Diablo 3: Reaper of Souls Review
17 October 2014
Excerpt: When we last left our hero Diablo, the Lord of Terror wasn’t all that scary anymore. In fact, he’s probably been a bit lonely. The joy of killing Diablo 3’s big boss alongside Blizzard’s army of players has long since faded for those who haven’t already abandoned the game at some point since its May 2012 release. In its place, we’ve had endless runs: Alkaizer. Crypt of the Ancients. Keywardens.
Pros: Tremendous upgrades to gameplay, looting, and experience system; auction house is gone; excellent gameplay balance.
Cons: We miss the amazing, character-driven, CG cutscenes; player characters lack personalization; could use even more skills, runes, and customization.
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.
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.
Summary: What motivates the heroes of Sanctuary to battle the forces that threaten humanity? Is it an unwavering desire to do what's right? Or is it a thirst for more power, more riches, and more stuff? Whatever it is, Reaper of Souls has it. This expansion adds a decent new character class, a great new campaign act, and most significantly, Adventure mode, a devious Blizzard concoction calculated to make Diablo III 's existing content more rewarding--and more addictive--than it...
Pros: New story content features haunting locations and a great villain, The rewarding Adventure mode revitalizes Diablo III's existing content, Also adds a new class, cool new skills, and a new artisan to the game
Diablo III: Reaper of Souls: Better, Faster, More Fun
10 February 2014
Conclusion: Let's be clear: Reaper of Souls is still in beta, which means there's plenty of mechanics that aren't working at the moment. Crafting is still a work in progress. Game balance continues to change significantly from patch to patch. Some new character abilities aren't implemented yet. There are encounters that need tweaking and class mechanics that should probably be revisited. Certain mechanics aren't functional, or aren't functioning correctly.
