    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.

    This is Diablo 3’s best shot at a fun end-game that can last.

    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 playingAbsolutely 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

    The Good....First off, RoS is a big upgrade and improvement from Diablo 3(classic). They have made many improvements. The bounty and riftThe Good....First off, RoS is a big upgrade and improvement from Diablo 3(classic). They have made many improvements. The bounty and rift systems and adventure mode as a whole are what D3 needed all along. The new act is a lot of fun for the most part, though the pandemonium fortress is kind of a letdown for the big clamactic ending. The new class is ok, not my cup of tea but enjoyable if he fits your play style.
    The bad...Rifts are far and away most efficient/best way to farm itemsupgrades and are honestly, not a lot of fun. They are completely random and while some are ok, many others are just an absolute pain...you get to where you enter the rift and just roll your eyes when you see the layout/mob density or lack there of. Bounties are my favorite, but are unfortunately at the moment, best and most effeiciently farmed on the easiest difficulty level, which is not a lot of fun. There is really just an overall lack of rewarding things to do, its basically rifts one after another after another or easy mode bounty runs.
    The Ugly.....Blackthornes...anyone whose played will know what I mean by this. No trading, 9/10 "legendaries" you get will be absolute junk. Drop rates would be fine if trading was allowed, but being that game is BOA and all self found, it needs a bump ina bad way. Clans are basically pointless. Communities are about the same. There is essentially no reason to ever interact socially with anyone in this game. And theres the coup de gras.....the new PS4 version will have trading, gifts to send, nemesis mode, basically all tyhe things the PC fans have been asking for, and they(pc gamers) are now getting a huge FU from Blizz for doing nothing more then being the first ones to buy and support D3:RoS.

    Typical to modern AAA titles, nice shiny gfx and smooth controls. The combat is very fluid and fun which is super important to a hack n slashTypical to modern AAA titles, nice shiny gfx and smooth controls. The combat is very fluid and fun which is super important to a hack n slash and they got that about spot on. Great design there. However apart from those aspects the game is very bland, lacking depth, made with what feels like a complete lack of passion on the devs part. Really has that corporate AAA gaming feel to it.

    Overall a less interesting play than D3v and painfully mediocre. I think the days of Blizzard coming up with a top notch game like Starcraft or Warcraft 3 are over.
