    Missed opportunities wrapped up in a vaguely scary hellraiser-esque skin. Avoid it, unless you like frustration.

    Hellpoint tries to incorporate familiar concepts you've seen from more popular action titles such as the Souls series. Unfortunately, it also adds various ideas that turn it into a jumbled mess. Combined with cryptic presentation of information, confusing level layouts, clunky combat, and abysmally bad platforming mechanics, it's one game that you'll say "Oh, hell no" to.

The problem is that the game is half baked and nowhere near a full release. You can spend hours grinding only to have the super rare and limited resources/weapons you spent time on just disappear from your inventory leaving you high and dry. Watch out if you are a gun/magic user as a disappearing main gun will leave you without a way to defend yourself and you will have to restart. There are obvious technical issues which arent a big deal as those are easy to patch. Missing currency/materials/weapons with poor hitboxes on certain melee gear, piss poor fast travel (also involves disappearing items that makes it so you can in no way 100% the game) etc are why I give this game a 2. If these issues were fixed I would say a solid 8+ but unfortunately the ability to lure players into an unfinished game only to choke their progress really breaks the experience and is more frustrating than rewarding. Here's hoping the devs can fix the issues quickly because this is a true example of a diamond in the extreme, s**t covered, maggot infested rough. Full Review »
