Hellgate: London at 1up [ Game -> Preview ]

More info on Game: Hellgate: London

1Up has previewed Hellgate: London, and have some reservations:

OK, so we're a little fixated on the near-total lack of a third-person view (it does switch up during melee combat), but it implies a somewhat deficient generosity of spirit. Gamers enjoy seeing their developing characters kick ass--or at least they like the choice of whether they get to see that--and if success in the game is going to boil down to dice rolling instead of twitch skills, why not let gamers see something more than their guns' brilliantly colored light beams smack a demon down during that dice roll? Vampire: The Masquerade—Bloodlines made it work (more or less), and that game did depend on twitch skills for success.

They have a point, I think, but as I've said before, collecting uberloot in a singleplayer game kind of seems a bit stale after playing a MMORPG.
