    As an old school diablo player and a long time blizzard fan this is the first game blizz has dropped in a while that felt like a blizzard game for me, i've beaten the campaign and moved on to leveling so i can increase my world tier and the story was great, and honestly if i solely played for the campaign it would've been good enough, the story was great and you can definitely see the expansion coming from the ending.

      Yeah, sadly the latest WoW expansion started out pretty cool, so much felt right and then (as a PvP player) the ball has been thoroughly dropped on the end game. Solo Shuffle is killing arena, class tuning is making healer's lives miserable. Just a big disappointment. I had low expectations for Diablo 4 but it's refreshingly good. They didn't reinvent the wheel with game breaking nonsense. It's just a well crafted diablo game, which is what everyone wants.

      @brkus2665 as a pvp player dragonflight is feeling like the final nail in the coffin. Solo shuffle will see to it that at least half the already small player base quits, many of which were people willing to play healers.

    I've never really been too big on Diablo and I'm not entirely sure why. This game really caught my eye with how stunning it looks and, despite some of the cosmetic microtransactions I've heard about, I've been really considering picking this one up!

      If you want to test if you like the gameplay I'd give Lost Ark a quick try. It is free and packed with stuff to do. If you don't like the quests and dungeons/raids of Lost Ark and just want more combat then I think you'll enjoy D4. I personally was bored with the D3 endgame so I haven't picked up D4 yet, but I know that people who liked D3 have nothing but praise for this one.

    Be glad there are no trapped chests. Been playing since Diablo original. My fav was the Druid from D2. But it was a pain to switch forms. Now in D4 form switching is automatically done for your chosen ability. Very fluid and very fun with tons of possible combos. In D3 I really liked to play the monk and the demon hunter and miss them in D4. Rouge is Good at bows but you might want to mix in some melee, like Dash and caltrops to get you out of swarms. Swarming groups of mobs happens alot. New players try the Barbarian and Druid first. There both very tanky and can take a lot of punishment vs the glass connon Rouge and Mage

    I haven't played diablo since 3. I jumped on this one to scratch the arpg itch and so far I am amazed at how much better this game is than 3. I'm already addicted to it 3 days in and I absolutely love the variety of things to do. Side quest, open world bosses or any dungeon. I'm only at l3vel 48 but i am really loving the direction they took with this game!

    Solid informative video as always, Jake. I had never touched Diablo before but got talked into trying the Beta. I was late to it so didn't get as much time in as I would have wanted. But I enjoyed it. I never thought I would. I'm now debating getting the game when it makes sense for me financially. But it's on my "To get" list. It seems like a solid investment for my friends. They all got the ultimate edition and haven't put it down since the early access. Couple of them booked a week off work and have literally stayed on the game for full days/nights at times 😂. Definitely a game that I never thought would be on my radar and now Is firmly there. Especially after the launch of other games I was anticipating that flopped pretty hard. Glad to see people enjoying it

  • 6guage
    6guage 3 місяці тому +2

    Played all three so far and I’ve been really happy with the improvement of each over the last. TBH I was skeptical of III at first because it felt so different pace-wise, once I got into it I got completely hooked and loved the more intense faster pace because it was matched with a high level of fluidity so it worked really well. Super hyped for IV after watching this, might even get the $100 version

  • Shane
    Shane 3 місяці тому +25

    Started with the 4 day early access as a sorcerer going with an ice shard/hydra build. Beat the main story on the day of the official release but had already made it to lvl 50 and put about 30 hours into it. There's a MASSIVE amount of stuff to do, and while some of it is cliche, I never once felt bored or went "naw I'll skip that challenge". I started on World Tier II and am rolling my 2nd character now to do on the side when I wanna go back through the story. The store isn't BAM in your face which I like, but $25 for skins??? really??? Luckily the designs in game are already really cool so outside of maybe whatever they do with the battle pass you shouldn't ever feel like you HAVE to spend money to play or keep up. But it's a live service game so we'll see if the can keep the good going and not devolve into nonsense like so many other live service games before it. So far though I'd give, on release, Diablo IV a very solid 8/10 worth checking out.

    I simply enjoy the fact that it feels and plays like a game that was made and finished to be a start to finish complete experience that isn't hidden behind the need to buy extra things.
    There is plenty of meat on this game's bones to feast on for the $70 dollar price tag. If you can put 50 plus hours into it and still have fun your getting your money's worth.

    • frost white
      frost white 3 місяці тому +23

      honestly dont feel like 50 hours is enough for a 70 dollar game. I feel that monster hunter world, or even rise was worth the price. I didnt like rise all that much but it had loads of content. and was well worth the price. i spent over 100 hours. i did end up not liking it but the amount of content provided very much met the price. if diablo is 50 hours of fun then the rest boring, i would say its not worth the price.

