Adam explains why he thinks clones like Dante's Inferno need to put more innovation in their games to stand out amongst the crowd.

    I'm a GOW fan through and through and I love Dante's Inferno I've read the poem many times it's one of my favorites. I picked up the game last night, and I want to say I'm about half way done with it. I don't care if it's like GOW or not if you think it's fun and your having a good time with it then the creaters and game designers did their job they get their money and I'm a happy gamer. Everyone needs to crack open a cold one and relax.

    Seems like God of War has been coming up a lot in game comparisons lately. I played through Darksiders before ever playing any of the God Of Wars and enjoyed it. However, now that I'm playing through the God of War series, I can see the heavy influences GOW in Darksiders and a lot more of the flaws and missed opportunities in its construction.

    Dante's Inferno = God Of War 2.5
    Don't get me wrong it's still a good game, but it has all the elements of God Of War. I've played Part 1, 2 & Chains of Olympus and Dante just feels like another addition to the series.

    it seems everyone forgot that god of war it's a huge Clone from Devil may cry.....and no one said a thing about that...same exactly gameplay and boss structure....
    i just got to say....dante's inferno is a hell of a game...and i can't wait to get my hands on it.

    As time goes on; it gets harder and harder to really make something unique; and ultimately I think we just need to take the game based on weather the individual enjoys it or not

    about the comment section thing....this site has a damn good message board with minimal flame-age, probably due to the comment ratings mechanic. head over to ign.com if your really into some unintelligent. immature, and mostly worthless viewer commentary. its not pejorative. whatever that means lol

    I totally agree with you Adam, clones have always been a part of any artistic industry. The whole Dante's Inferno and the Bioshock 2 issues are just the newest iteration of fanboyism. "Game X is better then what G4 or X-Play said it is, because it is." It's comments like that have prevented the acceptance of a more adult video game culture. We should respect what some of the reviewers ( Adam included) have actually done for the industry, and some of you want to reverse that. I am glad that you are the minority. As for the trolls no doubt posting ignorant messages on the comments sections. Remember you are weak against fire.... ;)

    Dick Soup, funny stuff. (was practically obligated by my love of the absurd to dredge thru the Dante review comments)
    I don't see anything wrong with borrowing ideas, if the game is strong enough it doesn't matter how much of a "clone" it is. But at the same time I'm not going to say originality doesn't make a difference as well. I guess it's all about the final package, right?
