The artistic achievement is only one thingthat amazes me that the artists working with clean modern rendering and lighting, have managed to recreate the gritty, grimy, crepuscular atmosphere of the original pixel art, where shadowy details seem to appear in the dark.
What's more impressive is the feel.

That is how you sum Diablo 2 up - it's a highly binary game. It's either the other: hard or easy and gastronomic or minimalist, in-your-face action or deep theoretical thinking Diablo 2 Resurrected Items.
