Dante's Inferno - Subtitles & Excitement


Is anyone else excited about Dante's Inferno, the video game coming to the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 in February? The demo is available on the PlayStation Network and Xbox Live right now. I played it a few days ago and actually really enjoyed it. There's a lot of hacking and slashing - like Devil May Cry or God of War - but it's done in a fun way and it's easy to get lost in the game.

One thing I noticed about the game, which I hope they rectify when it actually comes out, was an issue with the subtitles. They seemed slightly behind the actual dialogue - just enough to be annoying. It seemed as though the dialogue was too quick for the subtitles to keep up. Of course it's just a demo and I'm sure that will be fixed, but it's the first time I've noticed something like that in a video game. I've seen a few DVDs like that and of course closed captioning on TV is often behind or ahead.

Here's hoping Dante's Inferno is as cool as the demo!
