While the Necromancer is probably not enough to get most players back into Blizzard’s action role-playing adventure, the character is still a blast to play. The Necro’s most exciting attack is the corpse explosion, which enables you to make a downed foe’s body explode and take other opponents down with them. Punching the key for Corpse Explosion over a pile of bloody torsos is satisfying — it’s like squeezing bubble wrap.
To experience that action for myself, I (GamesBeat PC gaming editor Jeffrey Grubb) had fellow staff writer Mike Minotti guide me through using the character. You can watch our necrotic adventures in the video above.
