    Should I buy Diablo 3?

    Hey guys,

    I'm looking for advice as to whether or not I should buy D3. I've been a fan of the series since D1 was released way back then. But with College tuition and having to submit my final project, I've ignored D3 until now.

    Problem is, I keep seeing the customer reviews on Amazon and other websites blasting the game as terrible. I only care for the story tho, I never bothered with the MP aspect of D1 or D2 and nor do I care for the MP in D3.

    So, is the story worth it?

    Thanks.

    To be honest, most people here would say the story is not worth it. I personally am not bothered by it, it's good enough to keep me going.

    But I very much like the smooth gameplay. Why don't you find out for yourself to see if the gameplay is anything for you? Get the Starter Edition (link is to the EU version). If you can play to the cap of level 13 and still enjoy yourself, it's safe to say you're getting your money's worth when buying it.

    I'd personally not recommend this game (even though I am still playing it, which some what contradicts my advice).

    The replay value IMO is not great and they've removed a lot of the key features that made D2 / LOD stand out from other RPG games. But at the same time, there are some major improvements (graphically for a start, some of the smaller details i.e. background gfx make it look so much prettier).

    If it was kept more towards d2 style (i.e. make a game in hell - kill any boss etc you like for mf, have upto 8 players, runes charms and a proper skill / stat tree, this game would have been perfect).

    I'm just playing it as I'm fed up with call of duty xD

    In my opinion everyone should try it! It's really great. Maybe gameplay is not as good as in Diablo 2, but generally I don't regret buying it. I bought it at XXXX and didn't pay much.
