I loved it at first but the more I hear about it the less I like. Don't get me wrong. I think the graphics kick ass and the characters kick ass. I just have this feeling that it will play too differently than Diablo 2. While I understand that they are not remaking D2 in 3d, there was this addictive quality to D2 that I haven't found in any other game. I hope they don't do that to D3.
Take for example Fable. It was a great game and had lots of room for improvement. I played it through 50 times easily. I boosted all my skills, I boosted none of my skills, I made wizards, archers, warriors, you name it. I played that game quite like I do Diablo 2. Fable 2 on the other hand. Looked amazing, the world was huge, there were so many more quests. I thought it would captivate me 10 times as much as the original Fable but it didn't. I played through it one time to get the story and that was it. It bored me. Something about it just didn't have that replay value quite like the first one.
So I am going to stick with I loved it at first but I don't now. I am keeping faith though. This is Blizzard we're tlking about and they do tend to make some kick ass games. I hope they surprise me with the end product. I hope it grabs me like Diablo 2 did.

The blind mind's eye replies with a sigh and a tear of contempt for those who see the world as it truly is.
Well I can't say I loved it at the beginning.. it was quite nice then and nothing to complain and I knew they were only the few first areas then and more was coming.. and after seeing a bit more I love it!
I'm up and down, in the beginning i was just amazed it was coming out and then I took a closer look at it and realized somethings needed some reworking, after seeing the adjustments they've made and the things they've promised will happen through the campaign I'm not in a hateful mood with it.
Its still got a fair bit of work but so far they are heading the right way.
I didnt like it a whole lot at first.....now Its grown on me and I love it as much as I loved the D2 style.....the only reason people were up in arms about it being 3D and less grittyish is because with only 2 entries in the series we all got VERY accostomed to the way it looked and played that any change would piss us off since the franchise nvr had much time to evolve...thats my take on that anyways.....either way Im loving everything about it so far
It looks too cartoonish, like World of Warcraft, which was one of the main reasons why I didn't like that game. But hell, it's Diablo 3 so I don't really care that much unless they go back to SNES graphics or something.
