Is everyone ready to give a sequel a chance?

So no, this is not me saying “guess what I know that you don’t!? There’s a sequel that was announced!” ‘Cause I don’t believe there has been yet, but I do believe there will be, so in that case, is anyone thinking about the future of the Dante’s Inferno series, or to you, does that even matter? For me, I do take notice of the problems in the original, but overall, I really did enjoy the game. I really like the premise, but I think that they need to take everything a step further, improvements and subject matter, to give it more meaning. I don’t want to list the stuff I liked and disliked in detail, so all I’ll say is that I would be happy if they came out with a sequel that improved on everything the first did. Oh yeah, I will say one thing that I disliked, which is one of… many? Saying many is a bit too harsh for me when it comes to this game, but anyways; Satan, his voice didn’t sound at all menacing. I wish it sounded more like Pinhead from Hellraiser.

I would not. What a giant waste of money that would be.

The source material it was based on as loose as that may be wouldn't warrant a sequel without even further insulting The Divine Comedy.

It's done enough damage let it die.

I really liked the first one besides a few kinda unfun puzzles. I think I beat it twice? Or maybe not, but ya it was a fun ride and would definitly buy a sequel.

Perhaps you've heard of this thing called God of War?

@iAmJohn: Oh yeah, lol, but I still want to see what else Visceral Games has to offer

Didn't he already kill everything in hell or something?
 
How do you follow that.

Where's the option for never played the first and don't give a shit about the franchise?

Kill everything in Purgatory, then kill everything in Heaven, or Paradiso if you will.

B. That game was absolute shit. Would never play it or any squeal again. There are 100 other games EA should do before this one.

Sure, why not? The first was one was alright.

I think this topic should have been called, "Is anyone ready to give a sequel a chance."

I'd much prefer a new IP to a rehashing of a crappy old one.

While getting further and further away from the actual text with each entry. Adaptations are free to take liberties, but holy shit, this game was just a bad idea.

Eh, just rip off God of War some more and toss in a few more dicks. Also, the ending will show that God was behind it all! What a twist!

Yeah, you're right, this game ought not be made.

yes, the most anticipated sequel to the game nobody played

#24 Posted by Divina_Rex (351 posts) -

I don't think Purgatory would really work with the game play style of Dante killing shit. Just think, if they made a third one and that was in Heaven how would it work?

I don't really understand the hate for this game that it apparently has (well here at least). It's not a bad gamer by any means. It just didn't do much to establish itself from the game it steals from. The elements it did add were cool like being able to judge certain personalities from the bible as well as the stuff they did with Hell but it was still way to much like God of War with a weapon that was more annoying to use.

Judging biblical personalities came down to "Hey, which kind of points do you want?" There's no moral impetus to making any of those choices.

the first one felt like a gameloft game so i voted B cause playing the first was an awful awful experience

I thought it was a cool idea but the game stuck to much to the God Of War formula. They should have taken the judgement concept further as well as the Judeo-Christian elements. To expand on good ideas that came short. As it stand you are right in that it was just a point thing. It also just felt like they modded God of War instead of it feeling like it was its own thing. I like the game allright so I was glad I didn't pay much for it. I'm not really looking forward to a sequel but I am interested in what they will improve on.

I'd love a sequel. Greatly enjoyed the first, and eager to see how they would adapt the other poems. Such a crazy thing to try and convert.

I was a champion over Dante's Inferno, constantly telling people to stop being naysayers and that it would be an excellent game because Visceral is a developer that can take the pieces of other games and fuse them together into something excellent.

Then I played the game.

What a fucking abomination to all decent things in this industry. It was worth being handed for free, putting on the lowest difficulty, and seeing the cool art in it. That is all.

So no. Fuck a sequel. If they make a sequel, I'm afraid I would be liable to commit murder.

I've never played the first but I am willing to give Visceral a chance with this.

I'm not sure where they'd take it...  unless the last one made it clear where they were going. I was watching my buddy play this, but he couldn't get past the final boss, so I never saw the end.
