Dante's Inferno is a third-person action adventure game developed by Visceral Games and published by Electronic Arts in the first quarter of 2010 for Playstation 3, Xbox 360, and Playstation Portable. It is based on Dante Aligheri’s epic poem, ‘Divine Comedy’, and in fact involves playing as Dante, a veteran of the Crusades. The player must dig into the pits of Hell in his quest to save his beloved Beatrice from Lucifer’s grasp. In many ways, Dante’s Inferno is kind of like a third-person version of the popular top-down game Diablo. Whereas users in Diablo controlled his/her character from above, Dante’s Inferno allows for a more realistic experience by following the character of Dante from behind. In fact, users describe Dante’s Inferno as a cross between God of War and Diablo. Dante’s Inferno is played via a GamePad.
