Dante’s Inferno is an epic single player, third-person action adventure game inspired by "Inferno", part one of Dante Alighieri’s classic Italian poem, "The Divine Comedy." Featuring nonstop action rendered at 60 frames-per-second, signature and upgradable weapons, attack combos and mana-fueled spells and the choice of punishing or absolving the souls of defeated enemies, it is a classic Medieval tale of the eternal conflict with sin and the resulting horrors of hell, adapted for a new generation and a new medium.

Story
The Italian mercenary Dante returns home from the bloodletting that was the Third Crusade to two pieces of soul-crushing news. The first is that although he was assured that he was absolved of mortal sins committed in the form of wartime atrocities in the name of the churches interests in the Holy Land, that is not actually the case and his immortal soul is in grave peril. The second and more terrible is that his beloved Beatrice has been murdered, and her soul pulled down into hell by a dark force. Vowing not to accept the damnation of either souls, he gives chase, vows to get Beatrice back and descends into the infamous nine circles of hell. For weapons, he wields Death's soul-reaping scythe, and commands holy powers of the cross, given to him by Beatrice.

Scythe Combat
To vanquish the foes you encounter on your journey through the hell of Dante's Inferno, you must learn to wield Death's Scythe with precision and deadly force. Mix light attacks with heavy attacks to create combos, then incorporate jumps and grabs to add another layer to your combat. With dodging and Holy Cross moves thrown into the mix, you can truly become a force to be reckoned with. Without using all of your combative skills and techniques, there is no hope of ever reaching Beatrice.

Holy Powers
During your journey, you may collect magic abilities for use against the legions of hell. When you perform the Righteous Path power you make a dash attack and leave a trail of icy shards in your wake. With Martyrdom you sacrifice health and mana to deal a heavy amount of damage to surrounding enemies. Divine Armor regenerates your health and protects you from damage. Add these and other powers to your arsenal to vanquish all who stand in your way and when you need to replenish your mana-fueled abilities, visit the Holy Fountains scattered throughout the gameplay area.

Creature Taming
As powerful as weapons and magic are, sometimes surviving the perils of hell requires brute force. With the power of Death's Scythe, you are able to mount the beasts of hell and use them against your enemies. All of this, however, requires ridding the beast of its current rider first. If successful, you will become the beast’s new master. Now use its awesome power to pulverize enemies and complete tasks that require a beast's strength.

Key Game Features

  • Epic story adapted from the first book of the Medieval Italian classic The Divine Comedy, by Dante Alighieri.

5.0 out of 5 stars Pure Indulgence February 9, 2010
Platform for Display:PlayStation 3
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Make no mistake, this game is pure guilty pleasure, hack and slash, dim the lights and camp out on the couch, eye candy goodness. It's LOOSELY based on the poem and isn't about to change your life in any profound way, unless you really love graphics and design work I guess. They basically use the structure of Hell that Dante established and build their own descent from there. The thing about their design that I am absolutely beside myself about is that they had Wayne Barlowe doing the concept. The man is amazing and has basically built his career out of conceptualizing Hell and you can find his books of Hell re-imagined on Amazon as well, which I highly recommend if you're a Dante (the actual poet) fanatic like myself.

His work here is amazing and the graphics are astounding. My only complaint, really, is that you can't actually angle the camera yourself. Which tends to become a bit of a nuisance at best when you're trying to admire the terrific landscape and at worst when you're trying to fight and your enemy moves out of sight. Having the camera adjust itself can really become a thorn in your side at times, but overall, it's an issue I'm willing to overlook in light of all I enjoy about the game. As they've stated multiple times on their production videos, they use a pretty high framerate (believe it's 60 fps) and it definitely shows. The flow is fantastically smooth and seamless. The animated clips are a bit on the cheese side, but the CGI cutsceens are pretty high quality. They also don't make the mistake, like a lot of current games do, of overburdening the game with these cutsceens. For me, they can become a major hindrance to the game's flow very quickly, as I like to play my games, not watch a glorified cartoon. Luckily, Dante does not suffer from this in the least.

