Excellent

Fun but repetitive. Would still recommend

The main game is fun. It has some material to it and it's a game that requires you to pay attention. The dynamic difficulty is nice for all gamers (if you want a challenge, if you want to speed run, etc.). However the maximum level requires you to do 4 playthroughs currently. THIS MIGHT CHANGE FOR CONSOLE AS IT ALREADY HAS ON PC. If you are looking to buy the game, it'd consider investigating weather the PC update 2.0 will be coming to console. If it is, then you might want to go for whatever you're comfortable with. If your computer can run it, try the demo from Blizzard, and then decide. Either way, the story is fun and exciting as you run through it. And with collectable Lore Books and an extensive list of in game achievements, you'll likely to never run out of things to do.

Very Good

Not For Me, But A Solid Game

I liked the first two Diablos but apparently my taste has changed since Diablo 2.

So, personally, I got bored, but I will attempt to review this without bias.

First off, Blizzard did an excellent job mapping the controls to console. All of the abilities work very well with the 360 controller. Each character has an auto attack (A) and a main ability (RT) along with (B) (X) (Y) and (RB) for crowed control, maneuvering, AOE etc abilities. The left trigger locks onto targets and once a target is dead it auto switches to the next target. RB is for potion healing which causes for accidental use if you panic and button mash which is a costly mistake if you're playing on a high difficulty.

Each character has multiple ability build options. Each button has 5 choices along with 5 additional runes to choose from to power up those abilities. You can also choose 2 passives (like League of Legends) to aid you.

There is massive amounts of loot and the rare items aren't very rare. Accumulating gold and items to sell doesn't take much time at all.

The difficulty settings are dramatic. Easy is a breeze, normal.. normal and hard is challenging and requires caution, and the other 10 (or so) extra difficulties are just insane. There is also a hardcore mode which is like old school Nintendo games where, if you die, its game over and that's it.

The frame rate is great, the graphics are pretty good, but I noticed times sound would cut off for 1-2 seconds every 10 minutes which was odd. They reused sound effects from the older Diablos, which I thought was awesome. The sound of potions dropping, getting healed and Deckards voice brought back memories.

There are cutscenes but the story is mostly in game, like Borderlands, which I loved.

All and all my biggest suggestion is, if you love Diablo, don't rent this, buy it, as it will take months to do everything the game has to offer.

PS: the Demon Hunter is ridiculously OP

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.
