Just barely made it to this high rating; it has its share of flaws. However, it's more than worth the price, and has replay value galore! Action/RPG gamers will love it.
Diablo II is addictive, and as such it has the power to undermine emotional stability, corrupt daily routines, and break up loving families. The wise thing is just to say NO. But hey, that’s for wimps. If you have an understanding husband or wife, and a strong will to survive, go ahead and give it a try. Just remember to hug your kids, pat your dogs, and kiss your loving spouse good-bye. You won’t see them again for weeks.
The full package of Diablo II results in an addictive experience that has already captured millions of players in its grasp and will undoubtedly entertain thousands of Mac users in the years ahead.
Diablo II is a terrifically entertaining game with only one drawback: the Save feature occasionally forces you to revisit areas you've already trod and face defeated enemies again. If you liked Diablo, you'll love Diablo II.

That damn Diablo is at it again. Not that anyone is really complaining.
If this game isn’t the best sequel of all time, then it’s in the top three. Not only is the second chapter of this tale great on its own, it is in every way a serious improvement over its predecessor. Blizzard, long known for providing quality titles for the Mac platform, has yet to let us down. Granted, the making of Diablo II took a long time and it does (like any game) have some things folks can gripe about, in the end, this game is sure to be on millions of hard drives for a long time to come.
So if you've got the yen to kill, kill, kill with pretty graphics, Diablo II provides everything you need, including a good story. But if you're not a multiplayer kind of guy or want something more interactive, you might want to try Baldur's Gate instead.
Le mythique DIABLO qui avait fait séduit les foules reviens à la puissance 2. Après deux ans d'attente, un bêta-test à échelle planétaire et une hype médiatique sans précédent, le dernier jeu de Blizzard se pose comme le jeu de l'année. Mais est-ce vraiment légitime ?
Il y aura fallu attendre de long mois avant qu'enfin Diablo II soit disponible. Retardé, repoussé sans cesse, Blizzard a constamment joué avec les nerfs de millions de fans, tous cramponnés sur StarCraft et Brood-war, derniers titres en date. C'est vous dire si Blizzard joue gros sur ce coup là : l'erreur est interdite !
Diablo II leaves the dungeon behind (for the most part) in favor of a camping holiday: the standard Ye Olde Westerne Foreste, an Arabian desert, a West Indies Jungle, and finally, Hell, which doesn't look as much like the Atlanta International Airport as one might figure. All beautifully (though darkly, and I mean this in terms of being able to see the thing) rendered. The sunlight and weather changes, but this has no real effect on gameplay, other than to cause me to question the intelligence of a "hero" who wanders in a thunderstorm wearing plate mail armor and carrying a spear upright. Shades of Goofus and Gallant.
An admirable sequel to a groundbreaking game. Familiar enough for ease of gameplay, yet challenging enough to satisfy veterans.
