Where to begin... Diablo III has been a much anticipated release for years. Blizzard has taken their time to make it true to the previous titles. The polish level is high, as we have come to expect.
You will find familiar music, voices, characters, as well as lore from Diablo 1 and Diablo 2. This makes it easy to fall right back in. You can tell that Diablo III builds on lessons learned from World of Warcraft. Even the login screen is very similar. This trend continues throughout your experience. Art style is the most obvious similarity. At times I felt as though I was playing a modernized and gloom filled WoW dungeon in isometric viewing. This is not a bad thing. I am quite enjoying myself.
I will be playing until the Beta closes its doors. I will continue to toss screenshots into the slideshow below.
All in all, I am excited to play and I am happy that this game is finally being released.
