An extremely enthusiastic review of The Chosen at JustPressPlay scores Rebelmind's action/RPG at 9/10 and declares the gameplay equal to Diablo II:
Overall, The Chosen: Well of Souls is a new generation's Diablo II. Literally. It's Diablo II with spruced up graphics. Sure they ditched the cutscenes, but they kept the essence of the game that matters. I fear rating the game as an equal to Diablo II, for fear of the diehard fans out there…but I'm one too…and honestly…it's good enough to be the heir to Diablo II…for now.
