"Awesome Game, with great interactions"
5 stars"

This is a great game. The ability to upgrade when you want and to be good or bad is great. There are heaps of different monsters to fight and the bosses are all different. The background is a bit unchanging. But there is alot of details in it.

Loving this game and the ability to play it for 30 mins at a time. Feels like the game will go forever but its not getting boring.

"The god of war feel"
5 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

This game is a good hack in slash with puzzles Just as good as the ‘god of war’ series ‘Dante's Inferno’ has the choice of helping the dammed or putting them to face their sins You jump from boss to boss in this game so its not recommended for those who give up when they lose All up its a great guys game has a few funny bits and awesome action scenes

"God of War clone with emphasis on horror..."
5 stars"

Dante's Inferno takes place in Hell and the chapters are based on the 9 deadly sins which make for quite a visceral and gory game. The story is based on rescuing your love Beatrice from the underworld and absolving her. Throughout the journey into the depths of Hell, you are guided by Virgil, a ghost-like guide.

Although sharing many similarities with God of War such as the exact same healing and mana fountains along with collecting “soul-like” particles to purchase new moves, Dante uses more varied magic and you can choose to either down a path of the Unholy or Holy.

There are many collectables, some would say more than any other platforming game. The collectables include; holy relics, unholy relics, shades, virgil commentaries and coins.

Enemies are varied in basic minions to fire minions, exploding minions, heretics wielding sceptres, demons, flying gargoyle beasts and even unbaptized babies. Expect a whole host of gruesome bosses that you can imagine from the underworld.

The game has a few puzzles thrown in as you would expect in any platformer but they are really easy and shouldn't pose any threat. There are cranks to move platforms to open up different alcoves, a lot of rope climbing and wall hanging. These will probably take up most of your time apart from the mini battles with your enemies.

The game is very, very short. I spent probably about 15hrs finished the story plus most of the collectables then did the Gates of Hell mode (God of War challenges practically) in another half hour. So, I would recommend renting unless you're really interested in this game and enjoy a great hack n' slash game.

8/10 (would be 9 if not for the very short length) but highly recommended to anyone who enjoys a great hack n' slash game and doesn't mind a bit of blood and gore.

Description

EA’s Dante’s Inferno tells an adapted story that focuses on delivering a blockbuster 3rd person action game experience while bringing Alighieri’s depiction of Hell to the medium. Players assume the role of Dante, who descends into Hell after returning home to find his beloved Beatrice murdered, with Lucifer seducing her soul into the underworld. Dante sets out on a rescue mission to save Beatrice, but he soon realizes he is also in Hell to face his own demons and ultimately to redeem himself.

Players will take Dante through nine unique circles of Hell as mapped out and described by Alighieri: limbo, lust, gluttony, greed, anger, heresy, violence, fraud and treachery. Each circle will showcase its own distinct look, with demons, monsters, damned and geography that are crafted straight from the poem’s vivid descriptions.

To take down the demons of Hell, Dante is outfitted with two primary weapons: the Scythe he takes from Death and the Holy Cross given to him by Beatrice, which has spiritual powers that will help Dante collect souls and spells from the creatures he defeats on his journey. The game also features a deep upgrade system so gamers can customize their abilities to their specific gameplay style, something they’ll need as Dante comes face to face with Hell’s fiercest beasts and bosses. If successful, Dante will be able to tame certain beasts, exacting their will and turning Hell’s punishments back on itself.

Built on the same technology as the award-winning Dead Space™, Dante’s Inferno will deliver a fast, fluid and responsive combat experience running at 60 frames per second, a must-have for the action adventure genre. The game is being built by Visceral Games™, with the same attention to polish the studio has become known for with Dead Space.

Features:
  • An Epic Adaptation of a Classic - Based on part one of Dante Alighieri’s classic poem “The Divine Comedy,” Dante’s Inferno is a 3rd person action adventure game that takes Dante on an epic journey through Hell as he seeks to rescue the soul of his beloved Beatrice.
  • The Nine Circles of Hell - Just like the poem, players will descend through Dante’s unique nine circles of Hell: limbo, lust, gluttony, greed, anger, heresy, violence, fraud and treachery. Each circle features distinct environments, enemies and story elements befitting the sins committed by their inhabitants.
  • Control the Beasts of Hell - Dante’s Inferno features large scale beasts and bosses, some of which Dante will be able to fully tame, utilizing them to throw back Hell’s wrath to its minions.
  • Fast, Addictive, Responsive Combat - Dante fights through the nine circles armed with Death’s Scythe and Beatrice’s Holy Cross, with magic powers and a deep, customizable upgrade system helping the player take full advantage of a fast and fluid gameplay experience that will never run at lower than 60 frames per second.
  • Bring Hell With You Wherever You Go - Dante’s Inferno gives PSP owners the same level of fast, responsive gameplay through all nine detailed and unique circles of hell the team is aiming to achieve on the consoles.
  • Visceral Games Stamp of Approval - From the award-winning studio that created the critically-acclaimed Dead Space, Dante’s Inferno will receive the same relentless focus on quality and polish Visceral Games has become known for.
