The vast majority of bad reviews are from the first or second day the game was out, there were some server problem which are now pretty much over, it runs fantastically.

A bunch of other reviews are complaining that the game is too easy. Well those people need to try a setting other than normal "easymode". I've beaten normal on a Hardcore permadeath character and I've beaten nightmare on a regular character, lemme tell yah, Hell difficulty is no joke, it's harder IMO than in D2. I haven't yet made it to Inferno yet, but from what i hear no one has even beaten it.

Ignore the haters, try the game for yourself.

I downloaded this game 8 hours after its official release, which took a while to be downloaded and to be installed.
Eventhough I was unable to play immediately because of the server log on issues, but when these issues were resolved and I was able to play, the game is simply awesome far better than diablo 2 the graphics are amazing.
But i still can not understand why you have to be online to play a solo game alone in your room with no one watching.
Still need to play more so I can write about the cons and pros of the game

Can't wait for the EXPANSION PACK

I am going to keep this simple, because my feelings on the issue are simple and straightforward. My friend and I completed D2 online together and I enjoyed the fun, challenge and comradery. D2 graphics were simplistic in design though artistic wize impressive. I am glad D3 is 3D, and not D2. I think they created a masterpiece between photorealism and surrealism, and thats fine by me, given its still directX9 ( not 10/11) and playable on so many computers. I am not going to sit here and whine about tree points as what is here is fine with me because I do point grinding less, and enjoy the game more. I think the mood is set wonderfully and gets darker as you go, and I think the AH idea is wonderful, similar to WoW. At least you have an option , if you don't feel like waiting for certain gear.

I know some hate that its online only, but while Im sure its partly for DRM issues, its also to cut down on cheating, and that is just fine with me.

So to recap; I love the visuals as they are def. no longer SO 2d, I love the resolution , effects and overall good mood , and by the way, this is a gear grinding rpg , as if D1/2 weren't, and as if any other rpg on the market, isnt that at the end of the day.

Games are rarely released with zero bugs, and this will get updates and address some peoples concerns as times goes on. In its current state, it does what D2 did for us, which was entertain, challenge and keep me going back to rinse/repeat. I do it for comradery , and that my gaming with friends basically started with D2 experiences, and D3 is a worthy successor.

The gameplay is fun, the characters are diverse, and the storyline is very immersive. Graphics are smooth and the effects look pretty darn cool. I've only gotten to level 10, but I foresee countless hours of fun ahead. Well worth the annual pass I signed up for to play WoW in any regard. I might be shelling out another $60 to buy my wife a copy so we can play together as well.

I understand the frustration of having to have an internet connection to play, if you aren't able to do that. It can be a bummer. It makes no difference to me, however. I like being able to play with my friends from WoW; I like that I could potentially make actual money in this game; I like that no one can cheat. If you're looking for a solely single-player game, D3 is not for you. Most of us who've paid any attention to this release knew that going in, though. I hear that the release wasn't very smooth. I wouldn't know. I was sleeping at 2 a.m. Tuesday morning. I've never experienced a bug free release of a big online game. I don't think anyone has.

TL;DR: If you're looking for a fun game to play solo or with friends, with an immersive story and great gameplay, and you have a steady internet connection, D3 will not disappoint.

This game is really good, but the reason it gets bad reviews is because of the server issues, the servers were down for a bit the first day so now everyone is butthurt over it, dont give it a bad rap because of the server issues.
Now from what i played it was really good, it did justice to its previous games.
Great gameplay awesome graphics. It was basically just Diablo 2 with better graphics.
Blizzard makes great games, but people expect too much, mistakes happen some times and people freak out on blizzard, i mean what do you expect to happen when a game thats been in the making for 10 or so years has all these people going on the server all at once. Be patient.

This has been a long wait and I am so happy that I can actually have my hands on this game. Blizzard takes forever to put out their game but when they do they are amazing. The gameplay is super smooth and animations are interesting enough to not be predictable. The storyline sounds a little ridiculous on paper but is executed very well and the lack of off-line play is the only complaint that I see valid but for me I have a constant connection so I don't care. Join friend is really easy and the game loading times are almost non-existent. I have to cut this review short to I can get back to it... bottom line: ridiculously well done and well worth the wait!

Based off of the original Diablo and Diablo 2 this is a fine sequel which I have played for a bit.
From what I have discovered these are the pros and cons:

Pros
- nice graphics\animations and music.
- gameplay is very similar to the first two games which makes this a big plus.
- co-op and online play.
- item crafting.

Cons
- Lots of bugs on release day which mainly affects online play from what I have experienced.
- You must always be connected to the internet to play this game. Even single player. This is a form of DRM IMO.

If the two CONS do not bother you and know that bugs WILL be fixed then take the early dive and buy the game but only if your a fan of hack n slash and the first two games. It's very well done in that regard.

Once again, great sequel. 3 stars for the game -2 stars for bugs and DRM.

Could gain another star in my book once they fix the bugs. I will never give it a full 5 stars because of the DRM "must be online" requirement.

I understand that Diablo 3 has had a horrible launch but what do you expect? Millions of people are trying to log in at the same time you can never be prepared for that... It takes time for something this big to get stabilized. Honestly, I praise them I would of expected much worse...

In the past 2 days gotten a good 7-8 hours in and it's just full of fun. I've played Diablo 2 and it couldn't be more similar and a friendly familiar feeling you get when you play. The graphics are fairly sharp and the sound in tremendous. However the dialogue is a bit cheesy, still quite intriguing to listen to though and the voice acting could have been better but it works out. If you've played Diablo sequels before then you'll realize the more you progress the more similarities you see in game play, scenario and monsters(with different names) with texture upgrades. I still have many hours to play but there's this feeling that I might not be hooked like I was to Diablo 2. Character skill customization barely exists because everything is learned for you. It isn't as punishing as the earlier sequels since you can try out the skills, if you don't them like it just pick another from the few you get. The few skills you do get start to branch off into different special effects and are quite interesting. It definitely gets harder, it's always easy in the beginning but as you get more and more into the action I guarantee you'd be either dead or panic because your hp gets so low. I can't when I get into harder difficulties this is just the beginning. I hope my attention is held for the long run when PVP is integrated into the game and the Real Money Auction House makes me $$$.

You may say I'm brainwashed by nostalgia but Blizzard has never disappointed me with their games, but I must say those bastards get more and more greedy with these prices!!!
