Needs Improvement

grady , GameStop

  • Summary: Dante's Inferno may seem like a game that copies off other franchises, but the at least the story is pretty unique. The story is basically, your girlfriend, Beatress is killed and stolen away from you and you are trying to get her back, simple enough. He!! isnt a pretty place, and the developers make it look very disgusting and evil, though the enviroments do tend to get a little tuff on the eyes.

The Sin of Mediocrity

Jon Gregory, Game Informer
24 March 2012
  • Summary: Like hell itself Dante's Inferno resurects God of War as a skeletal thrall, but builds something around it that is, quite simply, missing the soul that its source of inspiration exudes with every step. What is created seems more like a mercifully short trip into doldrums than the fiery circls of the underworld. What may be even more of a shame is that the game starts with promise.

Dante's Inferno Review

BranSolo, Amazon
27 December 2011
  • Summary: This game is visually very beautiful, and the story is great as well. The animation clips are a nice break from normal game play, and are again, very beautiful. However, the transitions between normal game play and 'past sins' are choppy. The game itself is much like God of War, with several magic spells to unlock, and several combo moves. In many ways, it's a ride in which you must mash buttons to see the next chapter. Worth a play through for sure.

Boring

jbl8199 , GameStop

  • Summary: The concept of the game was a good idea, but it gets really repetitive real quick. After the first couple levels not much changes. Try to think of this as a lame version God of War(if that's even possible). The gameplay is similar, but your main character severely lacks personality. Not to mention after the first few levels you're pretty much fighting the same enemies excluding the bosses. I got about halfway through the game and sold it.

Great Gameplay, Lame Otherwise

nezuro , GameStop

  • Summary: I found this game really disappointing. The levels are large and diverse, the gameplay is fantastic hack-and-slash with style, and the graphics are quality - but the game's just stupid. The entire story line is based on themes Gamestop deems as "inappropriate language", if you catch my drift. It was pathetic. I quickly grew tired of the groaning, convulsing bodies pinned to the walls and the demonic babies with razor hands stumbling around to attack me.

A missed Opportunity

M. Bartlett, Amazon
8 July 2010
  • Summary: I'd seen that this game had fairly average reviews, but I was so intruiged by the atmosphere of the game that I bought it anyway. The first few levels are pretty good and creative, but then the levels seem very similar and the game just gets a bit boring. Though there is an abilities tree, you'll probably end up using a couple of moves that are effective in every situation. Not to be too harsh, but the game just seemed uninspired (oddly).

Dante's Inferno: God of War Lite

db, Amazon
24 April 2010
  • Summary: Dante's Inferno seemed like a bad idea to me until I realized that the poem its based on is about as much myth as the Greek gods are, which makes it about as good idea as Kratos going on a warpath for and against varying gods. That said, this game is not nearly as much fun. The God of War series is always pushing the boundaries on what they do within the framework/gameplay of their genre, but this game seems to be treading water, always just above the line saying, "See,...

All Flame No Game

JoeP , GameStop
4 March 2010
  • Summary: I bought this game because the trailer looked awesome and when you first start to play it, it is pretty cool. This game had a lot of potential as you travel through hell to save your one true love. But after you play through the first few levels, then it starts to come across as shampoo instructions- lather, rinse, repeat. As the "bosses" are quite interesting and present a challenge, the hard part to bare is the semi-boredom that occurred getting to those points.

Good but Short

D. Faydel "Gogonjdevil", Amazon
4 March 2010
  • Summary: To call this a God of War ripoff would be an understatement. However, that's not necessarily a bad thing. Sometimes when you take something great and copy it it works;. For the most part, Dante's Inferno works. However it's INCREDIBLY short and, mind you I am a guy and I have no problem with gratuitous nudity, however the nudity in this game is WAAAY over the top. God of War does it right...Dante's Inferno just goes for shock value. The graphics are ok..
