Is Dante's adventure a pleasure cruise through Hell, or is it cursed to endless suffering?
I'll be getting the superior God of War 3 instead.
After playing the snooze fest Dante's Inferno demo, God of War 3 will be a godsend (no pun intended).
Didn't like the demo much either, doesn't reflect well especially after the PR stunts. Think I might just pick up Darksiders to hold me over till March, and probably Bayonetta as well.
So much for the "gO to HeLLz!!1!" marketing campaign. Glad it's over, it was starting to be quite tasteless, now someone should fire the ad department.
the review sounded like a 5.0
It's really a shame. I would have at least expected this game to be a 8/10, but it's plagued by bad graphics, cheap deaths, constant swarms of enemies, bad puzzles, and poor scripting and pacing (in later levels). I'll still rent it, but it seems Bayonetta was the only good hack and slash worth buying until God of War 3. I liked Darksiders, but I get gamer fatigue trying to play it (maybe I need to have shorter gaming sessions). And if I decide to pick it up I'll have to get Darksiders on my PS3 since it's the better version, which means I have to start over, because I rented it on my 360 :(
Will wait for the summer bargain bin for the mediocrity that is Dante's Inferno.
I'll pick up the psp version. I liked the demo on ps3 and even though it is no GoW3 it was still fun. I don't know of any other similar games coming for the psp so I will be getting that version at least. Beat chains of olympus a few times already and need a new hack/slash game. Curious about something though. Was it the press hyping this game to be a god of war killer (like the days of the "halo" killer) or was it gamers doing that?
I was a little disappointed with the demo too but for those of you praising bayonetta, you need to be kicked in the ass. Sure, lets pose and do runway walks while we shoot stupid looking guns. Lets use the power of our hair to fight off giant creatures. Because we all know they cant resist a full head of hair that is soft, smooth, and shines from within. Lets give the dude from devil may cry a vagina and call it a new game. DUMB!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
i couldnt give an excrement, i need this game, i am fiending for it!!!!!!hack and slash all day baby
You know the more people up the hype about God of War the more your expectations can be drowned. I will be picking up the UE day one, and I know how Uncharted 2 is unrivaled in action, but let GoW 3 be itself. Last time I checked going through the different depictions of Kratos Hell was not all that great. When Dante's Inferno says God of War on the box, cool then, but damn let it be. At least we're getting a fast, crisp moving fluid moving action game, and EA has finally woken back up. At least they're not turning this into a certain racing game debockle.
"fast, crisp moving fluid moving action game" You didn't watch the review did you? Bayonetta, Ninja Gaiden (Sigma) II and Darksiders all say hi by the way. Kratos will join them come this March. :P
Yea GOW3 will piss and put diarrhea all over this game.... GOW3 killer.... my A$$ bots.
lol @ delusional bots. Gonna have to wait longer for a decent GOW clone. Sub par game for a sub par console (360).
It's on the PS3 too champ.
[email protected] disagrees for saying it's on the ps3. funny stuff
what's your point? Ps3 is the home of the superior game ,God Of War 3.
@Murderdolls, this is EA games. Of course they are going to make a multiplatform game. If they didn't have the 360 to gimp the game up left and right, then we'd be seeing a true God of War competitor, and it'd be even more funny because bots wouldn't have anything to imagine themselves as Kratos. But that's not the case: the 360 gimped in, and the gaming community was handed another shoddy, sloppy game. Fvcking 360.
Dante's Inferno is actually pretty good. I seriously don't see why it's getting such horrible reviews.
generic game is generic.
To all the bots who thought this would be better than GOW III, I laugh at your stupidity.
Bots' nipples get hard when they see Kratos ripping off heads. They want to be him so badly (likewise for Solid Snake - But they get Raiden instead LOLOL). Bots are so gullibly fun.
Pass on this game and pick up Darksiders or Bayonetta to hold you over until GoW3.
play it and tell me its a 6.8 game. This game is no God of War by any means. Its just a wanna be GOW game but one thing is for sure. Its a pretty good wanna be. Ive played it for more than 3 hours and its really good. The hellish theme and the graphics are really good. The combat is mediocre I know but overall this game is more than a 6.8. As I always said. RENT IT> PLAY IT YOURSELF AND JUDGE IT. If you havent why comment. Im having more fun with this game than with my other purchase...one of the most boring games I played...ASSASINS CREED 2!. Its all a matter of opinions so play it and have yours. Its at least a good weekend fun rent. PEACE AND GAMING!!!!!!!
Im sorry but Dante´s Inferno cant even compete with God of War Collection
ha, i was playing 'Loaded' on my sega saturn this past weekend. the game hasn't aged too well, still just as violent as ever though.
But the soundtrack will rock forever!
if you own a xbro360 get this game!! it's the closest thing you'll get to GoW1. me on the other hand, I will wait for GoW3 while i take a shower in some Heavy Rain
GOW killer my @ss. This game deserves to GO TO HELL.
GOW killer? No Pal, Is GOD KILLER and his Name is Kratos...
Good to mediocre reviews for DI. Not a bad game but they drove me off with an overuse of grotesque imagery (female demons with large spiky penises, defecating fat slobs, etc) and complete bastardization of the source material. Worthy of a 2nd level tier action game leaving 1st tier only to the likes of God of War, Bayonetta and maybe Ninja Gaiden. Big big potential wasted here. Now back to playing the waiting game for GoW3.
Enjoy the leftovers of the videogame industry bots, we PlayStation fans get the best part always.

So much for God of War killer, God of War for mature, this game just sux.
