    not sure im overly enamored with it
    its clearly the best isometric style action RPG on the market, but im not sure it was worth the wait, i mean seriously? it doesnt seem like its added a ton of 'innovation' I usually expect better from blizz :)

    I actually like it. There are improvements to the game over D2, but it remains enough like D2, that it's a bit nostalgic - very good.

    Like the Monkey Island Special Editions, what D3 almost does is let you play a game you remember from your youth, without the disenchanting ****ty graphics. I've played the beta campaign as a monk so far (and I like it), and on the way with the wizard (good, but not as good IMO).

    The skill system is a bit... strange to be honest. I like that it effectively makes you think about your kit-out - whilst you can change mid-play, there is a cooldown before you can use the spells. It drastically reduces the number of skills you need to think about, which is good (especially so for PVP I suppose, although that's not really my thing). It reminds me a little of Guild Wars, in that you can only work with a limited selected at a time.

    They capped the populations on the servers at some point on Friday. Keep trying. It is a stress test weekend though, so I expect there to only be a couple of servers running, in order to ensure that the server is maxed out.

    I've only managed to play 5 mins of it so far, logged on this afternoon only for a message to come up say that they well be shutting down the server (I assume for patching). Haven't been able to log on since then :(

    However from what I've played of it, I like it - like D1 & D2 with updated graphics :)

    i completed it as a monk too
    personally i like the graphics, they were really nice, probably the same way i like Wows cartoony graphics, they just sit better with me
    and personally, if i can play minecraft, graphics obviously are not the be all and end all to me :)


    in other news, logging into my battle.net account for the first time this year shows me my wow account has been banned, im a little concerned about that, i have not played since November AND have the mobile dial in authentication, ****ing blizzard

    I suppose Blizz are not known for revolution though, they never have been :)

    I finally got in and was able to play up until level 6 then got booted out.. Initial thoughts, well I do like the game and I will probably get it.. Although I thought it would feel a lot better... I guess I am just used to WoW and that it feels different. I didn't get into D1 or D2 much so this type of game play is going to take getting used to.

    @Phoenix, my friend got his account banned too.. he had the mobile authenticator and everything.. Took 3 days to get back. I honestly don't know what they do. Was your account hacked by any chance?
