Hellgate London - Playable Demo


Total votes: 1

From Flagship Studios - creators of the award-winning Diablo® series and the fathers of the action role playing genre - comes HellGate: London, the next benchmark in the evolution of the RPG genre.

Combining the depth of traditional RPGs with the frenetic, visceral feel of first-person shooters, HellGate: London offers infinite replayability with dynamically created levels, monsters, items and events that gives each player their own unique hack-and-slash experience.

A post-apocalyptic London has been overrun by hordes of terrifying demons, leaving the city desolate and scorched by hellfire. Those who were unlucky enough to survive now gather in the only sanctuary left, the Underground, banding together in order to gain a foothold against the minions of darkness and ultimately save the bloodline of humanity.

It is no surprise that these sole survivors come from three of society's most elite factions, each of whom are masters of a robust number of skills and weapons essential to demon-thrashing.

The Templar, a secret society preserving the rites of the original Knights Templar, mix futuristic technology with ancient artifacts to create powerful weapons and armor perfect for short-ranged and melee attacks.

The Cabalists are students of the dark arts and edges of science which often leaves them standing right on the line between good and evil. Their mystifying spells make them suited for mid-range combat.

The Hunters are mysterious, highly trained ex-military operatives who lay waste to their foes with hyper-advanced weapons that blend theoretical science and the latest in technology - and their bullets can come from almost any distance.

HellGate: London delivers an amazing gaming experience to PC gamers of all types - delivering the eye-popping DX10 visuals demanded by the hardcore, and scaling to ensure the masses of casual RPG players can still get the best performance on older PCs.

I bet even games from Afghanistan would be better than this crap. I mean, the maps are so creative that they're made from something like 4-5 prefab chunks and a dozen textures. I'm not even going into describing how awesome sfx and physics are in this game.

Ok, why don't you all take a step back and look at the fact this is just a demo, there will be bugs, there will be animation glitches and thats probably the same reason DX10 isn't accessible yet. If you bothered to find out the game supports DX10 and uses the havoc physics engine the same as most modern FPS. Those of you who decided to uninstall before actually finding out what it was like was well...your loss. The game isn't a FPS btw, its an Action RPG. They have effectively taken Diablo II and given it one hell of a makeover. So if you don't like Diablo don't buy it...but stop whinging about glitches in a demo when the game is still not released.

well really they can moan and you cant say because its a demo its ok that it is shoddy because thats not true. The demo is meant to be an example of the final product to give you a feel of what it is like before you buy it... so it shouldnt be full of bugs and dun to play... its that simple...personally i didnt find it s**t but i didnt find it good, i got bored after my first level up, same old hack and slash, cant even weild two swords, what a joke...

Not only they steal the character devolopment from diablo2... they steal the textures from old 90 FPS game to, well i was kind of happy when they show all the cool things you could do with this game, and those screenshots omg best ever for the time. But one dissepointent after another (some part will cost when u play online), and when i got the demo i was werry upset and sad bcus they have all the time in the world and they did this piece of chitt!!! where did it go wrong? i mean, all the hype for nothing? this is the worst game dissepointement of all time after diekatana. and for those who protecting this game and saying its only a demo, i feel sorry for you. cus you should now bether that thay have chitt long time to do a nice game butt they blow it and made an medioker lame ass RPG that isent any special. btw you should not really try hunter first bcus then u will be dissepointed as i am, go to hell with this game.(sorry for some misspell in the text).

Its based off Diablo 2, its the same developers! its not stolen, its their own game type being redone. And yes demo's are always glitchy, if it was a finished product why wouldn't they just release it now...because they are ironing out all the bugs. If any of you knew anything about software development you'd understand this!

Lock a bunch of blizzard nerds in a white room for year and this is the sort of crap you get.Blizzard and everything affiliated with it needs to die, so real gamers can move on!!(They didn't revolutionize anything, their just a c*m stain on the wall waiting to be wiped.)

Yeah, game is terribly disappointing. I tried really hard to find even one positive thing about it and no, I did not succeed. Every single aspect was done in the worst possible way and I would not lie if I said I have not seen such a terrible game in a while. And yes, graphics aren't good either, even maxed out at 1680x1050. The quest dialogs and text made for consoles looked very 90's with low res monitors.

people who say it's 'awesome' haven't played many games in their lives. this game sucks big time in every aspect. my feeling about it is that it looks, plays and smells like a low budget game from Afghanistan. go to hell with this piece of crap.
