I guess I was one of the weirdos that liked all 3 Diablos so far.
I thought it was great. Felt very Diablo to me, but with better QOL improvements.

The 3D doesn't look great, I haven't played Path of Exile for a long time but this reminds me of that more than D2. Though judging by some of the PoE videos I've seen of recent content it doesn't even look up the that standard.
Supposedly they'll have a 2D option they don't seem as eager to show off, higher resolution textures in D2 would be welcome but the old D2 works fine and looks pretty decent in higher resolutions so long as you don't go too high making things rather small on screen.
I don't know, even if this turns out decent I don't see it really comparing to the classic with mods like D2MultiRes/alternative, and PlugY, and BaseMod, and a Maphack. They add so many great features to the game and make it so customisable a re-release just won't be able to compete on those fronts. Then there's also the ability to mod the game yourself, some of which is pretty easy.
I feel like I should be excited for this, but even if they do a decent job of it I don't see it coaxing many away from the classic for long if at all,,,, unless we can play it on our phones...

Hopefully people have learned to wait until it ships after Warcraft 3 Reforged.

Eh. They managed to fuck up WC3 remaster which should have been the easiest pile of free money ever. Maybe they've learned some lessons, but probably not...
Which is probably why they ran out and bought the company that did one of the most successful faithful remakes of all time and gave this project to them.