    • calix bessanh

      @frost white that’s 1.5 hour/dollar. Going to the movies or to a theme park is a way worse return. A medium Lego set costs about as much, for a couple hours of your time. 50 hours is definitely worth it to me

    Been a player since early on with Diablo 1. The first two were so so SO much and some of my favorite games of all time. I tried to get into 3 but it just wasn’t for me (too cartoony or too much of a push for online maybe…?)
    What I would really like to see is a mode similar to hardcore but something more along the lines of “Classic” with the classic inventory Tetris system. Loot is great but it doesn’t have as much value when each item “weighs” the same. I also really miss the map overlay and hope they put that out someday. Otherwise, love the game so far! It’s fun to have a good story mixed with great combat that can be played with friends or solo and I don’t feel that I am missing anything.

  • Zuriel
    Zuriel 3 місяці тому +2

    I've played D3 RoS first than went back to 1&2 and 3 was my favorite out of them by far because the first 2 just felt older than the games I'm used to now. I'm only mid game into D4 since I didn't get the deluxe or whatever and had to start last night but so far it's fun and looks great. The cosmetic shop is something i looked at once to see what the premium skins looked like but they were just ok to mr compared to what D3 had at base and I've seen a lot of end game builds of D4 and they're characters look so much better than the stuff in the shops so I'm not concerned about it existing at all atm. I need to see how I feel about the game in a couple months before making a solid opinion but right now I like D4 a lot.

  • Robert Nilsson
    Robert Nilsson 3 місяці тому +6

    Only thing that bothers me with the game is lack of enemy variety and latency is a bit more common when riding through zones and you hit an invisible wall for a while before being able to move forward.
    Other then that, super engaging and fun, great story and love the game play in general.

    • Scooter Blalock

  • Mike Nolan

    I'm 24 been playing video games my whole life and have never played a diablo game before. Decided I wanted to understand the world I was about to get into and have a grasp of the lore and story since it's so deep and rich in both. I really wanted to buy diablo 4 but I read so many comments from so many old fans saying that diablo 2 resurrected was a fantastic game, the devs did the game justice, and if you really want to know the story you have to play so i had to buy it. After having barely put 8 hrs in I realized I missed this from my childhood, could easily sink hundreds of hrs into it, and came to the conclusion that once I had finished db2 I'm going straight to db4. Honestly I haven't even watched the video but I know this game is also going to be an absolute banger I'm just really hyped and excited and can't wait to play, from what i have already seen it looks f*cking awesome!

  • Alter Valna
    Alter Valna 3 місяці тому

    The game looks and feels great gameplay-wise for the short time I've put into it so far, but my biggest let-down was the lack of a character creation system--no body builds, no facial changes, lack of hairstyles that you'd think would be a common starting point to have, etc. There could've been a lot to really custom design your insert character to better enjoy playing your character in the game--at least, as a female character player, that's what it felt like. Thankfully, Rogue looked closest to what I wanted as a sense of "my character" in this world, otherwise I would've gone Necromancer (I did look at the other classes--Barbarian and Druid were too large on female side, and I couldn't quite get what I wanted out of a Sorceress).
    However, character creation aside, the game looks phenomenal!

  • EyesOfTheFox
    EyesOfTheFox 3 місяці тому +649

    Something people overlook is that in Diablo 4, level descrepencies no longer plague the experience when playing with friends in a party. Everything is scaled to each individual member, so your lower level friends no longer get one shot for trying to quest with you.

      Only roadblock is that it follows the party leader's questline. So whoever did the least of the main quest should party lead if they wanna do main quest.
      But yeah, the scaling and damage is unique to each player which is mind blowing that they managed to make that work somehow.

  • KageDarkAngel
    KageDarkAngel 2 місяці тому

    I started with Diablo 2 on the PC but never really got overly into the game as I had a hard time building characters at the start so I would end up stuck in the second Act where I couldn't even beat the burning dead in the sewers. The only Diablo game I beat was Diablo 3 and it is the only one I seem to be able to play on Torment level difficulty solo without dying once. Played a bit of Diablo 4 as a Druid (psyched as it was my fav back in 2) but died literally 3 times on the easiest difficulty (I always start easy and then do another run on higher difficulties) to some dungeon bosses, not sure if it was due to limited dodge mechanics, lack of good gear drops or limited potion/recovery skills... (or maybe I just suck? who knows?). Kind of hate the idea of the maps, dungeons, and quests leveling with my character, makes it feel like any progress I make seem kind of pointless. The NPC shops are... expensive, but I love being able to create or customize your own legendary gear so that is a plus, also the resources and gold are easy to get. I also think I still suck at character builds when it comes to this Diablo's Druid or maybe Druid isn't the right character I should be soloing as. It is a lot of fun though.

