Product Description

Based on the immensely influential classic poem, Dante's Inferno takes you on an epic quest of vengeance and redemption through the Nine Circles of Hell. You are Dante, a veteran of the Crusades who must chase his beloved Beatrice and try to free her soul from Lucifer’s grasp. As your pursuit takes you deeper into the pits of Hell, you must battle ever more fierce and hideous monsters-while also facing your own sins, a dark family past, and your unforgivable war crimes.

Amazon.com

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 beautifully rendered nonstop action, 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.

Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Despite being a 24 year-old female, I enjoy playing good action adventure games on PSP whenever I am bored (on a stationary bike, on a bus, on a plane etc). After reading rave reviews on "God of War: Chains of Olympus" I got it and absolutely loved it. After hearing through the grapevine that Dante's Inferno is very similar to GOW, I just had to buy it as well. Here are my 2 cents after beating the game.
I'll start with the "bad", which didn't make me think this game was worthy of 5 stars: 1. It is indeed a full-on clone of GOW and 2.it is equally short. Everything from the concept of the game (yes, story lines are different but they are very similar at the same time) to controls and action moves is pretty much copied from GOW. I am no expert in videogaming at all, but it didn't take me that long to beat the game, so I imagine someone with more experience will get through with it in less than 10 hours of gametime. As someone said in their review, good games should last you over 30 hours to be worth every penny.
Nonetheless, it is an excellent game. Controls are smooth and intuitive (although it is a little annoying that you can't change camera angle at all); Dante's moves are full of fierce grace and the Matrix-like slo-mo effect during battle sequences actually looks very cool. Backdrops are insanely detailed and and full of quite disturbing, but altogether stunning imagery; cut scenes are gorgeous and very very well-made (light years ahead of, say Daxter or Tomb Raider, and actually superior to GOW's as well).
Altogether, I would recommend this game to a GOW fan or to anyone who wants a rather mindless but very well crafted entertainment. A word of warning though: this game has a "MATURE" rating for a good reason. It is quite gory and is also full of quite blatant sexual innuendo (which is actually more funny than anything).

5.0 out of 5 stars God of War meets... a different storyline! March 10, 2010
By Natacon

Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I picked up Dante's Inferno earlier in the week. Very good game. It's almost exactly like God of War except with a different storyline. Just as bloody, just as much destruction and a story of redemption. There's a few differences (mainly more nudity than GOW), but overall, a very good game. My only complaint has been a few glitches during the cutscenes, not enough to turn anyone off though. My advice? Pick this one up. Rent it first if you want to get a feel for the game, but it's good. Very fun and you can't get better stress relief than smashing through ten demons.

This review is for those who need to decide on getting Dante's Inferno for the PSP or for the home consoles (PS3/Xbox360). Quick conclusion: get the console version if you can, it's much better and complete. If you want to know more keep reading.

I have played both versions of Dante's Inferno for the home consoles (Xbox 360 in my case) and PSP, and the PSP version is definitively a VERY watered down version, it's not bad, it's a VERY GOOD game and IS the same game than the home consoles (same history, same levels, same phase, same characters, etc.), but the developers removed a lot of features and even some gameplay aspects, maybe because of the hardware limitations of the PSP? Not enough space in the UMD? I don't know.

In the PSP version a lot of things were removed, for example, the "puzzle" were you have to move the crate in the Charon boat was removed (along some other little puzzles like this). Other things removed were the mini-game that plays when you absolve a soul, also ALL of the relics were removed (you don't collect relics in the PSP version, just the Silver Coins) and some parts that were playable in the home console version are now converted to video (a video plays showing the action that was playable in the home console).

A lot of sounds were removed too making the PSP version somewhat a bland one in the sound aspect, this is hard to explain but you can notice it if you played the home console version which is richer in sounds of the tormented souls, fire and beast of the inferno; fortunately all the voices from the different characters are intact. In the graphics department I give it credit, some of the best graphics I've seen on the PSP, no complains here. Now for the camera...

5.0 out of 5 stars Must Buy It!! March 9, 2010
Platform for Display:Sony PSP
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I just got this game last week. I played for couple hours and love it!!! The graphic is very good (for PSP wise) and story line is not bad. The only thing is my right thumb gets tired all the time. It's not a bad game if you love God of War. The control is easy, so you should be able to pickup in few seconds.

This game reminds me of God of War, which is never a bad thing. I love the game and I am addicted to it already. It's definitely one of those games you could play over and over. Not one time and that's it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Dantes Medieval Vision of HELL March 27, 2010
Platform for Display:Sony PSP
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Have you ever wondered what hell might look like? Dante's Inferno offers an incredibly vivid and detailed hypothesis. The game is based on the 14th-century Italian poem by Dante Alighieri, but Dante never could have imagined a hell this visually captivating. The walls themselves crawl with the bodies of the damned, other lost souls intermitently rain from the sky burning in torturous flames. In the distance, great columns of souls can be seen marching along monolithic causeways. The air is acrid with smoke and charred flesh, pierced by screams, fitful sparks and motes of ash. Each of the nine circles is here, along with the river Acheron and Limbo, and each setting is distinctive and fiendishly impressive. Through it all Vergil is your guide, just as in the poem.

The gameplay is fluid and satisfying, with Dante boasting an array of combos with either his scythe, stolen from Death himself, or his cross that Beatrice gave to him. There are a variety of trinkets to collect - from the 30 pieces of silver received in ramsom by Judas to dozens of relics that Dante can equip to enhance his abilities.

Dante attempts to rescue his lover Beatrice from the clutches of the Damned.along the way, Dante encounters many Lost Souls from various historical and mythological points in history,the player's interaction with these characters is not merely discourse, however, as Dante holds the power to either absolve these Lost Souls of the sins which condemned them to Hell, or hand down the ultimate Punishment instead. I consider this to be a brilliant mechanic that serves to immerse the player in a very personal manner, as it tends to compel the player to actually reflect on his/her own views of sin and punishment before deciding a Lost Soul's ultimate fate. Very well-executed.

I had very high hopes for this title, but it has far exceeded even those. This game is one of the best I have ever played.Do your self a favor and BUY DANTE'S INFERNO!!
