    If the demo is in the example of what they want $50.00 for then you got to be joking. Straight line playing no deviation and no motivation to play. They shouldn't spend more on making the game than they have on ads and buying reviews.

    The game is a slap in the face for any DS fan, it is just a hollow piece of crap that fails badly at pretending to be a game. I can understand that people might want games that are short, but that means you have to put some quality into them and not this sort of garbage.

    The game is boring, way to short and no fun at all. The characters are boring as the game, there is no real story and the outro I saw was... well... Worse than the game! I regret spending 2.50 Euros.

    This game has no item hunting, not a real good story and even though I played DS1 and DS2, this game was a BIG dissapointment

    Chris Taylor and his cronies can bribe as many reviewers as they want -it still won't turn this steaming pile of crap into an actual game. There is not a single redeeming quality in this title. Avoid it even in the bargain bin. If somebody offers you money to take this game from them, strongly consider how much your time is worth before making your decision.

    Awful. Worst camera view in the history of computer gaming - you're basically unable to look up, ans see a bit of floor in front of you! Utterly linear gameplay. No replay value whatsoever. Lame weapon and armour system. Good for insomnia.

    In my opinion it sucks. The graphics are like it's a game from 1997. The price is damn high (50 bucks on Steam). And the game is not fun at all. There is nothing that makes this game unique and remarkable. Don't buy it.

    Average game marred by ridiculus camera oriented control system, it wants to play like an FPS so give it an FPS control system....GRRR waste of hard earned cash.

    FAIL! I don't know, what this game wants to be. It is NOT a RPG, neither it is an action game. For an RPG, it's way too shallow, bland and simple. There are RPG elements, but it really does not matter, if you upgrade your special abilities or not. You don't care for the character you're playing. You don't care to listen to mission descriptions and the story. You FAIL! I don't know, what this game wants to be. It is NOT a RPG, neither it is an action game.

You don't care for the character you're playing. You don't care to listen to mission descriptions and the story. You just right click on any adversary until he's dead and keep on crawling through uninteresting, bland halls and corridors. For an action game, the controls are HORRIBLY bad. While they work in games like Dungeon Siege, which require sometimes some strategy to win, in Space Siege combat and gameplay does not fit to this kind of control scheme. It's simply annoying! Space Siege does not even look good or interesting, so that you can show off with your new power hardware. Space Siege is a complete failure. It does not achieve anything in any part of it. The RPG part is useless, the action part suffers from bad controls and the visuals are boring, even if you have a decent machine for maximum settings. I don't know, what this game was supposed to be, but compared to the Dungeon Siege games, its just forgettable crap! Expand

    Controls are incredibly bad and ruin the game completely.

    Ridiculously bad. Poor graphics, lacklustre level designs, laughable skill progression, complete lack of random loot system and retarded control scheme. Try shadowgrounds instead, a way superior game at a lower price.

    One of the worst games I've ever played, what the hell happened? Dungeon Siege 2 was awesome, but this was just dire **** multiplayer was merely single stages from the game with zero cohesion... avoid at any price, avoid even if its free.

    The combat looks bright and colorful on the surface and there is no shortage of menacing enemies and massive explosions, but the AI doesn't provide any real tactical challenge, the layout of the levels and missions is remarkably linear, and the range of abilities and weapons is too limited.

    Unfortunately, Gas Powered Games forget all the elements that make the games in this genre so damn fun and addictive. It's really a shame because had they done it right, it would have made the wait for Diablo III that much more bearable. But as it stands, this is without a doubt the worst addition to the Siege series yet.

    It's definitely action-packed, especially when playing with friends. It's just a damn-shame that Chris Taylor and his cronies at Gas Powered Games didn't get with the times and mix in a proper action-focused control scheme.
