Played on Xbox 360. Review by Constance.
In Dante's Inferno you play as Dante (though in the dlc you can play as St.Lucia in multiplayer) this game came out last year but i just got to play it. took me a total of 9 hours to get thru all 9 levels of hell trying to save Dante's love Beatrice.
Virgil, a lost poet, helps you through each level, giving you guidance. 

In the beginning Dante (you) are fighting off prisoners and one is very sneaky and comes to stab you in the back. as you fall the Grim Reaper comes to damn your soul, but being a very stubborn asshole you fight him. Once you win you gain Death's Scythe. You go home afterward to find your father and love murdered. Beatrice bargined her soul for your faithfulness, and when you are unfaithful, lucifer takes beatrices soul to hell. This is where you start your descent into the 9 levels of hell to save Beatrice and redeem yourself.

In each level you fight off various damned and have the option to either absolve or punish them with various combos.
the more you punish the better you can level up your unholy. Unholy levels make your scythe more and more badass. it also helps with some of the unholy magicks you possess later in the game. However if you absolve a ton of damned souls, youll level up your holy. Holy levels help your Cross of Beatrice. (a cross she gave you before you left for the Crusade) the more holy you become the more you can level up other certain magicks i.e Holy Armor.

Dante Wielding his Cross
Playing in Limbo was probably the hardest for me, which is exactly what EA wanted. You have to fend off Unbaptized babies. and they walk, talk, look, and act like normal babies..
well you know if babies had scythes for arms. I thought to myself, am i really killing babies. yep, i am. its definitely not for the faint of heart. 
The levels all have there bosses, various main characters or demons you have to fight. King Minos, judge of the damned. Cleopatra, Queen of Lust. Your Father...etc You may die once or twice or just get flat out pissed off but all in all the boss battles are luke warm. 

The big Boss is obviously Lucifer who is, legit, all talk no bark. Once you get the rhythm of his moves, youve got him. easy peesy. 

Dante's Love Beatrice
I loved this game because i like the story. The Divine Comedy has always been an interest of mine and when I heard about the game i was giddy. Played the demo and wanted it even more. Once i actually bought the game and played it, it only took me 9 hours to beat it. It disappointed me because I'm so used to rpg that take 60+ hours to beat or that you can just play and play and play til your ready to puke from the game. The ending left a blah taste in my mouth and I want more. 

So dear creators at EA please give me a Dante two.
