The on line engine of D3 is superior to anything other on the market.
High end Blizzard quality: fast, responsive, controlled and perfect interaction between you the player and THE avatar.
It runs circles around such games like D2, Dota, dota2, lol, TL, tl2, Poe etc...
The pvp patch will show D3 is up to the same responsiveness & quality as their other recent releases, SC2 and of course WoW.
Rest is history.
There are lots of problems with D3 but the artwork certainly isn't one of them. They did a beautiful job making the game from an artistic stand point. I still notice things when I stop and look around, and I've been playing for over 400 hours.
To be completely honest with you, and I'm really glad I can say this right now, but playing Diablo 3 for hours farming feels like it did in Diablo 2.
Really interesting, thanks for the link.
Everyone saying it looks better now, well, that's kind of a given. It's much newer, and technology marches onward at a ridiculous pace.
Tbh those screenshots don't make it seem very good and from the looks of some of those pictures they were planning the same lame story. So I don't see what was lost here.

I could reel off a massive list of things I don't like about d3, but visual style wouldn't be one.
Those look pretty bland and boring. Although I might have felt differently in 05.
To be quite honest.. I'd rather have played the other game in 2005 than this one in 2012. Yes, this one looks better now. The other one would've looked far better then than this does now.
Things are like they are; Regretting the past is pointless if there is nothing to learn.
Making the hue darker (same textures and colourscheme, just darker filters) and actually add the monsters and you're set.
I wonder what story they came up with back then. It sure can't be any worse than that of D3. That was predictable till the end.
WoW characters that need/deserve to get killed/punished/otherwise removed from the story: Tirion*, Thrall, Malfurion, Wrathion, Sylvanas, Jaina
Wow, that looks truly awful.
Straight out of the early 90s.
Oh my god what is that bullshit that i just saw in the links ?
Thank god we got an awesome looking game in exchange.
Honestly the only reason they had a reason to keep that old version was nostalgia. I doubt very many people would purchase a game in 2012 that looked like that.
<WHAR LEWTS PLZ HALp>
I'm bitter by default. Don't take it personally.
