Every Hero Wants To Be Like Kratos

Gameplay - 6/10
Storyline - 7/10
Graphics - 7/10
Game Score : 20/30

Dante's Inferno is a 2010 action-adventure video game developed by Visceral Games and published by Electronic Arts for the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 consoles. The game was also released on the PlayStation Portable and was developed by Artificial Mind and Movement. The story is named after Inferno, the first canticle of Dante Alighieri's Divine Comedy, but shares little with the canticle beyond the character's name and the setting. The game follows the exploits of Dante (reimagined as a Templar knight) as he journeys through the nine circles of Hell to reclaim the soul of his beloved Beatrice from the hands of Lucifer.

Dante's Inferno is a third-person action-adventure game . The player controls Dante, the game's protagonist, and engages in fast-paced combat, platforming and environment-based puzzles. In the game, Dante's primary weapon is Death's scythe that can be used in a series of combination attacks and finishing moves. His secondary weapon is a Holy Cross that fires a volley of energy as a projectile attack. In addition, Dante can use numerous magic based attacks and abilities channeled from a mana pool to help in combat, many of which are obtained as the game progresses. A quick time event system is used when attempting to discharge the demon of its master and during boss fights, where players must press the highlighted button on screen in order to continue the chain of attacks, or be countered and wounded otherwise.

While playing this game I could not help but notice the very similar game-play of the God of War series in many aspects. From the combat system, to the leveling of weapons, to the quick-time events; the list goes on and on. With that being said fans of Kratos will have no problems jumping right into this game with a basic understanding of its functionality. Not to mention the hack and slash game-play we have all come to know and love with varying fountains of blood gushing all over...
