    Heaps of new content provides hours of fun, even though the campaign could use a little extension. But if you’re a fan, this is a must. [Issue#241]

    With Reaper of Souls, and the recent round of content patches, Blizzard has transformed Diablo 3 into something far more akin to what long-time fans like me wanted all along.

    Diablo III: Reaper of Souls is a great experience and an excellent add-on to Diablo III. With the Adventure mode and Nephalem's Rift, Blizzard erases almost perfectly every inherent problems of Hack'n Slash games. It's actually quite difficult to find real defects in this add-on.

    The Auction House is gone, the loot system is fixed and we finally have a proper end-game that will keep both new and experienced players fighting for many hours to come.

    Reaper of souls is the perfect addition to Diablo 3 with loot 2.0. Loot feels less crappy, the Crusader is an interesting class – aside from the story – Act V is a pleasant experience. The strongest addition is the Adventure Mode though, that offers a whole new way to play.

    The Reaper of Souls expansion provides a great amount of content, changes and balancing that significantly improves and extends the original Diablo III experience.

    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.

    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

    Great expansion to a somewhat disappointing game. The new content basically turns everything you thought you knew from when the game originally release and gives it a shot of OMFG in the arm. Overall you'll get about 20+hrs of new content in a new act along with TONS of new content and Loot in it's new play mode that is offered after completing the new act. Great job Blizzard of doing a complete 180 on this game. Expand

    The only positive thing to come out of this DLC patch is we got to watch a few of the "pro" reviewers finally show some integrity and write an honest appraisal instead of rubber stamping a 1/10 game with a 9.5 solely based on its publisher. The party's over folks. It ended the day Activision took over, and now all that's left are some skid marks and half empty beer bottles on the front lawn.

    You rabid fanboys can choke it down holding your nose and pretend it's the best thing you've ever tasted all you like... the jig is up. Blizzard as we knew it no longer exists, and will never return to its former glory. The rest of us should save our money and support some real development shops who actually listen to their fans and don't just polish turds for years, acting like they're innovating by remediating broken promises.

    Blizzard already has your money for a game that was 10% of what it was supposed to be, and now are asking for 80% more just to move the game a baby step closer to what it should have been the first time. It would have been a far better long-term move to regain the trust and goodwill of the base they alienated by making this DLC available for free, the way Square-Enix did when they released a terrible game (FFXIV) then spent over a year redoing it and didn't make its players buy all the fixes as an "expansion". Then again, Square-Enix isn't run by Bobby Kotick.

    Every publisher can make mistakes. It's how they deal with those mistakes and how they treat their customers that defines their place in the pantheon of gaming. Olympus has truly fallen.

    Overall, okay. Better than D3V, but that isn't saying much. It's still not an ARPG. Still not anywhere close to as good as D2:LoD. Still has untapped potential that will never be realized, and still....everyone praising the game will abandon ship in a few weeks. Expand

    Just one character and raising the level cap is worth $40? For shame! This is not an expansion, it is a patch!
    So sad to see our once beloved
    Blizzard fall to such new lows. Expand

    A patch, masquerading as a game. This update to Diablo III should have been given to all previous owners for free. To charge full price to play this is criminal. Buying this game sends a message: "It is ok to sell terrible games, then patch them and resell them for full price....I'll still buy it!" Don't send that message to a wretched corporation like Activision. If you never played Diablo III, this version is better than the one many people already paid full price for, but it is basically the same game with a few features upgraded based on the horrible reviews of the original version. And in the end, it is still a let-down, compared to Diablo II. By comparison, Path of Exile is a similar game, and completely free. Expand
