Dungeon Siege (PC): The original Diablo Clone

ariochish, Dooyoo
11 September 2010
  • Summary: Dungeon Siege is a decent game but has not aged well. Released in the early two thousands it is an adventure based role-playing game. It is basically a clone of Blizzard's original Diablo game and does not quite make the same grade. There are plenty of quests and large map areas to be explored as well as countless monsters to kill.
  • Pros: Decent gameplay but not fantastic
  • Cons: Dated gameplay and grahics

It's good, and it's not French (yet)

  • Summary: Dungeon Siege: Cons: - Fixed amount of opportunites (monsters & gold). - Blocky magic. - Wanted more terrain interaction. - Poor camera shots in close quarters. - Monsters that ambush or pop out of mid air is cheesy. -And most important reason I gave it a 3, Multiplayer games: Anytime anyone joins, the entire game takes about a minute to stop and load people up. Super annoying unless you lock the game down before starting. Pros: - Pauseability.

If You Still Enjoy the Game After the 5,856th Goblin Death..

Chris, Amazon
17 January 2004
  • Summary: I was never a big fan of the popular Diablo series. I was even offended when the game referred to itself as an RPG when I thought it was nothing more than hack and slash repetitiveness. So when Dungeon Siege was released with the promises of being a beautifully rendered 3-D Diablo clone, I didn't order this baby as soon as it was released even though it did have some impressive screenshots.

Solid game with (overly) simplistic gameplay

Kevin S. Dickens, Amazon

  • Summary: I remember waiting with baited breath for the release of Dungeon Siege. Next to Freedom Force, this game is the only PC game in the first half of the year that really got me excited. So was I disappointed or did the game meet my standards? Well, this game has actually confused me as the awe inspiring graphics and sound keep me playing while the gameplay is so mindless that I'm not really playing anything.

  • Conclusion: well the games good for its time and had brilliant online but do not buy it, since zone match has disapeered u cannot play it online and the only way to get full enjoyment out of this is to play it on multiplayer.

Fun game, but not what I expected

Matt Listi "jml6715", Amazon
26 June 2003
  • Summary: After reading other reviews I decided to give Dungeon Siege a try. I was amazed with the graphics and initial game play. Is very entertaining to equip your party with the most powerful armor. Like I said it is a fun and nice game. But it lacks something. It is very linear and very simple to complete. There are no side quests which is what makes RPG games fun. I was very dissapointed when I defeated the final boss and it was over. I said "thats it?

Beautiful game

Matt Listi "jml6715", Amazon
24 June 2003
  • Summary: Beautiful graphics. The maps, effects, models, weapons are all gorgeous. The money system is severely flawed. The story has some neat twists (especially with technology). But while the character models are 3D, they are pretty 2D once they join your party. Nothing like the Baldur's Gate characters. The boss monsters are lame. Very Nintendo. Once you finish it, you'll uninstall it. Still, it's worth playing once.

Pretty graphics but pretty dull...

Weenog, Ciao
16 June 2003
  • Excerpt: "Dungeon Siege looks gorgeous. I've never seen a RPG with better graphics. There's just one problem... it's not really an RPG. Dialog is a one-way affair and is about as corny as it gets. As for character development... it's fairly non-existant. Skills are divided four ways - melee, ranged, nature magic and combat magic. Experience is gained by using each skill - i.e hitting someone with a sword increases your melee skill. The storyline is fairly ...
  • Pros: Looks fantastic, CD can be used as a handy coaster
  • Cons: Repeatative, dull, not really an RPG

okie, it just got better

23 May 2003
  • Summary: i used to hate this because it was boring, but basicly i found out i didn't like it becuze it was too hard. So now that i'm using cheats, its more fun, but it isn't 5 stars becuase its pointless hack and slash, but entertaining at some points, with cool magic, so 3 stars.

You Vill Go Vere Ve Vant

Watson Davis, Amazon
6 May 2003
  • Summary: I started off thinking this was going to be a great game. The graphics are great. The story line seems pretty good. But. The game is pretty much the same thing over and over and over just repackaged slightly. As you go up in strength, the creatures you fight get correspondingly harder. You add some more players but after the first extra player, the strategies stay pretty much the same the rest of the way.
