Dungeon Siege II Reviews

The first two online reviews for Gas Powered Games' Dungeon Siege sequel are up, and they're both quite positive. The first is at GamePro with an overall score of 4.5/5:
Diablo II is quite simply a legend, an effortless, elegant condensation of every compulsive act known to man. Dungeon Siege II is a variation on that premise, and an excellent one. But its biggest drawback is that it doesn't have a Battle.net to fall back on. Sure, the new skill tree system (which allows for more character-building flexibility) is a neat twist, and the streamlined inventory system represents a wonderful addition. In short, it's a great game, but it needs a more persistant online community to truly shine.

And the second is at GameZone with an overall score of 8.3/10:
You tend to see most everything coming, which means there are few plot twists that are not either foreshadowed or anticipated. Still, it is a good storyline, and the game is entertaining. For those who have yet to experience a role-playing adventure of this nature, DS II is a good one to begin with. For those who enjoy the Neverwinter Nights-, Baldur's Gate- or Icewind Dale-style titles, this is somewhat similar. Conceptually the game may not offer much that is original or new, but it does offer solid adventure and entertainment value.
