This is a great title for the Xbox 360 and the Playstation 3 but I would recommend that this game be played online mainly because it offers the best experience. I have enjoyed several long hours of killing and looting with my friend on Xbox Live.

Normally, I am not a fan of hack-and-slashers, but Diablo 3 impressed me, to say the least.
My family doesn't play online because we have limited data, but playing with 4 players on the same screen is easy.
It's set up to appease everyone, although they should have made it possible for one character to pop up a tiny menu to view their inventory and change skills rather than having the rest of the team wait for the other characters to get done in the menu to continue fighting.
Playing solo is fun and equiping new gear is easy in the beginning, and somewhat challenging when gearing up after level 60.
The only problem I have found with solo play is that if you equip your follower with better gear, then join someone else's game, your follower is left behind in nirvana somewhere and a new one is created when you continue your own game, in turn, losing all your follower's gear.
I'm sure there is a patch to fix this, as I have not reviewed any other online forums regarding Diablo 3.
I have recommended this game to other family friends with kids and they can all enjoy it.
My wife and I rarely played video games in the past, then we got an Xbox for the kids, and we've been playing Diablo together as much as the kids.
This is my favorite video game of all time, other than World of Warcraft, because the customability of your characters is great.
