    Here we all are, in a game without end, a game exponentially better than it was when it came out a few years ago. It’s almost like Blizzard called this thing Reaper of Souls as a joke about the game itself instead of just a reference to whoever that guy was in the boss battle at the end of Act V that I’ll never have to play again.

    Blizzard manages to turn Diablo III into the Diablo II sequel everybody wanted. If you ever enjoyed any of the episode of the series, you can spend hundreds of hours with Reaper of Souls.

    It took Blizzard almost two years, but with Reaper of Souls they have finally perfected Diablo III, showing us why we keep coming back for more even if sometimes we're unfaithful to it with similar games.

    This is the Diablo III we should have gotten at launch. loot is the most important element and the adventure mode is great.

    Diablo III: Reaper of Souls brings the new, refreshing content the fans have been waiting for. With the new storyline, the Crusader and the Adventure Mode, you can spend hours bashing monsters again. Sadly, in some ways the expansion looks more like a big patch which makes Reaper of Souls look a bit too expensive.

    Reaper of Souls is an excellent expansion without a shadow of a doubt. The Act V is perfectly designed and although it doesn't last long, the great replayability of the game makes it just a minor issue.

    It’s really only giving fans of the original a few more toys to play with. Unfortunately, the $40 price of admission weighs heavy on this title, and the sparse new content doesn’t quite justify it. In short, if you weren’t a huge Diablo III fan then Reaper of Souls won’t change your mind. However, if you enjoyed the original then Reaper of Souls adds a new class, several new environments, and a bunch of replay value.

    A much better improvement from the vanilla D3. I gave up on D3 after the first month but I was pleasantly surprised by RoS. Removing the auction house was the best move they made, you now have to work to get your gear instead of being pressured to play the auction house or fork up real money. Expand

    I have played d3 vanila but didnt like it, apart the combat feeling. Then I switched to tl2 and poe, other arpgs that feel better than d3. But after this expansion I can say that d3 ros is now one of the best arpg here, diferent from poe and others, unique in this genre. Ladders also in 2/3 months and the game is perfect. Dont compare to other arpgs, is the same genre but diffrent focus, and one important thing:not less deep than its "complexity", like other recent blizzard game. Approach the game with fresh mind, and u'll see that is a great game in many aspects. Expand

    Absolutely zero problem at launch with ROS, closed option to buy items from shop with real money or gold, improveed loot system for playing yourself and not to use AH/RMAH, new act and character, new end game...well, this game already gave me 700h and now is completely better and totaly diffrent as it was at start. Well made. Deserved 10 this time and I am going to upgrade my ROS to CE right now. /update, can not beat last act under 10 hours, its a real beast, if you explore and kill everything/. Just ignore reviewers, who does not buy the game and judge after few minutes playing at friends. Expand

    My score is 7 because Diablo is set on the right track. Better late than never. Yet there is not enough material to say that this is a decent expansion, they should've better called it a dlc pack. Expand

    What i wish to point out in my review is that for someone like myself, who did not purchase original version, RoS means a nearly 80-100$ costing shot at a game that seems to be average/good. Not a very appealing offer.

    There should be some cheaper D3+RoS package for those who have have not played the original game at all, let alone a demo version of expansion to see for myself if all the fuss is worth my time.

    1 act 1 class for 40$ is just too few. Still no endgame. Also, BoA will kill the game. Basically everything Kripp says in his review is true. Surely people are hooked now and will be for some days, but in a couple of weeks even the slower one will realize the trick. Expand

    I dont even know where to start this review, everything is sad about this title i dont usually even bother to log in and write reviews of games but this heap they call an expansion is clearly not 2 years of work worths. Blizzard you should be ashamed of yourself releasing such a restricted game with no trading at all except for the players that was in your game when the item dropped.

    I feel ripped off quite frankly, it will surely be the last game i ever buy from you blizzard. And im sure im not the only one feeling that way.
