Not a Diablo clone
This game is much more than just another Diablo clone. It may look like one and sometimes even play like one, but trust me, this is a true RPG, with lots of interesting quests and characters and a very good storyline. Not just slash, loot, rinse, start it all over again. This is no Torchlight. Maybe that's why it's so underrated. It attracted the wrong crowd. For people who want more from their RPGs than a mere clickfest this is just what the doctor ordered. A near masterpiece.

When I first got the game I tried to play with a keyboard and mouse and hated it so I decided to give the controller a shot and I ended up loving it. It does have its issues (such as the terrible interface) but the gameplay helps me overlook things like that. Multiplayer was also a horrid experience out-of-the-box which will have turned people off, but downloading the mod which untethers the camera allowing all 4 players to wander off at will turned it in to something special.

When the game first came out the controls were rubbish and not re-mappable for PC. They made them re-mappable, and it works fine now. I wrote a thread called DS3: Crucial Tips, to cover stuff like that. I've mentioned what keys to use, and it's real simple.

I agree with both of you though, that the game is really a beauty.

I just beat the game - with a controller - and I had a great time!
No doubt, DS3 is very different from its predecessors, but it doesn't deserve all these harsh reviews from old fans!

I'm looking forward to dungeon siege 4 and I hope that my choices will be carried over!

DS3 is a bit too dumbed down IMO. It is great for console game fans but it lacks the finnese of some other RPGs such as the AD&D games and the previous DS games (which are not upto the same standard as the AD&D games IMO). Saying this, it is still enjoyable in it's own right but I am just glad I did not pay full initial release price for it.

Of course it's not a diablo clone, a diablo clone would actually have randomize loot and fun gameplay. This game is more like a crap-clone.

To each his own...

Very interesting game with RPG elements more than in typical hack'n'slash

It's definitely randomise loot, 25+ hours of good story, and brilliant play. I loved DS3.

(I have 40 hours logged up on steam playing this to the finish. However I did tend to wander, re-visit, and take time evaluating equipment. That's how to play it IMO.)

Maybe the fact that it is the third part in a series of Diablo clones... And the Diablo clone mechanics...

but it plays nothing like Diablo. How does it NOT playing anything like Diablo make it a Diablo clone? Just because it's a fantasy RPG does not make it a Diablo clone. next thing you'll tell me is that you think the original final fantasy was a diablo clone, or the Fallout series is a diablo clone.

Of course not every action RPG is a Diablo clone, nonetheless the games in the Dungeon Siege series are. That's the beauty of part 3. It's a Diablo clone, and yes, it plays like one, but the story and characters were fleshed up by the guys at Obsidian and the result is a Diablo clone thas somehow doesn't feel like one.

by that logic, Borderlands is a diablo clone as well. And Dead Island. And...I think it's called Rage? Hell, wouldn't the elder scrolls series be diablo clones by your standards?

DS3 was my favorite of the series, and one of my favorite RPGs ever.

Still though, Torchlight II is totally rad. I won't have any dissing of it. It's a "diablo clone" that's better than the original in every way. (also, the term "clone" is questionable, since it was actually made by the same people who made Diablo 1 and 2, who left Blizzard to found Runic)
