  1. It’s a purely hack-and-slash affair with all the right elements that make this game an enjoyable experience for fans of the genre. While some fetch quests are a little dull side, it’s hard to ignore the game’s originality and fun hack-and-slash action.

    Throne of Agony offers the Dungeon Siege experience, albeit tweaked for a mobile audience. Combat is more dynamic and visceral thanks to these changes, though old-school fans may long for the point-and-click interface of the original.
  3. Charming and well executed, Throne has managed to usurp Untold Legends as the PSP's action-RPG king. [Feb. 2007, p.80]

    A pretty fun game. And with a 15- to 20-hour main quest that you can play through with three different characters (and again in co-op play), you'll definitely get your money's worth.
  5. Dungeon Siege starts out exceptionally well but really does fail to build in its promising foundations as the game progresses, and this lack of development means that as you approach the eight hour mark (the whole game works out at somewhere between 12 and 15 hours), you'll really feel like you've seen everything on offer.
  6. A decent dungeon crawler RPG that should keep starved fans happy. [Feb 2007, p.81]
  7. There are elements of this game that no one other than testers should have to sit through, and the fact that it has been released in this state is a great shame.
