Hehehe... I remember that singing box. That's still one of the funniest non-videos I've ever seen on this site. Great review and I'll probably never play this game.

Great review, Yahtzee. This game is definitely one of the most blatant God of War clones out there. Even the opening music is a rip off of God of War. It is a shame there isn't multiple endings, though. Then again, its only ending is lame enough.

Not really informative as reviews go, but seeing as I had no intention of playing this game in the first place that's alright. A number of good 1-liners in it

i swear that video was just one massive wank joke.
it was good though im gona use that right hand one
Oddly apt as Dantes inferno itself is WANK!

I always feel an odd sense of levity when Yahtzee hates a game as much as I did.

I'm actually surprised he didn't mention that this is the second adaptation of the Divine Comedy.
First one being Devil May Cry.

Yahtzee's reviews have been getting a lot better lately. This one was awesome. I wish I had more to say about it.

Amusing video as always, but does Yahtzee have a cold? His voice sounded really hoarse and strained. Poor guy, he should take some soup, drink lots of liquids and play something good until he gets better.

Interesting review Yahtzee, but I'm beginning to wonder if maybe you're stretching yourself too thin and perhaps not putting as much care into your ZP videos as you once did. IDK I could just be imagining things.

Hmmm...lotta hairy bum & wanking references in this weeks review. Makes one wonder if Yahtzee received a proper review copy of Dante's Inferno or did some mischievous clerk in the mail room slip some Japanese eroge knock-off into Yahtzee's parcel?

Despite every reviewer saying "it's like God of War but" I'll eventually give this a try as it doesn't seem an absolute travesty of a game and as I don't own nor do I plan to own a Playstation (console or handheld) it would seem this is the closest I'll ever get to actually playing God of War. Yay console-exclusivity! :(

More amusing than usual: I lol'd several times. I've actually been hearing that it's worth a rental if just for the visuals, so I might do that.

And for chrissake Yahtzee, get some lozenges for your throat. You sounded like your larynx was going to fly out your mouth and splatter on your monitor.

From day one, people were shouting "god of war rip off" and I was expecting Yatzee to be a bit more original. However, still an enjoyable critic.

I don't mind Dante's Inferno actually. I enjoy it a lot. To be honest, I was waiting for that type of game. I wanted to see something like God of War in a new setting and hell is fine by me. I like the mechanics of GOW, but I don't care anymore about the Greek mythology setting.

Yes, the game rips GOW, but has a lot of flaws. The upgrade system is not that rewarding and worth the effort, but playing it without worrying about the extras is really enjoyable and it's all that matters to me.

Despite the crowds of God of War and Yahtzee fanboys (that I do fall into but more rational), I'm still going comment on the game positively.

I liked this game, good fun if you like the genre. I would say it's no God of War but 3 isn't out yet and DI is just like 1 and 2 haha! Anyway, good game, not the best due to lack of originality but then again that's why we're going to love God of War III.
