This is why I just get the digital version (+ it helps keep my collector's edition sealed for eternity :p). They really should ship them out a bit early, it's not like you can play early if you get your copy...

I got the email earlier today saying mine would be available in store tomorrow (25th). I didn't bother to go in for an 11pm CST release party. Not even sure if my store had one. Anyway, I'll just play a bit tomorrow after picking it up after work. I'm not too concerned.

So I went to bed. Launch had not happened yet. Woke up. Played for 15 min while my wife got ready to leave. Got to level 61 in 15 min and had to leave for work. So here I sit for the next 8 hours. It seemed to run perfectly smooth. Was surprised by the lvl 61 in 15 min but the next levels xp nearly doubled from 14mil to 27 mil.

I also found T1 to be a piece of cake with 1.4mil toughness and 85k dps on my monk. This was only to the first purple boss.

The Collectors edition art book has AR codes for a new Blizzard AR app for IOS that you can scan pages and look at 3d images of art from the game.

Beat it. Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
ending sucked
Not much new.
Not worth $40.




Ok, actual review, obvious spoilers - I'll do my best with tags, etc.:

The new areas are bland. Everything is brown - don't expect color. The mobs are pretty generic, with the exact same affixes as before. You start off in a town that plays pretty much like certain areas of act 1, then go on to a more open area that feels like act 3, then finally an area that's like act 4 (seriously - same art assets in places). The game play is exactly the same, and the new skills leave much to be desired (Played Wizard with a Monk and Barb - we all agreed the new skills suck). The new passives are however decent. Gear drop rate seems good for leveling, with more legionaries. In the 4.5 hours it took to beat it, I got about 6, maybe 7.

The story itself is extremely weak. It feels tacked on, and is portrayed in an incredibly vague way. Don't bother with it. Boss fights seem random and arbitrary, with no real logic behind them. The boss fights themselves amount to not much more than dodging INCREDIBLY obvious attacks (seriously, there's like a 3-5 second UI element that shows EXACTLY where bosses will hit), and hitting them for a long period of time. In general, all the bosses simply have a TON of health. With all 3 of us speced into single-target DPS on torment 1, the first "major" boss (the fire guy) still took a good ~5-6 min with no deaths. Boss fights pretty much suck - although they can drop good loot (the final boss dropped me 2 legs, and the other 2 players got 4).

The ending - SPOILERS: Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
Oh wow. "Hey, get ready for XPACK 2. Coming soon". It pretty much demands a terrible sequel. It doesn't end on a cliffhanger, it just ends with "and I can see the [player] facing a dangerous foe in the future" (gist). It's just painful. There isn't even an ending cinematic. You kill death-guy, and Tyreal gives you about 4 lines of dialogue. That's it. The end. Its awful.

I'll need to try out the adventure mode (when I can get my group) to do a full review, but as it stands, I would avoid this like crazy. It's simply NOT worth the asking price of $40. If it was $10-$15, it would be worth it.

I didn't look at your ending review but that's too bad to hear about what you think. When I found out it was only one act for $40 I thought it was too much as well. I've only played it for 15 min but hopefully the other "modes" kick it up a few.

Just hit 70 a few hours ago with my bro. Pretty fun so far. Little bit tough when you have a full group. Started out at T3 then when the mobs got more HP with lvl 70 scaling then we put it down.

I played about an hour and a half tonight, all the enemy's felt familiar, I also noticed how dark and mono-color feeling. I don't think I have played enough to really make a call, but I am sure it won't be worth the $40 but I am sure it would be worth at least $20.
