Dante’s Inferno producer says comparisons to God of War are a compliment

Thursday, 1st October 2009 15:17 GMT By Stephany Nunneley


The writer, producer, and director for Dante’s Inferno, Jonathan Knight, has told PlayStation: The Official Magazine that it’s a compliment for the game to be compared to God of War.

“We never get sick of hearing it because it’s the greatest compliment we can be paid,” he told the mag. “We hope to be worthy of that. Those guys are at the top of their game and there’s no question God of War III is going to be spectacular. I’ll be the first in Line to get it.

“I hope those comparisons are being made because of our combat system and is just as responsive; the control over the character is very immediate, it’s very fast-paced, you can branch out of moves very easily, you feel very powerful and overall is a very fun game to play.”

    Well… I’m surmising the comparisons are being made because they appear to be almost exactly the same. :-D

    Not that that’s necessarily a bad thing. Imitation is the something something something, etc.

    First in Line? Is Line a place? Is that where he’s from, Line? Maybe he’s just Line’s biggest Kratos fan. Do they run cosplay contests in Line?

    lol he knows very well the comment are made in a negative way , he’s just playing ostrich in some PR bit . Wich anyone in their right mind would do .

    I dont mind the copy . I just wish they wouldnt have felt the need to make the hero like a barbarian with chain mails and made the book more than an excuse for sin themed levels …

    Someday devs will understand they dont have to make the hero entirely effiminate OR like a musclor clone . there can be a middle . especially when in Dante’s inferno and the whole Divine comedy trilogy (how convenient for them that the original work is a trilogy eh ?) Dante is just a regular looking guy .

    it’s a shame really , Dante is both a war combattant and a scholar and poet . Even if you give him stylish armors and looks , he doesnt need to look like Conan of Cimmeria …
