Dante's Inferno (Xbox 360)

 

While Dante slices through the belly of an undead beast with his razor-sharp scythe, traverses a crumbling bridge with a quick-time event, and overthrows the ruler of a damned land with vicious determination, a burst of familiarity might flash through...

Is it really a God of War clone?

So with good gameplay, great presentation, and compelling story, you may wonder why this game is being panned by critics and gamers alike. Well first off, the amount of game for your buck is incredibly low. Completing the game your first time through...

Great set pieces ; Lush visuals ; Fluid combat ; Fast-paced action

Relatively short ; Frustrating platforming ; Relic saving

Epic action games seem to be the theme for 2010 and so far things are good. EA and Visceral Games are back with yet another entry to the genre, this time with a game that borrows from two ends of the spectrum. Dante’s Inferno is a balls-to-the-wall...

Gameplay

Dante’s Inferno unfortunately falls flat to the mold of being monotonous and repetitive. You’ll often find some bland puzzles along the way as well that would make you fee like a thick rock if you couldn’t progress through them because they were so...

Dante's story is a pretty simple we can all probably be too familiar with by now; your love has been stolen and now you must get her back. During Dante's desperate journey to get Beatrice back, you'll undergo the classic hero path: finding yourself and...

Overall, Dante's Inferno is a solid game that I really enjoyed. If you are looking at other reviews that gave this game a very low score, don't fret because of that and actually try it out. It delivers fast, fierce, and fun game play, wrapped around a...

Combat

Presents a solid charcter action title that offers up plenty of fun button mashing

It copies quite heavily from other charcter action titles inheriting those games issues in the process, while presenting its own unique issues with derrivative, trial and error based puzzles

Combat in Dante's Inferno will feel extremely familiar to anyone who has previously played either of the God of War games. There is a normal attack, a heavy attack and a ranged attack. Effectively combining these attacks can create some insane combos...

Dante's Inferno review

 

Take poet Dante's well known The Divine Comedy. Add that story to a game. Add a heavily inspired God of War gameplay to it. Mix it all up and you'll get Dante's Inferno, the new action game from EA. Despite its resemblance to God of War (a lot) and...

Dante's Inferno Review for the XBOX360

 

Abandon all hype, ye who enter here.

Ambitious source material; Solid, if familiar, combat mechanics

Messy story; Stunted combo system; Repetitious environments; Antiquated save system

Review: Dante's Inferno (Microsoft Xbox 360)

 

The controls for Dante are not horrible by any means; they just seem rushed and occasionally sloppy. You can battle enemies without fear of missing attacks and climb around like you'd expect, but if you don't tap the correct button at the exact moment...

Dante’s Inferno is a well-made game from any mechanical standpoint. However, the depressing subject matter, occasionally annoying controls, and archaic reliance on quick time events turn what could have been an awesome game into just another God of War...
