One of my favorite games of all time.

An action RPG (more RPG than ARPG, you mind), with an in-deapth storyline and good loot tables. They did a fantastic job with the atmosphere of each area, capturing the feeling of darkness and turmoil in each zone while keeping the individuality of each location.

The combat is challenging, and each playable character brings a feeling of uniqueness to the combat. The followers add support that (at times) is much needed. The loot system is decent, and upgrades feel exciting. Watching your gear change as you gain levels is as satisfying as it is in any other well-done ARPG.

As long as you're not looking to play this game with friends, you'll find DS3 to be a well-rounded, immersive game with a storyline that will suck you right in.

A lot of people ♥♥♥♥ and moan about this game in the reviews, and I can understand why. The game plays nothing like either of the first two titles, and is quite restricted in what you can customize about your character. That aside this is a really damned fine RPG, and the story is very much equal to the other Dungeon Siege titles. Available quests and in game lore pay a great deal of tribute to those titles as well. The biggest complaint I have for this one is the camera is really restricted in how far you can move it and zoom, there are a couple quick fixes available on the net that will remove this though, and that makes the game much better by itself. Locations and characters are quite beautifully done, and the voice acting is very good. The only real negative to this game is that the story cut scenes are basically poorly drawn stills with narration.

One of the best isometric action games there is. Definitely a really good game. Four playable classes, my fav being the mage because he has cool looking spells like clockwork bombs. I have beaten the game with him and the entire game was awesome. Now I am playing the dlc Treasures of the Sun with my gunner. The gunner can switch between a rifle and dual wielded weapons that include a one handed shotgun and pistol and she has some really powerful skills. The fighter chick can summon a fire dog to help and the warrior is pretty self explanatory with some good skills also. The voice acting is very good and the game has memorable sound effects. The mouth movement actually matches the words in most cases in cut scenes. That's some pretty good detail for a top-down action game. The music is superb and always fitting of the place and mood. The graphics are really very good and hold up very well even by today's standards. The best thing about the game is its unique combat system. You get two sets of weapons with three skills each, and you can hold right trigger to activate more powerful versions of your spells or hold left trigger to activate healing and defensive skills. Obviously I play with a xbox 360 controller and it actually works very well because otherwise I would never even consider using a controller for a isometric game. A good example of a game that you can easily find somewhere on sale for a steal or could actually pay its regular price of $15 and that is still a great price, especially since the game will give you around 14-16 hours of playtime as it did me.

8/10 one of my all-time favs.

Most of the negative reviews for this game are about it not being similar to the previous games and being a vastly different experience in the Dungeon Siege series. I've never played the first two games myself, however, even if I did, I would still believe Dungeon Siege III is a really good game. I would describe Dungeon Siege III as something that could be a Dragon Age action RPG spin-off.

Tell you what, try the demo and decide whether you want to buy it or not. If you are familiar with the Dungeon Siege games, try playing the third one again. You may actually like it, or not. Give it an hour or two. It could be a whole different game, but you know, if you enjoy playing it as much as I do, then it's a good game to you as much as it is to me.
