Summary

Hack n' Slash Heaven

The Good

You get a sword. You go down a dungeon. You chop anything that moves. Any questions?

Very fine graphics. Very cool music. Very easy interface (yes, go ahead and leave home without your keyboard).

After Blizzard stunned the world with Warcraft II, I wasn't sure they could do it again in another genre. Diablo convinced me they could.

The Bad

Nothing really. Replay value is limited but that is part of the attraction. It's simple, but it's fun. Beat the game with three different classes and move on to the next good one on the shelf.

The Bottom Line

Let's say its 2 am in the morning. You want to play a game, but you don't want to think. You just want to click away with your mouse in a game with cool sound and graphics. You just want to be entertained without doing too much. Diablo will be your friend...
