Perhaps the first video game to be inspired by a poem, Dante's Inferno takes many of its ideas and partial plot from Dante Alighieri's first canticle of his Devine Comedy, even including quotes throughout the game. (Whoever said games can't teach literature and culture?)
With a gameplay often compared to those in the God of War series, Dante's Inferno is a third-person action adventure, with some platforming and puzzle-solving. Following the end of the Third Crusade, Dante - a crusader general - is assassinated and faced by Death. Rather than accepting his fate, Dante destroys Death - taking his scythe as a weapon - and returns home in Florence to find his wife Beatrice not only killed, but being dragged to hell by Lucifer. Dante jumps into the rings of hell, with Virgil as his guide, determined to find his wife and rescue her from torment.
Despite protests to ban the game back in June of 2009 on accusations of Dante's Inferno being sacrilegious, the game received fairly positive reviews, with an average score of 73%. It was praised for its graphics, art style and fun level design, though has been criticized as being a copy of the God of War games, though lacking in its battle finesse. A comic book and animated film have been inspired by the game.

A similar platinum to the God of War games, though much easier. The majority of the trophies can be obtained during your first playthrough - provided you find all the collectibles - and a partial second playthrough to fill both your Holy and Unholy powers to the max. Afterwards, it's just a challenge in the arena, and you're done.
Expect between 15-20 hours for the Platinum.
There are no trophies for completing the game on any difficulties, so if you're in a rush, you can set your game on its easiest mode - Classic. There are collectibles to be found: 3 Beatrice Stones, 30 pieces of silver, Holy Relics, Unholy Relics, and 27 Shades to either be punished or absolved. It's recommended you follow one of the Walkthroughs under our Links tab, or Video Walkthroughs to find all these collectibles during your first playthrough. If you miss one, you'll have to restart from the beginning. Also, a few of the shades MUST be absolved for their corresponding trophy, so it's recommended you begin with focusing on maxing out the Holy path first - only absolving - so that you don't make any errors.
You'll probably max out your Holy path a little over three-quarters through the game. Once you've reached Level 7, start working on the Unholy path. After you complete the game, you can start a new game with all your statistics. Remember, you WON'T have your collectibles - so make sure you get them all in a single playthrough.
Once all those trophies are taken care of, the only one left should be Gates Of Hell, which is defeating waves of enemies in an arena. This is similar to the Challenge of the Gods in the God of War series - only ten times easier!
