This game tries to convince you that it is dungeon siege, but it isn't for several reasons! 1. First off, it doesn't play like dungeon siege, but instead it plays more like a lousy Sacred 2 port.. 2. Tradition Most dungeon siege games don't tresspass on the story of the others, so as to tradition this isn't dungeon siege.. 3. The flexibility-- this game does not offer flexibility with your equipment... 4. the history and back-drop for the story is not dungeon siege.. According to this games history Azunai supposedly existed BEFORE THE EMPIRE OF STARS.. In the actual series history, Azunai was an ordinary mortal who challenged Zaramoth the UNMAKER, and the two of them died when Zaramoth's sword struck the shield of Azunai the defender the shock wave brought about the First Cataclysm which destroyed the Empire of Stars and laid waste to the world.. Azunai's shield was special just like Zaramoth's sword... also according to the series history the Azunite church was founded in the aftermath of the First Cataclysm to honor Azunai the Great Defender... According to this games history the Azunite church was founded in the early days of the Empire of Stars after some lady saw a Blonde haired child who had a piercing gaze in a Vision??? Huh? what??? According to this games history there was apparently no Zaramoth or Cataclysm in fact, from the "in-game" books I have read, so far the Empire of Stars collapsed when the different Imperial Legions went to war with each other.. and one of the main legions to cause the collapse of the Empire of Stars was the.......third legion??? Who tried to usurp the throne??? In the series history Azunai in his time was a ordinary person who stood up to a genocidal giant Zaramoth.... In this game Azunai is a Blonde little ghost kid who likes to invade peoples minds, so they can do great things??? Square Enix do us a favor and leave the dungeon siege universe alone.. Supervillain and gas powered games did a better job! Try before you buy!
