Load times are agony.

Summary: Make sure you save often. I've had the game freeze several times while loading. I have also had it freeze in the middle of a battle, and had my character get stuck beside a wall (had to turn the game off). Overall it's a fun game if you like mashing a button repeatedly to swing a weapon and hitting another button to fling a fireball (there are different weapons and armor to collect, and you can shoot lightning and ice).
Summary: This game I would put under the Yea I'll play it just to see how it ends. I didn't find it at all challenging and it wasn't difficult to complete. It got redundant real quick in that the game play really doesn't change much through each "mission" The other thing I found odd was that the "bosses" weren't any more difficult to beat than their underlings. I gave it 3 stars because it was a decent enough time waster, but not much more than that.
Summary: Okay so overall this game is a blast to play if you like rpg style dungeon crawlers. With three character classes to chose from in the beginning you can try out different styles, whether it be warrior, magic wielder, or stealth character. The only downside to this game is it tends to freeze up quite often and can be a pain especially if you haven't saved for awhile. So my advice, save often. Like everytime you leave a dungeon save your game. Just in case.
Summary: the game was mainly a hack-n-slash game. a lot of mindless fun hacking your way through levels, leveling up, grabbing items and doing quests. Graphics not the greatest, but still kinda fun at times if nothing else left to play.
Summary: I really hate to knock this game. I do not want to. However, for the price and the description of the game, it should be better than it is. It is soooo monotonous and very easy. This would be a great RPG for the teens and younger. Yes, I am older than that. The graphics are ok. The number of quests are many. Plenty of weapons and spells to get your hands on and use. What is bad are the load times. They are horrible (PSP Slim).
Conclusion: I bought this game on a whim as I like the original Dungeon Siege and Dungeon Siege 2 on the PC. First impressions were good with the usual DS style of gameplay: Hack 'n' Slash with very accessible RPG features. When I moved out of the start area the first thing I noticed was very long load times but I never let this put me off.
Conclusion: This game is actually quite nice, it has a massive map, and will keep you busy for hours. It allows you to create your own character and you can choose your 'sidekick' to help you. You can choose your own path, and what type of weapon to use. The game has a decent storyline although a little slow in places. Although there are numerous negative issues with this game. First of all, your character moves slow in places, and this becomes extremely tedious.
Excerpt: being an avid dungeon siege fan i was estactic when i found this gem for the psp. my excitement was short lived. The game was a bit in my opinion to complicated for a hand held device. it took me a good long while to remember how to access the maps. I almost never found the right quest givers and it took me forever to get anywhere. I also did tn like the pre made characters that the game offered.
Cons: charaters and no challenge until i was bored with it already
Summary: Nice fighting game to keep you busy. The PSP does well to get all of this onto the small console, but, it can get a bit repetative. The comments about loading times are very valid. It gets so frustrating when visiting the village / viewing the map / or teleporting from one place to another. Way too long! The first half of the game is good as you progress up the experience ladder and gather better weapons and train up your companion.
