Why Diablo 2 Sucks

Pros:Um...

Cons:Everything--it's boring!

Call me an idiot if you'd like, but Diablo 2 just plain SUCKS! The graphics are absolutely horrendous-probably drawn by a demented porcupine in heat-and you can't even change the resolution. The graphics engine used is four years old, the same one that they used for the first Diablo game. Pixels pop out everywhere in the laughable 2-D graphics. Most of the time you can hardly see what is going on, because the dark lighting blurs everything and all of the character animations are tiny.

But forgetting the graphics, the gameplay is terribly unbalanced and excruciatingly boring. First of all, bugs plague the game like maggots on a fat man after he drops dead from eating six buckets of corn dogs. These bugs create unfair situations on the internet, making Barbarians and Necromancers almost impossible to beat. The save system is incredibly screwed up--if you want to save, you must exit the game! Plus, playing gets tedious, because it is almost completely the same as Diablo I and you do nothing but click. I even did an experiment: I took my level 31 Barbarian into battle on nightmare difficulty, using war axes, and I randomly clicked for 90 seconds, and killed 15 flayers and 2 flayer shamans without dying. Flayers are supposedly among the hardest things to beat in the game when they are in large packs, but I seemed to dispose of them with no problem. This shows that the enemies have terrible AI. They are way too easy to beat, and involve too much random clicking. And if you want, you can just run away from them and never be attacked. Ever. You are faster than absolutely any monster in the entire game. Period. Plus, they are so stupid, that even if you stood still, it would take them forever to find and attack you. The enemies are too unpowerful, and the game is too easy to beat. Maybe in upcoming patches they will get better, but they certainly suck for now.

As for the bosses, they are a major letdown. They pose as much threat as a little baby who poops his diaper and watches Barney all day. Well, Diablo himself is quite difficult, butt if sumwun az stoopid az mee could beat him, then I'm sure that you can too. So for all these reasons and more, I hate the game and everything about it. There is virtually no difference between Diablo 2 and its crummy predecessor, Diablo I. They just repackaged the same game and sold it to make money. Overall, this game sucks. Avoid it like a pus-covered chimpanzee who has the bubonic plague and likes to belch and sneeze his rancid pus all over people and lick them with his bunion-covered tongue that oozes pus all over the place.
