Kotaku: Dante's Inferno Review

Dante's Inferno the video game is a metaphysical journey though and an animated illumination of medieval hell. It deals with morality and existentialism as aptly as it delivers an engrossing experience.

It is not without its issues, it most certainly won't be for everyone, but it does something that very few video games do: It opens the door for moral introspection.

The story is too old to be commented.

Is that the part where you shoot cross beams at the undead or where you first kill the grim reaper after he begs for his life.

Moral introspection requires unilateral choice and change to be viable to this conversation, and simplistically allowing certain creatures to be "freed" (and go where, back to hell? his actions doesn't make them go to heaven, you know) and not given the option for others can hardly be called moral, but "robotic". Action due to introspection results in changing your methods, and since he basically never is given the choice to use other methods on bosses besides tearing them asunder, I fail to see the character's moral growth due to introspection.
