No, You Haven't Played Hellraid Before, Regardless of How Familiar It All Looks | Hardcore Gamer

HG: Going into E3 this year, Hellraid was one of the games I was most required to write about. That is unfortunately as passionate about as I could force myself to get heading into it, and not just because the title is so generic I had to do a quick Google search to make sure I hadn't actually played the game before. The little I had seen prior to E3 left me with a very "meh" sort of feeling and the impression I had seen dozens of games just like this before. And after E3 I...well, I still have the impression I've seen dozens of games just like this before.

So what other game is like Hellraid? Because I've really been wanting to play something like this co-op for years now. I can't think of any in the last decade. Seriously anyone know of first person Diablo type game like this? I can't figure out what this is suppose to be familiar to. I guess the closest thing I can think of is Hexen, but that didn't have co-op or loot. Dozens my ass!

It just looks so generic. Even the name seems like some random Steam sale game.

It's supposed to be similar to Dead Island afaik. So far everything I've seen of it looks like Dead Island with a medieval skin. It's being made by the same people if I'm not mistaken, and features a lot of the same mechanics.

For example, the combat (minus new things like shields) is straight out of Dead Island, as well as the enemies.
Instead of zombie vacationers now it's zombie prisoners. Infected became skeletons, the Ram became the Ram Demon, etc.
