Hellgate: London

maximum pc
23 January 2008
  • Summary: You’re forced to either run through the level like a madman, hoping to hell that the train of baddies behind you can’t kill you before you find your eight kills—or jump in and out of the instance in an attempt to reset the level’s enemies. It’s a wonderful moment when Hellgate rewards your progress by letting you sit back and stop playing the game.
  • Pros: It’s the closest you’re going to get to a first-person Diablo.
  • Cons: Poor inventory trading mechanism; server glitches force you to restart from your last save.

Hellgate: London Review (PC)

  • Conclusion: There's something very good at the core of Hellgate: London, even if it is rough around the edges. The game's combat really stands out, and a few romps through the single-player campaign using different classes could well be worth the price of admission. Unfortunately, the rest of Hellgate is harder to recommend. The environments are not particularly convincing, inventory space is annoyingly small, and portions of the game feel unfinished, or at least rushed.

  • Summary: On paper, Hellgate: London sounds like an unmitigated disaster: although it’s an RPG blended with the visceral action of a first-person shooter, the ranged weapons lack any punch, making it feel as if you’re detached from the action unless you’re hammering demons with a melee weapon; the randomly-generated worlds are made from similar building blocks, meaning that the locations soon become repetitive and fail to capture the grimy streets of London; the denizens of Hades...

  • Summary: The spiritual successor to Diablo hits us, but wait… it’s kind of a first person shooter.

Hellgate: London - Test

  • Conclusion: Spiele wie 'Hellgate: London' sind wahrlich die Hölle, wenn es um die Bewertung geht. Auf der Habenseite verbucht das Spiel ein an sich interessantes Setting und den in Summe dank massig Action sowie Sammel- und Leveltrieb spaßigen Multiplayer-Modus. Doch warum müssen die Levels so strunzlangweilig sein? Warum so wenig Abwechslung? Warum die ohnehin schon dünne Story so miserabel präsentiert?
  • Pros: gutes Monster-Design, gelungenes Upgrade-System, jede Menge effektreiche Action, abwechslungsreiche Charakterklassen, Sammeltrieb ist vorhanden, Suchtfaktoren kommen durchaus auf, spaßiger Multiplayer-Modus
  • Cons: ödes Singleplayer-Spiel, langweiliges Level-Design, einfallslose Quests, magere Story-Präsentation, kaum eigene Ideen, teilweise umständliches Interface, viele kleine Bugs im Multiplayer, unausgewogenes Balancing, hässliche Grafik

  • Excerpt: Produkcja Flagship Studios była ostatnią nadzieją graczy na otrzymanie następcy kultowego i genialnego Diablo . W końcu odpowiadał za nią sam Bill Roper wraz z częścią byłych pracowników Blizzarda . Pierwsze filmiki z gameplay'em nastawiały optymistyczne, a trailer potwierdził, że ludzie ci wiedzą, co robią. Wszyscy czekali na ostateczny efekt z jednej strony z nadzieją, z drugiej - obawą.

Trailer: Hellgate: London #3

  • Summary: Flagship Studios har i stor grad lykkes med det vanedannende grunngameplayet i Hellgate: London, men de har ikke vært like flinke til å få deg til å føle at det du gjør i spillet faktisk betyr noe. Timene i post-apokalyptiske London koker bort uten å gi deg spesielt mye tilbake. Spillet fungerer glimrende som tidsfordriv, men hvis du vil bruke den tiden du har her på jorden til noe som føles meningsfullt, vil jeg heller anbefale deg noe annet.

Hellgate London (PC)

  • Conclusion: Un titolo davvero particolare, questo HL. A fronte di una certa varietà di intenti, troviamo però un gameplay che ci porta dal Punto A al Punto B senza, per rimanere in tema, fermate intermedie. Certo, ci sono le sottoquest, e la possibilità di acquistare oggetti vari dai mercanti e di potenziare quelli in nostro possesso, ma si tratta di “requisiti minimi” indispensabili per un hack'n'slash votato all'RPG dei giorni nostri.
