    Diablo III excels in this handheld version and its full edition shows how much work and new content the authors have put in it after the release. In addition, its coop is fun. [Issue#291]

    Diablo III lands on the Nintendo Switch, under the name of an Eternal Collection that brings two expansions to the original game. In what is without a doubt a magnificent adaptation of a monument of a game, players will find an immense challenge that will be accessible for beginners and compelling for veterans, with content that will easily reach over one hundred hours of gameplay, a top notch multiplayer component and the added handheld character of the Nintendo Switch. One of the finest games of the year to come out on Nintendo's console.

    The PS4 version is still the best, but we’re down to the nitty-gritty of which one looks better to reach that verdict and, honestly, to many players the difference will be an acceptable trade-off for the ability to play Diablo 3 on a handheld.

    Diablo 3 feels at home on the Nintendo Switch. With a constant 60 fps and the availability to play anywhere, it's a great addition to the family. The only sad part is that sSeasonal can't be played offline and the controls sometimes feel a bit clunky.

    This compilation of Diablo III and its expansions underscores how far the gothic hack n' slash series has fallen.

    If you’ve never played a diablo game before, get ready for hours of incredible combat, looting, and character progression.

    When beginning
    If you’ve never played a diablo game before, get ready for hours of incredible combat, looting, and character progression.

    When beginning the game you choose from one of 7 classes, each with very different play styles. As you play through the campaign your unlock new skills as you level up. Each skill having five modifiers that you can use to your advantage depending on your play style. The customization only goes deeper as you collect loot throughout the game to upgrade your skill set, until five minutes later when you find something better and better, and that loop continues until you are one badass demon slayer.

    Blasting through hordes of enemies in Diablo 3 has never felt better. Such a grindy game is perfect for this portable system. Leveling my character up for hours during my daily commute then plugging in the same character to run rifts with my buddies when I get home, is the what the Switch was made for. Finding a perfect balance of online and offline gameplay, which I have been dying for since the Switch was released. Especially playing a seasonal character, if you create the character and begin playing online, you can grind that character when offline and on the go, earning that coveted seasonal loot all the faster.

    Diablo 3: Eternal Collection on Switch has non-wifi required couch co-op and some special Zelda loot, including Ganondorf’s armor. Which is only cosmetic and quite expensive, allowing you to change the look of your existing armor, not acquire a special set.

    When playing D3 in handheld mode it looks fantastic and it certainly takes its toll as just under two hours of gameplay had my Switch at 30%, so make sure to pack your charger. Before playing handheld I was a bit worried that given the nature of the game, with so much going on, that it would be overwhelming, but that was quickly laid to rest. It feels great grinding through cave after cave of monster mayhem on the go. Even with enemies filling up my entire screen the frame rate didn’t drop, not once.

    Diablo 3: Eternal Collection is absolutely incredible on the Nintendo Switch. If you’ve never played Diablo 3 before, this is the perfect chance to jump into a game that will give you hundreds of hours of gameplay. With the amazing postgame, seasonal support, and addictive polished gameplay it's well worth the buy.

And I would contend itLet's get this out of the way... the Switch is simply not the graphical peer of its other console and PC versions. And I would contend it actually looks WORSE when docked than in handheld. There are definitely some rough edges graphically.

    Another problem is the lack of cross-play, but that was something I knew going in, so I can't be TOO irked about it. Still would have liked to carry my PC characters and jump in, though.

    That said, I still think it has quickly become my platform of choice for the game. Diablo 3 wasn't exactly known for its stunning visuals to begin with, and if you're coming from previous games in the series, you shouldn't be terribly turned off by it.

    Because most importantly, it keeps game performance up. It didn't matter how crazy the action got, I don't recall even the slightest hiccup in frame rate or processing. Blizzard clearly valued frame rate over fidelity, and it was absolutely the right choice.

    Meanwhile, coming from the PC version, I was honestly surprised how much smoother and more intuitive this game was to play from a controller over the PC's mouse and keyboard controls. It felt infinitely more natural, and I haven't felt compelled to touch the PC version in the last week.

    If you don't have Diablo 3 yet, this is the version you should get. Even if you HAVE another version, this is worth double dipping for.

I passed the first hours of the game going from one boring place to another, holding the attack button down till all the dumb cannon-fodder enemies were killed, gathering the loot, equipping the new items, watching some uninteresting badly-written dialogue about the return of evil and basic dark fantasy stuff and repeat. Most of the time you don't even have to dodge anything or make any planning about how to tackle large enemy groups, what items or skills to equip, it's just so brainless and bland altogether. I will raise the difficulty to extra hard to see if that improves anything but even if it makes the game more challenging i doubt it will become any more interesting because the setting is just meh, been there, done that, million times better in other games.
