haven't played the game but i LOVED the animated movie

I haven't played the game but i LOVED the animated movie and it's one of the best animated movies I've ever seen, it's creepy, it's gruesome, it's bloody, it's action packed, it's scary, it's intense, it's brutal, it's dark, it's gritty, and it's disturbing, just the way I like it, in other words, it's a great action packed horror film

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (16 ):
Kids say (26 ):

While Dante's Inferno is a technically solid game, it's hard not to miss the striking similarities between God of War. From the way players boost their health and magic meters to the attacks and tactics used by players, the game often mimics Sony's highly successful action game. It's very difficult to ignore the similarities, but the imitation works for the most part. Combat against lesser foes can be intense and pulling off some combos is gratifying, but none of the game's signifcant encounters are particularly epic or memorable. Also, the game's campaign grows tedious as you approach the game's final levels. For adult players seeking a thrilling "hack-and-slash" adventure, don't settle for the carbon copy when its inspiration is far better.
