What game sources write:
GameInformer: "Diablo II: Resurrected shows why the original game remains the standard by which all other ARPGs are evaluated. Although it does not have many quirks and constantly updated content that have become the basis for the genre as it transforms into a "game as a service" model, not all games need to be played with the expectation of eternity. Diablo II: Resurrected proves that Blizzard classics remain fascinating even now. It doesn't matter if this is your first trip or the thousandth hour, Diablo II: Resurrected is worth the time spent."
Dextro: "Diablo II: Resurrected has succeeded in achieving the goal of remastering the original game. Improved visual effects and spectacular cinematics present the game in a completely new light, creating the feeling that this is really your first playthrough. However, the dive is hindered by a lot of annoying bugs that will probably be fixed in the near future. We hope that as the patches are released, everything, of course, will normalize, but at the moment bugs can be so breaking the game that you will want to do something diabolical with your computer."
Millenium: "Diablo II: Resurrected offers an amazing graphics overhaul and proper controller support, but it's really not a remaster for the masses. It is aimed primarily at fans of the original game, and even nostalgia will not make you forget about the lack of improvement of many interface elements and gameplay. Because of this, it is difficult for her in many ways to try to compete with most newer games in the same genre. Let's hope that more changes will appear in the future, but even if it does not impose itself as a modern title, we still recommend it to players who want to discover the great classics in great shape, knowing that the game has an almost infinite life span for those who get hooked on its old formula."
JeuxVideo: "Rarely does a game get such a good name. Diablo II: Resurrected is a real resurrection of the computer classics of the 2000s with technical updates, but at the same time strict compliance with the original gameplay. In many aspects, the project could have been more relevant, but Vicarious Vision turned out to be largely true to the original material and practically did not change the game design and interface."
PCGamesN: "So far, Diablo II: Resurrected looks like a wonderful opportunity to play a classic action-RPG with superbly updated graphics and fixes, although far from perfect. New accessibility options are welcome and improve the experience for all players, but there is not much that goes beyond the basic industrial level. There are also gaps in the list of features, and some of them are alarmingly reminiscent of those in Warcraft III: Reforged. However, as soon as the servers come to life, I will return to Tristram with pleasure and hope that nothing else will spoil my experience of the game."
Diablo II: Resurrected is available on PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X/S, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Switch and PC in Battle.net.
