Blizzard has fundamentally ruined the playability of the original Diablo by removing your ability/responsibility to regularly, explicitly Save your game.
In the original Diablo, if you didn't explicitly Save your game at frequent intervals, you faced the likelihood of *real* loss (of time, accumulated treasure, attributes, etc.) if you were unexpectly killed. In the original, once you were under attack the attack was often so fierce that it was too late to Save -- you were dead before you could complete a Save. And, even if you did Save at that point, when you resumed play you resumed right back in the heat of battle and, appropriately, were likely to be slaughtered within a heartbeat. In other words, you faced something akin to real death when exploring the dungeon and that produced an element of real fear.
In Diablo II, your game is continuously, automatically "Saved" for you. You can get out of ANY difficult situation by summarily quitting play -- when you resume play you'll find yourself automagically back at your safe "base camp" with your character, and all accumulated treasure, inexpicably intact. The authors don't try to "explain" this bit of absurdity -- probably because they know they can't.
The problem is made even worse by the fact that the monsters -- at least in the first 3 quests, which is as far as I've gone so far -- are hopelessly outclased by your character from the get-go. In my first eight hours of play I haven't come close to dying once -- and, believe me, I've tried (anything to relieve the boredom).
I LOVED the original Diablo and I expected to love this sequel. I don't feel good panning this game but I'm SO disappointed. I expected to see more detailed graphics and plot (quests), but with the fundamentals of play preserved. Instead, graphics and game plot appear unimproved and game play has been absolutely butchered. ...

I played the original Diablo on the Mac and this version on a Wintel system. The game is varied and challenging. I tried the Barbarian class and found it to be a lot of simple, zombie smashing fun. If you like action in a fantasy setting Diablo II is a great ride.

This game (although somewhat old now) get's the 2001 Bytronix game of the Year award. For whatever that's worth. My personal favorite game at present. Be sure to get the expansion as well.

This is definitely the most addictive game ever released on the PC.First when i bought the game,i wasnt into this kind of RPG but the game sucked me in with its addictive and challenging gameplay.The internet features are excellent too.But be warned this game might be too addictive for some and may result in loss of sleep and concentration.Believe me i am not joking.This game took many hours out of my sleep and took some of my grades down.But its worth it because this is one of the most enjoyable,addictive,challenging and rewarding game ever.Half Life is not the best game on the PC it is this...No further words necessary...

This game is a very entriuging game. I know this 4 experience. This game contains little to no violence, unlike the box says. The only kind of "gore" the game has is maybe a corpse after u defeat an enemy, but that goes away farely quickly. TRUST ME, it is not violent in any way. Think of it as self defense. While you adventure in the game things attack you not nise-nersa. So allow your kids or whoever to have a good time and understand that games like this are very unviolent and totally over rated in the violence scale.

This game is the most addictive game you will ever play. So many things to do, 5 character classes, great graphics with 3d effects, so on and so forth. This is a must buy game.
