  • Summary: With a stash that's double the size of the "Diablo II's," hundreds of new types of items and magical properties, two new powerful character classes -- the Assassin and the Druid -- , and an improved enemy A.I., this expansion pack should reinforce the staying power of an already legendary RPG.

  1. You're really getting an amazingly reworked masterpiece and not just "a few more levels."
  2. If you liked "Diablo II" and you are aching to get back in and play some more, there is no better reason than LoD.
  3. The expansion is so packed with new features, creatures, classes and items that you could mistake it for a new game.

    In short, the best reason to own Lord Of Destruction is for the resolution bump -- but it's ludicrous that we have to pay for that...Its high price notwithstanding, this is one expansion pack that's well worth owning.
  5. If you are an old Diablo fan, you probably already finished the expansion, and if you never even played Diablo II, well, now you can play a complete debugged game with seven available PC classes.
  6. Has a lot of depth that's readily apparent, yet it takes a long time to really see how much is packed into this great expansion to one of last year's most addicting games.
  7. The wide range of character classes to choose from, the forming and perpetual refining of each character, and the sheer breadth of customizing traits available all serve to solidify the replay value of this immense epic.

    Started playing D2 when I was *young*, and sure I got rushed through all the acts. Me and a buddy decided to bro-quest the game and beat itStarted playing D2 when I was *young*, and sure I got rushed through all the acts. Me and a buddy decided to bro-quest the game and beat it without outside help. Just the two of us. He played the paladin, I played the necromancer and we both had a great time. Honestly, just a few cheap but solid rune words make the game more than beatable.

    One thing worth mentioning is that the online experience is made so much better by the online economy. a site called d2jsp, a trading forum, is one of the best places to find things worth doing. After, or maybe even part of that, it's a lot of fun to really theorycraft yourself some interesting character builds.
    In my mind, this game was the perfect experience.
