R.A.W. dropped to 400. (1200 normally)
Played the demo... My thoughts.
Controls are good, not great. I thought there was some issues with the “hold to use” the more powerful version of your abilities but I finally dawned on me that it was the cool down causing it.
Information; the game does a good job of telling you what you need to know... Its very apparent rather or not item A is better than item B. Damaged being done or received is in a nice big font. Bigger enemies have life bars. Etc. They got this right.
Graphics, are good. Enemies show up in a slight pale red when obscured by the environment which is a really nice plus. There is no zoom in mode so you cannot really enjoy the character model as your items change about. (This might be on purpose as I've only seen new colors on the same object so far.)
Story; I guess I can see why people say its generic... but truth be told it looks to me like thought went into it and they took some chances... (I'm guessing the story gets lost in the hack and slash.)
Leveling Up; Truth be told. Its really darn slow even at low levels... I really think they made a mistake by doing this... You don't feel the push of just a few enemies more.
Saving; You can only save when you finish the current level/map... I can understand the need to finish a map to advance to the next one... but not being able to save my character's progress/equipment except when at the end of the level is a horrible idea.
Online Play; There is none. There is an achievement for starting a couch co-op game so there is a couch co-op mode for what its worth.
WTF Moments; Early on in the game/late in the demo there is a spot where you just get overrun with enemies... but any experienced Diablo player is going to fire potshots from the edge of the map (If not outright retreat from it) but you can escape from it.. and what you need to do is push forward through it. I ended up using all of my health potions/reincarnations... Though this might have been by design. I'm not sure. (I didn't push forward till the last life.)
So, I ended up buying it. 5 bucks, well, less than that as I buy MSP at a discount and I loaded up on points 9K for these sales hoping for three season passes to go on sale but only one has been mentioned so far, so I likely have a bunch of points to spare.) I've spent two hours on it and I'm enjoying it for what it is. (I'm also enjoying it more than I did the Diablo III beta... It really plays more like DI or DII.)
On one other thing I noticed that has no real barring on the game but is noteworthy... Its the first game I've played in a long time that didn't patch when I first started playing it.
