I played this game a hell lot before it was on steam and recently bought the gold edition during the sale and enjoyed it once more. If you are burned out from other Action RPG games such as Diablo 3, this game will definitely be fun for you. I recommend getting the community patch to fix some crucial bugs as this game is not supported by the developer anymore. Online gameplay has been taken down some years ago aswell, but LAN is still possible obviously.
However, if you reach level 50+ in this game (usually by the time you finish the campaign for the first time on silver difficulty), xp gain really slows down a hell lot, so I recommend tweaking balance.txt xp gain by x10 multiplier to keep the game somewhat motivating.
Other than that it's a well designed game, the classes are very different from each other and deliver extremly solid character development and the loot system is very rewarding and motivating, even if the sets don't change from level 15 to 200 (max) they just gain higher stats which makes a 2nd, respectively third playthrough rather obsolete. The sound / voice acting in this game is brilliant and the enemies have some humourous / hillarious lines whenever you encounter / beat them. The heroes itself have witty and cheesy lines upon accepting quests / defeating bosses / hordes of mobs.
Although the quests are as simple as they could be (fetch me X of Y, go talk to Z) and the story being basically only a plot device to advance through the land, the world is very big and you can explore a hell lot of content.
I do recommend buying this game, if you want a fun timesink and like tinkering around with builds and combat arts (plenty of them available).
