     To navigate much easier through this guide, I added the search system, which
    works just by following these simple steps:
    
    - Highlight the "Section Code" of the section which you wish to go and copy it
      (CTRL+C).
    
    - Press CTRL+F to bring up the search sub-menu.
    
    - Paste (CTRL+V) the "Section Code" and press ENTER twice to be where you
      wanted to be. Just like magic!
    
     My Section Codes were made as precise as possible, and I also prefer this
    method instead of having you scroll 30 min through this huge guide looking for
    the section you want to go.

     Hello GameFAQers, welcome to my Dante's Inferno FAQ/Walkthrough for the
    PlayStation Portable (PSP). I wasn't that happy about the game... at first. I
    played the PS3 demo in his house and thought that it's just a copy of God of
    War, and a bit of Devil May Cry 3 (you have control of Dante, while there's
    another important character named Virgil, although there's a Dante and Vergil
    in Dante Alighieri's Poems from 1300 a.C.).
    
     I got it for the PSP (duh!), and I played it a lot and grew very fond to the
    story and the reasons why he goes to Hell. Well, keep on reading.
    
     Well, I hope you like both the FAQ and the game but before starting, there are
    some things I want to address, so please read the following paragraphs:
    
    - I'm writing this for free and because I'm falling in love with this game. If
    you are looking for tons of eloquent ways for me to say "move here and start a
    battle", you are going to be so disappointed. This guide is way, way too big to
    begin with, and lofty language does not help.
    
    - If you take a quick scan thru my guide, you won't find the explanations for
    battle basics, main menu, saving-loading, etc. Why, you ask? Well, because the
    game manual and in-game tutorials do a perfect job explaining the battle
    system.
    
    - The usage of abbreviations. When you're in my place or any who writes for
    GameFAQ's or any other page, writing a guide for any game of such proportions,
    people complain about using too many abbreviations. You have no idea how
    helpful abbreviations are. It also looks better in every aspect you think.
    
    - I'm writing this in my first playthrough, so I may be missing stuff. If you
    see that my guide is lacking content, please let me know through an email or
    visit my site and contact me there through the forums or PM me.
    
    - The spoilers are great issues in making guides. I am a player of the game,
    just like you are. The first time I played through this game was completely
    by myself. I didn't read any spoilers, therefore nothing was spoiled for me.
    All the story's ups and downs that were supposed to surprise me had such
    effect. And I really think it's not fair spoiling such story elements to you.
    
     With all this said, let's start with the guide! Enjoy  this guide and remember
    that it is a spoiler-free, so you don't  have to worry about  important info of
    the game being spoiled.

     Any critics, suggestions, spelling mistakes, contributions are welcome, so
    please send them at the following e-mail:

     I always reply to all the mails I get, since feedback is the best reward of
    all. Also, if you want to request to host this FAQ in your site, please ask
    permission first, so I can always keep track of where my FAQ's are. The only
    site that is allowed right now to host this FAQ is:
    
    - www.gamefaqs.com
    
     I also have MSN and AIM, but please, if you add me, do NOT start bombing me
    with IM. If I have the time, I'll chat to you, since I'm always busy writing
    FAQ's and making some research for my job and school, but please keep it
    polite, 'k? Anyway, here they are:
    
    MSN: xander_may_cry@hotmail.com
    AIM: vinh3im
    
     Ask politely and I'll add you. I don't have YIM, so start mailing me to make
    one just so you can chat with me.
    
     Also, I created a Facebook page for you to check it out here:

     This was made because several people like to add me on Facebook and since I'm
    not accepting people I don't know, and I removed the people that added me
    (sorry for that), I created this page, so enjoy. Also, take a look to a page
    made from a friend of mine, Absolute Steve.

     This is a little experiment of mine and I just wanna see how it goes. Well, if
    you found this guide to be at least somewhat useful, think about donating some
    money. I mean, I'm a student who pays his own school, and it's gastronomy and
    it consumes all the money I get at home. I'm not asking for 10-20 bucks.
    Whatever your heart wants to give is fine, be it 1 buck, 50 cents.
    
     Whatever the amount you can donate, I'd truly, TRULY appreciate it and your
    help would be greatly appreciated. Well, you can only donate through PayPal at
    the moment, which the account is: vinheim@gmail.com
                                      -----------------
    
     Instead of buying the official guides which cost around 20 dls., better donate
    half or a quarter or whatever amount to yours truly.
    
     To those who support me, thanks.                  - Alexander Paul Kleinheider

     Not many basics in this section, due to I'm a really lazy ass and because you
    need to play the game, not only download it and play it. Read a little dude.

     Outside the city walls of Acre, Dante finds himself traveling in a dark
    forest. For him, the clear path has been lost, and only visions of slaughter
    and war can be seen clearly. The Bishop's promises were nothing but empty lies,
    words spoken without the authority of God. Lost in the madness, Dante's
    passions consume him as he gives in to the darkness. Now, at the crossroads of
    this world and the next, only Dante's love for his Beatrice keeps him moving
    forward. The darkness, however, is not done with Dante and has taken his love
    where no living man may go. Dante is now faced with the impossible task of
    reclaiming his love from the furthest reaches of Hell itself. With the help of
    a poet and the fire in his heart, Dante begins his descent.

       ~-~  DANTE ALIGHIERI  ~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~
    
     ~ Voice Actor: Graham McTavish
    
     The game's primary protagonist, a far cry from the actual figure, Dante is
    depicted as a Templar knight of the Third Crusade. Swearing a vow of faith to
    Beatrice, Dante broke it before slaughtering Muslim prisoners of war, seeing
    them as subhuman. After Francisco gave his life up to save him from the king's
    retribution, Dante is killed during the siege on Acre where he confronts Death
    and learns that he was not on a holy mission. Taking Death's Scythe as his own,
    enabling him to return to the land of the living, a disillusioned Dante left
    for Florence while he had sewn a red tapestry detailing the events of his sins
    into his chest. But finding his father and Beatrice dead, Dante purses the
    latter to Hell with the cross she gave him long ago where he faces his horrific
    past and manages to redeem himself before ending up on Purgatory where he rips
    the tapestry off of him and discards it as he begins a new journey.
    
       ~-~  BEATRICE Portinari  ~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~
    
     ~ Voice Actress: Vanessa Branch
    
     Dante's now deceased fiancé, she serves as Dante's primary motivation as he
    goes deeper into Hell to rescue her from being used by Lucifer as a way for him
    to escape from Hell. She, along with Dante's father and servants, were killed
    prior to Dante's return to Florence after being stabbed to death by the
    assassin. Furthermore, betting her soul on Dante's faithfulness to her,
    Beatrice is kidnapped by Lucifer who later tempts her into giving herself to
    him after revealing how her brother died. Though she despised Dante for his
    actions against her, she is restored to normal after seeing that he kept her
    cross before being spirited off into Heaven.
    
       ~-~  Publius Vergilius Maro (Virgil)  ~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~
    
     ~ Voice Actor: Bart McCarthy
    
     One of Rome's greatest poets, now long deceased, Virgil acts as a guide to
    Dante (similar to his role in the original poem), explaining each of the
    circles of Hell and their purposes. As such, all of his dialogue comes from the
    poem. He is depicted as a tall, bald man dressed in a toga and having thick
    veins sticking out of his head where a spiked crown rests on his forehead.
    
       ~-~  Charon  ~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~
    
     ~ Voice Actor: Bart McCarthy
    
     The ferryman of the dead who appears as an anthropomorphic boat with a giant
    ship for a body due to his services in Hell. Although he is physically
    incapable of directly attacking people due to his lack of any actual limbs save
    for the head, Charon is not above sending various demons out against those who
    he forbids from traveling aboard him. He is later killed after Dante uses a
    demonic beast to tear his head off. His severed head is later shown near the
    entrance to King Minos' palace, still repeating the inscription from the Gates
    of Hell.
    
       ~-~  Minos  ~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~
    
     ~ Voice Actor: Richard Moll
    
     The temperamental, cynical judge of the dead and guardian of Limbo, Minos
    appears as a half-serpent, half-human demigod with a large crown on his head, a
    necklace made of corpses, and a serpentine body from the waist down. Though
    blind, his enhanced sense of smell enables him to determine the circle a
    condemned soul will be placed in, stabbing the soul onto a torture device that
    sends the damned to their just punishments. He is killed after Dante uses the
    torture device to split his face in half, opening the path to the Second
    Circle.
    
       ~-~  Cleopatra VII Philopator  ~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~
    
     ~ Voice Actress: Alison Lees-Taylor
    
     A former Egyptian queen now turned into a succubus after her death. She is the
    guardian of the second circle of Hell, where the lustful are punished. She is
    also extremely narcissistic, seeing herself as beautiful while the other shades
    and demons can see how repulsive she truly is. Promised her love Mark Antony in
    exchange, Cleopatra fights Dante as a giant during his ascent of the Carnal
    Tower before summoning Mark Antony to aid her until he is defeated. Shrinking
    back to human size, enraged that she is denied her love, Cleopatra tries to
    seductively kill Dante herself, but to no avail as he runs her through with the
    Scythe.
    
