Just finished this game and DLC with someone else. This game has an really really good storyline, good voice acting for all of the quests, good look along with tons of items to loot. The most eye catching aspect about this game is that as you play this game you have to make choices that effect how the story plays out. Usually the choices have to do with someone's fate or what action should be taken. Combined with the voice acting this is very impressive. Over all a really good RPG game, looking forward to the other DLC that is sure to come for this game.
The only down sides is that it is not what I would call an open world and in multi-player the "3 legged race" feel with the camera takes getting used too. But if you ignore those two things this is a game that is worth you time. Fully say to anyone who likes the screen shots to get this game.

Dungeon Siege series was a straight forward hack&slash from the start. Maybe too casual and easy sometimes, but enjoyable. Dungeon Siege 3 was made by Obsidian and the game doesn't know what it is. Is it hack&slash? Too many coversations that slows action down. So maybe cRPG? Nope, too many hacking and slashing. This game tried to be both at the same time and as a result isn't anything. Too bad that a good series probably dies like that.

Dungeon Siege III does not recover the origins of the series, but that reinvents itself leading to an action RPG "decaf". The changes in the game mechanics have only served to further simplify it, but nevertheless in the dialogue system itself that are more complex and allow create a mature and credible history. In addition, the PC version will note that this is a multiplatform game since control sometimes puzzling and the interface is too simple while uncomfortable.
Gameplay Character control is done by combining the keyboard (E for action, space to defend and roll on the ground) and mouse (left click to attack, right click to move). Sometimes this "mix" is a little confusing, but in the end you get used. The control is not so bad, but I think at this point there should have been to apply classical formulas that worked perfectly (see games like Sacred 2, Titan Quest ... and even DungeonSiege II) without further complications.
Technology The graphics engine is very solid, not detected drops in FPS and PC optimization is excellent. On the other hand the effects (fire, explosion) are nice and fluid and the animations of the characters and enemies. Of course this is not a technology "toe", but it is necessary in a game like this.
Graphics Environments become not photorealistic, but are nicely modeled and ambient. However, this section is unforgivable shortcomings: you are missing a world map that allows us to see our situation and be guided by the environment, the character customization is negligible (most objects have the same design and differ only in their statistics), which subtracts depth customization, especially taking into account that the game's characters are already preset from scratch.
Sound The soundtrack fulfills the role of play and not boring, like sound effects.
Innovation The "Achilles heel" of the game. Instead of innovating developers have simply give "snips" on the mechanics of a typical game hack'n slash, minus overall depth to the game. Perhaps it was a game casualitzation attempt, but clearly it could have been much more than other and have been an excellent game.

Obsidian entertainment designed this game in the lights of a fun sequel to dungeon siege 2. Coming from the lead designers over at Neverwinter Nights, you would think this game would be nothing short of amazing. Though it isn't. One thing that ties the deal for me is the fact that there are pre selected classes now. Pre selected classes and a sense of being locked into a linear path without one being noticeable. Dungeon Siege and Dungeon Siege 2 were very good dungeon crawlers that added a nice explorable open world adventure within the maps that were there. Although still enclosed in a small area, there were more things to explore. You never really knew where you had to go, you just went off on the path and by exploring, you found out where you needed to be. Which is something that Dungeon Siege 3 doesn't have. It is VERY linear and there isn't much exploration. Loot doesn't even change the way you look. The game is rather short, although it is a nice multiplayer experience. It still lacks in many ways. The other Dungeon Sieges gave you the ability to be a mage that carries a bow and still deals damage. It leveled you based on how efficient you were with the weapons. After spending many hours on Dungeon Siege 1, this game just comes to bring a false sense of hope. If they have plans on a 4th game, they need to do something better with it. Something that screams Dungeon Siege, because this is one of the worst sequels to such a fantastic game. Visually the game looks nice, and the game is still fun. But in lights of the older Dungeon Siege games, the hardcore fans may be disappointed. The game is fun for a short co-op experience as well, and the graphics are again, astonishing. The spell particles are amazing to watch and it is still a rather fun experience. There are just a few downsides based around the games main focus, exploration and looting.
Dungeon Siege series goes downhilllok0812 | June 5, 2013 | See all lok0812's reviews »
This is no longer the Dungeon Siege series that you used to play, it is nothing like the first two installment. In this one the game is very linear and locked you in a single character story of you choice. It no longer have that dungeon crawling for loots feel anymore. While graphic received an upgrade that didn't help much in terms of gameplay. The game is still very playable but just don't expect the same experience you had back when you played the first two. If you haven't played the first two then definitely give this action game a shot.
