View Full Version : Poll: Your Favorite D1/HF Levels
While I'm posting diablo surveys... what's your favorite level? It can be for whatever reason, but obviously if you just say, "hell, 'cause that's where the best loot drops" it'll be a fairly boring vote.
As always, the poll post roulette is in effect. Comment and then vote, or vote and back browser to comment.
Definitely cats. That's where you first get a change of scenary, and the level layouts are a lot nicer for Rogues than the wide-open church levels. You also get lots of goats and hiddens, which are some of the best monsters in the game. You still find shrines and lots of books, and in SP there are several useful (and easy) quests like Arkaine's Valour.
I love the Cathedral. It's exactly the right tone and environment you would want from a medieval/gothic horror RPG. The feeling of creeping around passageways, the music, I loved it ever since I played Spawn. Definitely my best and most dominant memory of D1.
I really liked the crypt in hellfire - it had some of this "demonic feeling into it".
Church was a bit too dark IMO, but also rocked; catacombs were also great.
The hive was probably the worst
The hive was really lame, it was difficult to see where you were going and the general layout seemed a lot like the cave layouts anyway? I didn't much like the crypt either though, it seemed overdone and like they were trying to be badass on purpose, but it just ended up looking tacky IMO.
i like caves because i like its graphics and the monsters (except death wing :D). and i like hell also, because of leet itamz :D. my vote goes for caves.
Many areas have right feeling, but church and catacombs always gave me the best feeling. Probably, because they were a subject to more revisions than caves and hell.
So, I vote Catas for superb monster mix, kickass music, decent library amounts and just right environment.
The worst environment was hellfire's Nest: ugly scenery, squealing monsters with only 2 AI variations there, lame music.
Cathedral and Crypt also were very well done.
It's a close call between the Cathedral, Crypt and Hell. Basically the monster/level scenery/music combination is great in any of them. Overall, I think the Crypt is the best, but I do think Hell is most badass though, with the Black Knight and Balrog type monsters. The caves are great too, but they fall just a little behind, in my opinion.
i thought the cats were the best, the change of scenery was a pleasant suprize, the quests down there were awesome two (halls of the blind still gives me nightmares lol) arkanes valor was my first ever change of armour style too.
The dungeon levels were the creepiest, especially if you went into the Butcher's den.
I liked the catacombs - awesome music, my favourite monster types (hidden, goatmen), and my favourite quest:
I can see what you see not.
Vision Milky then Eyes Rot.
When you turn they will be gone.
Whispering their hidden song.
Then you see what cannot be.
Shaddows move were light should be.
Out of darkness, out of mind.
Cast down into the Halls of the blind.
