Space Siege - Review @ ComputerGames.ro

ComputerGames.ro posts their review of Gas Powered Games spacey action title and are on the same page with the Watch's Mike Anderson and most other reviews, giving Space Seige a score of 60/100 but with some scathing comments that indicate the reviewer might have thought even less of it:

There’s no doubt in my mind that Gas Powered Games can make quality games. The Dungeon Siege series wasn’t as good as Blizzard’s Diablo, but then again, what game was, and Supreme Commander came packed with numerous innovative features for the RTS genre...

With such a pedigree, there was no reason to suspect “foul play” with their newest creation, Space Siege, even though the trailers floating all over the Internet showed what looked like a marketing experiment instead of a “real” game.
Unfortunately, in its final form, Space Siege is exactly that: a failed marketing experiment, an over simplified game in an already “simple” market position, created for some sort of niche of players probably alive and breathing in a corner, somewhere. Space Siege is just some sort of “Dungeon Siege in space”, but where you don’t have: a loot system, an inventory screen, some sort of semi-advanced character development system, level-up, decent story… nothing. It’s just a glorified Alien Shooter: Vengeance, and nothing more.

The final slap-down:

Space Siege is a mediocre game, trying to fool the audience with its high price of admission, which is completely unjustified compared to what you actually get in the package. There are much better titles out there in this segment of the market, so you’d be better off buying something else. Or, if you really want to get it, wait for the price to drop.
