CVG: The reviews for EA's Dante's Inferno have gone live - and it's a positive outcome overall.
I wouldn't call it positive I would call it a decent outcome overall.
Yeah, it looks that way. Dante just comes up short in this fray of hack n' slash titles coming out this spring. EA might have pushed this out too early and their hard marketing of the game worries me.
I am picking this up on Tuesday. A lot of people I have talked to, seem to have issue with the religious aspect which I find odd seeing as it puts religion where it belongs...in a form of fiction. I love the hack n' slash genre, and I hope this will last until GoW III comes out
Is that really necessary to try to offend religious people on here? And don't act like that wasn't your intention by calling religion fiction, knowing full well that's not the opinion for many of the readers here. Stop trying to be an a$$ & keep your opinions about religion to yourself or post about it on some other relevant forum.
Re-read his comment... from reading it I understood it to be that it's better to place a religous game in a fictional enviroment or situation. Imagine placing a religous game in current day Iraq, surely that factual world is more offencive to place religon in? Also surely it's his belief that religon is fictional? Which is surprisingly more SCIENTIFIC... I mean I don't really see how one could create energy yet Jesus did. I am not saying religon is wrong, I myself have no beliefs just ideas on how things work. I have no problem with religon none what so ever. I dislike in your face religon or extremist religons but that's justifiable is it not? This game in my opinion deals with faith very maturely... and I found little offence in his comment.
If you choose to be offended by my comment, I suggest you hit the ignore button. My point is simply that Dante's Inferno takes place in a fictional world as do many other titles (GoW for example) and that religious content shouldn't prevent anyone from playing this. As for the relevance, this game is based around religion and is therefore an obvious form of fiction, making my comment applicable Edit: I would also like to point out that it was you who resorted to name calling....looks like you don't believe in 'the book' either
God of War is also based on religion, it's just that Roman mythology doesn't have as many followers as Christian mythology. That's why people aren't as upset with its religious aspects.
@Soda I think you meant Greek Mythology
lol yeah. Greek, not Roman.
I'm going to give it a rent myself. After try the demo I loved how the story was developing and interested in seeing how it ends.
I agree, it looks like a good rental.
you call that list positive? then I guess we all should consider ourselves lucky that we have many "positive" games :P
no wear near god of war killer
dont care if reviews are good or bad, i think im going to like it
It has the potential to be a fantastic addition to the PSP line up... The PSP doesn't have Darksiders or Bayonetta or a new God of War game coming out this year. It basically has one (excellent) game in this genre (Chains of Olympus) that was released about two years ago. Chains of Olympus proved that the PSP control scheme was no a huge problem for this type of game and that Hack/Slash can be brilliant on the portable. So I'm hopeful for DI PSP. Even if it is not AAA PS3/360 title, it may be a premium portable/PSP experience. Like some others, I love the Christian symbolism and art direction, so I'm picking it up for PS3 (loved the demo), but may get it for PSP also if they do a good job on the translation to portable.
"Beatrice will use any excuse to get her tits out, such as being killed, being dead or being sad that Dante condemned her by fondling someone else's tits (which we get to see too, obviously). In a couple of instances only one of her breasts is shown, which is presumably meant to make you think you're looking at art rather than an excuse to whack in another tit. To balance things out, there are a few enemies who sport huge thorny penises - but they're actually women, as you can tell by their massive tits." LOL
I'm betting Eurogamer sold a ton of copies based on that quote alone!
why bother with this game...you should be playing ME2 now and GodofWar in 3 weeks.
"While it is a visually striking tour of Hell itself, the gameplay feels derivative, like a weaker version of God of War. This repetitive quality, combined with significantly flawed combat, keeps the game from being a truly great experience. " which is why i will be waiting for March 16 ,2010.
This guy from Destructoid has the best comment about the game " When it comes down to it, you're going to get the best Dante's Inferno experience when you let go. Let go of the comparisons [with GoW]. Let go of your contempt for what it may or may not do for and to the source material. Just let go and have fun. " i for one will be getting this game next week can't wait!! it looks awesome can't wait to have fun
Destructoid telling you(and me)to let go of contempt and just have fun is like Hitler telling me to turn the other cheek and to live and let live. While I agree with the statement and feel more "gamers"(and I use that loosely) need to take it to heart, I DO NOT agree with who it's coming from.
