    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.

    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.

    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 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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    This type of game is not my usual (usual game is an FPS military shooter) but with recommendations from friends I went for it. It is a lot of fun. Especially with ability to play the campaign with 3 other friends. Action is fast and the weapons and armor you can constantly upgrade is a lot of fun. there are a lot of menus to get used to and keeping up with your inventory and new skills you unlock takes a little getting used to but playing it is just fun and a really good change of pace. I didn't play this on the PS3 but love the visuals so far on the PS4. the cut scenes are gorgeous and this game is not a quick 6 hour and done type of game either. Story is very good so far also. Love the 4 player co-op.

    Everyone has their preferences in games. I remember playing Diablo way back when and loving it. This game is no different when I comes to the love. The graphics and gameplay are excellent. The sound is superb, especially with a good headset. But what really makes a game is the fun factor and this game delivers. Some few might get bored and the action, but the story and the pickups keep the game moving and interesting. I couldn't imagine playing this game on PC with a keyboard and/or mouse. The setup on a controller is the best thing done to the series, in my opinion. I see myself pouring hours into this game. Definitely worth the money! Great job, Blizzard!!

    I could never get into the PC version of this game, as it felt boring to me, just clicking 800 times per minute to progress. Being given direct control of the character made it much more engaging (they even added a dodge roll!). The combat is easy to pick up and gets pretty intricate as you progress. Playing local multiplayer is great (reminds me of old Gauntlet days). The Nemesis system is a great addition for consoles, as is the Apprentice system for bringing in players of all levels to be able to play together. Getting the expansion included sweetens the deal. Hopefully we'll see some of the same content patches as PC users are enjoying as well!

    Why do I make a referrence to Talladega Nights? Reason being is that they were teammates, and that is what makes this title so great is playing with a friend. Fantastic hack and slash formula that reflects back on prior titles for those new to the series, but this title also adds the sheen you would expect in a next-gen title with great controls for consoles players who don't want to deal with a mouse and keyboard. For men thinking of titles to play with their significant others without punishing them, this is a great title as my wife and I have been playing and enjoying this title thoroughly. Strap in for a great ride!

    I have grown up playing diablo since the first game and through all the expansions. If you have loved them like I have then this is a must buy. Graphics are great. I was a little worried about using a controller instead of a mouse and keyboard but they have done really well in porting the controls over. Still not as precise but still responsive. The best thing about this game is that there is always something new. With 6 characters that play vastly different from each other to the new paragon level system. It is a great game that I plan on playing for years, especially if it takes blizzard as long to put out 4 as it did 3.

    For a game that started life in pretty rough shape, Blizzard has redeem themselves with a steady stream of patches, updates, and new content. Taking this game from something of a downer, to something special that is also incredibly addicting. Diablo has always specialized on the game play loop of "just one more", just one more dungeon (they change layouts each time you play), just one more item drop, just one more upgrade, just one more level up... and so on. Half an hour becomes an entire night. The game controls map incredibly well to the PS4 controller, and it plays very smoothly. Definitely worth a buy.

    Being primarily a console gamer, I've always heard about but never experienced a Diablo game until this one. Diablo 3 plays similar to Gauntlet but with beautiful modern graphics, fluid controls, a bunch of special abilities for each character class to pick and choose from, endless loot, weapons, and gear to find, and a bland story with boring characters (but really, who's playing this for the story?). Diablo 3 is a fun, simple game to pick up and play, while taking real skill to master and stay alive in the later, higher difficulty levels. It's thoroughly addictive, and won't becoming boring anytime soon.

    This was my first time playing a Diablo game and as soon as I started I could not put it down. The story is meh but the game play is awesome and I was surprised at how fun it actually is with a controller instead of a mouse and keyboard since most purists prefer it over a controller. I have been wanting to try this game since it released on the ps3 but I held back thinking of a future ps4 release and good thing I did. This game looks very good on the ps4 and the best part is that it includes the expansion(an added bonus to the gorgeous graphics). This is a must own title if you like action rpg games.
