Should I buy Diablo 3? Opinions welcome...
 
If so at what price point, see pole... all "opinions" are welcome:

If not, then pls recommend the best alternative for same game type, I'm thinking Torchlight 2 although I didn't really dig the cartoon graphics of part 1...

I haven't played D3 yet so I can't comment. I suggest you try Path of Exile.

I just picked it up on New Egg for $49.99. I will let you know tomorrow after it arrives and I play it.

Diablo 3 is the biggest letdown this year for me ...

The Game is truely build around the Auction house... The game is not based on skill its based on how much gold/money you wanna spend

I can't exactly tell you personally, as the current laptop I have won't run the thing, without hacking it to run with Intel gfx, and doing such, it runs 4-6 fps and I lag so far behind any group playing, I'm still running up as they're killing. I gave up after about a day. Until a new computer I ordered arrives in a couple weeks, can't really say more, except this.

Someone I know, had also got this, and after about a week or so of playing he said he'd rather play Diablo II, then this. He was extremely disappointed that he waited so many years, for it.... I got it through the annual pass, so other then a $5 I put down (which I never followed through on, due to the annual pass) haven't really payed extra for it. They did offer me the beta, after i had loaded the MoP beta and had a number of bugs to report to them with that, but then again it wouldn't load.... Anyhow, there you go, from what I've been hearing thus far, albeit it is second hand....

Diablo 3 is my least favorite in the series but I still have gotten 50+ hours out of it. It's good value. I still don't like how you need to be online to play solo and lag spikes = death.

For the same price of Diablo 3 you can buy Titan Quest Gold, Sacred Gold, Sacred 2 and Torchlight 2 togheter.

this vid and the following two sums up pretty good of what is wrong with diablo 3 (difficulty, gear, story etc). Worth a watch imo.



What kills the enjoyment for me though is the constant nerfing. I dont see much point in playing anymore only to find what i used today will be worthless tomorrow. It baffles me even more now that the money auction house is up.
Blizzard is essentially putting band-aids on a broken leg.

DON'T BUY THIS PIECE OF CRAP. I have no idea why this piece of **** got so high review scores on many game review sites. I really enjoyed Diablo 2. Come one, after fu**cking 10 years, almost same graphic (how can this be?), same game playing style. This is the biggest letdown. I believe Blizzard just wants to make quick money on this. I am pissed off.

If you were a fan of D1 and / or D2 then yes.
If you are like me and never got into it then no. I bought into the hype and purchased it. Yeah... nah. waste of $80.
