I had to travel to birmingham Al last week so I picked this game up to play on my down time (I have strong feelings against HBO as I tend to live in hotels
I think the graphics are better than D2 as I remember it. maybe not as good as some others but it definitely looks good to me/us. I was able to try out three types of character classes I now have a L22 Wizard, a L14 demon hunter and a L12 Barbarian. The helmet from Best Buy had helped greatly in leveling my characters.
Anyway, I have played by myself and with groups. I don't mind the controls and the game seems fairly well balanced to me without one character type being an absolute unkillable monster.
So now we have two more copies and my wife and two kids are now playing as well. This should take us to the new console and Ghost launch.
