Diablo III: Ultimate Evil Edition
What is it? A fantasy hack ‘n’ slash action RPG where the hero/heroes arriving at a small town must journey to discover and defeat the Lord of Terror by killing everything evil, finding powerful equipment and levelling up their abilities
Diablo’s dark fantasy story became famous for the nature of it’s addictive levelling system, exploration and the need to find that next sweet piece of loot. The console’s Ultimate Evil Edition of Diablo III sports a fantastic control scheme that works similarly to a twin-stick shooter, with an almost-perfect optimised and streamlined item/character management system that let’s you spend less time in menus and more time kicking evil’s ass. The silky smooth frame-rate, gorgeous art style and sharp graphics (on next-gen consoles) don’t hurt either.
Aside from the 10-12 hours needed to finish the story, this game has randomised elements and is designed to be finished multiple times with multiple characters. Additionally, with the inclusion of the Reaper of Souls expansion, new modes and the existing ability to play four player multiplayer online or locally, there is an almost endless amount of value and fun to be found.
It’s great value, great fun and comes highly recommended.
