The fact you havin't even played the game and basing you're judgments on just 1 video of this game pretty much shows your stupidity, and ignorance. I have been playing Diablo 3, it's polished and it's an"ok" game, but it certainly isn't the second coming of jesus. Diablo 3's zones are smaller and linear compared to the 2nd one the classes are also linear. Diablo 2 was a 10x better game, developed by people who knew what the fuck they were doing. I've also been playing Path of the Exile and it has waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay more choices you can do with you're class. Diablo 3 lacks in that area because every class in Diablo has the same exact skills. The only thing that makes you differnt from other players is what gear you have and what passive skills you choose. In Path of the Exile you can be anything you want, regardless of what class you choose, you can even be a necromancer.
I can clearly see that this game cannot compare to Díablo 3, because D3 is FAR SUPERIOR!!! Of you pay enough attention you will see three important aspects this game is lacking: 1) lack of enemies: i saw just four ay the most!! 2) lack of powers: The powers seem so BASIC and boring compared to what i have seen in D3!!! And 3) lack of fluidity: The game looks choppy and laggy. After seeing one single video of this game, i have had enough arguments to NOT EVEN BOTHER ON DOWNLOADING IT, EVEN IF IT IS FOR FREE!!!!!
I don't think this game looks better than diablo 3. All the armor looks the same and it needs a minimap.
I have been playing the beta for a while now and it is a pretty good game. There are some issues such as lag. Just like Diablo III you have to be connected constantly. The refilling potions are a great concept but I do not like that all classes have the same skills (because of gems). Overall it's ok but hey it is free.
This "Looks" good, but the Free to Play is giving me bad vibes. Anything Free to Play generally sucks or tries to nickle and dime you to death with small fees that add up to HUGE amounts of money. Which kind is this?
For Free-to-Play this game looks better than Diablo III in terms of graphics and atmosphere, in my opinion.
I've been playing this game for a few months in beta. It's quite good. The first thing ignorant people like Shinteikun will say is "Diablo rip off!". They are correct, except that GGG have created a true successor to D2. This game is dark, bloody and gritty the way Diablo 3 should have been. It's open beta this weekend March 30-Apr 1, check it out. The best part? It's free to play, with online co-op. The barter system is the worst part of the game IMO, but if you liked D2, you owe it to yourself to check out PoE.
if they would show me videos from D3 and this then ask "which one do u think is D3" i would say this one ofc, atmosphere feels far better and dark
@sirzod It appears Gamespot needs to update their hardware.
@esricardo999999 1) This is a demo video of a class in action. If they had more enemies on screen you wouldn't see anything. Look at the title next time.
2) There are far, far more powers in this game than any video shows. Sure, they lack the same flash as, say, Torchlight and D3, but they have far more substance, variety, and practicality than D3. And they pack a serious punch, especially when you're playing.
3) The video is in poor quality. The game itself is remarkably fluid and the animations are superb. Not to mention the graphics are amazing, especially for a debut indie game that is ALSO free to play, and are still great looking even despite those facts. and it is much closer, atmospherically, to D1 and D2 than D3 appears to be.
Have fun with D3 and avoiding this gem. Hope your experience doesn't get spoiled knowing you're missing out on something awesome.
