Dungeon Siege 3 - Review Roundup # 6

by Aries100, 2011-06-26 15:57:50

Another round of review for Obsidian's Dungeon Siege 3 game has appeared. I'll quote from two of them and list the others:

First up is The Escapist - 3.5/5

The combat in Dungeon Siege is fairly shallow, relying more on fast fingers than strategic genius. It compensates for this simplicity with flashy special abilities that can wreak havoc on the battlefield, but require an expenditure of Focus. It might be tempting to hoard your Focus until the really important fights, but the only way to master your abilities and gain access to their stronger "empowered" versions, is by using them repeatedly.

Then we have GameDynamo - 86/100

Playable characters are basic: tanks, magic users, and ranged attackers, with the single-player mode employing an AI sidekick. Unfortunately, the single-player side of Dungeon Siege III eventually wears down and becomes yet another grindy lootfest. However, the game shines significantly more in co-op mode. Playing in four-player co-op keeps the game fresh and entertaining.

And then the others

Machinima - a write up and a video review - 7/10

MMFOG - scoreless

PC Advisor 3/5

The Sacramento Bee - 3/4
