Diablo III Ultimate Evil Edition Review

Diablo III Ultimate Evil Edition has been highly anticipated by last and current-gen console players. Those who played the previous release of Diablo III knew exactly what they were in for, while gamers who sampled its demo anxiously awaited the Ultimate Evil Edition. That said, the time has finally come for players to embark on a grand adventure to rid the world of Sanctuary from evil.

A wide variety of character classes


The first thing players will do when they begin their Diablo III adventure is pick a character class. The inclusion of the Reapers of Souls expansion brings the total number of classes to six, as you’ll choose between the Barbarian, Crusader, Demon Hunter, Monk, Witch Doctor or Wizard. Each class has its own strengths and weaknesses, as well as a specific stat that will help make them stronger. Strength, dexterity or intelligence are the three main stats players will need to focus on improving, so choosing a class that takes advantage of loot to boost their characters’ main stat focus is key to success.

Each character has his or her own backstory and opinions on the main storyline in Diablo III. The game takes place 20 years after the events of Diablo II and finds Deckard Cain and Leah investigating ancient texts inside of Tristram Cathedral. In the middle of their search, a falling star crashes into the cathedral, creating a deep crater. The explosion causes Cain to fall into the crater, disappearing from Leah’s sight. It’s up to you to find out not only what happened to Cain, but also what crashed onto Sanctuary.

As varied as the character classes are in their abilities and play styles, there isn’t much players can do to their aesthetics, aside from equipping them with new loot. You won’t be able to customise your character’s face, body type or anything else, although most players will have completely different equipment based on their character classes.

A vast world you’ll spend too many hours exploring


Diablo III Ultimate Evil Edition includes the original Diablo III story and experience, as well as the Reaper of Souls expansion. This means players will spend a lot of time with the game in order to experience everything it has to offer. If you have yet to play Diablo III, you’ll first work your way through the game’s main story that features a total of five acts, each of which can take several hours to complete, especially if you’re the type of person who tends to explore as much of an RPG as possible.

Once you complete the original Diablo III storyline, you’ll be able to partake in Adventure mode. Adventure mode allows players to take on a number of quick, randomised side quests. Completing these quests will reward players with experience, gold and even items. Case in point, rift keystones, which players will need a total of five to enter rifts, which are randomised dungeons with randomised monsters. Rifts are supposed to be more difficult than dungeons players will experience throughout their adventures, although the rewards are much greater.

Online play that goes beyond co-op


Similar to the PC version, Diablo III Ultimate Evil Edition players will be able to join up to three others to battle across all of the acts and Adventure mode. When initiating a co-op game, you’ll be able to join other players who are either playing through your current act, current mission or just randomly find a match to play. Players can also enjoy the game and have their friends pop in and out whenever they please. If you want to completely seclude yourself from online play, that’s possible as well. Local co-op is even available, with all four players fighting together from the comfort of a couch.

Diablo III Ultimate Evil Edition Review

Blizzard didn’t stop with co-op, as it gave the PlayStation 4 version of Diablo III a little more love by introducing some exclusive experiences, one of which is the ability to gift legendary loot to friends. Unfortunately, you can’t specify who gets this loot, as the game randomly chooses your friends for these loot drops. On the other hand, if you find something cool, you can always use the in-game mailbox to send loot and gold.

One of the more interesting features in the PS4 version is the introduction of the Nemesis system. If you come across a monster that kills you, that monster will then stalk your friends as it becomes stronger with each hero it defeats. The monster will continue to bounce through game after game until someone defeats it, which will not only reward the hero, but also those who previously died.

The pinnacle of dungeon crawlers has arrived


Diablo III Ultimate Evil Edition really is the ultimate version of Diablo III, as it has all of the most recent patches and improvements from the PC version; Blizzard plans to keep the console version as updated as its PC counterpart. With that said, you can expect a very polished and highly-detailed experience when you pick up this title. It’s another fine example of Blizzard’s commitment to delivering the absolute best games around.
