This game is a parody of its clones....

Diablo 3 is not a BAD game by itself, but then again it isn't quite "Diablo good".. The thing is, that the other Diablo games are quite a bit deeper in letting the player decide on how to develop their character.. This game has been stream lined to the point to where it doesn't even live up to the status of a diablo clone, as most diablo clones allow deeper customizations on character development... What makes a Diablo game so good is the fact that you could have two people of the same class and yet they could be two completely different characters.. In this game there is no distinction in your character development beyond what moves you set as active, and what equipment you carry.. Is this game a complete failure? NO, it isn't.. THIS game is nothing like that piece of garbage on the PC that goes by the same name! NO ERROR 37 or mandatory real money auction house, since it has complete OFFLINE mode! But The Classes are still somewhat shallow like I said before since AP has been done away with, and the abilities are unlocked, and the classes are stuck to their respective proficiencies when it comes to weapons.. So, with no unconventional character builds, the game comes up Woefully short to being a true successor of the series, and there is likely going to be a more "complete" version (or game of the year version) that is likely to be released at a later date.. Either wait for the more complete version, or wait for the price to drop which is what I am going to do... As of this writing Borderlands 2 game of the year edition was recently released, which verifies my point... Keep on waiting as this game will be worth the wait! Or at least, Try Before You Buy!

The game is over rated.

I noticed a lot of rated 10 reviews. However, when I played it, I quickly became bored after my character Monk turned to level 20.

For three reasons, the layout maps are repetative. To win the matches, all I had to do was press the"X" buttons ferviously. There were no subtitles whenever I pick up the diary books especially important for international people whose English is their secondary language, and Deaf people. I wonder if the diary books are the same as the Mission quests?

On the good side, the graphic and the sound are beautifully executed. The story line is quite interesting.

I would reccomend for hard core players to change the game level from normal to expert.
