Dante's Inferno

Review: Dante’s Inferno Commits Sin

Gloomy new hack-and-slash action game Dante’s Inferno meticulously reinterprets its influential source material: With perfect reverence, it replicates every nuance, every glorious note, from Sony’s God of War.

Oh, and there’s also some plot stuff in there based on some poem by a dead Italian guy.

The story line of Electronic Arts’ latest PlayStation 3 (reviewed) and Xbox 360 game comes from Dante Alighieri’s The Divine Comedy. At first blush, it might seem silly to create an action game around a 14th-century epic poem.