  • Marissya
    Marissya 3 місяці тому +309

    This has been the most enjoyable Diablo experience for me. Back when I first played Diablo I I was pretty young but absolutely loved it. Diablo 4 has brought back that joy factor that I felt 3 was missing (at least for me).
    Big call out, it finally feels like you can create a powerful set of gear that is customized to the skills you actually want to play with. Lots of options. 3 I felt would pigeon hole you into specific sets if you wanted to do anything with the higher tier content.

    • Wattrus
      Wattrus 3 місяці тому +3

      Does the weapon you equip your character with look like the one they’re carrying? Are the basic attacks based on the weapon? How close is it to D2 cause I absolutely hated d3

    • Marissya
      Marissya 3 місяці тому +8

      @Wattrus basic attacks are actually set on your “Basic” skills that you choose from the skill tree. For example, I use the Storm Strike basic skill from the Druid tree to complement my nature build. These skills generate your resources for the heavier hitting skills you choose.
      The weapon you equip DOES look like what you’re wearing. There is a transmog system if you want to change the look as well. Pretty decent one. Can dye the individual pieces for armor.
      As for Diablo II, 4 is definitely in its own category with it being so open and encouraging exploration, but the combat feel and enjoying dungeons/caves/cellars is a much closer experience. Lots of quests.

      ​@Marissya this closeness to D2 might actually make me buy D4. I've clocked a huge amount of hours into D2 over the last 20 years (Project Diablo 2 recently), and D3 disappointed me while D Immortal outright pissed me off.
      Here's hoping they don't decide in a couple months that D4 could use the massive cash grab tactics that too many modern games have employed to my disgust.

    I had zero interest in this game when it got announced. But the last few days, I suddenly want to buy it. It just sounds and looks so damn good. Also because I absolutely fell in love with the Rogue class, its been a while since ive played a game were rogues were that good.

    So glad to hear from so many outlets that Diablo 4 is an excellent next game in the series. I've been playing since Diablo 1 on the PS1, having probably 3000-4000 hours in Diablo 2. After D3 I fell off and wasn't really into these kind of top-down dungeon crawlers anymore, but I played the beta and found it really fun, so I'm jumping into D4 this weekend. Thanks Jake, you're a cool guy. :^)>

      Yeah man… I played the original in ‘97 and didn’t play D2 or D3. I’m back for D4 and the game is giving me a lot of WoW vibes and having a blast playing my Sorcerer. Necromancer is next… I played Mage/Priest/Warlock in WoW so these 2 are my obvious first choice characters. It’s just too bad the real life stuff like work has to get in the way. 😂

    Who else remembers when maps would change in each d2 server and everyone waited in the town for the magic finding sorc to TP us all straight to Baal. Being able to make a public server and name the server with exactly what everyone was going to be doing was awesome. with nostalgia out of the way, D4 is impressive and I highly recommend it. Also, i hope there is a secret level in D4 that hasnt been found yet, like the Hell Bovine in Tristam.

    The last game i ever felt excited for was diablo 2 resurrected. As a 30+ gamer, when that released, i felt like a 15 year old again. I would skip lunch at work just to level up my paladin, and this was at a point where i played all the current games and nothing felt good anymore. I was numb. Its so good to know they learned so much from that game and made a proper sequel. Diablo 3s after release support is legendary. Hell even diablo 2 lod got a patch not ao long ago. So i know d4 will not die, and i will get it after they release the eventual paladin/crusader/knight class just as i did w diablo 3. Btw, i played and enjoyed immortal wo spending a dime. Its worth trying out w friends then stopping after a certain point. Love this franchise, warts and all. (Of course F not monetization, but Greedy monetization wc immortal has)

    Here in the Netherlands (and possibly other countries) they raised the price of the ultimate and deluxe versions by €10 each since yesterday. It's now €109.99 for the ultimate edition and €99.00 for the deluxe edition. I believe Blizzard has a right to charge whatever they want but they need to keep in mind that this sudden price hike doesn't seem costumer friendly.

    Diablo 4 is the best Diablo game, ever. It has the atmosphere and intrigue of Diablo 2, a well-done open world (rare these days), compelling side quests and main quests, the improved, polished combat of D3, the streamlining of vendors and stats from a few different games… it really feels like this is the penultimate Diablo experience.

