    So... I'm guessing they lost the source code, right?

    All they had to do was to slap together a source port and spend all those years not on matching a new 3D game to the feel of a 20-year-old 2D game, but on re-drawing the sprites and iterating until everything feels right in hi-def 2D. It would've been cheaper, faster, and would've yielded a better result.

    Better yet, release the source code and just give D2 to the fanbase. They'd do a better job in a matter of weeks. Added bonus of much-needed good press.

    Fuck this industry.

    While the gameplay graphics look kind of OK-ish, I guess, the character models are fucking atrocious. The amazon is a complete trainwreck.

    Tha paladin was always black, albeit with somewhat caucasoid facial features.

    Also, thanks to the low-rez graphics it was easier to pretend the paladin was white.

    They went full-negro in the remaster, tho.

    Yeah the Paladin was definitely always black. They straight up Djimon Hounsou’d him in the remaster though.

    I always thought the paladin was some sort of north african or arab equivalent. He's about 30 shades darker now.

    Only problem is getting it to run on widescreen. There's a MOD but it works only in some versions.

    The blonde was hot now the face look like a trans, the assassin at least had few clothes now is a lesbian, and the sorceress you can see a bit of one tit now she seems like a forty year-old karen+M
    They just will ruin a classic perfect game.

    Real question is are they taking down the ability to buy or download the original diablo 2 on the bluzzard website like warcraft 3

    Anybody that has their old Diablo 2 manual would know the Sorceress in her artwork was a real FOX, undertits and all.
