    Cruising the Inferno is fun, brutal, and raw.

    Dante's Inferno is the story of Durante (Dante) Alighieri, and his memorable trip through hell. Unlike the famous writer of "The Divine Comedy", this Dante is a tough crusader who wields a devastating weapon: Death's Scy... Read Full Review

    Non stop enjoyment

    Dante's Inferno may be thought of as a God of War rip-off. And it is. In many ways. But just like its predecessor, there is still a lot of fun to be had.The story is a simple one. You are on a quest for revenge for the ... Read Full Review

    Dante's Inferno

    I seriously can't deal with GameSpot still having the wrong box art so I am going to just arbitrarily shove it in here. It may seem something silly to get worked up over but it's kind of one of my main tenets here: the ... Read Full Review

    Potential is there

    Audio: Fantastic voice acting, Good sound track, and solid yet repetitive sound effects. Visuals: Characters look good. Environments look good as well but get rather repetitive and stale near the end of the game. ... Read Full Review

    Dante's Inferno has it's ups and downs

    The good things first. The storyline in Dante's Inferno isn't too bad at all. The cut scenes are well-made but graphical in terms of nudity. It doesn't have a dry point in it and goes pretty smoothly in terms of vocals a... Read Full Review

    When Dante Inferno came out I though I was in hell myself on the couch. With the wind blowing my hair back!@HEIl

    Hell is somewhere nobody wants to see but Dante has a chance, at least to him as he is brought to the hells game. Died people and alive feeling sick makes walls which they scream for help. This is a game for adults so yo... Read Full Review

    Abandon hope, all ye who enter here.

    Were that there were copyrights for gameplay. Sony's God of War franchise, as I have always stated, sucks - but they might have gleaned even more cash by suing EA for making such an absolute rip off of their games. ... Read Full Review

    The PSP version of Dante's Inferno is not bad, and probably worth getting on your hands.

    When i heard of Dante's Inferno was coming out i was like "Come on! Don't f**k up something based on a poem, which was important to read!" Basically, i thought it was gonna suck, i was 85% wrong. I was in Best Buy, lo... Read Full Review

    While an admirable attempt at creating it's own path, this halfhearted attempt at a god of war clone falls short.

    To say that the story of Dante's Inferno was uninteresting would be lying. The setting carries the narrative on it's back and the result is a visual tour de force that leaves the senses tingling. However, once the novelt... Read Full Review

    The Developers at Viseral games should be ashamed at this stupid game.

    First: The Divine Comedy is a literary work of art as a "poet" journeys through the inner sanctums of hell. Dante's Inferno however, forgets all poetic and artist imagary that the Divine Comedy present and we are left... Read Full Review