  • Ed Cole

    I used to literally fall asleep playing Diablo 3. My partner would nudge me awake cause my character was starting to die. It was very linear and the difficulty was always either too easy or too hard. Grim dawn is a little more engaging with it's open world than D3 and added some nice quality of life things that i hear D4 might have. I'm on the fence about getting D4 but the combat looks better. Would be nice if there was a popular game in this genre that wasn't so gloomy looking. V rising is closest i can think of

    Been playing since early access. Game is really fun. Some funky glitches like the tree challenges not adding points after you beat em. Reset the game and it showed I filled up the bar. A few invisible wall. One game crash while I was going into a dungeon from the map. Game is still better than 3 imo.

    I'm really enjoying D4. I honestly haven't played much Diablo since the original; game, but this one grabbed me during the open beta. I really like the ability to apply transmogrifications from equipment that you salvage at the blacksmith. It gives me the ability to look however I want while still wearing the RPG clown suit of "best stats gear."

  • The Rotten💯
    The Rotten💯 3 місяці тому +9

    I'm absolutely loving it so far. One minor gripe that I hope gets patched though is with mouse vs controller when it comes to the sorcerer and the ice shard skill. When playing with a mouse, an ice shard blast will miss a target by an inch if I'm not perfectly lined up with it (and sometimes when I'm lined up perfectly) which hurts considering it's about 1/3 of my mana pool per shot.
    Decided to give the controller a shot to see how that played (not because of that skill, I just wanted to see how it played with a controller since I'd never played a Diablo game with one before) and I immediately realized the controller "tracked" the enemy better, with it only missing about half as often and usually only when I fully realized I fired it at the wrong time. It makes it tempting to use the controller, but that just doesn't "feel" like Diablo to me, so I'm dealing with the handicap of the mouse and keyboard...however, mouse should never be a handicap in these games.

    Diablo 3 was my first Diablo game. I immediately put it down because I didn't care for the top down view. I ended up playing and completing Darksiders 4, which incorporated this type of view. This was different than the previous 3 games, so it took getting used to. After that I decided to go back to Diablo 3. But by the time I got back into it, Diablo 4 was around the corner. I'm gonna try getting into Diablo 4.

    Been playing since Diablo (the first one) and so far I'm really enjoying the new one. I love all the options you have for setting up your character. The meta is always going to be the go to, but you can try anything you like.

    • Joma Hawk
      Joma Hawk 3 місяці тому

      But the fact that “trying whatever you want” will mean zero progress once you hit the end game is a huge red flag for a game like this. Being FORCED into an optimized “meta” build to have any chance in the end game is what killed Borderlands 2, and will be a MASSIVE detriment to this game.

    I've actually never played a Diablo game. I've played other games like it, but never one of the Diablo games itself. Would I get into it? Probably at some point. I have such a big backlog as it is and other online games that have seasons and stuff that it's not exactly on the top of my list. But I always appreciate your guy's videos on the games coming out to see what's going on with them and the honest opinions. Thank you so much!

    the mmo aspect blends in so perfect. especially when you're out in the middle of nowhere by yourself, or so you think, then someone randomly comes by, helps, says greeting, then goodbye.
    it all adds to the depth and immersion so I'm LOVING diablo 4, possibly now my all time favorite.

    Really enjoyable at the start, at the end game during world tier 3 pushing levels is rough takes time and is unforgiving, the world get's a little bit too big sometimes and the side quests are repetitive, and making you explore the entire world on every new character even after selecting to skip the campaign is a bit of a bummer tbh, the store is the biggest let down with 30$ skins and the available transmogs and armor I find a bit lacking, diablo 3 had way more customization options for legendaries and armor, other than that the game is really solid, well worth spending tons of hours on

  • Gigantic Walrus
    Gigantic Walrus 3 місяці тому +1

    Here is a straightforward review, and going to be down to earth with this one, as much as I've enjoyed all the diablo games in the past. This is one of the most bland and repetitive games I've ever played. Completely overhyped, and I struggle to find a reason to even complete the story. The graphics are beautiful, and the story is pretty cool if you can manage to force yourself to push through one of the slowest breadcrumb trailed out storylines. While I played, I just wanted to get to the next area, and rushing through it just to get more story. Completely pointless, waste of time traversing so long from one area to the next. It's the Blizzard way to keep you playing their game by forcing you down long linear paths, then backtracking over and over again to complete quests and progress.
    It's ok for a point and click adventure "cozy" game. Other than that, the game is pretty boring, with an overpriced RMT cosmetic shop on the side. Oh, and good luck playing with your friends, if you have a job and they are ripping through levels while you're at work, you'll never play with them. If you do, they will just run through everything, clearing out dungeons, making you chase them, picking up loot, and showing off how powerful they are, while they power level you so you can easily beat the game when you play alone. Sounds like a blast, right?

    I bought this today after work its a blast. I wish I didn't go straight to hard-core mode after hours of fun just to start over was a mistake in my opinion. But got right back in it. Just didn't go that route the second time. Maybe later after I beat it a few times
