[Review Revisited] Diablo III: Reaper of Souls – Ultimate Evil Edition
With a new character class arriving for Diablo III this week, I thought it would be a great time to revisit the game! Check out our thoughts for the game on PS4 in our Diablo III review!
I played a ton of Diablo back in the day, but when Diablo II arrived, I was more into console gaming and skipped it entirely. When I found out Diablo III was coming to PS4, I knew I would finally be getting that loot grinding feeling back into my life… and it was glorious! The game had all of the fun gameplay of the original with a decent story mode and quite a lot to do.
There were quite a few character classes available to play as, with each one feeling different and unique, adding some really good replay value to the game. In fact, it rewards you for playing multiple classes as you can move the weapons and armor between your characters. You can also mail items to friends you know could actually use them!
The game has tons of loot for your characters to collect, and if you find the game getting easier, you can crank up the difficulty considerably and be rewarded with larger experience bonuses for your trouble! Co-op was super fun, whether you were playing online or with a friend on the couch (I loved the local co-op a feature, something sorely lacking in games these days).
Blizzard has done a great job patching the game and updating it over the years, and this week they added one of the most requested characters classes from Diablo II: the Necromancer.! There is a $14.99 US cost to it though, but it’s apparently a very awesome class to take out for a spin.
If you haven’t had a chance to play Diablo III yet, it’s actually on sale for the new character in Sony’s Mid-Year Sale, so get to it! The game packs hundreds of hours of enjoyment at a very good price.
