In our Diablo 2 Resurrected review, we scored the remake a strong 8 out of 10. When playable, it offers an enthralling loot-heavy RPG experience that looks stunning and can rope adventure parties in for hours on end. Here’s what we had to say in our conclusion:

Diablo 2: Resurrected is a great remake of a real classic. It looks and feels just how I remember it from playing in the early 2000s, but with cooler lighting and sharper graphics. It has a few control issues with when using a controller, but it’s still a must-play for anyone who used to play it and misses it, and a strong recommendation to anyone else who likes action RPGs, dark and grim atmospheres, or who just wants to experience a treasure from the now distant past.
