Obviously LOTS of discussion about the merits of D3 vs D2 and the general consensus seems to be that D3 doesn't compare to it's predecessor...
So, as a person like myself who is new to the Diablo franchise and has ONLY played Diablo 3, would I enjoy the graphics, gameplay, etc, in D2?
It's only $10 so not exactly a big gamble. I'm just not sure I want to end my apparent blissful ignorance. :)
Absolutely enjoyable indeed.
My friend and I played it through normal, and got distracted by life so we quite before getting anywhere in nightmare really, but Im thinking about going back and trying it.
Don't judge D3, as D2 is because they are different games in various ways,although they share a common theme of ARPG.
The art style is very different obviously and you will prob. enjoy that a lot. Some gamers here are slightly miffed that D3 isn't darker, grittier because D2 had light radius and torches so you did have that feeling of danger ahead. I very much get that and it prob. would have been wize of Blizz. to have offered a tickbox for those who like that environment ( No idea what level dev. needed to achieve it).
So off you go and enjoy,and yes for $10 imho,its a steal.
