There are many Diablo-esque games out there, and there will probably continue to be many. Guardians of Middle-Earth is definitely among my favorites though. Of course, it's aided by taking place in the Tolkein-verse, but there's a lot more to it. There's a plethora of playable characters with different playstyles, great multiiplayer modes if you can find people to play with, There are aslo many quests and many ways to play, giving the game plenty of hours of content. It's not the best game ever, but it's really good for what it is and worth the cash.
