Excellent

Great long-awaited update to a great franchise

Let me start by saying that this isn't the type of game that you should start without being able to set some significant time aside. The reason I say this is because you will definitely become addicted to this game quickly - it is just that good. If you're a classic Diablo fan, then this game isn't going to disappoint - it even have some great throwback sound effects that you're going to recognize!

Story-wise, the game plays through well, and they have split things up pretty well. Additionally, the storyline is much more pronounced than in prior iterations of the series - which is mainly owed to some pretty stellar storyline cutaway movies (I call them movies because they're that good) with some good voice acting. Altogether, they have definitely mastered the art of ensuring of enthralling you in the story of the game.

Repeat playability is stellar, given that you can play through the game each time with a different class that you will completely alter how you approach enemies and completing missions. Although you may need to take some breaks into some other games just to stray away from some of the button-mashing that may get old in Diablo, you will quickly return to it just because of all of the other great aspects.

Overall, I'd highly recommend this game. Endless variations with magical weapons, armor, enemies, and many other things throughout the game. You definitely will not get bored with the selection!

I hope that you enjoy it!

Disappointing

WAY to easy, normal mode with a barbar was just simple hack and slash. This was a very linear almost button masher. There were a few good ol' blizzard funnies but the writing was quite lacking. The levels were far too smiler. Blizzard needs to omit this game and completely remake it. After years of WoW I KNOW you guys can do better.
