About the Game

It’s been a generation since you vanquished the evil that plagued the Land of Ehb, and now…a new menace has awakened. In Dungeon Siege II, the sequel to the best-selling RPG from Gas Powered Games, you will be called on to again wield sword and spell to save the world from a growing abomination many years in the making.
A thousand years ago, the crusaders of Azunai crossed swords with the legions of Zaramoth in the final battle of a century-long rebellion. As the tyrannical god Zaramoth struck the final blow through Azunai’s trembling shield, the earth shook. In that moment, the forces of magic were unchained, and both armies were consumed in a brilliant cataclysm that stretched for leagues across the Plain of Tears. Only a scarred wasteland remained as final testament to the First Age of Man.
And for a millennium, magic has continued to spread to the farthest corners of the world, freely flowing to any who would command it. But the tide of magic has begun to wane, heeding instead the call of an ancient legacy. From the Plain of Tears a new heir beckons, and with each day his strength grows. Consuming those who submit, eradicating those who resist. With none to oppose his ascendance, the circle will be complete, and an ancient age will begin anew.
What fate will befall the Second Age of Man? The time for judgment is nigh.

Oh man. This game. This ♥♥♥♥ING GAME.

44+ hours put into this monster. Most of my time was recorded "offline," so really it's more like 50-70+ hours, 100+ on the outside. And guess what? I'm only halfway through Veteran difficulty after spending god-knows-how-many hours trying to get through Mercenary. And time of completetion on Mercenary? Somewhere in the ballpark of 15+ hours for me at least, because holy ♥♥♥♥ I was grinding so hard and I enjoyed every. ♥♥♥♥ing. Second. Of it. Was still a grind, but it was a very fulfilling one, I'll admit. Yes, I was trying to kill mobs so I could get this one drop that would make or break my build, but when it finally DID appear...oh man, oh MAN did I feel like everything was worth it.

That should stand as a testament as to how damn addictive this game is, which is pretty damn good. Really. DIABLO(tm) is and always will be the king of Hack n' Slash Action RPGs, but this game gives the king a run for its money.

A classless, skill-tree based progression system is the star of this title, having built on the framework of the first title. Now, you can tweak your builds to your liking. Combat Mage that deals ♥♥♥♥tons of AoE damage? Go for it! Melee tank that uses greatswords for massive crits? Baby, you can do whatever you want~~! Ranged character that can snipe from halfway across the map? Yes, please! Nature Mage that can makes enemy projectiles tickle like they're nothing but feathers? Oh, darling, you know how to get my motor running~~~!

However, be warned! Multiclassing is nigh-on impossible, so take the game's advice to heart and stick to one class. Not that you can't do it, but it's ill-advised nonetheless.

Also revamped is the town system. Instead of just being a checkpoint, you actually have a *reason* to go back to town. You can sell-off your vendor trash a *lot* easier. You can portal back to town. You can buy that one sword that gives +5 cold damage and has a chance of proccing a massive blizzard from the merchant. Sure, it's pretty bare-bones compared to other games, but gawddamn this title needed this sort of system badly.

I know that a lot of Hack n' Slash Action RPGs already had this feature, and this was definitely missing from the first title. It was basically GPG realizing that they screwed up in that respect on the first title, so to see them rectify it is refreshing.


Overall, this title is amazing. It's $6.99 USD or your regional equivalent. Don't even wait for a sale. Get it now. You owe it to yourself.

I bought this game in a bundle with Dungeon Siege 1 and 3 and didn't expect DS2 to be my favorite. This brought be back to the old Baldur's Gate style games with enough differences to keep it engaging. I fully recommend this game.

“I hear you’re off to cause some trouble. I don’t suppose you’d care for the company of the best fighter on the island?”

An excellent squad-based action role-playing game experience that contains all of the best elements of its predecessor, and introduces novelties like the class based super powers. It is rounded out by smart combat mechanics and an impressive storyline.

Fun fact: You are the only one who can stop the evil reign of Chris Taylor in the secret pillow fighting chamber.

My rating system consists of six categories in descending order of importance:

- Atmosphere
- Characters
- Details
- Tactical demand
- Story
- Combat & Controls

Based on the performance each category will receive one of the following grading:

- S-Rank: excellent
- A-Rank: very good
- B-Rank: solid
- C-Rank: satisfactory
- D-Rank: inferior

If the S-Rank is awarded, a quote from the game or personal comment will be added as a token of my respect (in brackets).
--

Atmosphere: S-Rank

(Your thirst for destruction is powerful. You would impose your will on the world; you are not so different from Valdis. You could have joined with him and basked in the new Age of Zaramoth! That mistake will cost you your life. Now I will avenge my wizards.)

Characters: S-Rank

(Have you made your funeral plans? How should we bury you? Or maybe you’d like us to burn your corpse, as it is the Dryad custom. Personally I think we should put you out on the river in a flaming raft. That would be something!)

Details: S-Rank

(Do not forget about ‘columnarius sectorus’.)

Tactical demand: A-Rank

Story: S-Rank

(But unknown to either warrior the sword and the shield had destinies of their own. The sword shattered the shield and sparked the Great Cataclysm. The land split open and the souls of the warriors, ripped from their chests, rushed into the river of souls that flowed beneath the land; splintering it into a thousand lay lines. The shockwave was felt in every part of Aranna. Even the lives that were spared were changed forever. The stars shifted and the Second Age began.)

Combat & Controls: S-Rank

(You’ll only gain experience in a class by fighting with its associated weapon type. If you fight with a melee weapon, you will gain melee experience and if you fight with a combat magic spell, you’ll gain combat magic experience. It doesn’t get any simpler than that. Before you proceed, choose a class and stick with it. If you switch weapon types too much, you’ll become a weak jack of all trades and then those cursed Dryads will eat you for breakfast. Not that you wouldn’t deserve it, heh heh.)

There are no achievements to conquer.

It's hard to express just how much fun I had with this game. Really refined from the first entry in the series, and adds a lot of depth to character development. Managing a party instead of just one character allows you to experiement with several builds at once, and you'll unlock larger parties at higher difficulty levels. The structure of quests and sidequests often have you exploring areas you couldn't access earlier in the game, giving some good variety in where you'll be going and why.

Overall a very worthy dungeon crawler standing toe-to-toe with DIablo 2 or Titan Quest

I spent many hours playing this with multiple character builds before I got it on steam, lots of fun had. I bought the Dungeon Siege bundle x3 on steam expecting ease of use, functionality and no drama in getting it to work and sorting out CD keys and updates on multiple computers of my family...

Started game
Multiplayer disabled
Not cool.

I normally would give this a big thumbs up but the steam version has multiplayer disabled because the online servers are no longer in existence, the problem is that local/LAN has also been disabled along with that for no reason at all other than laziness I guess, because they just disabled the multiplayer menu button in the main menu.
Even when I played this by myself I used the multiplayer function so that I could use my characters when I wanted to play with friends and for certain features in the game host settings that were not in singleplayer.

So you are better off getting it somewhere else.
