View Full Version : Dungeon Siege label, just slapped on?

I don't know, I'm not saying it's a bad game. But this largely feels nothing like either of the previous incarnations.

Other than names and places, I'm hard pressed to find any similarity. As far as I can tell there are no pets from what I've seen, the game no longer features a spell book, the progression of skills is removed and now it largely depends on the standard XP to level up system like practically every other RPG.

Other than the Archon character so far it's very much more bland in character variety. I mean, the last game had humans, dwarves, elves, half giants, dryads. The previous games offered at least a little bit of visual character customization.

It's terribly unoptimized for mouse and keyboard play as well... though a quick look at the forums tells me I'm hardly the first to notice that.

I think I'll probably get Dungeon Siege III, but I don't think I'll preorder it. I'll probably pick it up on sale at some point.
