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!

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

A nice rpg. First one to use the pack mule concept. A good Britan/Roman ruin feel. Well worth the purchase even though now it's a bit dated.

Awesome old school rpg , best part is that the steam version is windows 7 compatible :) unlike my old cd copy which kept telling me that win 7 hated running it .
The price at the moment is pretty good too , at only $7.00 ,
Heaps of quests to under take , the option to choose who you want in your party during the game makes this a must have for old school gamers and new comers too .
What more can i say about this game lol .... except just go out and buy it , :)

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.

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.

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

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.

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.

-Humble farmer ^^