       ~-~  Marc Anthony  ~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~
    
     ~ Voice Actor: Lewis Macleod
    
     The Roman politician and supporter of Caesar who committed suicide as
    Cleopatra's lover, he is fought as a boss, fighting as the Egyptian queen's
    champion as part of Lucifer's deal with her. Corrupted by the powers of Hell,
    he is a towering humanoid armed with a great sword and a massive Roman shield,
    with a hideously disfigured and oversized torso and a half-skinned, statuesque
    head, covered with groping-hand like wooden patterns on his body. He is
    defeated by Dante, and dies while a mourning Cleopatra watches over him.
    
       ~-~  Cerberus  ~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~
    
     A three-headed hellhound who guards the third circle of Hell, Gluttony.
    Cerberus appears as a mass of worm-like stomach escaping from a large humanoid
    maw in the ground and having numerous other worms sticking out of each of its
    heads. The three heads also constantly fight over their meals and in some cases
    will vomit out anything that is consumed, even using these as projectiles
    against its quarry. Despite having front legs, the demon is completely immobile
    due to being stuck in the ground from the mid section up. Dante succeeds in
    killing the demon by severing each of its heads before destroying the middle
    head in an explosion after it tried to unsuccessfully devour him.
    
       ~-~  Alighiero  ~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~
    
     ~ Voice Actor: JB Blanc
    
     Dante's sinful father, Alighiero, lived a life of greed. Alighiero beat his
    wife and son often, and it is speculated he forced Beatrice to have a
    miscarriage and lose Dante's baby, which they had out of wedlock. He lived in
    his family villa outside of Florence. He was murdered by Dante's assassin; his
    golden cross pendant impaled through his right eye. Lucifer has warped
    Alighiero into a obese monster and promised him 1000 years free of torment and
    a horde of gold if he does one thing; murder his own son. Confronting his son
    as he enters the Fourth Circle, Alighiero is later defeated by Dante who then
    absolves him.
    
       ~-~  Plutus  ~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~
    
     The fallen God of Wealth. Plutus appears as a living golden statue with
    multiple arms and several blue gems in different parts of his body. He is
    widely worshipped by those residing within the Fourth Circle. Not a boss, he is
    instead used to solve the Wheel of Fortune puzzle that hinders Dante's path.
    While he does not move, he utters the phrase "Pape Satàn, pape Satàn aleppe."
    
       ~-~  Phlegyas  ~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~
    
     A former demigod who fell from grace after being killed by Apollo for burning
    down the Apollonian Temple of Delphi. Condemned to the fifth circle of Hell,
    Phlegyas confronts Dante when he unknowingly rides across the Styx on the
    wrathful demigod's crown. After a brief confrontation in which Phlegyas sends
    various demons after Dante and inadvertently killing them in the fight, Dante
    takes control of Phlegyas and uses him to break into the City of Dis. When
    Dante reaches the circle of Heresy, Phlegyas breaks the ground he's standing
    on. Dante manages to jump off in time but Phlegyas breaks through the floor and
    plummets into the abyss.
    
       ~-~  Francesco Portinari  ~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~
    
     ~ Voice Actor: Tom Tate
    
     A former Crusader and Beatrice's brother. Francesco was a close friend of
    Dante's during the Crusades. Beatrice wished for Dante to protect him, but
    Francesco was executed by King Richard's men after he took blame for the deaths
    of Muslim prisoners by Dante. Ending up in Hell, Francesco is deformed into a
    disfigured parody of his human form with half of his face warped into a
    plantlike appearance. Now a demon, he eagerly awaits the opportunity to kill
    Dante, who he blames for his descent into demonhood. As a demon, he carries
    several swords stabbed into his back which he uses as melee/projectile weapons.
    After Dante manages to remove a sword from his heart, Francesco dies but is
    then absolved by Dante.
    
       ~-~  The Malebranche ~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~
    
     A group of demons lead by Malacoda who guard the eighth circle of Hell, Fraud.
    Malacoda, the leader, is the only demon Dante confronts in battle. The other
    Malebranche are merely set-pieces illustrating the torment that goes on below
    the arenas in which Dante must pass.
    
       ~-~  LUCIFER  ~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~
    
     ~ Voice Actor: John Vickery
    
     The central antagonist of the game, Lucifer was God's most beloved angel, but
    he became envious over having to bow down to humanity and rebelled out of
    concern for his fellow angels, resulting in his fall from grace. Lucifer
    captured Beatrice moments after her death as part of a plan to escape the
    prison he was placed in as punishment for his rebellion by wedding a soul
    destined for Heaven. He makes several appearances as a dark, spectral shadow
    before Dante faces him in person and is capable of capturing the souls of
    deceased humans in that state. His giant body is trapped in Cocytus, a frozen
    lake made of his own tears. When Dante finally confronts him, he manages to
    greatly injure Lucifer, only for the demon to split his own stomach open and
    reveal his true form, a demonic vision of his former self with torn wings who
    reveals the soul he needed was actually Dante's. His intention to marry
    Beatrice was a planned-out deception to have Dante's blackened soul release him
    before taking his leave to Purgatory to enact his vengeance on God. However,
    Dante manages to trap Lucifer back into his prison as the souls he had saved
    binds his giant body in the ice to completely immobilize it.
                                                                        - Wikipedia

     Pop in your Dante's Inferno into your PSP. When you get to the main menu,
    you'll have three options: New Game, Continue and Configuration. Choose New
    Game and let the magic begin.

     Area #01 - Citadel of Acre                                              sx401
    o~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~o
    
     We start in the Citadel of Acre. You'll start in this area with a ton of
    enemies (prisoners). Since they're just human, they won't take that much
    health, so take care of them with your Light Attacks ([] button) and Heavy
    Attacks (/\ button). Once you've taken care of them, a little scene triggers
    and a boat will crash on where you're standing. Jump on it once you regain
    control and double jump on the ledge on the other side and follow the path all
    the way until you trigger a scene and a...
    
    --=======------=======----=-=----===-----===-----------====----=-------===-----
    
       ~-~  BOSS: DEATH  ~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~
    
    Strategy: Not hard at all (I was expecting something as hard as Castlevania
    Deaths XD). You're told how to block attacks (keep pressed the L button) and
    how to evade doing a dodge roll (press L + R buttons while you move in any
    direction you want). During the first 2/3 of Death's health, he'll only have 3
    attacks:
    
    1. 3-attack combo: this is the attack he'll use the most. Simply block all 3
    attacks and attack him right after he ends his combo.
    
    2. Boomerang: he throws his scythe and it comes back. This attack hits twice.
    The first one when he throws it and the second hit is when it comes back, so
    either move away or block it.
    
    3. Wave: he hits the ground and creates a wave that travels through the floor
    with a large range. Simply block it of jump over it.
    
     Once it has only 1/3 of health, it hits the ground and starts floating. He has
    the same attacks, only that he changes attack #2 (boomerang) for #4:
    
    4. Scythe Thrust: his scythe transforms into a spear and he thrusts it into the
    ground, making the area around it to explode. Dodge to evade it.
    
     Once it has around 1/10 of health, an "R" appears over his head. Press the R
    button to trigger a Finisher event. You'll get a hold of Death's Scythe, which
    will be your weapon for the rest of the game =) (pretty neat, huh?!) Now he'll
    be the one asking for forgiveness, but ignore him and attack him. You'll have
    to trigger another Finisher again, but this time, press the buttons as shown to
    finally take care of Death (yay, we "killed" Death... XD)
    
    ==-------======-------====-=-====---=====---===========----====-=======---=====
    
     Now watch the scenes that follow the battle.
    
    -~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-
     Area #02 - Florence                                                     sx402
    o~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~o
    
     Watch the pretty f***ed up scenes that continues after the battle with Death
    and you'll be in the graveyard. Several Skeletons will appear to fight you.
    Just like the prisoners in Acre, take them down with Light and Heavy attacks.
    Once you're done, the firewall disappears. Start following the path and when
    you get to the Cathedral, you're introduced to the Beatrice's Statues, where
    you can save your progress.
    
     Now go to the green fountain (the one shown to you) and grab the health. Now
    save your game and go inside the Cathedral and move to the corpse of Beatrice
    to trigger a scene. Afterwards, the whole Cathedral is falling apart and you're
    entering Hell. You'll also obtain your long-range weapon, the Holy Cross. This
    is activated by pressing O. There will also be a new enemy, a flying one. Use
    the Holy Cross to take care of them.
    
     There are 2 waves of enemies (3 flying enemies each wave). After the second
    wave, quickly move to the left side of the room because the floor on the right
    side will fall down into the pit. Afterwards, several skeletons and flying
    enemies will start appearing. Keep in mind that the lower right side of the
    floor will fall down right as the enemies appear, and soon after, the lower
    left side, so stay at the upper left side of the floor at all times.
    
     Once you've killed all the enemies, a stone cross falls down. Quickly cross to
    the other side of the cross before it falls. Use the green fountain and press R
    on the purple thingy to grab on to the "rope". Go to the bottom and drop down.
    A gate will appear at the end and a huge wheel behind you. Also, several
    skeletons appear. Kill all the skeletons to have the gate open.
    
     Use the green fountain to replenish your health and the red fountain to obtain
    some white souls. Now jump down to the next area and a cross on fire will drop
    down to block your path. Also, a new enemy appears, the Fire Spirit. To defeat
    these enemies, just use the Holy Cross against them once to get rid of the
    fire, then hit them with the scythe to defeat them. Not a problem at all, huh?!
    Kill all 6 Fire Spirits to unblock your path, using the red fountain behind it.
    
