  • These two items make the game very interesting to play through, if only for the story
  • I was extremely disappointed when cutscenes would end, and I was left with lackluster-looking surroundings

      Dante’s Inferno is a third-person action/adventure game based on the religious 14th Century poem by Dante Alighieri. This controversial game brings some things to the table; unfortunately, it brings the same things to the table over and over again.

      In the game, you take control of Dante, who is fighting through the nine circles of Hell to get back his beloved Beatrice. Each circle of hell has its own theme and boss. Dante sees flashbacks of stories from his life throughout the game. These two items make the game very interesting to play through,


      if only for the story.

      The game has fantastic art direction. Flashbacks are told with layered 2D images. Hell’s different minions, as well as Hell itself, are brought to life with terrifying dark shadowing and bleached colors. Cutscenes in the game are absolutely stunning. The graphics during the gameplay; however, are horrible compared to the cutscenes. I was extremely disappointed when cutscenes would end, and I was left with lackluster-looking surroundings. In my opinion, the graphics during the gameplay are barely acceptable for a last-gen game.

      Now, the gameplay. At first, it is fun to ...


      • hack and slash with the large weapon Dante holds, but after a while, you will begin to pull your hair out in boredom. Occasionally, there are button-pressing scenes you must participate in, but they repeat over and over. Let’s start by saying the gameplay is not like God of War, IT IS God of War. The action and weapon (that’s right, I said “weapon”, not “weapons”) are almost a carbon copy of God of War. There are some puzzles throughout the game (another sign of God of War plagiarism), but they do not
        challenge the mind much. Occasionally, you may control a creature, but it is the same creature over and over and is not very much fun. Boss battles do not take much strategy, and require the same hacking action as all of the other creatures do. Bottomline, by the third hour of playing the game, I was half-asleep.

        Dante’s Inferno is good, and is a worth a play-through, even just for the story. As far as gameplay goes, the game disappoints. I recommend this as a rental, but it is not worth shelling out 60 bucks.
