New Releases: What upcoming games are you looking forward to?
Well, there's a great character design, the graphics are pretty cool and the plot is interesting, but the gameplay is too much trite, and It have nothing to do with Divine Comedy.
The Beatrice character is supposed to be the coolest thing ever, what will help Dante to understand the evil that man do, but in this game is just "another princess to save". And of course I don't like this Dante, with a schythe stole from the Death... excessive. And yeah, there's no mention about his italian origins, here in Italy (yep, I'm italian, pizza spaghetti e colosseo) Dante Alighieri is the father of Italian Language, but in the game he's not a poet, is not a philosopher, he's just a templar knight (???) and, for what I've seen, is pretty dumb.
Of course from a game called Dante's Inferno I was expecting a revisitation of Divine Comedy, but seriously... that's not Divine Comedy. That's God Of War with Dante on steroids. But still, is pretty enjoyable, funny, the plot is not too bad (the idea of a templar knight who passed his life in sins, but now he must face them for prove his love and search for redemption is kinda awesome) and there's violence. Everybody loves violence in videogames! :P
