Summary: Love this game and was excited to see it on sale, but found disappointment when I discovered that it did not include the "Legends of Arana" expansion pack, which has no digital version. Other than that a good buy and still an old favorite.
Summary: I chose three stars because although the game delivers its excellent graphics and game play, it still has some compatibility issues. So far they have been minor-such as freezing-and I have been able to get it going again. This is still one of the best role play game out there. Still, its issues just might be a problem for some systems. I might add, I have never played this game in multiplayer situation.
Summary: I really like this game. I've played it twice - years apart. This downloaded version has three problems in my opinion: 1. I had glitches in the map, where I was unable to progress further until I fixed them (I don't remember how I fixed them...) 2. It disables multiplayer 3. It disables the ending. Wth? You beat the last villain, and it just cuts back to the menu immediately. How disappointing.
Summary: I am an avid fan of Obsidian and consider Alpha Protocol and Fallout: NV to be masterpieces. DS3 is extremely competent. The combat is fun enough and it has an unprecedented amount of polish for an Obsidian game but ultimately it just lacks the soul of the other Obsidian games that have made me a fanboy.
Summary: Three friends and myself got this while it was on sale to play together. The way co-op works is like Gauntlet Legends, you all have to be on the same screen and the camera stretches a little bit for you. That works ok for console games, but a game where you're on your own pc it just feels bad. The gameplay is pretty good, and other than the terrible co-op camera I think it's a fun game.
Summary: I have started playing this game before its release, via its demo. Having played DS1 and 2 before, i was utterly disappointed with its gameplay mechanism. I had wanted a true DS game, not this piece of ****. Didn't preorder it, heck i even ignored it. Main cause: I didn't want to put my hard earned $ on a rubbish game. So i waited. Waited for the right moment to get this. Thus, came the sales.
Summary: I got this game when it was on sale. It's not the greatest game in the world, the game play is some what crap since it's really hard to control your camera and fight at the same time. However, as a mild form of entertainment for about 12-16 hours the game is fine. It's a dungeon crawl, there's not much to it. I think the horribly negative reviews are unwarranted. If you go in to the game like you go into watching an action movie it's fine.
Summary: Let me start with the plus side. This game is absolutely and entirely beautiful. The 3-D rendering is flawless and exquisite. The highly flexible camera angles also give you advantages in different combat situations. There is a large variety of weapons, armor and magical items available. (I'm not sure this is good. I found sorting through all of them and picking the best a bit bewildering at times.
