Diablo = Much better storyline. Diablo II = Not so much. Diablo = You can finish the entire game with 3 other players. Diablo II = With 7 other players you can only beat an act. Diablo = You can do quests in games even if other players have completed it. Diablo II = If another player in the game completed the quest, then you can't do it. Diablo = No CD-key required.
