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 , :)

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 (You want every RPG).

When I was a little kid, Dungeon Siege was the first video game I played. This may cause some bias on this review, so that's a warning.

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 you can make all kinds of strategy and find all kinds of gear 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 bones... Who knows what that was before it died?

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 did I mention they amount of armour there is?

Not to mention the brilliant voice acting and enchanting sound effects.

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 but most you'll probably complete by mistake even if you don't accept it.)

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!

*sigh*
A decade ago, I played this game so much my grades in high school suffered.
When I saw that the game was on steam, I thought it would be an excellent opportunity to relive the memories of this excellent game.
I bought the game. I just didn't GET the game.
The game would probably run, if it weren't for crippling compatibility issues that result in random crashing. However, Steam, in their infinit wizdom, DISABLED THE MULTIPLAYER ENTIRELY. Seriously. Main menu. Click Multiplayer. You're greeted with an ugly (not skinned at all) and rude dialog box that simply says "DISABLED". That's it. Nothing.
I bought this game as part of a bundle with Dungeon Siege 2, and Dungeon Siege 3.
Dungeon Siege 2 multiplayer is ALSO DISABLED, and Dungeon Siege 3 isn't even a DS game, in my opinion. It might have done better if they gave it a different name and didn't try to step in the footsteps of such a great franchise.
Seriously, I wish Steam would have just let this entire franchise of games rest in peace. I honestly would take my money back and return these if that were an option. I feel like I did not get what I paid for.

Vincent Price's most helpful reviews: Dungeon Siege



Dungeon Siege is an oldschool adventure RPG with clicking, grinding, skill advancement, and more grinding. This game is inferior to the most masterfully crafted RPG's of old such as Baldurs Gate 1 and 2 in nearly every single respect except one.


You can play as a spooky scary skeleton, and for that, its character creation has no equal. 10/10, can recommend.

one of the better action rpg games of all time, however sadly it doesn't work without graphical glitches on windows 8(perhaps even 7 & vista) systems w/ switchable graphics.

This is a very nostalgic game for me. I remember this being the first RPG I played and LOVING it. My one issue is that they don't offer the expansion pack which includes a whole other campain and some extra functions that help make the gameplay a little easier. I would love it if steam added the expansion. I do admit the gameplay is a bit linear, but overall the environments that they create and the ways they manage to blend them together with no loading screens is amazing.

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☼

This 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.

[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.

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.
