Hi.

I have a question about this particular game. First I want to know if anyone have completed the game without ever going online or having an online connection to your xbox360. The reason is I've read a review that says that you have to download one of the games modes. In the review it says this

"One of the game's modes you have to download as DLC, and that's just plain annoying. If the game wasn't finished, then why the hell didn't they delay it for a couple of weeks? Crap."

Now I don't have an online connection on my Xbox360 were I have the game and I fear that I have to download something to go through the whole main campaign and see the ending. Can someone confirm that I can complete Dante's Inferno being offline on my Xbox360 and never downloading anything?

I completed it without going online, played it through numerous times (cause the main story is kind of short...6 hours and I dig for extra stuff while playing)

I played it on Xbox 360, I don't remember downloading anything extra... I don't think.

Awesome game though. Gets too much crap for being a God of War clone, but it's a good one, did a better job at being a God of War clone in 2010 than God of War 3 was.

I think there are no online features for this game, except for the trials DLC.

TC: I played it offline with no problems. I played it upon it's release back in 2010. Decent game for me, I gave it a 7/10 back in the day. Here's the Gamespot.com review with a video (6.5/10), if that helps.

I agree it was a an okay-decent GOW clone. I'd say it was fun, but it wasn't great and kind of rote looking back...although the last half of the game was pretty repetitive, including the last two levels which weren't nearly as fun as the rest of the game, and the enemies were reused way too frequently. That said, I'm boggled by your comparison to GOW 3, which was fantastic by comparison. I love these hack and slash games though (Bayonetta, Devil May Cry, Darksiders, etc). I would have given Dantes a 7/10 after beating it twice and getting 1000/1000 GS. I was lucky enough to play these two games back to back since they released a month apart.

I'm curious about the metascore since the comparison was thrown out and the games released a month apart back in 2010:

73/100 metascore - Dante's Inferno

That seems about right based on my time with the game, fun but with flaws. I loved the lore, so I remember thinking it could have used a few more months of development and polish, but I'm guessing they wanted to release before GOWIII released, and the multiplatform devs did manage to release and beat GOW3 release by a month.

GOWIII was an 8.5 out of 10 for me (it was flawed too, but far more polished and well crafted) after completing it a few times back then (92/100 metascore - GOW 3)

Of course, in the year 2016 looking back at 2010 games, things may seem different but I did play these games when they were at their freshest. As opposed to some that play games way later and unfortunately are forced to compare sometimes far too late (A kid playing 2010's Halo Reach today may not feel it's the 9/10 game, Street Fighter, GTA, COD, etc.). Like say, If I decided to play GOW 3 2015's Remaster that just released and look back at my 2010 Dante's Inferno memories (which would be a flawed comparison), it wouldn't be nearly as fair or accurate.

I do believe we all have on our own opinions though, and I respect yours, but I was just shocked at the comparison.

The very first post is your answer, can't you read?

I got and loved it day 1. I completed it before the DLC was out. However, while you can finish the game, you will miss out the challenges (made by other players and thus online).

I know I got an answer, but I guess it is my ocd that is acting up. I just would like to know if anyone actually saw the ending of the game after you defeat Lucifer, without having an internet connection on their Xbox360? That is really it. I am very ocd about my games

I don't remember any need to dl anything. What I remember is the last few circles of hell are like challenge rooms. Really lazy way to finish the game.
