Synopsis and Features
The 4 acts spread across the game will take on an incredible journey across Sanctuary as you try to find a path that leads to the Dark Wanderer. By rescuing key characters, you will be able to travel through deserts, open various portals to finally reach the evil overlord and assassinate him. Diablo II’s story moves at a very slow pace, but once you are past the first act things move pretty fast. You have to be a smart and quick thinker as only advance strategies will help you in taking down the Dark Wanderer.
Developed by Blizzard North and published by Blizzard Entertainment, Diablo II spins a tragic tale of how even good deeds can turn a person into an evil self. The hardware specifications required to play the game smoothly on your computer are Windows 2000, a 1.3 GHz Pentium 4 or AMD Athlon equivalent processor, an NVidia GeForce FX 5500 or Radeon Xpress 1200 series graphics card, 256 MB RAM and 1 GB of free hard disk space.
The single-player campaign will introduce you to 5 different character classes. You can start playing the game by selecting any class, but be careful as each class has its own unique powers. A new character system has been implemented in Diablo II, allowing you to choose and customize your character within the game as you deem fit. Spread across 4 acts, the game has a different setting for each act. This is an interesting feature as you won’t feel like you are playing the same level in every act.
You can gain large amounts of treasure and experience by slaying monsters. Unlike other games, the killing is justified here as if you don’t stop the Lord of Terror everything will be lost in the world of Sanctuary. Using experience points you will be upgraded to more powerful weapons and abilities. This will help you to finish off the demons much faster and reach the Dark Wanderer sooner, rather than later.
The multiplayer component of the game is just like the single player mode with the same levels and maps. Diablo 2 is fun to play with other gamers as you can easily connect to them using LAN or by logging into Battle.net. There are 2 ways to play the game online: open realms and closed realms. Single-player characters are playable through open realms, while the closed realm characters are stored on the blizzard servers. Players can also play the game cooperatively by using PvE or PvP methods.
Several patches are available for the game that tweak many features and help in improving the overall gaming experience. The various bug fixes help improve the gameplay, allowing you to easily log in online and play the game with your friends. The patches, updates, wallpapers and other content for the game can be downloaded directly from the company’s website.
