'Ultimate Evil' a must-have for Diablo fans
Sept 5, 2014
By John Powell - G4 Canada
After hours and hours of adventuring and slaying monsters in Diablo: The Ultimate Evil Edition; I finally have completed my personal quest.
Gold? Whatever. Experience points? Never mind. Boss battles? Who cares?
As a Monk, all I wanted was some pants to wear. You know, so I could walk around the kingdom with some dignity and not have villagers snicker behind my back. My slick new leather britches made all the sacrifices and all of the hard work worthwhile.
Diablo: The Ultimate Evil Edition is all about the pants.
Diablo: The Ultimate Evil Edition truly is the essential release for hard-core Diablo fans but even more so for anyone interested in trying their hand at the exceptional RPG. Included in the package is Diablo 3 (of course), the superb expansion pack Reaper of Souls and Adventure Mode, which was only available to those who downloaded the Reaper of Souls expansion.
In Adventure Mode, all of the waypoints are unlocked so players can travel and journey wherever they wish. They can explore the Nephalem Rifts (randomized dungeons) and collect the 23 bounties that are available. With the non-linear Adventure Mode, players can infinitely explore to their heart's desire. Also part of Adventure Mode are The Crusader class, a new chapter in the Diablo 3 campaign, raised level caps and a host of other welcome tweaks.
The Ultimate Evil Edition is comrade in arms friendly as well. There is a three player co-op, you can trade loot with your friends using the mailing system and avenge their deaths in the Nemesis Mode.
For those who played Diablo 3 on their last-gen console there is some good news. Since you can seamlessly import your character over, there is no need to fret over having to grind things out all over again. So, not only do the graphics get a healthy boost but all that time you invested in the previous iteration wasted in any way.
From those fashionable medieval pants to all of that glorious infinite hack and slash adventuring, The Ultimate Evil Edition has all the RPG goodness you could ever want in one slick package.
