Summary: Allow me to begin by saying that D2 expansion has exceeded what D3 hasn't. What i mean't by that is... Point of Diablo is to explore and find better gear improve you're character while doing the story line.. Diablo 3's Auction House ruined the game entirely, My entire gear is from the auction and mind you that you can even use real $$$ to buy gear for a shortcut.
Summary: This game showed a ton of promise but the overall implementation was horrible. The story is very bland, the servers are laggy and still have issues. The game turns into a farming game with little incentive to continue. 99% of the drops are useless and crafting items is a joke. So that Blizzard gets their cut, the auction house is where everything ends up. It costs more to craft an item (of which 99% are useless) than to buy a good one on the AH.
Summary: I bought this game with the intentions of playing it day on end.... I ended up beating it fast and finding myself farming on the highest difficulty. Needless to say, i went and bought Diablo 2 which is better. Diablo 3 just doesnt have the original dungeon hunter appeal. ALSO LACKS PVP WHICH WAS ADVERTISED IN VIDEOS! It lacks compatability for the average user's computer. I dealt with lag spikes unless my computer ran at high settings which still had laggy times.
Summary: I've played this game for a few weeks, and have to say I probably got my money's worth, sort of. There are several things that really frustrated me about this game. The key ones are lack of Offline play (You have to be connected even to play single player, which stinks if you want to play single player during their weekly "maintenance" in which the servers are offline). The second is the heavy push to use their Auction House.
Summary: Spare yourself with this game. It is not a good quality game at all. It was released in a Beta format that everyone paid $60 bucks for. PvP was to be released with the game and 3 months later it is still not in the game. They have focused more on fixing Auction House issues then fixing real game issues. Spare yourself and pass on this game.
Summary: I played D2 for about 2 years straight and on and off for about 4. When i heard about D3 i was very excited and eager to play. After I started playing i realized what they advertised wasn;t the same as what I bought. Got to inferno in about 3 weeks (Inferno is Hardest difficulty) It's supposed to be an Game meant to play for the end game but has no end game.
Summary: What were they thinking? Putting a real money auction house? REALLY?!?!?! You already bought the game and expect awesomeness but you get nothing but money gone from your wallet to have a little bit of fun and excitement.
Summary: From a standpoint of a long time Blizzard fan, (2 decades is a long time), the company itself is trying to appeal all games to a higher player base, creating a much more casual game. For those of us that remember the long road to Diablo 3, it was a hype that never lived up to its own name.
Summary: I have never gotten tired of a game so fast in my life. I have been able to progress through every game I have played with at least 2-3 months of continual play. After 70 hours of total playtime with one level 60 barbarian and a level 30 demon hunter, I am done with this game. Yes, I only reached act II of inferno, but I am so bored and so tired of having to spend 500k minimum on every piece of decent gear.
Its a good game for the mass slaughter of monsters

Summary: For me it was a waste of $60... The game was fun in the begining but trying to get to the end game is just fustrateing.The final act is called Inferno, to even have a chance of surviveing Inferno you need too spend days farming for the best possible gear. Which Blizzard keeps nerfing your abilities too farm the proper gear.So you need too turn too the Auction house that allows players too sell loot they find..
