Diablo is the natural progression of games like Ultima 8 and Faery Tale but with fantastic looking hi res graphics. The creatures moan and cackle as they move from the darkened shadows towards you. Open the sarcophagi and meet the consequences.
With a random level editor, you’ll never play the same level twice and your character develops reflexes, combat ability and stamina the more adventurous you get.
In summary, another superb effort from Blizzard which confirms their standing as a world class developer.
A town vanishes… Creatures roam the countryside… The smell of death hangs heavy in the air… You’ve been hearing the tales for weeks now. The catacombs beneath the town are said to house long dead warriors from a forgotten age. Some say that they have awakened. Others say that the maze leads to the gates of Hell itself. Whatever the source of the evil, you have sworn to destroy it.
Diablo invites you to enter a world of dark gothic fantasy. Choose your persona, and enter the labyrinth beneath the decaying town. As you venture deeper into the catacombs, you’ll discover weapons, armor, and magical treasures, and develop your character’s skills and abilities. You might also want to bring a friend or two to help… Built in support for battle.net, as well as modem, serial, and network play, insures that you’ll never have to go in alone.
