As of Patch 1.0.8, Diablo III runs crappy on Snow Leopard. It's VERY herky-Jerky.

Since this latest Patch, every time I Start It Up, I now get a Window that tells me that Snow Leopard is Dead and if I really wanna play Diablo II, I better Upgrade to Mountain Lion. Which seriously sucks because Blizzard says on the Box that it works in Snow Leopard... as opposed to "Kinda Works" in Snow Leopard.

It's the starter edition. It's supposed to be limited.

I've been playing this for a while. Got the BETA in the first week, and watched as it turned into a Marketing scam. They never tested the higher end levels, which SURPRISE, led to massive imbalances come Inferno level. The good news is that Blizzard appears to have heard the outcries and 1.04 is going to attempt to fix much of the complaints. I'm eager to seem them make this fun again. Right now, I'm not playing anymore out of sheer boredom.

Same here... I got the RAGE effect at the end; "WTF!? That was IT!?"

I own and have played all of Blizzard titles. One of my favorite games was Diablo II and its extension packs.

Although, aurally and visually D3 is extremely well done, to me the third version of Diablo does not offer nearly as much re-play value as the previous versions. Perhaps the many good Diablo-Clones (e.g. Torchlight) have spoiled me, but this time around I quickly lost interest in the game once I completed the game thrice (once per level).

Compared to, say, a cinema ticket, D3 is still terrific value for money, so you should definitely get it if you like this kind of game. It just doesn't stack up as high as its predecessor. IMHO, of course.

What makes D3 disappointing after a while is the frustratingly unimaginative and predictable way Blizz makes the higher levels ('Hell' and above) more difficult.
Instead of enemies with more powerful spells or tactics, the monsters simply (and nearly always) have three skills: an area of effect (desecrate, lava etc) that damages you when you stand in it, a locking (stun, freeze, teleport or jail) ability to lock you on the the damaging tile, and either illusion or vampiric to enhance their own health. Then they attack with many lesser critters.
There is no way to get out (you are locked), you take damage that overwhelms any protection you have, and you get swamped by the lesser mobs. You instantly die, rez at the nearest checkpoint, take down a lesser mob, die. Rinse and repeat until you finally defeat the molten/teleport/vampiric trio.
There is no real skill here - neither in defeating, nor any surprise in the the nature of the challenge. This gets old pretty fast, and actually lessens replay value.

I just started playing Diablo III, and I'm loving it. I haven't played the first two games, so I was pleasantly surprised by the fact that this one was so easy to jump into.

Sure the game holds your hand in the beginning, its definitely ACTION RPG... more like RPG-oriented ACTION. The graphics are stupendous and the sound is amazing-if you have a nice speaker setup you're going to really get a kick out of this one, I've a DTT3500 5.1 Surround Sound setup.

Game's running SMOOTH AS BUTTER after an hour trying to get into the server after launch. After I got it running... awesome, awesom! I loved Diablo II and LoD... if you're into the series I really think you're going to enjoy the update.

The major caveat is that Blizzard requires you be connected to the internet and logged in to Battle.net to even play single player, the same as StarCraft II. The upside for me is that Blizzard is proactive about hunting down hackers and closing their accounts.

Why the hell am I still writing... I have to launch Diablo III!!!

Gameplay seems solid so far, but I haven't managed to get much playing in. The process of levelling up and selecting skills has been greatly simplified, making the game more accessible to casual gamers but severely reducing the possibilities for character customization (i.e., no skill trees to choose from, and attribute points are automatically assigned on level up). I haven't played enough yet to have an opinion on the new system, but a lot of early adopters seem very disappointed (though I suspect that much of this is latent frustration from the server issues). So far D3 has been a disappointing overall experience. I really hope Blizzard gets its act together and gets the game running smoothly very soon.
