Diablo II: Resurrected (Nintendo Switch) Quick Early Impressions (Review Coming...)


I bought Diablo II (2): Resurrected for the Nintendo Switch a few days ago and can say I'm mostly satisfied with the buy at $39.99 so far.  The game became available on September 23. 

Despite being a 21 year old game, Diablo 2 is still fun but definitely feels dated and hasn't aged great especially if you've recently played Diablo III. 

The updated graphics definitely make the game playable even with the dated mechanics. I plan to take a deep dive into the game over the next month to come up with a definitive review. 

The Good 

👍Updated Graphics 
👍Updated Sound/Music
👍Includes 'Lord of Destruction' Expansion
👍Plays well as a Portable Game


The Bad 

👎Co-op isn't ideal on Switch platform
👎Widespread Connectivity Issues
👎Dated mechanics


Note on Connectivity Issues

A glaring issue for me so far seems to be connectivity issues that come up often when trying to play online. Hopefully these issues get worked out in the near future as it appears to be common amongst many players. There are widespread reports of players not being able to get their equipment as advertised too. We are still within the first week of launch so hopefully this is a non issue in the future.
