Nothing to do with the gameplay, of course. It actually is great fun now, I’d recommend it now despite the online and Battlenet stuff.

Pity about the whole battle.net thing though – I try to stick to Steam as much as possible as I tend to completely forget about games I have on other platforms :-/ I’m getting old, I think.

I love my cloaked, sickle-wielding characters.

But it’s also slower and duller, and whilst the skill tree is huge, it’s also kind of confusing and drab. I liked the skill gems thing, though, that was good.

Torchlight 2 – also much better value for money, but the same downside as far as I’m concerned. And I prefer Diablo’s cartoony graphics to Torchlight’s, they’re at once crisper and gloomier.

Loot 2.0 has improved Diablo III a lot, you might find it worth a second go, but it is much more expensive for a game that isn’t enormously better than those other two.

With competitors on the market which offer a more accessible, bite-sized and much cheaper alternative – I’m not sure Diablo III ever lived up to its full potential. I think Blizzard missed a trick with the game and should have taken a lesson or two from some of the game mechanics that were implemented in say, Torchlight 2 or Path of Exile.
