Space Siege

Strategy Informer

  • Conclusion: That said, if you've really nothing better to do on a weekend then Space Siege will undoubtedly please the less-demanding action gamers amongst you. Combat is solid, and 4-player co-op support gleans some enhanced entertainment – but nowhere near enough to raise the execution above anything approaching average. If you've not given Titan Quest or Diablo a try, there really isn't anything contained within Space Siege to make it worth your while.

  • Excerpt: Space Siege is, a sci-fi action-RPG set in 2202, Gas Powered Games newest offering for the PC. Space Siege is very much in the vein of previous gas powered games Dungeon Siege I and II in much of the design and level aesthetics as well gameplay. Like its high fantasy predecessor Dungeon Siege and Diablo series, Space Siege is mainly about visceral action and using items, skills, and magi…I’m sorry “engineering skills,â€� to defeat all threats to the players...

  • Conclusion: What the developers tried to do is wrap Dungeon Siege into a sci-fi package resembling Mass Effect and have failed miserably at it. While it certainly lacks the depth and epic atmosphere of Mass Effect and similar top releases, it also doesn't live up to the rich content and immersive settings of the Dungeon Siege games. This is the first time we are honestly disappointed with the folks at GPG.
  • Pros: Decent animation, special attacks are nice, straightforward and easy to learn, occasionally reminded me of Dungeon Siege.
  • Cons: Lousy story, unimaginative characters, generic design, repetitive gameplay.

  • Summary: The idea was a good one: Take an established action RPG dungeon-crawler formula, infuse it with a multilayered story, and set it in space. Include multiple player paths that raise important philosophical questions--specifically, How much is your humanity worth? Unfortunately, the decision to focus on story in Space Siege came at the expense of an engaging combat system, interesting environments, and a rewarding upgrade system. The worst part? It didn't have to.
  • Pros: Branching story paths
  • Cons: Uninspired art design, No real loot system, Cybernetic upgrades feel insignificant, Cliché story elements, Repetitive gameplay

PC Review - 'Space Siege'

WorthPlaying
21 August 2008
  • Summary: A game of tactics, combat-heavy action, and decision making, Space Siege is an all-new sci-fi themed action-RPG. At your disposal will be futuristic weapons and armor, cybernetic upgrades and a robotic partner that you can customize and command.

  • Excerpt: This click-happy sci-fi dungeon crawler is neither aggressively bad nor especially remarkable. In other words, it's OK.

  • Conclusion: Space Siege fails because it cannibalizes better games in a half-hearted way. If it had chosen a single genre to rip off, it would have fared better. The game isn’t terrible, there are just easily obtainable, much better alternatives. As much as I hate boiling game choice down to simple economics, here is the formula: Space Siege is currently $50. For that price, you could get Titan Quest Gold , Shadowgrounds Survivor and a six pack of Guinness.
