I spent a little over a week playing Diablo Immortal and I was struggling to put it down.
This epic, fast-paced mobile RPG is like a dream come true in many ways.
It’s a massively multiplayer Blizzard title that you can carry around on a pocket-sized device.
I’ve longed for this for years, and it’s finally here.
The controls are not jerky: this is satisfying, intuitive and very easy to learn.
And you can even play with friends who don’t believe in you iPhone Escapades – and would rather play on the PC instead.
Diablo Immortal had poor reception when it was announced, mostly with everyone clamoring for Diablo 4.
But Immortal is an inherently good idea: if you want a Diablo-style RPG on your phone, there’s no better experience than this.
It’s real Diablo in every way – the classes, the playstyle, the story, the graphics, the sense of progression.
Joining the post-Diablo 2 franchise, we face a Lord of Damnation intent on imposing his devious will. So far, so Diablo.
Instantly, you’ll be taught how to move, shoot, cast spells, upgrade skills, equip gear, and more.
You enter combat almost immediately, and it never really stops, aside from the time you spend in camps, cities, and towns.
It all feels very natural. In fact, moving and placing spells feels even better than using a mouse and keyboard.
You can pan instantly instead of having to drag a mouse pointer over your body.
Of course, if you prefer to use a mouse (or even a joypad), you can.
If it’s the controls that’s holding you back from Diablo Immortal, bury those fears now.
I’ve played as a demon hunter and it’s immensely satisfying.
Skills, combat speed, and overall class satisfaction are fantastic.
You can also play as a barbarian, crusader, monk, necromancer, or wizard if you prefer.
This is an MMO: you see other players in the world and you can complete challenges with them.
There are parties, clans, warbands, and tons of dungeons and raids for you to participate in.
Bosses are satisfying, with specific mechanics to learn and counter.
The graphics look great on mobile, but it will be interesting to see how well this scales to PC.
And the story is engaging, with entertaining NPCs, great voice acting, and an easy-to-follow narration.
For a mobile game, this is easily a top-notch title.
Unfortunately, scoring Diablo Immortal is currently impossible.
I need to try my hand at PC and more importantly see how important microtransactions are.
From my playthrough so far, it’s entirely possible to have a fantastic time without spending a penny.
But will dedicated players feel like they have to spend real money to stay competitive? Only time can tell.
Right now I’m very impressed with Diablo Immortal. You get hours of high-quality mobile fun absolutely free, and it’s hard to beat.
Diablo Immortal release date is June 2nd, 2022.
There is no download cost for Diablo Immortal, but there are in-game purchases.
