An amazing adventure where you control your party, kill and loot. The best feeling is when you finally come to a town and sell all the loot you picked up. this is a must play if you like old school games. the graphics look quite impressive for it's time.

Ahhh Dungeon Siege, I believe this was the first RPG type game I played on the PC. I loved the sound track so much as a kid and it brings back so much nostaliga to have played this again. I also was able to get the Legends of Aranna part to work and was able to play that too. The ShadowJumper, so much fun to kick his *** again. An amazing game, part of my childhood, over all just so awesome to be able to see the world of Aranna again. 10/10

Dungeon Siege is an old isometric action-RPG. It was quite original for the wanna-beat-Diablo game of year 2003, but now it can attract only a small group of players with the taste for "old-school games". With the slight remark that DS is not as much old-school, being just an Arpg (with emphasis on Action and not RPG).

However, for an action-rpg it has very promising setting, with the story based on the heritage of the legion of a great empire, lost in the world of magic, and, the most noticeable - the clever system of character grading, where you "levelling" your heroes only when using specific skills. Shoot the bow - become dexterous archer, cast spells - and take a gain in "intelligence" and magic power. Or, well, just bash'em all with a stick or shovel - as you start your adventure with the "child of farmer lost his home" background.

Other than character evolution, Dungeon Siege "key features" are not likely to take your interest, as following the story turns out too thankless task. Well, unless we return to the levelling system - as there you can hire companions (up to 7) and train them to fit your tactics. So you can gather a somewhat standard band, like 2 melee, 2 archers, 2 mages, 2 healers... or to mix all the roles at your leasure. You can even hire 7 mules to carry your stuff, and fight your way all alone... if you that attracted to the DS, which I doubt.

Oh, well. Do I like Dungeon Siege? Sure, it brings some memories, and it is still not bad, if you know the drill. The interface was fine back in time, and it is still quite easy to get along. Although... the gameplay not aged that well, for my tastes. What was quite alright in time between Diablo 1 and 2, now feels... too plain. Bland even.

Can I recommend it to the people who are new to the plethora of games, made more than 10 years back? Barely. People, who started to play in time of Mass Effect rising, certainly will be having hard times motivating themselves to play Dungeon Siege I. It was good back then, but now... now it's worth buying only if you know already what you're getting yourself into.

Nostalgia project, with personal mark 7/10 - for the fun time back in the days. It was nice while it lasted.

My childhood when I was a young boy is back.
Thanks to Steam. It has much bugs and it took
about 20 hours to finally start the game without
flickering, gathering exception data or random shutdowns.

But WORTH IT! I love this game!

Not a perfect game by any stretch and I mainly play for nostalgia so I have a good time. I honestly don't know if I'd recommend this to someone who hasn't played it before but for me it's a thumbs up.

I) RECOMMENDED :

- YES if you buy it when <=75% off & are huge fan
- NO at full price



II) WARNING


- Steam version doesn't include legend of Aranna, multiplayer and editor. It's huge shame.
- compatibility issues (exceptions) with Windows version > 7
By luck, you can restore manually compatibility & multiplayer. See guide below.
- no editor to create your own content

Theorically you should'nt support Square Enix because they ruined all DS version on Steam compared to boxed version.


III) GUIDE to force compatibility & multiplayer :


__guide beginning__

1) Compatibility

-- In DS directory --
(should be something like Steam\Steamapps\common\dungeon siege 1\) :

- force DungeonSiege.exe to be launched as "Windows XP SP2 compatibility"
- run DSVideoConfig.exe, change video driver settings as "Primary Display Driver" avoiding any TnL option. Cancel shadows as well because they are often problems in-game with modern hardware.

-- In your Steam library --
right-click on game name and change settings :

- uncheck Steam overlay

2) Modern screen & multiplayer

-- In your Steam library --
right-click on game name and change settings in properties :

- game launch option, add this command below
zonematch=true width=1600 height=1200
to force game to be displayed in modern config (replace 1600x1200 by your own screen config)

zonematch=true allow only multiplayer, for solo just write zonematch=false
Public servers are gone, you can only play multiplayer in local.

