  • The Nine Circles of Hell – Just like the poem, players will descend through Dante's unique nine circles of Hell: limbo, lust, gluttony, greed, anger, heresy, violence, fraud and treachery. Each circle features distinct environments, enemies and story elements befitting the sins committed by their inhabitants
  • Control the Beasts of Hell – Dante's Inferno features large scale beasts and bosses, some of which Dante will be able to fully tame, utilizing them to throw back Hell's wrath to its minions

Product Description

Platform: PLAYSTATION 3

Manufacturer's Description

EA’s Dante’s Inferno will take gamers to the western world’s most definitive view of the afterlife as created in the 13th century by the Italian poet Dante Alighieri in part one of his epic classic, “The Divine Comedy.”It tells an adapted story that focuses on delivering a blockbuster 3rd person action game experience while bringing Alighieri’s depiction of Hell to the medium. Players assume the role of Dante, who descends into Hell after returning home to find his beloved Beatrice murdered, with Lucifer seducing her soul into the underworld. Dante sets out on a rescue mission to save Beatrice, but he soon realizes he is also in Hell to face his own demons and ultimately to redeem himself.

Players will take Dante through nine unique circles of Hell as mapped out and described by Alighieri: limbo, lust, gluttony, greed, anger, heresy, violence, fraud and treachery. Each circle will showcase its own distinct look, with demons, monsters, damned and geography that are crafted straight from the poem’s vivid descriptions. To take down the demons of Hell, Dante is outfitted with two primary weapons: the Scythe he takes from Death and the Holy Cross given to him by Beatrice, which has spiritual powers that will help Dante collect souls and spells from the creatures he defeats on his journey. The game also features a deep upgrade system so gamers can customize their abilities to their specific gameplay style, something they’ll need as Dante comes face to face with Hell’s fiercest beasts and bosses. If successful, Dante will be able to tame certain beasts, exacting their will and turning Hell’s punishments back on itself.

Built on the same technology as the award-winning Dead Space, Dante’s Inferno will deliver a fast, fluid and responsive combat experience running at 60 frames per second, a must-have for the action adventure genre. The game is being built by Visceral Games, with the same attention to polish the studio has become known for with Dead Space.

There aren't too many video games based on 14th century epic poetry and to be fair this is unlikely to start a trend. Not because it isn't any good, but because it merely uses the idea of the nine circles of hell as the basis for a God of War style third person brawler.

The end-of-level bosses are some of the biggest ever seen
Beatrice's cross enables Dante's most powerful attacks
Stabbing Death with his own scythe is not in the original
Cleopatra oversees Lust - the second circle of Hell

Considering the game starts with you beating up Death and stealing his scythe, to use as your main weapon, the game actually manages the balance between outrageous action and serious story pretty well.

You'll constantly have to make the decision of whether to absolve damned spirits or condemn them. Which you choose will see your holy or unholy special powers increase and effect the ending of the game. With some huge boss fights (including Old Nick himself at the end) and grotesquely imaginative graphics this could be a real slice of heaven for action fans.

Key Features
  • Holy tragedy: Inspired by the classic Divine Comedy, you must journey through the nine circles of Hell to rescue the love of your life from Satan himself.
  • Hell of War: Fluid combat system features intense melee combat and magical attacks, all of which can be upgraded and customised according to your preferences.
  • Quality of mercy: You must choose whether to absolve damned spirits or condemn them - your choices will affect the story and your special weapons.
  • Dangerous ride: Defeat beast-riding enemies and you can ride the monsters themselves and make use of their special powers and awesome strength.
  • Helter skelter : Each circle of Hell has its own unique art style and creatures, becoming progressively more dangerous and disturbing as you go.
About the Developer: Visceral Games
EA Redwood Shores used to be just another Electronic Arts studio, making games like The Godfather and The Simpsons. Then they were given free rein to work on original projects such as Dead Space and Dante's Inferno. EA were so impressed they even let them change their name.

4.0 out of 5 stars BETTER TO BURN OUT THAN TO FADE AWAY? 7 Feb 2010
Platform for Display:PLAYSTATION 3
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
A lot of people, including yours truly, have been waiting with baited breath for this game to tear it's way from the pages of the Mr. Alighieri's masterwork. So have we been dealt a heavenly hand or does this interpretation deserve a place in the lowest circle of the abyss? read on...

