Hows Path of Exile?

Was thinking of downloading it but was wondering how it is? Can I play it offline?
I know it's a lot like Diablo II but is it better?

It's online only, but it's great. Think of it as the true successor to Diablo II. You'll lose your mind in it for countless hours, as you learn the mechanics, farm for loot, level up, build your skill tree, play around with different characters, leagues and so fourth.

Seriously better than D3. Art's better, skill trees are a thing.

Admittedly the spell system is kinda boring despite their attempt at being different. Still ends up being spam 3 spells with X modifiers to get the most out of your class.

You can't play it offline but it's pretty damn solid.

Its a pretty cool game. Its lacking some of the polish of a game you gotta buy, but its still better then a lot of games you gotta buy. I think in its current state D3 is a lot better, but if need a D3 break you can easily enjoy Path of Exile.

Online only. Game seems solid when I played it before the major updates with the new act. So far the devs are very reasonable with what they are selling like more tabs/character slots and vanity items and they provide you with a good number of character slots and item tabs from the start.

It's okay. Pretty good for a F2P game.

It's good but I loath the mess of a skill tree.

First run through on Normal is great. Playing through it again on Cruel is a chore. Then playing on Merciless is just mindless grinding.
