As some of you may know, I despise Dante's Inferno for ripping-off God of War. (made a rant about it)
Read the highlighted part. Thats what Dante's Inferno should have. I was looking forward to the game until I played the demo and realized it was a watered down, rip-off with next to no originality.
In a recent interview with Eurogamer, Joe Madureira from Vigil games (Darksiders devs) said this :
Q : Lots has been made of how Darksiders borrows ideas, particularly from God of War and Zelda - and to good effect. But how much influence did those games actually have?
A : I think it's impossible not to be influenced by something that you've enjoyed, or that's made an impact on you or the genre. It's funny, because most of the time we would fire up God of War it would be to make sure we WEREN'T doing something that was too close. Trying to make sure that we were differentiating ourselves enough. If anything we took pains to move away from these games.
Btw, Darksiders looks like a brilliant game and its getting rave reviews.(there is no hype for it though) PS3 version is at 87 in Metacritic and 360 version is at 86 in Metacritic. However 360 version is supposed to have more tearing than the PS3 version (very rarely a multiplat is better on PS3, not 100% sure if this is true or not, based on another forum post)
