Dungeon Siege II Reviews

Gas Powered Games' Dungeon Siege sequel is the subject of yet another set of online reviews. The first is at Fragland with an overall score of 79%:
Dungeon Siege II is a decent action-RPG that has everything you can expect from such a game. Unfortunately you can only unlock the higher difficulty settings only after finishing the game, the storyline and gameplay are a bit too mediocre and after a dozen of hours repetitiveness starts kicking in. If you're looking for a game in this genre and you like predecessors like Sacred or Diablo 2, then the beautiful Dungeon Siege II will certainly give you enough for your hard earned money!

And the second is at The Armchair Empire with an overall score of 7.0/10:
The production values are fairly good when taking into consideration both the sound and the graphics. Stylistically, I found the graphics to be a little bland and slightly dated when zoomed in. However they don't take away from the overall game experience. Overall, there isn't too much that is negative that can be said about the game from a technical or design standpoint. From an intangible standpoint, and from what I look for in an excellent game, I found Dungeon Siege 2 to be lacking. As outlined, after playing the game for a few 3 hour sessions, the gameplay seemed quite repetitive, and there was little challenge either mentally, strategically, or in twitch reflex. The story isn't good enough to push the player through the repetitive action sequences, and the gamer is left with little else but to left click their way through hundreds of enemies. I don't know if it's just me, but I need a little more engagement in order to find a game fulfilling.
