I'd be curious to know where you're seeing this overwhelming love?

 

 

This sites review score for the game for starters; that and a million rabid fanboys perhaps, lol!

 

I've thought hard about this and why even sitting here now I cannot be arsed to boot D3 up and I've come to the conclusion that:

 

MMOs are just so much better as a whole than this style of game (ARPG?); they have all the same elements, plus look and feel like they were coded in the 2000s, not the 1900s. THIS IS MY OPINION BTW (caps for emphasis)

 

D2 was such a good ARPG that I could overlook the fact that from a technical perspective, the game was quite basic - even years after it's release.  However, AND THIS IS THE BIGGIE, Diablo III just simply hasn't advanced the genre or the technical aspects of the game (e.g. graphics) enough that I can be bothered with it. For me, it felt 5 years out of date on the day of release!

 

I guess the best analogy is someone doing a fairly graphically enhanced version of a Mario game from the late 80s, but with less control options in some areas, more in others and the whole thing still rendered in 2D.

 

Anyway, I can see how someone might like this game and I'm a bit gutted that I can't, but for me it's just not doing it so not much more to say really.

 

Happy slaying,

D3 is a fun game but it falls way short of D2 imho, it really does not have near the replayabilty of d2 and the loot drops have been wretched at least for me..

The need to equip via the AH to move forward due to intentionally bad loot tables and poor itemization really puts a deep taint on the whole experience....

Playing GW2..

You are so 100% right it stings my eyes when i read it, tha game itself is a design fail..no matter how good and smooth it plays

Diablo III is a single player MMO.

 

Cookie cutter builds, fotm classes, loot is not interesting (aka auras on gear, chances on strike or when struck, percentages of stats like 5% more mana), the "better" gear is just bigger numbers, nothing special on it (you farm for 5 more Vit, 10 more int/dex/str, 5 more resists), the cap level is attainable in 1-2 days,, really unfair (not hard, just unfair and cheap) difficulty implementation, MMO-style (one screw up = wipe). In two words, MMO-Diablo-progression-style. It's just so much different from the former versions that actually, if you really liked and played the others for a long time, it's just a very very slim chance to be happy about what you have now.

 

LINEAR ITEMISATION IS BORING

Nope its not only you im felling the same, worst money spent on my life (60euros), The game its very expensive, it needs always internet connection , but you dont need it to play for solo (only to get lag issues), same combat crap from L1 till L25 (where i stop to play), monsters A.I. bad as games from spectrum, i cant believe Blizzard made such a piece of crap game......
On other hand we had Tlight II for 30 euros (half the price), and far enjoyable and better game.
Shame on Blizzard for this piece of crap, and to not forget those nasty amateur issues on the first week.....
