IGN UK: Dante's Inferno Review

Dante's Inferno misses the mark in almost every way. It's dated, uninspired, repetitive, clumsy and almost totally forgettable. But - and this is a big but - there absolutely is fun to be had from Visceral's superb fighting engine and, truthfully, the simple act of hitting things until they explode is a pleasant enough distraction. That's going to be more than enough for the less discerning, more forgiving player, particularly with multiple difficulty settings to tantalise with further grasps for perfection. Anyone else, however, should quite reasonably demand more.

ouch...thank god for gow3!

Not God. Unless SMS IS God! :O

Besides, Kratos may kill you.

I have the demo still lying around and I should really download it already (though every MB costs me extra money since I went over my internet usage).

Is the code shareable?

LordMarius2819d ago (Edited 2819d ago )

This is just the appetizer guys
and as you know just no one pays $60 for it, so just rent it and give thanks that God of War 3 exists

Yes thank God for creating Santa Monica.......

IGN UK - "Sadly, aside from its excellent combat system, Dante’s Inferno misses the mark in almost every way."

IGN - "Unfortunately, some derivative combat sequences and a shallow combo system prevent the title from becoming a truly great experience."

Dang IGN!! I guess EA should have lined some wallets with some of that greenery to get at least a 8/10. LOL We all know it has been done before. Look we know this game is a clone. There are only like 1 or 2 games a year that are originals. Heck I am getting this and GOW III. Hack and slash is always fun. If i want my world to be changed I play games like Mass Effect 2.

Saaking2819d ago

It's always been just a rental. God Of war III is the real thing adn nothing can replace it.

SilentNegotiator2819d ago

I'm sort of on edge of whether to buy it or not, now. If I do, I'll get the Ps3 version since it comes with the Soundtrack, art book, etc; at least that would soften the blow if it's a bit disappointing.

-Alpha2819d ago

Doesn't that cost an extra $10?

DatNJDom812819d ago

Game looks good. Since when is 7 a bad score?

DaTruth2819d ago (Edited 2819d ago )

"Bu, bu, bu, but, is teh solid 60 fps and better than GoW3."

@Above: 7 is not a bad score; But 7's and 10's cost the same amount of money! There are a lot of 9+'s for both consoles this year!

BYE2818d ago

Wow, that's surprising...

I wasn't exactly hyped about this but still expected it to do much better!

GOW >>>>>>> Devil May Cry > NG > Dante's Inferno >>>>> Bayonetta.

There fixed!

I dont care how many combos bayonetta can do, everything is so fukcing cheezy. That music still gives me nightmares....... sometimes over the tops isn't so good.

-Mezzo-2819d ago

DAMN, i was really looking forward to this game but i think i'll get it anyway just for the sake of good story.

Hakimy2819d ago

I guess that settled it.for the 3 new comers in 2010 the order is like this:
3-Dante's Inferno

Nakiro2819d ago

Personally I would put Darksiders above Bayonetta, but that's just me..

MmaFanQc2819d ago

3-Dante's Inferno

danielle0072819d ago

She has actual combos, is hilarious, and witch time is fun. Everything is so hectic and over the top, it's ahmazing. She makes Kratos feel terribly fat. Plus, the world in Bayonetta is just awesome, and the angels are all creepy as fudge. Looove it. :)

Aclay2819d ago

I can't believe IGN UK gave this a 7.... I thought the demo was a solid 8 or 8.5 at least and I enjoyed the demo more than I thought I would. Dante's Inferno may not be up to par with GOW3, but I'm probably still going to buy this game.
