Rog and I got our copies of Diablo III at midnight and played until 5am. (I'm getting waaay too old for that shit)
So far I'd give it a mixed review. It's not much different than Diablo II as far as game play goes. The story/dialog is a bit weak. The ability to customize your character through skill leveling and stats is very limited.
Hopefully they can improve upon the customizationabilty (is that a word? It should be.) with future updates.
You can play at four different levels. "Normal" should be renamed "easy", as it's the lowest level and is damn easy. It's essentially a tutorial level. After 5 or so hours of play I've only had to drink one healing potion, and even then, I probably could have gotten by without it.
That said, it's still the best button masher I've played since Diablo II.
