Well worth the wait.
We all have the right to our own opinion, but a 9.5 seems kinda high for this game. Its still a really good game though.
Seems pretty spot-on to me. Different strokes, I guess.
If the game didn't have DRM issues and horrible lag I would say its a 9-9.5 but right now for me at least the random lag drops it into the 8s.
I wouldn't give it anything more than an 8. This was not worth the 12 year wait in my opinion.
you only waited 10 years da_2pacalypse, and even at that, you didnt even know about Diablo 6 out of those 10 years.
60 hours in right now, easily a 9.5 game.
60 hours in a week, GOOD LAWD!!! I could never play a single game that much, so quickly. 60 hours might take me a month or so depending on how much I like a game, but a week, goodness!!
Lol! I know it's crazy, damn blizzard games are always overly addicting. They lace their games with e-crack.
I played a lot and its a fun game but its not a 9.5. On a realistic scale where not all games get 10. this game is probably worth a 7.5 in my opinion.
IGN is a sell-out.
and your opinion doesn't matter, welcome to the internet. jk, I'm curious as to why you think that, Diablo is a good game.
Diablo may be a good game Rainbow, but a good game will never satisfy a fat boys need to be rebellious.
At least they waited a bit before publishing their review to get a good idea on the game rather than trying to gain hits by being the first (like they usually do)
They usually tend to play games a decent amount. It's just that most games have an early review copy, so they usually get to play for around a week and then write a review close to the launch date. I don't think Blizzard gives out any review copies, so that could be one reason why they had to wait a week to make a review. ... besides, I doubt there's many people that were going to buy Diablo3 based on its reviews anyways. =p
No review sites got to play the game any quicker than the general public. IGN was writing a daily "Review in Progress" blog as they were playing and gathering information for their final review. When they felt they had sufficient playtime and information they finished up their review.
Right. Which is good. A lot of sites have been posting reviews much earlier than this. I guess my point is - it's a really good game. Stop whining.
8/10 for me, i love it to death but it's far from perfect.
Hmmm... I can't brush off their every right to give this game a high score, but I don't think this game deserves a 9.5. The highest score I could give it is 7. One big minus is the always online DRM. The story is also very predictable. Edit: And this is coming from a Diablo 2 enthusiast.
I suppose if the online DRM is having an impact then you would have a different view of the game. I however have had no real issues, whenever I log on it seems to be fine so I would agree with them on the score.
Well worth the wait...It`s diablo 2 hd. And it`s still worth the wait...
HAHAHAHAHAHA 9.5? yet again another big name company gets free pass in game media, that has tones of game related issues, if this game was low name developer it would have been ripped apart in reviews for all the trouble they are having with hacked accounts server lag disconnections errors auction house not delivering items list goes on good journalism ign ...pfft
I haven't encountered any of those issues (sever downtime due to maintenance aside), so if I was reviewing the game I'd give it a good score too. No one can deny it's been a shaky launch, but this is a game that people will be playing for years and years. All these issues will eventually be made extinct, so I'm able to tolerate them for now because I know they aren't representative of the long term experience I'm going to have with the game.
They give this a 9.5 and Dragon's Dogma gets a 7.5, yeeeaaa ok.
Seems like the reviewer really loved the game, so 9.5 sounds fair, and the review is fairly objective. My score would be maybe 8.5.
some1 got a check. Any other dev/publishers game d get slaughtered for technical problems, diablo has. But whatever
I can't think of any other score, its certainly awesome and better than anything else that's come out for a good while. But it's not a perfect 10.
and lets let the console only players troll. The ones who haven't played the game but think it's worth a 7/10.
That's exactly what is going on. Console only gamers don't have a clue! They just listen to the vocal minority and run with it. I hope they are carrying scissors.
No randomly generated levels...i give Diablo III a 8/10.
I actually hate randomly generated levels, for me it just feels like filler that the devs never intended for me to play. I know that sounds kinda dumb but its just something I never could get over lol. Oh DIII is a 9/10 for me :)
IGN do not know which arse they talking though currently. Look at Witcher 2 Assassins of Kings 9.0/10.0 that game is god damn awesome and makes Diablo 3 look shit, yet they still give Diablo 3 a 9.5/10.0, think they getting paid to write there reviews and just can not be arsed to be honest. Diablo 3 has a load of flaws which they do not even mention
