Just not having fun with it. I find there new skill system to be horrible and the lack of animations for characters is just pathetic. Why allow a monk to equip a sword if he doesn't actually use it? He holds it but all his attack animations are the same as if he didn't have it in his hand.
Why would you use a sword on a monk anyway? All his attacks are punches or kicks. Which is probably why they're animated that way.
There are certainly things I could pick apart about the game, but it seems like it will accomplish what it's set out to do, which is be a sequel to Diablo 2. Besides the Beta is restricted to the first chapter and a low character level. The core gameplay systems seem to be well-designed.