     Move to the right and when you get to a green fountain, another gate appears,
    and more skeletons come out and play with you. There's fire coming out of the
    wall, so stay in the area where the green fountain is and don't go too far to
    the left and don't get near the gate on the right. Once the skeletons are no
    more, use the green fountain and proceed.
    
     Another green fountain is at the end of the path, so use it too if you want
    and descend down the rope. Approach the spirit at the end to know that he0s
    called Virgil. He also gives you your first magic, Righteous Path. Press <- on
    the D-pad to activate it. It's also tell you that the purple fountains restores
    your mana. When you regain control, skeletons and flying enemies will appear.
    Dispose of them to have the big guy come out.
    
     He only has 2 attacks. He'll either stomp on the ground or smash it with its
    fists. Wait for his attack to end and combo him. Rinse and repeat. It's better
    to use air combos to dodge the attacks. Use the Finisher event at the end and
    press the button sequence to get a hold of the monster. Nice. Now you have a
    pet =).
    
     Once you got a hold of the "pet", more enemies appear. Kill them and a scene
    triggers where you open the gates to hell! Nice! Now we're at...

     ~ Judas Coins: 5
    
    o~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~o
    
     Press R to talk to Virgil. Now save your game if you want to and approach the
    purple glow to know about the Damned Climb. Go to the bottom and go left to
    find a green fountain. Use it if needed (as per usual) and continue left to
    have the game let you know about the Gap Jump. Do the Gap Jump and drop down.
    Go left and look at the top of the screen to find a red fountain that has
    [Judas Coin 01]. Continue the path to trigger another scene.
    
     Use the purple fountain and use the lever (shown to you with a purple glow)
    and you'll raise the bridge, but some enemies come out and play. Take care of
    them and probably by when you're finished with the monsters, the bridge will be
    gone. If so, use the lever again and quickly cross to the other side before it
    disappears. If it starts moving, jump across the small gap to the other side.
    Use the green fountain here and drop down using the rope.
    
     Once down here, a new enemy appears. One that has a goat head, which is called
    a Guardian. He has a 3 attack combo similar to Death's, so stay away from him
    and attack him once he's done. Use the Finisher event and the pedestal in the
    center reappears. Use it to go to the top (until you can't no more) and quickly
    jump on a ledge on the upper left side of the wall to find [Judas Coin 02]. Now
    go down to the breakable objects you're told about. Keep going down and break
    the wall and go through it.
    
     Break the pots on the right side, grab the [Judas Coin 03], talk to Virgil and
    save your game. Now proceed left until you're ambushed by several enemies.
    After you take them down, another Guardian appears. Take care of him and go
    left to find Pontius Pilate. You can either Punish him or Absolve him to gain
    300 XP on either way. Now open the door and enter it to trigger a scene.
    
     Once it's over, several minions and 2 Guardians appear. Take them out and
    proceed to the left to find a save point. Use it and go behind the statue of a
    crawling man to find a [Judas Coin 04]. Now grab on the rope and move forward
    to trigger a scene. You're now grabbing from a wall. Neat... follow the path
    and you'll be soon enough in a up/right fork. Go right, jump over the gap and
    follow the path to the end to find a [Judas Coin 05]. Now return to the fork
    and go up to get inside him.
    
     Break the pots to find some white souls, break the green fountain and save
    your game. Go forward, break the fountains and jump on the box to get to the
    second level and then a scene will trigger. After it, use the purple fountain
    and talk to Orpheus. Either Punish him or Absolve him and climb your way until
    you exit.
    
     Several enemies will come at you in 3 waves. The first one has several minions
    and 2 Guardians. The second wave has 1 Guardian, some minions and some flying
    enemies. The third and last is only a Guardian and his pet, just like in
    Florence. You already know how to take him out, don't ya?! Once you grab a hold
    on the pet, kill the Guardians that appear on the floor and then move to the
    head of Charon. Use a Finisher to rip off his head and a scene triggers.
    
     When you regain control, move your ass and run as fast as possible. When the
    bridge starts collapsing on the other side, wait a little bit to see a purple
    glow. Wait for the right time and press R to swing across to get to...

     ~ Judas Coins: 2
    
    o~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~o
    
     Talk to Virgil and he'll tell you about Minos, the ruler of the Limbo. Talk to
    him again to get some white souls. Now go to the right and drop down on the
    wall. Follow the path, use the green fountain if you need to and break the
    walls at the end of this path. When you get to a fork (you'll see the head of
    Charon stuck in the face), to left to a little room where a Guardian appears.
    Defeat him and use the red fountain for some souls.
    
     Return to where Charon's head is and go up past the head to find a red
    fountain with some souls. Return to the fork and go right this time. A little
    scene triggers and you'll have to fight a baby (Unblessed Infants). Use the
    Cross to play it safe. First you'll have one, then 4, then 6 babies and then 6
    more babies. Now proceed and you'll see Virgil. Talk to him twice to get some
    souls.
    
     Now open the door next to him and open the next door to find Electra. Punish
    or Absolve as always. Return, save your game and go up the path. Some minions
    will come out and play. Kill them all and go all the way to the top. Open the
    door up here and follow the path. Save your game when possible and proceed left
    to be ambushed by some Guardians and some Unblessed Infants. Kill the Unblessed
    Infants first, then focus on the Guardians. Once you kill a Guardian, 2 more
    Unblessed Infants appear.
    
     Now open the door and talk to Virgil inside. There's a red fountain in the
    lower left side of the room. Use it and go up the stairs to trigger a scene.
    Once it's over, go up the stairs behind the statue and before leaving, go left
    and you'll see a purple glow on a ledge on the other side of the gap. Time your
    jumping, go there and use the lever. The middle statue will fall, so go there
    and grab [Judas Coin 06].
    
     Now go up, use the lever in the purple glow and another purple glow will
    appear over the gap. Cross over it using the R button, use the green and purple
    fountains and then save your game. Now proceed to trigger a scene and a...

       ~-~  BOSS: MINOS  ~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~
    
    Strategy: Not a hard boss at all. The next one is the bitch... literally! Let's
    start with his attacks, shall we?
    
    1. Skewering tentacle: Some tentacles will come from underground and try to
    skewer you. Keep moving at all times to evade this attack.
    
    2. Breath: He'll approach the floor and starts blowing breath. Press the R
    button to grab from the pillar when prompted to evade the attack completely.
    
    3. Tongue: He stays in the same position as in his attack [2], but this time,
    he sticks out his tongue from time to time to hit you. Simply jump over it.
    
    4. Summon: He summons some minions to play with you.
    
    5. Arm: He places his arm on the ground and sweeps the whole battlefield. He
    can also hit the ground with it. Jump over the first attack and dodge the
    second one.
    
     After his attack [5], he often places his hand on the ground, enabling a
    Finisher move. Press the button sequence to have him raise himself so you can
    hit him in the belly. That's his weakness, as well as his face. As you can see,
    that's all of this boss. Hit him whenever he finished his attack [2], and
    complete the Finisher move at the end to take care of him.
    
    ==-------======-------====-=-====---=====---===========----====-=======---=====
    
     After the fight, go forward, use the green fountain and save your game. Go
    down the wall and you're taught how to rappel. Go to the bottom of the rope,
    keep the R button pressed and move left and right to gain momentum. Jump to the
    second rope and from here, go up and break the red fountain at the top to find
    [Judas Coin 07]. That's the last Judas Coin from Limbo. Now go down this second
    rope.
    
     Move to the next rope and go to the top to find a red fountain with some
    souls. Continue on the ropes and soon enough you'll be taught about Rappel
    Combat. Go to the bottom of this rope (where you where taught about the combat)
    and rappel to the right and destroy the wall. There's a purple glow in middle
    of the large gap, similar to the one used to get to Minos. Now follow the ropes
    until you get to...

     ~ Judas Coins: 3
    
    o~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~o
    
     I was expecting this place since I started the game... heheh, but now I find
    it rather disgusting. Anyway, talk to Francesca da Polenta (Punish or Absolve
    as per usual), save your game and proceed to trigger a scene with none other
    than Cleopatra. Now, in this area, take a minute to check out the path ahead.
    There are balls of lightning that shoot from right to left. You need to wait
    for the ball to pass to move to the next segment (a segment consist of 2
    statues).
    
     There are 4 segments. In the second one, there's a lever to make the lightning
    ball go from left to right. This is to open the wind veil that protects the
    tower. Before doing it, move all the way to the fourth segment. On the right
    side, you'll see a green fountain. Move to the left side of this last segment
    and you'll find a climbable wall behind the statue. Follow the wall to find
    [Judas Coin 08].
    
     Return now and check between the third and fourth segments to find a little
    hole in the wall. There's a climbable wall here. Follow it to find there a
    [Judas Coin 09]. Now return to the second segment and wait for the lightning
    ball to be on your segment. Just before it takes off, use the lever to shoot it
    to the tower and quickly run behind it. This will create a hole in the wind
    veil, allowing you to access the tower. A new enemy appears in here, the
    Temptress of Lust. The suckers are hard and annoying. They can dodge, move fast
    towards you and block your attacks.
    
