    It’s insane. It’s absolutely insane. Utter havoc. It’s what makes Diablo 3 the preeminent action RPG, even if there are newer and arguably better designs out there. I still grin, shake my head, and marvel at Blizzard’s ability to fuse charm, character, and technical prowess. They are the masters of swirling cartoonish videogame power fantasies, they belong on the Switch, and they’re here at last.

    Even after all these years, I still find Diablo III’s loop of starting small and becoming a godlike force of destruction irresistible. Even without major new additions, the Switch’s portability makes it easier than ever to pop into Sanctuary, kill a few hundred monsters, and scoop up some sweet new loot.

    Diablo 3: Eternal Collection is everything from the last five years squeezed into a portable package. It plays brilliantly whether docked or not, and has more content than you could ever see. This is a game that is a must-play and to have access to it anywhere is almost unbelievable.

    Well executed conversion of the demonic hack&slay that might not look as crisp as the other versions, but manages to conserve the spirit and the motivation cycles woven into the very fabric of the mechanics.

    Diablo 3 feels at home on the Nintendo Switch. With a constant 60 fps and the availability to play anywhere, it's a great addition to the family. The only sad part is that sSeasonal can't be played offline and the controls sometimes feel a bit clunky.

    This compilation of Diablo III and its expansions underscores how far the gothic hack n' slash series has fallen.

A dark and mystical story isnt much, but its enough to give you a reason for the grind, and the world around you. Would HIGHLY recommend!. Expand

And I would contend itLet's get this out of the way... the Switch is simply not the graphical peer of its other console and PC versions. And I would contend it actually looks WORSE when docked than in handheld. There are definitely some rough edges graphically.

    Another problem is the lack of cross-play, but that was something I knew going in, so I can't be TOO irked about it. Still would have liked to carry my PC characters and jump in, though.

    That said, I still think it has quickly become my platform of choice for the game. Diablo 3 wasn't exactly known for its stunning visuals to begin with, and if you're coming from previous games in the series, you shouldn't be terribly turned off by it.

    Because most importantly, it keeps game performance up. It didn't matter how crazy the action got, I don't recall even the slightest hiccup in frame rate or processing. Blizzard clearly valued frame rate over fidelity, and it was absolutely the right choice.

    Meanwhile, coming from the PC version, I was honestly surprised how much smoother and more intuitive this game was to play from a controller over the PC's mouse and keyboard controls. It felt infinitely more natural, and I haven't felt compelled to touch the PC version in the last week.

    If you don't have Diablo 3 yet, this is the version you should get. Even if you HAVE another version, this is worth double dipping for.

    I didn't like D3 at launch (probably the worst launch i ever seen)

    Friends of mine played a lot after ROS in seasonal HC, and i came back
    I didn't like D3 at launch (probably the worst launch i ever seen)

    Friends of mine played a lot after ROS in seasonal HC, and i came back to play with them, i enjoyed it.

    Now the Switch version isn't the best looking visually (mostly the characters).
    Outside that it's the most enjoyable version of D3 i've seen by far.

    Local MP, on the go MP are an absolute blast, Offline seasonal HC is great for farming. The game is perfect for short on the go session. You take the train, you pot the switch, you launch a rift or a bounty, you don't even the the time of the travel pass.

    Regarding the control, i feel like console control are better than PC controls, directly controlling with the stick feel a lot better.

    Overall, it's imo the ultimate version of D3.

I passed the first hours of the game going from one boring place to another, holding the attack button down till all the dumb cannon-fodder enemies were killed, gathering the loot, equipping the new items, watching some uninteresting badly-written dialogue about the return of evil and basic dark fantasy stuff and repeat. Most of the time you don't even have to dodge anything or make any planning about how to tackle large enemy groups, what items or skills to equip, it's just so brainless and bland altogether. I will raise the difficulty to extra hard to see if that improves anything but even if it makes the game more challenging i doubt it will become any more interesting because the setting is just meh, been there, done that, million times better in other games.
