Giant Bomb’s Diablo III Review the “Ultimate” Analysis

Traditionally a PC franchise, this particular version performs exceedingly well on consoles.

Traditionally a PC franchise, this particular version performs exceedingly well on consoles.

Diablo is an iconic franchise but its roots are firmly entrenched in the PC world. That’s why previous franchise entries on consoles haven’t fared as well, and why many fans were skeptical of a console release for Diablo III.

But the latest updated version, Diablo III: Ultimate Evil Edition, has captured the hearts of critics and gamers everywhere. Many will argue that it’s still superior on PC, but the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One versions are nothing to sneeze at. There are plenty of opinions floating around out there but we’ve chosen to go with an old industry veteran for our latest Honored Review.

It’s former GameSpot journalist and current Giant Bomb critic Jeff Gerstmann, who penned an excellent analysis of the recently released game. It’s a well-paced, well-balanced review that manages to hit the highlights, provide the necessary details, and even offer a modicum of cordiality and entertainment. This is one of the most comprehensive reviews we’ve seen, so take note.

It will always be a legendary PC franchise but console players don't have to miss out.

It will always be a legendary PC franchise but console players don’t have to miss out.

Why We Like It:

— The best way to start a review of an entry in an iconic, long-running franchise is to provide the reader with some appropriate history. We get that right off the bat here.

— The critic focuses on how well the developers adapted a traditionally PC game to consoles, which is critical for the readers. It might be the most important determining factor for would-be consumers.

Addresses how the expansion is built into this edition and in this case, it’s not quite as streamlined and fluid as the critic would’ve liked. It’s another important note for curious gamers.

Congrats, Jeff!

It’s awesome. That is all. 🙂

It’s one of the best games out, plain and simple. It’s still best played on PC, though.

Never really liked Gerstmann’s reviews but this one is good.

I’m actually playing through this now (I know it’s late, but I gotta play it some time). It’s pretty cool but as a newbie to Diablo, there’s a lot I don’t understand.
