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: 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: 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.
Summary: Death has stolen the Black soulstone and it's up to the Nephalem to once again come to Sanctuary's rescue. Diablo 3: Reaper of Souls is much more than a mere expansion, it's truly expanded Diablo 3 to new heights and depths. Read on!
Conclusion: 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. It still requires that annoying always-online connection (which has behaved itself), but it’s more sinister in tone, more rewarding to play, and more maddeningly addictive than it’s ever been. I’m looking forward to many more hours in search of that perfect legendary drop.
Pros: Dark atmosphere, Adventure mode, Constantly rewarding, Visual diversity
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: Diablo III: Reaper of Souls is the first major expansion to arrive for Blizzard Entertainment's PC hit Diablo III . Players that have already mastered the game's main campaign with multiple character classes will be able to breathe new life into the game with the addition of an all new act for the game's storyline and a brand new character known as the Crusader.
Summary: Diablo 3 came out 2 years ago on PC and Mac and the general consensus, after getting through the infamous Error 37 debacle, was that it delivered a good dungeon crawling role-playing game experience. Even so, it was no match for Diablo 2 due to quite a few faulty mechanics, from the bad loot system that drove people to the Auction House, to the troublesome difficulty system
Pros: +Addictive Adventure mode, +Varied environments in Act 5, +Impressive Crusader class
Cons: -Act 5 story is a bit short, -Act 5 boss battles aren't that impressive
