Diablo 4 on Metacritic: The best Blizzard game in years

Blizzard, Diablo, Game, Metacritic, years

The ratings for Diablo 4 in the overview.

Diablo is one of the most popular action RPG series ever, the gripping “looting and leveling” principle has brought the series a large fan base over the years. And that’s exactly what should have looked with eagle eyes at the first reviews and tests of the latest part Diablo 4, which should have been published since Tuesday of this week. And they show very clearly that Blizzard has done quite a lot right here.

In any case, the relevant rating aggregation sites currently have very presentable average scores for the Hack&Slay.

In our list you will find an overview of some selected test ratings for Diablo 4:

magazine rating
GameStar 85 to 95 (scoring bias)
IGN 9/10
Games Radar+ 5/5
destructoid 8/10
shack news 8/10
God is a geek 9/10
Game Rant 4.5/5
gaming trend 10/10
Windows Central 5/5
Push Square 9/10

This makes Diablo 4 the best Blizzard game in years in Metacritic ratings. More precisely, since Overwatch, which sacked an average rating of 90 almost 7 years ago. The current part currently surpasses its predecessor Diablo 3 by a few points, and Diablo 4 seems to be a highlight of the series history in any case.

That is praised and that is criticized

Lots of praise, little criticism – that runs through almost all reviews of Diablo 4 that have been published so far.

This is positive:

  • exciting and motivating fights
  • enormous scope
  • neat story
  • excellent endgame
  • nice graphics and great presentation

This is negative:

  • minor class balancing issues

Basically, the game leaves a very positive overall impression on most testers. Travis Northrup from Esports Extrassummarizes the game in his review as follows:

“Diablo 4 is a stunning sequel with near-perfect endgame and progression desEsports Extrasthat is absolutely unbearable to put down […]”
