Beware - Terrible Game. Brillaint Cashgrab
on July 25, 2012
I hope Blizzard is happy they rode the coatails of Diablo 2 to sell a boatload of copies on day one. Diablo 3 can be described as many things:
-Unrewarding (You will never find a good item on your own)
-Time-waster (There are cooldowns for everything, identifying items, town portals, 90% of the skills, rez timers etc.)
-Cash grab (The whole game pushes you towards the RMAH through crap drops, cheap enemies etc.)
-Gear check (The game requires zero skill once you have the gear after spending real money or billions at the gold auction house you just click click.)
-Bug riddled mess (They didnt do a proper beta and now this game is a glitched/bugged mess just yesterday two methods of god mode became public in a game where real money is involved. Worse off they had been reported a month ago a Blizz ignored them.
-Cheap (The monsters k ill you using methods you cannot dodge. They hold you in place and you cant move because all your skills are on cooldowns and kill you in seconds then you have to wait for the res timer cooldown too.)
-Solo only (No incentives to play with friends)
-Unfinished (PVP was functioning in 2010 yet we still dont have it. They also spent the last year cutting features to sell in expantions (3 gems, Mystic, talisman system, followers used to have more skills, nephalem cube etc.)
-Random (You never know when you cant play because of weekly maintenace, random downtimes, etc.)
-Nerf (Their first patch made the game worse, chests dont drop loot, the environment doesnt drop loot.)
-Linear (Oh you enjoy travelling between acts fighting your favorite bosses and clearing your favorite areas? Well too bad. This game has an incredibly dumb linear approach where you are stuck on wheels doing quests which give out disgustingly uninteresting rewards)
-I can go on but why waste any more time on this turd.
Do not buy this game. There are a ton of alternatives on the horizon that are worth your hard earned cash to name a few Torchlight 2, Guild Wars 2 , Path of Exile (its free), Borderlands 2. Avoid this game at all cost and save yourself the dissapointment. We waited 10 years and this is what we got a game that is several steps back from one that came out in 2000)You spend time searching for fun and it just never arrives. RIP diablo franchise you will be missed.