Watching the review was very comical, from beginning to end gametrailers pretty much shot down the game. I actually was expecting a better review score not because the game is any good or breaking any boundaries but because it was heading up for the prototype vs inFamous syndrome. On a side note prototype sucked balls.
i guess this is the nails in the coffin triple ouch
Im not disagreing with the review... but why are GT's reviews always below the average?
I've got it coming from GameFly, it's in the mail right now, I hope it turns out at least good enough to finish before I send it back, but if not, oh well, there's already been more amazing games this year that I haven't been able to finish all of them yet.
It's comments like mine above here that I can't think of a single reason why anybody would take the time to click "disagree" against. I mean, really? You disagree that I'm renting this game, hoping it's good, and that there have been other good games this year to make up for it if this isn't good? Wow.
He/She/It probably don't like you because you must have either pawned him or made him look like a troll that he/she/it is. There are tons of idiots like that. I gave you a bubble. EDIT: @Callahan: See what I mean? LOL
Haha, yeah. Thanks, bubbles to you too.
sweet i should be getting it today or tomorro via gamefly ! :D hopefully its worth the wait, will return in time to get heavy rain though! :)
Good..glad that RIPOFF GOW game sucks nuff said nice try clowns.
I haven't played the game, but it looks better than a 6.8. (I would say 7.5 at least) Anyway, does this game take from God of War....sure. I do know that the argument about GOW taking from Ninja Gaden and Devil May Cry....something that is true. HOWEVER....DMC hasn't been good since it's 1st game, meaning...Capcom had 3 tries to improve on the 1st (And damn good) game but didn't. NG is ok, but again, they did not show anything after GOW came out. GOW 2 was much improved over the predecessor, and part 3 is on the PS3. (Will look an play much better on the next gen platform) In fact, GOW 1 and 2 collection pack is better the others titles. Do I know for a fact the GOW3 will be better than every game in this genre...NO. However, It's still a safe 1st day buy. GOW3 doesn't need hype to smash Dentes Inferno, just play the other games...look at the innovation. They didn't just use what DMC had, GOW franchise was expanded.
its a gow wanna be and it failed big time,sry bots
Tell me, what does GoW3 have, gameplay-wise, I'll say that again: GAMEPLAY-WISE, that Dante's Inferno, Bayonetta, Devil May Cry, Ninja Gaiden and evey other hack 'n' slash game doesn't? I'm sick you people putting the GoW games on a high pedestal every time a new H'n'S game comes along, so I want an honest answer, please...if that's even possible to get on this site. Rememeber, I'm talking about gameplay. Not characters. Not story. Not graphics. Not platforms. Not developers. Not companies. Not production values. GAMEPLAY. G.A.M.E.P.L.A.Y.
you took the words out of my mind. Really Gow has nothing exceptional when it comes to gameplay, having played all the series you mentioned plus games like god hand, onimusha & heavenly sword(crappy, I see nothing exceptional in gow, all you do is just bash your square and triangle buttons in extremely simple sequences, beating the crap out of bad guys that hardly offer any challenge and then tap the 'o' button for quicktime event, what makes it so different to dante's inferno hmmm...? Dont get me wrong, Gow is a good game, maybe its because it brought this level of grotesque violence to games that wasn't there before, but it definately doesnt have the best gameplay, not the best graphics either, maybe this new one is gonna break grounds on that, I hope so too, it does have a good story, which is actually what's keeping me. Just dont bash games that you've neither played nor tried to play, until you do, I like dante's inferno and I believe this rating is completely unfair and I know gametrailers rated it this badly cuz of Gow, freaking idiots
having not played gow at all,it looks more interesting to me then DI maybe it's the some what Greek mythology behind the game that i like so much about it,i really want to give gow3 a try looks really cool,i really liked the trailer when kratos was on the titan but it was like a whole level its self but it was in the same way a living character in the game it really interests me.GOW3 looks like a way better game then DI.
Just one reply after 22 hours? Sonyfriends sure got told. Yeah, the GoW games are good, but they're not so good that Sonyfriends have to belittle every other hack 'n' slash game that gets released. You don't see GTA fanboys getting asspained over Saint's Row, Mercenaries, Just Cause or any ther sandbox game, do you? Goddamn. Sonyfriends, Xbros and Nindentards make me ashamed to own the consoles. They really do. They're what's making the consoles look bad.
to me all hack 'n slash games are only worth a rental. I think the only game i ever bought and was glad was Ninja Gaiden black. All other HnS games, like devil may cry, bayonetta, darksiders, even god of war were only really fun once through the game. These games have very little replay value to me and are seldom worth the money due to how short they usually are. Why anyone would want to buy, instead of rent, games like god of war is beyond me. They just are not nearly as fun after the first time through, imo of course... I might give dante a rental, but after all the poor reviews it will probably wait til a really boring dry spell.
hmm this game is a rent for me if that,i seen xplays review of the game on tv today, seems like they liked it even tho they gave it a 3/5(i think)but I'm not really in to these type of games my self.
wow....if you let these stupid game reviews effect your decision on Dante's Inferno, then you are missing out on a really good game, and that is coming from someone who actually played through the full game. I truly believe that if there was no god of war....you people would be calling this game the best hack and slash ever. It is so obvious that GT's review on this game is biased (who uses the word stupid in a game review). Yes this game copied a lot from god of war and I am not going to say that DI is better because its clearly not, but it is still a very good game with awesome graphics and a great story and does not deserve to be bashed like it is for no reason. If you dont believe me try it out for yourself. (rent and enjoy)
