| An absolute disappointment and poor launch
I bought diablo 3 at launch expecting it to be a good introduction to the diablo franchise. The first problem stems from the abysmal launch where it took me and many others hours just to log in because of some "error 36/37". At the time i didn't care because I was excited when i played the game and created my badass Demon Hunter and then I found another error, the lack of character customization, i think the demon hunter's have awesome male and female models but the other characters don't meet my appeal. I played upto level 20 on normal difficulty and enjoyed my experience upto that point, until i realized the game was, point, spam, done without any interesting equipment. I learnt only a few weeks ago that the devs made the equipment deliberately bland for normal to encourage people to play on inferno, however i was unaware of this at the time. Some other issues i have with the game include graphics and atmosphere, the game is surprisingly low ended graphics wise with the only exception being the cutscenes which are phenomenal, and i was lead to believe that diablo 3 would be an extremely grim and disturbing world, it was meh... One praise i have for diablo 3 is it's boss fights which i found incredibly entertaining and the dialog in towns and with the companions (specifically the templar) Here are a few bullet points to outline diablo 3 +Great cutscense +Great dialogue +Great boss fights -Horrific launch -below average graphics -repetitive nature -tame content (no mature focus) -boring loot

If i were to recommend a game similar in play style, Torchlight 1 or 2 (though i have briefly touched upon the games they are miles better than diablo 3)
