Summary: Deleting all of the negative reviews will not save this game. The setting is boring, the game play is ok. I wonder if they managed to fix all of the bugs. But i don't care to find out as i stopped playing it after lvl 20 as every single map looks the same and the game kept randomly crashing.
Summary: Submitted Aug. 20/ 08 - First off I'm a huge fan of the Blizzard universe - especially Diablo II.. Hellgate London is another Action RPG from the makers of Diablo. The best part of this game was the looting system and the resulting fabulous items, which was the same as Diablo II's.
Summary: Just to give potential buyer's a head's up, Flagship Studios gave pink slips to its entire development team and this game is now in a state of flux. The servers are still up as of 16 Jul 08, but continuing content updates are now unknown.
Summary: I really wanted to like this game. I honestly did. I like FPS games and Diablo II is my favorite game of all time. Surely any integration of the two would be gold, right? No dice... The missions are repetitive. You think they might get better later in the game but it doesn't happen.
Summary: I wish I could tell you just how much I loved playing Diablo. The gameplay was fresh, addictive and entertaining, while the setting was made even more enthralling by the graphics which were, at the time, gorgeous. It was simple, it was easy and it was very accessible.
Summary: If you're in Australia don't even bother unless you like repetitive single player games. No local server, no LAN support. This game had so much hype and they jsut didnt provide... I was prepared to look past the 5-7 year old graphics and repetitive game play for some good multiplayer, but a ping of...

Summary: I was very optimistic that the Diablo guys would make a great game. Oh well. I got this game on release day. I have patch .5 PROS: Lots of items Lots of item upgrades available Lots of character combos Some awesome weapon functions Great audio Great idea CONS: It's unfinished, and rushed to release.
Summary: This game isn't done - it was clearly pushed out the door before it was ready. I had really high hopes for this one, it's got a heck of a pedigree but the developers don't seem to have taken into account how games have evolved since Diablo.
Fun but UNFINISHED game. MARRED by bugs and poor Customer Service.

Summary: First of all let me say this is a fun game. If you liked Diablo 2 you'll love how this game plays and feels. I got this the day it came out and I've played every day pretty much since then. Pros: - Unique apocalyptic future setting but with demons (not too many games like that) - Very fun.
