It’s really the better ARPG atm, I really like the dark atmosphere reminiscent of the first Diablo :)

Looks like GGG has set the standard for F2P games. Some are saying the gameplay rivals that of Diablo III (Which I think it does). Plus, their forum support for bugs is very quick. This IS a great game and GGG deserves every penny they got from their fans.
