Single-handedly saved Diablo III

Summary: Reaper of Souls fixed the major issues with Diablo III. It removed the real money auction house. It made looting fun again. It added better, more visually stunning bosses. It upped the ante on the story. It pretty much is the antithesis of Diablo III in the way it approached a lot of the major design choices. It's not perfect, but Blizzard has once more proven to be committed to their products, constantly fixing and addressing issues.
Summary: Most folk who play D3 know about the expansion pack and the additional character class, additional fifth act and other goodies. I was lucky enough to purchase this when Walmart had this item on sale for roughly $10.00 less than the current price, which is the same as offered by Blizzard Entertainment, the manufacturer/developer of the Diablo game.
Summary: I got a fantastic price on this software and I picked it up in store right away. I am pleased with Blizzard expansions in general but there is SO MUCH content with this one. Thanks Walmart for saving me money and time!!
Summary: And of course, I hate that there are such strict limitations on number of characters and stash size. The game cost quite a bit. The expansion cost alot too. The RMAH covered Blizzard's shareholders, money-grabbers, and other costs plenty. I think it's sad that they tell us "sorry we can't store an extra 5 toons each and we can't even give them to you for $3 each or anything." Who are they fooling?
Pros: The expansion / v2 patch for Diablo 3 really fixed a number of bugs. The auction house was nice -- I think the real issue was how much junk was circulating in the auction house. But Blizzard takes the easiest route, not the best one, and instead of trying to clean up the game's economy (real money or just gold), they nix the whole thing. For better or worse, that's that. The adventure mode is great, the quests in act five are about 1/4 as much fine as the other four (...
Cons: The game could really use more diversity -- more unique dungeons, more side-quests, if you think about other games, there is often much more to do (regardless of whether they are sandbox like Skyrim or non-sandbox like Diablo 3). Most of Diablo 3 revolves around the grind for gear, infernal machines, uber-bosses, etc. I get that and I like it, but for casual or low-level gamers or people looking for a different experience, the development didn't even spring for real c...
Summary: Now that they fixed the system a bit this game is a lot more fun than it used to be. The expansion is a bit short, but the crusader class is awesome and playing the whole game through as her was great. Drops are now tailored for your character, although you still get an occasional item that you can't use. The largest downside is everything seems to be account bound now, so no trading crafting items or legendary items across players.
