    Haven’t gotten to play yet but listening to the clips and reading the analysis makes me excited!

  2. Diablo’s music and atmosphere are some of its strongest points. Even Diablo II maintains a distinct sound and mood that cannot be found in other games. The audio alone bolsters the outdated graphics. The theme upon entering Tristram is chilling.
