    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

    For the most part, Blizzard has finally delivered on the Diablo 3 game that much of the community has long desired to play. Many mistakesFor the most part, Blizzard has finally delivered on the Diablo 3 game that much of the community has long desired to play. Many mistakes have been corrected in this new iteration of Diablo. Of particular note is the greatly enhanced 2.0 loot system and the removal of the auction house. After all this time, it's back to the Diablo roots of actually being able to kill for your own equipment.

    The new Act is atmospherically back to the doom and gloom we started this series with, which has been greatly appreciated by long term fans of the series. This is the dark Diablo we grew up with, where evil is actually evil and not some insanely stupid butterfly with magic powers.

    The crowning jewel on the entire expansion would have to be adventure mode. This expansion absolutely redeems Diablo back into the world of proper rogue-like games, with a completely randomized set of levels in the nephalem rifts. This change more than anything else has brought me back to the game with ravenous hunger for loots.

    Some of the changes are a little unwelcome, as trade has been significantly stifled entirely in this iteration, but when playing with friends it's still possible to swap legendary items within the same game, for a time anyway.

    Overall, this is much much closer to the Diablo 3 game I have wanted ever since the D3V launch.

    Better than D3, was fun for two months which is considerable amount, and. it will be getting better with every patch just like D3 did.

    Jay Wilsons Diablo 3 gets its first expansion. Does it fix the game? Hell, no.
    The new class (only 1) is mediocre.
    The rift system is boring

    Although the adventure mode is a welcome and even necessary addition, it is way overdue and should have been included in a free patch orAlthough the adventure mode is a welcome and even necessary addition, it is way overdue and should have been included in a free patch or better yet, the original game, which was a total sham. I cannot comment on the crusader, since i have not played him, neither will i. The real issue is that the same core problems of vanilla still persist in reaper of souls and will never go away.
    * Itemization is still problematic. Yes, you can more easily find loot suited for your character due to "smarter" drops. Yet, since there are no customizable stats, you still want the same old stats on each and every item. Vit, main stat, crit chance... It made the looting boring as hell before and it still does. No change here. It's still just an up the numbers game with very little thought required. I tried out Loot 2.0 extensively before the expansion hit and although they did rework the legendaries, they still do not provide build opportunities. Either they now have some sort of silly and barely significant proc effect or just add to the numbers. There are a few exceptions, but for the most part, switching legendaries is not drastically going to alter your playstyle.
    * Still very little character customization. The mystic artisan now offers transmogrification, which is a plus, but the real character customization should be in your choice of skills. More skills are viable now, but play out the same. The paragon system is also a lame, tacked-on quick fix for an actual stat allocation scheme. It's like admitting you were wrong not to include it, yet nevertheless not fixing it either.
    * Dps is still completely derived of your weapon damage which is retarded, since it can make you run around with weapons that your class should never be using and make you look moronic.

    This is all due to inital game design and will most likely never be fixed. Otherwise, they would have done it by now.
    Lastly, and this may be personal, but the price is way too high for an expansion, especially one of which half it's content should've been patched in free (adventure mode). Sorry, but 40 euros for a 3 hour act and one new class ? That's just a blatant rip off.

    Decided to try the game since the market sounded interesting; They removed the market a few days before I bought the game and refused to giveDecided to try the game since the market sounded interesting; They removed the market a few days before I bought the game and refused to give me a refund.

    This game took everything fun about D2 out. I tried playing it since I own it but it's just such a horrible tedious game that it is no fun at all.

    It's all limitations; you can't trade for stuff you need, you can't give others stuff they need, the game play is repetitive and boring, you could spend years playing but never get what you need to feel like you completed a character.
