Quick Look: Dante's Inferno
" Excited to see how this game turned out. Not expecting much. "I think it will turn out to be a good if not great game, just not at all origional. Visceral has proven themselfs to be capable of making a great game while using an older game in the genre as a jumping of point(RE4 for Dead Space)
good job on all these recent quick looks. right after watching dark void, now into dantes inferno.
hm. So, EA ripped off God of War, gave it the title, Dante's Inferno, so they could say it has backstory and meaning to the events, and put some money into creating a cartoon. It doesn't have personality, it just seems very by the book "ripoff popular franchise and profit"...
Meh... I'm starting to have button-masher overload. Ninja Gaiden Sigma 2 came out, then God of War Collection, Darksiders, and Bayonetta. Now this is coming out, followed by God of War 3...
Not to mention the fact that I'm just not into games where I can roll my face across the controller buttons, and win. I expect more out of games in 2009-10, but maybe that's just me.
So . . . basically, at one point, you're saying that you're on a boat. And you murder the boat because it's made of people. Then you ride a monster to the other side and go crashing through a wall. But it's all okay, becasue you're in hell.
Also, Dante solves every problem with stabbing.
Pretty rad looking game. It seems like 2010 is turning into the year of paying homage to gaming past. Darksiders with its LEGENDary Zelda reverence. Bayonetta HANGing-ON to its Sega and Capcom roots. Now Dante's Inferno doing a HELL of a job emulating God of War....see what I did there? I'll definately play this game because I totally dig the style its going for, so I guess it all comes down to whether or not I'm comfortable fighting hell babies. Well unfortunately I've seen all the "It's Alive" movies so...yes. Hell yes I'll kill aborted hell babies!
" This game looks just like God of War, but without the staunch restraint. "My thought exactly. It took all of those kinda uncomfortably gorey moments of the GoW games and blew it out to ten times proportion, made sure every woman was topless and had any attention you paid to detail immediately reveal something disgusting. I'm not suggesting the game is inappropriate or shouldn't exist, but it just seems really gross with few redeeming qualities. Not my taste.
