D3 was quite clearly rushed to release. With the systems they have in place now, I suspect I'd be still playing if it was released this way. Of course, PVP has still not been released. Probably my biggest issue with it was that after completing each difficulty level, you couldn't just freeroam and kill whatever you wanted whenever you wanted to. You were stuck replaying the story chapters/acts. It gets really old after a while. I don't know if they've changed how that works or not.
Anyway, while not really living up to my expectations, I still feel I got enough enjoyment out of it to justify the money I paid for it. It might not have been as great a $/hr value as some other games but I don't think the final product was so poor as to rate it "crap" unless you're using one of those fancy rating scales where 9.0-10.0 is good-awesome, and 0.0-8.9 is crap.
