Game Observer writes: "Dante's Inferno, by EA's Visceral Games, is the most recent attempt to profit from one of history's greatest epics about rising from the depths of depravity. I say "attempt" because that's all it is. It's shiny in all the right places but after playing through once it felt like someone put Devil May Cry and Saw IV into a smoothie maker, and then viewed the amalgamation through Tim Burton's eyes during one of his worst nightmares. (And I use Devil May Cry in reference only because of gameplay and not for name use! DMC is a take on DI, not the other way around!)"
