Hack n Slash

What is your favorite and why? I'm new to the genre (aside from Diablo).

Dungeon Hunter 5? Kings Road? The panda one? Etc

For last 12 months i have been looking for proper one, similiar to Diablo games. None of them are close, tried them all. I would like to try Icewind Dale but idont know how to play it and it seems very hard.
But there are some games coming, Angel Stone is coming 30th of July, Titan Quest as well and then Torchlight Mobile is in the work.
But as i said all Hack n slash / Dungeon Crawlers on mobile lack major things, to little, to short, no proper multiplayer/pvp.
Dungeon Hunter do not have co-op or pvp, to much pay2win.
Kingsroad, you can finish all dungeons in 30 minutes *great multiplayer though*.
Iesabel, no multiplayer, no servers.
Bards Tale, only singelplayer.
They all lack major things proper pc games have.
Baldur's Gate, i tried 20times, wasn't able to learn how to play it. To hard

They have yet to come out w a hack n slash that really *nails it*. Easy jump in multiplayer is the most important thing. I keep seeing these games that promise multiplayer but then it's a hassle. I don't want to have to spam chat, then find someone doing the exact same content, then have to type their convoluted name. It's just a pain. Levels need raid finder type ques, easy ways to group. Click their name choices type of thing. Star Wars uprising is the latest to dissapoint me with this. I'm waiting for Torchlight mobile to also fail me with similar problems.

Please can someone just nail that mmo, action RPGs multiplayer feel please?

Torchlight will be the one to do it. Its the closest we will ever get to Diablo I am guessing.

Icewind dale and baldurs gate aren't hack n slash games. They're deep RPGs following advanced dungeon and dragon rules. They're very deep and have huge worlds to explore. Well worth trying as they're classic games but don't bother if you want a quick hack n slash game
