Dante’s Inferno created such an uproar from everyone before it was released. Some were outraged at the controversial content and way in which it was advertised. Others were excited by the prospect of such an epic game, which drew inspiration from an equally epic book. Still others couldn’t wait to get through all the different levels and sins of the underworld.
Unfortunately, the game is all talk, and does not live up to expectations. More »
Having not ever read Dante Alighieri’s Divine Comedy I was excited to finally see what all the fuss was about. While this might not be the best representation of the 12th Century poet, I found it to be a pleasurable experience none the less. Before I go any further I must admit that even though Visceral Games did an astonishing job at reviving the survival horror genre with Dead Space, I feared that not even they could adapt an epic poem into an entertaining video game franchise. With that said, the God of War style combat is intriguing, so I sat down with the Animated Epic in hopes that I wouldn’t be totally lost when I finally get my hands on the game. More »

Dante’s Inferno isn’t actually out yet but you wouldn’t think that to look at EA’s marketing machine. While a game based on classical literature doesn’t sound like everybody’s cup of tea, buzz around the business is that this is going to be one of EA’s hits of 2010. From the studio that hit it big last year with Dead Space, Dante’s Inferno has also had the support power of EA’s creative, influential and ultimately well-funded marketing department. They’ve been doing some weird stuff - sending out packages representative of the seven sins to game reveiwers, for instance - but nothing quite as expensive, or hopefully as market-capturing, as their incoming Superbowl Ad. Industry Gamers recently sat down with the executive producer of Visceral Games, Jonathan Knight, to talk. More »

I’ve been extremely skeptical about how good the new Dante’s Inferno for PS3 is going to be. Mostly this was because of the extreme over-hyping it’s been getting. There was so much about how controvercial the game will be, but so little about the actual game. I recently downloaded the 7 Developer Diaries from the PSN. The diaries discuss features and aspects of the new video game… one circle of Hell at a time. More »
2010 is going to be a year of sequels. We’ve gotten a jump start for this with Assassin’s Creed 2 and Modern Warfare 2, and the list will only take off from there. Next year promises us another Final Fantasy game, another Castlevania game, another Bioshock game and so many more. But there are plenty of games set for release in 2010 that do not have any numbers after their names.
Here are 12 brand new games to celebrate a brand new decade. More »
The game Dante’s Inferno (for PS3) is based on the Epic Poem Dante’s Inferno… seems redundant to state this, doesn’t it? The book is a classic: it has epic scenes and descriptions of the 9 circles of hell, crazy monsters and demons, detailed descriptions of the sinners and their punishments, and just overall a crazy amount of STUFF to pack into a video game. And everyone has probably heard of the video game by now, thanks to the not-so-conventional methods of advertising that Dante’s Inferno (the game) is using.
You should have known there would be a but. And here it is: After playing the demo, it’s clear that the game takes some liberties and changes things around in the original story. More »
