    Diablo III is now a great game whereas at launch it was just merely good with the Auction House ruining the balance (thankfully I never once used it).

    I have it on PC, Xbox One and PS4, though I've only played the campaign to completion with a level 70 character in the latter two versions, mainly because I just enjoyed playing this kind of game with a controller. The direct control makes it far more enjoyable IMO that just clicking a mouse plus the dodge move really makes it a more action-arcade experience.

    At least something is cheap in Moscow :)

    But anyway, go ahead and get D3. If you find it on offer, even better. I paid around £12 for it and its definitely worth it. Only done one full playthrough and started few other character.

    Is the expansion worth it? I honestly got bored of the game and stopped playing before they added the Paragon levels so I'm not going to spend more money on it if it doesn't add anything significant

    I bought the game when it first came out and thought it was average at best. But seeing some other members here talking about how much it has improved I gave it second run through and it is so much better, even bought the RoS expansion pack 2 weeks ago for $25.

    Already got it. Im in act 1 atm. Well...it's a very high quality time killer I'd say.

    Try RU region. It's multi-language and you can able to play in US, EU servers - bought it, confirmed. It costs 1599 RUB or around 22-24 Euros for D3 + RoS.

    [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]

    From Battle.net account management --> Press Shop -- Press Diablo III --- Press Diablo III for 999 RUB --- Press Buy Now --- after pressing Buy Now button you will see the option to purchase either Diablo III for 999 RUB OR Diablo III with Reaper of Souls for 1599 RUB (my guess it's a discount atm) ...Russian Federation as "Country of Residence" is required ---

    One of the best games released in the last few years, easily.

    No doubt its worth it. Like everyone else has said, it has come a loooooooong way since release. Very good game now. I've put more hours into that game than I would like to admit.

    Uh, I paid half the price for RoS.

    But if you're going to recommend something better it's better be Path of Exile.

    That's some high level fanboy twaddle, Grim Dawn has the potential to be good but it's still an unfinished game on a low budget with a tiny dev team, I own and like it but it doesn't keep me playing once I've finished the new content. I have 100s of hours in Diablo and only about 20 in Grim Dawn. You really can't compare the two, they're leagues apart.

    I wish they had an offline, single player only game that would be sold for less... not interested in online play, would just like to see the story develops, as I've played Diablo I and II and all expensians, because I liked the story.

    You can play the story start to end without ever using any online features. Still on PC you should be online for the game to work. On consoles you don’t need to be connected to internet, because the characters data is saved offline.

    Yes, I'm aware, maybe I did not use the right words to describe what I'd be interested: only the SP game. Give me a discount of 75% because I don't need marvellous item drops or scaling enemy hoards, no coop, no teamplay, and I'd be interested. But I won't pay full price for a game I don't even plan on using both singleplayer and multiplayer mode...

    Added "how to" in my original post about purchasing this game bundle (DIII+RoS) for 25$...
