    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

I currently own 3 copies of Diablo 3; PC, Xbox 360 and now for the xbox one. To be honest I don't know why i bought all three should have just been a bit patient and waited and got it for the xbox one. Diablo 3 is a moderately enjoyable RPG on PC and 360 but with only an evening of playing it I'm enjoying it way more on the xbox one. Loot is more balanced, controls feel good and intuitive and visuals are pretty nice. Overall the game is just more fun than my experience on the previous versions though loot 2.0 did improve the PC version. Only frustration for me was still having to pay full price when i owned 2 copies already.
    If you've been holding out till now and you you loved Diablo 2 then this is finally a decent sequel that you'll enjoy.

I played first on PC and actually preferred the console version with the direct movement controls. Adventure mode (on both versions) helps extend the life of the game further. About the only negative point for me is that the menus on the console version are a bit clunkier than on PC. Expand

Well, I have never been one of thoseI have always heard about those people that can sit down a play a game for continuously 14+ hours . Well, I have never been one of those people. That was until now. I literally played 14+ hours straight. It is an addictive game - I have the feeling my girlfriend in putting a intervention together, If you like killing things and mindless fun this the game for you. Pretty visuals. Using the game pad works well (actually better than the PC version I have played.) Why not a 10? Well it can get a little monster killing repetitious, nothing that tarnishes the rest of the game but, be warned kill streaks of 60+ are not uncommon :) Expand

Polished seamless play in 3rd person with a good display. AI in creature design is lacking and this becomes more of a bash and smash affair also with magic. Still has some good map tricks and traps that will make you think before you act. Entertaining as a game that can be played over and over with different character designs. 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?
