Amazingly beautiful graphics and an absence of load delays set Dungeon Siege apart from other RPGs. Transition between scenes is impressively seamless. A lovely innovation, a Pack Mule, takes the burden of carrying loot and equipment off the character's shoulders. The skill system in Dungeon Siege differs from many other games in that the player is encouraged to switch between styles throughout the game. A character can increase Strength, Dexterity, or Intelligence using an appropriate weapon or spell. The game's only weak point seems to be its storyline, which is generic. Still, most players will enjoy the game, especially those who prefer action-oriented RPG without much emphasis on puzzles or side quests.
From Microsoft Game Studios:
This demo of Dungeon Siege allows you to experience the lush 3D graphics and intense over-the-top action first-hand. Begin as a farmer and journey to the besieged town of Stonebridge, through hostile forests and ancient crypts. This demo allows you to play through the first 10 percent of the game in either single-player or multiplayer mode.
Stunning graphics, very good dialog, excellent sound and music that you don't get tired of listening to! Good fight sequences that allow you to advance. Suspensful and downright spooky in places. Exactly what I Was looking for. Better than Diablo!
The demo should be a bit longer. Still after you reach then end you can take your group back through to the very beginning and kill any monsters you missed the first time through! LOVE the little pack mule! He's a sweet addition to the group!
If you are looking for a classic RPG with stunning graphics, cool music, smooth game play, and interesting characters THIS IS the game you want! I am HIGHLY likely to buy the full version having played the demo! Better than Diablo!
A great game, even now in 2007 this is one of the great, early RPG games which has act as a forerunner for many great titles such as Halo Wars, Stronghold and Battle For Middle Earth. It has great visual effects, virtually no load screens, a fully customizable world and great online features (people are still lurking out there)
