Dungeon Siege: Legends of Aranna (PC): A really enjoyable fantasy RPG
27 June 2012
Summary: This is my favourite pc game. Dungeon Siege is great! I only managed to get my hands on it after both my Dad and brother had completed it and finally let me have a go. It is set in a mythical land where the people have become over run by magical beasts and it is your job to defeat them and so you put together a group of followers along the way to help you.
Pros: Lots of game play
Cons: Not sure if it is compatible with all computers...
Summary: This was the best RPG for the PC of 2002-2003. The graphics are nothing but astounding (back in 2002). The game has a unique gameplay style and scoring that just fits with the game overall. Its lush environments are extremly detailed and there are absolutely no loading times throughout the game. Dungeon Siege is more of a Hack-&-Slash RPG rather than a story based RPG.
Excerpt: "Following the success of dungeon siege the expansion pack came out with the promise of an even longer campaign. The story of the expansion is a lot similar to that of the original and doenst really stand out. However its te gameplay element which truy shines. Possibly a masterpiece of a RPG game this allows you to have up between 1-8 characters as you battle your way through enemies, hoard treasure, solve quests and upgrade characters. Like the previous ...
Pros: Original game included, long gameplay, no loading times, good variety
Cons: Expect to take breaks from it unless your a true RPG hardcore fan
Summary: This is an action cRPG that came out after DIABLO II and just before NEVERWINTER NIGHTS. And it blew both of them out of the water! Not as deep as NWN, yet the story engaged you enough to make it more than a hack'n'slash. Not as dark as DIABLO II, yet blood fever will take hold of you once in battle. A number of innovative ideas made DUNGEON SIEGE a unique experience: the cinematic perspective, the original characters (who thought up ..
Conclusion: Dungeon Siege is an excellent game and Legends of Aranna adds more to the adventure. Good item additions keep gameplay fresh and new lands offer many more creatures. However, it only took me several hours to complete. It would have been nicer to have had longer gameplay. Overall a good expansion to an already great game!
Conclusion: I bought this at Â£30 when it came out and I can still have fun playing it now and at a price as low as this you can't go wrong. The game has a really deep Storyline and will take you quite a lot of playing it to finish the game, never mind the expansion aswell. Not to mention the Multi-Player, this was one of the most fun Multi-Player experiences I ever had back when it was popular, I'm not sure how full it will be now but i'm almost certain there will be people playing...
Conclusion: Legends of Aranna builds on the popular Dungeon Siege game and adds more of everything to it. Unlike most expansion campaigns which can be short, this one is long and set over a vast array of environments keeping you entertained from the start. It also features new weapons, armours, quests and a new race (half-giant) thoughtout the game.
Excerpt: "I am not even sure I can write a decent game review. But here goes anyway! If anyone asks me I say "I don't play games, on my computer" but this one got me hooked quite quickly. I played the original version and because of little time it took me several months to finish. The one I am reviewing today is the add on, called Legends of Aranna, which I did enjoy even more. It can be bought for $16.99 on Amazon at the moment. I can't work out exactly ...
Excerpt: "...solidly built expansion pack for Dungeon Siege. It contains a new map, a few new animals and one or two new features, but there's nothing fundamentally different about it, which is a disappointment, considering the price. You do get the original Dungeon Siege with it as well, which makes it more worth the money if you haven't already got it, but if you have, you feel like you are wasting your money buying something you've already paid for once. The ...
Pros: Fun to play, great graphics
Cons: Overpriced expansion pack . Little in the way of anything new .
