The once-great city lies in ruins. A massive gash in the fabric of our reality roils against the horizon as it blends into a permanently darkened sky. The world as we know it has come to an end. Demons, the visions of our nightmares, walk the Earth. Mankind, driven in retreat to the sanctuary of the Underground, struggles to survive the Hellish apocalypse.
Among the survivors are those who foresaw the coming of the darkness, those who see it as an opportunity to improve the standing of man, and those who seek revenge for what was lost. All are now banding together in the shadows, arming themselves with futuristic weapons and arcane spells designed for one purpose -- to battle the demonic hordes and take back their world.read more
Reviews for Hellgate: London: Exodus: Hellgate: London
I'm like the game, and am going to get the collectibles, so I thought I'd add the book to my collection.Yeah, a book of a video game. I wasn't actually expecting much, so I wasn't disappointed.Another reviewer has already covered some of the deficiencies in description, and writing style, with which I agree holeheartedly. What really bugged me - enough to break suspension of disbelief - were the patterns of typos.Often, 'and' became 'arid' and 'bad' -> 'had'. It happened often enough that I began to suspect that they were OCR artifacts, as if the manuscript had been scanned for printing.Those aside, it wasn't as bad as I had been expecting. A good choice was made to set the book well away from the actual game - it avoided the obvious problems when your gameplay would break the plot of the novel.Of course, you know you're hard core when your game character takes down a demon that causes such trouble to a seasoned Templar at the very start.read more