     Probably the best way is to keep your distance and attack with the Holy Cross.
    If they get to close, block and counterattack. Use the lever on the left side
    of the room to open the mouth of the stone snake. Jump on the tongue of this
    snake and climb up the ledge to trigger a scene. Once it's over, go left to
    find a Statue of Beatrice. Save your game if needed/wanted and you'll see in a
    platform behind it a red fountain. Jump to it to find some souls. Return from
    whence you came and go right to find Virgil.
    
     Talk to him twice to get some souls. There's also a red fountain behind him,
    so use it. Return to where Virgil is and get on the big purple platform (the
    same one that went up). Go to the top part to find a moveable statue. Move it
    towards the middle of the platform. Now there are 2 paths on both sides of the
    platform going down. The right one has a green fountain (which you probably
    need) and the left one has a lever. Use it to make the platform go up a little
    bit.
    
     Return and jump on it. Move to the left to find a red fountain with [Judas
    Coin 10] in it. Now go right from the platform to find a red fountain. Use it
    and use the lever to have the platform go up. Jump quickly on it before it
    leaves. You'll now be going up the tower... but there will be millions
    (literally) of demons wanting a piece of you.
    
     The first wave will be 2 Temptress of Lust. Take them out just like before.
    After they're gone, there'll be a Temptress of Lust and a Guardian. Take them
    out as well and now Cleopatra wants to play. Use the R button as it prompts to
    grapple to the wall and evade her attack and instant kill (the platform moves
    and you'll fall if you're not grabbing).
    
     Drop down when the platform takes its place and you'll be moved to the next
    area, which is practically the same. There are a couple of Temptress of Lust
    and several minions. Take them all out to get to the third area of the
    ascension of the tower. This area is where you'll have a little fight with
    Cleopatra. If you check both the left and right sides, there is a green and
    purple fountains. On top of these fountains are 2 purple glows. What you need
    to do is to activate both in a really short time so you can knock Cleopatra off
    the tower.
    
     The left side starts inaccessible. Kill the waves of enemies that appear until
    only minions appear (2 waves if I remember correctly). Once they're gone, the
    platform on the left side raises. Afterwards, hit her hand to raise the
    platform a little -- then run quickly to the left side and jump on the ledge
    and use the lever. This will make the snakes point towards her.
    
     Return to the platform and probably she'll have regained balance. If that's
    the case, hit her hand as fast as you can (use the Holy Cross) to raise the
    platform once again. Now run to the right side and use the lever to have the
    snakes breath fire. This will make Cleopatra to move upwards, along with you to
    the fourth area of the ascension of the tower. There will be more Temptress of
    Lust and flying enemies this time.
    
     Once you're done with these enemies, you'll finally reach the top. From where
    we start, go right to find a red fountain and at the bottom, you'll find Paolo
    Malatesta [Punish or Absolve]. Return and go left this time. Save your game,
    use the green and purple fountains and start climbing down the wall. When you
    get to floor, you'll find Semiramis [Punish or Absolve]. Before moving on, go
    left from Semiramis and there's a gap with a path on the other side, rather
    difficult to see. Jump over this gap and use the red fountain to find some
    souls.
    
     Return and go up the wall to trigger a scene and a...
    
    --=======------=======----=-=----===-----===-----------====----=-------===-----
    
       ~-~  BOSS: MARC ANTHONY AND CLEOPATRA  ~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~
    
    Strategy: This fight can be either hard or easy. The first time I played
    through here, I felt this fight almost impossible. But now I know what to do.
    First of all, DO NOT use your Scythe. Anthony blocks your attacks, making it
    very damaging to you, so stay away from physical attacks. Make sure you have
    your Holy Cross upgraded so you can charge your attacks.
    
    1. Attack combo: He hits for a 4-hit combo. Dodge and quickly run away to evade
    his final thrust attack that has a really long range. [Marc Anthony]
    
    2. Righteous Path: He has a similar attack that looks like Dante's Righteous
    Path, only that it travels alone, while Marc stays in the same place. Simply
    move aside to evade it. [Marc Anthony]
    
    3. Needles: Right after Marc's Righteous Path, he follows you with his shield
    and shoots out 3 needles. Simply keep running to evade it. [Marc Anthony]
    
    4. Lust Storm: Cleopatra creates a little purple tornado that travels in random
    directions. If it hits you, it'll stagger you. If it hits Marc, he'll be
    invincible for a little period. [Cleopatra]
    
    5. Healing: Once you've dealt some damage to Marc, Cleopatra starts healing
    Marc. Attack Cleopatra's hand to make her fall. Use the Holy Cross to quickly
    dispose of her. [Cleopatra]
    
     The best thing to do is to approach Marc so he starts his attack [1]. When he
    does this, move to the other side of the battlefield and charge your Holy
    Cross. When he comes towards you, unleash your power of the Cross to take a
    huge chunk of health.
    
     Once you've taken care of Marc Anthony, Cleopatra shrinks and starts a
    Finisher event with you. It's only 3 buttons, so not hard at all.
    
    ==-------======-------====-=-====---=====---===========----====-=======---=====
    
     Once you've dealt with both of them, you'll receive the Lust Storm magic,
    which activates by pressing "v" on the D-pad. You'll now be going down the
    tower the same way you got up, so several enemies to appear. There are also
    stones that come falling down. Beware though, because a large rock will fall
    and break down the right side of the platform.
    
     After some more demons, the upper left side of the platform disappears, then
    the lower side. The screen the fades out. When it fades it, prepare to press
    the R button to hatch on to the purple glow. You now need to jump from glow to
    glow. Talk to Virgil at the end twice and move on to the next area.
    
     This area is called Cerberus, and it's filled with ropes and pillars. It's
    similar to the area between Limbo and Lust (right after the fight with Minos),
    only that this time you need to evade fire. Follow the ropes and pillars until
    you get to...

     Talk to Virgil twice as per usual, use the fountains and go down the pillar on
    the wall to trigger a scene and a...
    
    --=======------=======----=-=----===-----===-----------====----=-------===-----
    
       ~-~  BOSS: CERBERUS  ~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~
    
    Strategy: Cerberus is easy, even though it hits hard... and I mean HARD! Locate
    the pustules on the floor. Press R and tap the O button to break it open and
    have fire come out. If Cerberus attacks you using attack [2] while the fire is
    coming out, the head will stagger and fall on the floor. Use this time to
    attack it.
    
     After you've attacked him 2-3 times, you'll trigger a Finisher event with this
    head. You'll only have to press /\ once to cut off the head. Nice. Do the same
    thing on the other head. Once you only have the middle head, it'll start using
    attack [1] over and over. Use the pustules on the floor to make your life a bit
    easier. You could also make it lunge into you, dodge it and attack it. Yep,
    that's all. Complete the Finisher move on the last head to get rid of Cerberus.
    
    1. Lunge: It'll lunge one of its head towards you. Dodge to evade it.
    
    2. Puke Balls: It'll throw puke balls at you. Stay in motion to evade them.
    
    ==-------======-------====-=-====---=====---===========----====-=======---=====
    
     Proceed over Cerberus' corpse, save your game when you get to Beatrice's
    Statue, jump over the gap and use the red fountain to get [Judas Coin 11].
    Another 2,000 soul bonus. Keep going further it and you'll notice a little dark
    cloud on the floor. Don't walk over it because a worm will come out and bit
    you, literally. Proceed, grab the green and purple fountains and go down the
    hole.
    
     Down here, you'll be attack be several minions, but the annoying part is that
    there are 3 worms down here, so be really careful where you step. Proceed, save
    your game and [Absolve or Punish] Ciacco. Now use both fountains next to him
    and proceed over the teeth. The mouth will close and 4 flying enemies will
    appear. Take extreme caution not to fall and die. Now jump from platform to
    platform and enter the next mouth to the left to find Clodia [Punish or
    Absolve].
    
     Return 2 platforms, get on the rope and pass the mud and enter the last mouth.
    Talk to Virgil twice when you get to him and proceed further in to have more
    enemies appear. There are a lot of minions and some Guardians. Nothing new,
    only that the place is really small, so make sure to keep some distance between
    you and the enemies.
    
     Proceed, use the fountains, save your game and proceed through the blue
    entrance. A nice scene triggers in here (and by nice I don't mean cute). Once
    it's over, you'll have to fight a Glutton. He only pukes in front of himself
    and chases you. Use your Holy Cross to take care of him. After the fight,
    you'll be in a maze, a real nice one.
    
     Go inside the portal here and you'll appear at the top. Use the lever here,
    return from whence you came and you'll appear on the bottom of where you just
    were. Before anything, go up the wall on the right, and at the top, climb the
    next wall to find a red fountain with [Judas Coin 12] inside. Return and use
    the lever here and a platform will appear for a short amount of time. Return
    inside the portal, run across the platform and jump over to the other side. Use
    the green fountain here and DO NOT use the lever.
    
     Instead of that, wait for the moving platform to be under the portal that's
    facing down in the upper left side of screen. Stay on the platform and it'll
    suddenly go to the right before entering the portal. Jump to the right where
    the red fountain is to find [Judas Coin 13]. Return on top of the platform and
    wait until it enters a portal and takes you out of there. Save your game and
    proceed until you can go down a wall. Go down this pillar, jump at the bottom
    and grab the rope. Swing across to the left and grab the pillar. Jump to the
    top to grab [Judas Coin 14] from the fountain.
    
