Things fixed in original Diablo 3 game through patches (you paid for these when you bought the ORIGINAL game, not the expansion):
-No more auction house!
-Items drop for your character (stats you need)
-Improved legendary drop
-Legendary drops have fun attributes
-Increased customization ability (no more being stuck to one build for your class)
-Reduced reliance on magic find to get legendary drops
These changes were all great and the gameplay is vastly improved with them.
However, that is all with the original game.
For the expansion, you get:
-1 new playable class (crusader)
-1 new act for the campaign (act 5) including 3 new boss fights that is roughly 2-3 hours depending on difficulty and how thorough you are
-New skills for your character (some of which are very fun)
So when you separate the changes for the old game versus the new stuff from the expansion, it looks a little different. In terms of amount of content, the expansion seems more like a small DLC package than an actual expansion.
It's good but it is "few and far between." You get fed a tiny piece of story now and then, but most of the time you spend grinding on the gigantic maps trying to get to the next area. What little story there was, it was interesting. But there was not nearly enough to denote a 40 dollar price tag.Read more ›
1. I love the game, and I think the expansion is great, although it's far harder to keep up with, and I did have to give up "Torment" level (one). I like the way the characters are developing, and I like the sense of community in the game, with people to talk to and a greater feeling of connectedness overall. I'm really quite happy with the expansion, EXCEPT:
2. Okay, you've heard it before: THIS for $40??? One act only? I was astounded when the game ended abruptly, although many allusions were made to future expansions. But will each of these be only one act and cost $40? That's pretty outrageous.
As to the "adventuring" concept, the point needs to be made that not everyone wants to just kill demons without any story line whatsoever. Seems like a cop-out to me.
This is one of the greatest adventure/RPG games of all time. I hope Blizzard doesn't blow it.
And that's about it.
I grew up playing Diablo II and enjoyed it. In fact, I loved playing all Blizzard games. I think each one is just as great as the one before it, but I am, honestly, a casual fan. I do not practice theorycraft (mathematical analysis of game mechanics to discover the best strategies) that only the most hardcore players partake in and I believe those are the same type of people that review the latest Blizzard games and criticize them to the Burning Hells and back. Which is not bad, of course. I would be the same way if I was just as die-hard as they were, but sadly, I am not. To me, the appeal of Blizzard games is that they have addictive gameplay that is simple-yet-complex and anyone that has even the slightest interest in gaming can easily play and enjoy themselves greatly. That is a winning formula in my eyes. With the latest release by Blizzard, Diablo III: Reaper of Souls, I believe the formula is refined to near-perfection and it easily makes it the best Diablo yet.
"You must be crazy for thinking Diablo III is the best one yet," says my devoted Diablo friend, "Diablo II is effortlessly the best one". And you are right in thinking that, my friend. Diablo II is a highly-regarded game and it was a blast to play, but I believe Diablo III takes the groundwork from its predecessor and expands on it in a fun and satisfying way, while the expansion, Reaper of Souls, crafts it to near-perfection. I'm sure by now most of you devoted Diablo gamers have already read this review and gasped at my claims that Diablo III is the best one yet, but I am aiming this review to you and the likes of my kind, the casual fans of Blizzard's highly popular games. So read on my friends, both casual and hardcore.Read more ›
