Director for Dante's Inferno thinks it's the greatest compliment to be called a God of War rip off?


Jonathan Knight is the writer, producer and director for EA's Dante's Inferno, (the guy's a genius) and in this month's Playstation: The Official Magazine he paused from his busy and "hellish" schedule to field a few questions. In the interview, they discussed a variety of different topics, however the interviewer for PTOM had to get one question off his chest from the onset:

PTOM: "We don't mean to insinuate anything, but do you really not mind when people say your game is a lot like God of War?" To which Jonathan responded:

"We never get sick of hearing it because it's the greatest compliment we can be paid. 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," he said.

Jonathan also spoke about the game's other influences, and the differences that make their game unique, he continues:

"We have other influences too, but I think what's different about our game is it's based on an incredible influential work of literature. Out of that flow really fresh gameplay ideas such as the Holy Cross weapon, the ability to absolve or punish the damned, and riding the giant demons. Hopefully, there's plenty of room for lots of other great games in the genre~we just want to be one of them."

There you have it, the guy don't mind his game being a God of War ripoff at all. And you can say it as much as you want, it's okay, actually it's a compliment. No really, Dante's Inferno is shaping up to be something very unique in terms of storyline, and as Jonathan said literature. When last did you play a full game in the dreadful abyss that's hell? I thought so.

  1. Your title completely misconstrues what the developer is saying. He doesn't think it's the greatest compliment to be called a God of War "rip-off", he think it's a a great compliment for someone to say that Dante's Inferno is like God of War, and that's because God of War is such an awesome, critically acclaimed game.

  2. I think the author was having a bit of fun with this one,nonetheless it's a great read.

    Seems to me Mr. Knight knows his game is much like God of War, and clearly admits to being influence by Kratos.....however he does not think it's cool to be called a ripoff, at least nothing I see in this interview states that.

  5. I think you're taking his comments out of context. He never once said he considered his game a rip-off. He said it was a compliment to be compared to such a fantastic game.

  6. I never said he thinks it's a ripoff, if you look at the title you'll see a question mark at the end of it.

    The PTOM interviewer politely asked what does he (Jonathan) think about people saying his game is a lot like God of War, to which he answered in so many words it's great. I agree he never said it's a ripoff, but again, I never stated it was. I simply asked a question.
