    So I've been on a hack 'n slash binge for the past week. Found this mod, and it's good. Go check it out.

    Reasons:

    1) Good and challenging from the DLevel 1. There's no usual fluff of going though the normal difficulty to get to the good stuff.

    2) Good gameplay variety (I picked mage elementalist). You're forced to use a ton of spells that appear imbalanced on paper (e.g. teleport) but the opposition is simply so strong esp. on higher difficulties that you have to use every tool in the box to survive. In D1TH2 many quests pose a challenge.

    3) Atmosphere is still top notch.

    This may lack longevity of bigger games like PoE but is definitely worth checking out for anyone who liked Diablo 1.

    Diablo - The Hell 1 HD still better. Removed by original creator due possible bugs but I found none so far. Must be jellyness and fear that people lost interest in TH2 garbage.

    TH2 is only good for technical improvement - working windowed mode, 60FPS etc. (which DTH1HD have) but gameplay changes are...debatable.

    Loot restriction where you won't get items for other classes means you won't make money by selling books anymore.
    You won't find useful item for other classes that way, loosing motivation to start a new one.
    Also - shared stash money making method is gone because muh multiplayer and soft down micropenises dev thinking that game about (vanquishing) evil put players to temptation, or whatever other reason.

    I played it a bit, the difficulty and hardcore mode are nice, but I hate the class design and smart loot. Splitting every class into a bunch of archetypes with predetermined gear choice was a terrible idea, e.g. with a warrior you have to pick a sub-class that determines if you're going to use exclusively 1h or 2h melee weapons for the entire game, can't use both:retarded:
