okay so the commercial makes this game look really cool, but that can be misleading. should i rent this game, and if i do how long will it take to get the platinum? will i have fun getting it or will it be a grind? is it a ripoff of GOW like everyone says or is it just close to the same type of gameplay? thanksFebruary 14, 2010 at 11:14 pm #57817
The only reason this game is disappointing is because it can be played on the easy setting to get every trophy in the game… It's a shame because every whore on the network is gonna have the plat for this. I played it through twice on normal and half way through on hard to get the Plat., but that won't mean anything because the only people who'll know I've not “cheated” my way to the Plat. will be my mates who were here when i was playing it…
This is def a rent because even if you do play it on the normal setting, it's really not that hard, you know that just before you have to return it you can bung it on easy and get the Plat.
I thought this was gonna be a good Plat to have but with the lack of a “complete the game on Inferno mode” and the fact that you can even get the gold for completing “the gates of hell” arena on easy mean it's a piss take. It's easy enough on the normal if you punish every one you can for extra time, and put on the right relics… I had 17 untouchable rounds in a row and countless others, 9min to spare…
Rent it is my opinion, i just hope GOW is much longer, this is pretty short. Well over hyped, but very enjoyable if played “properly”February 15, 2010 at 12:14 am #57819
but how long for? i dont want to plat it in two days and have it for another five…February 15, 2010 at 12:14 am #57820

If your gonna play it on easy – 1
If your gonna play it on normal – 3
I had to play it about 3 times on normal to collect enough souls to upgrade everything to the max including relecs… My last playthrough to get all the guide's, if you die you have to talk to him again for it to count, i played it on easy and completed it in 3hour 27min… The harder modes get easier with the relecs you collect, and the gates of hell are real easy on normal… I'd imagine it'd be laughable on easy with full stats…
This is the easiest Plat in the history of games… It's almost like terminator in disguise, but the game is ok…February 15, 2010 at 7:57 pm #57891
thanks doc, ill probably be getting this from blockbusterFebruary 15, 2010 at 8:13 pm #57892
For the “gates of hell arena” challenge…
Do it last when your maxed up, grab and punish all the smaller “instant punish” enemies for extra seconds and equip the relic that stops you being interrupted when performing cross attacks to help you get “perfect” rounds… When you hit a round with the “spinning” greed enemies and they get spinning, instead of just blocking and wasting valuable seconds, use the “Righteous Path” magic attack to brake the spin and follow up with heavy attack…
It's def worth having a play-through on Hellish/Infernal when your maxed out for a bit of a challenge if you have a chance…February 16, 2010 at 3:25 pm #57942ShiperzzMember
The level of detail that the developers have put into it makes it worth the buy, for me anyway. Just make sure that you play it on the hardest difficulty (although normal is still relatively challenging).February 17, 2010 at 12:16 am #57955

I was personally quite disappointed with this game. Here's why…
The first quarter of the game is awesome. I kid you not. The art design is spectacular. You kill cool baddies, swing along edges and see massive bosses lingering in the background that you'll have to challenge momentarily. It gives you a lot of hope for the game. The last three quarters are unfortunately not very stellar at all, though.
First off, the puzzles seem worthless and that they're only there for the sake of being there. They feel very out of place. For example, you're in a brutally grotesque level of Hell when all of a sudden, you're in a big white room with portals shooting out of sides. You have to turn levers to move the portals around so you can continue into the next stage which looks like Hell again. A little out of place? I think so. Really, stuff like this takes you completely out of the game. There's another stage later in the game which basically just has you doing specific tasks in a certain amount of time ten times over again. First part, kill these enemies in time limit. Second part, kill these enemies while they're in the air in time limit. Third part… well, you get the point.
Secondly, the deaths are cheap and I mean really cheap. Most of these cheap deaths are due to the fixed camera angles which become stuck at times. “Hey, look at that; it's a ledge! Let's jump to it! Oops… even though we were facing it, we've jumped into a boiling lake of lava instead! Whoopsies… let's try it again!” Get used to replaying lots of parts lots of times over again. Unless I was playing a warped copy of the game, this problem happens quite often.
Lastly, it is quite easy. Personally, I'm not a fan of overly hard games because I tend to have anger issues. However, this game isn't very challenging at all. I played through it on easy which was easier than easy usually is. So when I was done, I tried it on harder modes and guess what? Still quite easy. I seriously think the only challenge in this game is overcoming the incredibly horrid camera angles. If you like to play through games and enjoy the story on an easier mode, then welcome. If you like tougher challenges, though, look somewhere else. You're really not going to find it here.
So overall, is Dante's Inferno worth it? I'd say it's worth a rental. I definitely wouldn't recommend buying this title, though. Even the cool additions of the “Divine Edition” aren't enough to warrant a purchase. The game is a frusterating experience which happens to include cool character and location designs, a stellar soundtrack and lots and lots of boobies (even ones with tongues that spit out little demonic babies; no joke). Also, even though this game is constantly being compared to the God of War series (and trust me, it's very similar), I found the controls to be more loose and closer to the vine of the Devil May Cry series. Anyway, give it a shot and see what you think. I know everyones opinions differ.February 18, 2010 at 3:47 pm #58026ShiperzzMember
I have to say my opinion has changed dramatically. The first part of this game was great, really detailed and some fun gameplay, but it really loses that as the game progresses. Its like the developers just gave up.
Definitely just a rent.February 22, 2010 at 1:07 pm #58259tridonMember
If anyone is looking for Dante's Inferno for cheap, Amazon's deal-of-the-day (February 22nd) has it for $45.99. Just thought I'd give the heads-up!
