The game was pretty unimpressive for the first few hours. After you start getting more skills and the story unfolds, it starts getting more interesting. It wasn't until around the time that I hit level 12 or so that the game started picking up. --- I asked God for a bike, but I know God doesn't work that way. So I stole a bike and asked for forgiveness.
Can't say I had any actual expectations to begin with but for the most part I am loving how I can just play the game and enjoy it without fear of my min/max nature kicking in and trying to horde attribute/skill points so that I'll be more effective at the higher level.
Some stuff that I found to be tedious are gone (i.e. carrying Town Portal and Identify Scrolls). You can't have folks enter your public game and "ruin" it by porting straight to a boss and killing him/her before you get there. "Rushing" seems as easy as joining a friend's game with a further along save point and from there I think you have access to all the previous quests even if you didn't complete em.
Overall I'm really liking these changes over Diablo II. Can't say I was a hardcore Diablo II player and was probably more along the line of a casual one. Maybe that's one reason I'm really liking the current state of the game. Not counting the midnight release I haven't had any notable issues with logging on and if a server restart needs to happen I just use that as a break to take care of stuff around the house. --- "You must gather your party before venturing forth" "Go for the eyes Boo!
