Title
It might not be a substitute for reading the book in your World Lit. class, but Dante’s Inferno is a worthwhile adventure that gets by on its inspired setting and tried-and-true design.

What separates it from its contemporaries is Visceral Games’ relentless depiction of hell that walks a thin line between uncomfortably gross and needless shock value. As you travel down the nine rings of hell, you hack-and-slash your way through an army of unbaptised babies, fatties who spit out excrement, and nude temptresses who have a tendency to throw their man-eating genitals at your face.

I applaud the developer’s embrace of the game’s setting, not settling out for a Teen rating, but so much of the game is filled with gruesome, needless violence that isn’t properly justified within the story. On top of this, the game plays like a 2nd rate God of War and, as good as the visuals are, it’s not as good looking.

Title
For as much flak as I give Bayonetta and Platinum overall, I know the real deal when I see it, and I know coattail-riding mediocrity. Dante's Inferno starts out with insanely good art direction that soon becomes a homogenous mess of Hell cliches, at times even being at odds with the source material outside of the ludicrous concept that gives us a videogame to begin with. A few inspired combos cannot hide gameplay that truly fails to evolve through the nine circles, an expectation for a God of War clone perhaps, but cold comfort for those of us playing it. A lack of nuance in the puzzle and boss design, or a true engagement factor for the story, only seals its identity as such.

    This is one of those games I'm surprised was able to release without issue, given that the mechanics and level design are so close to god of war it borders on plagiarism (they even took the crappy box kicking puzzles - why?) Art direction is interesting though, and suitably disgusting when called for.

    On the one hand, this game's art deserves a higher fidelity recreation; on the other hand, I don't think we'd get a faithful one.
