The game is rock solid. When it works. Every review I've read (Game Informer, PC Gamer, IGN) mentions the dreadful always online requirement but then fails to lower the score for it. If you can't play the game, or the games requirements make said game less fun to play (lag and disconnects during solo play), then it should lose points. If the critics aren't going to lower a score because "the servers have been rock-solid for two days" then they are doing the readers a disservice. Critics are doing all of us a disservice because this is giving Blizzard and other developers a pass to include online only DRM, if your game is good enough. It's pretty short sighted too. What happens down the road when Blizzard shuts the servers down and you can't play the game period. Pretty big problem there. If you don't have a fast, reliable internet connection then don't buy this game. If you think the game is fantastic, but can't stand the online only, then dock it points and let developers know this is not okay. It's only fair to everyone.
