Dungeon Siege 3 - Preview @ MyInsideGamer

MyInsideGamer has a Dungeon Siege 3 preview based on a 15 minute GamesCom presentation:

But what of the game you cry. There are many tools and skills that Obsidian is able to bring to the table and during the quick 15 minute demonstration it was clear that they brought everything and more. Their Onyx game engine is certainly an engine of great capacity. The dynamic lighting, vast maps that utilise vertically impressively, agreeably textured objects and entertaining physics are all traits of a well-designed engine.

The control system used during the demonstration was the Xbox 360 controller, for which there seemed to be no negative effects on gameplay. The controls seemed intuitive and fun to execute for a first timer, whilst at the same time it offers enough depth that hardcore players will be satisfied. With a mixture of stances and weapon choices, players will be able to deal with any situation how they choose, be it crowd controlling power attacks, high damage per second quick swipes or tactical spells.
