    Very Fun, with an Old School Gaming Vibe

    I got Diablo 3 when it released for Mac a couple years ago. In less than 24 hours I have far surpassed all the progress I had made playing on my computer in that time. OK, so we're not part of the 'PC Master Race.' Some of us enjoy lounging on the couch with controller in hands. I get it, some people are adamant that this stays on PC/Mac, but let me tell you that it's orders of magnitude more fun for me to play on console. The graphics are gorgeous and runs silky smooth. I do wish we could zoom in a little bit, but I remember hearing in a Dev video that they zoomed out actually because us console players are used to using more of the screen? Or something along those lines. The gameplay is a little button-mashy, but it's actually rather deep. After about 4 hours your class choice will really start to shine and you'll be unlocking some powers that make you smile. The loot system is EPIC. I must say that some of the symbols are still confusing to me. And I'm not sure what different stats (like vitality) mean to my character. I can spend some time really looking at that, but it would have been nice to have an in-game tutorial. I can't believe I just wished for a tutorial, but I think that says something about the depth of the game. On the surface it's easy to pick up a controller and figure out - OK, X is my basic attack, and R2 is a cool one, and Square is going to be AOE, etc... but you can really spend time mapping the powers to your controller and then figuring out the proper loot to equip. I was on the fence about this, but I figured I have close to two months until The Evil Within comes out so this could fill my time. I don't regret it. So if you don't like using a keyboard and mouse and staring at a screen 2 feet away to play games, then you're in good company. It's a great game to chill too. There's really no thought to the gameplay and there's always action going on. I came off a The Last Of Us kick where I was doing Grounded mode, so I was used to dying over and over again from the same three enemies. This is so different and fast paced it actually makes me smile at times when I see the monster massacre counter increasing. All in all it's a fun game if you like this type of style. If you don't like this style of RPG, then keep holding out until Dragon Age.

    Best Diablo yet...

    I actually skipped playing Diablo III (Any Version) until now because even though I have enjoyed Blizzard games since the original Diablo/Warcraft PC intros I had a hard time believing that they could do better then they did with the second game in the series. That version of Diablo not only improved on the first of the series but it even had its own DVD for in game cinematic(s) it was so good. Anyways... I have this paper weight of a console called a PS4 and ultimately haven't seen a game come out to impress me yet other than the remix of Last of... well you know... and I vaguely noticed that Diablo III in all it glory (meaning RNG and bugs are for the most part fixed) was released for my Bluray... err... I mean console and I thought I'd give it a go. I am glad I did. This is a great game. Even though the mechanics behind the Smith are not properly explained or the in game Vendors are not so interesting in their own right. The story telling is well written and the lore which continues the series is good enough to keep me interested. It would be nice if Blizzard released previous game lore/cinematics to bring the Player up to date entirely (If you cared about the story it would be a nice option) or maybe brought in a behind the scenes/making of this game... overall the game is fun and seamless with no load/save time to be announced. I would definitely suggest this game even more if you had one to three more friends which you enjoy gaming with and give it a go together. It's not necessary and I haven't played with anyone else myself but most games which allow real players to participate coop have a chance to go from good to great and I expect that this game would be one of them. About the legendary lewts in WOW thingy I posted in whats not so great about this game... I was kidding. I am happy to see Orange anything pop up on the ground when I kill a Boss or any creature not NORMAL. I am also glad that Blizz requires people to be vigilant in their personal attempt to get a legendary item from their world class MMO. It shows a bit of in game dedication to your role/class. Now do me a favor and un-break it... the MMO that is this game is fine... :)

    Diablo III in one word - Fantastic

    This is the best version of the Diablo series. Let me begin by saying if you played Diablo 3 on Xbox 360, you wont see that much of a graphical upgrade, albeit there is one. The true gem of the PS4 edition is it is practically locked in at 60 FPS, making this game truly solid even through its massive hordes of enemies and great visuals. The difficulty system has been revamped and now offers new challenges and rewards to those who can handle it. My favorite part of this edition is gone are the days of four playthroughs to max out your level. If you challenge yourself with the difficulty meter, you can get through level 1-70 in one playthrough through the 5 acts. Act V is great and feels like a story in its own that somehow fits perfectly with the original four acts. The Crusader is a hybrid of the Barbarian and the Monk that uses a shield and acts as the tank character coop Diablo 3 characters may have desired. Diablo 3 is one of the most expansive and best valued, well written games with the most astonishing cutscenes of all time. The writing and gameplay of World of Warcraft meets the ease and comfort of consoles, and it is an absolute must for RPG fans. Oh, and did i mention four player online AND local Co-Op? Take note corporate game companies, people still want to see this, and Diablo 3 delivers giving Blizzard yet another gold star on their record.