For multiplayer, you must use Tunngle account to force computer to find your friends like they were playing on local with you, because all online multiplayer servers are gone.

__ guide ending__


IV) GUIDE to install Legend of Aranna


Even if you can find such guide on Steam, i don't support it for many reasons :
- it's 100% illegal to install software without license. Those who pretend some Steam version can be downloaded with Legend of Aranna included are pure liars. It's illegal content to update Steam version with cracked no-cd version. Square Enix don't own rights about DS1 & DS2 add-ons.
- you must replace your exe files to anothers at your own risk
- some guide's owners add you as friend, help you to solve all problems about DSLOA install but when it's end, come to beg you for free gift game. NEVER TRUST ANY GIFT. Unfriend these swindlers immediatly because real friend never ask to you something just to help you.


V) EVALUATION :

Even if this Steam version doesn't include Legend of Aranna, i must admit i take pleasure to play it because i'am real fan of this serie (i talk about DS1 & DS2, DS3 is only pure joke and won't be DS game).

[Good]
- easy real-time Hack'n'Slash without need of gear optimization to play it
- 4 classes to play : Warrior (melee+shield), Archer (ranged), Mage (natural or war)
- autoleveling stats depending on which weapons you use, on each up you gain major xp on your main stat depending on weapon your use and full regen HP/mana, on each fight round you receive short xp to increase stas & skills.
- progressive difficulty
- some hidden areas to discover

[Bad]
- no tp to city/merchants to sell junk, you must use spell to convert junk or play game as rogue-like getting only essential
- no shared stash to share your items between characters (multiplayer)
- no mobs respawm in solo game (you must play with limited XP & loots)
- no world quest saved in multiplayer (when you quit game, you loose all current quest activated, but it seem possible to do quests each time you log in)
- mage classes are pain to play due to lack of active spell slots
- only normal difficulty mode
- missing content & broken end-game.


Buy it only when discounted price like -75% off or less.


To be continued (i'am currently testing Steam version fully, i'll update later my evaluation)...

I played the original RPGs a long time ago on my Commodore 64. Bard's Tale, Wizardry, Ultima, Might and Magic... the games that started it all. Then a great many years passed before I revisited the RPG, in fact, it wasn't until MMORPGs came about that I fell in love the with genre all over again.

Playing through Dungeon Siege I felt like the dots had been connected between the old school RPG and the modern MMO. I bought 1, 2, and 3 in a combo pack, but I only played through the first. I played through it entirely, and enjoyed the trip down memory lane. I'm going to recommend it, it's a good a game and deserves a thumbs up, but you'll likely only enjoy it for the nostalgia if you're old like me, or as a history lesson if you're a youngster. It's probably the oldest RPG I can imagine any one enjoying playing through start to finish.

All i can say is Wow... not touched this game for like 15 years or so, i absolutley destroyed this game when it was released, so when i saw it on steam i was like well it costs next to nothing, why the hell not, lets give it another blast.

about 10 minutes in after i had got used to the low resolution i was hooked again, I have been playing Diablo 3 for the last few years and as much as Diablo 3 is an awesome game, i never reached the level of immersion i did with DS all those years ago, So here we go again, slashing my way through Ehb once again,

I would add to anyone starting out, check out the DS discussion pages here on steam, after reading through them, i have now got my DS upgraded to the Legends of Arianna expansion and also have it running in 1920 x 1080, which really does polish the game off nicely...

Anyhow, laters i got Krug to slay.

A word of caution: the game crashes right after the end boss is defeated. There are several forum postings on this issue but it doesn't seem that it was ever resolved. You can watch the end on youtube but it's still a bit of a letdown.

The level up system is like runescape where you use that type of attack and level up the associated attributes with use. Game was amazing as a kid and the combat was a mix of diablo and dragon age. The game is very dated to be warned and the Jason Stathom movie adaptation is so cheesy you could make a pizza and still have enough for some Mac N Cheese. Whatever you do dont get the third one though. Its the tried and true result of someone making the decision that they should take everything that defined the game, throw it out, and try to pass off a steaming pile of ♥♥♥♥ to its fanbase. Shout out to that "Red Rental Box" for saving me ample money in this current market mindset of bait and switch games.

