    One of the best games for new consoles. Maybe even the best one. [Nov 2014, p.58]

    Now, with the Ultimate Evil Edition on PS4 and Xbox One, Diablo 3 takes on its highest form, melding the successes of two years of patching with the positive side-effects of porting to current-gen consoles.

    It's just a shame that some newcomers won't appreciate what the early adopters went through to make the fantastic game it is today.

    An incredibly stuffed version of the hack and slash action game with RPG elements presents itself in the best light for the new generation of consoles. Tons of content, well-made controls and superb co-op.

    The simple concept together with its motivating hunt for the bigger and better loot is a perfect fit for consoles – especially since there seems to be a drought in terms of classic hack-&-slay like Dark Alliance.

    Long time players will easily get sucked back in to grinding for legendary loot, but the rest may well be mystified by the obsession. Still this is undoubtedly the version to get if you haven’t been sucked in before now and all the bells and whistles add to the overall appeal.

    The gameplay itself represents the peak of the isometric "Dungeon Crawl" genre, with an amazing variety of settings, masses of loot to collect and trade for, and smart RPG elements seamlessly crafted into the adventuring.

I think this game just plays so natural with a gamepad. The inventory system is not perfect, but I'm not sure what else they could do to improve it. The changes that came with the Ultimate Evil Edition just make the game more enjoyable. Each player gets their own loot. The apprentice mode, which allow you to play with your friends even if they are a different level. The ability to import your previous console save is a great surprise. I do wish you had the option of importing your PC version as well. And there are a lot more great changes that I'm not going to bother listing here. Expand

    They really did a great job with this, same as the "ultimate patched up version" from PC but with a far slicker frame rate and textures.

    I played Diablo, Diablo 2 (w/ Expansion), and Diablo (w/Expansion) on the P.C. before they were released on platforms. I was nervous at howI played Diablo, Diablo 2 (w/ Expansion), and Diablo (w/Expansion) on the P.C. before they were released on platforms. I was nervous at how the controls would make the transition from P.C. to platform. The controls made the transition wonderfully though and the result is smooth combat. The graphics are great and really add a lot of character to the settings throughout Diablo 3. The expansion pack, rifts, greater rifts, and paragon levels all give this game a lot of play time. Playing with friends online is an enjoyable experience and I love the option to play multi-player locally! The only fault I have with this game is in the story. It can be a bit cliche' at times with some predictable dialogue. This isn't to say that the story isn't neat, but I wouldn't say it's worthy of a 10. I finished the game without strong connection to many characters throughout the story. The story though doesn't take away from it's incredibly addicting game play and character development. I would recommend this game to anyone. I would definitely get the expansion though as it adds a lot of value to the game. Expand

I just kept playing and playing. I liked the story and combat. The visuals where dumbed down for the console but thats ok. The sound was ok and the way Blizzard ported the controller scheme was great. But I have no idea how people can play past the story and just grind. Expand

    I don't get this game. It starts out well enough. But then you start to realize that every task and level is basically the same. Bash, bash,I don't get this game. It starts out well enough. But then you start to realize that every task and level is basically the same. Bash, bash, bash the A button. If you want to kill quicker, hit RT, lather, rinse, and repeat.
    I grew bored of this game fairly quickly. Such a shame.
    Also, I am virtually indestructible. I am playing on Hard. I can get into a mob of "bad guys" and let them attack me. My health drops a little with a hit but then regenerates to full. I literally can't die. What fun is that?