3.0 out of 5 stars A game that could have been much more February 15, 2010
By Eric H
Platform for Display:PlayStation 3|Verified Purchase
Fun: 3.0 out of 5 stars   
First off I'd like to say that I don't review games unless I have completed the game. How can someone review a game with only playing it for an hour? I was very excited for this game; the graphics are great, creepy atmosphere, good story, lots of blood and guts, spectacular controls, great stuff. Unfortunately there were a few things about this game that really sucked. It was only 6-7 hours long. That was a huge disappointment. Also, the first 3 levels were very good, but the rest seemed to be lacking in development including enemy variety. Also, the puzzles were really not that interesting and just seemed to slow you down. I did really enjoy the game, and would definitely recommend it, but I wish I had rented this game first. $60 is a lot of money to spend on a game that you only play for 12 hours tops. The games that are really good I play at least 30 hours.

Pros
1) Graphics and sound
2) Creepy and Grotesque atmosphere
3) Controls
4) Battle is fun

Cons
1) Way to short 6-8 hours
2) Recycled enemies
3) Puzzles
4) Some level designs

Conclusion

I feel this was a very entertaining game and I had a good time playing it, awesome graphics and sound, disturbing and gross, and fun battle scenes. Because it was so short and the enemy's were recycled I wish I had rented the game instead of buying it.

4.0 out of 5 stars Far from Hellish... May 31, 2011
By --
Platform for Display:PlayStation 3|Verified Purchase
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
Wow, what a great idea for a game. Take the classic descent into Hell, ripped from the pages of medeival poet Dante Alighieri's "The Divine Comedy," but just make it all a little more kickass -- for example, instead of Dante the poet as the protagonist, let's make Dante a scythe-wielding crusader with a cross stitched into his bare chest. And do it in the style of the classic action franchise "God of War." Yeah, that's what I'm talkin' 'bout right there! What a concept!

Well, I'd be lying if I said this game wasn't fraught with missed opportunities. But not nearly as many as you've probably heard. Critics were unduly harsh back in early 2010 when "Dante's Inferno" streeted, perhaps because it is undeniably a "God of War" clone and perhaps because the game does admittedly lose some steam near its conclusion. But as for me, I had more fun slashing my way through Hell than I've had in quite some time. Gamespot's score of a 6.5 out of 10, for example, certainly doesn't do this game justice. "Dante's Inferno" may not deliver on all of its many promises, but it comes damn close.

Again, you are cast as Dante, but not the Dante we know from history. This Dante is a deeply flawed individual who manages to earn your affections merely because of his stubborn refusal to accept his fate, or that of his lover Beatrice whose soul is condemned to Hell for having a little too much faith in his virtue. He's a dark, brooding character in much the same vein as Kratos from "God of War" (which is undoubtedly not a coincidence). And like Kratos, he's a real badass.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great Game But........... February 9, 2010
By Bean
Platform for Display:PlayStation 3
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
Okay, I picked this game up and it has exceeded my expectations. It plays like God of war and it has a very interesting story line. The only thing I would take out of the game is all of the blatant sexual inuendo. I am an hour into the game and I have seen babies explode out of pus filled nipples with tongues, huge golden penis statues, vagina wall entrances and last but not least, the flaming rectal sphincters. Yes, I said flaming rectal sphincters. Who thinks of this stuff? Seriously, I think the game could have done without that, but it is truly disturbing and it adds hellish authenticity to the game. After seeing this depiction of hell I think I am going to start going to church again! The game plays very well, just make sure your kids dont walk in on you when you are playing it because it makes for an awkward moment. I actually pushed the off button on the console to make the nipples squirting babies out of them dissapear so my kids did not see it. I ended up having to retrace the level because I did not save before that. With all of that said, the game is a solid 4.5
