full disclosure, I'm playing this on my galaxy fold 3, your mileage may vary. I am also a huge diablo fan, having played since D1. I still play D3 on my xbox. So, big fanboi here.

On my phone it is probably the best FTP game out right now. It's immense in scope and looks amazing. Controls are pretty basic and work well. It's also huge, weighing in at over 12gb.

The biggest complaint I (and anyone else) would have is the PTW aspect. Holy ****, there's nine ways to sunday to milk money out of the consumer. I can't even begin to count how many different currencies are used within the game to upgrade your gear, not to mention the cosmetics. All of them can be grinded out, but it will take literally months, if not years, to fully upgrade your character.

The social aspect is pretty well done, with clans, raids, dungeons, pvp etc all available if you want to explore that part. It's also another way of making you grind, with daily task you have to complete in order to advance in that part of the game.

Having installed the game on three different platforms (Ipad, phone and PC) my character I created on my phone doesn't show up to select when starting the game on the other devices. Each game appears to be ignorant of my other characters on the other platforms, even though you're required to log into your battle.net account and I'd assume your character is stored in their cloud to prevent cheating. I've played other games (MTG for example) that has that feature, not sure why blizzard can't do it.

Anyway, the game is pretty much a slightly lighter version of older Diablo titles, but with massive micro (and not so micro) transactions for those folks who just have money to burn. Personally, I'd rather pay $30 bucks and put up with cosmetic purchases which doesn't affect gameplay than this underhanded money grab in order to win. Supposedly you don't NEED to spend money to finish the game, but after playing for a couple weeks, I can see where it will take a metric **** ton of grinding to do so.

But it is entertaining. 4/5 stars.

I downloaded it on my iPad, haven***8217;t tried it yet tho. Bunch of ppl *****ing about having to pay $100,000+ or spend 10+ years to be ***8220;maxed out***8221;. Sounds more to me like up to 10 years of free game play without capping out. I am going to try it out soon.

Haven't tried it because of all the complaints about the game and scoring a whopping 0.2 on Metacritic. Waiting it out for D4 I guess.

Oh it's a 0.4 now. :P

I bought d3 when it first came out***8230; I think I***8217;ll wait until D4 releases all its content before buying.

Remember when you used to get the full game for a one time price? I***8217;m not buying into the purchase 5 expansions within the first year ****.

The only real issue with the time spent upgrading is who knows if in the future they move the goalposts to push for more grind and PTW?

Right now the level cap is 60/60 (level 60, with a level 60 paragon cap). If you're familiar with D3, paragon is a whole separate leveling after you reach level 70 and as far as I know, there is no paragon cap. I've seen characters with over 5000 paragon, which only could have been gotten via exploits.

So, who can say that after a year, they change the level cap to 70, and reset the paragon levels after releasing a new character (like they did with the necromancer in D3)?

The artwork and stuff yes, they used a lot of D3 material, but the gameplay is a bit different. It's still diablo, but that's not a bad thing.

But cash grab - yeah, no question.

I played a few hours of it, but for some reason it didn't grab me as well. Don't know why. I know a lot of people that swear that POE is a vastly superior game to the diablo franchise.

The arpg style of games are probably my favorite genre of video games. Stuff like Mass Effect, Dragon Age, Fable, etc, all have sucked a million hours of my life away.
