Diablo 3 - Reviews and More
We need to catch up on all things Diablo 3 - starting with GameBanshee's detailed review by Eric Schwarz:
Diablo III is a promise never fulfilled.I'll line-list a selection of other reviews here:
Giant Bomb - 5/5
GameSpy - 4/5
ActionTrip - 9.6/10
GameInformer - 9/10
GameSpot - 8.5/10
Joystiq - 5/5
PC Gamer - 90%
Gaming Blend - 4/5
Moving on, after reports of accounts being hacked and items stolen, Blizzard has responded with assurances of their security measures:
We'd like to take a moment to address the recent reports that suggested that Battle.net® and Diablo® III may have been compromised. Historically, the release of a new game -- such as a World of Warcraft® expansion -- will result in an increase in reports of individual account compromises, and that's exactly what we're seeing now with Diablo III. We know how frustrating it can be to become the victim of account theft, and as always, we're dedicated to doing everything we can to help our players keep their Battle.net accounts safe -- and we appreciate everyone who's doing their part to help protect their accounts as well. You can read about ways to help keep your account secure, along with some of the internal and external measures we have in place to help us achieve our security goals, at our account security website here: www.battle.net/security.Head over for the rest of the post and links to those apps.
Gaming Blend argues Diablo 3's Launch Fiasco Proves Video Game Journalism Fails, though I'm not sure of their exact point given their own review. Likewise, The Escapist argues You Should Be Mad at Diablo III's Always On DRM, though apparently the score should still be 4/5.
Rock, Paper, Shotgun continues their critical articles with Difficulty and Dumbness and Eurogamer argues why being always online can be good - and also bad.
Finally, the soundtrack is now available on iTunes.
