Some of the creative team of the diablo series I believe had a hand in Hellgate London. Hellgate was a blast for a while but it can get repetitive real quick, beautiful game with stunning graphics and the combat is a blast. Unfortunately the game is quite repetitive however.
But I'm sure the REAL diablo 3 will have poor graphics(unlike hellgate) and the combat won't be nearly as much fun as hellgate. But thats not what the diablo series is about though. I might try diablo 3 just for the heck of it.
Do not be swayed by Hellgate London. Many diablo fans agree that was not their best work. You should definitely check it out. You can get the chest with Diablo 1, 2, and the expansion for relatively cheap. I would recommend just playing 2 though.
