    I've been playing it a bit. It actually does play a lot like plays the video. I'd say that it has the same mechanics as Diablo II but with improved graphics. The soudtrack is again superb. The cut-scenes are good, but not as good as D2 (but the D2 scenes were so good they could have been their own short film). I'd say overall there's a litle less compulsive desire to just keep playing, a hour or two and I'm done for the night. (Okay, that sound bad, but gamers know what I mean!)
    The biggest knock I have is that it requires you to be connected to the network. I've been dropped from the server a few times, and on my system it needs a reboot between plays.
    Oh ,and I've only played the Barbarian.

    Well, I was really happy about the release of Diablo 3.
    Finally, after 10 years of running to BAL in LOD and some really tough Mods (Zy-El) I bought the 3 Title.
    Unfortunately, the game does not fulfil my needs. The Gaming-Experience is totally different. Sure, it's still Hack'n'Slay...
    I can't even describe it.
    I tried the BETA and it was good. Why did they change so much?
    And now... PayToWin...
    The Drop-System still needs improvement.
    Since I play D3 I did not find any Item which would be totally cool for the char I am currently playing.
    And who knows If Blizzard just generates Items to earn even more money with D3?
    At the moment I think I quit. Maybe some mate will buy my acc.

    Agreed. I finished it on Normal and have no desire to play Hell Inferno or Hardcore....

    Currenty I am on Hell.
    But it's really hard. As I said before, I can't find approiate Items which would upgrade my skills to play it.
    Often I just stand around with other players which have armor worth 1000$.
    When I hit an enemy the Lifeloss is at min, barely visible...
    Anybody interested in a german Acc^^?

    The patch just prior to Reaper Of Souls and that expansion itself have turned D3 around. Without an auction house (both real money and in game ones are gone) the game is now awesome. Highly recommended, come play! Add me as VCKadath#1546 I have a 65 Witch Doctor but plan on starting a Crusader soon!

    I haven't tried the expansion yet, but I own Diablo 3 for both the PC and PS3. I have to say I enjoy it one my PS3 more. Being able to play with my wife on the same screen has be quite fun too. It reminds me of the good ole days of the first Diablo on the first playstation. My brothers and I use to play that for hours on end. We still LAN up on occasion and do a play through of Diablo 2 as well.

    Season 10 ended today. First real season for me, I made it to Paragon 500 even, and did 6 of 8 season steps.

    Necromancer launches next Friday and Season 11 starts end of July. I hope to complete the season next time!

    Diablo has "seasons"?

    I played 1 or 2 on the PC. I've been interested in getting 3 on PS4, but never quite get around to it.

    Yup, and they are more interesting than the base game. Nobody much plays base game, everyone is playing current season, tho we are between seasons for a month.
