Rated 10 out of 10 by Patronus Greatest series of all time.
Everything about Diablo, Diablo II, and the expansion set Diablo II: Lord of Destruction is excellent. Starting with the original Diablo in 1996, Blizzard introduced us all to a sublime mixture of role playing and action which revolutionized gaming and spawned many copy cats for years to come. The sequal did not disappoint as Diablo II expounded on the success of the original with even more characters, spells, quests, maps, items, monsters and improved graphics/AI. Additionally, the expansion Lord of Destruction, added a 5th act and a new pair of characters and a slew of new quests, weapons, and monsters. Blizzard continued to fine tune the game through patches that not only made the gameplay even more seamless but also added new content. Bottom line: If you are looking for a classic series to get into for the sheer joy of RPG action at its finest, look no further and purchase this battle chest. But be warned, you will lose many hours of your life to this extremely addictive line of games. Bring on Diablo 3!!
Rated 9 out of 10 by D.M 16 classic rpg awesomeness
Diablo 2 is a very good classic rpg game. Even though the graphics is not that perfect you will get used to it quickly and start having fun playing it. During there yearly sale at first i wanted fallout 3 or warcraft 3 but they ran out on warcraft 3 for the week and i decided to save up for fallout 3 goty version. When i was about to leave I saw the Diablo 2 in the sale section and start looking at the box. A gamestop worker came up to me to definitely get this and I took his word and never regretted buying this. Now about the game Diablo 2 controls at first you not used to it if you started playing but you catch on quick. The manuel on the back explains what button does what so you can check it out if you still dont understand the controls. Story is great and you have 7 classes including the expansion. You got Amazon, Barbarion, Necromancer, Paladin and Sorceror. Expansion: you have Assassin and the Druid. I picked Necromancer and its a good class to play. Its a great game to play for a long time and now I cant wait for the next Diablo game when its out.
Rated 7 out of 10 by MontySnake Diablo 2 is Dated
Diablo 2 is one of my Favorite games from the past as a Mac Person, However, This game will not run on Intel Macintosh computers running OSX10.4 or greater, in spite of claims it can still be rendered in "Software mode". A major disappointment to leave a favorite game like this behind, unless Blizzard decides to write a Universal patch for this game. However, if you are still running an older G4/G5 Mac,or a PC, this game should run just fine, and it's one of my most favorite "Hack n slashers" out there. I hope Blizzard is listening and writes a Universal patch for this Game, i'd hate to see this classic adventure go by the wayside. Perhaps it is time for a Diablo 3???? Blizzard seems to only care about one thing...which is "WoW" , but this is not what this post is about, It is about Diablo, so if you have a newer Mac, Don't get this, unless you have a PC to play on. Or run under "Bootcamp".
Rated 9 out of 10 by Nhymn DIABLO II LOD <:]
I have had this game for over 4 years now. I started with Diablo and have worked my way to LOD. I love the game but over the years it has gotten to easy. I think when Diablo 3 comes out it will be a better game again. The PvP is fun you can do a lot with it, also fun to do party vs party PvP (4 on 4). The PvM however is good. There is only really 2 characters in the game that can kill every Monster in the game without a Mercenary or a teammate. Hammerdin and Bonenecro/Bone Summon Necro. I do love the addition of the Ladder. Makes the competition a lot better. Gives people a reason to lvl past 90. The only downfall of the game is spamming by web sites who try to sell gear on the game. I wish battlenet could do something about that to try to minimize it. Maybe make it impossible to rush people to hell mode by making a mandatory level for Baal quest in Norm and NM?
Rated 10 out of 10 by 1Pac The best computer games IMO
I remember way back when I first played this back in 2000 on my OLD Windows ME... My cousin showed me this game and my mind was blown away because I wasn't used to seeing such gore and violence in games and wouldn't even play it because it had Diablo as the titular character... but I got hooked on it and finished it in about a month (was like 10 back then) Then my cousin showed me Diablo II and I instantly installed it on my computer and finished it with a Barbarian. Then Lord of Destruction came out and I bought it with allowance that I had saved up in anticipation and finished it with my Barbarian since he was my first character. I was instantly impressed by all the new stuff they had added like a larger stash and inventory and the new chapters. Fast forward 9 years and I'm still playing Diablo II LoD.
