Well I wake up one morning, turn on my Xbox, and what do I see but Dante's Inferno the game featured on the dashboard. Apparently they are making a game based off Dante's Divine Comedy.

So I test out the demo, and its actually very fun. The controls remind me of God of War: its third person, and you play as Dante, who has a huge weapon that he swings around with supernatural speed. Although it does seem sort of like a button smashing game, it will surely make up for it with an awesome storyline. For anyone who's read Dante's Inferno, you'll know what I'm talking about.

From what I've gathered from the demo there are magical powers (Dante's holy cross power: shoots a magical cross at enemies), huge [wagon] weapons, and lots of bosses (I fought two and its only the first circle of hell). The first boss is a bit of a pushover if you know the trick (hint: block). The second one is a bit annoying because you can't block, but easy as well. Oh and you also get to control huge monsters at times.

Anyway, here's the site if you want to check it out.

I'm not sure if the game is still featured on the dashboard, but I'm sure you can still download it if its not there.

PS: It also has nudity like god of war. You've been warned... (don't play the demo in front of your parents, kids)

Except, you know, Fallout 3 was created by Bethseda which created Oblivion.


I want to play this game cause I am a big fan of action games, as well as the Divine Comedy.

Yeah, still, they are both pretty much a copy+paste of the other one.

You might get dissapointed, I haven't played the game but I heard it was not very loyal to the book. Might be a good or a bad thing, depending on how you see it. Afterall, if it was 100% loyal to the book it would be a very borring game.

The basic storyline as I know it is this; Dante is a soldier during the Crusades. He gets killed on the battlefield, and Death comes to collect him. He kicks Death's [wagon] and takes his scythe, and heads home. He finds out that his girlfriend/wife (not sure which) Beatrice (you should recognize the name) was kidnapped and taken to Hell. He goes off on a rescue mission, which is what you're playing in this game.

It should be interesting, to say the least. Sure, there might be a few deja vu moments with God of War throwbacks, but I think they'll be overshadowed by awesome visuals and gameplay, as well as the storyline. Can't wait.

I despised God of War, thought it was overhyped crap. This on the other hand, this might be fun. It sounds like something I write down at lunch when I'm bored.

So you die after slicing up like a million baddies. The grim reaper comes, but you take his scythe and kick his [wagon] with it while he begs you to stop. You then go to hell, where you hop on a gigantic minotaur. You ride it around and make it breath fire on demons and pick them up and bite their heads off.

Epic.

That looks like spam.

To Dizzle:

I understand if you do not like certain games, but you have to admitt the storyline in god of war is epic. I mean come on the dude eat cyclop eyes for breakfast, what else does he do with them?

Since the xbox 360 doesn't have God of War, it seems appropriate that we get a game similar to it. I like that Visceral studios are developing it. I want them to have another solid game after Dead Space.

Completely disagree. Oblivion and Fallout 3 are completely separate. They do look somewhat the same, but the way you play is much different and I found Fallout to be a much darker game.

I despised God of War, thought it was overhyped crap. This on the other hand, this might be fun. It sounds like something I write down at lunch when I'm bored.

So you die after slicing up like a million baddies. The grim reaper comes, but you take his scythe and kick his [wagon] with it while he begs you to stop. You then go to hell, where you hop on a gigantic minotaur. You ride it around and make it breath fire on demons and pick them up and bite their heads off.

Epic.

Cannot see how you can say that when God of War is the exact same thing. Slice up a ton of bad guys, fight a giant boss battle, and you could ride cyclops's around. It's a complete rip-off if their ever was, and how you could even say that you hate God of War but think this will be epic is beyond me. Dante's Inferno has potential, but it is the exact same thing as GOW, I'm assuming it will be a bit less polished and epic as God of War 3 will be though.

When a person's first post consists of a nonsensical sentence, some botched form of writing towards the end, and a link, I tend to not click the link.



As I said, it has potential but the demo felt so much like god of war. The setting was different and it was pretty fun. It will probably be worth a rental, but I do think it's an appetizer to God of War 3, which will rip this game's face off and eat it while mercilessly pulling every arm and leg from it's body and beating it's body with said arms and legs.

It's so factually inaccurate, that I refuse to get this game. Beatrice going to hell, and Dante being a crusader? Pft.

I don't care about it being a GoW ripoff, since I've never played GoW. I guess I win in this situation. Never read the book, either, so I don't care about accuracy.

Explain to me the epic. I tried to read it but was quite confused. I know Dante was not a crusader, and wasn't Beatrice going to heaven and he wanted to get her back or something? And some Greek poet was following him around. I read quite a bit of the epic, but it never made any sense to me.

Who cares about accuracy? Tell me, if they stuck to the book, would it be that fun of a game? Or if they tweaked it a little bit, and made it a crusader (with a cross SOWN into his chest) kill Death, then fight through hell with Death's scythe? Doesn't that sound just a little bit more fun to you?

One thing i like in DI more then in GOW is the level design.

Having levels designed around the 7 sins was a wonderfull idea if you ask me.

game actually wasn't too bad from the Demo play, thought it was pretty cool looking. idk if i would buy it or not as their are much more appealing titles, but it seemed worth looking into.
