OXCGN Reviews: "Dante's Inferno is an arcade-style action game that works only because it doesn't take itself too seriously. I mean, one of the early enemy types is the unbaptised baby…
The game is loosely based off the first cantica of Dante Alighieri's epic poem The Divine Comedy, where the poet is escorted by the Roman poet Virgil through the nine circles of Hell.
The poem is an allegorical journey through the true nature of sin, populated by many historical figures and Alighieri's contemporaries.
As far as adapting a 689-year-old manuscript into a video game, Visceral Games did a great job while taking tremendous liberties."
