    They tried to clone it, but they ended up with three legs, half a brain, and the intestines on the outside of the body.

    I remember completing Demonstone by using only two spells:
    -Magic Bomb
    -Magic Bomb Rank II

    What a waste of time.

    There's also The Chosen: Well of Souls. It's not very good. Actually, it's not good at all. The first stage has some atmospheric locales, but that's it.

    And then there's Greed and Harbinger, both not-hard-at-all Sci Fi.

    Edit:

    Ah, yes, and then there's Dawn of Magic and Silverfall. The former is quite bad. The later is actually quite charming, even if the gameplay is kind of crappy. It has both Steampunk Goblins and, better yet, Steampunk Necromancers, so all is forgiven.

    Silverfall was quite cool in my opinion. But you need to install the expansion-pack, Earth Awakening, because that fixes most of what's wrong with the original (camera, controls, UI, gameplay etc)

    I remember Throne of darkness had some pretty interesting ideas and nice, gory atmosphere although I remember it wasn't too good.

    A few more:
    Hellgate London
    Loki
    Mythos (MMO)

    Hybrids (by a reeealy long shot)
    Die by the Sword
    Rune

    You could count Borderlands in as well. Yeah, it's a shooter, but the mechanics are quite similar.

    This list is getting pretty cluttered,

    Prince of Qin has roughly IE-engine controls, i.e. you can pause and give orders to multiple characters (the same goes for Dungeon Siege 1 and, I presume, 2).

    Throne of Darkness controls are kind of like KotOR, you have multiple characters you can switch between, whichever characters you aren't controlling will run around like chickens with their heads cut off. (And it's not Chinese, it's Japanese)

    Die by the Sword is an action game, not an "action rpg", it has a real action game control system. (the same goes for Rune to a slightly lesser extent)

    Can you move Dung Siege to shit tier? PURE DIABLO CLONES? Are you fucking nuts? It is not even a diablo clone. (gameplay differs significantly, yes it is top down and has loot but isn't an action game).

    I vaguely remember Soulbringer but I think its more of a proper RPG then Diablo clone.
