IGN reviews Hellgate: London - See you in Hell... gate

At the end of the day Hellgate: London delivers an experience that is fun for a few hours but quickly grows repetitive. The stat-driven combat takes the player one step away from the action and the modular levels and peripheral nature of the story keeps players from investing in the world. Balanced against that are levels that are virtually teeming with enemies and a loot and upgrade system that gives you a real sense of progress every minute that you play. Your own enjoyment of Hellgate will naturally depend on your tolerance for the repetitious levels and your overall desire to find the perfect combination of skills and items that will allow you to take on the toughest of the game's challenges with ease.

Overall score: 6.8/10

The story is too old to be commented.

They should have axed the MMO parts and instead, should have focused on the singleplayer aspect and a fun little co-op mode or something instead of the MMO looking stuff.

While I liked the game I think there was way to much MMO influence over the Diablo one that every one was looking for, and there are small annoying things that should have been fixed before release and are actually a step back from the Diablo 2 formula and are annoying a HELL lot of people in the forums for example selling items should be fast like every other game like this (Left mouse click) but instead it is plagues with menus

I just hope future patches will address the issues

I think they should have looked at what Iron Lore did with Titan Quest they took the Diablo 2 formula and evolved it to the next level (incredible 3D graphics, more complex abilities ect.) and NOT force a new formula (MMOs in this case) into another (Diablo 2) and result with neither being fully developed

Superb comment and points. Bubbles for you.

They should have focused on making a true addicting game like Diablo.

They weaved that special crack magic into it for about 10 hours for me, after that I got tired of seeing the same stuff and the grindage.
