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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic game, perfect for PSP 27 July 2010
Platform for Display:Sony PSP
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I bought this on PS3 and it was rubbish, I felt that it was a underwhelming experience for the PS3's capabilities. On the advice of the PSP podcast and because I am due to go to Orlando next week, I bought this to play on the plane. I have got to say that this is perfect for the PSP. The graphics look great, the screen is crisp, the action is fun & frenetic and the storyline is the same as the PS3's. It's a shame I didn't go for this version as it totally works on the PSP platform, but it teaches me a lesson in not writing off my PSP just yet as there are a plethora of good games out there. If you loved God of War:Chains of Olympus, then this is right up there with it.

4.0 out of 5 stars A challenging game with some cool fights. 16 Oct 2010
By Ckav
Platform for Display:Sony PSP
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I've never read Dante's inferno, so while I can't comment on the how faithful the game is to it, I can say that generally the game is very good - the animations are realistic and the cartoon style flashbacks make things interesting. Fighting is only repeditive if you make it so, with some cool moves if you mix and match properly. The system of leveling up abilities is also novel (for me at least).

Some might find some elements of it distateful; I personally wasn't particularly keen on the babies with knives for hands in the limbo section, but then it is an 18. Some of the puzzles were also sightly mind boggling but with patience you can get them eventaully, likewise some of the jump sequences required to get up and down take a little lateral thinking.

All in all though, quite definitely worth the money, and I would highly reccomend it to those who like fighting games and puzzle games alike.

Fun: 3.0 out of 5 stars   
Borrowed this game off of a friend to pass a few boring afternoons. What I discovered, having not paid a penny for it, was gameplay amateurish and stale. People make the comparison between God of War and Dante's Inferno, in the level up and combo systems, but there is none of the well-sculpted originality of GOW here, only a bland emulation.

Perhaps it is a poor translation to PSP. Perhaps the game wasn't all that great to begin with, but there a sensation of unrewarding toil in Dante's Inferno without very much reward. Still, at least some of the boss battles are fun!

5.0 out of 5 stars Good, atmospheric game 8 May 2011
By Blauj

Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
An adventure game that drew me in like a good role playing game (as strong as Crisis Core and the background feel was like resistance retribution or Manhunt). Theme-wise it was dark and scary, the puzzles were appropriately fiendish, and the gameplay was fun and exciting.
I wish I could play it all over again. Looks and played awesome, garphics are fine and I have no complaints. I played the game on the difficult setting, and found this presented about the right challenge level.

3.0 out of 5 stars Very good game! 9 Dec 2010

Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
I am a little bit disappointed cos I thought that Dantes Inferno will be as good as God of War, but the truly is that is not so good. Is far away from GoW's standards(effect, gameplay, story) but it have very creepy music and more magic. anyway, I recommend this game only for the fans of this kind of games (one man show! :P)
