Commercials always make things look better then they actually are. Yes, i'm talking about videogames, not McDonalds or whatever fast food joint you frequent. When i saw the commercial for Dungeon Siege i saw a cool, new, re-awakened genre of dungeon-crawling. Im not a big fan of dungeon crawlers, as i prefer more open-world RPG games like Oblivion and fallout 3. But i thought i'd give DS3 a chance.
Sound/Visual: Sound? Not bad. I didn't realize any faults in it big enough to put in this review. Visuals? Thats another story. When i started playing the game, my first thought was, "This is a Playstation THREE game?" as the graphics looked very PS2-era to me. This may not bug people as it did to me, but i like pretty games.
Storyline/Gameplay: The Storyline wasn't anything too amazing, just the usual RPG elements- some ultimate baddie raising an army to take over the world, some really na'ive heroes, and enemies that feel very recyclyed. Character wise, there are about four different types: an agile scout-type person (who looks very like Megan Fox. Hmm...) the bulky tank-like warrior, a mage specializing in offensive magic (blowin' stuff up) and then a defensive-favoring mage (preferring to cast shields and distractions).
Replay Value: None whatsoever. Because the levels have no variety or different paths, there's no reason to replay levels in my opinion. As much as it strives to be a "classic dungeon-crawler RPG" it feels more like a "Iron Man-esque dungeon crawler with a few different character types". You may like it, however i didn't. DEFINITLY DONT BUY... unless you like it that much.

when i first loaded up the game and saw you only had 4 characters to chose from i was highly dissapointed. then i had a thought that i you limited in selection then you should have some amazing abilities but you only get 9 total :-(. calling this an rpg is an insult to all the good rpg's out currently. i've had this game for 4 hours and have already prepared it to be sent back. Please do not waste your time on this game and go play an rpg where you can decide how you want to play your character and ignore this insult to the genre.
