I got up at 4am this morning, and played for 3 hours before getting the kids and me ready for work/school, (just could not wait until after the kids went to be tonight
). I am currently at level 9, (wizard), and probably nearing the middle of Act 1, (headed into the catacombs to find King Leoric).
So far, I am having a good time. However, I do have a few complaints...
1) They stream lined the game too much for the casual gamer. I REALLY MISS being able to assign my attribute points on leveling, which made me feel like I had a small amount of customization to my character.
2) Mobs are occasionally warping up next to my guy. I am pretty sure it is server lag, as we can all expect the servers to be slammed for the near future. However, being a mage, it does present some concern as things are starting to hit harder already.
3) Mana pool is always 100...if you rune it I believe you can get 120-130ish...I wish there was more flex there...Arcane orb costs 20 per cast, and you tend to run out VERY fast when getting mobbed.
4) this one is my own fault...but DAMN my mage moves SLOW! Not a game complaint, just something I am not used to. I am used to playing a frenzy warrior in D2...anyone who played/saw those know what I mean
1)It is a solid game. Great framerates with little issue that is not server related. No bugs so far.
2)It is nice to be able to swap between runes and spells when you desire, and not be locked into one spec permanently.
3)Story is great, I am really enjoying it.
4)It has that good 'ole Diablo dungeon crawl feel to it, and a lot of nostalga...really well done!
5)Blacksmithing seems really solid, except I will have to wait on it early on as cash is much harder to come by.
6)Love the music, may have to pick up the soundtrack.
7) ITS DIABLO!
