One of the most impressive and successful computer role-playing games of recent years is Diablo, and creators Blizzard Entertainment turned up the heat with its similarly popular follow-up Diablo 2.
In this sprawling game, you take the role of an adventurer out to stop the evil Diablo from bringing his equally evil brother Baal back from the dead. It's a daunting quest, and the game itself can sometimes seem as awesome to overcome. But thanks to this strategy guide, things can be a little easier. The book features detailed breakdowns of all the classes of adventurer, and how best to equip and train them for their arduous journey.
It gives an in-depth overview of all the skills, spells, potions, weapons and items you might possibly need on your way, along with staring a hard stare into the cold eyes of the enemies you might meet. On top of this, it gives a stage-by-stage breakdown of your quest, with helpful hints and tips of how to cope with the many obstacles you will find in your path.
It is, as you would expect, terribly useful for those brick-wall moments, when you can't seem to get any further and also serves as a much more detailed depository of knowledge than the game's manual can muster, as well as being a helpful guide to the games online multiplayer options. If you want to delve deeper into this already very immersing game, then this guide should will certainly help you on your merry way.--David Bailey

This strategy guide has several problems.
First, it was outdated since the first patch of Diablo II to 1.03. Several skill tables are just not true anymore. Read more
I was greatly disappointed by this book. The layout is very good, but most of the character and quest info can be found in the game manual as well. Read morePublished on Feb. 2 2001 by Christine
