Chelsea writes on Negative gamer:
"To start, as I have briefly mentioned before, it is pointless to compare Dante's Inferno to the God of War franchise. While GoW was indeed based on Greek mythology, it was not derived from any single piece of literature, but rather a time period and the pagan religion that accompanied it. Kratos is a completely fictional character, with a (though somewhat recycled) new plot. It was in truth merely inspired, and not solely based upon, the religion and myths of Grecian society."
