Having gotten to 70 and done some endgame now, I can say I will bump up my rating one notch to 7/10 simply because there is at least something more to do at 70 other than grind certain acts over and over. The bounties are usually simple and short and let you see a variety of locations. Once enough of these are done you can do a nephalem rift which is substantially longer, but still takes you through a few maps before spawning the rift guardian. Once completed you get a nice stash of loot and exp.

The main campaign though I still feel is pretty dull. A lot of the new mobs are just annoying more than they are creative and the level design for westmarch feels the same way. You literally get something like 2 new "zones" to go through before getting to malthael. The city of westmarch itself is large and although it is a new area, that new car feeling will wear off fast and you will realize that is just a giant city that you have to grind through before getting to the next zone. The only saving grace for it is that it has a ton of buildings with mini events that you can do which, although it mixes things up a bit, it actually makes the zone feel even longer. The other zone "pandemonium" is worse, feels long and windy, and has a lot more narrow pathways whereas westmarch had more open space and had more character to it. This zone has very few mini events and overall there is just nothing interesting about pandemonium imo. The story itself is just too simple imo and I feel like they could have done a lot more with it especially with malthael's character. I feel like I had a good idea about what was going to happen just from watching the opening cinematic before the game was even released! I dunno maybe I have played too much MGS in my day, but I expected a much more interesting story than what ROS delivered. Malthel could have been so much more intriguing if they went deeper into his character rather than just make him simply good guy gone bad and I have to eliminate him and save the world.

The loot is obviously much improved at all levels. I've got a barb and DH to lvl 65 atm, but I can't say that westmarch is all that great at least in my opinion. I guess I just don't like some of the new mobs and the level design(they seem too long and boring although there are more mini-events). The story doesn't seem any more creative either. Skills didn't improve much and even with the new paragon system I don't really feel that "powerful" with the added boosts, although it does help more for low level characters. The crusader is pretty solid thus far and I'm guessing it'll be a blizzard thing where any new classes they release are going to feel extra powerful compared to the basic classes. For now I give the game a 6/10 and if things improve at lvl 70, maybe I can bump it to 7/10. To be honest they should leave the XP boost on forever because that's when I had the most fun lol....probably not gonna happen but oh well, guess I'll play something else.

Will play on PC in April. I hope it's really well optimized because even though I got the original DS for like 5 bucks on steam....it was so annoying to go through all that crap to make it properly playable on PC.

I guess the benefit with consoles is less server nonsense compared to PC.

That PS4/vita bundle sounds nice if you want a vita especially if it comes in at under $600 and should be available soon. I may try and get one although I don't know how much I'd use the vita. Hopefully there are some better games out by the end of the year that can be bundled with the console.
