Game Overview:

Having something or someone imitate a work is known to be the highest form of flattery. If this is true, Blizzard Entertainment really must be flushed from the latest offering in Darkstone because of the fact that this game is a direct translation of Blizzard's hit title, Diablo. Since Darkstone is a copy of a game, will it have no differences and just be another old game that everyone has already played before? No, Darkstone takes a lot from Diablo, but the game is good enough to stand on it's own. Sure the game plays a lot like Diablo, but there are a ton of new and different spells, different skills, different characters, and NPC characters to interact to. With all these new features including an excellent fully 3D rotational zoom in/out panning camera, what does the game sum up to? Pure fun and enjoyment for just about everyone. Anybody who enjoyed the original Diablo game and also enjoys action games with plenty of fantasy and plenty of playtime hours will enjoy Darkstone.
