It's just not Dungeon Siege anymore...not a PC game either...,
This review is from: Dungeon Siege 3 (PC DVD) (DVD-ROM)
Please note this review is based on the PC demo.
Simply put this is now a dumbed down console game, big clunky full screen menus with few options and a poor control system (probably works best with a controller). The camera is annoying too, if you zoom out too far (and it doesn't zoom out very far btw) you can't see what's coming, but zooming in too much is awkward and you can't see enough around your character. Probably something I would get use to, put up with, but it really was annoying.
I really loved Dungeon Siege 1 and 2, I really was looking forward to this. When I discovered that it was also to be released on consoles my heart sank. Everything I feared has come true. After playing the demo of Dungeon Siege 3 and being horribily disapointed I actually installed Dungeon Siege 2! Instant fun straight away!
Ok, sure the graphics are better, some nice lighting too. The sound is more realistic and atmospheric, however the theme tune is gone, I miss that, it had a good theme tune.
I almost pre-ordered this, but I'm glad I didn't. It's just not Dungeon Siege anymore. It's a real shame. :(
