Dante's Inferno (PS3) > Opinions (63)

tontus posted 03/09/2012, 12:22
God of War III is easily the best hack n' slash this generation and of all time. Castlevania: LoS is amazing, definitely the best game in the genre outside of God of War. Dante's Inferno is mediocre but even so it's still tied for 3rd best this gen with Bayonetta & Heavenly Sword. Bayonetta has good gameplay but sucks at everything else, Heavenly Sword has good visuals & story but lacks good gameplay and Dante's Inferno is the most balanced with ok graphics, gameplay and story. I'd still like to see a sequel to Dante's Inferno only because this is such a niche genre and there isn't enough games to fill the void between God of War games.

This sold well enough in Japan to get a re-release. It probably sold slightly better than what we have it at here.

This will probably end up being a game I want to play that I just never get time for because better games are out there that I've yet to play. And more games will come that I'd prefer to play. Too bad really because I think this game has some good points to it that aren't completely cloned from GoW. Darksiders is another game I'll probably never get round to playing.

I'm not crazy about GoW, but its better than this.

The story in this game was solid. In fact, the story is what saved this from being complete crap. But the game itself feels incomplete and uninspired.

This is worth a rental or purchase at a bargain bin price.

In Comparison with GoW I+II it's very poor. Not the hellish clone, i tought it would become.

@pugsly
Hmmm...so I guess you think GOW is also a very mediocre hack and slash? Honestly, I had flashback of playing Kratos when playing this game; and I think that's the main reason for all the bigotry this game is receiving!!! It's a fun game with a very inspired storyline; give it a chance people! Awesome moments that rival GOW are the battle with King Minos and Cerebrus.

Maybe you played a different game. Because this is a very mediocre hack n' slash in my opinion.

Anyone who pays more than $20 for this was ripped off.

Massive disappointment despite it's "HUGE" marketing campaign and amount of effort put into this game. This is A VERY good game that did not get picked up by gamers in both consoles for some reason.

Well..what can i say..going to hell iz cool an all..but they should have put more time into this game with more hell spawns..different eneimes to fight..fighting the same people over again gets tired..a quick fix before i pick up my "GOD OF WAR" Ultimate edition $100 bucks..cant wait.

Rather slow start, might get a good boost when the price gets cut. Games like Bayonetta and GoW III will also eat its sales.

well i like god of war, and i thought dante's level design was annoying as hell, the puzzles wern't fun and the enemies repetitive, so no, bottom line is people who like god of war will not ALWAYS like D.I. combat was very enjoyable tho, love the good and evil split of powers.

Because most of us have a select amount of funds and can't buy everything that's just been released. 3 new releases will set one back $180 + Tax. Buying this game set me back buying Ocean Star. Wasn't an easy decision, but its one I don't regret.

In the showdown of the pre-GoW III slashers (D.I., Bayonetta and Darksiders) this game (PS3 version) has taken first blood with the highest opening week sales in Others. Bayonetta (PS3) will be > all for Japan. So opening week victory will come down to who takes out the Americas. So far, with the D.I. numbers yet to come in Darksiders (X360 version) has America at 175K.

I never played any of the GOW games, but my interest was peeked by Dante's Inferno. I wanted to see what it was about, and after beating it, I've decided to buy the GOW collections. People need to stop bashing this game just because its like some other game.

Well GOW was not original by any means, it took combat from Ninja Gaiden and Devil MAy Cry, stole the chained blades from Rygar, Resident Evil 4 did QTE's before, then they throw a Greek Methology story to it....That doesn't mean GOW is a bad game and Dante's Inferno is a good game as well. Also if your expecting GOW 3 to be innovate you will be sad. IT will still be good....bottom line is anyone who likes GOW will like Dantes Inferno.

This is a really cool game and I guess 54,000 isn't bad for 2 days sales. If you are on the fence on this game, I play alot of this genre, Ninja Gaiden, GOW, Bayonetta, DMC, all of them and Dantes Inferno is very fun, nice combat, and very atmospheric.