THE HEAVENLY:
*- The controls are as tight as my bosses wallet and as responsive as they come, no complaints on this front whatsoever.
*- The pure seething imagination injected into the interpretation of each of hells circle is mind boggling - Lust is as X-rated as you'd expect and The Forest of the Suicides is just stunningly awesome - don't even get me started on The City of Dis, just stunning.
*- The denizens of the pit are equally impressive and terrifying, Cerberus, Charon - just...WOW!
*- Leaving you to judge famous characters from antiquity, both literary and historical, based on a small amount of information and the characters pleas for help adds a nice touch of depth to the proceedings and I got to torture or bless some of my favourite cads and characters from some of the worlds greatest books and historical tales not just Dante's gem.
*- If you're looking for action you'll get it in bucket loads, interspersed with very slight puzzles this is an action game through and through and as an action game fan I have been blessed between this, Bayonetta and Darksiders in the last month.
*- Graphically there are some really experimental effects and things you won't have seen in many/any other titles but you'll be hoping to see them built upon in future games.
*- riding behemoth hell beasts and blasting your way through hordes of demons will get your blood pumping for sure.
*- The sound work is stunning and disturbing in equal gorgeous measures.

4.0 out of 5 stars Gloriously Gorey 28 May 2010
Platform for Display:PLAYSTATION 3
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
I bought this game after much anticipation from the trailer, and i have to say i wasn't disappointed. Yes, it is similar to God of War, but brings all the fun combat element of God of war to a horrific Christian horror setting, if you get me. The environments are amazing, and you find yourself looking into the background to see walls built from people, and rivers of boiling blood with people struggling out of it and gaping mouths in the walls with streams of bodies pouring out. The enemy design is very interesting too, although the "minion" type creatures are a little simple, the multi mouthed gluttons, unbaptized babies and scary yet sexy temptresses are very well designed. I can honestly say, it makes Hell seem like a place to avoid if you didnt think that in the first place. All in all, i found it fun to play with brilliant imagery.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good if not a little short 19 Mar 2010
Platform for Display:PLAYSTATION 3
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Admittedly I was a little hesitant about this game after reading previous reviews, and whilst most of the negative issues people have highlighted are true, it doesn't take away from the fact that this is very good game. The pace is relatively quick and you find yourself stringing together combos in now time, and the story is enough to keep you entertained throughout. The game would take most players between 8-10 hours to complete, which is quite short considering the price but there is plenty of opportunity for replay. What with a number of difficulty levels and lots of collectibles. Yes the game does get a little repetitive and slow about half way through, but the scale of the environments is enough to keep you interested. The imagery can in places be quite disturbing, and at times in poor taste, but not enough to really damage the overall gameplay. A highlight of the game has to be the graphics, with some top notch cut-scenes to rival any modern CGI film. All in all a great addition to any gaming collection.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Inferno or just a camp fire? 6 Feb 2010
Platform for Display:PLAYSTATION 3
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
when i first heard about this game i was a little sceptical about it. but after downloading the demo i was in love with the masterpiece of shock and horror. ok some of the ideas in the game do not work that well for example the puzzles are very easy and can just get in the way of the game at times but all the other good things in the game allow this still to be a great game. what i mean by this is the graphics are very good and the cut scenes are just flawless in my opinion another great thing about the game has to be the enemy design they are just really well though out. i think the combat is very satisfying because even though you have a scythe and cross you can rack up endless combinations with the two and then lets not forget that we also have magic in there as well which is a nice touch.

over all i love this game and i think this is one of the gaming highs of the year i would recommend this game to any one who enjoys a good hack and slasher game 10/10 for me.

4.0 out of 5 stars Like God Of War But More Punishing And Epic. 8 Feb 2010
Platform for Display:PLAYSTATION 3
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
I got Dante's Inferno on Thursday and finished it on Sunday, normally I don't finish games so quickly like that but there's something about it that I was deeply addicted to and wanted to know what happened next. The whole game is very much like God Of War: the controls, the camera, the flawed hero, the epic feel, the intense battles and the awesome scenery. Based on the poem The Divine Comedy, Dante returns from the Cresade War only to discover a truely horrifying sight. His lover, Beatrice, has died and her soul has been taken by Luifcer. Determined to bring her back, he will have to go through the nine circles of hell: Limbo, Lust, Guttoney, Greed, Anger, Heresay, Violence, Fraud And Treachery. While he is there, he will discover people that linger in hell where you can chose either to punish or absolve them. As each circle is dangerous and disturbing, will Dante dig deep into his dark past to try and forgive his sins? Will he save Beatrice before it's too late? This game will be enough for people to sink themselves in until the day God Of War 3 arrives on our shores, another game I'm seriously looking forward too. There are some great cutscenes, lifelike during the journey and cartoon for Dante's past which is very much like Dead Space-Downfall and Tales Of The Black Freighter. This is not a game for the easily frightened, though they don't jump out it's not going to be for everyone's tastes and the things you fight against can be quite shocking. It is also punishing and frustrating at times, the puzzles are confusing if you don't know what to do and sometimes Dante's movements arren't one hundred per cent. It's intense, there is no moments of taking a breather and admiring the sights like Uncharted did, this will keep you on your toes throughout and may bring out your emotions while you are playing it. So if you loved Dead Space (this is made by the same people) or God Of War, Dante's Inferno is highly recommeneded by me.
