Summary: If you liked the Dungeon Siege games on the PC, then you will like this. For it being on the PSP, the graphics are surprisingly good. It is strictly a Linear game, so no free roaming. I didn't know what to expect, but really enjoyed playing this.
Summary: I recently purchased Dungeon Siege Throne of Agony because I've been looking for a western hack and slash RPG games for the PSP. There are many Japanese RPGs but I don't have the patience with turn based anime games. Dungeon Siege did not disappoint. The graphics are admittedly average in my opinion. You can see copied tiles of grass over and over as well as plenty of jagged edges.
Summary: I will admit that I prefer Dungeon Siege II over Diablo II on the PC so this will obviously be a biased review. This game is a perfect example of how PSP stands for PORTABLE. It's simply a portable Dungeon Siege game. I don't know how else to describe it. If you are familiar with the series or Diablo then you know what I'm talking about. If you don't, the think of this as a 3rd person real-time RPG.
Summary: This is really a good game. It's a couple years old now, and I just found out about it recently. With Dungeon Siege 3 coming out sometime on the horizon, I looked at Amazon to find Dungeon Siege 2 as I had never played through it. After searching, I came across this gem of a game. Overall a good story, and each character has their own reasons for adventuring. Combat is somewhat like a button masher, but it's fun and rewarding. About the only downfall is slow load times.

Summary: Dungeon Siege Throne of Agony for the PSP lets you play Morgrim the Warlord, Serin the Shadow Stalker, or Allister the Battle Mage in a handheld RPG game. I've always been a fan of hack-and-slash fun with Diablo and similar games. Dungeon Siege brings this same world to you with lovely graphics. Right from the start it's fairly straightforward. Monsters are in your path. You attack them. They drop shiny loot. You gather it up and move forward.
Summary: If you like the pc Dungeon Siege, you'll like this game. It's pretty spot on. The environments are above what I've seen thus far for the psp in this genre, the controls are easy to learn and customizable, and the music/sfx are fantastic. The only thing I miss from the original series is the variety of spells that drop from slain creatures. Instead, a predetermined list of abilities/spells is earned through levelling up.
Summary: Does DS:ToA have the depth of a true RPG? Of course not, although it's tough to pull that off in a handheld game -- I will wait for Oblivion or D&D:Tactics to see if that formula will work successfully on a handheld. But what DS:ToA succeeds at smashingly is being a ton of fun to play.
This is more fun that I would have ever believed!!!

Summary: I bought my PSP simply because GTA Vice City came out for the PSP. That and I have to travel a lot. And there's nothing better than sitting in cattle class and shooting random people in the street in GTA to get the aggressions out. But as time has gone on, I've bought other games for my PSP and requested this one for the holidays after reading some favorable reviews. And this game is great. Like the other reviewers, it's got a Diablo-like feel to it.
