'Diablo III: Reaper of Souls Ultimate Evil Edition' for the PlayStation 4 is an action role-playing video game and is rated M for Mature, the game contains blood and gore and was published and developed by Blizzard Entertainment.

You ask a dozen different fans what Diablo means to them and you will no doubt get a dozen different responses. Some will shout out in joy about the way the series sculpted their gaming life to follow while others will mention sleepless nights spent at LAN parties. No matter what answer you get you will no doubt find yourself staring at the same core answer: Diablo is important and it means something. So when 'Diablo III' finally landed it came with an appropriate amount of fanfare. The initial offering was met with exuberance and then that exuberance turned to acceptance before everyone acknowledged that, well, the game was juts OK. Blizzard isn't okay with just O.K. So now we have the Reaper of Souls Ultimate Evil Edition hitting the marketplace and fans everywhere are once again going nuts.

For those people that played the 'Diablo III' release they noted that there were a lot of good things mixed in with a lot of not so good things. The action was all there but the reward system seemed out of whack. Let's not even discuss some of the difficulties fans had with getting online and playing with other people. So on that note we can definitely see where Reaper of Souls set its sights as it came to consoles and PC's everywhere. With two years of patching built into the release as well as a whole lot of fan feedback, this expanded edition of 'Diablo III' makes for a special treat.

An expansion without new content doesn't make any sense so let's take a look at what Reaper of Souls brings returning players to try out. Ultimate Edition first takes aim at the avatar of your control itself. You will see an increase in the maximum level cap along with an additional passive slot to play with. The skill system has been re-worked and streamlined and returning players can import their old avatar with ease. There is a new class as well to focus on: the Crusader. The Crusader is a special sort of Holy Fighter that capitalizes on medium to close range melee. All of these glossy new additions, tweaks, and re-works make the gaming experience so much more enjoyable and smooth. If this is your first foray into 'Diablo III' then make it your only one, do not look back.

Looking past the avatar itself we can see that there are a few new game modes to be played with. Kicking things off is the Adventure Mode. Adventure Mode offers players a completely unlocked game to play through. The storyline quests from your traditional Campaign Mode will be unlocked an in their place all of the waypoints will be accessible. In this mode it is time to kill things, a lot of things perhaps, on your way toward maxing out your avatar with the sweetest gear available. Followers of the 'Diablo III' storyline, no matter how cheesy it may be, will be excited to see that there is a fifth chapter of the storyline being added to take place in Westmarch.

As you fight your way through dead, undead, and dying enemies you will no doubt come across loot and goodies. Reaper of Souls changes the way that we interact with these things as the loot system has been re-worked. Loot 2.0 has lowered the amount of overall drops in favor of giving more frequent useful drops that fit your class. If you are playing for a friend there is now an in game mail system for you to send loot to wherever you need it to go. The endless hack and slash gameplay is as smooth and polished as ever and it will play just like any other Diablo game released before it.

'Diablo III: Reaper of Souls Ultimate Evil Edition' for the PlayStation 4 is a must own addition to any Diablo fan's library. This is probably the best, most complete, Diablo entry that we have ever been lucky enough to have in our hands. Who knows when Blizzard will drop something as good as Reaper of Souls in the future? It just might not happen. There is an almost endless replay value to keep you coming back for more.
