Having gone back and played most of the way through with both Demon Hunter and Barbarian, I find that my opinion pretty much remains the same. The game is just rather boring to me. They've taken away the ability to build a character in the way that you want, and just made all characters of a class the same. I want more choices, not less. I want more customization options, not less. While the combat feels about right, the game around it seems to have regressed.
Also kind of funny that Demon Hunter is so limited in weapons while the wizard can run around with swords and axes and stuff.
If gems are available, that will help somewhat, but it's still pretty flimsy. I'm sticking with my assessment. It's a mediocre game. I'll wait for the other games in the genre to come out and see what they have to offer. Can't justify 50-60 bucks for this. This would be a Steam sale game for me if it was actually sold that way. $20-$30 tops.
Ten years for this? Seriously?
