Added DiffLines:

* ItsShortSoItSucks: Without skipping cutscenes and with finding every damned soul, the base game can be easily beaten in 5-6 hours.

* ThatOneAchievement: ''It's in the Trial'' from Trials of St. Lucia DLC. To earn this achievement/trophy, the player must complete 25 single player and 15 two player EA trials. However, this is the hardest achievement/trophy to earn in the game because of how unrelentingly HarderThanHard the online trials can be. Not helped in the multiplayer aspect, where if one player dies or fails the trial then the game is over for both players.

Not to mention that due to the game being over a half-decade old, new players will have virtually no chance whatsoever to get this achievement, as practically nobody plays multiplayer trials anymore.

* DisappointingLastLevel: Many reviewers have praised the game's first several levels, but have stated that the later levels fall into this. That is, Malbolge is just a series of trials -- probably because it's pretty hard to make fraud interesting -- and Cocytus is nothing but the FinalBattle.

* AuthorsSavingThrow: While many have criticized the game for it's UnfortunateImplications for giving Beatrice massive {{chickification}} by making her a DamselInDistress over the more competent hero she was in the source material, ''The Trials of St. Lucia'' sort of rectifies this by introducing a badass ActionGirl Angel named St. Lucia, who fights just as well as Dante by his side in combat challenges.

* EvilIsCool: [[ZigZaggedTrope Zig-zagged]] in regards to Lucifer. TheDevilIsALoser is very much in effect in the original ''Literature/TheDivineComedy'' in which he is depicted stuck in the Icy center of Hell powerless to do anything about his torment. The Lucifer of this game on the other had is given some AdaptationalBadass and cleverness and also gives him a case of being a VillainHasAPoint, namely given that HumansAreBastards is in full effect, but even then it is also juxtaposed with him being StupidEvil.

** At (almost) the top of the other side of the upgrade path, you get the passive ability to regain mana... By killing things. That's right, the game lets you go invincible, regain health while doing so, then regain mana by killing the enemies you can't be touched by.
** The fully charged blast of the cross comes to mind. It is very powerful, has a long range and area of effect, breaks all defenses and knocks the enemy over. The only downside is of course a charge-time, which isn't very long. Furthermore, with upgrades, you can make the cross attack even stronger, and regain health from every enemy that dies from a cross attack. Single enemies (even some bosses) can just be spammed to death by it and even groups can be reduced to dust pretty quickly if you let them hug together on a tight area.
* GeniusBonus: In addition to being an adaptation of the "The Inferno" the game also incorporates some details about Dante Alighieri that will be interesting for anyone who is knowledgeable about the Florentine poet. Two notable tidbits are those about Bella when [[spoiler: Dante finds her in the Wood of the Suicides]] saying that she died of the fever (which is how the real-life Bella Alighieri (née Abati) died) and that the character Francesco shares his name with Alighieri's real-life half brother.
** On that note, the game's version of Dante grew up believing that his mother died of the fever [[spoiler: when in actuality, [[DrivenToSuicide her husband's abuse pushed her to hang herself]]. Even through the mid 20th century, it wasn't unusual for relatives/loved ones of suicide victims to cover up the suicide so the dead could receive a burial in hallowed ground and thus have a chance at salvation]].

*** In Manga/RurouniKenshin, Makoto Shishio, voiced by Creator/SteveBlum in the American English dub by Creator/MediaBlasters, occasionally compares himself to being a demon (granted he [[NecessarilyEvil believes that he is right]]) and expects to go to Hell when he dies and, [[spoiler: following his death via internal combustion, is shown along with Yumi and Houji in the underworld with the drawing up plans with them to achieve taking it over]].

* LoveItOrHateIt: You'll either think that ''Dante's Inferno'' is a fun, entertaining game that raises interest in a classic poem with amazing graphics and epic fight scenes or absolutely despise how it takes too many elements from ''God of War''.

* AdaptationDisplacement: The game is very loosely based upon the original poem and doesn't meet all of its events.

* RonTheDeathEater: The Historical [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Alighiero_di_Bellincione Alighiero di Bellincione]] gets this treatment from some people who are too lazy to do any research on the real person and foolishly assume the fictional Alighiero in the game is an accurate representation when [[{{Expy}} he isn't him]].

* DudeNotFunny: The Achievement/Trophy called "Bad Nanny." To unlock this, it requires the player to slaughter at least 20 or so [[WouldHurtAChild unbaptized babies]] in Hell. [[EveryoneHasStandards Even non-Christian people]] found this joke to be in poor taste.

* UnfortunateImplications:
** As stated above, not too many fans of the original work appreciated the decision to turn Beatrice from one of the most interesting, epic female heroes into a DamselInDistress that needs saving. Her whole character is essentially being a beautiful woman that Dante has to recue and not much else, which naturally angers a few people.
** When Lucifer is first encountered in the game, his spirit form just happens to be a bald, black shadowy figure coming on to Beatrice's white astral projection while she tries pushing him away and calling him a dark monster. This may raise a few eyebrows for some gamers.
