Im not talking about you the_hawk, just saying alot of people probably didnt play Dantes Inferno because of this 'god of war ripoff' preconceptions, and ruined what could have been a great trilogy.
Dantes Inferno is a a great game, another hack n slash game, but a great one at that. Does not need to be compared to God of War at all. A separate, intriguing story, a great character with great development, and great level design and bosses, all of which had thought and imagination put into.
IMO, Dantes Inferno is better than God of War in many ways.
Got a good bit further into it last night, the above is fair comment, the more I'm playing of it, the more I'm really really enjoying it. It IS very like God of War in terms of both gameplay and atmosphere but that's no bad thing & I'm gutted that it hasn't got the recognition and therefore sequels it deserved as there are some incredible touches in it.
I did learn one thing though, I'd do a terrible job of being God, I find it REALLY difficult to send people to damnation, I end up absolving all the poor souls I find down there!
