Average User Score: 3.9May 21, 2012Like many others, I found the launch day connectivity issues quite troublesome; however, that doesn't change the fact that this is an amazing game.
I have played through the game on normal difficulty once as a monk and found the combat to be fast paced and enjoyable. I think there is a good variety in the numbers and compositions of the groups of enemies you fight. Though you can only have six abilities usable at one time, I find there to be a large and viable variety in which abilities you pick and how you use them. Abilities can be augmented by runes you pick up as you level. The random loot system works well, but there might a little too much white and grey quality items that drop, causing the player to either use town portal to go back to town and sell/salvage/store items, drop lower quality items in favor of higher quality items, or to not even pick up some of the lower quality items at all.
I found the voice actors for the main characters to be of high quality and I don't particularly have any objections to the music.
Due to the high level of blood and gore, some people should not buy this game, but if you are unsure I advise buying the game, it is well worth it. Beyond the blood and gore, I find the graphics to be pretty good quality.
I found the story to be engaging from beginning to end. I found the characters to be compelling and interesting, even though I didn't like all of them as people.
The cinematics were at the level I have come to expect from Blizzard: sheer excellence.
In conclusion, this is a great game and well worth the cost.
P.S. I would be shocked if the connectivity problems from launch day occur again, though it is likely that they will take servers down from time to time to perform maintenance.… Expand
