    This game still maintains elements from the first Dungeon Siege, but overall the gameplay is a lot different to the first. The second installment is slightly harder than the first, with the easiest difficulty a lot harder (I think) than the easy difficulty on the first. This makes the differences from the first quite substantial meaning that real hardcore fans of the first may not enjoy this game. Yes it copies Diablo, but once again this smashes it hands down as like the first, you can feel you have a purpose for playing it. For new players to the game, im sure that Dungeon Siege II will prove quite popular. In addition to this, Dungeon Siege II has extremely nice graphics for a game of 2005. Expand

    This game was in a lot of ways the successor to diablo 2. It was not as dark and at times characters verged on cartoonish but overall it was a simple, hack and slash with a beautifully rendered world. A through-ally pleasurable gaming experience.

    The best hack&slash RPG out there. PROS: Fun and addictive combat with cool-looking abilities Awesome loot system Pleasant and varied environments, monsters and NPCs Lots of side quests, some of which are very clever Many secrets, puzzles, hidden treasures, secret rooms and easter eggs Some epic boss fights Great soundtrack CONS: Some minor glitches/annoyances (mods resolve some of them)
    The combat can get dull after a long session of playing
    The voice acting is mediocre at best, some of dialogues are weird
    The lore could be more detailed
    If you come by an enemy that is much higher level than you, no matter how skilled you are, you won't be able to defeat him because of the huge stat difference. There are a couple instances where this may occur.

  1. You tend to see most everything coming, which means there are few plot twists that are not either foreshadowed or anticipated. Still, it is a good storyline, and the game is entertaining.

    But it's now clear that Dungeon Siege II is now undeniably one of the action RPG stars. It makes many, many welcome tweaks and improvements--far to many to list here--and is sure to thrill any action RPG fan.
  3. A considerable entry in the field of hack and slash RPGs for the PC. The action is intense, there are a host of options for character development, and the story, while negligible, still more than serves its purpose. Save for a few annoyances, the bankrupt AI being chief among them, this is a game that will see any fan of the genre coming away satisfied.
