Dungeon Siege: Throne of Agony PSP Review
30 May 2010
Excerpt: On the PC, Dungeon Siege is a ‘hack ‘n’ slash’, which essentially means it’s all about whacking creatures with big teeth and kitting your created warrior out in more durable armour as well as striving to gain more powerful weapons. The series’ first handheld venture is more of the same, but true to its size, in comparison to its bigger brothers, Dungeon Siege: Throne of Agony seemingly has got some growing up to do.
Excerpt: Taking a series from one platform to another can be a risky proposition. In this case, Dungeon Siege started on the PC and eventually moved to the PSP. Actually, the developers planned to take it to the Xbox, but that version got cancelled, and Throne of Agony was made instead.

No references to the morning after a curry or other such base comparisons will be found within the proceeding text, as tempting as it is to take a few cheap shots.

Don't get me wrong scratches that itch for a fairly mindless romp through endless scads of enemies, doling out equal parts button mashing and light strategy thanks to various Followers that can be summoned to...
Excerpt: Throne of Agony may not be the best name ever conceived for a video game. One glimpse at the subtitle on the box and it is sure to bring back some bad memories of the one time you went to the bathroom with a distinct lack of All Bran in your diet – let’s just say it was a time better left forgotten. Thankfully upon playing it seem to be a much more joyful experience than the name implies.
Excerpt: Dit is typisch 2K Games, een game die ik totaal niet meer verwachtte lag op de mat. Meestal lees ik me in voordat ik een review begin te schrijven, helaas heb ik dit niet meer kunnen doen door de naderende deadline.. Maar wat stel jij je voor bij de PSP titel? We gaan eens kijken wat deze 2K titel bij mij teweeg bracht.
