Game Review - by Dan Piparo
Diablo is a role-playing adventure that invites you to enter a world of dark gothic fantasy; Where evil has corrupted the land and shackled humanity into unholy slavery. Play as a brave Warrior, cunning Rogue, or mysterious Sorcerer. As you venture deeper into the labyrinth, you'll discover weapons, armor, and magical treasures, and develop your character's skills and abilities. These are the tools you will need to battle the lord of all evil, Diablo.
You might also want to bring a friend or two to help, with the built-in support for Battle.net, as well as modem, serial, and network play, insures that you'll never have to go in alone. Embark if you dare on a dark and sinister quest that will pull you into the very depths of hell itself ... and then beyond.
The kingdom of Khandaras has fallen into chaos. An unknown force of evil has swept across the land, plunging it into civil war and terrorizing the populace. A mad king, his missing son, and a mysterious Archbishop are all pieces to the puzzle that faces you.
You have journeyed to the source of the evil, the town of Tristram, now inhabited by only a handful of survivors. The cathedral there is built over the ruins of an ancient monastery, and now eerie lights and sounds are heard echoing through its abandoned halls. Perhaps the answer lies within the remains of a forgotten past.
Are you ready to embark on the most daring of all quests, to conquer and destroy the Lord of all Evil, Diablo ...
