This game effectively killed the series - after falling in love with dungeon siege and it's expansions and sequel I have no clue who directed the game into this pile of ♥♥♥♥. Absolute trash GUI, mechanics, clunky AI, terrible skills, nothing that was loved about 1 or 2 is here.

If you liked Dungeon Siege 2, leave now because this is not the same. Biggest disappointment ever... How do you screw up an awesome game?

What happened to this franchise? The first and second games were incredible, this one is a pale imitation with horrible controls and confusing skill trees. It's the best looking Dungeon Siege game yet but that's where the praise ends. I tried to like it but was thwarted at eery turn. It took the "Play" out of Rold Playing Game...

Dungeon Siege III really falls somewhere between good and bad but in the end, I do think it was a fun experience.
The game takes place in a generic fantasy setting where generic evil people are being generically evil and you, the generic hero of a generic almost extinct generic group of generic heroes do generic things in the name of generic goodness.

My playthrough took place with a friend. He played the generic wizard and I played the generic swordsman. We played on the hardest difficulty. While the game offers some fun hack and slash combat, there's nothing very special with it. Each character has two modes (zwiehander/sword+shield, rifle/dual pistols, etc.) with three skills per mode in addition to three defensive abilitites. While I do believe you're supposed to use both of your modes, there seemed to be no benefit in doing so for me. I just went berserk with my zweihanders and that worked terrifically.

I can't say anything about lower difficulties but we mostly found the regular enemies to be rather trivial while the bosses were hard only because they could kill you in one or two hits. This was challenging and fun in its own way but not in a good way as this was more like artificial difficulty where you're punished for a single mistake.

With this in mind, the balance between bosses wasn't good, either. One early boss was super hard while others were a breeze. The penultimate boss was one of the hardest in the game while the last boss was a joke.

Lastly, the game had some notable issues with other aspects. The depiction of women felt rather sexistic as you could usually judge the moral level of a woman by looking at the size of her breasts. Big breasts - good person. Small breasts - evil person. The camera was a pain as my partner and I limited each others' movements, which was super problematic as he was a long range character and I was purely melee. As far as I know, the game is purely a console port and although it could actually be good, I'm not so certain that it's good if you don't have a gamepad to play with.

So that's my review. You can see that I ended up giving it a recommendation but that's a weak recommendation. I do not recommend buying this game unless you'll either have someone to play with or if you can get it for less than the base cost.

This game is quite bad. Well, the graphics and some of the mechanics are really good but the cam, multiplayer and other features like leveling up is terrible and annoying. Even picking up objects is a pain. I give this game a 4/10.
