@ Motrin - GoW is an excellent game. It doesn't frustrate me that Dante's Inferno copied it as much as the fact that they executed it poorly. For example: In GoW, to rotate a lever you rotate the analog stick in a circular motion in the same direction that you are moving in the game. With Inferno, you hold the annalog stick in one direction (left or right) which seems like it would be simpler but actually feels less intuitive. The environmental puzzles are frustrating because of the forced camera angles not because they are clever. The beasts that you ride look cool but they move SO SLOWLY that if you need to do something quickly then you're better of getting off and doing it with Dante... but of course you can't dismount. If you don't grab your health and magic before you get on one then kiss it goodbye.

It's nothing like the Divine Comedy actually. The plot is actually kinda goofy. It's not all bad though. The in-game character models are pretty awful, especially up close, but the cinematics are gorgeous. I wish they would have done the Divine Comedy as just a high end animation. The combat feels pretty good and is fairly satisfying. Except for the puzzles the action moves along well. I like the weapon upgrading, the magic, and the relics which you can equip two at a time to add tweaks to your abilities. For example, one of them in particular gives you an extra second between moves to keep your combo chain going. You can level it up to 3 seconds by using it. Nice.

It's not a BAD game by any means. I haven't gotten bored yet and I'm almost finished. It could have been SO much better though. If you are ONLY getting it BECAUSE you heard that it's like GoW and you've never played GoW, then I'd recommend trying GoW Collection for PS3 instead. If you played the demo and enjoyed it then you'll probably like the game OK though.

I doubt I'll play Bioshock 2. Didn't like the 1st one. I hate first person shooters.

@casey i can't wait to play bioshock 2. and about the graphics i think i read on the steam forums that the graphics are the same from the first game. bummer if its true.. I would suggest finishing the first one, but i guess it depends where you stopped. If you found out the true meaning behind "would you kindly" then i think your set to go for the second game.

@LaVaughn what if i heard of Adidas but never actually seen it... well i mean i never played God of War, so would enjoy the game still? is their enough fun in even tho it jocked everything from another game! even if the game kinda sucks i will probably keep playing just because you can play though the divine comedy, something that intrigued me since i was a kid.

Is anyone excited for bioshock 2? I'm on PC, so I'm sort of looking forward to the graphics, I never finished the first one though, so maybe I should do that before I get into the storyline of the second...

I'm loving ME2, playing it right now.

The wait is over an I'm fairly underwhelmed by Dante's Inferno so far. They REALLY ripped God of War off BIG TIME, but the game isn't very exciting. God of War is BADASS... this is not even close. This game is like when you go into Payless and see those shoes that kinda look like Adidas form a distance, but when you get closer they have 4 stripes and feel cheap.

@Conor, hha that is funny if you were going for paragon what you get like +10 renegade? u know i'm still not sure what those mean but when i do something good i get +paragon. i think it get the jist ov it.

@Casey, agreed but with quicksaves during the dialogues just in case you don't like one of the responses.

Social life would be so much simpler if it were like ME.....just like a few solid options of dialogue with plenty of time to mull over the choice of answers....another thing: I wonder if the Krogan Genophage in ME2 is bioware staff alluding to the problem of aids in Africa or something.
Comment by Conor on February 8, 2010 at 8:56pm
BioWare reportedly wants to have ME3 out by the end of 2011. Which is awful, because me wanty closure.

@ Motrin RE: william's e-beliefs.

I don't recall what I chose, but I know I went with the most negative sounding answer. This is made funnier by the fact that I was going full on Paragon. That sounded nerdier/more sexually aggressive than I intended. Sorry.
