Diablo 3: It was a long wait, but was it all worth it?
Posted by lcenteno
Welcome back to my esteemed blog. Sorry for the delay in postings, but of course being a military veteran I spent the weekend with the family on this glorious memorial holiday. I also managed to get my hands on Diablo 3. I had a lot of high hopes for this title, especially since it has been well over a decade since Diablo 2 was released. So after all this time waiting, does the third installment satisfy the desires of it’s fans? Read on to find out.
Graphics: In terms of graphics, Diablo 3 does not fail to impress. Beautiful from the moment you begin your new adventure. The CG movie scenes are very well done. The in-game graphics are not to be overlooked. I found the designs of the characters and creatures to be astonishing not to mention the environmental designs. The bosses you encounter in this installment will impress you guaranteed. Score: 9.5/10
Sound: The musical score is well done and fits the setting of Diablo 3. The voice acting can be hit or miss once in a blue moon, but otherwise it is a wonderful soundtrack. Score: 9/10
Gameplay: From the moment I installed this game and began my new campaign, six hours literally went by in the blink of an eye. I found it very difficult to pull myself away from this game. The gameplay is very similar to it’s predecessor with a few new tricks. Combine that with a seemingly endless amount of hidden items, side quests, and online capabilities, and you have a formula for a title that will keep players hooked for years to come. Score: 9.5/10
Issues: Since this title is fairly new, there are a few hiccups that rarely occur when playing online. Blizzard is working endlessly to end this issue and make Diablo 3 a wonderful experience.
Final Score: 9.5/10
