Gameplay is unique, the devs are awesome, content is constantly being added, the community is actually listened to and cosmetic. The replayability value is insane and there’s easily hundreds of different builds you can make. The game is also very challenging but rewarding with a vast, complex economic system (No gold, you trade with poe currency that are also be used for crafting) with hundreds of unique items that can make a build possible or transform a build into something completely different. I cannot praise this game enough, everything from the map design, music, boss mechanics, atmosphere, graphics, animations, combat are beautifully executed. If you love RPG’s and havn’t tried this out, you must try this game.
Path of Exile brings together some of the best things in games. Tons of Leagues, the PoE equivalent to the Seasons in Diablo, which each have a new “gimmick” that makes the game interesting and fun to come back to time and time again, with each new feature spicing up the fantastic story. Even if you don’t care about the story, and find staring at the same enemies over and over again, there’s an abolutely MASSIVE perk tree to mix and match to boost your build. Skills in PoE aren’t locked to a single class, either. So long as you have the stat points, you can use any of the Skill Gems, which ranges from standard “Necromancer” builds, which raise undead and spread disease to the hordes of enemies you’ll be able to go toe-to-toe with, or a “Rogue” built around being a tornado of blades, capable of running through levels at high speeds as they simply cut a hole through the chest cavities of enemies.
But, maybe you prefer a more lax approach, maybe you like base building, and daily quests. Path of Exile has that too, with nearly all decorations you find being able to be purchased from one of the cast of Exiles you can find around the maps with quests for you, allowing you to build a spacious library, an arena built overlooking the waterways of Sarn, or a forested canopy that looks like it would need Hidden Power to make.
PoE has something for almost everyone, and though you may feel the story gets a bit repetitious, the graphics and attention to detail on decent PCs can keep you entertained as you level yet another class through the same story and not even notice.
