I’ve admittedly only been playing this game for a day or so, but so far it seems extremely dull. The only readon I got it was because it was touted as teh Diablo Killer. But this game is so much more dull than D2.
For those that haven’t played it yet, imagine D2 without the clicking. Sounds great right? Well, its really not because instead of clicking you just sit there and watch your char do it for you. He will continue to hack away at shit and defend himself like you think you would want. But once you get to play this game you realize that other than clicking on the moving mobs you never really had much to do in D2, and even less in this game.
There is no skill tree or anything similar, so character development seems to be very dull as well. You just get a point here and there, which are automatically allocated to certain basic skills or stats.
So far anyway, it seems that there is no way to be a pure caster at the outset. 'Once you are surrounded by 5 mobs or so your spells just cast too slow to be effective, so you must resort to your dagger, axe or whatever other boring weapon you have equipped.
My biggest gripe with this game though is by far the lack of a useful “waypoint” system. I have been playing for at least 3- 4 hours, and everytime you log off, you must start at the begining of the game until you hit a certain level. I have not hit that level yet apparently and it is a drag because I have ran down the same path about 20 times and killed the same monsters a 1000 times.
This game also does not randomly generate maps or dungeons so you do the exact same stuff over and over, in the exact same places.
The weapons, so far anyway, are very boring and lame. Same goes for the armor.
I just can’t see what people like about this game over D2. It seems inferior in every way except the graphics. And I happen to like the 2d graphics in D2.
Anyone else have a different opinion on this game?
(How the heck do you get to use nature magic? I have yet to find a nature spell I can cast at 0 skill lvl so my nature skill is stuck at 0)
