I was looking forward to this game been releases for years.
I was going to rely on this game to keep me occupied for many years to come.
I thought this game you would be able to spend hours having fun it was so big.
This game I expected so many different things to do it would be MIND BLOWING.
Within a week I got bored.
Now 500+ hours of playing this game,
Killed Diablo in Inferno,
Got allmost all the Achievments,
Got many lvl 60 Characters....
Hundreds of hours of farming and grinding....
Now I'll quit playing this game.
Spent thousands of Euros on a Brand New State of the Art Gaming PC,
Panasonic Viera Flatscreen HD TV,
Expensive Desk and Leather Directors Chair,
100 Euro Keyboard,
Steel Series Diablo Mouse and Mouse Pad,
Expensive Speakers, Sound and Bass unit,
And a Expensive new PC Desk..
Not to Mention the game itself.
All of this equipment not sits idle and does not get used. I just use my old PC it is only a DuoCore but its enough for I need, check emails, browse webpages, visit my gambling websites, Check sports results. And stream BBC iplayer and some cartoons like Family Guy and Ameircan Dad..
I've spent all this money and not even using the PC....
I could have spent this money putting it towards a New car, and road tax and the car insurance.
Coulld have spent this money going on holiday, could have went to America for 2 weeks And then to Holland for a weekend, AND then to Spain for a week, and Australia for a week...
Could have used this money to redeccorate the home abit, new furnature and stuff.. anything.... Feel Like Ive wasted alot of money now because I got this New PC and gaming equipment only to play Diablo 3, I dont play any other games or facney any of these new titles people are saying they moving too like Lineage 2, GW 2, Lorchlight 2 and Path of Exile, for me they do not look apealing...
I dont feel angry towards Blizzard or any Members of their team. They did ok, they made a game and made lots of money in profit, thats what this world is about, money, they win.
Game has been made 99% for money and 1% to give players what they want.
But in fact if you take things into account like:
How long they spent making this game,
The money invested in making this game,
How good the previous game D2 was,
That you should take everything good from D2 and build and enhance on it,
How big of a fan base is for this game and how passionate the fans really are,
How much input over the years the fans could have gave Blizzard for the game,
Just In general how good this game could have been,
'I Swear on God and all the Saints and Angels in Heaven'
This game is 1/1000 score. It really is a bad game.
I feel abit lied too, cheated, scammed and robbed.
All the promises, all the Hype,
All the Blizzard staff using words like 'awesome' so loosely when talking about the game,
I feel really stupid too for believe these guys how good this game was,
I feel like an idiot believe this game was going to be super special God sent, mind blowing,
I feel very sad and upset knowing that this game truly is a fail,
Was expecting this game to last years, It lasted 1 week,
This game cannot be fixed with updates, or expanions. Nothing.
I dont feel any rage or anger, I feel pretty relaxed and calm right no,
Im pretty cool guy, so this descion is made in good frame of mind,
But this game is rubbish so rubbish I think its a joke from Blizzard.
They took the time of years to make this game, And as I have played millions of games thoughout the years I took a couple of hours to write a document as to how I felt this game was so poor.
But it took more time than a couple of hours so I decided even though I could continue to keep writing this is wrong this is bad and adding to the list, I just had to stop, Because there was no end and each time I check forum I read about some guys post who has brought up problems and ideas and things about this game that I did not even know or think about.
#1 Stat points are no longer chosen by the player restricting character customisation, stopping character class specific builds like a demon hunter who has all dexterity stat or demon hunter who has half dex half vitality, removing some unique quality to our characters. Not been able to assign stat points also prevents you somewhat from trying to build a certain character to fulfil a certain role in a party.
#2 Skills are not chosen by the player rather given, this is taking away the feeling of free choice and that the skills you are choosing is making your character different and unique than everybody else's. When in actuality everybody has the exact same skills, and if somebody has worked hard experimenting to find a set of skills that work good together, somebody can change their skills to copy in a instant.
#3 Skills do not have levels so everybody's skills are the exact same, you can never have it where one demon hunter has put all his point skills into elemental arrow, and another demon hunter has put all his point skills into hungering arrow, and while both demon hunters are very powerful at killing monsters, there is a third demon hunter who placed his skill points evenly amongst various traps and disciplines and this demon hunter is way more tactical than the other two and while he cant kill as quick and is not as powerful he can survive way better and do maps the others cannot because he has planned his skills out and distributed his skill points very cleverly.
#4 No Rune words, ok so this is the same world of Sanctuary as before as in Diablo 2, but now there is no rune words anywhere in the world? What happened, why cant there be almost all the other rune words for us to see again, or all of them return? And why cant their be new ones? Making rune words was very fun and gave some goal collecting the base item with sockets to make and then collecting the runes, and then the most fun part of all was making a runeword with good options, like get a socketed flail and make a call to arms with 6 battle orders and stuff.
#5 Normal, Nightmare and Hell difficulty even on first play through was very easy and no challenge, and by less than one week after release of the game the majority of average game players were onto inferno difficulty, its too short and too easy. How about average normal play through takes 7 days, average nightmare play through 2 weeks, average hell play through a 4 weeks? In replace we get a game where I can do normal difficulty lvl 1-30 all acts all quests, kill Diablo, in about 3 or 4 hours.
And achievements, complete act in 1 hour, that just shows how easy and quick each act really is.
#6 Max people in game is 4 people.... cant even have party of five, one of every class, in Diablo 2 there could be 8 people in a game and you were allowed to customize your games to allow max number of players 2-8 depending on how many you wanted to join, so if you wanted 4 you could, or 8 that too.
There are mmorpg out there like global mu online that every 2 weeks they have a battle for the castle event called castle siege and 4 or 5 guilds of about 400 people in a guild battle for a castle, and that's just the guilds that are registered who turn up, and is literary thousands of people fighting. Blizzard thinks 4 people is ok. Ahah.
#7 The music is repeated so much throughout the different acts, and feels like there is only about 4 songs for the entire game and they are so bland that I cant even remember them, is one or two tries of some epic battle music like maybe act IV but nothing that stands out. And did I say the music is repeated? Or am I repeating myself.
#8 Each character has no customisation options as to how they look like, how about a monk with no beard and some hair, with black skin and blue eyes, how about a monk with a longer beard and different colour? How about options to change the height for to be a bit smaller or taller? The weight so we can make our character skinny so he looks like he run through dungeons all day, or make them a bit fat so we can tell they been in the inn all day drinking ale? Change their appearance, size, anything to make them unique to the player. But all characters look the same, might not be able to see different hair colours and eye colours and skin textures so easy behind all that armour, but its there, and its made you feel like you had a choice of the style and uniqueness of your character.
#9 The Plot is very weak and not compelling, the want to be twists they have produced are lame and Cain dies doesn't make me feel sad or emotioned or anything or the like I'm sure its intended to do, I just feel like 'eh? he died?' and I don't remember it, if you were going to kill him in the plot why not build up some relationship with him and the player during the course of the game so that the player gets used to him and then when he dies in the plot the player might feel something.
#10 The graphics are not amazing and the details aren't so good and it seems like they have spent more time working on the games gravity mechanics for when you break a barrel or some torture device in halls of agony and it goes flying in million pieces, than spending time on details. And it seems to me that they made the games engine first and then spent a whole load of years on content at which time the cutting edge graphics they thought they had and which this game deserves has become out dated.
