    Just give it a look. If you like it, then maybe you can shell out some more money for Diablo in the future.
    Agreed, and this will give Diablo some time to sort their shit out.

    Absolutely not.

    D3'd be worth about $20-$30, though. But not $60.

    Depends entirely on the amount of hours you can see yourself playing the repetitive content.

    -It's ~8 hours worth of story content to play through (a rough estimate for how long it would take a brand new player to complete normal mode). More like 4 for experienced players.
    -Reaching level 60 probably takes about 30 hours for new players. Playing through on a different class provides nothing new you didn't get the first time around. Except a few differences in the dialogue with followers.
    -At that point you grind out gold to buy stuff from the auction house and get better gear so you can kill stuff faster. The chance of finding anything useful for your class, which is not available on the AH for a pittance, is very low.

    I would recommend trying out TL2 first, but the lack of closed realm servers (no hacking) is a major turn off for that game.

    Its worth the $10. Dont like this price considering how many bots/hacks there are out there. 15mil gold pays for a new account...

    okay listen its worth 60 bucks if youre not one of these people who expect every game they buy to be a 10/10. i paid 60 bucks and i got about 70 hours of gameplay out of it. thats less than a dollar an hour for entertainment. i was a little disappointed because i played diablo ii for years, but it is what it is.

    its a fun game and i dont regret my purchase. just dont expect it to be gods gift to gaming like a lot of people did. its really, really not

    I only played The Bard's Tale (2004) and Diablo 3's free trial for games of that subgenre.
    No. Save your money and either buy Torchight 2 or get into Path of Exile's beta.

    I don't think it's worth it to be honest even for the $9.99 the game is just awful in everyway.

    No offense but the fluidity of combat in D3 is shit and I am not sure how anyone could argue otherwise. When you have a fast paced genre like an ARPG and then make the player deal with ridiculous rubberbanding (due to always on-line, server side connection stuff) and hitbox detection (herp derp "nobody should be able to dodge anything" because the entire game is a gear check) then you do NOT have fluid combat system. You have a seriously flawed one.

    I have yet to experience either of those , what I feel are game-breaking issues, in TL2 with over 200 hours in and a lot of that in the multiplayer.
