36 Games Like Diablo

Games Like Diablo
Our collection of games like Diablo brings you more action role playing games with a hack and slash style of gameplay to play for hundreds of hours.

The core Diablo experience has mostly remained the same throughout the various game instalments with players controlling a character using a point and click control method in an isometric view. A recurring feature and key to the longevity of the series has been the use of random game elements from map layout to loot drops.

Each game in the Diablo series offers a wide selection of characters with their own unique skills and lore. While these characters have mostly followed standard RPG archetypes the Diablo series has done well at offering something different in terms of character choice and depth.

The games like Diablo here all offer a great action role playing experience with good old hack and slash gameplay that fans of the Diablo series will enjoy. Some of these games even offer more of a rouge-like experience for fans of that sub-genre. Games on this list also include free, online and mobile alternatives to the Diablo series.

Don’t forget that the games like Diablo featured below can be sorted based on their user ratings. We encourage all visitors to cast their own votes and contribute to these scores.
