Dante's gonna cut you

From the February 2, 2010 Harper's Weekly Review:
Electronic Arts prepared to unveil a video-game version of Dante Alighieri’s Inferno. In the game, Dante is not a poet but a knight who descends into Hell to save Beatrice’s soul from the Devil. “If you know the poem, the game has a lot to offer,” said executive producer Jonathan Knight. “If you just want to mash buttons and kill demons, that’s all it has to be for you.”
There's blood, there's nudity, there's murder. It's practically Grand Theft Auto for the poetry set.
