  • 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.
  4. 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.

    This game is impossible to stop!!! It stops getting fun once you get to about lvl 90 because then all you can do is fight other people. But This game is impossible to stop!!! It stops getting fun once you get to about lvl 90 because then all you can do is fight other people. But you can always just make a new character to start the fun over again. Id recommend this to just about anyone with a little brains. Expand

    You would have to be crazy to listen to Dimitri (he voted 1). I borrowed this game off a mate. I am so hooked on it. Diablo two was good but You would have to be crazy to listen to Dimitri (he voted 1). I borrowed this game off a mate. I am so hooked on it. Diablo two was good but this was a god send so many new items. Personally I use druid who is cool. Dont use any kind of cheat tho... it takes the fun right out of it. Expand
