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 ;)

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.

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.

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

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.

If you found this review helpful, please consider giving it a thumbs up. You can also find more reviews over at http://www.completingthebackloggroup.com/
