Graphics & Art:

From the first few minutes in you can tell that Diablo 3 is a Blizzard game. It's beautiful and well blended as you have come to expect from their games. I really enjoy the color palette and ambiance that has been created. I read initial complaints that it "isn't dark enough for the Diablo IP", but I am quite happy with it. Graphics are really only a small part of the game but I doubt anyone will be disappointed with the look and feel of the world.

One thing that I can't get past is the environment depth. It screams of Titan Quest - the altitude of cliffs, the depth of chasms. I really enjoyed the effect in Titan Quest and I'm glad to see it again.

Kind of makes sense that Blizz gets some cues from other popular games. I agree with you on the art it does look really good.

If we are going to spend a zillion hours in a game, it does make sense to be able to see whats going on. I loved Doom 3 but it was a smidge too dark. Then again, when I played it with the lights off it was fine.

Hmm, I never thought about playing it in the dark. You can always adjust the gamma to your personal taste, but I think the default is more than reasonable.

Good to know. Can't wait to try it.

I got into the beta, downloaded it, but the launcher is bugged and now it won't let me play... so sad...
