Nice piece of action

Infernal is a nice action game and you won't feel disappointed if you decide to spend few evenings with it. It has some minor flaws but in the end you'll be having much fun playing this one. The story isn't maybe very good but game itself is quite diverse - plain shooting, using special powers, few special levels. My score 75/100

Hell hath no Fury as an Angel Scorned.

Your character was an Angel who is no longer working for Heaven and no longer has powers. The game starts with him being attacked by agents of Heaven and being involved in a huge gun fight. He escapes and agrees to join an agency of Hell and is given Infernal abilities. It's a story that might seem like nonsense but it gives a good excuse for the powers he is given throughout the game. The powers are what make this game worth playing along with the good graphics. The dialogue is cheesy and embarrassingly bad at times with your character actually called Dark Eaville but if you can get past that then the gameplay is good.

The difficulty level is mostly low which won't suit everyone with your character being nearly invincible. The boss battles are more difficult as these have to be completed a certain way but most of the time you can just plough through enemies. Your health is restored by draining life force from enemies so there's always more health available. This isn't a realistic shooter game where one bullet could be fatal but I found it fun to be this powerful.

The biggest problem I had was with teleportation. This was because It wasn't explained as well as it could have been. You don't actually teleport permanently but appear in an area for a few seconds to allow you to turn off security cameras etc. I figured this out through trial and error but it took a frustrating while to get the hang of it. If you can get past the ridiculous story and cringe worthy dialogue there's a good game here deserving of a chance. The first mission is too over the top but after that it settles into a fun game.
