I was eagerly anticipating this game; had fully bought into the hype that DAI would make up for the shortfalls of DA2 (which I actually liked but clearly they could have done so much better with that title). However, DAI is clearly a console game first. I'm just telling you, don't waste your money on the PC; it's practically unplayable. What's real bad is that I can see the core of a decent game in there somewhere. There are other reviews with details so I'll leave it at that: If you're a real RPG game player and play on a PC, DAI is pure frustration. My guess is that console gamers don't know any better and so will give you a more positive spin.… Expand

Because of the required, always online DRM, if you have the slightest hiccup at all over your connection, you get disconnected.
Yes, so you're playing BY YOURSELF, in what is essentially a SINGLE PLAYER GAME, and you will lose your progress every 5 - 15 minutes.
Oh, that's not all. If you have any latency at all, you have lag in your game. So, yes again, YOUR SINGLE PLAYER GAME WILL LAG because Blizzard (for what appears to only be selfish reasons) requires you to have always online DRM.
One might hope that "well at least the game (when you can actually play it) is good, right?"
I wish I could tell you it's a good game. It is 2012 and this game looks 10 years old. At least. No joke.
And, then the controls just plain suck. It might because of the 300+ ms of latency that the current servers are running at; hard to tell, but I'll give them the benefit of the doubt and *hope* that the gameplay improves if they do something with their servers (but why should they have to?!?!...) But really, how hard should it be to Point.. and Click... in a single player experience?
I really wish I could 'review' the game. I mean, I've been waiting for this game for like 4 or 5 years when I heard the first rumors of a Diablo 3, but despite getting the game immediately on release day, I've only been able to play for a total of 4 hours or so because of the constant disconnections.
I really don't think I've ever been more disappointed in a game. And that is really saying a lot.… Expand
