Hands on impressions of God Of War 3 and Dante's Inferno from the Eurogamer Expo 2009.
PS3 owners get to play both. 360 owners . . .
Infamous vs Prototype all over again. Too bad 360 owners, too bad.
get the shameless me-too rip off
As I expected, God Of War is the better game, although what did people expect? Exclusive games always look better than multiplatform games
so it begins.. another prototype vs infamous fiasco.. we know how that one turned out..
It turned 10 of course
I dont like new IP vs Epic IP Its like Qauntam Thoery vs GeOW franchise. The already established IP has already proved itself. No need to compare the new IP to something that already has shown its potential. Once the game comes out, then come out with the comparisions. Comparing games now is just plain lame imo. Dante's Inferno is a new IP, give it some space.
skv007, EA wont discourage the comparisons, simply because Dante is privelidged to stand in the same room as GoW. But in the end of the day, all GoW clones are inferior to GoW, and that goes for DMC, NG and Bayonetta too.
"Overall, this definitely feels like and plays like a God of War game, and from what I played, it definitely is superior to Dante's Inferno in many ways. However, be sure to look out for both games, because both of them will be a lot of fun." Hmm, I don't like that "however" word in there...from Eurogamer that usually means God of War is getting a 7 and Dante's Inferno is getting an 8.
Mash button combos, or mash button combos? Just joking to all fans, but I find hack n' slash games too boring and repetitive to enjoy.
the first release of Devil May Cry was in 2001 the first release of God of War was in 2005 therefore DMC is not 'another' clone! and what about Darksiders ?? that seems similar to the both of them->(Dante's inferno, GOW3) anyway, i'm getting them all cause they're all gonna be awesome :) good time to be a gamer i say!
Thats why I made the destinction of mentioning it separately from the clones.
I can imagine this situation: Reviewer: GoW3 It's more of the same. It's like GoW2 HD. 70/100 Dantes I Incredibly fun game. Its Gothic style is impressive. 80/100
We need a full blown Article comparison!!!ASAP We want the specs the graphics comparison the game play the length!!! If you want to challenge the GOW series bring it on!!! Same for Forza and GT5. I want to know which has more Polygons, which is more epic , more large Scale, best animations ,physics engine,load times, HD??,720p, FPS? Just For taking so Damn long on GOW3, this game better be worth the wait if not, Dante has a new place in my home!!!
This game is good only for xbox owners, you know more variety is better but Playstation owners know what game is better since last gen XP
lol why? just get a ps3
"The first thing I noticed was that graphically, this was much better looking than Dante's Inferno, everything was just that little bit sharper and there weren't as many aliasing issues"
Dante's is good, good enough to get both :P
I'm probably getting both anyway, but GOW3 is probably the better game, due to it's epicness.
OMG NOOO!!! This is so stupid. Why must people make these stupid comparisons? The two games can co-exist. You don't have to compare anything. You can enjoy both.
Or I can compare them and figure out which I rather get. People who b!tch and moan about things being compared need to grow up and realize comparisons are a part of life. Menthol vs. regular, Chronic vs. Stress, Water vs. Gateraid, ect. Just because something is compared doesn't mean they can't coexist. If they want money, you and them need to be ready for comparison to a similar product.
If you are a fan of hack and slash, and own a ps3 then there is no debate which is better. Just buy both because we know GOW3 will be insanely epic and Visceral is a good developer from EA.
PS3 exclusives vs. Multiplat. yea, no contest, GOWIII will destroy any 360 exclusive, multiplats have even less of a chance.
The bots are going to come out and say Dantes Infernos better ....
Why would i want a God Of War knock off when i can get the real thing this coming march? oh, i forgot that bots can't play this...lol
"which although at least" Jesus Christ...
They gave us a great horror game aka Dead Space. I hope that Dante's Inferno will do great, but I love GOW more and I side with it if compared.
VG should at least TRY to be more original with Dante Inferno. Deadspace was criticized slightly for that too, but was largely forgiven thanks to the fantastic and original atmosphere. There were some innovative touches too, i love the zero HUD system and the spinal hp bar thingy. Might give it a go in the end, but the release date is too close to GOW3 for me.
I pity 360 owners who can't experience the superior action game GOW3. Not like they have any choice to begin with anyways.
dantes inferno pwnds everything is better: music, gameplay,story etc. and dante is more more brutal then crapkratos.
Not surprising, bots ALWAYS fail.
Well it should remind you of GoW. GoW's lead level designer is working on their team.
well now, that's assuring. LOL
Oh I guess that explains why the HUD is exactly the same, the moves similar, and the qte events are identical right?
If you have a PS3, buy both. If you have a 360, buy Dante's Inferno. If you can't play God of War 3 because you don't have a PS3, it's unfortunate. Both of these games are going to be really good. Should it really matter what one is going to destroy the other? I'll be playing and enjoying both, like most everyone should.
Comparing Dante's Inferno to God of War is an insult to GOW, come on! I am not saying that Dante's Inferno looks bad or is going to be bad, but GOW is just so EPIC, I mean, this was the game that switched me to PS2, and I hated that console, I used to be an xbox fanboy badly. You just can't compared them just because if GOW didn't exist, Dante's Inferno wouldn't exist either, It is just a ripoff, even a developer admitted it. (I will find the link, it was an interview)
InFamous, Prototype, Dantes Inferno, God of War 3. Ahh, feels very good to be an PS3 owner :) Trey 4 Life.
dante inferno is only in hell Kratos the god of war goes to hell and back and slays freaking gods and titans. he shoots lightning bolts from his ars and fireballs from his freaking eyes and hes the sun of zeues. Nothing matches god of war nothing. i hope in gow3 you fight or team up with hercules.
I knew this was going to happen. Just like Infamous.
Check out footage for both from yesterday: www.youtube.com/AliTheBrit19
Words are cheap www.youtube.com/AliTheBrit19 Footage for both of them, filmed by me yesterday, I also got a play on both, God of War III is deffinately the better game people. Dante's Inferno is a rent.
