Diablo II review
Millions of people were waiting and counting
the days of the Diablo II release. Diablo was an enormous hit and the world
was expecting Diablo II to be even more famous. After playing this game and
knowing the story, Iím pretty sure that Blizzard entertainment will make Diablo
3. Letís just cross our fingers and hope for the best. Well, I wanted to give
it a 9.5 or even a ten, but the graphics and the small glitches made me withdraw
to 9. This game might be a little boring at the beginning but as soon as you
are getting bored, something new and fresh will get your interest for this
game back to where it belongs. As I played, I almost forgot about my review
work, all I had in mind was the scenes from the game. My friend says that
I need help. Hey, maybe I do. Either way, this game is going to be one of
the best RPG of the year thatís for sure.

For those who donít know the story of Diablo,
donít worry, they explain it in the book. It all started after when Diablo
was defeated under the dungeon of Tristram, his soul stone went into the nameless
hero and took possession of his body. The people of Tristram didnít know about
the event and celebrated gloriously for Diabloís defeat. Since the nameless
hero had no family, it was normal for Tristramians to welcome him to live
He was friendly to those who ever approached
him, but despite the honour and awards, he slipped deeper and deeper into
depression. To cheer him up, Ogden suggested that they would throw a celebration
in the hopes to snap him out of the depression. They were wrong, at some point
the hero slipped away and left them. He sat in his entryway, had donned a
dark travelling cloak and said with an icy paralysing voice, "The time
has come to leave this place. My brothers await me in the east. Their chains
will bind no longer."
He left in secrecy the next morning, setting
foot towards the eastern pass only with a few provisions and his sturdy sword.
Shortly after his departure, Tristram people had their worst nightmare coming
true. The demons of Hell have returned. They butchered so many innocents.
No one knows why but one thing is for sure, the creaturesí return is somehow
linked to the nameless Wandererís departure. Only one person survived after
the slaughter of Tristram. It is Deckard Cain, the last descendant of the
Horadrim. He has evaded the beasts for many nights in the hope for someone
to come to his rescue.
Tristram is only the first of hundred of villages
to be consumed by devilís minions. Therefore, you must look for the nameless
wanderer and find out what he is looking for.