Best to play this awesome classic via the exe, not via Steam.
Also remain in 1024x768.

This was my first arpg and from day one I was addicted to this masterpiece.
A lot of management between the characters (armor & weapons) and you can even a pack animal with you to take more loot with your party.
The world is very big and with a lot of variation in flora, fauna and monsters.
I completed it back then and now i wanna play at least to the swamp :)

Is this a game for you? I don't know, but I can tell you for me personnaly I like this more than part 2 and 3 together !

NOTE: this game as far as I can tell is one of the most sporadic games on Steam. For some people, the game doesn't work at all. Others cant play in high resolutions, others can't get the multiplayer to work, and others can't get the expansion to work. I personally was able to get the game running (turn your shadows down btw) flawlessly, and I was able to bruteforce anti aliasing with Nvidia control panel, so the game looks great for 2002. Your mileage will more than likely vary.

Dungeon Siege is a fantasy ARPG with the blandest ♥♥♥♥ing story in gaming history. First off, this game basically plays itself. My party consists of 6 melee characters and I just send in the tank first into a fight and watch 6 characters beat the snot out of monsters while I hit a hotkey to make some people heal every now and again. It feels like an arcade game, where it's pretty god damn easy a lot of the time, but every now and again has a difficulty spike to ♥♥♥♥ you up.

Aside from the fact that I've won many fights without even pressing anything, and has almost 0 strategy, this game is fun as hell. If your fun comes from winning challenging fights through tactics and strategy, you won't like this game. If you like to just watch a bunch of guys beat the ♥♥♥♥ out of monsters for a minute, then grab loot, and repeat for an hour or so, you'll love this game. The best part about this game imo is that its a journey. You walk down a pretty linear path, with your party consisting of up to 8 people including pack mules, into different environments, killing ♥♥♥♥ in caves, and finally hitting a town after a few hours to unload all of those nifty lil items you got from the monsters you mugged. Then you do this bunch more times and you eventually win.

Hey, if you enjoyed watching your crew beat the ♥♥♥♥ out of monsters for like 10-15 (tbh i forgot how long this game is) hours, YOU CAN DO IT AGAIN. Theres a wonderful man who published a guide on how to get Legends of Aranna singleplayer expansion for the steam copy of Dungeon Siege in case yours didn't have it. This is basically more of the same, just going down a road beating the ♥♥♥♥ out of monsters with a new gang, but in different environments.

Hey, if you enjoyed the expansion pack or the main campaign, YOU CAN DO IT AGAIN. This game has a ♥♥♥♥in multiplayer mode with IP and LAN methods of connection, so you and I think 7 other people can go around a NEW world thats much more open than either of the singleplayer campaigns, and beat the ♥♥♥♥ out of monsters for a while. The multiplayer map is roughly 2x as big as the main campaign's map, and is much more open. I have beaten the multiplayer with someone and it was great. I haven't tried any, but there are mods that allow you to play the multiplayer campaign, solo, with a full squad of 8 characters.

Its a pretty mindless journey of an ARPG, but if you want to just watch 1-8 people mug monsters for loot for a while, or do it with some buds, this game is great. Just remember this game does whatever the ♥♥♥♥ it wants in terms of it functioning.

It is an old but a gold game.
Pros:
- Exciting and rich story
- Lots of items
- Lots of enemies
- Nice graphics (Considering its release date)
- Cool environment design
- Long gameplay

Cons:
- Some elevators are too small to carry all of the team.
- Controlling all the team is sometimes really difficult.

Totaly worths trying.

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.

Do I recommend this game? To most people, yes. To some people who only favor the new generation of video games... Not so much.

Dungeon Siege is mainly a game you would play for nostalgia; or if you're just a fan of mysterious, old school RPGs that don't hold your hand or if you're just a RPG collector in the first place, and seek a new game to add to your collection.

Since Dungeon Siege was the first game I ever played, my review may bare some bias: but hopefully, that shall not be the case.

