    Not really,it took me almost 2 hours until i was able to log in game that night and from the posts on european forums(which i read during attempts to log ) asians had their share of problems too.

    i bought both.

    and to answer the OP's question, its only worth it if you are happy with your purchase.

    how many boring console games get sold for $60? this game is better than most console games, i will say that.

    i want to know if there is a game that people don't complain about and if they don't it is probably because they don't care.

    sorry guys, its worth it to me. i have spent $60 on far worse that is for sure.

    Thats an abundant number of "Yes" considering the great amount of post in the forums saying it sucks.....

    For me its great. Considering that I haven't gotten to the meat of things when I get to Nightmare and beyond the story is entertaining and the gameplay is awesome. Im not taken back by the gfx like many others are. For me the game is doing what its supposed to do, be fun image

    Yes, because 3 million copies sold and counting (in 3 days) is a nail in the coffin.

     

    I never liked Diablo 1+2, but I love Diablo 3. Blizzard delivers once again :)

    I played one of the last betas they had and I thought the game was allright, not worth $60. So I was going to wait for a price drop. Right before the game launched I decided I needed something to play, as Aion was just not doing it for me, so I said what the heck and bought it at midnight at my local game stop. I still say $60 is a bit much for this game, but I am enjoying myself quite a bit, if you like the action rpg overhead dungeon looting games than I think you will like it. If your on the fence than try to get a trial key, or wait for it to go on sale.

    Diablo is nothing at all like GW2, so why would people who want Diablo 2 want to buy GW2? Hahahahahahahahaa

     

    Also no one from ArenaNet were lead designers for any Diablo game, just designers, which there were MANY of. 

     

    Again, very ammusing :)

    I didn't vote because im up in the air about it. I haven't completed the whole game so far but i have to say the only thing i find boring about the game is the non-replayability of multiple classes doing the same acts over and over. As a casual player i would have thought they would have added more randomized caves instances to go into that had more random stuff to complete. The other thing that's annoyed the hell out of me is the lack of offline play. This has caused ALL kinds of problems for everyone especially since they treated this launch day like it was the first game they EVER launched EVER that had online functions. It's like they completely forgot everything they learned from launching WoW.

    I think it's an okay game if you like flashbacks and can handle the problems being persistantly online will cause but i have to say that the price for the game is WAY too high for the problems and the design flaws they chose for this title. If i didn't already have the year long thing in WoW i would not have paid $60 for the title i have to say.

    Actually no he has a point. The real talent behind Diablo II left blizzard because blizzard was too stupid to hold onto the talent that made their games great in the first place. Just look at the state of WoW right now and the launch day hiccups these people had with D3. The real talent behind blizzard games went into companies like Arenanet, Runic games, basically ALL of the companies that are ACTUALLY innovating the industry right now. (there's one more company that D2 devs and some WoW devs left Blizz for but i can't remember at the moment which company it is) so basically, Blizz is a shell of what it originally was and it shows.

    GW2 is nothing like D3 no, however his point was that the REAL talent is making other game titles like GW2 and that's the point.

  • erictlewiserictlewis Cottondale, ALPosts: 3,026Member Uncommon

    I saw totalbiscuit take the game apart in his video youtube. Well I though there is no way a game could be that bad. So I went and got the game.

    Well I played it for 4 hours straight,  the only reason why i'm not in game now was the fact in 15 minutes i got to go get my kid from school. 

    It kind of reminds me of a mix of wow (online) and wow from the rpg days.

    The graphics are nice,  you best have a good card to play it.

    I not been a fan of blizzard in a long time,   wow (online) wade me really angry a long time back.  This game is OK, its not boring like I thought it would be.

    Im not too happy with teh story (Would say more but I'd be giving away story elements)... I played the beta and LOVED the gameplay. But I will say that I am a MMO player if that means anything cause it apparently does mean something according to some people. I dont care much for the whole internet connection thing cause most of my games require an internet connection. I don't care much for the RMAH either cause items drop left and right and pvp isn't my cup of tea. I will admit that your internet connection causing lag in single player is EXTREMELY irritating though. But the only reason I'm not getting it cause they pissed me off with the lore. Will wait for a price drop.

