    Diablo II Resurrected brings a new breath of life to the 2000 classic with a new graphic layer of the best quality, and some minor touches to its gameplay that makes it more comfortable to play, while remaining true to its roots. And what's more important, its great arrival to consoles has made the title more accessible than ever. Vicarious Visions has proven again that they are one of the best studios at the time to remaster these classics, and we hope that they can achieve to stay afloat on the downward spiral that is isolating Activision-Blizzard lately.

    Great remaster. Very convenient control from the gamepad. The price could be lower.

    I am age 42 & played a lot of Diablo 2 when it came out. I am also a professional video game programmer.

    Pros: => Great for game
    I am age 42 & played a lot of Diablo 2 when it came out. I am also a professional video game programmer.

    Pros:
    => Great for game preservation. I really hope this is successful so more games can be preserved like this.

    => Console controls when moving and attacking are really amazing. IMO, this is the number 1 reason to go back and play this game if you are an old gamer ... to play from your sofa on a console. Given this is a "remaster" of PC, not a full "remake", it really has been done amazingly. Compare this to other games (like Titan Quest) who tried to do the same thing with an older game, the combat controls are amazing!

    => I love the skill system and classes in this game. Diablo 3 was weird with skills. IE: You have a bow equipped, but can use a fist skill. You have a bow equipped .... NEVER shoot arrows unless you have the crappy "normal attack" assigned, which is buried, nobody uses and just gimps your character. D3 skills and animations are just WEIRD. Diablo 2 just makes sense. You actually use your weapon you have equipped. You have a normal attack and then skills that consume mana. My brain just comprehends and accepts this easily.

    => I care about LOOT in this game. I never really did in Diablo 3. I just looked at up or down arrows, and didn't read stats all too much. IMO D3 gives you way too much magic loot. It gives you so much loot that its all meaningless & its so good on the drops, very early on, that the merchants are meaningless.
    In Diablo 2 however, I truly read what each piece of loot does. I actually wear non-magic loot sometimes. I also save up to buy things from the merchants. I also like how the stats don't change much over time. How constant the normal weapons are is similar to Dungeons & Dragons or Elder Scrolls, and I dig that. IE: A basic dagger will do the same damage for every plain dagger you find. Somehow this makes me care more about each piece of loot I get. It also end up learning their stats when they drop so the earlier stuff you don't even have to read the description for non-magical items.

    Neutral:
    => Updated graphics are great for the most of the game view. BUT ... USER INTERFACE still has rough edges for Blizzard standards. Like the XP bar just moves up statically with no animation and is a yellow square. There's a lot of rough UI elements like that. I get they just wanted to "remaster", but it just looks weird to see things that rough for a $40 Blizzard game by todays standards.

    Cons:
    => The Inventory, Skill & Store interfaces really aren't that amazing. It's a hybrid of console controls and virtual mouse with console stick. A virtual mouse is notoriously the worst way to port a PC user interface, but I understand how they wanted to preserve making shapes in your inventory.

    => Inventory space is so small, potions don't stack. I know they wanted to preserve the original. But you have to go to town SOOO often. lol. I'm sure game design-wise this serves a purpose to force you to manage your loot and think about your inventory more. But if not having stackable potions or expanded inventory was ONLY decided as a safeguard to not offend the whiny purists. Then I wouldn't agree with it. Me? I wouldn't complain if we had stackable potions... I think thats some of my life I cold get back.

    Take away:
    Overall. I am having lots of fun playing this game!

    I'm not mentioning the server problems at launch, because we all know Blizzard will fix them and always has.

It'sServers are down more than they are up, even single player suffers roll back, character loss, item loss and the biggest roll backs. It's missing key features they said it would have.
