Product Description

Manufacturer's Description

A game of tactics, combat-heavy action, and decision making, Space Siege is an all-new science fiction themed action-RPG being developed by Chris Taylor and Gas Powered Games, the creators of Dungeon Siege I & II and Supreme Commander.

During a massive alien attack on Earth, five colony ships attempt to evacuate as many people as possible. Only one of the five colony ships, the Armstrong, escapes intact before Earth is completely obliterated by the aliens. In Space Siege, you take on the role of Seth Walker, a combat engineer aboard the Armstrong. Your objective is to protect the human race from being annihilated by this unknown alien species. Ultimately, you must make a horrific choice: will you sacrifice your humanity to save the human race?

Product Description

For years, humanity has waged war against a race of ferocious alien invaders - a war that humanity has no chance of winning. As the alien armada unleashes its final attack on Earth, a last-ditch effort is made to evacuate the planet. Five massive colony ships desperately try to flee just as Earth is obliterated.

Only one colony ship survives.

Space Siege places you in the shoes of Seth Walker, a robotics specialist who must preserve the final remnants of the human race. During the course of the game, you are forced to make the most harrowing of choices: will you sacrifice your own humanity to save the human race?

  • Tactical Combat Action - Outsmart your enemies by setting up ambushes, dodging attacks, ducking behind cover and using any of the multiple special abilities available to you.
  • Multiple Gameplay Paths - Define your game experience with the decisions you make. Will you remain truly human in the face of insurmountable odds? Or will you enhance your abilities with cybernetic technology to even the score? Customise your character with multiple skills and special abilities that fit your style of play.

3.0 out of 5 stars Mindless blasty fun 20 Aug 2008
By Clever Spud TOP 500 REVIEWER
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
I liked it. There are things wrong with it but what it chooses to do is slick.

The problems begin if you buy it thinking it's an RPG because it isn't. This is a shooter with RPG-lite upgrade choices.

The original Dungeon Siege was a beautiful looking but eventually dull RPG that didn't know if it was Baldurs Gate or Diablo and fell uncomfortably between the two. Like it or not but Gas Powered haven't made the same mistake this time and Space Siege is definitely an action game. There's no active pause in game to issue orders, like in DS or BG, but there isn't even any of the gear-based inventory management or character classes of the awesome Diablo. There's no XP, with character points getting earned at pre-set points in the game.

I can see what they've decided to do here and while I don't 100% agree with their design choices I can at least see what they were aiming for. They've tried to create an action RPG for the casual player and it almost works. The trouble is it would work so much better as a plain top down shooter which makes the claustrophobic camera angles all the more bizarre. Years after the seamless open areas of Dungeon Siege we're back crawling through small levels, with loading screens, made up primarily of tight corridors. Your viewpoint varies from over the shoulder all the way up to over the shoulder from slightly higher up.

Had they pulled the camera all the way out and just put a fog of war over the unexplored areas it would make for a decent arcade shooter. The Xbox Live Arcade may even have been what inspired this game as there are a ton of shooters showing up there. They claim they haven't ruled out making a console version - perhaps that's where it will end up.

3.0 out of 5 stars disappointing 26 Aug 2008
Fun: 3.0 out of 5 stars   
Being a fan of the "dungeon crawl" Dungeon Siege 2, I looked forward to Space Siege eagerly but upon playing it was disappointed on several fronts:

1. there's no team to build around you and balance to suit your tactics/whim. In Dungeon Siege 2 you'd have fighters, archers, wizards of different persuasions and various others all fighting together to give you an effective force against any foe, but you decided the mix and if you wanted a squad of all female necromancers then you could. Space Siege has you play one character (with robotic assistance) but doesn't allow you to really customise that character other than down a fighting or tech speciality.

2. there's no inventory to play with. Again, in Dungeon Siege 2 you'd fill half your inventory with really serious weapons and armour you couldn't use yet, hoping that one day you'd be powerful enough to wield it and cause some real damage. Space Siege doesn't even offer an inventory, let alone this kind of option.

3. no pause. Dungeon Siege 2 and Space Siege work in the same way, you click where you want to go or what you want to attack/interact with. However, in Dungeon Siege 2 you can pause the action and still interact with the characters, so whilst in the middle of a huge fight you can move your characters into better positions, take aim at the targets that really matter and plan your tactics. Space Siege doesn't have this option and it really jars when you've been used to it.

4. no big bangs. Space games usually have the advantage of really far-out, hi-tech weaponary which really makes stuff blow up. So far I haven't encountered the show stopping pyrotechnics which could so easily be included.

However, don't think this game is awful, it isn't - as a point and click sci-fi shooter it's quite enjoyable and you can get lost in it easily, I just can't help but feel it could have been so much more and that this was an opportunity missed.

2.0 out of 5 stars RUNNING IN CIRCLES IN THE DUNGEONS OF SPACE... 26 Aug 2008
By NeuroSplicer TOP 100 REVIEWER
Fun: 2.0 out of 5 stars   
If truth be told, being a huge fan of the original Dungeon Siege I was more eager to play SPACE SIEGE than any other game this summer. Hyped as the next creation of Chris Taylor and Gas Powered Games (both of DS fame), this was supposed to be the space age answer to the upcoming DIABLO 3. Well, all hell broke loose, that's for sure...

The story is tissue thin but this would not have been a real problem (after all, DS with its "simple peasant rising to the challenge to save the land" story was hardly...Shakespeare), if the game were to give immersion a chance. It does not. One never forgets that he is playing a video game. And the moment he might be caught in the action, the awkward controls will bring him back. I haven't seen such bad camera placement and panning ever since NEVERWINTER NIGHTS.

Graphics is where SS shines: creative and clear details everywhere. Environmental design is not: after a short while the next corridor looks exactly like all the previous ones. And this gives off the feeling of running in circles.

The game sounds are nothing to brag about either. The explosions and weapon discharges are well done, whereas the background music is good but nowhere near DS standards (I still use THAT theme as a ringtone).

There is no looting fun either. Dead enemies drop generic components which can be used to buy (equally generic) upgrades. No sets to complete, no unique items to find, no specially crafted weapons or armor to buy. As the game progresses cybernetic augmentations get available but as the in-game NTCs keep pointing out, there are added in expense to your character's humanity.
