Summary: Huge fan of Diablo 2. Played a ton online and offline. Picked this up thinking it could never match how great Diablo 2 was and can't put it down. Seriously, I have the controller in my lap while I type this review. Incredible game, and the wizard class really sold the new control scheme. Very seamless, less number crunching, more story and action. No downside, except that I bought it used and the disc is a bit worn. Going to return it tomorrow for a new copy.
Summary: Ok so I was bored one day and downloaded the demo and for the first 10 minutes I was like "this sucks" but.....I kept playing and somehow got sucked in even though I had never played Diablo on the PC before. Okay, so the graphics arent's great especially by PS3 standards and the sound leaves much to be desired but the gameplay is easy, the control scheme is great and the game is fun and addictive if you like dungeon crawlers and looting and treasure hunting.
Summary: First Impressions I wanted to share some of my findings with the Console version of Diablo 3 since I've been playing on the PC version since beta. On my pc Diablo 3 account, I've leveled each class to 60 (except my wiz who is 57) and have played my monk and witch doctor to paragon levels above 60. I share this info because I feel it's important that you know that I speak from some level of familiarity with the game.
Summary: Skeptical at first? pc to ps3? Well it worked, it worked well. Diablo 3 was a decent pc game besides the constant internet connection, and lame auction house. But the console version is fantastic, with better drop selections, the ability to dodge, and no required internet connection is great. Diablo feels comfortable as a console game not so awkward and thrown together; I wouldn't be surprised if Blizzard made more console variation games.
Summary: Great visuals and customization, but the story lacks coherence. I don't like feeling like I am just hack and slashing my way to the next quest, I prefer the activity to have meaning and be in context of the overall story. With D3 I don't get the latter sensation.
Summary: Really good game. I only went to rank 36 in 2 days then my ps3 disc drive broke so I didn't repair it I just sold it to gamestop sold 8 games but not this game or my cod games. Im waiting to get the ps4 when it comes out.
