About the Game

A game filled with heavy combat action, fast-paced tactics and decision making, Space Siege is an all-new science fiction themed action-RPG being developed by Chris Taylor and his talented team at Gas Powered Games, the creators of Dungeon Siege I & II and Supreme Commander.

As humans are fleeing the planet during a massive alien attack on Earth, only one of five evacuation colony ships escapes intact before Earth is completely obliterated by the attacking aliens. In Space Siege, you take on the role of Seth Walker, a combat engineer aboard the Armstrong (the lone surviving ship). Your objective is to protect the human race from being annihilated by this unknown alien species. Ultimately, you must make a horrific choice: will you sacrifice your humanity to save the human race?

At your disposal will be an arsenal of futuristic weaponry and armor, cybernetic upgrades, and a robotic partner that you can customize and command. Space Siege will also feature a single-player campaign that takes place across the vast confines of the Armstrong, a separate mission-based multiplayer campaign, character-building gameplay elements and a storyline that asks: What does it mean to be human?

Features:

  • Tactical Combat Action - Outsmart your enemies by setting up ambushes, dodging attacks, ducking behind cover, and using any of the multiple special abilities available to you.
  • Multiple Gameplay Paths - Define your game experience with the decisions you make. Will you remain truly human in the face of insurmountable odds? Or will you enhance your abilities with cybernetic technology to even the score? Customize your character with multiple skills and special abilities that fit your style of play, but realize, all your decisions will have repercussions.
  • Customizable Robotic Partner - Upgrade HR-V, your robot companion, with armor, weapons and special equipment. Command HR-V to perform offensive and defensive tactical combat maneuvers or combine your efforts and unleash special attack combos.
  • Chilling Sci-Fi Story - Follow a multi-chapter storyline and make key decisions that determine the best means to deal with the ferocious alien menace. Interact with dozens of characters with their own histories and personalities - no more "generic NPCs".
  • Online Multiplayer - Up to 4 players can play cooperatively in a separate multiplayer campaign designed specifically for online play. Customize enemy difficulty and toughness to best fit your skill level.
  • Futuristic Combat Technology - Access high-tech weaponry and armor in addition to advanced cybernetic upgrades that will offer powerful abilities with both risks and benefits.

This isn't a bad game... there's just no replayability, really. Sad too, because the concept could've definitely gone somewhere.

Still, catch it on a deep discount and it's worth it.

"You can’t always get what you want. But if you try, sometimes you get what you need."

If you think Space Siege is a spiritual successor to the Dungeon Siege series, you will be disappointed. On the surface this game looks like an action role-playing game with interesting physical effects and multiple weapons you can customize. But the AI does not provide any tactical challenge and the controls are below-average (e.g. keyboard mappings cannot be changed). Further shortcomings are the total lack of side quests and a layout of levels and missions that is remarkably linear. Your only companion is an android and its silence will only be interrupted by the constant explosions around you. The cybernetic choices are a bit more meaningful but its implementation feels rushed and unbalanced. In the end this game works as a representative of the action genre, but just barely.

Is your humanity more important than your life?
Space Siege was a surprisingly good game. With fluid combat gameplay and light-RPG mechanics, Gas Powered Games managed to craft a unique but short story-driven experience. There are plenty of upgrades to pick from, and hordes of enemies to blast through, but the most memorable aspect of this game for me was the choice between whether or not to cybernetically enhance myself.
The game reminds you, in no uncertain terms, that enhancing yourself will make you vastly more powerful but that each enhancement will also slowly deprive you of your very humanity.
So I ask you again: is your humanity worth dying for?

Following all of the negative comments I see about this game, it exceeded my expectations. It's clearly a Gas Powered game, remnants of the previous Dungeon Siege "surprise mechanics" are present though this is quite different in terms of combat as you're in full control rather than watching and managing. I would have preferred a leveling system and random gear than the linear progression the game provides, that would have allowed much more flexibility though I can see where it wouldn't make much sense given how short the game is. If I had one complaint it would be that the game feels like one big marketing campaign for the period sensitive Ageia PhysX, while that was entertaining at first there was so much of it that I couldn't help but think the game was made for PhysX rather than it being a feature of the game. Nevertheless I'm glad I played it, it was certainly entertaining for the 10 hours it took to complete. If you're a fan of the late Gas Powered Games then you likely enjoy this as well.

This game is about how becoming one with a machine makes you question your humanity but playing such a terribly unfun game makes me question the developer's humanity.
