I was going to buy this game until one of my friends advised me not to and I got Alone in the Dark instead (which I didn't like anyway), was it really that bad?

Eh, kinda like a 3D Diablo. Mindless hack and slash, randomly generated levels, etc. They added guns into it and an interesting FPS mode with them, but all in all I found the game a bit boring after a while. Multiplayer seemed rather dead so I never bothered with it.

I got it when it first came out. Great game at first, though auto-generation of levels was a waste of programming time. The multiplayer functionality was weak, and I feel bad for anyone who paid through the nose for a lifetime subscription.

It was one of those games that was almost amazing. Had they ignored the autogeneration, and instead focused a bit on less repetitive content and more online aspects it could have been great.

Does this mean that you just won't be able to play it at all now?

I believe you can still play single player, but coop was one of the few fun things that I'll miss. Online economy and pvp was quite weak anyhow, imo.
