Excerpt: Dungeon Siege has always been an action-RPG series that had the ambition of Diablo but never managed to create that same hack, slash and item-fever of Blizzard’s title. That didn’t spoil the fun, though, as you got more than enough clicking fun to keep you occupied for hours.
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...
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...

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.
Summary: Dungeon Siege III in no way, shape or form reinvents the wheel, or even takes the specific hack and slash action RPG subgenre out of the traditional giant spider filled forests many of us have seen in similar games over the years.
Easy-to-pick up RPG has lots of combat and mild language.

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.
