RECOMMENDED : HIGHLY NOT, you shall not pass, run you fools


Reasons :

All version about Dungeon Siege on Steam are cursed.

Dungeon Siege 1 is incomplete (no add-on Legend of Aranna), no multiplayer and cut end game scene.
Dungeon Siege 2 is incomplete (no add-on Broken Worlds), no multiplayer and cut end game scene.
Dungeon Siege 3 is pure joke and will never be Dungeon Siege.

Stay as so far as you can from Steam versions about that serie.

If you own boxed version, play it about 1 & 2. Do legal copies to keep them safe and never sold these jewels because they cost a lot to buy online.

Ahhhh, this game.... This game... What can I say? I don't like writing negative reviews but, well... Let's just say this game is FAR below my expectations.

Let me start by saying that I have been a DIEHARD fan of the first two Dungeon Siege games. Those two games - Dungeon Siege II in particular - were a very nice, fun, and more light-hearted action RPG break away from my long-standing Diablo II obsession at that time. The first two games were pretty much Diablo clones, at least in terms of overall gameplay - point and click mechanics and the usual hack, slash, loot - wash, rinse, repeat routine, and I was very much okay with that.

So what's up with Dungeon Siege III? It's NOTHING like the first two games. I was so excited when I first learned that a new Dungeon Siege game was in the works, but after it was released, I read not-so-good reviews of the PC version in particular and after finally getting around to acquiring it myself to try and give it a fair shake, I was left shrugging my shoulders with a head-scratching "huh???"

Obsidian has essentially "console-ized" Dungeon Siege III. Kinda felt like a slap in the face to us longtime fans of the first two games - Dungeon Siege has always been a PC game, and the console focus of this installment made it not much fun at all. It doesn't even come close to feeling like the previous games. No more point and click mechanics, the character movement is now relegated to the usual WASD suspects on the keyboard. I figured since they "console-ized" this game, I'd pull out the Xbox 360 controller and try to approach it that way, maybe I'll enjoy it more, but no dice.

I can't stand the inventory management - it really would've been nice if they could've revamped it for the PC to be more like the first two games. I'm not a fan of the overall character management/leveling system either. Again, this is NOTHING like the original Dungeon Siege games.

The Dungeon Siege games were never very strong on story, so I wasn't expecting much in that regard. However, I've had such a hard time enjoying this game to get anywhere nearly far enough into it to fairly judge where Obsidian went with it. But as far as I can tell, they at least stayed true to some of the base lore in the earlier games.

I can't recommend this game. Sad as it makes me to have to badmouth a Dungeon Siege game, I just really wish they would've stuck to the tried-and-true formula. It's a shame, and I can only hope that someday, Obsidian - or any other good RPG game developer, for that matter - makes a Dungeon Siege IV that will return to the original PC-based point and click, hack n' slash approach.

Hey look! A couch co-op RPG! That looks like it's going to be gr-...

What do you mean only the host of the game keeps any progress made?

I believe this game's biggest crime was naming it Dungeon Siege III. I found the game enjoyable as an action RPG-lite style game in a vein similar to the Overlord series, Dragon Age II, and perhaps Trine. Think Gauntlet and you'll be on the right track. Its a decent bit of cartoonish fantasy fun that works better with a gamepad than the traditional keyboard and mouse setup. The game features a dialogue/choice system similar to Bioware's. It's not quite as fleshed out, but not quite as pointless either. Decisions you make are neither good nor bad, just different, and will effect how things carry forth from the point they are made. With the excellent Treasure of the Sun DLC the entire game clocked in at 20 hours for the first play through including all but a few side quests. The previously mentioned choice system and four character classes lends the game a fair bit of potential replay value

The only reason I have this game is because it came together in a free package deal when buying my new video card. I had happy memories of the original Dungeon Siege and Dungeon Siege II; so I was excited to play this to finish my collection as I always wanted it, but never got around to it.

15 minutes in I was feeling sick. I mean, Dungeon Siege was always a generic fantasy setting but had a charming 1980's D&D feel. This was just so bland, and I dare say the Dungeon Siege movie was more visually inspired than this game.

The graphics look good at first, but the animations of the first NPC you run into is just cartoonish puppet looking and uncanny valley at the same time.

The lipsync was terrible, the eyes of NPC's dead and souless. Combine this with lack luster voice acting...I just couldn't get invested.

First impressions are important, and it did not impress, but I continued playing further. An hour in and I still found myself exiting the game to play something else because I was bored. I couldn't be hooked!

However, the major killer of this game is the camera, damn thing is clunky when being adjusted. It also turns so fast and wildly around making you sick and is never in a tactical advantageous position.

Also seeing how Dragon Age Origins came out a couple years before Dungeon Siege III, I couldn't help but compare the two. The graphics, animation, gameplay, camera and interface was just lackluster compared to a simliar sword and sorcery fantasy RPG. It feels like a cheap product trying to lure in some of the same audience by the way they were marketing this game and hyping it.

Some might say I have nostalgia glasses, but I have nothing against a game franchise trying out different styles so long as it's good or enjoyable. I got together some distant friends who were not familiar with the Dungeon Siege series, but were familiar with other RPG's or avid players and they too were unimpressed even as casual gamers.

I later learned from a review by Ross Scott of Accursed Farms; that one of the key and unique features of Dungeon Siege, it's large party system which could include up to eight party members active at one time, was not present. Having bombastic large melee's was one of the most memorable and fun things about Dungeon Siege and it's gone. Well, that killed any chance of me picking up the game again.

I uninstalled it and I wish I could delete it from my library.

I don't even want my money back; I just don't want to remember owning or playing this.
