Diablo 3 is a disappointment, didn’t meet any expectations

Diablo 2 has been released 12 years ago and Blizzard finally managed to launch the 3rd version of the game only two days ago. Diablo 3 has been one of the most awaited games in the world and it sold in millions, though many gamers realized that it wasn’t exactly what they expected.

The story is too old to be commented.

I've waited ten years for Diablo 3... now what?

happy birthday marius maria

ShinMaster2199d ago (Edited 2199d ago )

I find Diablo II superior. It was better for its time and after so many years, Diablo III is a disappointment.

Why do I have to log online to be able to play single-player?
I can't play single-player when their servers go down. This is BS.

And the trend for $60 PC games continue. Not so much cheaper than consoles anymore...

ilikecookies2199d ago

This is a very poorly written article....disregard this trash how did this even get approved.

Trebius2199d ago

IM a huge Diablo fan, loved every second of Diablo 1 and Diablo 2. Diablo 3 is definitely Meh...i was going to buy it bur checked it out and decided against it. Disapponited yes, but theres a lot of other good games out no need to stress it.

Nimblest-Assassin2199d ago

Well this is my first Diablo and Im having a blast playing it... my friends who have played Diablo and Diablo 2 as well as the expansion packs are having a great time as well, and are teaching me the ropes...

I guess after 12 years of waiting... its really hard to live up to the hype people gave it...

Well, at least its not Duke Nukem Forever... right?

Bobby Kotex2199d ago

Well the other 98% of us love the game. It's funny how it's so fashionable to trash this game.

Spydiggity2199d ago (Edited 2199d ago )

Just because people's opinions differ from yours does not mean they are trying to be "fashionable" or that they are "trolling."

I was a HUGE diablo fan in the late 90s...diablo 2 was okay, but basically more of the same skill-less gameplay and constant returns to town to vendor loot and to swap out your current piece of +2.4% whatever for your new +2.45% whatever.

That formula...in 2012...uh..no thanks. i played it for 2 hours tuesday morning, and i have no desire to play it again. No matter though, Max Payne 3, contrarily, is one of the best games i've played this generation and is keeping me quite occupied.

FanboyPunisher2197d ago

Diablo 3 sucks, 30day refund if you bought it over battle.net.

I GOT MINE, and enjoy d3 more when i'm not playing it.

Yeah, I'm disappointing with D3 also. It's a solid game, but D2 is a much better RPG. D3 has been streamlined WAY too much. I think this has convinced me to purchase Torchlight 2 later this summer :/

Christopher2200d ago

Yeah. His example with the armor made no sense. If it only took 100-120 to wear all the armor and it wasn't intended, then freaking make it so that the armor has higher requirements, don't just take away the choice and then make it so that the majority of armor can be worn by anyone.

Diver2200d ago (Edited 2200d ago )

get path of exile. a friend of mine pointed it out and wowsa.

costs as little as 10 bucks to get into the closed beta. eye popping graphics and a skill tree you wont believe.

if someone wants to like d3 thas fine but saying it met all expectations is telling the world they never played d2.

kingdavid2199d ago

I played the beta of D3 and I even preferred Titan Quest to it.

synchroscheme2200d ago

Yeah, it's just more Diablo, which is not a bad thing but I certainly was not blown away.

@da_2pacalypse
Torchlight 2 does look very promising and I'm a bit more excited for that interestingly enough.

CarlosX3602200d ago

Maybe they're not looking to "blow you away." They're looking to satisfy your thirst for a new Diablo game.

Hayabusa 1172199d ago

@ Carlosx360

Why would they not want to blow you away? Shouldn't every game aim to blow the player in one way or another?

Bowzabub2199d ago (Edited 2199d ago )

This generation of gamers expectations are astronomical, not that this is a bad thing, but it's hard to please the unpleasable. I think game developers deserve a lot more credit than they are seldom given. I do like graphics and new concepts and the whole innovative shebang.. But me and the majority of the people that develop these 'flops' have been gaming since the days of Pong. Please don't misunderstand me and think that I don't desire innovation and greatness for the almighty dollar, euro, yen or whichever; but I think that gamers need to show more appreciation. Starting with the "journalist' / crybaby blogger. Talk is cheap. (edit) And I'm not just talking about this game. In fact I haven't even looked at this game.. I don't even game on PC. At least not since about 2005.
LoL..no rebuttals, just disagree. It's ok.. just let it burn. XD

memots2199d ago

Totally agree with you. I played some game that are supposedly bad .. you know those 6 out of 10 " Teh flop" and totally enjoyed. I am able to enjoy any form of gaming since the pong age ( literally i am 37 )

But with less free time and the amount of choice in gaming out there right now i find it hard to keep up and do want the most for my time spent playing a game. Right now i totally want to buy Diablo , Starhawk and RR Unbounded but i still can't put down Bf3 on my pc and cannot see how i could possibly find time to play any new games.

Gamer do not want crap but with that said the expectations are little off the chart right now. Calm down people and have some fun.

EditorAtGNG2199d ago

I am. I've been playing Diablo 2 for a decade and this new installment has surpassed it in every way: story, gameplay, design, presentation... it all wreaks of AAA quality.

I really hated their decision with the "always online" for a single player game (I am still having internet connection issues and lags) though the core of the experience is still indescribable.

Ravenor2199d ago

My girlfriend recently played through a portion of D2, she enjoyed it a lot. We then finally got to actually play D3 yesterday and she still enjoys it. The gameplay is more or less intact, the monk is also super satisfying to play. Whiners, are whiners.

Also, the Online only is definitely in part caused by how god AWFUL the D2 community was. D2 proved more then any other online game that people can never be trusted and that people will abuse anything that can be abused.

I'm enjoying it a lot, the connection issues need to be fixed pretty soon though.

alexdumitru2200d ago

Yeah, these are pretty big issues and I sometimes wait for half an hour to be able to log in.
