The first thing I noticed about D2 is that the levels are well crafted. While this is nothing new for the series, they seem just as solid here. In some ways, the occasional one seems to be a bit more of a puzzle than usual. Of course, most of the time you can rush in if you’ve been grinding away for levels, but even then sometimes that doesn’t promise victory.Read More
