MGS Reviews Diablo 3: Reaper Of Souls & Dead Island GotYE
6:00 AM | IMG News | 2 comments

Mac Game Store recently featured new reviews of Blizzard Entertainment's Diablo III: Reaper of Souls, and Deep Silver and Virtual Programming's Dead Island: Game of the Year Edition.

From the Reaper of Souls review:

Boss fights are vastly improved in Reaper of Souls. Diablo is notoriously easy for being the end of Act IV, but Malthael is no pushover and is a challenging fight on all difficulty levels. Not all the boss fights are hard, but they are all visually dynamic and make it feel suitably epic to take down the big baddies. I also noticed a significant increase in unique elites in Act V, and it was fun to take these various foes on. There is also a notable increase in random quests you find in each area, as well as side dungeons. The Blood Marshes area alone took me over 3 hours to complete as I explored every nook and cranny.
From the Dead Island review:
Taking clear inspiration from the Borderlands template, you have 4 characters each with a special ability of sorts and 3 skill trees. There are a multitude of randomly generated weapons with unique stats and occasionally elemental effects such as fire or electricity. The comparison stops there however and Dead Island is very much its own game despite borrowing ideas from others. Weapons can be upgraded and even modified to improve their stats. Stamina is a big part of the game, as each weapon swing reduces your bar, as well as running and taking damage. If you arenít careful, enemies can even knock you over. Every character can also kick things, which comes in handy in a variety of ways. It can stop a charging foe, or a jump kick can bash a zombie over where itís easier to deal with.
