Pre-E3 09: Dante's Inferno teaser is a vocal sin


That might be a bit of an exaggeration. There's been some pretty horrendous VO work in the past (I'm looking at you, Capcom). But if they gave awards for worst vocal performance in a videogame, Dante's Inferno is currently on my shortlist for 2009 after this teaser. And it's just a taste of what is apparently a larger trailer -- called "Lust and Heresy" -- that will be coming down the pipe on the first of June.

It does look very pretty, though. I'm interested to see gameplay. I am determined to give the game an even shake, even if I think that the way they've twisted the original work is a crime against humanity. It will be difficult to keep my inner literary nerd in check but I'm willing to forgive a lot if a game is fun.

But, man, that voice work is horrendous. Hit the jump to see what I mean.
