Dungeon Siege was the first game created by Gas powered games. Founded by Chris Taylor, who created such beloved games like Total Annihilation.

Dungeon Siege is a party based rpg. You play as a humble farmer who has his/her farm attacked by an evil race called the "Krug". Taking it upon themselves, you then go from town to town ridding the land of whatever evil you find on a journey to destroy the source of it. The plot to Dungeon Siege isn't particularly interesting nor particularly fleshed out or focused upon. It's a background distraction that serves to get you from place to place.

What Dungeon Siege excels at is in the gameplay department. The entirety of the experience of Dungeon Siege is unabridged. It takes place in a world completely without loading screens. Even while transitioning from the overworld to dungeons. This is by far the most impressive thing the game does and it feels very authentic. Dungeon Siege feels like an odyssey, where you are constantly moving forward on a trek. It is also absurdly long and has an enormous amount of content with its optional multiplayer campaign (which is double the length of the singleplayer) and has an expansion pack which adds even more to the playtime.

The levelling system is very similar to something like Elder Scrolls, all of your stats level up based on using them. And levelling itself is automatic. Indeed the only real thing you can directly control with your character is what equipment they have and what spells they can use. This makes gameplay very fast and aside from fiddling with your inventory in shops, you spend little time outside of combat.

Dungeon Siege is a kind of mindless game at times. A lot of the combat feels very automated and you mostly just run in and watch your guys smack the enemies around for a little while and then loot bodies, very similar to older rpgs like Ultima. But this is one of the most memorable aspects of the game overall. It's a very comfy game where you just move forward on a journey as your guys pummel the crap out of everything.

I had a blast playing this game back in the day. My first experience to the ARPG formula. One of the best aspects of this game, was playing with friends online. Square Enix, since getting the franchise had no problem spending money to put their name all over the game, but disabled multiplayer, one of the games best features. The couldn't bother to even patch it. Without the multiplayer function, a big part of the reason I have fond memories of this game, I can't recommend the game.

First of all, every RPG collector should have this on thier steam list :

Great old school RPG
Great Story
Spectacular Mechanics
Amazing Combat
Superb Customization w/ companions
Diverse Classes Specialisation

Howerver I will not Recommend this to anyone Due to the GAME HAS NO ENDING (steam version) other than that it's peachy!

Doesn't work. I've tried literally everything, researching for hours on how to get this thing to work. The farthest I've gotten to is when you're about to gain control of the player, but then a "EXCEPTION DETECTED!" box shows up and the game crashes. I'm not the only one to have this problem, I actually found almost a dozen forums with people having the same problem. None of them have a solution that worked for me. You'll find a link in some of the other reviews down below. Tried everything in that, didn't work. Disabled Steam overlay, didn't work. Forced it to run in compatibility mode for Windows XP, didn't work. Tried screwing with screen resolutions, didn't work. I have no AV software installed, so that's not intefering. Pretty much tried everything I can think of, didn't work. This game doesn't work. I also bought it foolishly before it was on sale. Thank you Steam, for essentially making me throw seven dollars down the drain.

Why is this game ending stuck in an infinite loop? Because of this it can end. The original game (which I have) does not do this. It finishes properly. It also works fine in Legends of Aranna. I can't recommend this came to anyone because of this.

this game pretty much sucks, maybe it was good once but it aged like ♥♥♥♥ lol

edit: here's a real critique of the game for crybaby nerds who take steam reviews seriously...... the first 1-2 hours of gameplay are unrewarding and uninteresting, playing a solo magic user is an unbelievable grind, and the combat is dull and slow. the camera controls are crap, the game ignores your controls and commands semi-frequently, which is annoying as hell. art design is bland, music is unimpressive, and the plot is incredibly dull and practically non-existent. the game did not age well.

Solution for flickering in Windows 7 ( Also resolution fix ) (And also Multiplayer fix )

Hello
1- Open your Game Library
2- Right click on Dungeon Siege game and select Property and in following
screen click Define launch option button.
3- Add this to that textbox :
bltonly=true
4- Thats all Have a nice game :)

PS: If you need highter resolutions you can also add this line

Of course you can change those 1920 and 1080 values :D

PS2: If you want to use multiplayer option you also need to add
zonematch=true

As a summery you need to make Launch Option as
width=1920 height=1080 bpp=32 nointro=true bltonly=true zonematch=true

Also AFTER You done all steps please also do this :
1- Right Click on your desktop
2- Graphics Properities ( or if you didn't disable intel shortcuts Just press CTRL ALT F12 )
3- Change resolution to 800x600 ( Click yes i want this resolution )

5- Close it
6- From Window's resolution dialog change the resolution back to your real
resolution.

I really loved this game and had a lot of fun with it. Beyond ridiculous I cannot give this game a recommendation...

The issue? Well, the Steam version ruins the game completely. By this I mean, and this is a spoiler you NEED to hear! Once you kill the Last Ending Boss the game immediately cuts to the Main menu!?!? Your supposed to be able to look at your loot, watch the ending!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! and then have the option to move some of your characters to multiplayer.... you get non of that! I just spent over 30 hours on a game just to have the ending robbed from me! Looked this up on google this problem has been since it was put on Steam and they never fixed it, its been years!!!!!!!!!!!!! WTF

If your going to buy this, buy the actual disc, Im beginning to think steam is not the way to go for old PC games as I have had other issues with some other pc originals from the early 2000s as well.

Honestly the best part of this game was the multiplayer mode. Once you beat the main story the only thing left to do is to play the multiplayer game mode since its the only way to develope your character after the main story. Once Steam puts in the multiplayer mode, than this game might get better reviews.

I've got so many memories of this game, back when I was little we stumbled across it somehow & my brother I got addicted & modding it which back then was hard as well creating our own maps.

It's been a long time, but this game is still great thuough normal is to hard for me.

I don't normally like these types of games but this one is some how my favorite.

this game is absolutely fantastic! after I installed it I played it for nearly 9 hours non stop, the level of difficulty is quite challenging and the squared graphics brings back that good nostalgia feeling. super recommend!

obs.: the game wasn't working until I set all the graphic setting to the minimum. I thought it would make the game bad but it doesn't get in the way of the fun while playing at all ;)
