Lives up to expectations is prolly the best comment possible. Mighty high expectations to live up to

jmobley3174d ago

aside from that midnight hour I couldn't play it the game rules.

Kanzes3174d ago

True. The game is amazing..!!

reznik_zerosum3173d ago

dont forget to spam random stuff how this game suck,and hate it cause its popular

SilentNegotiator3173d ago

Or actual stuff, like how hard they dumbed it down.

Bobby Kotex3173d ago

Don't forget the console fanboys who just need to talk trash about anything PC exclusive.

Christopher3173d ago

So far, for me, the game hasn't lived up to any of my expectations as far as gameplay. I believe many of the design choices are a big step backwards.

Trenta273173d ago

Thank you! Someone actually agrees with me. I think the game just got on the hype train. I honestly had a much better time playing Torchlight then I have D3.

sticky doja3173d ago

@Trenta27: I never played the previous Diablo games but I can say I enjoy Diablo 3 alot more than I did Torchlight although I did like Torchlight alot.

morganfell3173d ago

I have to agree as well. The dumbing down and the removal of so many choices available in Diablo II has really crushed my expectations as well. The skill point coices and attribute choices made your 2.0 characters unique.

But there is hope. I have been having a blast in the closed beta of Diablo 3.5:

Best $15 I have spent in a long long time.

Enjoying the game, but I don't like the skill progression. Not really much choice aside from selecting the runes. Where are all the other reviews by the way. The game is out for a day now and there are no reviews??

Christopher3173d ago

Skill progression and your attribute score increases are determined for you. Though, with the way they do attributes now, all that matters are your primary attribute and Vitality. I also hate only being able to hotkey 6 abilities total, 2 attacks and 4 'utility'. I much prefer Diablo 1 & 2, where you could not only choose what skills you wanted to learn, but also put points into them to level up the ones you wanted to focus on over others.

BushLitter3173d ago (Edited 3173d ago )

Exactly - your progression through the game in terms of skills is preset. Skills unlock at set levels and its just a matter of determining which skill suits your play-style. Unless I've missed something, most of the skills don't even show you how much damage you doing. And weapons that you pick up can't be used (when playing as a wizard) unless you've run out of Arcane power. Not too impressed. I would say 'more of the same' but it really feels like less.

Still, I'd be lying if I said I wasn't having fun anyway

"I also hate only being able to hotkey 6 abilities total, 2 attacks and 4 'utility'."

Go to settings, turn on elective mode. It removes the preset categories. It sucks that it isn't on as default.

Alexious3173d ago

95 is way too high, I'm leaning to 85 as of now. It's fun and a great game overall, but a step back compared to Diablo 2 in some regards not to mention the current absence of PvP modes.

jmobley3173d ago

I don't think 9.5 is too high. I am really enjoying the game. Everyone has a right to their opinion and I respect that, but I didn't give the game a 9.5 just cause. I genuinely love it.

caboose323173d ago

Yea, I think that the launch issues are clouding peoples judgments of the game right now. When the game is working, I would easily give it a 9.5 because I always want more. It's so damn addictive, and one of the best co-op games I have played in a while.

pr0digyZA3173d ago

I really love it, addicting as hell. And some good fun which is what matters to me. Although I must admit I didn't experience any of the problems that many others seemed to experience which probably helped me enjoy it more.
