It's ike the first one but they fixed all the stuff that was annoying like the linear and repetitive quests, the infinite enchants on gear, the useless fishing and many other things that anyone can figure out. More customization options for the character and pets. Interesting classes that are better than the old Warrior, Mage and Archer that we see in every game. Very nice graphics and doesn't take a monster computer to run. It's basically Diablo 3 but with better gameplay and half the cost price. I recommend this game to everyone who likes action rpgs.

Then this is a nice little game to hold you over. This game is very much in the image of Diablo 2. That being said, it is only $20 so you'll need to temper your expectations a bit. The classes are decently diverse, but slightly unbalanced. The difficulty levels provide a lot of options as far as how you want the game to go. Gear is diverse, and the ability to add some enchantments is fun. And replayability is high. Another reviewer made the comment of the game being over after beating it once. This isn't the case. You can play the whole game through again basically in Nightmare mode, as well as having access to the mapworks generating random dungeons.
You get what you want here, you assign stats, you have to build your character, no constant rebuilding mid game, good amount of monsters, VERY smooth combat, and nice scenery. No micro-transaction pay to win garbage like most games coming out nowadays.
Negatives include, the game being pretty short. If you play on casual or normal you'll finish it in a day maybe 2. The classes are pretty unbalanced, Embermage is a savage, Engineer is fairly weak. There are also a couple features they took away from the first one that I liked. Having the random dungeons feature throughout the game was nice in the first one. And also enchanting is severely limited in this game compared to the first one.
Overall this game is WAY more worth the money then Diablo 3, and with the modding capabilities that are being added to it user content will probably add a lot of fun to a very cheap and awesome game.
Also if you're looking for another REALLY good Diablo Clone, checkout Titans Quest. It's not as creative as this game, but has much cooler class structures.

Imagine my total disappointment when I played this game with a friend after nagging him to download it only to be completely finished with the main storyline of the game in less than 3 days of playing! Very extremely disappointed and although it was fun playing, it was like getting a taste and then having it taken away.
I wouldn't have spent 10 dollars on this had I known it was like that let alone 20 dollars. I won't be getting any more updates to this game again after this major disappointment.
Pros: Game is very cute, wonderful game play and graphics are very pleasing and definitely nicer than the last one which I also though were pretty good.
Cons: No where near enough game time and whoever thought that creating the maps as the end game situation needs to have their head examined. You took away the whole purpose of the game and gave us nothing but a grind setup. No more storyline after you hit not even level 55, spend money on maps and that's it. Oh and don't forget that if you run out of money you can't even buy maps, you literally have to create a new character to earn some money so you can give it to your other character to buy maps with (can't even send money to them only items in the shared box so don't sell anything you get with that character either). Very bad setup.
