"Enter the chaotic world of Diablo - a gore-laden
trip into the dark recesses of dungeoneering.
"At the core of Diablo is a classic battle between
good (you) and evil (the monsters). Put simply: It's a kill or be killed thing.
But what makes Diablo so appealing is the incredible overall package
that Blizzard delivers into your hot and sweaty hands."
"...The dungeons are randomly generated for every game, so
it's never the same adventure twice. Thankfully, auto-mapping is available for
those who need it."
"While solitary exploring is engaging, Diablo thrives
on multiplayer mayhem. Whether via Blizzard's Battle.net or on a LAN,
Diablo is a totally different experience when you sally forth with
fellow Diablo disciples. You'll quickly learn that cooperation can be as
much fun as deathmatching."
"Diablo is simply one of the best games ever."