     Follow the path completely until you reach the bottom, where there's a hole
    throwing fire and 3 holes that have statues. Take the statue on the far left
    and put it in the hole on the far right. Go up the rope and swing across the
    fire. Break the huge wall here and go down the pillar. Grab the rope and cross
    to the left side. Once at the end, drop down and quickly press R to hatch on to
    the purple glow.
    
     Swing across the firewall, use the rope to get to the pillar on the far left
    side and go to the bottom, drop down to get to...

     ~ Judas Coins: 5
    
    o~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~o
    
     Follow the path, and when the path raises, jump up and before moving forward,
    go to the right to find a hidden red fountain that contains [Judas Coin 15].
    Proceed and use the green and purple fountains when you get to them and
    continue on to trigger a scene. Now talk to Virgil twice, save your game and
    hop on the moving platforms. Make your way across these and jump on the
    platform on top of the liquid gold.
    
     Jump on the moving platform and at the end, jump on the platform going up and
    down. Move on to the larger platform on top and use the lever to trigger a
    scene. Now there's liquid gold pouring down from the huge pot. There will also
    be some flying enemies, as well as some Guardians. Kill them and some Fire
    Spirits will appear (I didn't remember about these enemies until they appeared
    =P). Take them out (first use the Cross to extinguish their fire and then hit
    them) and use the lever. Now move on to the bridge before you die.
    
     Now jump on the circular platforms, go to the top one and jump over to the
    left ones, then jump on the top right one. Time your jumping so that you get to
    Tarpeia, which you can [Absolve or Punish]. Now move to the left, use the green
    and purple fountains if you need to and open the door. Go in to find a new
    enemy called Hoarders and Wasters and they like to spin... a lot. You'll have
    to fight several of them, but also a ton of minions. Use your Cross to stay at
    a distance.
    
     Once it's over, use the lever, jump on the ledge and use this lever. The lever
    on the ledge opens the door on top. The lever on the floor makes the spiky
    platforms go up and down. What you need to do is to open the door, quickly use
    the bottom lever to move the platforms and as fast as possible, return up the
    ledge before the platforms skewers you, then jump on it. Then enter the door.
    
     Use the purple fountain in here and use the lever. Once you reach the bottom,
    save your game and jump down the hole in middle of the room. 3 Guardians appear
    down here. There are also 3 red fountains. 2 have souls and the other one has
    [Judas Coin 16]. Once you kill the Guardians, the gate lowers. Now climb up the
    wall to reach the entrance. Do you see the 4 spiked arms that go around the
    room? You need to double jump over them in order to get to the door. Before
    entering the door though, jump over to the right one more time to find Gessius
    Florus [Absolve or Punish].
    
     Return, open the door, open the next door and proceed until you find a lever.
    What the lever does is to put the 4 blades (2 on each side) spinning across the
    room. There will also be minions spawning. What you need to do is to move the
    lever to lower the gate on the right side, but just lower it the amount you
    need to. If you lower it too much, the walls will close in and squash you. You
    could also use Lust Storm to keep the minions at bay.
    
     Once on the other side of the gate, there will be a Beast Tamer (just like the
    one in the beginning of the game). Take care of him, grab the red fountains
    before knocking him out and approach the door to trigger a little scene. Now,
    wait for the blades to pass and open the door as fast as possible. Now save
    your game and proceed to find Virgil once more. Talk to him twice like always,
    go up the wall, and instead of going all the way up, go right and drop down in
    the first pit to find some souls. Return up a little and keep going right to
    find [Judas Coin 17].
    
     Return to where Virgil is and now go all the way up the wall. Use the
    fountains here and jump to grab on the purple glow. Swing to the other side,
    grab on the rope and proceed. Drop down to have a Guardian appear. Take care of
    him and a gate lowers. Go through it and use the red fountain to find [Judas
    Coin 18]. Go up, use the lever and return to where the Guardian appeared to
    have the platform take you across the Greed Circle. When it stops, jump on the
    other cauldron when it gets back up. When this one stops, jump down (be careful
    not to fall down in the liquid gold).
    
     Now jump on the central circular platform and use the lever to burn the
    corpses hiding another lever. Go to this lever and some minions appear. Take
    care of them, use the lever down here, turn it to the right and return to the
    upper lever. Use it to lower a block. Get on top of it and into the alcove to
    find some souls and a [Judas Coin 19]. Return to the lower lever to have more
    minions appear. Take care of them and move the lever to the left this time.
    Return to the upper lever and fire to lower the left block.
    
     Go up this block, open the door, grab the souls from the fountains, save your
    game and use the lever at the end to lower the platform. Talk to Virgil down
    here twice, jump over the gap to be at the foot of Plutus. 2 Guardians and some
    minions appear. Take care of them and a lever appears in the middle, as well as
    a pillar and a glow of light coming out of Plutus.
    
     There are 2 small pillars and 2 big ones. What you need to do is to put one
    big pillar in the upper right side and a small one on the lower right side.
    Make sure that the big pillar doesn't have the extension that blocks your way
    of jumping. Now jump on Plutus' left hand, grab the souls at the top and enter
    the door. Grab the purple fountain and grab the rope. Cross to the other side,
    grab the fountains and talk twice to Virgil.
    
     Jump ahead, grab on the purple glow and jump on the wall. Climb it and some
    enemies will attack (minions, Guardians and Gluttons). Once you take care of
    them, enter the door, swing across the gap and you'll be now on some moving
    clogs. There will also be some pillars dropping down to squash you. Move
    carefully and jump on the ledge to the left at the end of the clogs. Open the
    door, go through it, climb the wall and when you get down, talk to Fulvia
    [Punish or Absolve].
    
     Open the door, save your game and use the right lever and at the bottom use
    the lower one to make a platform appear. Jump on it and a Beast Tamer comes
    out. Once you have control of the monster, approach the upper wall to have a
    ton of Guardians appear. Take them out (piece of cake), grab the huge block and
    push it forward to make it fit into the hole. Now go to the end of the path and
    climb up the wall.
    
     Follow the path and you'll be at Plutus again. Several more Guardians will
    appear. Take them out and another block appears. Move it towards the entrance
    the first time you where here (on the right side). This will make the statue of
    Plutus to go down, so go up the wall from whence you came and jump over to the
    left side. Follow the path until you reach another familiar place. More
    Guardians. Take them out and a scene triggers. Now you'll be in a...

       ~-~  BOSS: ALIGHIERO  ~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~
    
    Strategy: To tell you the truth, Cerberus was harder than this one. If you
    breezed through Cerberus, you'll do the same with Alighiero. His attacks are
    the following:
    
    1. Slash: He'll slash with his cross only one in any direction (he slashes in 5
    + directions). Dodge to evade it.
    
    2. Holy Cross: He'll throw a little golden cross that homes in on you. Guard
    until it ends.
    
    3. Pain wave: Once you've dealt around 2/3 of damage, he'll stick his cross in
    the ground and start creating waves that hurt you. Stay away from them.
    
     I think that's all of his attacks. The good thing is that he'll most of the
    time do attack [1]. Since he's slow, you can easily dodge him. When you've
    dealt a certain amount of damage, he'll stagger. Use Righteous Path to really
    hurt him. While the magic is going, combo him using Light attacks (I feel they
    take more health than Heavy attacks).
    
     That's it for this boss. Told ya! Easy peasy (sp?). ;)
    
    ==-------======-------====-=-====---=====---===========----====-=======---=====
    
     Watch the scene after the battle. You'll also gain a new magic, Sins of the
    Father. Use it by pressing -> on the D-pad. Now proceed, open the door, save
    the game on the other side and use the lever to have the platform take you to
    the other side. Grab the souls from both fountains and use the lever to have

     Save your game if you want to, proceed and grab the 2 red fountains. Now move
    to the end of the path, descend the pillar on the wall, drop down at the bottom
    and press R to hook up to the purple glow. Swing across the green waterfall and
    grab on the pillar on the other side. Slide to the bottom, let go off the
    pillar and grab onto the rope.
    
     Start swinging, break the wall on the left, jump and grab onto the purple glow
    and swing across the gap. Descend the pillar on the other side and you've
    officially arrived at Anger. Grab the souls from the red fountain, grab the
    souls from the lower right fountain, save your game and talk to Virgil twice.
    Now proceed and you'll find yourself in a swampy area. Jump on the circular
    patch of land in front of you.
    
     There's a rope tied on the tree, so grab on to it, cross the swamp and the
    jump from platform to platform and follow the path until you're ambushed by
    some enemies: 2 Gluttons, infinite minions and a new enemy, which I don't know
    it's name. These enemies summon minions, Unblessed Infants and Temptresses of
    Lust. Take these guys out first always. Take care of the Pest here, then take
    care of the minions and then take care of the Gluttons.
    
     Follow the path, grab the souls from the red fountain and save your game. Now
    jump on the platform (you must be quick because it sinks), then jump and grab
    on to the purple glow. Swing across the swamp and on the other side, grab the
    box and pull/push it down. You'll see that there's a ledge on the right side
    that you can get to by using the box. Jump up here to grab [Judas Coin 20].
    
     Now move the box on the lower platform to have it sink, creating a passage for
    you. Talk to Virgil twice when you get to him then climb the wall. When you get
    to a fork, you can go right to find a green fountain. Use it if you need it. If
    not, then go down from the fork. Follow the wall until you reach a circular
    area where some minions and Guardians will ambush you.
    
