Default Dantes Inferno demo

This is on PSN now in North America.
It's pretty good especially if you like God Of War.

I downloaded it but didn't play it yet. From what I seen its a carbon copy of God of Wars gameplay... I mean I can't pick out a single original design choice.

Yes I heard the same thing, that this is pretty much a God of War clone...

It's exactly like GoW. Dante even seems to have the same kind of story line as Kratos. It plays well and the controls work well, but again exactly like GoW even the QT for finishing off a large monster. It's basically GoW for every platform instead of exclusive to the PS3.

I'm actually looking forward to Darksiders. It will have bigger world/areas, the graphics and the gameplay looks great on videos. The art is more cartoon-style though. Demo is still uncertain, but the game is released 5th January 2010. As I don't have a PS3 yet, Darksiders and Dante's Inferno will satisfy my hack & slash needs for some time.

Looking forward to test Dante's Inferno on the 360 when it's released.

It is God of War but with a combat system that is nowhere near as fluid.

I enjoyed the demo, I still need to pick up the God of War redux for the PS3.

I'm so buying it for 360. I love God of War and I don't even mind it copying GoW gameplay, it's just damn fun and in hell.

i agree, after recently playing through gow1 and currently half way through gow2 (redux) on spartan mode... this game is a complete clone.

as magus said, it's just not fluid. the difficulty is limited (via menus) and it's not even challenging. the only difference was the L2 button for block. i was really excited for this game, now I just feel meh. The GoW redux collection will hold me over until gow3. This just feels like they attempted to mash together an epic book with an epic game, and the results feel uninspired at best.

...on a side note, those that only own a 360 will enjoy this since they won't be touching any of the gow games.
