Diablo II: Resurrected shows why the original title remains the standard against which all other ARPGs are judged. While it doesn’t come with many hooks and ever-evolving content that has become a baseline for the genre as it transformed into a game-as-service model, not all games need to be played with forever in mind. Diablo II: Resurrected proves that Blizzard’s classic is still a blast, even today. Whether it’s your first foray into hell and beyond or your thousandth hour, Diablo II: Resurrected is worth the time.
Finally this game gets a graphic, that it deserves. The old graphic was already outdated during the release and later on it was ugly. But now we can enjoy a great resolution and some nice graphic effects.
The gameplay is great as usual: You are always improving your character, not only by every level up, but also by new items, you find. The classes are fun and plays differently, my favourite is the necromancer.
The story is epic and the presentation of the story is top thanks to the cinematics, that are now even better.
Diablo II: Resurrected delivers on the promise of a rebuilt original, without tampering with the soul of what made it amazing in the first place. With completely remastered graphics, all-new cutscenes, and console cross-progression, Diablo II: Resurrected takes us back to Hell, and it’s every bit as amazing as it was when we played it 20 years ago.
Diablo 2 is back in a Resurrected version and could appeal to purists as well as young people eager for challenges: The plastic has been completely revised, everything has been modeled again, and is now very flattering for the retina. The atmosphere of the game is as crazy as ever even though the storytelling has gotten a little old. The same can be said with the gameplay, which has hardly changed an iota: it's still just as nervous, addicting, devilishly catchy, but at the cost of sometimes outdated ergonomics. Nevertheless, we do not shy away from our pleasure of replaying this legend in conditions much more in line with what is being done in 2021.
At the end of the day, Diablo 2: Resurrected certainly feels like a game that is designed with veteran and nostalgic players in mind and it truly nails the experience in that sense. Whether it’s going to be able to build a new audience with first-time players is a much tougher question, but the old school experience may have more to offer modern gamers than it appears at first glance. Diablo 2: Resurrected fills a very unique spot in the franchise’s offerings by allowing players to continue returning to D3 (and someday Diablo 4 for a modern experience), but also now having a visually modern option when they want a bit more baseline difficulty and a classic experience.
Diablo 2: Resurrected is, if anything, a faithful remaster of the original game. The visual overhaul and fantastic cinematics maintain the dark tone of Sanctuary’s horrifying demons and tales. Unfortunately, that alone doesn’t hold up after 20 years of innovation. Annoying gameplay mechanics, constant selling and buying, restrictive controls, regressive character art, and finicky UI poorly date this adventure. More quality of life changes should be here to truly bring the classic back to life. Diablo fans may love this remaster; others will likely not.
Спустя время можно сказать, что это не плохой продукт. Поиграть в нее убив пару сотен часов можно легко. Но при одном условии если вам нравится гринд. Если нет то 15 часиков на сюжет. И еще столько же на ностальгию если она у вас есть. Хорошие ролики прилагаются.
This is a classic diablo 2 remastered, yes. It has nice graphics and sound but It lacks any innovation and QoL improvments. They could have done so much more than just upgrade the graphics but they really didn't. It sometimes is annoying to play cause the game aged incredibly bad. It's still a classic and worth a while, but there just isnt enough content to please a lot of veterans that instead of this can play an OG one instead.
The game itself is just what it should be: pure Diablo II experience as it was back in the 2000s. However, what drives me crazy is ****, and this is the only reason I don't give this game a solid 9/10.
The **** client keeps crashing constantly. Literally after every click it goes to "not responding" state despite of me reinstalling it four times. If I want to play D2R, getting it run may take up to 10-15 minutes due to this annoying Malware client that has to run on the background in order for D2R to run.
This problem seems to be very rare, but for those who have it, it's very real and totally ruins all Blizzard games.
