Diablo III is a pretty fun game, and a solid one at that. But it has some flaws.

Before I start talking down on the game, let me just say a few things that this game shines on. The art style is pretty damn fantastic. Not only the monsters but the level of detail of the gore is great too. The environments look pretty detailed. Especially at Act 2, where you can see the city in the distance. Or how they decided to add in status-related monster deaths. Such as poison killing them and tinting their body green and hearing them squeal as they fall. Or the basic covered-ablaze-dance death animation. It's nice.

The game's pretty smooth. I can't say much about online. Portals are now just a all-you-can-use button rather than taking up a scroll, that's really cool. Same as identifying, although I preferred having Deckard Cain do it.

Character conversations are quite nice too. Especially silly one's between opposite genders. But over time it's so-so. Enchantess can be sometimes annoying because he's like a school girl. (Quotes aren't exact) OH THAT'S ONE FORMIDABLE ENEMY UP AHEAD, WE MUST BE CAREFUL. WE DEFEATED THAT FORMIDABLE ENEMY. Or random shit. Then we got the Templar.. THAT ENEMY UP OVER THER-.. ... ... GLORIOUS.

Reminds me of Dragon's Dogma. Master, there's a ladder ahead. Master, nothing in existence likes fire. Master, shoot harpies in the wing or face. Master, there's an ocean up ahead. Careful master, a goblin!

Now, onto the flaws. Apart from the obvious massive QQ about having to be online about playing singleplayer, and the hacking, that shit doesn't matter.

I love how upgrading gems costs money!!!

What I also love is that blue items tend to have better stats than legendary items at higher difficulties. That feeling when you're around hell and you finally get a legendary drop and a few blues or a few rares are 10x better?

Also the fact that inferno isn't even a challenge, it's badly designed. Monsters will instant-kill you even if you come in prepared and know what you're doing, you'll still die. What's even more funny is that blizzard nerfed skills which helped players survive. Well **** me bro.

Please, take the time to watch these videos, they come from people who actually put all their heart into what they do. It's not about being paid, it's about the truth people need to know.
