MTV- Review: 'Diablo III' (Console) - All Hell Breaks Loose

MTV:Porting any game from the PC to a console is a one of the enduring challenges of the video game industry. However, when a series like "Diablo," which is so tied to PC gaming culture, makes the jump from mouse and keyboard to the controller it's is an even bigger task. "Diablo III," the latest incarnation in the franchise that helped to define dungeon crawlers, is making its first appearances on consoles, by gracing the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 (and eventually the PlayStation 4). In the past, "Diablo" has been less than successful at making an easy transition to consoles (the last attempt was 1998's so-so PlayStation port), so its reasonable that fans of the series may be weary of Blizzard's latest attempt. However, it seems like the team that worked the "Diablo III" port learned from the mistakes of others, and created a really enjoyable, controller-based version of the game. (Diablo III, PS3, Xbox 360) 9/10
