Gamer Limit Banner

This is the first thing from the mostly ridiculous Dante’s Inferno ad campaign that I’ve seen yet that makes me care about the game.  Why?  Bill Withers’ “Ain’t No Sunshine.”  Makes up for the fake protesters, the fake game, and encouraging game geeks to molest booth babes.

Almost.

It wasn’t the only cool game-centric commercial from Super Bowl XIV; there was also this ad for the new Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time movie:

Nothing will live up to the Doritos or E-Trade commercials, however…

Still, when you spend more money on one thirty-second commercial than the entire Gamer Limit staff will earn in their lifetimes – combined – you’d better do something incredible.  People might even buy Dante’s Inferno now when it drops on Tuesday.  That is, if EA can fight off a little title called Bioshock 2.

  1. Great commercial, I’ve been at least partially interested in this game since I first heard about it. I most likely won’t pick it up, but that commercial was pretty freaking epic, and I stopped talking for a moment to take in the moment, just to see if this is something that should be on my radar.

  2. I’m so angry I missed it! I was playing a game on my iPhone, and wasn’t looking. Thanks for posting this Nick!

  3. The girl in the Dante’s Inferno commercial wears A LOT less clothing in the actual game.

  4. Actually she is clothed more than she is nude in the game Shawn :P

    The Dante’s Inferno commercial for the Super Bowl actually said “Hell awaits” at the end since they couldn’t use “Go to hell”

    I’ll have a review up for it by Tuesday. It is definitely worth at least a rent imo.

    Yeah, that’s true. My bad… the original was banned. This is the one I could find on YouTube. So there ya go.

  6. I really hope that the Prince of Persia movie plays out like how most people play the game. The Prince fails miserably and has to rewind. Fails again and rewinds. Succeeds and fails at a new point and rewinds too far and has to start at the room’s entrance again. That’s probably why it took so long to film.

  7. I saw it. Pretty freakin’ awesome in my book.

      hey there and thank you for your info e2€“ I have certainly pkiecd up something new from right here. I did however expertise some technical issues using this site, since I experienced to reload the website a lot of times previous to I could get it to load properly. I had been wondering if your web host is OK? Not that I am complaining, but slow loading instances times will often affect your placement in google and can damage your quality score if ads and marketing with Adwords. Anyway I am adding this RSS to my e-mail and can look out for a lot more of your respective interesting content. Make sure you update this again soon..

  8. I freakin’ hate this game already.

    Stupidly awful ad campaign, too much reliance on “controversy” and it has raped, soiled on and murdered a classic piece of literature. The demo was horrid IMO.

    “Go to hell” indeed…

  9. Upon watching this trailer I thought it was rather familiar, too familiar for a debut trailer. Well, I googled around and found the trailer it reminded me of. Seems like the Dante’s Inferno trailer is a structural plagiarism of the Lost Odyssey trailer that featured “White Rabbit” by Jefferson Airplane.
