"It may not be the Dungeon Siege you remember, but this stunning, story-driven co-op dungeon crawler is entertaining just the same." - PCGamer.com
"It's a modernised take on dungeon crawling that brings a few new ideas to the series." - Videogamer.com

Dungeon Siege III overall feels like a decent game in the ARPG genre, graphically it's pleasing, the mechanics aren't bad, it's a hack and slash ARPG as you've seen in the past, what makes it somewhat of a lackluster title is the longevity it provides without any actual substance, I put around maybe 7 hours into it? The story progresses and it's not horrible but the lack of advancement in mechanics and such is where Dungeon Siege III really falls off from being a superb ARPG if it's on sale and you don't mind progression feeling a bit grind based in a decently immersive ARPG, try it out.
I actually played through this game, because...i don't even know why. The battles are decent, and it can be hard I guess, but at the same time, this game does everything wrong. It wants to be coop, yet my AI partner is just as useful as a human would be, which is not much, except when i screw up, and need to be resurrected. This means there is no teamwork needed at coop, and no stakes at single, since you're revived almost always if you fail. The story is fine....i think. I can only remember that the hot witch or alchemist or something was again my characters sister secretly(of course...) not that it matters anyway. There is a dialog system, but it's pretty useless. It's as interactive as the title screen of a DVD, plus you tend to skip most of the talking anyway after a while, since every mission involves going somewhere, and pressing left click until everyone is dead who isn't you or your partner. The game isn't horrible, but it's not fun either. I only recommend it for someone who has two kids, and a single PC, that can run this, so they can play, while daddy is writing reviews on the laptop for GMG ;)
I bought this game to play with my friend with co-op, which was a mistake. When we finally got co-op to work, we found out the progress is tied to the host player, which isn't a bad thing by itself, but coupled with both players being locked to the screen it becomes a nightmare. In this age of gaming, there is no reason for co-op games, especially online co-op games to force both players to stay within the same screen-space. It's very annoying. On top of that all the items for the 2nd players are stored in the host's inventory, so if you stop playing and you friend continues on, he could accidentally sell your epic loot you got and when you join back you won't have anything to use. The gameplay itself is very lackluster. It's slow paced and clunky. The story didn't leave any impact on me. The graphics felt generic. Nothing about this game stood out for me, other than the annoying co-op system. It may be a decent game for playing solo, but be warned. If you play co-op with your friend hosting, your progress is tied to your friend. So you will not be able to play solo unless you start new.
The game graphics are good, the history is stand alone, so you no need to play previous one to understand it. Game play is cool, and tho it has limited character creation is still worth playing, animations are well done, graphics decent.. soundtrack and voice acting is good. Lastly keep in mind that you can download a FREE DEMO at steam store page, so I would strongly recommend you to try that out before deciding to buy the game. Have Fun!
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.