     Take them out and before proceeding, check the right side of the circular area
    to find a little area with mud and a gate on the other side. Use the Holy Cross
    to break the gate (make sure it's completely gone before you jump). Here,
    you'll find Boudica [Punish or Absolve]. Return and now follow the path. Save
    your game when possible, go right, use the green fountain and jump on the rope.
    Cross all the way to the left to find a purple fountain and [Judas Coin 21].
    
     Return and now drop down in the middle platform. It'll sink a little and some
    minions and Guardians appear. Another summoning enemy appears. Take care of it
    before it starts spamming the floor with minions. Now jump up the ledge, grab
    the souls from the fountain and follow the path until you find a green and
    purple fountain, as well as a Beatrice's Statue. Save your game and proceed to
    trigger a scene.
    
     Afterwards, enter the building to find Hecuba [Punish or Absolve]. Now use the
    lever in the middle to lower the fire pillar. Quickly jump on the platform and
    move the gear on the wall following its trail so you can raise the platform
    you're standing on. You'll start getting the trailed blocked by a "block".
    Destroy it, as well as the minions that start appearing. You'll come across 3
    blocks that block you. Break the left one and have the gear moved to the far
    right when you're at the top to have a little floor lower in the left side.
    
     Climb up the wall here and use the lever to trigger a scene. Afterwards, go
    right, grab the souls from the fountain and go right some more to find Virgil
    (ignore the purple glow for now). Talk to him twice as per usual and jump on
    the ledge to the right. Follow this small path to find [Judas Coin 22] at the
    end. Return now to the purple glow and go down the pillar. At the bottom, use
    the green fountain and you'll also find Filippo Argenti [Punish or Absolve].
    
     Now jump on the platform in the mud and it'll start moving forward. Several
    Pests will attack you. Use your Holy Cross to deal with them. When you get to
    the end, some hands will come out of the mud. Be ready to press buttons so you
    don't die. Wow, who would've thought it was Phlegyas? Anyway, after all the
    buttons pressed, you'll be attacked by some minions and Hoarders and Wasters.
    Take them out while you evade the hands of Phlegyas.
    
     Now go through the gates that opened to trigger a scene. Afterwards, grab the
    souls from both fountains, save your game and proceed. Grapple to the purple
    glow, swing across, use the purple fountain and use the lever. A bridge will
    appear, but also several minions and 2 summoning enemies. Take them out and the
    gate will fall. Go through it, grab the souls from the fountain, use the green
    one as well and save your game.
    
     Make the bridge appear once again and now go right across the bridge. Some
    Guardians will appear. Phlegyas also has a new attack. He breathes fire. Simply
    jump over it. After the waves and waves of Pests and Guardians, Phlegyas will
    break the right wall and a platform will lower behind it. A Guardian is on top
    of it, so be careful. Use the lever once you've taken care of it and a scene
    will trigger. Now you're at...

    o~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~o
    
     Like in all circles, we have to get there by swinging and whatnot. When you
    get to the third rope, break the wall to make the upper ledge fall down. Now
    climb up, grab the souls from the fountain and save your game. Now go left and
    use the lever to make the spikes go in. As you try to return, some minions come
    out. Kill them all and reuse the lever.
    
     Return to the rope and swing across before the spikes come out. Go down the
    pillar and drop down on the rope. Go to the left and drop down to another rope.
    Kill the Pests on the right side (there are 3 of them) and then swing across to
    the left and grab on the next rope. Kill 3 more Pests and swing to the left and
    grab on to the pillar. Go to the bottom (beware of the fire holes) and talk to
    Virgil twice.
    
     Now use both fountains and save your game. Open the door and once you step
    inside, a Guardian appears. Take care of it and use the lever. The fire will
    disappear. Proceed a little bit and another Guardian appears, along with some
    minions. Take care of them and the gate at the end will open. Climb the wall in
    here and when you get down, a little scene where a Guardian appears triggers.
    
     Kill the Guardians and some minions come out to play. Kill them too and use
    the fountains in this room to get some souls. Now open the door and speak to
    Virgil twice. Now jump on the bone pillar next to Virgil (it's not that
    visible) and at the top, you'll find a soul fountain right away and a [Judas
    Coin 23] at the end.
    
     Return to where Virgil is and go down the purple glow next to him. Now go down
    the bone pillar and once on the rope, go to the far left and drop down to find
    [Punish or Absolve] and a green and purple fountains. Go left, save your game
    and go left to be ambushed by some minions and a new enemy, the Heretic. These
    guys are invincible against your Holy Cross and make the enemies with them also
    invincible, so stick with the Scythe until you kill the Heretic.
    
     Once you've dispatched all the enemies, go through the newly opened door and
    get on the wall. Climb it and follow it completely. Grab the 2 soul fountains
    at the end, save your game and proceed right. Kill the minions and the Heretic
    and use the lever at the end. This will reveal a path. Ignore the fountains on
    the right side behind the gate. They're inaccessible at this point.
    
     Once the door is opened, climb the wall on the left until you reach Virgil,
    which must talk to once (heheh, you can't twice =P). Now go left, use the green
    and purple fountains if you need to then open the door. Step inside and a gate
    will appear behind you. Grab the crate on the left side and move it to the
    square button on the center of the room. Now grab the box and keep O pressed.
    
     Push the crate to make an opening in the flames. Quickly go up to be ambushed
    by an Heretic and some Pests. Kill them, use the purple fountain and use the
    lever if you want to make the flames disappear. Now go through the door and
    you'll find Cavalcante de' Cavalcanti [Punish or Absolve]. Climb the wall to
    get to the other side of the room, open the door and enter the room.
    
     Before using the lever, follow the path, grab the souls from the fountains,
    save your game, proceed and use the fountain to get [Judas Coin 24]. Now grab
    the crate, take it to the entrance of the room and put it left of the lever.
    Now use the lever and push the crate in the nook to make the cauldron stuck.
    You'll see that the gate that guarded the 2 fountains is lowered. Backtrack
    until you get to these 2 fountains, which only have souls.
    
     Save your game on the Beatrice's Statue nearby and climb the wall next to the
    fountains. Follow the wall, open the door at the end, grab the souls from the
    fountain and proceed to have 2 minions appear. Kill them and look at the
    platform you're standing on. It's moving. There's another platform on the upper
    part that goes up and down. Wait for the fire to disappear and jump over to
    that platform.
    
     Kill both minions that appear and stay on the left side of this platform. When
    you see a fire hole, there's a ledge behind it. Wait for the fire to disappear
    and jump on the ledge to find Farinata [Punish or Absolve]. Return to the
    platform and when you get to the top, wait for the fire on the right to
    disappear and jump on the platform to the right. Some more minions appear here.
    Kill them and wait for the platform to go up.
    
     Once on top, jump on the platform to the upper left. Go through the opening to
    have the fire holes close. Anyway, proceed and save your game if you want/need
    to. Grab the rope at the end, cross to the other side and you'll find a red and
    green fountain. The red has souls, so grab them. Use the lever and the huge
    statue is destroyed. Now climb up there and open the door at the end.
    
     Climb the wall and follow it until you get to safe floor. Go down the purple
    glow to find [Judas Coin 25]. Return and grab the souls from the fountains.
    Proceed forward, jump over the gap (watch out for the spires that are falling
    down. They can block your path and kill you) and jump over the next gap to
    stand on a square platform. Wait for the upper left one to fall, jump on the
    upper right one and quickly jump and grapple on to the purple glow that's out
    of sight.
    
     Jump and you'll grab on the wall. Go up and jump on the platforms (walk slowly
    to know which platforms fall) and when you get to 2 little platforms, jump on
    the lower one and quickly jump on the next one. Wait for the wall to fall and
    jump on to the wall to grab it. Climb it and follow the tiny path to get to...

    o~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~o
    
     Talk to Virgil twice and he tells you that the circle of Violence has 3 more
    inner circles... dammit. Save your game, go down the pillar and drop down onto
    the rope. Go all the way to the right, drop down and on this rope, go to the
    upper part to find Attila [Punish or Absolve]. You'll also find a [Judas Coin
    26]. Return, drop on the rope below when possible, follow this one, drop down
    at the end and grapple on to the purple glow.
    
     Swing across the nothingness and grab on to the rope. Follow this rope and
    then grab on to the rope. Go to the bottom, drop down and keep /\ pressed to
    destroy the little block there. The minotaur statue will turn and hit the wall
    with the axe. Use the lever to move the statue all the way to the left and make
    it hit the wall 3 more times to have the axe break and break the wall on the
    right.
    
     Grab the rope once again, swing, grapple on to the purple glow and swing
    across the gap to land on a bone pillar. Follow it to the bottom to reach The
    Phlegethon, River of Boiling Blood. Follow the path, talk twice to Virgil and
    continue on. Use the 2 fountains if you need to (make sure not to fall into the
    blood) and jump on the platform to have a new enemy appear, the Arch Demon.
    This enemy is like the Guardians, only that it has a ranged attack with its
    wings.
    
     Once you've dealt some damage, a Finisher will prompt. Instead of killing it,
    you only tear off the wings, making it a normal Guardian. Take it out like you
    normally do. Now proceed, jump on the platform on the blood and go up the bone
    pillar. Up here, watch out for the fire that can cover the whole floor and
    grapple on to the purple glow. On the other platform, more fire will come out
    of the statue at a set amount of time. Also, 2 more Arch Demons will appear.
    Stay on the lower right side of the platform to be safe from the fire.
    
