There was no monthly pay. It was a single and multiplayer RPG.
What seperates it from an MMO, is that players hosted their own servers with up to 8? people playing at once as opposed to fewer servers with a lot more people on them.
What was so good about Diablo 2?
Well for starters it is a Blizzard game. So you know the quality will be there, and it will be a polished product. Blizzard also has a good reputation of having perfect or near perfectly balanced classes.
Diablo 2 was a revolutionary RPG in terms of graphics (at the time) and unique classes,skills,items(sets, uniques..) etc... Diablo 3 will only be more revolutionary.
What sets the Diablo series apart from other RPG's i believe is the linear story. It's the only non-sandbox style RPG i have played that actually plays very well and has great replay value.
I can't wait for Diablo 3. (or SC2 for that matter)
