My girlfriend bought this for me since my birthday is next week and all I have to say is wow. I love it. I played the demo on the PC but couldn't afford it at the time but once I heard they were porting it, I got super excited.
It's better on the console than it was on the PC for sure. It controls so much better. You have full range of movement for your character outside of the point and click on the PC. Not to mention they included the dodge roll for the right thumbstick.
The combat is very fun and very rewarding. My Witch Doctor can lay to waste to hordes and hordes of minions and high level enemies with ease and I LOVE it.
The story picks up a 30 years after the events of Diablo 2 and you see that the world isn't as safe as you thought it was when you last left. The cut scenes are jaw dropping. The sound effects fit everything perfectly. From the sounds of your enemies to your character spells and buffs, it sounds perfect.
Trust me, pick it up. Go buy it. You wont be upset.
I enjoyed playing this game but come on blizzard, your using graphics that look like their from the first one for the PC? And there is no character customization at all. It would be nice to be able to have at least a few options to how your character looks.
The system of the game is somewhat familiar, with the weapons and spell screens and the characters are the ones that move the action from place to place. Diablo 3 is a very big game. You play as a woman, I chose to be a witch doctor and you are very bent on freeing the various towns and peoples from angry hordes of creatures.
In time you gain powers, and have many choices as to how you want to wield your powers.
I found that I was powerful enough to deal with any threat after beating the Butcher, who was the hardest one of the ‘Bosses’ to fell. The story is a tad simple and is used to motivate and move the game along, but you’ll find yourself involved in the game.
