The sequel to a genre-defining game twelve years in the making was always going to carry with it a weight of expectation, and as such it's difficult to judge it in it's own right. Do you ignore the history that made the series the go-to name in action RPGs? Try as you might, that's difficult to do. Similarly, do you gloss over the troubled launch of Blizzards latest flagship title and it's controversial DRM constraints, focusing instead solely on the game? Again, that's easier said than done.
So I won't try to do either. What I'm reviewing here is Diablo III; with all of it's baggage, weight of expectation and controversy. All of its polish, balance and finesse. Diablo III, warts and all. "
