Summary: the expansion destroed the game because now ppl can invert the single players characters in the 39th lvls to the multiplayers gaming & creat gold AND VERY VERY WORTH ITEMS + in the expension there was barely bags fixing so that players can still wear 2handed sowrd with shield wich is very poor.
Summary: Before you consider this game you should consider that you cant convert your multiplayer characters from DS properly without incurring what is apparently a a known bug referred to as the "inn bug". Rather than explain that in length here let's just say its a showstopper and GPG has issued no fix for it. Its such a showstopper that it makes the game virtually unplayable. I'm amazed they are even allowed to continue carrying it on the shelves with such a major bug.
Summary: It's not much as an expansion pack, but it does have its merits. The combo classes are fun to work with and the reagent recipes make for a nice little scavenger hunt. The new campaign has a pretty basic plot and it's mostly just more of the same old striking and shooting and blasting. The monsters are very cool, however, and the campaign should entertain anyone who likes a good freak show.
Summary: What good is an expansion for an already broken game? Well, it can fix things. Or it can add more dumbness. "Broken World" does the latter. It changes nothing of the fundamental gameplay flaws of the main program, it adds only more stuff to NOT play with. I was so deeply disappointed with DS 2. No, i'm not talking of the graphics. They're ok. It's the gameplay, the balancing, the terrible, terrible savegame-system.
Summary: Dungeon siege 1 was a great game. Then they released the expansion - Legends of Aranna . Still ok. Then they released "Dungeon Siege 2" with the SAME graphics engine AGAIN. What started out looking nice is now years behind the curve. Basically, they've been using dungeon siege as a cash cow to provide money for the development of "Supreme commander". Those of us who actually liked Dungeon Siege have been short changed.
Summary: Don't let 'reissue' merchants bank on your lack of imagination. Buy something else. It's a mediocre all been done before bore feast. No I haven't bought the game but I've played it and struggled to stay awake. Anyone out there with an original idea for a game? I'm willing to try anything other than 'Whatever No. 2, 3 and 4'.
