The game that gets previewed way too much, Hellgate: London, has been previewed at Gamespot. Here's a bit:
It certainly looks great, and a lot of stuff can happen on the screen
at once. First of all, the environments and character models all look
excellent, but then there are tons of particle and spell effects...not
to mention detailed lighting and shadowing. While you play the game
from the first-person perspective, which was chosen because it's far
more immersive than the traditional top-down view for role-playing
games, you'll also switch to a third-person perspective when you wield
a melee weapon, such as a magical sword or a cricket bat (which is an
homage to the recent British zombie romantic comedy Shaun of the Dead).
I'm hoping Bethesda aren't taking that attitude.
