For what has been available as an entertaining RPG for the XBOX 360 has been rare to none. To have a game of this caliber during a time of slow production is astounding. I am extremely impressed with overrall quality. Very happy and am looking forward for the dlc; I know there is still quality to come.

After all the hype and all the advertisements, this game was VERY ordinary. The good parts were the graphics and story. Very engaging storyline, I especially liked the voice actors. Normally, the actors seem overdone and forcing it, these characters (especially the scoundrel) were just as they should be. And of course blah blah graphics were good.

The bad parts weren't that the game was bad, but more that they weren't anything special. Regular attacks, a heal, aoe, special, 3 passives. I'm not saying they had to have a talent tree system, but the character abilities seemed almost futile. I played more than one character and they all just seemed so generic. Each hero barely seems different from the next. The boss fights are nothing to write home about either. The last boss has like... 3 abilities? Even on hard, they don't hurt. You can just stack lifesteal and sit next to them holding the A button down.

During my first run through, I kept saying I hope this is the part where the game gets exciting, finally. Then I was at the last boss.

I would rather play Dungeon Siege III or Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning than this, if I wanted this style of game. Thanks for reading.

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.
