Dante's Inferno - Summary

An abducted soul, a lifetime of sins, a journey to the depths of despair. Dante’s Inferno™ is a third-person action adventure adaptation of the medieval epic poem The Divine Comedy by Dante Alighieri. The dark fiction gave birth to the Tuscan Italian dialect and is widely considered to have defined the western world’s contemporary conception of hell and purgatory. The poem tells the tale of Dante who journeys through the twisted, menacing nine circles of hell in pursuit of his beloved Beatrice.

Written in the 14th Century, The Divine Comedy was published and read aloud in Italian (unlike the Bible), thereby making the poem accessible to the mass public. The poem delivers a striking and allegorical vision of the Christian afterlife and the punishments of hell. In part one, known as Dante’s Inferno, Dante traverses all nine circles of hell; limbo, lust, gluttony, greed, wrath, heresy, violence, fraud and treachery.

God of War III is easily the best hack n' slash this generation and of all time. Castlevania: LoS is amazing, definitely the best game in the genre outside of God of War. Dante's Inferno is mediocre but even so it's still tied for 3rd best this gen with Bayonetta & Heavenly Sword. Bayonetta has good gameplay but sucks at everything else, Heavenly Sword has good visuals & story but lacks good gameplay and Dante's Inferno is the most balanced with ok graphics, gameplay and story. I'd still like to see a sequel to Dante's Inferno only because this is such a niche genre and there isn't enough games to fill the void between God of War games.

Id love a sequel, but I dont think people would like the other parts of the divine comedy as much as hell
