Diablo 2 Battle Chest
Excellent game i highly recommend this
First you get to start of as 7 seven class such as sorceress,necromancer,druid ETC then once you choose a character you get to level it up and make your own build you want and put any gear on you want as you level up and go through the acts (5 in all). Anyway i had a excellent time playing this game and i think you will to.
A Good Game For Long Time Use
This game is great. It has lasting appeal. The game can go on for years before you beat it. It does get repetitive and loses intrest over time, but the game is addicting and you will always come back for more.
The game to play
this is a game to play. if you ever bplayed Warcraft i think you would like this game. for me i like it cause the combat is not always hard sand it is close to how Warcraft is. Warcraft might be a little harder at some points. this game seems easy right from the start like all games do. and i know it will get harder trust me. i would say this is a great buy.
BEST GAME ON PC EVER
The game doesn't really matter about graphics it's an awesome game and best pc game i ever played ;)
My Favorite PC RPG.
Gamers, don't judge a game by its graphics. This game is about ten years old, and its graphics may not be considered eye candy, but don't let that stop you. The storyline is great, and the online play makes it ten times more fun. This is the kind of game that once you pick it up, you won't stop playing. Despite its age, many people still play online. The only thing I'd have to say about this game is that it is a little challenging at first. Making a solid character is pretty difficult, so if you're looking to purchase this you definitely need to either find a friend who plays this or look at a guide online. All in all, I give this game a 10/10 because of it's awesome lasting appeal and great storyline.
Most Hacked Game Ever
Yes, Diablo 2 boasts free online multiplayer. It's so much fun playing with a bunch of hackers and bots. Glitches abound and legit players get kicked. The online play is garbage. Blizzard has given up even trying to police the realms, or fix the bugs that have existed since launch. The best example of this is the rampant spam bots on their realms. The bot comes into your game, spams a ton of messages and is off to do it to another game! You'll be spammed so much from so many bots that seeing the game screen is often impossible.
As for playing single player, it can be fun. Hack and slash your way through dungeons along the linear story line. Don't dream of sandbox play, just follow the story. The graphics, even taking their age into consideration, are average at best. 800 x 600 was standard at the time, so don't get excited. There is no eye candy.
Perhaps the most redeeming quality of this game is the sound, particularly the music. The music is well done and fits the settings and environments. If only this was a music CD!
All in all, this game is wasted potential. Blizzard HAS to work out bugs and hacks before releasing a product. It's no fun to play a game that takes 2 minutes for a hacker to get every item in game. Not to mention all the bots! It's amazing when there's so much spam that you can't even see the game area.
Avoid at all costs! Oh, and if you don't... Press N to clear all those spam messages...
I know this review is 10 years too late but with the soon release of Diablo III Im getting back into the Diablo Spirit!
This is a darn good game
Its one of those games that is hard to put down. Blizzards best game ever. I Cant Wait for Diablo 3. I'm even going to get the Steel Series Diablo 3 gaming mouse. Its legit check it out.
Wont run on Mac Lion
more of an error report/heads up. i upgraded my Mac to OS X Lion last month, went and got Diablo 2 yesterday, and it wont install. Apparently with Lion they removed the support for PowerPC which i guess this and those older blizzard games run on. asked blizzard and they verified it, wont run on OS 10.7. So if you have a mac and want this, check first to make sure it will run on your current OS. Or do boot camp. just letting you all know.
Just simply amazing.
Got this game was so stoked! It has so much replayability and i can say it kept me hooked for a loooong time! Amazing work done on this game by Blizzard. I recommend this for anyone seeking a fun and awesome RPG.
