I am dissapointed, to be honest. Diablo 2 was a fucking legend, and there has been so much hype about D3 that it NEEDS to be fatastic.
But, the graphics look like shit. It almost seems like its using the World of Warcraft engine. It's too blocky and cartoonish. Diablo 1 and 2 were known for looking gritty and realistic.
From the videos and screenshots it just looks like a kids game.
Don't agree with me? Look at this:
And now, lets compare with this:
Now which one to you looks more detailed and realistic?
This is an excellent edit of how I think the game should look like:
The creepy feeling is something we are (or at least should be) striving for here. now, nobody expects every location to be bland and grey, as yes, even in d2 there were 'nicer' environments. However those Diablo 3 dungeons do NOT look creepy, those dungeons do NOT look dark, they do NOT look uninviting, and they sure as hell do not depict the true diablo feeling, or at least what it should be at this point. Where is the never ending darkness? the fear of shadows?
The problem lies with the stupid colors in many of those pictures. the green, purple, and blue glows that seem to be emanating from nothing at all. Plus, many objects are just too bright.
But hey, maybe I'm just being fussy. It's way too early to tell what the game will be like, and knowing Blizzard I'm sure its gonna kick ass.
