  1. The story is silly and inconsequential, the action has the potential to be amazing, but cobbling together game concepts from the most popular titles on the market and releasing it with an amazing lack of polish just doesn't cut it in this day and age.
  2. You'll have to be bad to be good but Infernal is sometimes so bad it's difficult to see what good can come of it.
  3. The majority of your time with Infernal (may it be short, for your sake) is spent gunning down goons in the employ of Heaven with one small handful of weapons. [June 2007, p.116]

    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]

The graphics are cool, the story is never-seen-before, and the gameplay is nice (especially your demonic powers). It's rather fun. Full Review »

    If you are considering picking up this game because you are craving some good 3rd person action with a gritty backdrop and compelling theme,If you are considering picking up this game because you are craving some good 3rd person action with a gritty backdrop and compelling theme, Skip this title and play Dark Sector or Velvet Assassin or better yet Alpha Protocol instead. This game on it's face looks polished, but is a complete letdown where gameplay is concerned, and the plot is so thin (there is very little setup and absolutely no apparent justification for your aligning yourself with the very organization you'd previously sought to destroy except some weak pretense that you'll need to "to survive." In the tutorial levels the lopsidedness really shines through, in places you'll die from falling less than a story (falling a similar distance in other games of this type merely hurt the player) while on the other hand without armor or explanation you can take truly ridiculous amounts of damage from gunfire on the "Medium" difficulty -- not to mention you gain health from looting corpses, essentially turning everyone you shoot into a health potion. Couple this with frustrating save convention -- you'll constantly find yourself doing GIANT stretches of minimally entertaining content when you accidentally happen upon something that can actually kill you (hint: it's a terrain feature or a boss battle) because the autosave points are insanely far apart and it won't let you save at will. Picture a pearl-polished shot glass, containing an ice cold gulp of diarrhea. That's Infernal. Purchase at your peril. Full Review »
