Can't believe people are actually voting for crud like Dante's Inferno.

Dante's Inferno...despite being a glaring GOW ripoff


^ This. Dante's Inferno is much more GoW than DMC.

As far as which one I prefer? I'd have to say DmC. Dante's Inferno was like GoW, without the depth - which itself already has less depth than DMC - except they didn't even do that great a job with it. As FireMage goes on to list: the environments were really well done and very hellish, but they start to look same-y near the end. On top of that, some of the things in DI... Well, it was just too much. It seemed like Visceral wanted to go as overboard and in-your-face as much as possible with some of their stuff and while I appreciate the attempt, it wasn't personally to my liking. (I.e. - the "lust" women that had tentacles/spikes firing out of them, or splitting open and lunging at you that way)


Shengali, I mean no offense by this, but I have no idea what your talking about o.O

You litturally go through the 9 levels of hell, and every one is completely different at the end.

Also, Lust Tentacles? Do you mean her chest?

But as other people have said, I'm having difficulty understanding how you guys see this game having less depth then GoW, followed by DmC.

(Going to summerize these as much as possible)

DMC - Half Demon going out to kill demons for a living.
GoW - A pissed off spartan, who gets revenge on the gods that let his family die, by becoming a god.
DI - A crusader indulges based off a lie, and now much go through every layer of hell to save his loved ones, only to fall into prophecy.

Please feel free to elaborate on how Dante's Inferno has the least depth out of the 3 games mentioned?


Edit:
Then theres DmC: Ragine teenage Angel/Demon hybrid, who learns to be human, and fights "Da Powa" because they pissed him off.

Personally, I appreciate that Dante's Inferno made Hell, well, hellish.

Hell is supposed to be unpleasant and "in-your-face".

I mean, I appreciate it in an "artistic integrity" kind of way. Not in an "I actually enjoy it" kind of way.

It's gross, weak gameplay, weak visuals, weak story, shameless nudity, torture, etc. I'm anti-DmC but this is just ridiculous.

Inferno was playable. At least it caught the visuals from how the poem described hell well enough (What the poem was ABOUT is another thing entirely)

This was not. And it doesn't resemble DMC at all.

My vote goes to Inferno. At least I could get past the fact that that character was not Dante the poet, as he clearly isn't. And the game didn't have controls that made my hands cramped. And at least it didn't try to pass itself off as "the best cinema and theater has to offer". Insult to the poem, in many ways though. Both are bad, but I think Inferno is the least bad of the two.

All that in addition to it being a poor man's GoW. At least Darksider's LoZ cloneness was hidden under a few layers. DI had a similar hud and orbs to GoW. He even moved and fought like Kratos.

Also, why did the enemies at the beginning just... implode?

I don't know. I only played the demo. And honestly, all that was going through my mind the whole time was "I should get GoW3."
