Title
The campaign was quite average. I didn't really mind the Season 1 nerf update to be honest. I felt it was far too easy until then. I was just walking through everything.

Getting new weapons and armour was pretty tedious. So many pointless stats to look through.

Really nice looking but shallow game.

Title
It's hard to write a review about this game and my impressions without getting into a lot of detail, but I'll try. My initial impressions were glowing praise, yet as I've spent more time in the end game, the game play issues have become increasingly apparent. I think people will have a lot of fun playing through the campaign (easily the best aspect of the game) and initial leveling, but may start to feel the pangs of boredom around level 50. The end game starts to feel extremely repetitive, but lack of content is only part of that issue. After all, these types of games are all about the gameplay loop. Without getting too detailed, level scaling, itemization, and a lackluster skill tree are the biggest factors as to why this game feels more and more like a chore as you get further away from the campaign. End game content will hopefully be addressed (they've already addressed some key issues with nightmare dungeons), but I don't see core gameplay aspects being addressed without a major overhaul in the game's fundamental design, which unfortunately translates to a rapidly waning feeling of progression and overall purpose in the end game.

Due to a noticeable plateau after the campaign, and the devs pushing the playerbase towards seasonal content over the eternal realm (gotta make that battle pass money, after all), my suggestion to all those interested is to wait until the price drops considerably. Perhaps by that time they will have addressed some of the more glaring issues. As it stands, a 3 for now. The campaign was solid, but after spending roughly 30ish hours with the game, I don't feel a strong desire to continue playing. Personally, I plan to check back around end of the year, maybe early 2024 to see where the game is at. Until then pick up Grim Dawn instead - the base game is far cheaper and miles more rewarding. Or you can play Path of Exile for free.

On the plus side, it's better than Diablo 3 (but D2 is still the undisputed, almighty king of the franchise).

Title
As easy (and morally just) as it is to hate Blizzard, they knocked it out of the park here. While there's nothing entirely new or groundbreaking in Diablo IV, everything that it does have is so airtight and polished that you can't help but get addicted to its very long gear chase, especially when killing demons feels and sounds so, so good. It also helps that the game is utterly massive, with a map that can rival recent open world gems both in size and structure. Team 3 has even managed to substantially improve in areas they used to struggle in, most notably in narrative, delivering a really solid campaign with some likeable characters and a wonderfully grey villain in Lilith. All-around, I'd highly recommend Diablo IV to almost anyone interested in action games, amateur or veteran, as long as you're okay with selling a bit of your soul to the devil.
