44 Games Like Diablo

Games Like Diablo Our collection of games like Diablo 3 brings you more action role playing games that feature hack and slash gameplay that spans for hundreds of hours.

The core Diablo experience has mostly remained the same throughout the various game instalments with players controlling a character using point and click controls and 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 also offer more of a rouge-like experience for fans of the Diablo hardcore mode. Games on this list also include free, online and portable/mobile (Android, iPhone and iPad) alternatives to the Diablo series. Whether your favourite game was the original, Diablo 2 or you are seeking games like Diablo 3 you'll find an action RPG title for your style below.