  • SilaxSilax Daytona Beach, FLPosts: 250Member

    Waiting until this hits the bargain bin in a year or two and then I would only play it for the story.

    The lack of character skill customization is a huge negative for me.  I played for half-an-hour at a friends house and watched him play his 26 wd for a while.  The "autoleveling" feature is a real set back for the series and I actually have fond memories of creating different "builds" in D2.  Like fire-wall mage, whirlwind barbarian, etc....

    Now everyone gets to be the same.  How fun.

    Could care less about the DRM or PVP, etc.

    Maybe it is amusing because you don't have lot of experience in gaming yet...........(don't even bother to pretend)

    Arenanet (the founders) were the main developers of Diablo 2, do some research.

    I was a Guild Wars fanboy when the game was released few years ago, and I know a lot about Arenanet.

    Guild Wars 1 was basically an Hack and Slash MMO, the combat was fast paced and involved lots of mobs  zerging like Diablo 2, although it had obvious some MMO elements thrown in it.

    I didn't play Guild Wars 2 beta, but my point was that while Diablo 3 is not much different from Diablo 2, if you really want to see the natural evolution of the that concept, you need to look at GW and GW2,

    Arenanet didn't make a Diablo MMO, but they updated  the Hack and Slash concept and made their own MMO using Diablo fundamentals while at the same time creating another unique and  distinctive game like GW,

    That's what Blizzard failed to do with D3 by creating a game which is basically the same as Diablo 2 but with slightly better graphic (DDO graphic to be precise), and it took them 12 years..............

    There is nothing different or innovative in D3 which we didn't see in D2 and that's very disappointing for a big developer like Blizzard.

    Looks like 80% of people that bought it, like it.  Pretty good odds, OP

    Starcraft 2 is already less than half price where I live.

    D3 is not a MMO and the retailers drop the price as soon as the demand drops

    Meanwhile while you wait, you can play Diablo 2, which is the same as D3 and costs much much less than 50 bucks

    LOL no isn't the same.

    i have D2 and D3 both loaded on my computer and have no desire to play D2

    its hilarious that you got all these people complaining because its different than the original Diablo games then you got people complaining that its the same.

    If you were a huge fan of Chess and Mattel came out and said they were making Chess 2.0 and it turned out to be Checkers, you'd be pretty pissed too.

  • VannorVannor YorkshirePosts: 2,970Member Uncommon

    Here's what I get from the complaints. It's either nothing to do with the actual gameplay (RMT, online only, just being a Blizzard game etc.) or they are compaining that they want more than is on offer because they think the game is too short.

    This suggests that most people actually like the game and the gameplay (but don't consider repeating difficulties, playing other characters, getting new loot or aiming for achievements more game)... it's the lack of 'story' content and new skins on levels etc. or it's the other non-gameplay stuff that bothers them.

    The game and gameplay is solid really they just want more variety or it's just the fine details surrounding the game that people arn't happy with.

    Personally, I'm getting that addictive feeling that I haven't had in a game for a very long time.

    "Did you buy Diablo 3 with all its problems"

    What problems? The game is a blast.

    Honestly you guys that keep talking about Diablo 3 lacking customization CLEARLY have not played the game.

    I've played every class up to lvl 15 atm and in just the first 15 levels there are alot of different ways to build each class.

    Literally every level you gain your build options exponentially increase.

    Diablo 3 SHITS on D2 when it comes to build customization.

    The only thing D3 doesn't have is passive stat points which don't mean dick anyhow because you would pretty much guaranteed pump points into vitality and your main damage/resist stat.  You don't need stat points in D3 because there are so many frickin build combo's from skills/runes/passives/weapons/gear/gem choices.

    So if you problem with the game is lack of build diversity or the amount of builds you can possibly create then you are flat out WRONG.  End of story, not debatable.

    Try actually playing the game past the tutorial stage...

    Yeah, there's customization. But when I get to certain points, I feel like one skill/rune combo is just straight superior to the rest.

     

    Maybe if they balance them out a bit it'll feel more like a choice.
