I own God of War III. Loved the game to bits.
Not getting the game purely for trophies, I love getting them but I think getting a game for trophies, unless you're renting it, is a total waste of cash. I get games for enjoyment!
Thats pretty much what I do. Rent for trophies(test for fun ones), then buy the fun ones. I usually try for every style of game. And rate based on whats fun.
Secondly, I hear the game is ALRIGHT, but also very short, which is why I didn't pick it up at launch, because I felt the game length didn't justify the pricetag. HOWEVER, 20euro for the Death Edition of the game, new, is pretty good value.
Ok when I first played dantes inferno, it was fun. I had fun with it. As I played it? Not so much. Once you beat the learning curve the games no longer enjoyable. Once you unlock and fully upgrade your cross move, your unstoppable and you'll be spamming circle for the rest of the game.
I found it as lengthy as any singleplayer action game these days. I mean i didn't buy god of war 3 because I knew it didn't offer enough in terms of length. Granted it's probably the only game I'd go out of my way to rent day one and I enjoyed all 10 hours of it, but its just not a buy for me and neithers dantes inferno.
That said, it's not the length thats the issue with dante, it just doesn't do anything new no matter how deep you go. It's all dark and gloomy and boring. Where's the heaven levels? I thought it would of been sweet to rip through those golden gates and slaughtering the servants of god aswell as the slaves of hell(im not religious don't judge me). I don't know I just expected more variety.
To summarize, would you value the game at 20 bucks? Is it worth it? Overall, including, gameplay, trophies and whatnot. Fair price for it?
I personally don't buy games for the added bits. Just cause you get all this stuff with the game doesn't mean now its worth the price. Even if the added stuff exceeds the price you'll be paying for special edition since I'm really only interested in playing the game. Someone says hey look buy this crap game with all this stuff included for 20 bucks, and I'll just tell em I'll keep the 20 and use it to discount a game thats better.
