I want to experience the story, but I'm not going to play the game

Any recommendations? Will watching all of the cinematics do the trick? Is there a series of videos that cover the cinematics and main quests?

I believe you, but I doubt that makes the cinematics uglier. I'm still curious.

if you can find all the cinematics then sure, they're enough, not much in the way of in-game dialogue, most people turn it off anyway.

watch the cinematics and i guess read a wiki or something about what you do on each quest


cause the cinematics wont be enough to completely tell whats happening although they are good

Just finished watching and reading along. I can see how it was disappointing, but I to be fair I did miss a lot by not seeing the in game stuff.

Mostly It just comes across as a generic epic fantasy that has little to do with the diablo world. It completely removes the heavens from the realm of mystery and turns it into a benevolent savior full of optimism and cotton candy.


Diablo's return seemed a bit contrived, considering all of the business involving prophecy and whatnot. Diablo also looked really... weird. All in all it wasnt terrible, it just wasnt good, and it wasnt really diablo.

IMO the only important thing you missed was Imperius being a jackass.

IMHO, best part of the story (aside from cool graphics) happened outside of cinematics.


*spoilers* Adria betraying Leah was my fave moment, aside from the a4 opening cinematic. Diablo's boobs still piss me off.

I mean, this doesn't coven everything, it misses the extremely slow walking woman trapped in the spider web in Act 1. But this is pretty much it... Sadly