Dungeon Siege MIGHT not have the most advanced combat system, but with the amount of interesting characters you can control (8 at maximum, if I'm correct) such as a dwarf, an archer, a alcoholic yet skilled warrior and even a half giant (in the expansion pack!) you can create a team of adventurers with all kinds of strategy and you can find and loot all kinds of accoutrement to independantly equip each party member you are controlling.

The game may seem very linear at first but if you're willing to playthrough the game over one time you'll discover many secret locations and party members which you may not have discovered from the first playthrough, something special Dungeon Siege always captured me with was the mystery. SPOILER ALERT: In one area, you find extremely large (seemingly dragon) bones... Who knows what that was before it died? I suppose we'll never know.

You have three classes: Melee, Ranged or Magic. There are many spells, swords (or even clubs or hammers or axes) and bows (or crossbows in the expansion pack) to collect, and a large amount of armor to follow.

Not to mention the brilliant voice acting and enchanting sound effects which if you played Dungeon Siege awhile ago shall capture your heart with nostalgia.

Dungeon Siege is overall an AMAZING game. The first playthrough you will find incredible since you won't know what to expect, then there's always the expansion. The only complaints I have is that the multiplayer is disabled, I wish there were more party members and it wasn't as linear (The secret locations and party members does get slightly limited, there are many side quests though too!)

The final verdict for Dungeon Siege is... A 8 out of 10. The game is incredible (a 10/10 for the first playthrough) but there are a few flaws that could keep someone from playing.

Until the next review, seeya!

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.

Good game, definatly a classic but alas steam letdown, multiplayer is disabled, and Legends of Aranna Expansion Pack is no where in sight.

This will fix some of the issues

Dungeon Siege is a pretty solid Action RPG in the vein of Diablo. Although it requires some coaxing to get functional on a modern OS it has aged remarkably well and mainly only suffers from somewhat wonky controls (which get worse when you've more party members to manage), a rather awkward camera, and some exception crashes; though in my case that last one plagued the bandit cave area so horribly that it effectively ended my campaign, so your mileage may vary.

Graphics: The graphics are still pretty passable and in some cases still quite beautiful, no complaints aside from character display UI issues in the inventory screen probably caused by playing on a higher resolution than the game was designed for. Throughout the game, a fairly dark, earthy theme is most-often employed.

Sound: The game features an excellent, genre-appropriate, soundtrack composed by Jeremy Soule (Morrowind, Oblivion, Knights of the Old Republic...) but has some weird sound effects issues wherein an item drop sound may play when no items are dropped. Some basic, often unconvincing, voice acting is employed for important characters.

Story: A pretty standard fantasy storyline that doesn't really stand out in any way, although it's not unbearable, it is very linear and can get boring pretty quickly, making it hard to play for extended periods of time. Characters are very basic, as seems very common amongst Action RPGs.

This reviewer gives Dungeon Siege: 7/10

Just played it for 14 hours straight on Windows 8.1. No bugs, no crashes, just an excellent Saturday of gaming.

Somewhere between Baldur's Gate and Diablo lies the awesomeness of Dungeon Siege.
This is one of those sadly under-rated classics which should be much better known, Give it a good shot and you'll see why.
I'll be the first to admit that it's pretty ugly, even by standards of the time, but that's OK. The story isn't as well executed as BG, but better Than most Dungeon bashers. Voice acting is minimal, but competent, just enough to give a little flavour and highlight major plot points.
What you get, though, is A HELL of a dungeon basher, Amazing atmosphere and tension a load of options for selecting your squad and what skills and equipment they take with them, and a horde of enemies more than capable of taking you down if you get sloppy. Watch every step, keep an ear out for ambient sounds which may be clues of a coming ambush, and don't rush in to grab loot unless you're sure your exit is clear!
RPG aspects are a bit like the Elder Scrolls series, you get better at what you do most, and the skills that go with that. Eventually your squad will be moulded to your play-style, although some party members for hire have clear advantages in one field or another.
If you like dungeon bashing RPGs and haven't tried this one, why not?
