Do I recommend this game? To most people, yes. To some people who only favor the new generation of video games... Not so much.
Dungeon Siege is mainly a game you would play for nostalgia; or if you're just a fan of mysterious, old school RPGs that don't hold your hand or if you're just a RPG collector (You want every RPG).
When I was a little kid, Dungeon Siege was the first video game I played. This may cause some bias on this review, so that's a warning.
Dungeon Siege MIGHT not have the most advanced combat system, but with the amount of interesting characters you can control (8 at maximum, if I'm correct) such as a dwarf, an archer, a alcoholic yet skilled warrior and even a half giant you can make all kinds of strategy and find all kinds of gear to independantly equip each party member you are controlling.
The game may seem very linear at first but if you're willing to playthrough the game over one time you'll discover many secret locations and party members which you may not have discovered from the first playthrough, something special Dungeon Siege always captured me with was the mystery. SPOILER ALERT: In one area, you find extremely large bones... Who knows what that was before it died?
You have three classes: Melee, Ranged or Magic. There are many spells, swords (or even clubs or hammers or axes) and bows (or crossbows in the expansion pack) to collect, and did I mention they amount of armour there is?
Not to mention the brilliant voice acting and enchanting sound effects.
Dungeon Siege is overall an AMAZING game. The first playthrough you will find incredible since you won't know what to expect, then there's always the expansion. The only complaints I have is that the multiplayer is disabled, I wish there were more party members and it wasn't as linear (The secret locations and party members does get slightly limited, there are many side quests but most you'll probably complete by mistake even if you don't accept it.)
The final verdict for Dungeon Siege is... A 8 out of 10. The game is incredible (a 10/10 for the first playthrough) but there are a few flaws that could keep someone from playing.
Until the next review, seeya!
