Is it too easy? Yes.
Is it not easy? Yes.
How can it be both easy and not easy? Yes.
That above statement made no sense. Yes.
Ok, now we are getting somewhere. Yes.
Playing through normal difficulty, I found the game way too easy. I could literally not even look at the computer and hold left click and win, any fight. Boss fights were incredibly easy, solo, or with a full group (of the huge number of 4).
Then nightmare came. First act? This is easy I thought...until I came to those damn unique mobs. Those suckers are harder than any boss in the entire game. Putting out lasers that go in circles, have life-drain ground AOE-s and all sorts of other stuff. I have seen more people die to these Unique mobs than any boss encounter. (OK, I will admit I am only up to act 2 in nightmare.)
I am very happy by this increase in difficulty, as it being so easy turned me off. I thought to myself, (Great this is so wowified that I can look away from the computer and still win without any chance of dieing).
However, the game is still very easy at other times. The boss battles are entirely way way way way way way way too easy. Did I say they are way to easy? Perhaps they get more difficult in nightmare, but my experience with the act 1 boss on nightmare made me yawn. All the sub-bosses made me yawn.
Uniques much? I get so many uniques I don't even look at some of them anymore. They instantly become sold to the vendor because I have enough blacksmithing mats that I could make anything I want 10x over. I need gold, not crappy uniques.
I am still enjoying the game...at times. When it is difficult, I play more. When I start playing and nothing is challenging, then I quit playing.
Personally, the game feels watered down, with the coolest aspects being the torture equipment in the various dungeons that can be activated. Also, the fact that you can destroy the same equipment is pretty cool.
Beyond that, I feel the game is catered to a crowd who wants their hand held still. Sure it can get difficult, which I like...but no more town portal scrolls? no more identify scrolls? I havee more potions than I could ever use and find myself dropping stacks because i get so many new better ones that there is no need to hold onto the old ones.
I do not see how a real world auction house could work for anything. I have yet to see a green, the one legendary item I got sucked so much that I sold it to a vendor.
Perhaps more will come later on in nightmare or hell, but right now, I still feel the game is too easy, save from those blasted unique mobs and their crazy abilities.
