    Diablo III excels in this handheld version and its full edition shows how much work and new content the authors have put in it after the release. In addition, its coop is fun. [Issue#291]

    As much as I love playing Diablo 3 on my PC, the Eternal Collection on Switch may very well be my new preferred way to play - nothing beats lounging in bed, romping through a rift with the light out while I should be sleeping - all thanks to Nintendo Switch and Blizzard Entertainment.

    This is the handheld version of Diablo that will please everyone. Diablo III: The Eternal Collection on Switch is a very successful and solid port of the 2012 game with all its content and updates. This is one of the best hack slash ever made, promising dozens and dozens hours of fun exploring, killing and looting in a magnificent dark fantasy world and the fact that you can play it anywhere and with anyone so easily makes it just irresistible.

    A fantastic version of Diablo III to enjoy, this time, on the Nintendo hybrid console. And it comes with all the current content of this title that has been designed to be replayed almost infinitely, and on almost any platform. The portable version and the possibility of playing at home are what we like the most. And least of all, the fact that we cannot cross party with our Battle.net account. A small drawback to be able to enjoy a title that returns to feel like new in a new platform (and we must remember that Diablo III is a game that is already 6 years old). Almost nothing.

    Well executed conversion of the demonic hack&slay that might not look as crisp as the other versions, but manages to conserve the spirit and the motivation cycles woven into the very fabric of the mechanics.

    This compilation of Diablo III and its expansions underscores how far the gothic hack n' slash series has fallen.

    I had never played Diablo before getting this Switch version, and I really enjoyed it.

    The best part of Diablo is certainly its lore and very dark, Gothic atmosphere. It creates a certain fascination for the characters and especially the villains, whose artistic design and staging make them the highlights of the story. Each scenery brings one new facet of the darkness of hell, and conveys a convincing feeling of desolation.

    Gameplay-wise I found the game quite accessible, with standard RPG features like the customization of the equipment, spells and a lot of loot. I have only tried three classes (sorcerer, necromancer and witch-doctor) and thoroughly enjoyed all of them. Although one could - rightfully - argue they all represent different playstyles, the core of the gameplay is still fast-paced, hit-and-dodge style, with a slight variation for the necromancer that I found tankier and also protected by its minions.

    The levels of difficulty are quite different. It is pointless to play in difficulty easy/normal where you just go from area to area killing monsters without fearing any of them really. After realizing this, I restarted the game in the fourth level of difficulty (don't remember the name). After one or two first painful hours where I could really feel that the base equipment was harsh for a start in this mode, the game became enjoyable: not too hard, but not too easy either.

    I found the graphical quality to be excellent for the Switch. No framerate drop whatsoever, even in handheld mode, and even when the screen if filled with 50 or more monsters. Very enjoyable.

    The best part of this Switch version is probably the possibility to play the full story in coop up to four players, and each with a single Joy-con if you don't have additional controllers. The single Joy-con play is definitely less comfortable than the pro/double joy-con controls (especially for dodges for which you have to hold the stick down and tilt it), but after a few minutes of practice it is really no problem. Quite an achievement to put all these controls on such a controller and still make it rather comfortable.

    The quality of the cutscenes makes me regret not to have more of them though. There are like 5 of them in the whole game and they are of excellent quality, perfectly immersing the player in the dark atmosphere of the game.

    Highly recommended.

He states that "this has been done a millionOff the bat, don't even consider Stamantha's review because it's completely false in every way. He states that "this has been done a million times better in other games", which is a completely innacurate statement seeing that Diablo is the all time most popular and greatest dungeon crawler franchise in gaming history. The only 2 games that have come close to being in Diablo's shadow are Torchlight 2 and Path of Exile. But neither of those is on Diablo 3's level. This game is still addicting to this day, and with the addition of the awesome necromancer it's now better. D3 provides countless hours of monster slaying for that next best item you're looking for. Diablo was never about story, so if you go into these types of games for the story you will be let down. Dungeon crawlers are NEVER about story. They are about slaying tons of monsters on screen and getting as much loot as possible. It is mindless yet fun. You have to play for more than 20 minutes if you want any kind of variety in any game...so please ignore Stamantha's 5 rating, because it gives very false information.

    This game is great, and it's a very good thing Nintendo finally gets some Blizzard love.

I enjoyed it very much. Overall this is a good adaption, except occasionally the screen becomes frozen when I relaunch from sleep and have to restart the game. That's the only bug I have noticed, happened about three or four times during my entire gameplay period Expand

    Отличная игра, с хорошим сюжетом и графикой.
    Поставил плохую оценку, так как разработчики этой игры влезли в политику!
