Nothing but a button masher pretending to be an RPG. Not terrible, but nothing surprising. You run around, hit the attack button till all the bad guys are gone, pick up some gold, then move on. Looks pretty nice, and it is smooth. Good way to waste a couple of hours, but doesn't pull you in to the story.
Not a fan of this on PS3 due to graphics but it will be on PS4 soon so I can wait! Even will par graphics, I could not stop playing this game even after beating it. I love the new gameplay mechanics they changed in it for the console!
I have to say that I'm on the fence as to whether this is the conclusion I wanted. Nearly 15 years ago I set off to the depths of a church in the town of Tristrim. Much was unknown other than the church was releasing monsters of horrific abominations. I battled my way through the dungeons mobs of evil only to come face to face with one of the prime evils in Diablo. After defeating him and trying to contain his evil within a soul stone I realized that i would have to contain him with myself.
Emerging from the catacombs of the place where the devil lives. I was greeted as a hero to what remained of the townsfolk. However, I blacked out only to find myself wondering to the west. Always compelled to the west I set out. Never turning back. From town to town I wondered. Screams of torment and agony clawing at my skull and my soul. I felt as though I was losing myself to the evil within. The further I traveled the more I felt myself slipping away. The more I slipped away the more I lost track of where I was and what I was doing. Till finally my journey ended with Diablo destroying me and reuniting with the Prime Evils of Mephisto and Baal.
The story continues as heros in my wake eventually caught up with Diablo and Mephisto defeating them and thus believing that all is well.
Of course not all is well. Reuniting with this title was more personal than rewarding. I mean the graphics were great, voice casting was good. Seeing Tyrael was just jaw dropping. The story was well balanced and co op was decent. The conclusion was epic and in Blizzard fashion cut scenes were amazing. However, I kind of got bored mid way through cause it is a dungeon crawl and combat does get linear. Skills are cool, co op breathes some life into it once it gets old goin solo. Loot in large amounts and large maps. Good game rent it, judge it, go from there. Thanks for your time. Game on!
