    Multiplayer has been greatly improved, with characters' journal state now being saved, so playing through one of the campaigns with a friend or two is a much more satisfying.

    Plainly average and tends to bring the faults of the parent game to the forefront without being able to hide them under slick layers of production and ambiance.
  3. Legends is a 15- to 20-hour long expansion that packs more of the same type of dungeon-crawling gameplay from the original--with an emphasis on the "crawling" part.
  4. This RPG is full of lush graphics and beautiful effects but completely devoid of a decent story, character development, and anything resembling depth.
  5. I don’t think the storyline can get much more generic than this, and I honestly don’t think it’s told and directed very well.

    Legends of Aranna isn't radically different! Who'd a thought an expansion pack would actually just expand the original game and be done with it!?!
  7. Simply more of Dungeon Siege. There’s new stuff, new areas, new dungeons and so on. More, however, isn’t always better. While there’s a stack of new additions, the new campaign is less entertaining than the original.

    It's a maddeningly beautiful game filled with the tedium of being an observer more than a player. [Feb 2004, p.81]

    For those of you who haven't played the original Dungeon Siege, it's included with this expansion pack for free. This is a tremendous value. For pure monster-hacking goodness, it's really hard to beat Dungeon Siege.

    Like its predecessor, this might not be the most memorable roleplaying experience out there, but it will still keep you enthralled. [Feb 2004, p.70]

    OK, so it is linear and violent and repetitive. I loved the original and this expansion cost me a few sleepless night too!

    If you didn't play the first game, this is your chance. If you know Dungeon Siege think this only a weak expansion compared with original game.
