I'll probably get flamed for this, but I'm really disappointed by TL2 in the long run. It was promising the first 20-30 hours, but then... you realize that: a) some skills are too strong, most is useless; Same goes to weapon choices (Two handers suck compared to sword&board or dual wield) b) itemization is actually TERRIBLE, like in D3, Uniques are just rares with random prefixes and suffixes thrown together, rares are much more powerful at pretty much any point of the game (seems only D2 got it right with Uniques which were sometimes actually UNIQUE, and not "a rare with two more affixes) c) The games is annoying without twinking/magic find on elite due to monsters' high damage and crits, but on the other hand, it's too easy for people who farm up (especially +dr% socketables, which are overpowered) d) The statistic enchanter adds so much +attributes to high level gear that the game becomes faceroll no matter what you play (of course you may deliberately avoid this OP enchanter, but..) e) The game is extremely repetitive, and this comes from a guy who played Diablo 1 and Diablo2 for 10 years f) There's absolutely ZERO endgame, less than in D3 g) There's no protection - people are duping stuff left and right with a simple sharedstash copying. It TOTALLY takes the "competitive" part out of the game... i) There is no pvp, and probably won't be j) There's no respecialization, now while some die-hard players are satisfied with this, I really don't like to reroll a char and play exactly the same levels killing exactly the same monsters in an exactly the same fashion because I discover that a skill I put 10 points into ended up useless (and I'm a perfectionist) fortunately there are mods around... k) The game tempts you with illusion of customization but it's an ILLUSION, exactly like in Diablo2 - 100dex, 400 str (or 400 focus if you're a caster) is the cookie-cutter most people follow, with VIT being useless Also, TL2 doesn't seem to have ANY lasting appeal. I can't really imagine people playing this after like 2-3 years from now on... Was it worth 20 bucks? YES. I had a really fun time with it. An "instant classic" ? HELL NO. This game isn't worthy of polishing Diablo 2's old, dirt-stained boots. TL2 is good, but it's a kind of good that lasts for a month max, and then gets forgotten. Very overhyped game. While you may hate me for this, I think Diablo3 will eventually overcome its difficulties and be played years from now on, and TL2 will be dead and forgotten in no time. Cheers.