     On the left side, you'll find a bone pillar and a climbable wall. Go down the
    climbable wall a little bit and go inside the statue itself. Follow the path in
    here to find a [Judas Coin 27]. Return and go to the bottom to find some souls
    in a fountain. Jump over the gap, save your game and now you need to jump from
    cage to cage (stay long enough in the first cage to have the second one raise
    enough for you to jump to the next one) until you reach the Wood of the
    Suicides.
    
     Before talking to Virgil, go to the left along the shore of the blood and jump
    on the ledge to find another [Judas Coin 28]. Now talk to Virgil twice, use the
    green fountain if needed and proceed. When you get to a tree with a red circle
    (named Suicidal Tree), don't get near it. If you do, quickly press O to get rid
    of it while you steer Dante out of the Tree's radius.
    
     When you get to the next one, keep going right and hit the red root on the
    right side of the screen to make the Tree next to this root disappear. Follow
    the path behind this tree, save your game and proceed to be ambushed by an
    Heretic and several Pests. Take the Heretic down first and kill the rest of the
    Pests with the Holy Cross.
    
     Follow the path, grab the souls from the fountains and soon enough you'll come
    across Pietro della Vigna [Punish or Absolve]. Now follow the path and you'll
    be trapped. Do not go further in or you'll fall into the blood and die. Kill
    all the Pests that appear, then grab the souls from the fountain and grab the
    block. Put it in the blood and jump across. Use the fountains on the other side
    if you need to and proceed.
    
     Destroy the red root, go right to get near the beginning of the Woods. Go up,
    left at the fork and in this area, you'll be ambushed. Notice the sparkling
    tree that's getting lower and lower. Attack it to have it go up and some
    minions and Guardians appear. Once you take care of a wave or demons, the tree
    lowers. Attack it to go back up and another wave of demons will come. Do this
    over and over until a scene triggers and you receive Martyr Magic, which
    activates by pressing ^ on the D-pad.
    
     Several enemies will come afterwards. Kill them using your new Spell if you
    like and proceed to get to Abominable Sands. Talk twice to Virgil, save your
    game behind him and use the green fountain if needed. You'll see that the path
    has like lava on the floor. Quickly run and keep jumping so you avoid getting
    to much damage. Use the purple Fountain if needed and proceed to find another
    soul fountain on the right side of the path.
    
     Stay on the right side of the path and jump on the ledge, then jump on the
    other one to find a [Judas Coin 29] and Brunetto Latini [Punish or Absolve].
    Drop down to the left, use the purple fountain and proceed to be ambushed by
    some minions and a Guardian. Kill them, use the green fountain and proceed.
    When  you get to a safe place (on the floor), you'll see Guido Guerra [Punish
    or Absolve].
    
     Proceed and you'll find a purple and green fountain. Use them and continue to
    trigger a scene and then you'll be introduced to a new enemy, the Damned
    Crusaders. These are like upgraded versions of the minions. After each wave,
    pieces of the ceiling will fall, bringing more Damned Crusaders and making the
    floor dangerous. Proceed after they're gone, use the green fountain and save
    your game.
    
     Go up, jump on the platform and then jump on the wall. Grab [Judas Coin 30]
    and return to the ledge on the right and go up then jump to the other side.
    Follow the path, use the purple fountain and a little afterwards, at the
    distance, you'll see a strange structure.
    
     What you need to do here is to push this structure all the way to the top,
    then return a little and check the left side of the area to find some ledges
    which you can climb up, jump on the structure and jump on the building where a
    green fountain is waiting for you. Note that minions will come out and play
    with you while you push the structure. Use Martyr to blow them away, or use
    Lust Storm to keep them at bay.
    
     Either way, use the green fountain at the top, go left, follow the climbable
    wall and keep following the path. Talk to Virgil twice, use the green fountain
    (another one?) and save your game. Now go down the bone pillar to trigger a
    scene and a...

       ~-~  BOSS: FRANCESCO  ~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~
    
    Strategy: Wow, it's been a while since the last boss, hasn't it? Anyway, he
    isn't that hard. The only problem is that you can fall and die. Yep, you can
    fall. Anyway, here are his attacks:
    
    1. Projectile Sword: He'll throw his sword at you (looks like a red sword). If
    you don't jump, evade it (press L + R) to have it stuck to the ground.
    
    2. Combo attack: Like most enemies, get to close to him and he'll start
    slashing around. Just stay away from him.
    
    3. Wave: He sticks his sword in the ground, creating a shockwave that hurts
    you. Jump or stay away.
    
    4. Summon: Once he has less than half the health bar, he starts summoning
    Damned Captains, which will keep respawn. Keep them at bay with your Holy
    Cross.
    
     His shield will lower the damage dealt to him a lot, so you need to take care
    of it first. Wait for him to do attack [1] and if the sword is stuck on the
    ground, go to it and press R to throw it back at him. Do this twice to break
    his shield. Once you do this, use Righteous Path take a huge chunk of health (I
    figured this out at the end of the battle =P).
    
     If you're out of Mana, the single best thing to do is to jump and use Divine
    Tempest, which launches Francesco into the air, so you can combo him up there.
    His shield respawns, so break it again and follow your attacks. Use the
    Finisher at the end to end the fight.
    
    ==-------======-------====-=-====---=====---===========----====-=======---=====
    
     Watch the scene after the fight and you'll be on Geryon's back. Several
    enemies will spawn here, from Damned Crusaders, to Heretics and Arch Demons.

     Move forward, use the fountains and save your game. Now open the door and hop
    on the moving platform. Jump on the circular floor at the end and several
    enemies will appear, which are Temptresses of Lust, Unblessed Infants, minions
    and 1 Heretic. The last wave is the hard one. The Heretic appears, along with 4
    f***ing Temptresses of Lust and several minions. Try to stay airborne, at least
    until you kill the Heretic, so you can spam Holy Cross against the Temptresses
    of Lust.

     Use the green and purple fountains at the end, as well as the save point. Open
    the door and jump on the middle platform. Use the lever to move the platform
    towards the circular one. In this room, there are only 3 waves of monsters. The
    first and second ones will have 1 Glutton, several minions and Pests. The third
    one has 3 Gluttons and an Arch Demon. Take care of the Arch Demon first using
    your Holy Cross, then try killing the Gluttons with Righteous Path, just to

     Use the green and purple fountains at the end, as well as the save point. Open

    that one and then on the circular area. Probably the easiest area so far. There

    save your game and proceed to the circular area. You'll be greeted by some
    Gluttons, Pests and Minions... a lot of them. I hope you saved because you'll
    have a lot of fun fighting the hordes and hordes of enemies that come out. Can
    you guess which is the last wave of enemies? It's... 4 Arch Demons and 3
    Heretics. Yeah, all that in the same battlefield, so there's going to be lag...

     Talk to Virgil twice. Now go right, save your game and spot the Damned Fra
    Alberigo. Use the fountains, go down the bone pillar and follow the rope at the
    bottom to have an Arch Demon come out. The bad thing is that he statues in the
    back start blowing, and you'll fall if you're not careful. Once you've killed
    the Arch Demon, a purple glow appears. Grapple on to it and swing so you can
    grab a rope. Use the rope to swing and break the wall on the right.
    
     Now jump and grab on to the bone pillar. Go up this bone pillar to find
    Mordred [Punish or Absolve]. Grab the souls from the fountain and now go down
    the bone pillar. At the bottom, drop and quickly grapple on to the purple glow.
    Swing and grapple on to the next purple glow, then on to the next bone pillar.
    Go down this bone pillar to officially get to Treachery.
    
     Save your game when prompted and speak to Virgil twice like always and look
    very, VERY closely to the bridge in front of you. See that it has 2 colors? One
    darker than the other? Well, the darker parts will fall, while the clearer one
    (which is in the center of the bridge) is stable. Follow the path completely...
    completely... oh my god, this bridge sure is long.

       ~-~  BOSS: LUCIFER  ~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~
    
    Strategy: Yay, finally the last boss of the game. Luckily enough for the PSP
    users, this only has 2 stages, instead of the 3 battle stages he has in the
    PS3/360 versions. To tell you the truth, he's a bit disappointing. Being the
    final boss, he lacks the creativity to be unique. Yeah, he's just like the
    Guardians and Arch Demons. Anyway, here are his attacks:
    
    1. Teleport: He teleports to anywhere in the battlefield.
    
    2. Combo attack: He rushes towards you from wherever he is and start comboing
    you, just like a Guardian, only that a lot faster.
    
    3. Shockwave: He sends shockwaves towards you. Jump over them.
    
     Each time you deal a set amount of damage, he gets all messed up and drop
    green and purple souls. Keep avoiding the shockwaves and combos and use your
    Cross most of the fight. After he finishes his combo, most of the time he
    teleports to another part and starts using shockwaves. Attack him before he
    teleports with Righteous Path, which is awesome.
    
