Well on the bright side that's the last God of War rip off for a while.

He did sound like he was wheezing out a few of the lines, need a bigger oxygen tank Yahtzee ?

Hairy bum xD

He teared this one apart

What's whit the voice he made when asking himself and answering his own questions?

something... i say ... you ask ... i say

awww no big blue demon willy joke?

Maybe I would wait for God of War III if I wasn't already pretty bored of the Devil May Cry formula.

Developers are cutting mighty close to the quick here in terms of, "its time to stop milking that cash cow and do something original again." Ah, who I am kidding? Big game developers avoid doing that like it'll give them leprosy.

Regarding the humor of the review: a tad wank heavy, but what can I say? At this point, it seems Wednesdays shoddy incomplete works without a Yahtzee review, and this one was certainly up to snuff. A divine comedy about a God of War knockoff of the divine comedy.

Another in the long cavalcade of God of War knockoffs. God of War did it first and better so please stop making them and maybe focus on making a good game.

Dammit, now all I can think of is hairy bums. D:

Great review, loved the video, but no so much the new, slightly ill voice. But...I guess that would be nitpicking.

Dante's Inferno was shit. I borrowed it from my friend and seriously. If you have ever played a God of War game, stay the FUCK away from Dante's Inferno! On the other hand, if you have never played a God of War game, stay the fuck away from Dante's Inferno and wait for God of War III!

Someone needs a more productive Sunday afternoon schedule :)

But to answer the question Yahtzee posed to Alighieri which is quite unfair seeing as he can't answer because he has been dead for about 7 centuries.

"What does being tossed around by winds have to do with Lust."

Basically Lust is portrayed as being a storm because Passion can be described as a storm of emotions. So being swept in never ending gusts of hurricane force seems pretty good punishment for those that gave way for the Storms of Passion.

Not that I believe any of this but still would be nice to have a tour in hell, what else are you going to do all day in heaven except laugh at the poor suckers below:).

"It beats the fuck out of me!"

fucking lol'd

Nice vid, different voice though o_O

yeeeeaaah, was he talking quieter then usual? or has someone taken over his body?

I knew he would hate it lol. A lot of wank jokes though.

I'm a little tired of the term God of War Clone. God of War took its style of hack and slash gameplay directly from Devil May Cry, which evolved it from previous games.

Dante's Inferno takes it's gameplay and themes more from Devil May Cry than it does God of War or the Divine Comendy.

Although I personally really enjoyed the game, I would have been very disappointed if Yahtzee hadn't torn it apart like he did.

One of the better ZPs in some time as well! That right hand joke was classic.

Even if this wasn't a soulles version of GoW, the main character would still look like shit.

The design of a main character weighs heavily for me.

Beats the fuck out of me. HA! that was funny.

I actually enjoyed the game...sure it had a lot of the problems you mentioned, but I still enjoyed beating things up God of War style, only this time in catholic Hades and without your trip home.

The reason I enjoyed it was the combat, because while it was copy pasted from God of War, it at least had the decency to no change anything that God of War had done, except it turned the QTE into more of a remember what button this is, and made the buttons really hard to see on my TV to the point that I had to lean into the screen and memorize how to kill the big demon guys.

Though as I'm sure people have said, your voice sounded off in the video, spending too much time awake playing all these new games that developers have been releasing like crazy?

Also, one thing I wonder is what system to you play a lot of your games on? Since Dante came out on both PS3 and X360, did you play it on the PS3 to pretend it was the Catholic Hades expansion pack, or did you not want to think you were playing God of War and play it on the X360? So which system do you use more and which system do you prefer to use?

Edit:Oh! The winds of lust have to do with them not being able to get any rest and being tossed around by the strong winds because of the way they lived their life moving so...something like that...and did you SEE the woman that made babies come out of her nipples or was that just me?!

Well, even though I personally liked the game, we all knew that Yahtzee was going to tear the game apart for being a GoW clone. I give Yahtzee a pass on bringing up that old, overused point because he does it in a way that doesn't make him a complete tosser.

Although, as he has made perfectly clear, he is a wanker.

Always enjoy the show, this one was special. I laughed multiple time and as has been quoted "it beats the hell out of me" is sheer genius. Well done, yet another line that will be used and get odd looks.

Friggin hilarious as usual.

Ha ha ha!

Okay, I like how he represented moral choices with Donut vs Lettuce.

this was the best work you have done in a while. Top work!

Looking forward to God of War III, and I think I'll give this one a pass.

Another funny review,good job! The wank joke was freaking epic,I laughed my ass off.

One of my favorite reviews so far,definitely in the top 3

I don't own a PS3 yet,but if I did I would definitely go play it,because of the story more than the similarities with God of War series,I couldn't care less.

Hm. I half expected it to be a much harsher review, given as how money spent hyping things up is indirectly proportional to the amount of money spent on ensuring quality. That said, this review was still sufficient to make me not want to buy the game.

How many will be banned/suspended at the top of this one, I wonder?

I can't recall a single positive thing he said about it, it was about as negative as they get.

Heheh, nice review XD

I do wonder why this year started with so many GOW/DMC ripoffs o_o
It seems to be the season for hack n slashers...

Well, he did mention that the earlier levels were very creative, but yeah, that's about it.

Lol hairy bum

Yes, christianity does have some problems with temptation.
When i first saw Dante, i thought it was a cool section of torn off skin. Sadly i found out it was a glorified blanket.

Great: Quick time events. Ugh

Yes, i might get this for 5 quid in a few years in a bargain bin, but for now, sod it.

I do wonder how the holy and unholy thing works. Are they equal benefits? If so, what's the point.
Nah, not at all interested in this game.

To start off with, the Unholy gives you scythe combos and Holy gives you better magic attacks and cross moves, but...well, towards the end it becomes almost the same, so...

Allow me to take this moment to combine my two favorite internet personality trademarks:

Very funny review. The wanking off bits were especially funny.

Big thumbs up on the first 30 seconds. Throw that one at the theologians.

i could care less about the eternal damnation; i would definitely go donut.

My favorite part was his parallel to Mario.

"Some italian dude saving a princess". Oh man, i would've never made that correlation. XD

one of the best in a long time. not one bad metaphor and the thing was stuffed with them. genius.
