Is the experience I had for four hours. So I went into the options and switched my server to the European ones and played that way for a while. Soooooooo, once you actually get to play the game it is fuckin’ awesome okay? Just awesome.
Hit the jump for my first impressions.
Diablo 3 is super fun. Period. The powers look and feel great as a monk, every punch has a meaty feel to it and the animations vary enough that the attacks never feel stale. There’s always a new enemy, upgrade, technique, weapon, or piece of armor to find.
The dungeons are sweet and after playing for about 4 – 6 hours I haven’t finished Act 1 which I hope is a sign that the game will have a nice length to it. There are plenty of NPC’s to talk to and enough story to keep you interested.
I played with a friend and we encountered very little slowdown, although when we first entered a new area we had a bit for the first 5 – 10 seconds as the area fully loaded. Best thing about playing with a friend is each player gets their own gold and loot so you don’t have to fight with your friend over things.
All in all I am hyped to play more! Check it out and hopefully Blizzard gets all these launch hiccups taken care of, because they suck lol. Maybe in a week or two I will put out a full in-depth review, but until then have a good day!
