Total BS. The ease of running around in Act I Normal compared to running around in Act V Hell is considerable. Especially if you aren't dealing with a fully twinked out character.
Yeah, the idea that Diablo never gets difficult is insane. Of course, it's the cheap variety of difficulty:
Up monster HPs + nerf player stats = EXTRA DIFFICULTY!
but Hell diff is seriously not for the faint of heart.
One thing I really missed in Diablo 2 was being able to access Hell diff even if you hadn't completed Nightmare diff. In Diablo 1 it was awesome to just go from normal to hell, be sweating your ass off because one hit would kill you, but at the same time getting totally obscene xp per skeleton kill. (something like 8K per skellie.)
