About This 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.

The Game is great, but the WHOLE multiplayerpart is disabled. Not only the Gamespy part for internetplay but also the LAN part. If you want to play online anyways then have a look at this Guide:
http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=164234533
and then download GameRanger (www.gameranger.com), copy the whole DS2 folder from steam to anywhere and add it under Edit->Options. Click Host Game and wait for People to join. Start and thats it ... :D

This game, though not first person and not quite as advanced as some rpgs like Skyrim, is truly the best RPG ever made. Excellent character skill trees to make truly unique characters. This game is just so much fun that once you start you can't help but play it all three times through...

If you consider yourself a fan of rpg, games like Sacred or Diablo, or even a PC gamer in general, you should think otherwise until you have played this game at least once in your life! Speaking of which, if you are any of those, chances are you'll LOVE this game!

Do not buy this game on Steam. Yes it is a very good game and one of my eternal favorites in the rpg genre. Except for one problem, the Steam version has no multiplayer. Yes the servers are disabled and everyone expected that but the issue is that they disabled the entire multiplayer function; including LAN.

Just put it to rest after a lost weekend of it. I like it. I am a story person and as such I order my DSs 2>3>1. 1 didnt do it for me: I never finished. 3 was good although in retrospect having played it before 2 I realize it was short and mildly less absorbing than 2.
2:
positives:
-story often engrossing
-raising my pet to adulthood by feeding it swords, armor and accessories was delightful
-at least 50% of the banter was charming, voice acting was generally good
-pretty landscapes
-plenty of play hours per dollar
-important villain dissolves into (what looks like) black feathers at his demise; I approved.
-sometimes button mashing and the resultant monster dismemberment just hits the spot.
negatives:
-grind, mountains of creatures to fight and fight and fight to excess. Sometimes I began to wonder if the story would ever resume
-with so many enemies piled on each other in their eagerness to finish me off on the detailed background and smeared with the varied colors of lightning, fire, death and ice it often was difficult to see who was living and who was dead.

You get way more in game than what you pay for, it's fun and very enjoyable. The story is really enticing you will find yourself actually konwing the areas and the name of the characters also there is a huge amount of lore involved in the game. There is a specific feature in the game which is that you have to type in your spells in a pedestal by using your keys and it will grant you the buffs, I found that pretty neat feature in the game there is also the characters that are involved in your trip eachone has a specific personality according to their race which is another great feature to have a game that this cheap not to mention the loot and the dungeon crawling is fun and rewarding mostly because there are tons of secrets and areas to explore.

I would recummend this game to anyone who loves a good singleplayer rpg, although the disc version has multiplayer you can find mods that re-enable multiplayer for the steam version, that is the only fret I have.

To start, DS was a decently cool game. Basically, it was 3D Diablo 2 with a party. The graphics were awesome and there were seamless transitions into the underground/dungeons, you only loaded initially and using teleports.

However, this Steam release has two extremely deal-breaking drawbacks. The first is that the expansion pack is NOT INCLUDED. Unlike games like Age of Empires 2, where they incorporated the expansion into the vanilla game itself and made an entirely new one, this game does not even include the expansion, nor is it available for purchase as DLC. Thanks to the wonderful world of licensing, it's gone forever.

The second issue is that MULTIPLAYER IS DISABLED. This is because the legacy DS2 servers were hosted by GameSpy, which no longer exists (right? I thought the spyware would make them last forever!), and it seems that GasPowered did not believe this release would not generate enough money to justify a server of their own. What this means for you is that YOU WILL BE UNABLE TO EVEN CREATE LAN GAMES. It is conceivably possible to violate the Steam EULA to replace the .exe file with an old no-cd replacement and modify your hosts to not try to check in with GameSpy, but you will still run into This Bug. And so far, no one has found any solution to this problem, so in all likelihood, you will be playing in single player. This is really disappointing because, at least this problem, would have been a super easy fix on GP's part.

That said, this does not make the game unplayable if you want to do single player again, or if you've never played it before, you can have the single player vanilla experience for only $6.99, which is not too bad for a game with this much content. But for me, personally, I feel it's a disappointment and false advertising.

One of the best RPGs I've ever played. Very user friendly, tells a nice story thought grants you only a minor need for replayability.

Not only was this game one of the most played games in my childhood but still even one of my most played and favorite games even now. I have made characters that I gave backstorys for and even tried making this in a RPG maker. SIMPLY PERFECT!

Truly representative of the party based RPG genre, Dungeon Siege allows you to build your party in a myriad of ways to represent the characters that you want. Want to be a spellslinging archer who can dodge out of the way of attacks in melee? You can do it. Want to be a master of all weapons? you can do it. Want to be a true mage, master of every discipline? You can do it. Want to be a warrior that augments his own prowess with buffs and summoned companions or even normal animal companions? You can do that too.

Experience freedom alongside an interesting story and more threats than you know what to do with.

The only thing I can complain about with this game is there is a tad too much combat, making finishing it a significant investment of time. Especially if you want to make cross discipline warriors so you need to find all the enemies so you can train.

My first RPG after the Might&Magic series and Diablo series. I loved this game the first time I played it and I still love this game. I have had this game since the year it first came out in stores and was ecstatic when it came out on steam!! I play many different ways with different characters. Experimenting with allies and pets and skills is what keep me pouring hours into the game. there is replayability with this game as the dialog of certain characters is worth building different parties. I think this is one of those games that will have me hooked to the day I die XD brilliant!! 10/10 Mate!

Immersion at its finest. What DS 1 should have been. Improved what the 1st game had to offer in basically every aspect. It is indeed a huge timesink but thats what translates to great RPG's. To me it is one of those rare timeless masterpieces.

The game begins pretty cool. You are part of an invasion force working for the bad guys. Now that is awesome! I thought the developers came up with an interesting story, where you are not saving the world like in EVERY other Rpg.

But immidiately after the introduction you get captured by gay elves. And from then on you are working for the ♥♥♥♥ing elves. Was a bit disappointed by that.

It is still a good game, though I didn´t like it as much as the first Dungeon Siege. Graphics and gameplay are almost the same in both titles. So if you have the choice of getting DS1 or DS2, better choose the first.

DO NOT BUY THIS GAME ON STEAM!

- .exe is different from the original, because of this mods and the modding SDK will not work
- multiplayer is disabled
- there is no integration at all with steam
- 50% of the time it won't even start a game because of new graphics card
- the game has a 4:3 resolution which mean it won't work on modern monitors (which are pretty much all widescreen)

Better throw the 6$ in a fire, will be a better use...
