Good but beware....

I don't have any particular ax to grind about it's perceived similarities to some other action game.

The story isn't bad, for purist remember it's "inspired by" not a transcription of the original poem. Much like movies are "inspired by" something.....

I would change my rating from a 6 to an 8 if not for a few details.

1. Save Points - this can be annoying. For example: Save point x is in location A. Right before you need to go out of your way for items 1,2 and 3. At location B their is a puzzle/obstacle where you may die a few times until you figure it out. This means if you don't want to abandon items 1.2 and 3 you need to go and reacquire them prior to further attempts at whatever the puzzle/obstacle is. If you're a completionist get ready for a lot of repetition.

2. Platforming/Puzzles - some of the platforming is pretty weak. You may find yourself dieing over and over not trying to figure out a puzzle, but time everything exactly right. I'm not talking about the typical timed puzzles we're all used to where there is a little wiggle room. In one particularly annoying puzzle the solution was pretty straight forward, but the actual execution took 1/2 hour to work out. For me these types of things kill replay value, because you never want to repeat this section.

This game, has to be one of the worst games made.
All it is, is a rip-off, of God of war (a poor one at that)

It wasnt even close to being difficult on any note.
First play-through was 4.5 hours on second hardest difficulty, second play-through, 4 hours on hardest difficulty.

Only 2 weapons, some meager spells.

Not to mention the DLC that came out the same day or day after with it.

All in all, if youre just looking for something to do, play this game. othewise, wait another month for GoW 3.

The inferno is hot! great game, good upgradable skills and magic, alot of nudity but what do you expect? its set in the freakin 1300's. Plays alot like god of war and the upgrades work the same way as kratos's. Well worth it. You should definately play this game. Only negative i found is the game is too short to me. I beat it in less than 14 hrs. I would like the sequel to be longer. OOPS! Did i let that one out?!?!!?!!?!?!
