Lackluster game mechanics and co-op playyngdr | Sept. 2, 2014 | See all yngdr's reviews »
Graphics are decent and provide one with a sense of involvement, however the ui and a few game mechanics are broken almost to a console feel. Sounds and voices are passable, but the multi-player experience has turned this ended this series. Hyped only to fall flat miserably. If you played DS 1 and II then be warned that 3 is flawed in comparison. If you buy it grab is on sale.

This game is not like previous Dungeon Siege installments. It is passable, for sure, yet if you are a fan of DS series it may feel wrong for you.
Game's story is interesting, thats a big pro for this game. There aren't many hack'n'slash with good story. Gameplay itself feels ok. You get two man team, some skills, lots of items to make your character tougher. I haven't tried playing coop so can't say about it, but when you play alone the game is quite fun. Major drawback can be the poor choice as to character classes. There are just three.
Graphics aren't really great. Just fine. Music is as it should be, emotional enough. Same for sounds. Voice acting wasn't really for my liking.
So, if you are a fan of Dungeon Siege series you might not like this one. If you're not, well, go ahead and try. It's a decent hack'n'slash

Long time fans of both Obsidian and Dungeon Hack & Loot-style games should have had something exciting to look forward to with Dungeon Siege III, but this sadly would not be the case. Dungeon Siege III is a passable attempt at giving a player a more story focused dungeon hack experience where you can fight monsters and loot gear to your heart's extent. However, saying that it gives a player (singular!) a passable dungeon hack experience, this does not go for a second player. Though the dungeon loot rpg subgenre really shines with cooperative multiplay, and this is also sadly where Dungeon Siege III embarassingly stumbles. Due to the increased focused on story, DSIII imposes weird restrictions on the multiplayer side of the game, making it actively unfun for any second player and rendering the game's promoted revival of cooperative play moot. Given the genre and the marketing push both promoting cooperative play, this failure to actually provide a good cooperative experience basically means that DSIII largely fails at one of its primary goals and never quite recovers from it.
Where does Dungeon Siege go?RakuPL_Markolf | May 14, 2014 | See all RakuPL_Markolf's reviews »
First Dungeon Siege was a revolutionary hack and slash game. 3D world, tons of stuff, issuing orders for companions with their own managable inventory etc. Then came second part which was not a revolution, but a small evolution and still a great game. But about Dungeon Siege 3 I can't say anything warmly. Almost totally console like controls and lack of climate (at least for me), bad mechanics. It makes it all very bad game, especially in h'n's genre.

This game is limited to 3 classes, but coop is still working so this could make for some great fun.
Unfortunately, this game lost a lot of points for 2 personal reasons:
1) Gender locking/Character Creation: One of my favorite parts of games is creating a character. My least favorite is gender locking. I'm a guy and I want to connect to my character and I can't do that as a female since I have no interest being a female. The only exception I have is if the story revolves around 1 character and the script and design is meant for a female lead (Tomb Raider.)
2) Limited Classes: Guns, Magic, and Melee. That's almost as bare minimum as you can get. Give me an archer, paladin, necromancer, ASSASSIN?! They tried to push all the voice-acted scenes and animations and left out the most important part of a game and it was not worth the sacrifice.
