  • Summary: Every thousand years a very rare planetary alignment makes Earth invisible to the Boss of the Bosses. Secret agencies of Heaven's and Hell's fighting each other for human souls, stop obeying any rules at all during that time. And even though Hell's agency traditionally does not obey rules, the balance between good and evil becomes gravely endangered when their opponents from Heaven also stop observing the rules! Dark Eaville, is on a mission to stop Heaven's agency and bring back the delicate balance between good and evil. [Metropolis Software] Expand

  1. Infernal borrows a lot ideas from classic action adventures like "Deus Ex," but manages to stand on its own two feet. Awesome graphics, brisk action and realistic environments make Infernal well worth a try. [Apr 2007]
  2. The action is very well done, sometimes enthralling, but never progressing beyond the 'shoot him, find key, open door, shoot him...' formula makes the game just a tad too empty to proficiently prosper.
  3. Somehow it manages to be far more entertaining than you'd expect. [May 2007, p.72]
  4. Infernal embraces style over substance, resulting in a dull and repetitive shooting experience.
  5. 55
    Graphics aside Infernal is a pretty mediocre third-person shooter in a genre already boasting Resident Evil 4 and Gears of War: given this, and Gears' inevitable arrival on the PC, it's difficult to recommend Infernal.

    Infernal isn't entirely of the nauseatingly familiar variety. Its teleport system has potential that really should have been capitalized upon. It's got some nice visuals, flashy fire effects, lots of glowing outfits, and performs well.
  7. It’s a clean game, at least, texturally crisp and evocatively lit, but the feeling of playing an interactive 3D Mark demo is discouragingly strong. [Apr 2007, p.88]

    Lots of action, I really don't understand the low ratings here - in Germany, nearly all ratings are 80% plus!

    Very well made, I love the unique idea even though the gameplay does steal from other games a little, but that is inevitable as there are so many games in this genre. Expand

    Really enjoyable TPS, it does borrow a lot from previous game releases over the last few years but hey! it works and works quite well.