    Great gameplay, almost no story

    Diablo III comes SO CLOSE to easily being the greatest console dungeon crawler of all time. It's absolutely beautiful, and it may just be the best drop-in/drop-out multiplayer-RPG experience to date. The constant loot drops satisfy, and the leveling up occurs at just the right cadence to get you staying up late thinking "just one more level." But as polished as this game is from a gameplay perspective, Blizzard completely phoned in the story and its presentation. Compared to a comparable game, like Baldur's Gate: Dark Alliance on Xbox/PS2, there's absolutely nothing "next-gen" about your interactions with NPCs. Whereas BGDA zoomed in on NPCs and fully animated them, down to lipsynching that was way ahead of its time in the early 2000s, Diablo III never zooms in, doesn't appear to attempt to lipsynch (you're too far away to tell anyway), and only does basic gestures to go along with what is being said. And the actual voice acting? Minor spoiler alert: When a fairly major character dies, what should have been a "No!" reaction is quite the opposite. That's all a nitpick, but when the rest of the game is SO GOOD, the faults really stick out. You wonder why they couldn't have put just a little more into it to at least equal a similar console game that's more than 10 years old now. Still... Play it. Play it with friends. It's great fun.

    I'm a big PC gamer, and I usually feel that most games are better on PC; usually do to better graphical fidelity, options for re-mapping controls, and mod support. But this version of Diablo III is the absolute best version. It's been so long since there's been a game I've had this much fun playing with on the couch with friends. I had Diablo III on PS3 and the controls were absolutely awesome and they figured out a clever way to map the controls and re-do the menu/inventory systems. The local multiplayer was awesome and the online multiplayer worked seamlessly in tandem with local. The loot system on the PS3 system was so much better than the PC version. There were actual improvements to the PC version on the PS3 version..i was shocked. You may be wondering why I'm referring to the PS3 version so much, but it's only to say that all that greatness transferred over to Diablo III: Reaper of Souls on PS4. It also has the added bonus of greatly improving the graphical fidelity of the game compared to the PS3 version which was sorely lacking in that department when held up against the PC's graphics. Now I would rather play Reaper of Souls on PS4 than PC because of all those awesome features. The loot system has been improved even further and the gameplay is just as addicting as ever. This is a definite buy.

    Good, but even better with friends

    This was my first Diablo game, though I knew the mechanics from watching people play the PC versions over the years. Believe it or not, two games made me buy this: Destiny and Borderlands. The original Borderlands made it known that they were a Diablo game molded in a shooter game and after playing Diablo III, I totally get it and it makes me appreciate the franchise more. As for Destiny, I got bored with the game's loot system and wanted a game to give me something more rewarding. Diablo definitely does this better than Destiny in a lot of ways. Example: The variety of rifts and bounties to keep you seeking out better items. It's much better than wasting several hours doing a hard raid in Destiny and having nothing to show for it in the end other than shards. I do think the game could do better with its story (it is very predicable) and maybe it could use more enjoyable Acts, because the game's length is pretty weak. The game is about its loot though and it does a great job with it. Good, average fun time and even better with friends.

    Probably the best Dungeon Crawler for PS4

    I have D3 for PC and I was curious how this game would feel on next gen console PS4. I was surprised at how Blizzard was able to pull of a unique control set designed especially for console players. You can navigate the many character menus quickly efficiently. Controls 5/5 The graphics are great at 1080p on my 42 inch flat screen TV. 4.5/5 The sound is excellent and the music score to the game is great 5/5 The multiplayer features allow you to jump right in the game with others that are in the same part of the game. It seems like most players are taking advantage of the microphone so that you can chat easily while playing together. 4.5/5 Overall a great game if you are into the Diablo style of gameplay. If you have never tried a game like Diablo and you own a PS4 I would highly recommend giving it a try!

