Summary: I really wanted to like this game. I was itching to play a quality hack and slash like god of war and saw some positive reviews for this game. Sadly I was disappointed by the overall experience. Gameplay: It's your basic hack and slash full of combos, a leveling system that allows to you unlock more moves and some spells that you gradually gain as you progress.
Summary: I read Dante's Inferno in college so I decided to give the game a shot. The game has very beautiful graphics. The game uses a fixed camera which annoys some people but it did not bother me at all. The 2-D cinematic scenes were looked great. The story was compelling but altered a bit to suit a hack and slash game. The main reason this game is not a 4 or 5 star game is because of the game play experience. There is little to no variation in the combos.
Summary: Title says it all. The fighting is a lot like Ninja Gaiden but there are a lot of little tasks and puzzles you have to do that usually take exact timing. And for the average person, it's impossible to do these tasks on the first try. You have to do these stupid tasks and puzzles over and over and over and over and over again, often restarting way before said task, with several mobs to fight before you can even get back to this stupid annoying task.
Summary: No SPOILERS. This is not a "bad" game (my review is really 3.5 stars, but that's not possible here). Five years ago, this game could have been all the rage. But it's horribly derivative now. But if this was just a God-of-War knockoff, that would be okay - nothing wrong with going with what's good. Problem is, it's not. It's nowhere near as good, even after being later in time. Unless you're a DIE HARD for this genre (GOW, Devil May Cry, Rygar anyone?
Summary: Really wanted to like this game but alas this is no God of war clone i can recommend .I don't know what it is exactly but nah, nope and not on your nelly is this a great game. If your looking for a great GOW clone try Castlevania Lord of Shadows totally epic and well realized .
Summary: I must admit I am not a huge gamer, but like the idea of the mythology/literary influence on this game. Whilst the plot is interesting, I wasn't a fan of the style - a beat 'em up with some RPG. The graphics and general atmosphere of the game is phenomenal but the feel was not quite right, therefore I didn't get too far into it, perhaps a bias review!
Summary: Dante's Inferno is primarily an action-adventure fighting game played from a third-person view - similar to Devil May Cry or Bayonetta - with platforming and environment-based puzzles thrown in to break up some of the levels. You control Dante, armed with Death's scythe a Holy Cross that fires a volley of energy as a projectile attack, and magic based attacks, you must journey through the nine circles of Hell to reclaim the soul of your beloved Beatrice from the hands of...
Summary: Visceral live up to their namesake as we're sent on a blood soaked trawl through the nine circles of hell in the videogame adaption of Dante's Divine Comedy. Calling it an adaption is quite inaccurate and could give the wrong impression that this game aims to be considered high art, however with the combat heavy focus and no real dedication to the poem's narrative it should be more considered as an "inspired by the events of....
Summary: I was expecting a full-on God of War clone when I received Dante's Inferno for Christmas. That's not a bad thing. God of War is an excellent franchise and, being PS-exclusive, it makes sense that someone would want to convert that to the XBox bandwagon. At first it seemed it was going to deliver on this front. It's got a very fluid fighting system and scores of enemies to fight through, and it's got epic scale battles with epic scale enemies.
Summary: I typically don't convince myself to game reviews when not having finished a game. This one is a bit different since there is a chance I might not see its end. Not because it's a hard game but I'm slowly loosing point and reason to continue. Currently clocking at about 6 hours and the end of the game seems near, if I can trust the walkthroughs. Rewind ... not writing about the story here, other reviews do a much better job ... just leaving a brief opinion.
