Diablo II is an action role-playing hack and slash video game developed by Blizzard North and published by Blizzard Entertainment in 2000 for Microsoft Windows, Classic Mac OS, and Mac OS X. The game, with its dark fantasy and horror themes, was conceptualized and designed by David Brevik and Erich Schaefer, who with Max Schaefer acted as project leads on the game.
If you thought the first Diablo was fun, this takes it to a whole new level. I love all the classes, but my faves were the Necromancer and Druid. I regret I never was able to play this game with friends all the way through. But it was still a great time. If I had a PC, I'd play it again today!
This is the game that redefined RPGs in general and spawned lots of clones. All these clones made playing the original game kinda weird, coz you played it many times, so the original game feels secondary, but it’s vice versa actually! So keep this in mind if you want to play Diablo II now, but you played lots of other action RPGs already. Otherwise you’ll just get your typical hack-n-slash fantasy game.
Diablo II has many classes with large progress trees, lots of weapons and armor, and let’s be honest the game was meant to play online with all these trading opportunities. And my only gripes are also connected with that, coz there’s very little support from Blizzard against cheaters and bots.