     When you deplete his health, a little scene triggers and now you'll have to
    face the next and last phase of this fight, only that he has half a bar. Nice.
    Now he has the following attacks:
    
    1. Fire Darts: He shoots 3 fire darts towards you. Dodge them.
    
    2. Fire Wall: He creates a Fire Wall and sends it towards you. Dodge it.
    
    3. Shockwave: He body slams the ground to create a shockwave. Jump over it.
    
     This part is hard. It looks simple, but it's more annoying than it looks. When
    you pass by him, you get the option to grapple on to him. Do so to attack him.
    Use Light attacks. While you're airborne, he also attacks you and damages you,
    without possibility of guarding. This is the annoying part. Keep attacking him
    until he raises into the sky and makes the platforms of the 5 corners of the
    star raise.
    
     Grapple on to the lower one (the only one available) and quickly after,
    grapple on to the next one. Do this over and over until you grapple on to
    Lucifer himself. This will enable a Finisher event. Press the buttons to finish
    Lucifer for good.

       ~-~  BOSS: DEATH  ~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~
    
    Strategy: Not hard at all (I was expecting something as hard as Castlevania
    Deaths XD). You're told how to block attacks (keep pressed the L button) and
    how to evade doing a dodge roll (press L + R buttons while you move in any
    direction you want). During the first 2/3 of Death's health, he'll only have 3
    attacks:
    
    1. 3-attack combo: this is the attack he'll use the most. Simply block all 3
    attacks and attack him right after he ends his combo.
    
    2. Boomerang: he throws his scythe and it comes back. This attack hits twice.
    The first one when he throws it and the second hit is when it comes back, so
    either move away or block it.
    
    3. Wave: he hits the ground and creates a wave that travels through the floor
    with a large range. Simply block it of jump over it.
    
     Once it has only 1/3 of health, it hits the ground and starts floating. He has
    the same attacks, only that he changes attack #2 (boomerang) for #4:
    
    4. Scythe Thrust: his scythe transforms into a spear and he thrusts it into the
    ground, making the area around it to explode. Dodge to evade it.
    
     Once it has around 1/10 of health, an "R" appears over his head. Press the R
    button to trigger a Finisher event. You'll get a hold of Death's Scythe, which
    will be your weapon for the rest of the game =) (pretty neat, huh?!) Now he'll
    be the one asking for forgiveness, but ignore him and attack him. You'll have
    to trigger another Finisher again, but this time, press the buttons as shown to
    finally take care of Death (yay, we "killed" Death... XD)

       ~-~  BOSS: MINOS  ~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~
    
    Strategy: Not a hard boss at all. The next one is the bitch... literally! Let's
    start with his attacks, shall we?
    
    1. Skewering tentacle: Some tentacles will come from underground and try to
    skewer you. Keep moving at all times to evade this attack.
    
    2. Breath: He'll approach the floor and starts blowing breath. Press the R
    button to grab from the pillar when prompted to evade the attack completely.
    
    3. Tongue: He stays in the same position as in his attack [2], but this time,
    he sticks out his tongue from time to time to hit you. Simply jump over it.
    
    4. Summon: He summons some minions to play with you.
    
    5. Arm: He places his arm on the ground and sweeps the whole battlefield. He
    can also hit the ground with it. Jump over the first attack and dodge the
    second one.
    
     After his attack [5], he often places his hand on the ground, enabling a
    Finisher move. Press the button sequence to have him raise himself so you can
    hit him in the belly. That's his weakness, as well as his face. As you can see,
    that's all of this boss. Hit him whenever he finished his attack [2], and
    complete the Finisher move at the end to take care of him.

       ~-~  BOSS: MARC ANTHONY AND CLEOPATRA  ~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~
    
    Strategy: This fight can be either hard or easy. The first time I played
    through here, I felt this fight almost impossible. But now I know what to do.
    First of all, DO NOT use your Scythe. Anthony blocks your attacks, making it
    very damaging to you, so stay away from physical attacks. Make sure you have
    your Holy Cross upgraded so you can charge your attacks.
    
    1. Attack combo: He hits for a 4-hit combo. Dodge and quickly run away to evade
    his final thrust attack that has a really long range. [Marc Anthony]
    
    2. Righteous Path: He has a similar attack that looks like Dante's Righteous
    Path, only that it travels alone, while Marc stays in the same place. Simply
    move aside to evade it. [Marc Anthony]
    
    3. Needles: Right after Marc's Righteous Path, he follows you with his shield
    and shoots out 3 needles. Simply keep running to evade it. [Marc Anthony]
    
    4. Lust Storm: Cleopatra creates a little purple tornado that travels in random
    directions. If it hits you, it'll stagger you. If it hits Marc, he'll be
    invincible for a little period. [Cleopatra]
    
    5. Healing: Once you've dealt some damage to Marc, Cleopatra starts healing
    Marc. Attack Cleopatra's hand to make her fall. Use the Holy Cross to quickly
    dispose of her. [Cleopatra]
    
     The best thing to do is to approach Marc so he starts his attack [1]. When he
    does this, move to the other side of the battlefield and charge your Holy
    Cross. When he comes towards you, unleash your power of the Cross to take a
    huge chunk of health.
    
     Once you've taken care of Marc Anthony, Cleopatra shrinks and starts a
    Finisher event with you. It's only 3 buttons, so not hard at all.
    
    ==-------======-------====-=-====---=====---===========----====-=======---=====
    --=======------=======----=-=----===-----===-----------====----=-------===-----
    
       ~-~  BOSS: CERBERUS  ~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~
    
    Strategy: Cerberus is easy, even though it hits hard... and I mean HARD! Locate
    the pustules on the floor. Press R and tap the O button to break it open and
    have fire come out. If Cerberus attacks you using attack [2] while the fire is
    coming out, the head will stagger and fall on the floor. Use this time to
    attack it.
    
     After you've attacked him 2-3 times, you'll trigger a Finisher event with this
    head. You'll only have to press /\ once to cut off the head. Nice. Do the same
    thing on the other head. Once you only have the middle head, it'll start using
    attack [1] over and over. Use the pustules on the floor to make your life a bit
    easier. You could also make it lunge into you, dodge it and attack it. Yep,
    that's all. Complete the Finisher move on the last head to get rid of Cerberus.
    
    1. Lunge: It'll lunge one of its head towards you. Dodge to evade it.
    
    2. Puke Balls: It'll throw puke balls at you. Stay in motion to evade them.
    
    ==-------======-------====-=-====---=====---===========----====-=======---=====
    --=======------=======----=-=----===-----===-----------====----=-------===-----
    
       ~-~  BOSS: ALIGHIERO  ~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~
    
    Strategy: To tell you the truth, Cerberus was harder than this one. If you
    breezed through Cerberus, you'll do the same with Alighiero. His attacks are
    the following:
    
    1. Slash: He'll slash with his cross only one in any direction (he slashes in 5
    + directions). Dodge to evade it.
    
    2. Holy Cross: He'll throw a little golden cross that homes in on you. Guard
    until it ends.
    
    3. Pain wave: Once you've dealt around 2/3 of damage, he'll stick his cross in
    the ground and start creating waves that hurt you. Stay away from them.
    
     I think that's all of his attacks. The good thing is that he'll most of the
    time do attack [1]. Since he's slow, you can easily dodge him. When you've
    dealt a certain amount of damage, he'll stagger. Use Righteous Path to really
    hurt him. While the magic is going, combo him using Light attacks (I feel they
    take more health than Heavy attacks).
    
     That's it for this boss. Told ya! Easy peasy (sp?). ;)
    
    ==-------======-------====-=-====---=====---===========----====-=======---=====
    --=======------=======----=-=----===-----===-----------====----=-------===-----
    
       ~-~  BOSS: FRANCESCO  ~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~
    
    Strategy: Wow, it's been a while since the last boss, hasn't it? Anyway, he
    isn't that hard. The only problem is that you can fall and die. Yep, you can
    fall. Anyway, here are his attacks:
    
    1. Projectile Sword: He'll throw his sword at you (looks like a red sword). If
    you don't jump, evade it (press L + R) to have it stuck to the ground.
    
    2. Combo attack: Like most enemies, get to close to him and he'll start
    slashing around. Just stay away from him.
    
    3. Wave: He sticks his sword in the ground, creating a shockwave that hurts
    you. Jump or stay away.
    
    4. Summon: Once he has less than half the health bar, he starts summoning
    Damned Captains, which will keep respawn. Keep them at bay with your Holy
    Cross.
    
     His shield will lower the damage dealt to him a lot, so you need to take care
    of it first. Wait for him to do attack [1] and if the sword is stuck on the
    ground, go to it and press R to throw it back at him. Do this twice to break
    his shield. Once you do this, use Righteous Path take a huge chunk of health (I
    figured this out at the end of the battle =P).
    
     If you're out of Mana, the single best thing to do is to jump and use Divine
    Tempest, which launches Francesco into the air, so you can combo him up there.
    His shield respawns, so break it again and follow your attacks. Use the
    Finisher at the end to end the fight.

    --=======------=======----=-=----===-----===-----------====----=-------===-----
    
       ~-~  BOSS: LUCIFER  ~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~
    
    Strategy: Yay, finally the last boss of the game. Luckily enough for the PSP
    users, this only has 2 stages, instead of the 3 battle stages he has in the
    PS3/360 versions. To tell you the truth, he's a bit disappointing. Being the

    green and purple souls. Keep avoiding the shockwaves and combos and use your
    Cross most of the fight. After he finishes his combo, most of the time he
    teleports to another part and starts using shockwaves. Attack him before he

    01. In an opening after the first climbable wall just before the bridge.
