Diablo 3 review (Updated with patch 2.0.1)

GamesRadar
14 March 2014
  • Conclusion: Diablo 3's biggest problems have been solved, and though there are still some network kinks that need to be worked out, it's finally at the stage where I can recommend it wholeheartedly to any fan of the franchise.
  • Pros: Loot system is exciting, Strong presentation, Console version is a very strong port
  • Cons: You won't care an ounce about the story, Network issues persist, years after release, Grinding to defeat harder difficulties lacks the excitement of the quest to hit 99

  • Excerpt: Honestly, I wasn't sure what to think of Diablo III. Scratch that, actually I was pretty sure it was going to suck so hard I'd end up chaffed. The previews online didn't really impress, and the characters that were shown over about a two-year span were mainly the same old ones as before or just hacks (the witch doctor being an obvious copy of the necromancer, for example). Lots of pretty colors in a more World of Warcraft-styled look.

Diablo III Review

28 September 2012
  • Excerpt: Like many of the one-sided NPCs that appear within Blizzard’s third summer-vacation‑to‑Hell, it sure feels as if there’s something special lurking beneath Diablo III —once you get behind all the odd trappings and poor design decisions, that is. If you’re new to the series, the game goes something like this: See evil, click on evil, kill evil. Repeat 100,000 times. That’s Diablo. Diablo III beautifies this formula by combining artistic flair with rote gameplay.
  • Pros: Addictive gameplay, beautiful graphics, and challenging scenarios will keep you thinkin’ and clickin’ for a while.
  • Cons: Poor plot decisions

Diablo III Review

23 August 2012
  • Summary: Blizzard's long awaited Diablo III arrived with much fanfare. If you're a fan of action-RPG click-fests, then you owe it to yourself to pick it up. However, if you've played the previous Diablo games, keep your expectations in check and you'll enjoy the game. If you're not a fan, then Diablo III won't do much to make you one.
  • Pros: Polished gameplay, Great graphics, Immersive sound
  • Cons: Constant internet connection, Too easy the first time around, Best gear outside of the world of Diablo, in the Auction House

  • Conclusion: Diablo III is a bit of a disappointment. We would have liked to see more choices available for character development instead of the “use any skill at any time” gameplay mechanics that are in place. The story, which is constantly being referenced via quests and cut scenes, is average at best and clichéd at worst. Diablo III is not a bad game, though. The core gameplay, which revolves around hitting enemies until they drop items, is still a lot of fun.
  • Pros: The combat is fast paced and satisfying., The sound effects really hit the spot.
  • Cons: Diablo III ’s story falls flat., Every character will have the same skills at the end of the game – only items differentiate you from others.

Review: Diablo III (PC, Mac)

Gamer 2.0
10 June 2012
  • Conclusion: The presentation has the same level of quality that Blizzard games have come to be known for. The visuals are excellent, mixing together the game’s in-engine cutscenes with pre-rendered cinematic sequences. While this does work well as a whole, it’s easy to spot the difference in art style between the two mediums. The game itself has a stylized, animated look to it, while the cinematic scenes have a darker and more realistic look to them.

Review: SteelSeries Diablo III Gaming Mouse And Headset.

  • Conclusion: For $69.99, we think the Diablo III branded mouse is a pretty decent deal for the Diablo-loving gamers of the world. The custom design, great design and awesome performance of the mouse mean it’s a potent weapon in any gamers arsenal. That said, if Diablo III isn’t your cup of tea, there’s still plenty to love.

  • Summary: Launch week troubles shadow an otherwise good title.
  • Pros: More Diablo goodness; excellent visuals; well-varied character classes; randomly-generated levels; expansive world worth exploring; nostalgia factor.
  • Cons: Uninspiring story; boring NPC dialogue; some broken/useless gameplay mechanics; likely an important stepping stone for the downfall of PC gaming as we know it.

Diablo III Review

  • Excerpt: “It’s just clicking,” they harp, they being the collective mind called The Internet. It’s not true, of course, at least not strictly speaking, as there is plenty of tapping the 1, 2, 3, and 4 keys, and sometimes even Q. If we’re not speaking strictly, then yes, it’s very true. Diablo III , like the Diablo games before it, is really just a lot of clicking. Click. Click. Click. In Sonic games, players just hold right and press the jump button from time to time.
  • Pros: A refinement of the familiar, Action-RPG satisfaction that feels personalized
  • Cons: Always-online DRM is as belligerent as it gets

  • Conclusion: Has Blizzard created a game that can last as long as Diablo 2 has? I don't know, but Diablo3 is an absolutely stellar game that everyone can enjoy, provided they've got a stable internet connection, and the time to find all that sweet, sweet loot.
