"Since the beginning of time, the forces of Order and Chaos have been engaged in an eternal struggle to decide the fate of all Creation. That struggle has now come to the Mortal Realm...and neither Man, Demon, nor Angel will be left unscathed... In the Diablo II: Lord of Destruction, you will return to follow the path of Baal, the last of the Prime Evils, into the Barbarian Highlands of the north. Traveling with hordes of demonic minions, Baal intends to corrupt the powerful Worldstone, which protects the whole of the mortal plane from the forces of Hell. You will face a new series of quests and challenges to prevent the vile minions of the underworld from destroying the world of Sanctuary. " says Blizzard (the makers of Diablo) ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Title : Diablo : Lord Of Destruction Game Type : RPG Online : Yes (usally played via the internet) Rating : High I have had this game for about three years now, and it is one of those games you can keep starting up again when ur tired of another game. The idea is to go around each Act (each lvl) with your frinds if you pay online, and a helper you get giving at the begining as one of your quests. Each act has 6 'Quests'. 6 Missions you should complete before venturomg to the next Act. However, you dont have to do them all. You are able to skip some out if you do not wish the complete them. You gain experience (EXP) and gold/items as you kill the monsters you face. Each time you have reached a certain amount of Exp you lvl up, and recive a skill point and 5 stat points. Skill points are used to earn you better magical ablities. Eg Nova, a magic lightening ring that kill enemies in a close range. Fury, a skill that ables you to attack very fast. Stats points are used to increase you dmg, life, mana (used for skills), block rating, and defense. You also need a certain amount of a stat to wea
r an item you find. You can choose between 8 different types of charaters and they hav 3 sub types.
You choose your character and descend into the dungeons beneath a church, battling the undead to collect experience points which can raise his attributes. Diablo II is out now, but even on my 350 MHz iMac, it won't run fast enough to be as much fun as the original. The graphics and sounds may not be technically amazing, but they are perfect for the game's atmosphere, and the way in which your character fights the monsters is well thought out and effective. That said, you will very quickly get bored of the one player version. You will finish the game within weeks of buying it, and it is almost un-replayable. However, the Diablo community on Blizzard.net (Blizzared are the people who make the game) is still alive and well, and you can always drop in for a game with some strangers. In this mode, up to 4 of you can travel into a dungeon which is much harder than the normal game's one and fight the demons *together*. If you can find it second hand cheaply somewhere and you've got access to the internet for hours at a time, I'd recomend this.
