Much Improved over the Original 04/21/2014
This review is from: Diablo III: Reaper of Souls PC Game
-Loot 2.0 is much better than the original game, which was frustrating in that it was difficult to get rare loot and loot that made sense- a crossbow with witch doctor abilites?- , meaning you had to troll the auction house. Now that the auction house has been removed and legendaries/set items drop more often, it's not as frustrating. Item affixes also make sense now (i.e. crossbow with dexterity and critical hit damage) and some pretty snazzy gear is now available for grabs
-Underutilized assets from the original game has been beefed up, with the mystic now allowing you to re-roll item affixes and the blacksmith having an expanded repertoire of legendary and set items you can craft
-Game balance overall has been fixed.
-Still my favorite game to just hop online to just casually hop online and join friend's open quests
-Adventure mode is the #1 big story, as randomized quests means you're never playing repetitively through story mode anymore
-This is a very pricey expansion, particularly as the original game also received the loot 2.0 system (albeit no adventure mode and no act 5)
-Act 5 wasn't exactly rife with story and didn't offer much variety from the other 4 acts. You do get to explore the backstory of your followers and other surviving characters from the previous acts
Overall, a massive improvement from the original Diablo 3 video game- in fact, you could say this is what the game should have been from day 1. I find myself logging online battle.net again to jump into friends games (made easier with their new launch app). Adventure Mode is just a great move, as well as the removal of the auction house.
It's just too bad that Blizzard is asking you to pay $40 for the 'privilege' of them fixing every single one of their mistakes. Newegg's promotional offer on launch did soften the pain quite a bit, as it allowed me to stretch my money to buy some computer upgrades =)
