Meh, I made the mistake of buying this game and I'm not terribly pleased with it. I was a huge fan of Diablo 2 but there's just so many things wrong with Diablo 3…

Online-only DRM: I've been kicked from the game over 15 times now. This is unacceptable. They were not prepared for launch at ALL.

UI: Very poorly thought out and regressive. Character can't move while the map is up? WTF??? Inventory covers minimap? Tooltips that work when they feel like it? Chat area is small are you can't resize it. There is no custom chatrooms. No way to talk to friends in-game other than PMs, unlike D2.

Loot: Uniques are worthless. Blue items are often better then them. The entire game is designed to force you to use the auction house (which I'm sure is why Blizzard is monetizing it with real money) The vast majority of loot you get is for many levels below you, literally forcing you to the auction house in higher difficulties if you want any chance of surviving. This is clearly by design.

Bosses: After the first kill on only the first difficulty, bosses drop worse loot than basic mobs. Awful.

Party play: Only 4 people in a group? Weak.
