Can you say addictive?
Addictive is the perfect word to describe Diablo III: Reaper of Souls – Ultimate Evil Edition which released today on Xbox One, Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and PlayStation 4. It’s so easy to get caught up in all the action and excitement of the gameplay which continuously offers powerful loot to collect and equip, letting players unleash mighty attacks on numerous foes. And it’s not just about the gameplay as the story is also interesting enough to keep players pushing forward to see what happens next.
Diablo III: Reaper of Souls – Ultimate Evil Edition features the complete Diablo III experience with Acts I-V, allowing Xbox One and PlayStation 4 players to experience the whole game in its entirety. It also features seamless multiplayer that lets up to four-player co-op through either online or local play, and gamers can take advantage of player gifts and mail that allow them to share loot with their friends.
Like any loot grabbing, hack ‘n slashing, dungeon crawling RPG, the gameplay can feel slightly repetitive at times, however with tons of goodies to find from killing bosses and hidden chests, it’s always exciting to see what kind of damage these new and unique weapons can inflict. Plus there are many electrifying skills to learn that enable players to do special moves like jumping up and striking down on a group of enemies, causing an explosion in the vicinity around the player, and much more, and that’s only in my specific character class (crusader) that I chose this time around. There are multiple classes each with their own unique abilities for battling against evil.
Diablo III: Reaper of Souls – Ultimate Evil Edition also features multiple difficulty levels, and players can earn additional experience points depending on how high they set the difficulty level. Add that with the five different character classes to play as and legendary class loot to discover really helps drive the replay value through the roof. Also, the joy of finding a new legendary item never fades away as players will immediately want to equip it to discover what unique benefits it offers to their character.
To simply put it, for those who have yet to play Diablo III, the Ultimate Evil Edition really is the ultimate edition to own on consoles because it contains a complete experience that is just too hard to step away from. It’s downright fun, continuously engaging, provides great multiplayer experiences, and can keep players going all the way to the end. I’m excited to jump back into the game to see what continues to unfold in the story and equip even more epic loot that increases my power and feeds my pleasure for unleashing massive attacks on all that is evil in this land.
I spent a majority of my weekend live streaming the ultimate (and evil) version of the game and expect to live stream even more of my gameplay this week on Twitch, so make sure to keep an eye out on my Twitch and Twitter pages. Twitch: CaffeinatedGamr – Twitter: @CaffeinatedGamr
