretend that it's different, it just takes an already workable formula and applies it a classic and conceptually rich piece of literature.

  • Summary: Dante’s Inferno is a difficult game to score. In terms of gameplay, Visceral Games did a solid job creating some well-worn but enjoyable button mashing. Despite being a mostly entertaining experience for the eight hours it lasts, several circles of Hell – Greed in particular – demonstrate terrible platforming and lackluster level design. However, problems with the gameplay don’t come close to matching the stupidity of the story.

Dante's Inferno: The Trials of St. Lucia (DLC)

Digital Chumps
3 May 2010
  • Conclusion: The Trials of St. Lucia is a robust and very worthwhile DLC release for a great game. If you are into challenge arenas, you couldn't ask more. It'll be interesting to see where Visceral and EA take Dante and St. Lucia from here.

Dante's Inferno: Divine Edition

Gaming Evolution
24 March 2010
  • Conclusion: If you are deciding whether or not to buy this game- consider this entirely hypothetical scenario: Suppose you had a favorite band. You love them dearly and have all of their albums- you’ve listened to them so much you have their entire discography memorized by heart. Now suppose something like a cover band comes along that looks and sounds EXACTLY like they do. The key difference is they are singing songs you haven’t heard before.

Dante's Inferno (PS3) - Review

VGChartz
24 February 2010
  • Excerpt: By now, it is common knowledge that just about anything is susceptible to being made into a videogame. Therefore it was only a matter of time until we were playing games based on epic poetry such as the Inferno. Developed by Visceral Games, Dante’s Inferno is the re-imagining of Dante Alighieri’s influential work as a violent hack and slash.

  • Excerpt: Electronic Arts' Dante's Inferno is a bloody and frenzied action game first, and a literary lesson last. Why last? Well, as you're about to find out, the game and book share very little in common, apart from a few names and scenarios. In fact, EA has taken liberties in writing their own version of the story, and thus we have the game. Now, before we continue, do note that Dante's Inferno isn't a game that brings anything new to the table.

Dante's Inferno Review

PlayStation Universe
18 February 2010
  • Summary: Dante's Inferno offers little new to a genre dominated by franchises like God of War, yet it's graphical depiction of Hell helps create an interesting, and entertaining experience. As a game that took an awful lot of liberties with the original story, more liberties should have been taken with the gameplay to set it apart from its competitors.
  • Pros: The brilliant visual depiction of Hell, The holy vs. unholy leveling system, The mature elements, both in the subject and presentation
  • Cons: The lack of originality in the gameplay, The repetitive combat that only feels challenging towards the end of the game, The fact other games did what Dante's Inferno tried to do better

Dante's Inferno Review

AtomicGamer
16 February 2010
  • Excerpt: There's no question that video games can teach us things, but they mostly teach us things like “how to take cover when someone's shooting at you” or “whenever you hear radio static, the zombies are coming”. Rarely do they take on something as heavy as epic medieval poetry, but Dante's Inferno , EA's new action/adventure title, has guts. (Sometimes literally.
