Rated 3 out of 10 Where's the Dungeon Sieging at?
Wow. That is about all I can say to Square-Enix right now. How many flops are they going to keep delving out until the go bankrupt? There are no set items. It does have an auto-save feature that activates less than 10 times throughout the entire game. Is it to hard to write in a code where it saves every 15 minutes or so? The only game whose gotten it right so far is Two Worlds 2. There is no playthrough a second time with the same character. It seems like Square-Enix decided to rush out a Diablo-esque style game before Diablo 3 came out. I don't know. I'm tired of going on the faults of the game because there are plenty more. I keep getting excited for new games coming out to have them end up being the garbage that they are. A few years ago, you couldn't pick up a game without being amazed at everything in it. Now, it seems that the only original ideas are what sqeual can we do this time. Let's see if any new games coming out will stand up to the classics.

I played the demo for the game and put money down at Gamestop right away. I'm normally into games like Assassin's Creed, Batman: Arkham Asylum, and Brink, but the video looks cool and I really enjoyed the demo for Dungeon Siege III. I'm excited for the release date, but I'm hoping it doesn't get pushed back yet again. I like that you can choose between two camera views and that the dialouge reminds me of Mass Effect 2. You can choose how you want to talk to the person. If you want to know alot of information, you can ask a number of questions that will all be answered. If you just want to search for treasure and better weapons and armor, you can skip the questions. The fighting engine is also pretty cool. You can slice through your enemy quickly or deliver a punishing blow in a different stance, like a big leaguer's power swing. If several enemies are attacking, you can block their attempts and minimize damage. I can't wait for this one to come out. BTW, if you're thinking about getting it, if you pre-order you get boosted armor and weapons.

Well I've never had the pleasure of playing a Dungeon Siege game myself, I've heard nothing but good things about the franchise. From what I understand, Dungeon Siege 3 is a classic dungeon crawl with great graphics, a unique feel, and massive RPG elements. It also has online so you can play dungeons with your character in a party of friends and, I'm assuming offline local multiplayer as well. When making the Dragon Age series, Bioware was influenced by this series. If you're a fan of RPGs, Dragon Age 2, Diablo or KOTOR then I recommend buying this game. Since I've never played a Dungeon Siege game, I plan on buying it when the price drops and the due date isn't constantly pushed back. (If it were released back in March when it was due, a lot less people would have purchased Dragon Age 2).
Rated 2 out of 10 by HightechZen Ugh... Disappointing at best
I had high hopes for this game.... I just finished Dragons Age - both of them - and a huge RPG fan in general. This game was so boring, I am not sure why, but I just hated it. It did not captivate you at all, the story is not interesting, and it's progression in the 'story' is awkward at best. The whole thing was just a missed effort. It has an old-school feel to it, which is not inherently a bad thing, but, the gameplay was also too old-school. Actually, the old games were more fun. I don't mean to trash the hard work and efforts of the dev team that made this, nor the graphics team, it just seemed like they lacked direction. It could have been great fun with the engine used, if it was just overall designed from concept better. This is a rental, not a purchase.

This is going to be awesome. I have been a huge fan of the previous games on PC, and think its going to make a great system game. From what I heard, its not the same company making this game, but hopefully they will stick to the original gameplay ideas that made this game famous for, and even more importantly the multiplayer! (Preferrably local system or network play) I also want to add "Copy Cat" is probably not the best term to use, since this gameplay concept was also in the original version of Dungeon Siege released in 2002 and Dungeon Siege 2 released in 2005, dating prior to Dragon Age released in what, 2009? Not to mention 100% of games in some way, copy an idea from another game.

I played the first Dungeon Siege and liked it a lot. One thing on this game that I am looking forward to is the ability to play multiplayer without going online. I've always loved playing through action-RPG style games with friends(Baldur's Gate series being an excellent example). A lot of newer games are not set-up for this style gameplay, preferring to go single player only in offline, and multiplayer only available through online. Some of us like to play multiplayer with a room mate, or have friends come over to our house to play the game, and I appreciate the fact that they've incorporated that into this game. All-in-all, the game looks great and I can't wait for it to come out!

I have the Duneon Seige Series for my pc visually its graphics were ok but not spectacular. Ther gameplay and story is what drew me in. This game looks like it will have the total package and will be pleasing on my eyes as well. Also with the buzz of offline multiplayer I can add more pleasure to my entertainment. My girlfriend is also a gamer and we enjoy play titles such as Baldur's Gate and the champions series together. I like the fact that there are a few that are bringing back the add a friend option, So this will definately be a must buy for me. Honestly if you've never tried this type of game or just this title check this one out im sure it will be worth it.
Rated 0 out of 10 by Xeorost Great looking, classic gameplay.
While I have never played a Dungeon Siege game myself I am a huge fan of the gameplay style that the series uses. I am planning on picking up this game on the day it comes out myself, after looking over various previews and videos of the game in action and it's style I'm psyched to finally see a high quality game of this type come to the consoles. If you are into hack-n-slash games, such as Diablo or its many contemporaries then I would encourage you to look into this game, as it looks to be incredible. While everyone is touting the offline & online multiplayer elements you should also be aware that the game is 100% playable in single player as well.
Rated 7 out of 10 by dvdptr1 It's OK to waste some time..
This game is very enjoyable. It has a decent story line, the graphics are really quite good, and there seems to be enough combinations of abilities, players, weapons, and etc., to keep you coming back for more. The catch here is that you have to like hack-and-slash games. If you're looking for Fallout 3 with it's virtually infinite world to explore, then you probably won't like this. But if you were a Baulder's Gate, DnD: Heroes, or even Untold Legends: Dark Kingdom fan, there is no reason at all you shouldn't like this game too. Sometimes, a little mindless hack and slash dungeon-ing can be fun... And this is a decent version of it.
Rated 3 out of 10 by AllYourBases not worth buying
while this game had top of the line graphics and a great story line it is not remotely worth buying. it took me less than 2 days to beat. they have taken health potions out of the game replaceing it with time effect healthspells. however the biggest dissappointment was multiplayer. you are completely at your hosts mercy. you have extremely limited motion. your levels are effected by theirs. i have yet to find ANY of the additional 30% gameplay. while the join servers are glitchy at best. without an update this game is just frustrating as multiplayer. If you want a good hack and slash wait for a better game to come out.
