Average User Score: 2.2Mar 7, 2013In the middle of the day on a weekday 3 days after launch and all the servers are busy the game is unplayable.
Obviously EA only responds to hits to their pocketbook, please be sure to rate this game 'fairly' on 3rd party retailer sites such as Amazon.… Expand
Average User Score: 7.9Jan 25, 2013The game suffers from the same problems as the free source mod plus a few more. The animations of weapons swung are off from what is actually connecting. You will see someone pull back to take a swing and take damage the same instance before their swing or thrust displays as connecting. Unlike the free mod, you will get stuck on stationary objects and the movement in the game doesn't compensate for this at all.
Plus there is a whole host of bugs including throw-able weapons 'breaking' so they don't won't work anymore. I also experienced the chat system breaking.
This isn't really the game or the company's fault, but the game attracts a lot of children who haven't hit puberty yet, so get ready for squeaky voices over the built in voice chat.… Expand
Average User Score: 8.2May 19, 2012This game and especially this DLC / expansion really made the game. Now here is a game company actually trying to entertain people with a quality product instead of mega corporations ripping people off with mediocre at best games that carry on some huge franchise. This expansion adds a whole other dimension to the game: technological progression over time with upgrading several key buildings. I liked everything about this expansion. My only caveat is some of the new structures are a bit gimmicky, but almost all of them are useful.
Also, the storyline, if you realize there is a message to gain from it, is quite enlightening. I know most people probably assume the hints at fluoride in the water supply and other things like that are tongue-in-cheek jokes, but believe me, its no joke.… Expand
Average User Score: 3.9May 19, 2012I am rating this game FAIRLY, but 6/10 means I probably won't buy any more Activision products. Another great company corrupted by humongous mega-corporations with all their "focus groups" and "market research".
The game itself was unplayable the first 3 days of launch even single player. That is absurd.
To make matters worse, the game is a super easy snoozefest up until you fight Diablo, and they made him ridiculously hard to kill. Boy, getting snared, then have diablo instantly teleport to you with no animation and 1 shot is fun??
So thanks for ruining another great franchise, activision / EA.… Expand
Average User Score: 5.7Mar 9, 2012Seeing the HUMONGOUS disparity between what users are rating this game and what critics rate the game CLEARLY exposes the fraud of some game review sites via bribes. I have seen the instances of these bribes for high profile games increase severely over the past few years. I basically agree with Sheprdlovr's review, this game is very poorly put together overall. The graphics look terrible compared to any decent titles in the past few years. I feel robbed of my 60 bucks for this game, with the Star War's mmo being even worse.… Expand
