Dante's Inferno has it's ups and downs
So why did I rate this game just "good"? There are noticeable faults with the game. I have to disagree with others when they rate the overall flow of the game poorly. That's not what did it in in my opinion. What did it in is the fact that the game is pretty hard. When it comes to jumping to various pieces of terrain to get from area to area, it can be difficult and tiresome. You will run into some trouble and it does break the game at certain points. Especially when you are forced to repeat a few minutes of gameplay with each death. It does add a lot of length to the game though since you can't just run nonstop through it. I was a little disappointed to find out an achievement isn't placed for "zealot" difficulty which is the normal difficulty. It does pose a greater challenge than easy and I feel like it deserved one. Start to finish though, it's not too bad. Also, it's a button masher. I personally don't like button mashers but that gives me no reason to incorrectly rate this game.
Bottom-line. If you're a fan of Dante's Inferno, the book, I wouldn't approach this game for that sole reason. If you like the faith aspect of the book, that part does carry over to some degree. There's a spin to it though. If you don't like the combat or the plot, I'd stay away. But if you're looking for a different adventure game that's unique and mysterious from a plot standpoint, a fun combat system, and you have an open mind, pick up a copy or rent one and give this a try. It's definitely worth at least a single play-through.
