4.0 out of 5 stars Great fun, 9 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Diablo III - Reaper of Souls (Mac/PC DVD) (CD-ROM)
I've been playing for a few weeks now and thought I post an opinion - for what it's worth.

Reaper expands nicely upon Diablo 3, not all the changes are popular among the user base, the inability to freely trade the best items is a particular bugbear, but on the whole it seems this is a step in the right direction. I particularly like the increased build diversity encouraged by the gear changes.

By far and away the best thing about the recent changes is loot 2.0 - which is part of the core game too. Before this came in loot was highly random, your warrior may find a crossbow (which he couldn't use) with bonus intelligence on it (which would make the crossbow useless to a player that could wield it). Now loot is far more relevant, not to suggest every single drop is relevant but the difference is like night and day. The mystic, which is NOT part of the core game, you will need the expansion, is also great at filling the gap between getting ok and great gear on your hero's.

Once you've got 2 or 3 bits of legendary gear and great rare pieces on your hero the game does turn into a grind to find those upgrades - but that's kind of the name of the game with ARPG's....

I personally feel that the expansion is overpriced, but I only spent £20 on the original game so I may be biased. I've played a lot of hours since putting the upgrade on, I'm just not convinced that some of the modes/content is actually worth the price tag.

If you are considering stepping into the Diablo 3 world for the first time - some advice, try the starter edition. It's free and will not only give you some idea about the game is like but will also give you an idea if the technology is going to work for you. I personally don't have the lag and disconnect issues that some people have but I can't ignore that they are not an issue for some - doesn't matter if these are user/isp/blizzard issues you still need to know if they are there for you. Goto the Blizzard website and download it.
