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.

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.
