    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

    To proppery begin a review of Reaper of Souls, I must first make a short summary of my feelings towards the original Diablo 3. I thought itTo proppery begin a review of Reaper of Souls, I must first make a short summary of my feelings towards the original Diablo 3. I thought it was terrible - the story made no sense, it was full of gameplay issues, the whole thing could be beat within 8 hours (streching it) and overall: it wasn't fun. It wasn't good. It wasn't the Diablo 3 I had waited 10 years for.
    Fast forward to a month ago, when patch 2.0 got me interested, so I installed the game again, and I was quite surprised to find myself enjoying it. I even came back for more. I gave it some thought, and when I took into consideration that the game director was changed, I thought I would give him the benefit of the doubt, and 40 bucks along with it, and get the upcoming expansion.
    Cometh the 21st of March, it was a stormy night, and I was up until 5 AM with my clanmates and friends, having an online launch-party for a expansion we, honestly, did not expect to be even half as good as it was.
    Reaper of Souls was the best thing Blizzard could have brought up to the table on such a short notice as almost two years. I am sure that with the now proven capabilities of the new director, there will be much more and much better to come.
    Graphically, what Reaper of Souls brought to the mix is amazing. It has a much more Diablo feel tha any of the previously visited locales. I fell in love with Westmarch from the moment I started Act 5. The only grudge I have with Reaper of Souls graphically, that the pre-designed tilesets that are made to be swapped randomly with every map generation are too chaotic at times, but this is a flaw I suppose we will see fixed.
    The Sound in this game is better than ever. Don't get me wrong - I like the Diablo 3 soundtrack, but I found that most of the tracks there are weak, I even used to pay with the music off. There were just around 3-4 tracks I liked, like the Main Theme and Tristram's theme. Reaper of Souls has a much better musical score - the compositions are much more classical and moody. Too bad the game didn't come with the OST, which I will most certainly get. The voice work, as typical for Blizzard, is indeed top-notch, though I did find some of the new lines for certain classess to be somehow not in character.
    Storywise, I think this is the best we are going to see of Diablo 3. Don't get me wrong - I know bad storytelling when I see it, but take a moment to remember how blatanlty stupid the original story was, and further more - take into account that it's a Diablo game and it does not need that much of a story. But I must give props to the team for thinking up additional story-lines, which are very interesting. Also, I have to mention that every character-class has his own little dilhema in the story - it's not the same for everyone, and it is very well thought out. I believe most major critics missed this, because if you noticed - they all have played with just one class, so I hope more people have noticed this. It's actually pretty damn awesome, though poorly executed. But again - it's a Diablo game.
    Gameplay is the core of this game, and with Reaper of Souls it is better than ever. The new loot system makes the game more fun and addictive, I find myself playing every day, even if it is just for a quick Bounty - the new Adventure mode that they have included is not only the perfect alternative for leveling, if you have grown tired of listening to Azmodan giving away his battle strategies (because, you know, master strategist!), but also very rewarding for loot-hunting and exploring. The only grudge I have is the class addition - it is only one, and not a good one in my opinion. Not only that I dislike him, but we must take into account that not everyone has the patience to level up such a tanky class. He isn't hard, he is just slow and boring. I don't think the Crusader is useless or doesnt fit in, but rather I think that Blizzard should have included two classess, so that everyone gets a shot at something new, not only paladin-wannabes.
    Overall... speaking as a man who hated Diablo 3 - a game that he was waiting for for years, a man who's favorite game used to be Diablo 2... I must say I got my Diablo 3. And I most certainly look forward to the next expansion. I don't think we'll be seeing PvP anytime soon, but they have also concluded the story-ark, so I'm actually quite enjoying the suspense. I have no idea what Blizzard's Diablo 3 team will come up with for the future, all I know is that I am much more trusting of them now.

    PS: I must admit that most people writing reviews here are talking nonesence. Act 5 is longer than the entirety of the other 4 acts (seriously, it takes about 7 hours (including side-quests) to beat the original 4 acts, and it took me 9 hours to beat Act 5, and I have not yet seen everything). I just wanted to mention this to everyone who is confused about people accusing Reaper of Souls of being a DLC - it's not - long new act, new class, new mode - it has nothing to do with DLC.

    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

Nop its exactly the same stuff as original diablo 3. They just raised the skill lvl by 10 and multiplied stats by 3 and that's it. You pay 40 dollars for something most companies would call a DLC and charge 5 dollars for. This is just waste of money. There is still no itemization or character customization Expand

    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.
