Path of Exile - Preview @ Gamedynamo

Gamedynamo posted a short hands-on preview of Path of Exile.

Having played a demo with a few high level characters, Path of Exile is definitely something to behold once you get your mind around how deep yet accessible the skill gem system and skill trees are. The skill gems are used with almost any item in your inventory. The most novel use I saw was skill gems being used with a map to enhance the difficulty and awards of the bonus dungeon it's to travel to. It was also fun seeing just how switching skill gems on equipped inventory can drastically change the player's main attack. One character had a hammer that called down fireballs on the screen as he constantly called an AOE attack wherever he spun the hammer.
