Conclusion: Treasures of the Sun is the first (and perhaps only) DLC pack for Obsidian Entertainment's Dungeon Siege III . In it, you learn that a former legionnaire named Etienne du Marnay left for the Aranoi Desert to search for "the greatest treasure of the ancient Azunite faith," and you decide to follow him -- as much for the treasure as to discover his fate.
Excerpt: Having just finished both the DLC and the main campaign in Dungeon Siege III, I was very surprised at how good the game and the expansion are. I only picked the game up because it was at such a low...
Pros: + New side story, + Loads of new quests, + New abilities & features
Conclusion: Overall, Dungeon Siege III is a playable but unexciting game. It provides you with lots of stuff to kill and equipment to loot, which gives it the minimum requirements for an action RPG, but it doesn't include anything to keep you playing or wanting more. It is slightly better than Space Siege , preventing it from being the worst Siege game of all time, but it's a near thing.
Excerpt: As a series, Dungeon Siege has always had an odd position in games industry. Dungeon Siege III ‘s predecessors were adequate PC dungeon crawling romps that stood in the colossal shadow of Blizzard’s incredibly popular Diablo games. While it proved to be a moderate success, the franchise seemed to fade away into obscurity shortly after release of the sequel.
Easy-to-pick up RPG has lots of combat and mild language.

Summary: Parents need to know that Dungeon Siege III is a fantasy role-playing game that's built primarily around combat. Using melee weapons (such as swords) and ranged attacks (including magic) players fight against -- and kill -- all kinds of human and inhuman enemies. Gamers will usually see a plume of red blood when they're defeated. Like other games of this kind, woman are suggestively dressed and reveal a lot of cleavage.
Conclusion: Dungeon Siege III is an ok RPG that had so much potential going for it. Considering there are other RPGs on the market today; the likes of Torchlight and Trine, requiring someone to pay $60 for this RPG experience seems a little too much. However, for those who invest fully into the experience that Dungeon Siege III brings to the table, you will be more than rewarded for your time and effort.
Conclusion: It probably won't last longer then a first play for most however. 7.5/10 I really like this game. If you are a Fan of action RPG games I believe this game is something you will enjoy. Maybe not a good game for casual gamers nor hard core RPG fans.
Summary: I don’t really have any huge criticisms to level at " Dungeon Siege III ". It’s the epitome of an inoffensive game really. There’s just neither anything terribly special about it though, either. It works well on consoles, has some interesting gameplay, but is rather short, has little replay value, and could work multiplayer an awful lot better with regards to character choice.
