Showing 1-10 of 19
Ridiculous over priced

Summary: The expansion itself is fine, actually much better than the original Diablo 3. However, it's overly expensive since it does not add much play value to the game. The worst thing is that you have to have the original Diablo 3 to play the expansion. This further makes the expansion price ridiculous (even worse than StarCraft 2: HoS which at least provides a whole new campaign instead of merely only a chapter). The whole D3 itself is always in beta stage.
Summary: What a pity. This COULD have been a 5 star game. Lots of fun to play if this is your thing. The problem is, connecting to the Blizzard servers and staying connected. I CONSTANTLY and I mean CONSTANTLY am dropped and often find it difficult to get back on as well. The problem is, when this happens you lose what you've done since the last checkpoint.
Summary: The games does a good job in expanding the story. But the price does not justify for the amount of game we get. The main problem is, they charge a new retail game price for something shorter then the original game. Major issues I have come across, seems like Blizzard has gave into pleasing the masses. The first time through this "xpac," I had 9 Legendary items drop and a set item. The second time through 15 Legionaries, and 3 more items to that set armor.
Summary: 3/31/14 - I will continue to update this review as time goes on. I wrote a less than favorable review of the original Diablo 3. My major complaint was that the game was so short. Many people told me it was unfair to criticize the initial game time, because you continue to play the game at increasing difficulty levels, but I stand by my review that having to play a game 4 or 5 times to say you "finished it" is ridiculous.
Summary: It's a good expansion and as usual the CE is full of neat little add ons. But......and this is a big but, will you find paying $90 for another 7 hours worth of the game worth it? There are many out there that feel this is more of a DLC than an actual expansion and in some ways I agree with them. While drastic improvements have been made in the game, those could have been made (and were) outside of the expansion. So.
I simiply don't have the time to find all the gears that I need and eventually game plays became boring. Big mistake that Blizza

Summary: Arrived on time. Pre ordered. Game itself is addictive and I have been playing original D3 for a couple of years. Ever since removing AH, I have lost my interest for this game. I simiply don't have the time to find all the gears that I need and eventually game plays became boring. Big mistake that Blizzard decided to take AH out which is a shame. Also I lost all my usual friends even after RoS came out.
Summary: And Blizzard don't seem to undersand this old saying at all. When you start playing Reaper of Souls it seems wonderful. 'Wow! what an awseome weapon", "Woah! that shield is fantasic!" And all this in the first phase level 61. You feel like God all of a sudden. You higher up the difficulty level, as otherwise the game is ridiculously easy.
This is something you can borrow from your friends.............same style playing and no cinematics cept the intro

Summary: Really REally save the money. This is a game you can definitely pass on. Blizzard really cheaped out on the cinematics department, which now is what really what everyone likes to see in a game.
