    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 played it when the vanilla version released on the PC, but stopped after one solo playthrough because my computer couldn't handle multiplayer. I was shocked at how different the game felt when I came back to it on the XB1. Perhaps obviously, the most noticeable difference is you're playing with a controller as opposed to a mouse and keyboard. As others have said, using the controller just feels natural. But my favorite aspect of this game is how accessible it is. I love being able to turn it on and play from anywhere for 5 minutes to 5 hours, picking up right where I left off from my previous session. However, potential buyers should be warned that this game is highly addictive. Of course, not everyone will enjoy this type of game, but it is certainly worth a purchase in my opinion. Expand

    This version of Diablo III improves upon the already released console version, and with the recent updates to the game it has really had some legs. Blizzard has worked to make sure that patches/updates have caught up to the PC version.

    The only downside is the online play. Finding a random match of players who are not cheating is nearly impossible. I recommend solo online, or searching the web for legit folks to play with.

    This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. So, here we are again with the 'Expansion' pack to Diablo 3, Reaper of Souls. While this is the 'Ultimate Evil Edition', which includes Diablo 3 generously, it's essentially Reaper of Souls packaged differently. So, what has Reaper of Souls done to improve or stagnate the same tired mechanisms of Diablo 3?

    In a number of surprising ways, Reaper of Souls improved on Diablo 3. The crafting system for items and legendaries, while even more streamlined, has made the system very easy to understand and compatible in different playthroughs. There are now 'paragon' levels that allow you to continue levelling up past Level 70 (for some reason), so grinding is somewhat less of a chore. Also, Grinding is less of a chore not only by that but with these new 'Nephalim Rifts' that allow you to nab some pretty neat loot and materials for legendary items or breaking down legendary items for their powers. Health Potions, instead of being a set amount to carry, are now infinite and have a cooldown, which, once again, plays hard on 'streamlined', notably keeps the pace of the game going, as you don't have to micromanage potions (not like you would anyway with the thousands upon thousands of means to obtain health through items).

    Story, well, it's once again on the cutting room floor. The only silver lining with the story is there is actual closure with Leah's mother, who betrays you in the D3 only to disappear somewhere for you to go fight Diablo in Heaven. Malphael, some angel or whatever, wants to use the black soulstone to essentially rid of all death an destruction, but in doing so, has to kill innocent people in the process. This would be a means to convey a 'moral grey area' with malphael, but that aspect never gets treaded farther and only serves as a excuse for the Primevals to escape once more, as the Black Soulstone that has carried the Evils is broken at the last moment. So all in all, pretty meh in my opinions, but the area of Wayrest is very neat and varied, with a number of dynamic quests that can be amusing or enhance the lore around the city, with a much more 'spooky' feel to it than the whole of Diablo 3 (once again, not that I care, since I never thought that Diablo games were creepy anyway).

    The new class to the table is the Crusader, much in the same way as the Paladin in D2, is a more strength/faith based player who can dish out holy damage at an unprecedented rate, and equalizes with the Barbarian as a strength-focused player character against the other 4 classes that either were intelligence or dexterity based. While the crusader isn't necessarily original, the Crusader offers just enough callbacks to the Paladin and new tricks of it's own to differentiate it from it, as the Paladin was much more Dexterity based than the Crusader was.

    So while Reaper of Souls is still a hand holding bore of a experience that dreads on even with the new longevity added to it, ROS at least now has a much more satisfactory successor to the great Diablo 2. But certainly not it's DLC, Lord of Destruction.
