After receiving my monthly PC Gamer magazine with the included demo disc in the mail, I excitingly ripped it from its plastic and installed the Diablo II Demo. It was my first introduction to the isometric action RPG genre, and I was immediately enthralled. It wasn’t long until I bought the full game, and has been one of my favorite kinds of games to play. With the release of Diablo II: Resurrected, I’m able to relive those moments from 21 years ago, as it’s a complete remastering of Diablo II and its only expansion, Lord of Destruction. This remaster is everything you’d want it to be, and more; offering an uncompromising experience for veterans, and a stiff, but great introduction for newcomers.
The Necromancer has been requested to be added to Diablo III, since before the game’s release in 2011 and the years that followed. As for the characters in the main roster of Diablo III, the Witch Doctor quite simply didn’t fill in the void when it was learned that the Necromancer would not be a playable character. Fast forward to 2017, and the Rise of the Necromancer Pack is here. The arrival signals concern as there’s no new quests to accompany the price of the character. The Necromancer is however, one of the best-playing caster classes in the game, and is incredibly powerful solo or in co-op.

Diablo III released to the previous generation of consoles last year. And so, Diablo III: Reaper of Souls – Ultimate Evil Edition is mouthful to say, but contains a compilation of an original game and its recent expansion, with a whole host of changes exclusive to the console that PC players will be begging for.
Reaper of Souls may have taken Blizzard two years to develop and release, but it comes like a bat out of hell to get you straight into the action. This, along with the recent “Loot 2.0” patch that is available to all make Diablo III the game we’ve wanted all along.
