It takes some of the nice elements from the old one but misses a lot.
20 May 2016 | by See all my reviews

When this game first game out, there was an auction house implemented early into its release. This auction house was used so players could sell other in game items to other players. This auction house was necessary at the time due to optimal items for your character being nearly impossible to find on your own. Blizzard realized this was a bad choice and decided to both remove the auction house and add an expansion pack known as Reaper of Souls.

The expansion allowed you to get many more tailored item drops to your character. The item drops in the expansion were so improved that it makes most of your old items from vanilla Diablo III basically useless. The expansion is more fair to play through if you do own it. You actually don't feel as hopeless when you're finding items from monsters. The items you'll find a lot of times are actually good, tailored to your specific character.

Well that's some good changes they made stated above. What I still dislike though is that you can't trade unique items to people unless you found that item in the same game session as that other person was in. Also, after 2 in game hours have passed, the item becomes account bound.

If you want to duel your friends, you have to duel in a very small area. Unlike Diablo II where you are able to duel literally anywhere as long as it's not town, in Diablo III you're heavily restricted where you can duel your friends or others. Diablo II also had a much higher max player cap. In Diablo II, you could have up to 8 players in a game session. This allowed team duels in the Blood Moor for example. You could have 2v2v2v2, 4v4, 3v3v2, or even a straight out free for all, a 1v1v1v1v1v1v1v1. In Diablo III, game sessions are limited to 4 people only. This means you lose a lot of possible social interaction that you would have had if you were with more players at once.

If you're looking at this game for mainly PvM or Person vs Monster action, it fills that role well. If you're looking for a true successor to Diablo II, I've heard many others suggest a game such as Path of Exile which is free as far as I know.

I still do play Diablo III however. It lacks many elements that I wanted it to have but it still plays solid enough to play to pass the time. It's only worth playing at this point if you have the Reaper of Souls expansion pack though.

It does get repetitive without a true duel system and that is a pretty big flaw to me. Diablo II's duel system is what kept people constantly farming up bigger and better items so that they would dominate on the battlefield against other players.

Oh well, there's always hope for if or when Diablo IV ever comes out.

I give this a 6/10. Playable but not ideal in my opinion.
