Diablo ii: lord of destruction

      60

It was a long time ago, early 1997 lớn be more exact, when the town of Tristram fell & was subsequently cleansed in an epic isometric dungeon romp known as Diablo. The clever guys at Blizzard created a trò chơi with a whole new feel, an kích hoạt game that almost fooled you into thinking it was a role-playing adventure.

You need a fairly sturdy character khổng lồ make it outside the new town in Act V.

The announcement of its sequel was all the rave, resulting in an almost unprecedented number of pre-orders. Finally, in June 2000, Diablo II erupted onto the shelves khổng lồ enormous popularity. In Diablo II, Blizzard expanded their fantasy world into four new regions, each with numerous quests and friendly NPCs, each with a vast wilderness populated by scores of little demons. We ventured through these areas in which lurked Diablo’s Soulstone-mates – Mephisto, The Lord of Hatred, and Baal, The Lord of Destruction. We vanquished Mephisto and Diablo himself, but Baal, the last of the Prime Evils, remained unscathed.

Ain’t No Hellfire

Lord of Destruction is but an expansion pack to lớn Diablo II that offers the same type of hack-and-slash action. Or is it? The disc version requires installation of the original game & invites you to lớn either import your original characters, or to create new ones. Your characters must have completed Diablo II’s four acts before they may enter the new Act V, which begins in the city of Harrogath, located somewhere up in the frozen North.

In addition to lớn the ubiquitous Deckard Cain, last of the Horadrim, Harrogath has five more denizens that are more than willing khổng lồ attend lớn all of your shopping, repair, hiring, & gambling needs. Conversation choices và dialogue are as sparse and limited as ever, but this game is not about gathering information from NPCs. In fact, if you’re progressing for the third or fourth time through the first four acts, you’ll probably not even stop khổng lồ listen.

After the furor over the original Diablo waned, a lot of folks were surprised lớn see that Blizzard handed over the rights to vị an add-on to its stellar title to Synergistic Software. Hellfire proved to lớn be a merely average expansion – single-player only, adding two new dungeon tilesets & monsters, as well as a few items, quests và one extra playable character. People almost immediately hacked it to add multiplayer support (but were not able to vị so on Battle.net, Blizzard’s không lấy phí Internet server). Many people were forced lớn play the new areas solo, however, and a significant portion of Diablo fans didn’t even bother.

The quests aren’t all that original in Act V.

Charmed, I’m sure.

Act V is a cold realm, so expect plenty of ice attacks.

Damn these undead mages.

There’s some point in Lord of Destruction where you’re just in awe of all the sheer volume of stuff, from items & skills to lớn innumerable quái thú classes. This may be, hands down, the most definitive add-on to lớn any game on record. It rivals other products whose expansions actually improved on the chất lượng of the original game – think AoE II: The Conquerors or StarCraft: Brood Wars. How did you ever live without the dual-weapon configuration, allowing a one key stroke switch between them? This feature gives your character much more combat versatility, along with sixteen (instead of eight) hotkeys for spells and skills.

The twice-as-large stash (your thành công storage chest) is wonderful, giving you a lot more time khổng lồ decide what you want to lớn keep và what you don’t, which is especially important now, since the thousands of new items—including new charms, jewels & runes—present seemingly never-ending possibilities. It’s only fortunate that now you can equip your hired mercs with some of the items you find – particularly weapons, armor and helms – so even second rate magical gear won’t go khổng lồ waste.

Some seemingly innocuous but certainly annoying activities have disappeared: the tedious buy-a-potion, place-the-potion, buy-a-potion, place-the-potion activity owes its demise khổng lồ the ctrl-right-click purchase option. The click-repair, click-broken-time-one-at-a-time yawner was replaced a Repair All button. Add to these the new Assassin & Druid character classes (rounding the total number up lớn seven), & you have one heck of a versatile quái dị romp.
