I adore this game. My first Dungeone siege Game was Dungeon siege II and I can see similar gameplay when I play the first one. First time I played I could see where the second game got their mechanics and while this game has a more simplistic version of the second games levelling system I love it!! My first time playing I found it charming but as I contine to play the charm has turned into respect for the team that made the game and love for the game itself. I might be a little biased to my series as the dungeon sige series was one of my first RPG's but 10/10!!

Classic Dungeon Siege. Looks kinda' ugly now, but still entertains. Too bad the expansion is not available on Steam.

Dungeon Siege was a wonderful Gas Powered Games ARPG released in the early 2000's notable for its fully 3D environments, party based combat, and wonderful fantasy ambience. The game was incredibly polished for the time and still holds up today. A few small Win7 compatability issues remain, but otherwise still a blast to play. Beware though, the Steam versions of DS don't have the expansion packs.

Crap gameplay, crap graphics, and monotonous combat system make this game great for when you have something ese to do at the same time. However, I play for nostalgia. So many hours as a child playing this game and getting no-where because I used no strategy. Now I've started I really aught to finish it too.

Listen i like a good RPG Squad tatic based game as the next guy, but I'm sorry this game is just too old! sound effects not good if your running windows 8.0 i doubt it'll work, you can't teleport back to shop controls are hard, your companions suck, and its long as hell. If your in for fun not for u its like playing hardcore all the way. If you like outrageous prices in shop for sucky items and over a million enamies per level that can easily kill your guys go for it!

[My steam total is much less than I've actually played since you can play offline without Steam connection.]

Fun game from 2002. I started as a huge Diablo 2 fan. I'm catching up and enjoying the era of now-cheap RPG/action games before upgrading my system to run more modern games. Just so I don't spend before I really need to. (currently a Radeon X-600) This includes the Dungeon Siege series + Fallout, Torment, Torchlight 1/2, Baldur's Gate, Titan Quest, Morrowind, Oblivion ...before hitting Skyrim, D3, etc. Bottom line: In many ways, this fits in the older era. -- So, those are your ganeral Action/RPG + hack/slash comparisons.

** Graphics: It's 3-D. Steam graphics are representative.

** Team: You can manage 8 characters drawn from three general classes from which you can customize: Melee, ranged, mage. Two kids of mages: Combat, Nature. Former is offensive; the latter mainly includes healing spells, etc. Buffs and spell selection are typical.

** Multiplayer: No multiplayer anymore.

** Loot: Regular items for purchase and souped up loot (some has tradeoffs). One of your 8 chars can be a moving mule: non fighting with 3 times inventory. ... One /very/ cool minor feature is casting a "transmute" spell that turns items into gold on the spot at a fraction of the value. Thus, there's no need to leave loot unless you want to leave mapping markers or don't want to bother with the super-cheap stuff. Obviously, take the valuable stuff, right? :)

** Overview of Attributes with examples: 3 areas: Strength (perks: melee combat damage, eventually wear better armor), Dex (ranged damage), Intel (mana pool, spell damage, mage armor).

** Character development is actually more complex than usual. Use a melee weapon, you build strength. -- but you also gain a slight boost in dex and a very slight intel boost. Reverse is true. This enables your ranged character to VERY gradually build strength for slightly better armor. Although you delay advanced specializion perks, I like a little flexibility.

** Replayability? Unsure at this point since I haven't completed it. Linear, but you can play with different team balances. Right now, I have me, 3 melee, 2 ranged, 1 mage (nature for healing), 1 mule. (I myself am a hybrid fighter/mage (combat) who doesn't use bows to get ranged. You meet a few people along the way that want to join you or want gold to join you. Now that I have lots of gold, I plan to replace a melee with a combat mage. Upgrade as available.

** Monsters: Once you clear an area, the monsters don't respawn. I expect that next game, they'll be in the same place.

** Other: You can remap keys like a bandit. Haven't even explored all the options. Raise/lower difficulty. Standard quests. Quick save along the way. Secret areas that aren't easy to find without advice? You can get an overview map, but it does NOT show caves since they're underground. Sometimes unlit areas aren't obvious, both of which are authentic and nice touches. I'll investigate mods later, if they exist.

** Advice: If you like the standard old ARPG like the above, get this game. Cheap Steam bundles are occasionally available at humblebundle, gamersgate, bundlestar, etc. Probably will hit gog soon if you want no DRM. Thanks for reading.

Even many years have been passed, it's still the most tactical kind alike hack n' slash western RPG I've ever played.

A great game and a wonderfull flash to the past. Nostalgia aside a very good game with awesome gameplay. With a range of different companions along with a purchable mule to slave around your gear. If you like RPG's or if you dont, do yourself a favor and go ahead and buy it.
☼Steam usually does a goood job but they have yet to impress me as they have removed multiplayer along with the DLC☼
~Multiplayer Fix - Launch Settings, type zonematch=true BAM DONE XD~

This game is a really good game. I would easily recommend this game to those who haven't played it before, but you should note that this version of the game does not include its expansion, and its multiplayer was disabled. You can find a way around the multiplayer problem, but I would buy this game on Ebay or Amazon if I wanted the full experience.

One of the greatest RPG games I've ever played. Still to this day, I'm impressed just by how fluid and amazing the world is. Love it and it's one of my favourite games.

Great game! Until the ending when you kill the final boss and the game crashes before you look at any of the equiptment he dropped. You cant even read the dialogue at the end of the game cause the game just goes straight to the main menu! I definitly think this kind of wrecks the game and I woudnt recommend it because a game is as good as its final ending, and with no ending its kind of crap

A classic. Nice to see it on Steam for those of us old enough to have bought it on CD back in the day. Especially since the CD Version has issues running on modern Windows. I have no issues running it from Steam on Windows 7 64-Bit.

Decent ARPG, fun hack and slash combat in which you control a party of multiple people a bit like Balders Gate and kind of like KOTOR, pretty nice visuals too. For £4.99 this game is a good buy.
