Let me just state then I loved Balder's gate game. So that would have been fine with me. I loved Red Alert 2, didn't care for Warcraft III much. I suppose what I meant by Diablo 2 is more a non-turned based combat system with monsters free-roaming like the ants and such or enemies in locations. I did love the intelligent AI of Fallout 2 though. So yes in that regard Diablo 2 sucked huge ones compared to Fallout 2 when it came to that or story line. I'm speaking about the combat system used in Diablo 2. No it wasn't the best, probably one of the AD&D games like Balder's gate was better but then I didn't like certain aspects of isometric combat like when I would use a bow-arrow or a web spell never seemed to work how I wanted it to. So I stuck with Javelins and spells and stuff like that.
