Have you ever undergone the experience of all your wishes come true at the same time? Well, I have and I acknowledge Diablo 3 for this heavenly miracle. This is true on multiple levels. First of all, when I was bored of Starcraft, I chose Diablo. It was and is everything I wished for. But my love for the series will not generate a friendly bias in this review, because the series had taken a fall for the worse according to me sometime back.
Diablo is the game that sort of gave birth to its own Genre : The Hack and Slash game, although similar models had been attempted in the past. Diablo was the first game I played till the very end, it was so engaging and the replay value was high for me, even more than Age of Empires and Warcraft 2 at the time. This game had an even more successful sequel known as Diablo 2 and its expansion known as Diablo 2: Lord of Destruction. Once again an epic game truly taking the series a huge leap forward in interface and gameplay aspects.
My hopes were soaring in the sky as I waited anxiously for the sequel…
Day after day, my calendar grows short,
I am waiting for Diablo 3.
I have saved up my cash and sold my watch,
The game isn’t for Free.
When will the game release,
Why this incredible tease,
I pray to the time god on my knees,
I am sure my torment he sees.
Thus I was anxiously waiting.
Anxiety is suffocating.
One fine day, I woke up to the fact.
The game was released sealing the contract.
To be Continued.
