4.0 out of 5 stars Siege Thy Dungeon Crawler, 13 Oct. 2011
= Fun:4.0 out of 5 stars 
This review is from: Dungeon Siege III: Limited Edition (PS3) (Video Game)
The old fashioned action RPG, how I have missed you. `Baldur's Gate' was a fantastic series, but it feels like it's been years since a decent dungeon crawler hit consoles. All of a sudden 2011 has become the year, with plenty of dungeon based games coming in downloadable form, but with `Sacred 2' letting me down, it is up to `Dungeon Siege 3' to sate my appetite for whacking dungeon fodder in a full RRP game.

`Dungeon Siege 3' is one of those rare games that does what it says on the tin. Everything is set for a basic action RPG; third person perspectives, quests, loot drops. The reason the game works is because all these basics are done very well. It's not the prettiest, original and, if I am being honest, most interesting game out there, but it is certainly entertaining. There is some sort of story that is sub-Tolkien stuff, but what really matters in that the gameplay feels great. In the single player you can choose one of four characters whose skills differ from full warrior to full mage, and characters in between. You can take a hero online and play with 3 other people, but be aware that not all your saves will go with you.

This is a game that takes bog standard and does it really well. With a central quest that lasts around 15 hours, it is not the longest RPG ever, but it never outstays its welcome. Having not played a decent dungeon crawler on console for around 8 years `Dungeon Siege 3' really filled a gaping hole I did not know existed. Silly, action packed and a bit creaky, `DS 3' is a great RPG for people who like their RPGs with a bit more action and less thinking.
