Looking at the # reviews/star breakdown, if you eliminate the bogus 1 star reviews, what you have is a legitimate 4 star game.
Let me restate that: This is a bona-fide 4 star game! (I gave 5 stars to offset the ridiculous # of 1 star reviews.)
I purchased this game for $29.99 during the black Friday deals. Even at the current price, it's still a great buy IMHO.
The graphics are a significant step-up from D2 (as would be expected after all these years.) The cinematics are beautifully done. The story is quite engrossing. The enemies are varied and challenging depending on how much "monster power" I use....nice risk/reward there. The auction house is actually a lot of fun. I have yet to get a legendary drop, but I've been able to use some gold to buy items to help augment my character.
I have had ZERO connectivity issues and ZERO issues playing on Windows 8.
Yes there are no "skill trees" as in D2. No problem. I don't miss 'em that much.
In summary, this is a great effort by Blizzard. I hope they make an expansion as before with D2. I hope it's more than 1 act as well ;-)
My husband and I are wrapping up our 3rd month of the Fast Metabolism Diet. We were searching for a path to good health and weight loss, and this has fit our bill. He is 71, and while in excellent health, weighed 290 pounds 3 months ago. I am 59, was moderately overweight, but battling high cholesterol. When the medication made me lose an excess of my hair, it was time to get down to the business of our nutrition. He was always afraid he would have to be hungry on a "diet", and I did not want to eat weird things, not to mention I just did not know what to cook everyday. I've always known someday I would have to address my cravings for sweets, and I would be lying if I told you I was past that, though I am happy they are quite manageable now.
Three months later, he has lost 40 pounds and I have lost 20 (right at my original goal) with cholesterol numbers all well-within normal ranges. Both of us are elated to be eating plenty of delicious--real--food, and enjoying shopping for smaller clothes (I am a size 4 pant now, down from size 10). We have learned to concoct our own recipes and meals, and try to stay within the 3-phase structure of the diet. However, we no longer stress if we mess up or have to stray due to an unusual event. We just pick right up with the next meal.
Admittedly this eating plan intimidated me at first. I was afraid of all the cooking, and honestly, it was a bit confusing. Before we embarked on it (partly due to extensive summer travel plans), it took me about 6 weeks to summarize it and internalize what was going on. Looking back, I believe that was fear of the unknown because it seems second nature now. Knowing the effort leads to success is worth it beyond measure.
Played the previous versions and loved them and was not disappointed by this one. I did not get it as soon as it was released as I knew they would have problems right out of the gate, which is also why I bought the actual boxed version, even though most games I buy and download via Steam, Origin and Gameplay. I only had one connection problem in the three or so weeks I've been playing Diablo III. If you were a fan of the previous versions, you should like this one, too. If you're expecting something mind-blowing, you may be disappointed, but I found this one thoroughly enjoyable.
I'll keep this brief and to the point.
At first (way back in '94) I was underwhelmed when I heard it. I get some of the criticisms that it seems less provocative than some earlier work.
But after 18-ish years of listening to it I realize it's glory. from concept to execution it is a masterpiece. As good as their pinnacle effort "Momentary Lapse of Reason" which suffers from much of the same narrow-minded criticism.
Admittedly I am in the Gilmour camp in general, and tend toward the more considered and crafted pieces but this album just never gets old. In fact, it still sounds pretty fresh today. I still remember watching the High Hopes video on the enormous circular screen on that tour and feeling completely overwhelmed. As an aside, I think the visuals of Storm Thorgerson deserve more credit in the creative alchemy that is Pink Floyd.
