Dungeon Siege III
This Isn't As Bad As They Say!!
I can't say that I understand all of the hareful reviews. This is actually one of the best dungeon crawler, action RPG games that I have played. Sure the voice acting could be better, but the storyline, music, characters, and the gameplay are all great. The four different characters you can play through as adds an element of replayability. The graphics are pretty good too. Seriously, give this game a chance. It's much better than they say.
Fun, but no replayability
Being a huge fan of dungeon crawlers, I thought I'd give this game a try. I'll start off with the good. The graphics and voice acting in this game were great, and the story was very interesting, even as basic as it was. Your character did feel like it could reflect off of you in some ways, which is good in a dungeon crawling rpg like this. The scenery in this game was also beautiful from a crawling-familiar standpoint. In a sense, the game had a lot going for it.
Now for the bad. The story was fun, but once you beat it their really is no desire to go back and play it again with the other characters. It just would be way to repetitive. This really gives the game no re playability, and eventually it will just lay around in a forgotten game box unless you decide to sell it/trade it in with no real connection to the game. The multi-player was awful. You had no impact on the other users campaign experience, and your partner(s) just felt like you were playing with an NPC. Overall character customization was awful as well. Sure, you could customize him/her in some ways and make him/her feel your own, but only to a very limited extent. This really led the game to be a very linear plot, which again led to it having zero re playability. I would recommend this game to people who like dungeon crawlers, and are willing to just play it just to play knowing that it will shortly not be entertaining. This game really had a lot of potential, but far to much of it was rushed which really reflected on the game in the long run.
Although it's no Diablo 3, game play, music, and art style are still enjoyable. Plus there's an DLC coming soon...
This game was terrible. The graphics are great and the voice actors were good too, but the gameplay was incredibly boring! The story line was alright, but there wasn't enough there to keep us interested.
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.
VERY BAD DONT WAIST YOUR MONEY
very bad, boring its like a ps1 game with a little bit better graphics. no point in it no exploration just narrow path and little options in forming your character and limits what u can be
DON'T DO IT
I just picked it up hopefull of a do op game night with a friend and to our horrid dismay The game started off disappointing right off the start. only 4 chars to choose from and the camera is just terrible over head and the combat system was bland and limited right off the start. Worst waste of money I have ever spent.
It was good, but I wish there was more
I just got done playing Dungeon Siege 3. Overall it was a good game but there were definately some things left to be desired. I felt like in a way the game play should've been longer, the items that you acquired a bit better and for some reason the camera movements in the game irriated me, especially with the fact you couldn't really look up. I would probably play it again and I do look forward to them coming out with a Dungeon Siege 4
Quickest game you can beat!
I liked the game at first but that's until it ended in four hours. It took me three days to beat it with every character and I wasn't even playing but a fewer hours here and there. If you don't have anything to do this is the game that you should get. DO NOT BUY THIS GAME JUST RENT IT!
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.
