far to similar to God of War. but i like it :)

i'll have to give it a go to see if it's better than the sexilent bayonetta.

Sure it's very very similar to God of War, but it shouldn't ever be critisised for it. That'd be like critisising a girl for looking too much like Kelly Brook.

The game itself is excellent, having played the demo, I came away suitably impressed. The dead space team have a winner on their hands for sure.

Amazing.!

TO much action and i love it :)

I agree, borrowing so much from God of war isn't a bad thing since they have a different story/theme. I think the levels of hell idea should work well for this genre. The demo was just as fun as a God of war game, the only real difference being that GoW looks better technically.

I'm not a huge beat'em up fan, but this game should be very fun for those who love god of war games.

However, Dead Space ADDED to it's genre, while this doesn't seem to add anything to the god of war formula, but rather is a blatant copy/paste job.

i think that is a perfectly reasonable reason to criticise the game tbh. where god of war HAS to play like god of war due to design choices. dante's inferno had the potential to build upon what god of war had layed down as a foundation and turn into something better and more unique (i.e - how they took the resi 4 formula and made it much better in dead space) sadly, what the devs have done here is create a cheap clone. and while i LOVE god of war, and will ontinue to love the series, a blatant copy-cat wanabe isnt going to get my attention at all.

I think it is okay to be similair to other games as long as it is done very very well, but with their own twist.

Look at Dead Space, everyone called it "Resident Evil 4 in space" before release and look how it took gamers by surprise and called it one of the best 3rd person horror games, including me (sci-fi being a big part of it :P).

For for me, Dante's Inferno can be like God of War for all I care, but, they have to make it good. The combat is extremely smooth and fluid and the attacks and weapons have a big "punch" to them and all that runs in 60fps.

Sure it can never be as epic as God of War with its graphics and scale, but that doesnt stop them for delivering good story (i like it) and great combat and pacing.

Look at Ninja Blade for example, that game is an example of BAD rip off from Ninja Gaiden.

They tried to make it as badass, but tried awefully bad with its constant QTEs and cutscenes, boring combos and moves and weapons that didnt feel deadly as much as Ninja Gaiden. And yes I have played it.

Ripping off another game is OKAY in my opinion, but as long as they deliver it very very well.
And from what I have played, the combat is very well done and smooth (though having Scythe only as a weapon is annoying, even though it goes into 3 other "modes").
Graphics are good enough, pacing and other stuff is yet to see with the full game and the music seems to have a great score to it. Considering I know the story for Dante's Inferno it will be interesting to see how the implemented it into a game.

But that is what I think of the game so far, and yes I am going to buy the Death Edition when it comes out, along with God of War 3 the month after that.

The locked 60 fps during gameplay is extremely impressive. However, only thing in my mind when I tried the demo was "GoW 3 did this better..."
Commented on 2009-12-14 22:57:12
The Demo was surprisingly fun to play.
Commented on 2009-12-14 23:14:21
I liked it a lot more than Bayonetta. And almost equally to the GoW3 demo. GoW still has that extra punch that DI lacked.

Why Copy cat ?
Can't you not just take it as what it is ??

Some Years ago we just called it a GENRE,
now a days so many people are calling similar playstyle games clones of God of War !

Then Doom is a Castle Wolfenstein Clone
and
Heretic a Doom Clone
and
Duke Nukem a Heretic clone and so on,
until we arive here of course..Call of Duty is a Castle Wolfenstein clone.

Then you could say
that GoW is a Rygar clone,
cause Rygar was a few years earlier there.

I think what GoW did ,was refine the action game formula,
and showed people how to do it in a good way.
So sure people use it as a model !

I am just happy that another game in the same style comes out as GoW.
I love those Games,and I am happy that GoW came out and did what it did,it made our lives better,cause people now have an idea of how to do it and how not,
they have a role model like GoW.

I think we should just enjoy the game for what it is,and hopefully gives us,fun.
And not just deem it for something it reminds us of,something we mostly all enjoyed and had a good time with. I would say thats a rather pleasant thing and i am happy to get another game in that genre !

Peace

Bayonetta spoils me to the point i can't play anything else in this genre

The demo looks to be solid enough but appears just another slasher - great if you want to do it all again i guess

These types of games are fine for people that mostly only want to hack their way through some enthralling adventure.For those that want to live in the delight that is a set of sophisticated combat mechanics, it's Bayonetta 1st, Gaiden 2nd and everything else not really even a consideration

I'm sure this game will be fun enough just like every other slashe, but thank the lord this genre has at last moved on past this standard template

Looks like it could be fun. Can someone please explain to me why everyone says this looks like a God of War clone? Wouldn't it be a Ninja Gaiden clone since that game came out before God of War. Anyways this does look a lot like Ninja Gaiden. Still looks pretty fun.

Played the demo and honestly... the gameplay is slower and not so good/dynamic as GOW gameplay. Visuals reminds me PS2 game in HD, only good thing is frame rate. No slow downs, but with these kind of visuals it wasn't hard to achieve. I know that game developers can copy ideas from other games but that what they made in DI... for me it is to much.

Pls Gamersyde can you upload at least 1 video in 60 fps, all videos have only 30 fps. Game runs at 60 fps.
Commented on 2009-12-16 01:48:11
unknown_23 how gameplay in 60 fps can be slower than 30?
Dante is 60fps game Gow is 30 on average.
Developers decided to make game in 60fps. When you do 30fps game you can pump up details a lot. Actually is not "easy" to make 60 fps game. Its very hard.

I still say Dead Space is basically just RE4. It just does everything RE4 does and does it a whole lot better. That's all this game needs to do even if it does play a lot like GOW.
Commented on 2009-12-20 17:06:33
I may pick this game up. Played the demo and found it pretty enjoyable. I really couldn't care less that it's essentially a God of War rip-off as long as it plays well and has stuff in it to keep me entertained.

I agree with You, that 60 fps make game faster, but game speed depends not only on fps number, there are other things that can make gameplay faster. For example Bayonetta PS3 demo runs only 30fps but for me this game is a lot faster than Dante's Inferno (with solid 60 fps).
