I know there are a lot of people who don't like this because it is not very similar to the first games. I agree that it is far different but a great game in it's own right. It's more action combat than diablo style point and click like the first 2 and I actually enjoyed the new play style. I played through with the expansion in 3D on my 52" HDTV local co-op using 2 xbox360 controllers. It was EXCELLENT, so much fun to be had.
Good game to play with a friendlagendofdoom | Sept. 27, 2013 | See all lagendofdoom's reviews »
When I first played Dungeon Siege III I had the impression that I play a game which really reminds of "Diablo" which can be considered good and bad. I am not a fan of "Diablo" but I did enjoy playing Dungeon Siege III when I played with a friend, it is obvious that the game was built with concentrating on Coop. The story and characters are pretty much dull but every character is different from the other ( there are only 4 character which you can choose ). The game is very linear, the side missions are a dull and you will forget about story or the purpose of the characters in which clearly it isn't a good game for a single player ( especially because of the idiotic AI ), but nonetheless when playing with a friend the game becomes interesting fun and at times funny, you won't notice how the time will pass as you play with a friend, there aren't any stupid ally AI and you actually can pay attention to the character and story as you play with a friend or ignore it and just go with the side quests or the main quests, most likely you won't even know the difference between them. Eventually you will beat the game and will notice that for an RPG\H&S game it is really short and you will most likely won't ever play it again.

If you're expecting it to be like the first or second Dungeon Siege you will be disappointed, that's not to say the third installment is bad in anyway, to the contrary I found it too be a very enjoyable hack'n'slash loot fest with a interesting enough story to keep me coming back for more. It's definitely worth your time!

This game is not for everyone and many die hard Dungeon Siege fans will hate it. However, as a stand-alone game, it is rather enjoyable and easily addictive. The controller made this game very enjoyable with regards to a hack-and-slash dungeon crawler. It is easy to switch between powers and move around IF you have the controller. I would avoid the mouse and keyboard completely. I do not regret buying this game or using the controller to play it

Dungeon Siege 3 is a game what I hated first, mostly because of the weirdo controls, but by time, as I got used to it, it is became a very-very enjoyable game. With it's great atmosphere it sucks you so easily. The world is well detailed, the story, which is building from the usual fantasy cliches, is well told and has enough twists to keep you entertained until the very end. Dungeon Siege 3 is relatively long game, which has a very good consequence system, similar to Dragon Age: Origins. Here, in the end you'll truly see the result of your game descisions. The game itself is relatively long one. According to Steam it took me 24 hours to beat all the missions, along with the 4-5 hours long DLC, which is a must for this game as it's easily one of the best DLCs on the RPG market, has a similar content and quality like Titan Quest: Immortal Throne. Dungeon Siege 3 is not a brainless hack and slash game, but during many battles, especially during the DLC missions you have to adapt and use different strategies to defeat the enemy. The game itself is beautiful, even by today's standards. You can't create your own character, but the four characters and their skills are great for this game, especially as each four of them will be part of the story and will be your party member by time regardless which character you chose as your main character.
Dungeon Siege 3 is a great game for casual and RPG fans alike. It's not the Dungeon Siege you may know as it's quite different than DS1 or 2, but if you give a chance for this game, if you let it to suck you with it's atmosphere and good storytelling, you'll enjoy the war against Jayne Kassynder and her dreaded army, and the revelations you'll make as the member of the 10th legion.
