    Diablo 3 Ultimate Evil Edition is undoubtedly an essential package, including updates made available throughout the two years of its existence that make this game almost perfect.

    The ultimate action-RPG.

    Diablo III Ultimate Evil Edition is the best version of the famous game you can find in consoles. Many new mechanics added to the PS4 version, stacking with the already deep game mechanics, altogether with the chance to get the same improvements as the PC version in the future, makes it the best next-gen hack'n slash RPG.

    Thankfully, small touches, such as ‘Apprentice Mode’, help the overall concept: players of different levels can still crawl together without the lower levelled character feeling useless.

    Diablo 3 may have been first on PC, but it is most definitely better on console.

    Delivering the full HD experience, Blizzard’s jump to current-gen consoles is a flying success.

    It's great with a group and fine if you're playing alone, but I'd still say that, if you're able, the PC version is the one to get unless you're specifically looking for a local co-op mode.

    Finally this is the definitive edition of Diablo 3. Any fan of Diablo should play this right away. Well worth the money. So much content in this game that it will make your head spin. Expand

    When they announced that Diablo 3 would be coming to the PS4 along with the Reaper of Souls DLC, I knew this was something I couldn't pass up. I have always been a dungeon crawler fan (Champions of Norrath anyone?) and with the power of the PS4 along with it, Diablo 3: Ultimate Evil Edition is an RPG that you can't miss! Anybody who is a fan of Diablo needs to pick this up, grab some buddies, and begin pushing back the forces of Hell! Expand

    This game is amazing. As a kid I remember waking up before school EXTREMELY early to play the original Diablo. This game goes even higher. It's got my wife (who is in no, way shape or form a video-gamer) staying up in all wakes of the night playing this game. It's an amazing game and I can for sure say it's my favorite game on my PS4 right now. Expand

    A great game with a great feel of combat. This game is pretty much flawless when it comes to gameplay, the graphics are beautiful, the multiplayer is amazing, and it's easy to play. this game has an added "co-op" mode if your playing with friends at your place. it's a fun game to play when drunk i say because the controls are simple. the character customization fits really well as you can tailor your character to your likings along with the many various classes, yet one thing which would be nice is if you could actually change the face of your character and his/her build. Once your done the campaign the game's purpose is to level up to get better armour and so on. the only other game that is this "hack and slushy" in my opinion is "space marine". this is defiantly worth looking into.

    -a solid 9/10

    Never played Diablo before and not so many great games for PS4 yet so picked this up today. LOVE it! I got up to level 21 crusader in about 8 hours or so. Best game for PS4 yet. Expand

    This game is fantastic! I played it on PC but got it for PS4 to play with a group of friends coming over for a weekend and we had a blast. I like it more than on PC - I just feel I can spend more time with it while playing on my couch and not at my desk. The only reason this is not a 10 is because of the menu when playing with friends - it takes forever to change gear/level up and everyone usually has to do it at the same time. The storage is a big improvement though - I like the PC version of it but it takes more time to organize. With this console menu setup you can just pick loot up and not worry about it, making it a quicker pick up and play game. A forge all button would be very welcome but I digress. Overall great experience and I do not think I could go back to playing it on PC, ever. Expand

    Tried this on my PS4 since I wanted to play from the couch. It sucks compared to the PC version. Why bother?

    Waste of money and time. Damn.
    Disappointing. Expand
