When I first played the demo for this game on the PS3, I was completely blown away. I knew that I had to play this game as soon as it was released. My enthusiasm diminished a little after reading the GameSpot review but I still thought the game was worth a try. It most definitely was. I greatly enjoyed playing the PS3 version and imagined it to be a preview of what God of War 3 may be like. The action was fantastic, the puzzles were few and far between but not nonexistent, and the story glued me to my chair. Suffice it to say, it was a great game.
I would have to say that one is doing a disservice to the PSP version by comparing it too much to the console version. It may feel a little stripped down but I believe that they were able to preserve as much of what made the console version great as was possible. I was very impressed with this game and how much they were able to squeeze into that little UMD. There were a couple of times, when transitioning from one circle of "h-e-double hockey sticks" to another, where I would have had no idea what was going on if I hadn't already played the console version a couple of times. They also removed some more of the challenging parts even though the difficulty in combat seemed somewhat greater. Still, just as a movie is never as great as the book it's based on, we learn to watch the movie first. I envy anyone who plays the PSP version of Dante's Inferno first and then plays the console version.