Definitely the best computer game to date IMO. Should really give this game a shot, and I swear you will not be able to put it down until your clicking hand gets so sore you can't even click anymore. The only thing though, is that it's really difficult if you don't spend your talent points right or use key bindings.
Rated 10 out of 10 by BeeJay No Contest... Best PC Game Of All Time
It's been eight years since D2 hit the PC world and it's stronger now than ever with the announcement of D3 coming. Considering its time of origin this game does more than make up for its lack of high end graphics. With countless item options and a replay value that can't be ignored this game set the standard for what we see today. Fast game play, intricate customization, and limitless replay value are what make this game immortal. Blizzard has been know to produce quality games that include, Warcraft, World of Warcraft, and Starcraft. Blizzard creates games for themselves, not for other companies like Flagship did for EA. This allows them to not rush to meet deadlines, ultimately leading to superb games. Thier titles remain solid throughout time unlike some titles that die out fast. Bottom line is that its the best game for the best price, enough said.
Rated 9 out of 10 by Odk Max Diablo 2's Blizzard - Great Game
Diablo 2 is one of the best online pc games. The selection of characters, bosses, and animations are great. The xpansion pack really supports the gameplay and includes two new (not so well created) characters - the druid and assasin. The druids and assains are okay but they're not like the original characters that are great. I personally love the barbarian character but many of them are good. This game has great add-ons to your character and skills to chose from. The pvp in this game (player vs. player) isnt that great, but you can get a whole party into a game and just rock out some demons and monsters. Then we go with diablo, he's a fun boss to beat but extremely hard to defeat without help. If you also play with the expansion pack, You may get an extra act, and an extra boss - Baal - diablos brother. So enjoy this game. Overall I'd rate Diablo 2, 8.5
Rated 9 out of 10 by Ryan Bradford True Classic Game
Diablo 2 is a great game if you are into RPG's (Role Playing Games). The game is great fun online and always has a lot of players. The Quests are fun, the story is epic, great challenge, and the character customization is spectacular. Really, Who doesn't like finding rare armors and killing demons! This Game being 5+ Years old is still pretty popular, there is never not an empty realm. If you want to play a game that actually takes skill and time to beat then Diablo 2 is your game. D2 isn't just a game where you buy and beat in less then 24 hours, it takes time to build you character up to make him/her unstoppable!Pros: Great Fun, Lots of People, Storyline, Character Customization, Online Play, Challenging. Cons: Really Old so graphics are below Par, Bots spamming really makes online play annoying.
Rated 10 out of 10 by MasterShake1441 Really Good
I bought this game because I needed a good offline game to play on an upcoming road trip. I started playing and after about 10 minutes I knew I would love it. I just started but I know I am going to be playing for a while. I downloaded the expansion pack, but I haven't been able to play it yet, I can't wait though. I would really recommend this to someone who likes to play good RPG's. I have been playing RPG's for years and this is one of the best. I cannot wait until the third diablo comes out, but that won't be probably until middle or late 2010. Still I have diablo and diablo 2 to play in the mean time. Hope everyone who reads this hurries up and runs out to get it. Oh and also It plays on almost every computer. All you need is a 3d graphics card and you are ready.
Rated 10 out of 10 by yakimajonny Great Game, But False Advertisement!
I played this game for hours on end when I was younger and couldn't help myself to buy the battle chest to add to my collection of awesome games. The only problem was that this website advertised that the battle chest included the original (first Diablo) in the battle chest. When my order came by UPS I noticed that this was not the case. I had bought the battle chest from Gamestop.com only for the reason that it advertised that the first Diablo was included in the battle chest. I am happy with having Diablo II and the expansion, but am unhappy that the battle chest did not include what it advertised. If you want to order the Diablo Battle Chest and specifically expect to have the first Diablo included in it this site is not the site to order from!
