Ah yes, since the game has been released for purchase I can talk about it. Today’s PC Review is about Hellgate London. And the easiest way I can describe Hellgate London? Diablo 2 in 1st/3rd person and a sci fi setting. Thats is literally what the game is. If you have played Diablo 2 I almost guarentee the game will seem similar. Amazingly similar.
Graphically, the game is a tad…bland. Everything at least to me, looked exactly the same. After going to the overworld twice and realizing I could have been a block away from where I was before, just sorta made me go blah. And then the maintenince tunnels that they use for everything. Wooo hoo another maintenience tunnel! Go me! And dont forget your subway tunnels! Lots of those!
Beyond that, the game is decent. Gameplay is easy to get used to, is very MMO ish, and each class has its own strengths. I picked the Engineer, and had a blast as I shot rockets and had a robot fire rockets thus making every pack of enemies just sorta keel over. But, truth be told, the game play and story and even the setting were…forgetable.
I give Hellgate London a 2/5
