Starts out promising but disappoints in the end

Amy Wilson, Amazon
8 March 2004
  • Summary: The shortest summary I can offer is, when the game was done, I was EXTREMELY disappointed. All you do in this game is fight monsters while walking down a fixed path (never so much as even a major crossroads for travel choices) and collecting way more items than you ever need. Oh, plus you kill a couple big monsters, including one at the end. The story is weak, and its lack of depth makes it pretty much impossible to immerse yourself for very long.

Disappointing!

Shawn Smith "Zaklog the Critical", Amazon
17 April 2002
  • Summary: As many others, I had been waiting for long to play this game. I really thought I would love it...but I dont. Lets get to the point: This game looks great. My only complaints are the restricted camera movements and zoom, but they are not a problem. Sound is ok, and the music is very good. The real problem of the game is the extremely repetitive gameplay. You simply have to kill thousands of monsters, collect loot and sell part of that loot. There is almost no story.

A dire excuse for a game

shaneo632, Dooyoo

  • Excerpt: Dungeon Siege is the perfect example of a game that is all style and no substance; it was hugely hyped before its release but sadly managed to disappoint through a depressing lack of depth. It's not hard to please fans of the fantasy genre but this one fails spectacularly through its hugely clunky gameplay that the makers have tried to mask with some lush visuals. And indeed, what stellar visuals they are.

Why do they ruin a goodPC game? ....Console port:(

Mahoro, Play.com
15 June 2004
  • Conclusion: I played DS3 for about 2hours and the game is nothing like the two originals. Yet again another good PC game ruined by the console port. I just don't understand why they can be happy with a finished product that is this poor compared to previous versions. Controls are terrible you might as well play with a X360 pad because its just not Mouse/Keyboard friendly. Character models are old and outdated and the voice overs are trash.

A tedious no brainer

Rolltide, Amazon
31 May 2003
  • Summary: I bought the game cos the storyline sounded intriguing. Your character starts out as a farmer, with minimal fighting skills, who is sent off on a no. of (small) quests which involve, for at least 90% of the time, fighting and killing different kinds of monsters/animals/beings (trolls, krugs, gargoyles, swamp witches, hydracks, ice archers, spider droves, to name a few), In the process, depending on your choice of weapons, your character gets upgraded in his/her...

Great graphics, poor game

"therealsintek", Amazon
23 March 2003
  • Summary: When I first loaded up this game, I was wowed by the beautiful opening graphical sequence. The landscapes, characters, buildings, and enemies are all wonderfully rendered. Many of the CG vistas are breathtaking, most notably, a bridge over a deep chasm at the beginning of the game. I have to give Microsoft credit for an excellent job on the visual aspect of this game. Sadly, the graphics are about all Dungeon Siege has going for it.

User Review

sharrowing, Dooyoo

  • Excerpt: The best description I have seen of Dungeon Seige is "an RPG for people who don't like RPGs", and I think that's the major problem I have with this game. I do like RPGs. I loved the Infinity Engine games like the Baldur's Gate series on the PC, and I even enjoyed Skies of Arcadia on the Dreamcast.
  • Cons: "Lacking in story"

Carino se è il primo gioco fantasy per voi

sampei80, Ciao
16 March 2005
  • Excerpt: ...che conosco già da tempo, Dungeon Siege mi aveva colpito all'inizio per la cura di certi dettagli, se avete già giocato a giochi fantasy di ruolo, avrete sempre visto il problema delle pozioni, che se le prendevi, sprecavi l'intera boccietta e non ti rimaneva quello che avanzavi. Ebbene con Dungeon Siege questo non succede, le boccette si consumano solo per quello che effettivamente vengono usate, cosa molto comoda. In quanto a grafica è carino, ...
  • Pros: non si spreacano pozioniiiiiiii

Vraiment décevant

Amazon
11 August 2004
  • Summary: Un jeu joli sur l'affiche très moyen en vérité. D'abord les classes sont vraiment trop déséquilibrées, un guerrier tuera une douzaine de monstre à lui seul là où un magicien se fera tuer environ trente fois dans le jeu. Sinon Dungeon siege reste extrêmement linéaire et vous avait l'impression d'avoir tout vu après une demi heure.
