Unbeknownst to most of its inhabitants, Sanctuary was saved some twenty years ago from the demonic forces of the underworld by a few brave and powerful heroes. Most of those warriors who directly faced the armies of the Burning Hells -- and were fortunate enough to survive -- went mad from their experiences. And most of the others have buried their haunted memories and pushed the horrors from their thoughts. In Diablo III, players will return to Sanctuary to confront evil in its many forms once again.

    A beautifully designed game that packs intense action, memorable set pieces, and some of the best couch co-op play you'll find. Wickedly brilliant.

    Blizzard has done an outstanding job in bringing Diablo III to consoles, so much so that I was still getting engulfed by its addictive nature even after putting in over 100+ hours on the PC.

    Even if you already own its PC brother there is something incredibly refreshing and revitalising about playing the game offline with friends, each with a controller, together on the same screen.

    Diablo III is a great game. This action-RPG game from Blizzard works perfectly on consoles thanks to a good control system, a redesigned interface, and a fun co-op local multiplayer. It's an amazing experience.

    Diablo III is the best journey Blizzard has ever made in the world of console gaming. The control system is perfect and the flavour of slaying monsters on your sofa, with a joypad in your hands, is sometimes better than the one you feel with your PC. Graphics, though, remain better on a good computer.

    Diablo III Is a solid sword and sorcery dungeon crawling adventure. Just push the direction you want to go and then hack 'n' slash... how simple and fun.

    Diablo still contains enough impulsive monster-slaying to entertain, but the trek from its home on PC has left it diminished.

    Never played a Diablo game before but when I saw gameplay of Diablo 3 on console it got me interested despite all the hate the game got fromNever played a Diablo game before but when I saw gameplay of Diablo 3 on console it got me interested despite all the hate the game got from PC gamers around the world. I wasn't sure if I'd like it or not so I originally planned to wait for reviews to come in and a price drop before buying it. I ended up changing my mind, got it on release day and I don't regret it.

    The reason behind the 8/10 score I gave it is due to the story and gameplay. The story isn't the best ever told, it can be predictable at points but it definitely is worth paying attention to. As for gameplay, killing monsters is incredibly fun especially as you level up and equip better loot, unlock more powerful attacks and runes which increase your power and abilities. This seems to me what the game is all about: farming gold and finding powerful loot so you can become stronger and kill enemies faster. this is why I took away another point in the score. Maybe there is more to the game than this and I'm missing something but overall the game is really fun and addictive but it gets tiring after a while, at least for me, but the thing is after you take a rest from the game for awhile it's that thrill over taking on a hoard of monster, killing them within seconds and seeing all their corpses at your feet that makes you just want to load it back up and kill some more!

Honestly, I dig loot, crafting and leveling up just as much as the next guy, but this game is not nearly fun enough to get as p*ssed off as people do about it. This is a game I throw in when I want to space out and not think for awhile waiting for Dark Souls 2 to come down in price. People held their breath 10 years for this? Expand

    I know this game has been out for a long time, but i feel the need to say my opinion.

    The game to me, is not that bad, yes its a bit repetitive, and yes the graphics propably arent the best, but it really dont deserve 0-1-2 and 3, there is more in this game. There is a few things, i dont agree with in the user complains.

    First it is the loot. People complain alot about that. Honestly i dont see a problem with it, when i get some new loot in the game, legendary or rare, it makes me go in and look, and really makes me think, which of these fits my character best, do i want more in magic, health, or strength. I like that it is not just a game, where you get a legendary armer, and suddenly you cant get anything better than that. Sometimes you get rare items, that is even better than the rare, but it is up to you, and how you wanna buildt your character to choose if it is better or not. All the complains about the loot, is wrong if you ask me. I feel that people also get angry, that the game dont give good enough loot, just because there on hard difficulty, i dont know about that, i only played on normal.

    Next we got the gameplay and the story. Look the game aint that bad, we got 6 or 7 characters, they all work diffrently, and i found them interesseting, eccept from the witch doctor, he really sucks balls. He is just stupid, and i should never have been in the game.
    But i find the story interesseting enough, and its a story i would like to play agin.
    The skill tree is much easier now, its not as difficult to master as it was ind the last game, where ind my opinion you had way too many to choose from. Yes in the end it falls a little short, and all the characters look the same when you replay them, but you dont have to play the same character the second time, there is 7 of them, try another one.

    I completed the game with the barbarian, and it was cool enough, the story was nice, and it was certanly better than in the last game, where the story was more or less not there, the cutcenes in this game actually refers to you, so you know you are part of it, you didnt feel that in the last one.

    Replay value well... Start over with a new character, and the game falls apart inside the first 5 minutes. Why the first five minutes, because thats how long it takes you, to figure out, that all your progres with your last character, all the gold and stuff in the chest, is transportet with you to the new character. Wheres the challenge in it then. Theres no fun in that for people like me, who never plays online. That is why my review gets a 5/10. The first playtrough is good, and it deserves a 7/10.
    But as soon as you replay the game, the score falls, if you like to start over, everything is translated to the new character, and that gives the game zero replay value for people like me, who likes a challenge. Had it been the same character, it would have been completely okay, but a new one, that is unforgiving and stupid. So replay the game, and it falls to a 4/10, because there is no option to turn that off. Maybe if i delete my last character, but that just make if much less funny. So 7 on the first playtrough, and 4 on the other, so its gets a 5/10. Its average because the games lifetime is ruined, beacuse of that stupid mistake, you may think its okay, but i who wants a challenge when i start over, i dont want to be given 1k when i start. The game is good enough, but as sson as you complete it, it is ruined because you dont wanna delete the character you went trough hell with.

    The DLC okay, the DLC is good enough to pick up, if you find it at a good price. I really hate all this DLC crap, just stop it and include it in the game for gods sake, they only do it to earn more money and i hate it, its getting out of control.

    So the game is a 5/10 average, good first play, really bad second play.

    Really disappointing game , after so much wait and hype even after BETA this is just a mere disappointment , Blizzard really messed this up .Really disappointing game , after so much wait and hype even after BETA this is just a mere disappointment , Blizzard really messed this up . Yes I know that the game itself as the previous franchises is a grind but Diablo 3 currently is a **** . Story feels just sucked out of a finger . Except for the 1st Act it was great , what follows up is basically **** and grind . No end game content and if they added some its **** . Expand
