Question from Don_Patch
Why so many mixed ratings?
Do the people who loved the first two games just hate the third? Or why are there so many mixed reviews.
This question is open with pending answers, but none have been accepted yet
Because everyone has their own opinion. i like the game a lot. very good replay value and nice visuals. some people think the graphics are outdated and some think they aren't. it all just comes down to a matter of opinion.
What Pat said, and theres also those that would rather Solo play be offline and those that side with Blizz for forcing the whole game (Solo included) to be online 100% of the time
Because blizzard accommodated to all the new f**s, and not the old schoolers that waited twelve years.
See au_s's response for your answer. Heaven forbid Blizzard decided to change things up and create a new game instead of D2 with better graphics. This alienated a lot of the old school fans who feel that Blizz made this game for newbies, plus the addition of the auction house has kind of broken the experience for many because it's just too easy to buy your way to a powerful character instead of spending countless hours farming gear (is that really a bad thing?)...
All that said, I've played since day one of the original game and I still love this one. Is it D2? No, but it is still an excellent game that is tons of fun, especially with a couple of friends.
As I read zeppo_basic's response I was inclined to disagree initially. But the gist is correct. There are also other factors, such as online only gameplay (even in single player) which alienated a lot of folks and when the game first started there were a LOT of connection issues and so disgruntled players started rating the game whatever the lowest score was possible on various sites.
It did The AH / RMAH did alienate a lot of folks I'm sure however I'm not convinced it is a bad idea (the AH anyhow) as people would spend money and get scammed back in the D2 days.
I'm in agreement with zeppo_basic essentially including the fact that I've played since day one and I have a lot of fun playing it. As he said, "is it D2? No" but it's still a good game that will only improve (lets hope) :)
Those who loved the first 2 games have varied opinions on the 3rd. Most of us are kinda disappointed on the vast changes in the game. Can't adjust your own stat points and no skill points to pick out how you want your skills to be like are probably the 2 major points.
Then there's the whole gotta be online to play the game, even if you just want to play the game alone. That can get kinda frustrating if your connection is bad. I know it's to try and help stop cheaters and things, but that's not gonna happen.
