Dungeon Siege was one of my favourite games growing up. This is a Diablo like dungeon crawler, action RPG hack and slash.

You start out with one character, which you create yourself in classic RPG fashion, and set out on your journey. Along the linear path, you meet you adventures who will join your party, by the end of the game you will have up to eight different party members, and there are three different classes which your characters can take the role of, melee, range and mage. I found the melee and range characters levelled up a lot quicker than the mage but it didn't seem to make that much difference in the grand scheme of things.

You can really get into micromanaging your party once you get a couple of members, the game allows you to pause real time action to let you give orders for your characters. You can also just sit back and let the AI work it out with the very initiative behaviour system; you can set each characters default behaviour for certain circumstances which gives you the hands off approach.

The graphics show their thirteen year age here; although back when this game was originally released, this was one of the best looking games of its time. Bare that in mind before you judge the pixels!

The game play is very linear, there is no reason to back track in this game as enemies do not respawn, and you just need to push on forward. The zones are nicely put together, with lots of different hidden areas off the main track, allowing you to explorer and find hidden treasures or maybe a small side boss. The dungeons themselves are massive, you can find yourself getting lost in all of the corridors; this isn't a bad thing though as you just keep on squishing all the enemies till you find your path again. You are playing a dungeon crawler, so you should expect that.

I've been playing Dungeon Siege for about twenty odd hours now, this was to complete the whole game including side quests; as with all games of this type, it's highly recommended you do these as they give you extra rewards and more story to immerse yourself in.

Even on newer operating systems I didn't have any technical issues, it was a shame I couldn't ramp the resolution right the way up, but I am sure if you look out there you can find mods that allow you to do so.

In this day and age, Dungeon Siege will only appeal to a certain audience, newer gamers will probably instantly dislike it because of the way it looks. However, if you want to try out a classic RPG game with tons of content, then Dungeon Siege is a pretty good starting point which you won't be disappointed in.

Hey people! Dungeon Siege is one of the finest RPG games i've ever played, and do not worry, even though Steam does not make it Legends Of Aranna Available, you can go over to the workshop and on guide section and you'll have an tutorial to enable it, so what you are waiting for? I've created the guide!
This game is a piece of art, buy it!

An awesome game that is missing from Steam. I have put many hundreds of hours into this game in the past. The copy Steam sells DOES NOT WORK ON NEWER SYSTEMS. It is also missing the expansion: Legends of Aranna. The disc version works perfectly, even on newer systems. WTF STEAM. If you want to play this game, find disc packs instead of the Steam version, and I assure you that you'll have a much better time. This is a very fun game, but DO NOT BUY IT FROM STEAM.

This game is great, I wish I could find my old CD copy. This is also the first RPG I have ever played, it was long ago when it came out that I first played it, oh the memories. The only downsides to the Steam version are that it does not contain the expansion pack and multiplayer is not functional.

Classic RPG.
All lovers of good old RPG should consider playing this.
Graphics are (very) old, yes.
AI is weak, yes.
Yet, still one of the best games i´ve played.
So glad i found this on Steam.

Old school dungeon crawling at its finest. The UI is a little clunky, but that's easy to overlook.

One of my all-time favorite games. I've played it through several times, and as a fantasy RPG/dungeon crawler, this game gets just about everything right. You start off as a solo adventurer fighting mobs, and looting treasure and weapons. Along the way, you meet more adventurers that join you in your quest. Ultimately, you end up with a party of six, and you choose how you want each person to develop their fighting style.

Other D&D-style games like Baldur's Gate have a very steep learning curve, and are heavy on the player maintenance. I think that Dungeon Siege strikes just the right balance between playability and maintenance.

One of my all time favorite games as a kid. This game doesnt have a very in depth story due to its age but the gameplay and constant excitement of leveling and finding new spells or companions keeps me going. The soundtrack feels epic and never any loading screens other than the first making the game feel relaxing to play. My only advice is to not be frightened by the single plaeyer character creation since you play the game zoomed out quite a bit and don't see the characters face much.

I played this game back in 2004 and in those days, what made this game so great was the multiplayer.
Since the multiplayer is long gone, I don't know what else to say but I'm disappointed. The single player is still fun though, brings back memories and all.

Dungeon Siege has one of the greatest OST (the main one is very catchy..), and I love how inventory works, for it's not one of those inventory system where swords, armors, potions are just 'square stickers'. There are no attribute/skill points. You just keep up with one type of combat for each characters (Melee, Ranged, Nature Magic, or Combat Magic) to level them up. And I personally love the story in this game.

I would recommend this game, but since there is no multiplayer, buy it when it's on sale.

I cannot recommend the game as it does not appear to run properly [Win7 64]. After spending about 3 hours trying various fixes and compatibility options and running into a multitude of issues including an invisible mouse cursor, missing videos, and crashes at various points but all prior to actually playing the game, I have to say you are better off making a purchase elsewhere.

The game is broken. It literally does not work. Graphics problems that have 18 different possible solutions (none of which worked for me) and a complete and utter lack of response to this issue even though it is well known. They literally are just trying to take your money.
