Sacrifice your precious hours to the god of compulsion

This is the first time Diablo has come to Xbox, so here's a brief description of what it is. Diablo is like staring into a spinning black and white spiral. It's polished, seamless, hypnotic.... read more

Only the loot can make me happy...this'll do nicely until GTA V is released.

Great review as always El Loggo, but i gotta say bro, even though it really doesn't mean a lot in the scale of things, it does feel like you gave it a 9 and 1 down mark against your better judgement, almost like you were searching hard because you were faced with giving a dungeon crawler a 10/10. Your review reads 'this game is flawless', your score reads 'I needed to find something wrong as there is no such thing as a perfect game. Not that I actually care, your quality review is far more worthy than some arbitrary number, but even so, it was a little surprising.

A game can be flawless without getting a 10.

Tempted to give this a miss for the time being, can't be doing with some time stealing video-crack at the minute.

Yeah great review,i have lost more hours on pc than on any game since dark souls.I would say if you struggle on pc you head of to the auction house to upgrade your gear with your hard earned gold,none of that hear.This is what makes the console version way tougher,that with the fact that pc players no that you have to stick together. I am surprised on how good this game looks on the 360,great job blizzard.

I hate games that don't last very long, but why would I want to play a game that will take me thousands of hours to complete?

I'm not sure where you get 'thousands of hours' from, I'm about 18 hours in and I'm on the last act of my first playthrough. Honestly, I have no idea what you're getting at with that suggestion, it seems simple to me, you either play games to complete the story then keep playing until you're done with it or you want to max out everything and complete every last thing. I guess you need to define 'complete' as it pertains to you.

How long you play the game for after a first playthrough is entirely down to your personal values, what point you consider a game 'finished'. If you're a one playthrough guy, then it's about 20-25 hours, if you want to max out 1 character, then (depending on the paragon points) it could be anywhere from 60-100 hours, maybe more. If you're all about the achievements, then you're looking at about 100 hours at a rough guess. You would only be looking at 'thousands of hours' if you wanted to play every character and max them all out and get all achievements and challenges. If that's your choice, then fine, but it is then no different to any mp game that you play over and over again, making the question of 'why would I play this' redundant. IF you're a person who wants to max out everything he can, then the majority of games you will ever play are going to have hundreds of hours of content.

The best always are.

Really enjoyable review - I expect I'll pick this up on PS4 if it ever appears.

This game is definitely worthy of a 10/10!

I wouldn't baulk at giving this a 10, if it felt perfect. (Didn't I say flawless *conversion*?)

But while it is an exquisite game, there's a kernel of resentment towards it, too. I resent how it plugs into my circuitry so easily, and plays me like a damn fiddle. If you're going to analyse me GO AHEAD - it might be that resentment that killed my 10 instinct.

I agree with log,you can not just hand a ten out like it's nothing.I do not no how many games have achieved that magic number and it does come down to personal preference.I no we should not care but a lot of gamer's do care about the number at the end of the text.

The reviewer makes his or her case and then hits us with the number at the end.I would expect a ten if this game had not come out on pc a year ago.I think a lot of hours would have had to have gone into a game like this to justify that perfect score.I agree with everything in this review,and having spent a lot of time with the pc version,i can say this is the best port i have ever played.

I have a sneaky feeling that a certain game coming out in two weeks time might just get that perfect score.

Can anyone tell me what games oxm have given that all allusive ten to?

Not getting this just because i know i don't have the spare hours that this game needs and i'll get annoyed!

Maybe if it comes over to the Xbox One I'll look into it in the new year.

Have to say this is the game I have been craving for a while, it just hits the right spot when I fire it up. I had a good day at work and it topped my day. Yesterday, had a stressful day, fired up Diablo and again it was just the therapy I needed. There are few games that do that, I usually have piles of casual games, happy games and grumpy mood games, Diablo seems to fit all three piles :D though the down side is I am finding I can lose my time to it so easily. The other game that I hope will be like this is GTA :D

Anyway random ramble over, think my brain overheated or something with being back to work :lol: must now go play Diablo, it is calling me :D
