Summary: Was enjoying this game up until I had to "Rappel" across a canyon,this seemed to be more difficult than it really needed to be,and my enjoyment slowly turned to frustration,I like a challenge as much as the next person,but after a while and after many failed attempts to get across to the next rope,I began to get bored,I can't understand why game developers want,or need to make some aspects of the game so difficult that it starts to become tedious rather than...
Excerpt: Dante's Inferno is terrible, when I started playing it, I thought I put Dragon Age in my drive. Unfortunately, I don't like Dragon Age. And quite frankly, this is even worse. The opening cut scene almost made me throw up, the gore is stupid. I can play the goriest of games. (Splatterhouse etc) But this just made me cringe, it shows him pulling his nail out and all the skin is coming off while he's screaming in pain.
Pros: Good graphics, alright sound .
Cons: Boring, short, repetitive and overly gory . Also probably the easiest game I've ever played .
The pen is mightier than the scythe with this one...

Excerpt: Dantes inferno is the first part of Dante Alighieres epic poem "The Divine Comedy", if you get a chance to pick up a copy (along with purgatorio and Paradiso) then please do, it's a fascinating read. Written in the 14th century it tells the storyof Dantes journey through the nine circles of hell, accompanied by the roman poet Virgil. As a computer game if that's not enough to get the gamer juices flowing then I don't know what is!
Dante's Inferno (PS3): Not as divine as its source material
13 October 2010
Excerpt: In 2001 a game called ‘Devil May Cry’ was released to critical acclaim on the Playstation 2. This game was effectively an updated incarnation of the old scrolling beat em up genre. In other words, your aim is to control your character in a third person view and progress through levels in an adventure style setting, but with a heavy emphasis on getting up close and personal with a variety of nasty enemies and doing your best to rip them to pieces en masse.
Pros: Excellent overall presentation, brutal and satisying combat
Cons: Runs out of steam long before the end of the game
Excerpt: What can I say about this marvellous hack and slash game? Lots! It was very enjoyable. We are new to the PS3 console and had played only two other games before this one landed on our door mat. I ordered it on the premise of a good story. For those not familiar with the Dante the title is referring to, the story is loosely based on the poem The Divine Comedy.
Pros: Easy to play, fun to play and beautiful graphics
Cons: Over the top story and no multiplayer function
Excerpt: Long-time purveyors of a conveyor belt culture that has seen a slew of frequently-updated incremental sequels, EA have won back a lot of support recently with a concerted attempt to publish and promote new (and sometimes risky) intellectual properties. Superlative sci-fi horror adventure Dead Space and stylish first-person platformer Mirror’s Edge are testament to this, and they’ve been followed more recently by a video game adaptation that on paper at least, must surely...
Pros: Attractive visuals, responsive controls, good quality of level design, a couple of great bosses
Cons: Extremely short, only mild replay - value, upgrades mean it feels less challenging as you progress
Conclusion: I've never been so bored doing the same bits over & over again. The game is just so difficult even on the second up from easy. I've played plenty of similar games with no problems (Darksiders, Batman). Yes the graphics are good but what's the point when the gameplay bores you to tears. I don't think I even have the patience to carry on playing.
Summary: First of I have to say that I love hack n slay games. I recently finished Darksiders. That game was quite a surprise, I expected it to be way more one sided, but it captured my attention until I got the platinum trophy. After that I finished God Of War 3 on titan mode, to get my platinum trophy here as well. So you can tell that I am someone who likes a challenge. But this game simply get's annoying. Especially at the end.
Summary: after looking forward to this game for a long time i was disappointed. there was no variation at the times when you use your button combination for a finisher move, if you were to miss a button it would always be the same every time. eventhough this game was visually impressive and highly imaginitive it will never be comparable to the God of War series. in many ways it seems as though they were trying to imitate God of War but unfortunately it failed in my opinion.
