Since, My wife wonít let me near my our Gaming PC as she is playing Sims 3 like there is no tomorrow,

I decide to play some of older back-log games on my old PC, P4 3.0 Ghz,  512MB Ram with Geforce 6800 128 MB.

I been playing Dungeon Siege for couple days and itís not what I expected. I was looking forward to more story and classic RPG type game play. Instead itís more of hack/slash.
Also, itís like I am watching the game playing itself rather than me actually controlling the game.

Hope it gets little better~

If I recall properly, there is pretty much no story to this game.

Yep.  Everyone bought into the hype, got the game, and quickly went off it as we discovered that all you really do is hit H to drink the occasional health potion.  A great shame, really.

It's alright.  I finished it but I can't see ever playing it again.

It looked pretty when it was released.

about the best use for Dungeon Siege is the Ultima V Lazarus mod, which is a remake of the game using the DS engine.

Dugeon?  Sounds like an awesome cross between Dig Dug and Dungeon Siege where Dig Dug must dig into the deepest dungeon to rescue his family and save the world.

This.  It's basically a potion-quaffing simulation that requires very little input from the player.  No story, no real challenge, blah.  Not to mention probably the worst ending since the original NES days (you beat the final boss and basically get "A Winner is You!")

That said, I did play it all the way to the end when it came out.   Mainly because it looked awfully pretty my my then-new rig.  Can't imagine going back to it now.

I played it when it first came out and I liked it.  Not the greatest game ever, but it looked great and it was fun.  People have always seemed to rip it, and that's fine, but I never really got the criticism.  I mean, heck, name a game and I'm sure I can find something to complain about.

the multiplayer world was much more fun than the single player campaign, at least to me.

Gameplay aside, I had some great moments playing the game with friends.  I'll never forget the first time we found "The Pit of Despair".  If you pay attention to the signs there is some subtle (& not so) comedy in the game.

The first DS is only good if you play co-op with friends. I think I played through it with one of my friends and his brother. By myself it sucked. The second one is better and I actually finished it solo.

Id rate them..

DS1 - 5
DS2 - 7