    I purchased this game for ps3 when it first came out & didn't much care for it to be entirely honest. I found the mechanics of the game repetitive & there seemed no real reward for playing. Fast forward to a month ago; I saw this game was on sale & thought, maybe if give it another go. This time around however I bought it for the PS4 & purchased a second copy for a friend of mine who was hurting financially. We started playing the game together & agreed to only pay when each of us was available to do so. The result has been equal leveling of our two characters & we've nearly beaten the game at this point. The mechanics haven't changed & it does still get repetitive. Having someone to play this with however has made all the difference. If you're planning to play this solo I would recommend The Witcher 3 instead as it's a more fulfilling single player experience. If you've got friends to play this with, the time you'll spend in Diablo 3 won't be wasted.

    I got this 2 weeks ago after reading some of the reviews. I finally had a chance to play it last night after the kids went to bed. I picked the barbarian because I have always enjoyed its tank-like smash and bash style of play. Graphics and gameplay are awesome. Started with doing the quests, and hunting for trophies in individual play. Enjoyed it so much I played it half the night. Contemplated not going to work because I am addicted to this game now. Can't wait to try every single class. So many new options to explore and conquer. Leveling up is a blast as your character gets different skills. Skills can be varied and it's fun to try different combinations. Armor, gems, and enchantments are another aspect to making a character more powerful. There are various vendors that can upgrade armor, create larger gems, or enchant armor. I have not even tried the online option yet. So much better than the PC version. Something wicked this way comes indeed.

    Pros: This game at first is amazing.The graphics are awe dropping in the cut scenes through out the game. The story line is simple to catch on and your not stuck wondering what is this game all about like other games out there. You don't have to experience the story line alone. You can play through with your first character playing of course with 3 close gaming friends (helps level up quicker). They also added a crusader to the mixed. Cons: There are very few cons but the biggest complaints i have is that its a repetitious game you beat the story line once you have to play over and over to level up or play bounties which gets boring. Atleast for me the drops of weapons or armor where horrible after i get to a certain level i wouldn't get anything useful for any of the 6 characters after playing for hours. In conclusion its a solid game all the way around great for just to kill time and kill some zombies/demons while your at it.

    I played Diablo III on the PC for a long time before purchasing the PS4 purchase. And I wish I hadn't waited so long. Besides looking excellent (my pc wasn't the highest gaming rig) on the next gen console, it just feels like it plays better. The menu systems have been redesigned to work with a controller and it's perfect. No complaining about that, which is likely the concern many have with this PC game being ported to console. It plays fantastically well with no slowdown and truth be told I'll never go back to playing it on the PC. The console version of D3 feels right and feels like it's always been a console game. My biggest gripe? The "tutorials" are few and slim and not super helpful. If I hadn't played it on PC first I'd be very confused by what I was looking at and what things meant. Sadly, new players to the Diablo universe may be turned off by that. Consult some online guides and you'll be fine though.

    Diablo 3 UEE is a game that keeps on giving. You can play the campaign through all 5-6 classes for slightly different experiences. Once you finish the campaign, all levels and dungeons are opened up to Adventure Mode where you can go anywhere you want (sans story) and fight and loot to your hearts content, solo or with friends. There is also a mode that randomizes dungeons so you can play areas again and again with a different group of monsters every time. The only cons are that the game can feel a bit repetitive and in my opinion is far too easy on the default normal difficulty with certain classes. Good loot is far to easy to acquire and I never had to buy anything from a merchant, so money seemed without value. But you can change the difficulty on the fly during play, so modify to taste. Other than that, you can return over and over to Diablo over time and play it forever.

    The ULTIMATE version of Diablo3!

    Let me start off by saying that I already had Diablo 3 for PC/Mac and played it quite extensively. I never did upgrade that version to Reaper of Souls and never played it after "loot 2.0." But I had heard nothing but great things about the expansion and figured I'd buy it for PS4 rather than PC/Mac, since my rig isn't all that powerful. Simply put, this is THE ULTIMATE version of Diablo 3 Reaper of Souls! The controls are very well thought out for console (something I was initially worried about), the expansion comes with a TON of new content and isn't simply just a new Act and class added on. The graphics are superb, the 5.1 surround sound is aural stimulation, and it's just incredibly fun an addicting always trying to get better and better gear. I can't say enough good things about this game... so stop reading this review and go out and buy it already!

