The auction house? Gone. Loot? Packed with meaningful effects, and obtained by actually playing the game. Cutscenes? Check a box to skip them all. You should do it. To click that box is to defeat an evil more vile and corrupt than any demon in the game.

Diablo III is finally the game it should have been at launch. Now the first expansion is here. Reaper of Souls is a proper Diablo expansion by virtue of having a silly name and adding a new Act to the campaign. Since we have already fought in Heaven and Hell I can only presume that the setting is Skeleton Warrior Water Park.

Reaper of Souls also introduces a new class, the Crusader. While this shield-carrying holy warrior may seem like a reworking of the Diablo II Paladin, a closer look at the Crusader's skills reveals a rather unconventional character.
