Well, I've just play the free version of Diablo 3, patch 1.03. So my impression : it's great.
Yep, really, it is a great game.
First : the characters are well designed, nice to choose between man/woman, and there gameplay are totally different.
Second : the music : incredible, god bless the Blizzard musicians, and the graphics and design : incredible too, god bless the Blizzard designers.
Third : the level : really different at each restart, some events can totally changes (for example the pauper's grave at the tree with the witch doctor, or the woman ghost bone quest). And data streaming : great, no more waits between level entrances.
Really, for a game, no problem, it is a good game, better than Diablo 2 for that. And it works under Linux with Wine (that's great too, thanks a lot for that).
Ok ok, but I've played a lot at Diablo 1 and 2 when I was baby (I started soon).
So, there's some points I'm confused with.
Perhaps the most biggest : the characters evolution.
You can not choose their evolution, it's forced. At Diablo 2, I remember, you could choose to get ice, electric or fire way with sorcerer, it was nice, same type of choice with others characters. In Diablo 3, you cannot, you get a better level, with one or two better powers, that's all. No choice with attributes and skills too. Hopefully you can choose between your powers, but that's all. So... it's very very limited in the characters customization. And if I replay an other barbarian for example, it will have same attributes, so it will be same barbarian (excepts for weapons).
Others points are not so biggest, there's some bugs (but maybe it's due to Wine), like monsters who run more fast than my characters boots with +20% fast, or fat monsters who do mass rush at easy level (in Tristram church), or connections problems sometimes.
So will I buy Diablo 3 ? Perhaps yes, for this longs winters nights, but I hope we've got more controls, more choices, on the characters evolutions then.
