Conclusion: Concept: Continue the battle against evil with a new class, new act, and new gameplay modes
Graphics: Act 5 architecture and design are interesting enough. Core graphics are the same as the original title
Sound: Monsters being smashed, crushed, burned, and hit with giant rocks from the sky.
Excerpt: here on AtomicGamer back on the first few days of its release, but I admit that I severely underestimated the effect the two Auction House systems that it launched with had on nearly every aspect of the game.
Excerpt: I won't really say that I necessarily regret giving Diablo III such a positive review here on AtomicGamer back on the first few days of its release, but I admit that I severely underestimated the effect the two Auction House systems that it launched with had on nearly every aspect of the game.
Excerpt: Reaper of Souls , the highly anticipated expansion to Diablo III is finally out and does a lot to make an already good game better. Bringing three new additions to the base Diablo III game does a lot to strengthen and improve upon what is already there, and also gives the game plenty of new content and legs to make the endgame more meaningful.
Excerpt: It has been said that the ‘Angel of Death’ can’t be stopped… but legends say that the ‘Nephalem’ is capable of putting an end to all evil on Earth. Will this Nephalem be able to stop Death? If not, then all is doomed.
Conclusion: This score is based on the number of Legendary items I found during my first day with the game (The .4 was because one of them wasn't used by my class). You could have had a ten Blizzard, you could have had a ten. That said, Loot 2.0 helps soften the blow of getting gameplay modes that could have been patched in, and a story that is over in no time flat.
Summary: Reaper of Souls is a welcome addition to the Diablo 3 game. It’s helped to correct a lot of problems the core game had with better loot systems, more end-game content and a new act for you to explore. While it’s kind of sad that Blizzard “played it safe” with some of the expansions features, the game is still worth trying if you like the experience of monster killing and loot collecting. Now excuse me while I try to farm for a Puzzle Ring and Thunderfury.
Conclusion: Does Reaper of Souls justify its asking price of a full game? If it only presented itself with Act V then no, but the inclusion of an all-new-ish character class and Adventure Mode does soothe the sting. Reaper of Souls, in conjunction with the Loot 2.0 patch, finally brings us the Diablo III we want and that fans deserve.
Excerpt: The Good : Lots of engine tweaks. New character type. New single player content. The Bad : Variable difficulty. Only about 5 hours of new content. The Ugly : Will likely appeal to mostly hardcore players. To give you some sense of how little I played Diablo III after I had handed in my review, let me relate to you the following story.
