Deckard Cain (D2): "It takes time to master your skills... and use will hone your technique. But take care to choose your new skills wisely"
(.... didn't have to worry about that in D3, no wonder they killed him off)
Izual (D2): "Tyreal was a fool to have trusted me! You see, it was I who told Diablo and his brothers about the soulstones, and how to corrupt them. It was I who helped the Prime Evils mastermind their own exile to your world. The plan we set in motion so long ago cannot be stopped by any mortal agency. Hell, itself, is poised to spill forth into your world like a tidal wave of blood and nightmares. You and all your kind... are doomed"
Izual (D3): "The cold hand of death reaches out for you, hero!"
(..........um yeah, then dies seconds later)
THe countless detailed rendered iron maidens in D3 halls of agony cannot compare to one imaginative iron maiden in D2. D2 story telling have the power to tap into your imagination instad of telling it out bland.

That's what happens when you completely replace the entire team of an absurdly popular and amazing ARPG with egotistical amateurs. They may have some amazing designers but those amazing designers sure don't have a lot of input.
Go play Path of Exile ... and be gone with ya. You people are more egotistical amateurs than the D3 team could ever be. Be thankful that the combat is good thats all that matters... Go play POE and fall asleep in one of their dungeons... cause it looks like D1 did. Hopefully the expansion will have more gothic evil goodness.
It's pretty much the same, actually.
Other than a lack of pentagrams, which have nothing to do with either of those, you can still find people vomiting themselves into undeath, corpses impaled on walls and other objects, and hundreds of dead bodies lying around on the ground, wholesale or torn to shreds.
Seems pretty similar to me.
So, like the previous Diablo games then.
The same places it's always been. people being tortured, sacrificed, maimed and murdered by hellspawn.
Because developers realized after Doom III that artificial darkness without being meaningful is exactly the opposite of meaningful. If it's everywhere, it's boring and pointless.
I'd hate to have to use a flashlight mod in DIII because I can't see anything without throwing some glittery spell out in front of me.
Black coloring and psuedo-satanic teenage angst do not make true darkness. People knew that back in the first and second Diablo- it's why they never focused on the garbage that's been removed as the source of the true grittiness the game retains still to this day, and will likely only further improve on.
Just because they put the same elements in the game does not mean that they pulled it off in the same way as in D1 and D2.
The Barbarian was suppose to be the same barbarian from diablo 2, but they scrapped that concept because it was "too complicated".
Leah was raised by the most intelligent and knowledgeable individual in the Diablo universe outside of Heaven, but she is as dumb as a doorknob.
Deckard Caine get's killed by a Fairy.
Azmodan is portrayed as the most gifted commander in the series, but he is about as crafty as a comic book villain from 1940's.
Belial, Lord of Lies and mischief, gives himself away almost instantly. "I am the emperor, I am under heavy guard by Belial 24/7. I know where he is, I found a cool necklace that makes do the Ghost thing like in Star Wars, I am not Belial. Can I see the Soul Stone?"
Everyone, including Tyrael, trusts Adria even though she has been gone for roughly 20 years and suddenly appears.
It is hinted that Zulton Kulle has defied death, as the Horadrim had to drain his blood, decapitate him, mummify his butt, and toss his corpse in another dimension to even have a chance to get a rid of him. Yet, all you have to do is beat him to death in his private chambers and he explodes. He never comes back in any way shape or form to haunt you like he apparently did to the Horadrim until they took him apart like a puzzle.
Diablo, being the Prime Evil which means he has limitless power from all seven hells, uses pretty much the same attacks as he did in the last two games.
Everyone forgets about the Black Soulstone as someone (probably Tyael) spartan kicks Diablo's corpse off the top of the Crystal Spire for $hits and giggles.
Meh what ever, I guess I'll go farm some more demonic essence in VOTA.
