    they said they went through a few revisions on the art direction before they got to where they are. I'm pretty sure the end result will be good. i trust blizzard.

    the barbarian in the trailer got his head ripped off by the boss. I think the game will be fine

    I agree that diablo 3 should be a bit more gloomier -- that's kind of what made the original diablo great: it was scary. The soundtrack itself was awesome as well.
    So in general:
    -More shadowy which goes along with a certain light radius as mentioned previously
    -A more Diablo 1-esque sound track
    -GLOOM

    Rub mud over your screens if you want a browner game.

    Otherwise it is fine, and i think some people need to look up the definition of the word cartoonish, because I dont think what it means is what you think it means.

    Creepier than a D2 dungeon. Enemies move a lot more fluidly, monsters are faster, they come out of nowhere (tell me you didn't soil yourself in awe when the first waves of ghouls came climbing up the walls out of the depths and just kept coming).

    A change in tone maybe, mostly via soundtrack, would give a better bite to the dungeons...but something doesn't have to look like Silent Hill to be creepy. Diablo isn't a horror genre, it's a hack-n-slash adventure RPG. Don't expect to be crying over scary monsters, just enjoy it for what it is. The new animations and creature designs are beautiful, the story-progression sequences are fluid and realistic, and just overall player-game interaction is through the roof.


    D2 was actually a pretty shallow game, two dimensional gameplay in more than just graphics. D3 is adding that third dimension, and I'm loving the way it's working out. I'm in love with the graphical style, and adding the now-cliched grime and sewage layer to the game just isn't necessary.

    Seriously. Silent Hill 2 didn't have as Hi-Res, dark-ass looking monsters as that Siege beast...and it's one of the most classically horrifying and "non-cartoonish" games out there. D3 is NOT cartoonish, and you need to get over the idea of anything Blizzard puts out looking like a Hollywood special-effects movie all through basic gameplay...Blizzard doesn't build games that require everyone who plays them to buy brand new custom computers.

    Just because everything isn't stained with blood and so dark you can't see half the screen doesn't mean it's cartoonish.

    The only people that care about it's current artistic direction are basement-living nobodies.

    The game looks fairly copied of various games but it's nowhere near World of Warcraft. The latter looks like as it is due to bandwidth constraints.*
