So I was wondering...
If I should buy Diablo. I liked all predecessors and the Main target would be a healthy mix of adrenaline and Hardcore mode. Players 8(and such functions help) as does replayability as does general fun and Diablo atmosphere. So the question stands(after 1.05-which impressed me Btw):
To be honest, I bought the trial key to see if it was worth it and the game had me hooked from there all the way until I completed normal mode. I'm slowly working my way through nightmare difficulty... it just gets a little repetitive when you have to start the whole game all over again just to get to a higher level. You have to play through the game 3 times just to get to level 60, but if you enjoy the game then that's okay. I myself find it repetitive - especially when you want to try out other classes.
I never played Diablo 1 or 2 (although I am thinking of buying Diablo 2), but I think Diablo 3 is a great game. The only real downside I can see if that it needs to be online all the time just to play, but I don't have too much of a problem with that since I'm used to playing the original Guild Wars. It would be a problem if I was travelling, though. I play it fairly casually as well (if and when I want), and I don't find the auction house to be a pain. Maybe it will be when I get to level 60. Only time will tell, but so far I'm really enjoying it.
I caved in a fair few weeks ago and bought Torchlight 2, but it didn't hold the same feel for me. Sure, there are more enemies, more loot and a bigger world, but I had no idea what I was doing or why. The story just didn't make much sense to me. Plus, you're given text walls to read in case you want to know what the story is, but it's such a turn off when you just want to play the game whilst knowing what's going on. I find Diablo 3 to be more fun, for some reason. Perhaps it's the art style or the cinematics, but I just prefer it
