Diablo III Ultimate Evil Edition
$40 with no option as DLC?
For those who haven't had a chance to play Diablo 3 on consoles yet, I highly recommend picking this up. The co-op is great, especially when you're playing with 4 of your friends on one TV (aside from the times when everyone has to pause to equip new gear or check out loot). Especially with this version, since it has the Reaper of Souls expansion, which I've heard good things about from my diehard Diablo PC gamer friends. But what happens to us console gamers who already own a copy of Diablo 3? Will RoS not even be released as DLC that we can buy separately on Xbox Live/PSN? If we have to buy the Ultimate Evil Edition just to get access to Reaper of Souls, then it would only be fair to have $10 off the purchase if we trade in our original copy of Diablo 3. Blizzard should emulate what Capcom did when Dragon's Dogma: Dark Arisen was released by giving customers money off their purchase when they traded in their copies of Dragon's Dogma for the Dark Arisen edition. For everyone else who've been too asleep to pass this great game, they can pay the full $40, they won't regret it.
I am glad that the console version is getting this expansion, but I still have a question regarding it. Being somebody who already owns Diablo 3, I want to know if it comes with another copy of the game, or if it is an install disc. If it isn't the latter, will there be an alternative method for people who already own Diablo 3, or do I need to buy it how it is? P.S. To anybody who hasn't tried it yet, the console version of Diablo 3 is awesome.
What's the deal?
I've been playing Diablo 3 on PC for around half a year. I picked this up today for the Xbox 360 thinking I would enjoy it just as much as I did on the PC. Boy was I wrong. UI is terrible, Graphics make me feel like I'm playing Balders Gate on the N64 (I have an HDTV from 2011 so that's not the issue), and the controls feel too light. Where is the zoom in options? Why can't I customize my controller? Apparently they thought it was alright to add a "vault/barrel roll" as well as a target lock on, but not allow us to zoom in on our characters? Is this the price console gamers have to pay to play one of the best RPG's out there? It's a shame. Worst part is, I can't return it because I broke the seal on the case? Gee whiz... thanks a lot... The only positive thing about this is the offline as well as local co-op options, (Gee Blizzard where's that on PC edition) Protip: If you're interested in a game, don't go out and buy it, don't go read a review, go Redbox it and save yourself the heartache, play it and worst comes to worst, return it the next day and save yourself (and your wallet) some heartache
I've played the 2nd, and Diablo 3 hasn't disappointed with this 360 port. I have played the demo a bit before purchasing the game because of some mixed reviews, BUT it really is a great game. In typical Blizzard fashion, great story, action and replay awaits you. Plus you can play online with your friends or random strangers. Enjoy!
Finally! A local multiplayer RPG
My boyfriend and I both love to game, but have a hard time finding local mutiplayers that aren't shooters. This one finally delivers on that as well as having good graphics, a balanced story/game ratio, character customization, and lasting appeal. I feel like I can play this as a single player or with friends, and I love that you can also play online campaigns.
Perfect for solo or multiplayer RPG.
I have D3:ROS for my pc and I like it, play it from time to time. but my problem is not with the game itself. It's that they are essentially send us a dead game after launch. They will not be patching the game after launch when they update it to 2.06. 2.1 is almost about to come out and has some neat features that if you purchase on the 360 or PS3 you won't get to take part of it. My guess is they made it $20 less to justify not updating the game as time goes on. With that being said I would recommend either waiting until you get a next gen console, or get it for pc.
Unless there's a separate achievement list I'll just buy the X1 version... This is from us.battle.net for those of you asking if there's another way to purchase the DLC - Q: If I already own Diablo III console, will there be any way to upgrade to Reaper of Souls expansion on consoles other than Ultimate Evil Edition?
A: Ultimate Evil Edition is the only way to gain access to complete Reaper of Souls expansion with all its new features and updates on consoles.
Worth the money - if you have friends who play.
SHORT VERSION SUMMARY: Whilst better than the original Diablo 3 (console edition), if you have no plans of playing with others online, or if you lack friends with copy of the game - then don't buy it! The game is almost entirely about co-op (either same screen or online, both work great).
PLOT: ... interesting/acceptable and the cut scenes are well done. The side missions are just random quests that give good gold and exp. However, do not expect too many of the main scenes, they occur seldomly and about twice most an Act.
GAMEPLAY: Make sure you have a buddy or two to play with. If you're just playing casually for the story and possibly some moderate loot, don't hold your breath. The game itself is short (under 10 hours) especially on the lower difficulties. The game really shines in its Co-op; expect countless hours of gameplay. After beating the main plot you unlock two forms of Adventuring, both of which are incredibly addicting and you will (I promise you!) lose track of time as you pursue the never-ending search for the perfect legendaries or green sets.
GRAPHICS: Nothing impressive, just moderate. Cut scenes have great detail, but the actual game is so-so in graphics. Doesn't really matter though since this game wasn't made for the purpose of beauty.
LASTING APPEAL: Yep, it has plenty! This is one of those games that you will find difficult to put down once you have started hoarding items and aiming for the best gear imaginable. However, all good things DO come to an end and diablo is no exception. Once you have invested about a month of gameplay, you will most likely have gotten all the items you need to even handle the highest Torment difficulties. At this point, all you can do is wait for the next big patch/update from Blizzard to raise the challenge!
TO BUY OR NOT: ....I can't stress it enough how important it is for you to decide BEFORE buying if you plan to play this game solo or with friends. If you go in solo, expect boredom to hit quickly. BUT, if you do intend to play often (if not all the time) with teammates, then please, do yourself a favor and purchase this game. It's well worth it.
DISCLAIMER: This game is VERY different from Diablo 2! Also, if you are planning on Reaper of Souls (RoS) to come out as a DLC, the chances are slim to none. Just buy the new game!
Great and addicting RPG!!!
this is literaly the only RPG i play great, nice story line and lots of fun!!! : ) # very addicting i can play all day wait i do!
The game is fun
I bought D3: UEE, but on the case it says it comes with an original copy of D3, however there is only 1 disc in the case, and its the RoS version of it, how do I access the original so I can play with my friends who don't have the DLC?
