Diablo 3: Ultimate Evil Edition Review | Metal Arcade

Metal Arcade: Jason Bakker writes:

Diablo 3 has undergone a lot of changes since it was first released in 2012. Dozens of patches balanced the game, removed the Auction House, and added new features before the first full expansion, Reaper of Souls, was brought to market earlier this year. Now consoles are getting Diablo 3: Ultimate Evil Edition, which includes all of the content from Diablo 3 as well as updates and features from Reaper of Souls – such as Adventure Mode, the all-new Crusader class, Act V, a level 70 cap, and more.

Loving this on X1.The colour pallet is just stunning.4-player co-op is absolute madness with different coloured missiles of magic filling the screen constantly.Never had a frame drop yet.It really is polished and deserves the scores it's been receiving.

Agree, this and Destiny = goodbye real world

Not mention, there are Danganronpa 2 and Tales of Xillia 2 too... damn my wallet

Yeah, the PS4 and X1 versions are nice and shiny. They did a good job on it

I really want to play this. Shame I'm out of work and cant afford to buy anything at the moment!

Just watch YouTube of it with a controller in hand. It should get you past the dry spell ;)

I'm puzzled with this game. I want it & it's getting amazing reviews but everyone I know that is a real gamer & doesn't get paid to review games tells me. You sit on your couch & for hour upon hour repetitively hit the exact same buttons on the pad non stop while collecting random items. They say the easiest way to describe it & the best comparison is sitting for hours on end at a Vegas 1 spin/$1 gambling machine. There's no skill or intelligence to it, it's just mindless luck.

Now to me that doesn't sound fun at all & I don't see how u can justify £60 for that experience. Am I missing something?

The thing is I still want the game. I think I may just wait for it to get cheap first.

You give a good analogy of the game but..... it just works for some reason. I don't know why it's so fun it could be that the conrtrols are tight or it could be the loot system or it could be both.

All I know for sure is it's fun. And the multi player is fantastic (either couch co op or online).

Did you enjoy Gauntlet? Did you enjoy Champions of Norath? If so you'll enjoy Diablo.

I've been playing video games for about 27 years so i know what you mean about getting burned out. Especially when most of the quality games these days seem to be made up of FPS and mediocre 3rd person action games.

But if you played the older Diablo games then you know what to expect. Sure levels, enemies, and loot are all randomized, but this might be the first time i've heard someone say that is a bad thing.

The randomization keeps the game fresh. You never know what you're going to come across. If everything were just linear and you got the same equipment and items in the same place every time, it would get boring pretty quickly.

It also helps with multiplayer as you can swap items with people, as they won't have the same gear as you.

It sounds like your "real gamer friends" have never played a Diablo game past their first play through.

Once you get up in the higher difficulties, it becomes extremely strategy oriented. You really have to know how to build an effective character if you are going to survive for long.

It isn't just a matter of mashing the same buttons over and over again. If your character isn't effective then you won't last long.

I think maybe it's just an age thing as when I say "real gamers" I mean we have been playing games for 20-30 years. We all had & played the original games on the old school pentium's & loved them but maybe its just we're getting bored of gaming, but then again I kind of want that nostalgia back as well.
