Played it... wow, it's a terrible dumbed down version of Diablo II with terrible execution of storyline.
What I mean by this
-No control over stats... even though they did the right things D2 did wrong (eg: Intelligence effects magic damage so actually has meaning for putting points into it rather than gearing your required mana)
-No control over skills... you just get them, gee thanks. Oh what, there will be choices to make? Awesome, was it in the beta? No.
-Character concepts just suck.... and the only one with any personality might be the Wizard, because its a weird combination of self-ego, but being nice to your henchmen too.
They tried to make a soap opera out of the lore, and it blows... your original player from Diablo boffed NPC X which created hero Y, and now you're just some completely unrelated schmuck who ran into the middle of all this drama... also the acting is like a season 1 of some terrible new drama... I mean, did you listen to the journals???... or did you try and block them out because most Saturday morning Japanese->English dubbed cartoons have better voice acting?
I've played this game before... it's called dungeon siege... they just blended in a bad and dumbed down version of DII with it (but with loading screens heh) while preventing me from running my own large party of adventurers.
and no I am not biased, I downloaded the Demo expecting something awesome... and got a steaming pile of "This is a worse version of an updated Darkstone (which was a good game a decade ago)"
oh, and a pre-emptive "I COULD design a better Diablo 3 than this crap, so suck it"
Edit: PS I forgot: Uniques and Champions LOOK BETTER in D2... now that is something terribad. (Seriously, really, a translucent blue glowing monster?!?!?!")
