Very Good

Enjoyed it...

I've never played any previous titles of this franchise and really knew nothing about the game going in. So, it probably helps the rating that I was void of any expectations.

First the bad:

This is definitely an action game under the guise of an RPG. Linear story, few side quests, limited character options, NO map, etc. etc. It is also a very short game — credits were rolling after only 12 hours of (single player) gameplay for me. I found the characters lacking in depth and emotion with ho-hum voice acting. And the camera angles seemed rather awkward and annoying to me as well.

So why did I give this game an 8?

Simply put...I had fun playing it. Katarina pew-pew'd her way through Dungeon Siege III to save the kingdom and collect massive (and I do mean MASSIVE) amounts of loot along the way. The game made for a good, lazy weekend glued to the controller. In fact, I might even hang onto to it a while longer and play through with the different characters.

Dungeon Siege III is certainly not the best game I've ever played, but it's a decent game that's worth the rent in my opinion. Just let go of any preconceived notions (including the one that says this is an RPG) and have fun.

Not an awful game but not a great one either. definately one of those games that your glad was borrowed and not bought. The character progression and skill progression are pretty good as are the graphics. I like the fact that your can switch side kicks as you go rather than having to chose just one. On the downside the loot isn't very good. At a certain point it becomes almost impossible to tell if one item is better than another. It all looks the same and doesn't seem to improve. Takes all the fun out of finding chests and looking at stores. Along the same lines it makes the gold you find nearly useless as there is nothing cool to save for in stores.

the games camera is totally whack. Also to add the voices sound like someone is behind a keyboard typing out it as they saying it so they sound like robots.

i will give this to game the builds for the characters are good but actual gameplay isnt too good.

i gave it a 4 but other people may think otherwise like i said its for some people
