Summary: It has no relationship with its forebearers. It is gloomy dark. The controls are awkward. Weapons, their storage and usage were not easy. It was a bore for the short time I played it. I loved the other DS games.
Summary: 3 days on and still cant get it to work. Steam isnt working,the game dosnt work.we have tried EVERYTHING we've been told to do, and Nothing.Will never get another game that has to have steam to work
Summary: This is not Dungeon Siege! The world is pretty much closed and you follow a predefined path. The world is not open like the other two Dungeon Siege games. It is pretty much linear. It did not come with a manual. The site I was told I could download the manual, [...] gave me a 403 forbidden error. I even tried at Square Enix's site and got and error.
Summary: Having loved the previous Dungeon Siege I really wanted to give this game a chance even though reading the bad reviews online. Unfortunately I have to agree this game is simply useless. And not because it's not entertaining, or it's not up to the previous games. It's because you simply cannot even play with it! I purchased the game on a DVD for a reason - so I don't need to download it as I have very limited Internet access.
product sucks and is a let down, can find better games

Summary: First must be online to install. second steam tracks how much you play. game play is very lacking. no customizing char, you have 4 to pick from. graphics are very dated. overall DS2 was way better- this game is a fail!
NOT for Dungeon Siege fans or PC gamers in general!

Summary: I am a Dungeon Siege fan through and through. I am also a PC gamer, not a console gamer. DS 3 is neither a Dungeon Siege game or a PC game. When I buy an RPG for PC I expect an engaging, immersive world with highly customizable characters and equipment that can be used to explore unique areas with parties of at least 4 or more heroes/henchmen. This game has NONE of that. It is obviously an attempt to release an RPG simultaneously on both the PC and console.
Summary: There's an old saying, "If it ain't broke, don't fix it". Dungeon Siege 1 was brilliant in that it was a simple hack and slash game, with tons of loot in an open world (as in it didn't feel cramped and completely linear). Character customization was through the roof. Game play could last for days, weeks, months... hell I still play it from time to time.
Summary: So.. fans of Dungeon Siege will probably notice a few things in common with the series. That is... they share the first two words of the title and a few references to Stonebridge and the kingdom of Ehb within the game.. Like others have mentioned, this game was clearly designed for the console and ported to the PC as an afterthought. The controls are horrid and from the very limited and basic options menu, there just doesn't seem to be any way to customize them at all.
