Gamers rip Diablo III a new hellhole on Metacritic

Diablo III has been out for less than a day, but launch issues have driven a number of gamers to find justice the only way they know how (other than increasingly ridiculous memes): negative product reviews. As of this writing, the game holds a 3.4/10 user score on aggregate site Metacritic. Many writers cite the inability to play offline, especially combined with the lack of available servers at launch. Whether it’s right or wrong to review a game you haven’t played, it does make for some interesting reading for the rest of us. Here are a few of the highlights.

“It’s just a 3/10 without the Diablo mark,” but it does have the Diablo mark, so he gave it a 2. Also, it totally rips off the other games in the series it’s in.

Take that, Brink! Because that’s a solid comparison.


I knew I should have dropped that English degree and majored in Big Monkey Ass. That’s clearly where the money is.

Well, at least it’s super violent. Otherwise, it would be a complete wash.