    I've been a huge Diablo fan since Diablo 2. I purchased Diablo 3 twice on PC along with the Reaper of Souls expansion and completed both with multiple characters. I decided to buy this game for PS4 mainly to play online with a friend of mine. Boy is it ADDICTIVE. I honestly didn't think it would come close to the PC but playing in front of my TV at 1080P is a better overall experience. I believe the console control scheme and inventory mechanics are actually superior to that of the PC. That of course is subjective - but it's coming from a guy that bought an Nvidia Shield for the whole purpose of streaming this game from PC to my TV in order to use a keyboard and mouse. PC purists - fear not! The awesome gameplay and new mechanics are worth giving this game another go (or 10). This IS the definitive edition.

    Classic Hack and Slash action

    So this is my first experience with Diablo Pros: Massive amount of content Replaybility in the terms of six or so classes you can play as Great graphics Cons Repetition I put quite a few hours in the game and really enjoyed my time with it. Each enemy you defeat has the potential to drop gear, and I constantly found myself checking to see if I could benefit from changing to the new items I pick up. the storyline is fun and the graphics are quite impressive. The one con I had was the repetition. It may be because I was playing single player, but after a few hours I started to feel like I was just going through the motions. Overall I'd recommend the game, but it's probably best to know what you're getting. If you want a fun action RPG with a neat leveling/equipment system, this is an ideal pick for you

    I'll be honest that I haven't played the PC version od Diablo 3 so I can't comment on all the issues from that version. The PS4 version includes Diablo 3 and the expansion, Reaper of Souls. Its a very polished game, graphics running at 60fps and little to no slow down even on the most intense battles. Gameplay is fast and frantic and you level up to 60 real quickly. The adjustable difficulty is to help receive more loot quickly. The downfall I feel of this game is it is totally geared at those wanting just a little better gear and all about end game. The story is good, just presented a little weak and the boss battles are lame until you are on the most extreme difficulty. For any fan of the series, its a great buy, especially since it was optimized so well for the PS4.

    I knew nothing about this game, at all, before purchasing... that being said I'm loving it. I typically grew up playing Nintendo classics and fighting games so I'm always looking to try new games and I remember my best friend preordering this and being obsessed. She totally was right, this game is so much fun! The gothic style is very appealing and characters look cool in their armor and weaponry. I plan on playing through the story line with each class. It has a local multiplayer mode which is great for when you have company over. Highly recommend this game even if you haven't ever really played any video games, you can play in the easiest mode and kill some walking dead.

    I don't know what to say about this game that hasn't already been said at this point. The strength of this game, which is major one, is that this game has one of the best co-ops out their for the PS4. The replay value is very, very high when playing co-op. The game isn't too difficult to where it can become frustrating for people that are infrequent gamers, all while never being too easy to where it can become boring for serious gamers. The individual gamer really can play to their skill set at a comfortable level. I was a little worried how gameplay that plays so well on the computer would translate to PS4, but the controls and gameplay are smooth and really comfortable on the PS4. Overall, an enjoyable game.

    Best PC Port Ever

    Most pc games lose a lot of their gameplay quality when converted to console. Diablo 3 Reapers of Souls would not be one of them. This game does not lose anything significant on console. If anything there are many graphical and gameplay improvements from the PC version that make a new play through totally worthwhile. I had not played the expansion Reaper of Souls yet so the value of making this new purchase was definitely beneficial. The expansion is an awesome stand alone story and being able to play together with 3 more friends around a big screen tv versus a small computer screen is a big plus. Highly recommended for RPG action fans and those of you looking for a multiplayer game that is both challenging and rewarding.

    I had played this title previously in the PS3 by myself and it wasn't a whole lot of fun. The game lacked something I couldn't put my finger on. Having now played it on the PS4 with friends I can safely say that the co-op was what I was missing. This game, while alright solo, really shines when played with a friend. The combat can become stale after a bit but with a friend, that doesn't seem to be nearly as big a factor this time around. If you have someone to play this title with I highly recommend you pick it up as you'll both probably really enjoy the experience. If you're thinking of getting it to play solo it can be rewarding & there's a decent community of players out there to quest with as well.
