  • 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.

    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.

    For all the kids that say they cannot find hacks, This game does not need Hacks. Also, All the kids that say they have a level 99 are lieing.For all the kids that say they cannot find hacks, This game does not need Hacks. Also, All the kids that say they have a level 99 are lieing. It takes over 5000 Baal Run's to even level up from level 98 to 99. If you die that much, you honestly could not have even gotten to level 99. Greatest game ever! Expand

    The expand is the best thing blizzard do to this game, new act 5 new classed and new items and more. Now the expand was the biggest upgradeThe expand is the best thing blizzard do to this game, new act 5 new classed and new items and more. Now the expand was the biggest upgrade for this old game diablo 2. Why the expand because people are getting little boring to keep killing diablo over and over again. So the added a extra boss. With new bonus sets of armors allot of new mobs and so on. Best expand ever. Expand

    You do repetative things in it,but they are fun,and you get rewarded..(unlike some wannabe sequels)
    From personal experience,i played hundreds,thousands of games,old and new,but this is the only game that has the magic.It never bores me.
