"Siege the day!"
5 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

DSII takes all the great elements of DS (and Legends of Aranna) that made it such a classic game and streamlines them into a very slick package indeed.

Improvements abound with character development. Choose your own skills – as a ranger there are several options you can take depending on wether you want to specialize with the bow/crossbow or thrown weapons. Very well thought out!

Gameplay, although similar to DS, has had a bit of an overhaul and the result is a much smoother experience. Besides the main quest, there are a broad range of interesting sub-quests that will see you journeying the length and breadth of the country to accomplish. And it's worth exploring any little nook and cranny you come across – not only for the rewards but for the sheer pleasure of the range of diverse locations.

Don't underestimate the power of your pets! I got through most of the game with just myself (combat mage) and 3 pets – and I can tell you that they can help you survive some very, very sticky situations. The attention to gameplay is evident here as well because your pets receive bonuses depending on what you feed them. Love it!

Weapons, armour, spells, etc are brilliant and keep you playing and playing in order to upskill your characters so you can make use of higher level stuff. And you can enchant certain items too.

There's stacks more I can go on about – the replayablility factor for example is quite high – but stop reading this review, buy the game, and see for yourself. As for me, I'm off again ( as a ranger this time ) with my more traditional party of a fighter and a nature mage to kick some ass......er, no, I didn't mean you Pookie (my mule).

Highly recommended!!!

"What a"
5 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

DS II is definitely what a “version 2” should be. The basic gameplay is the same as the original, but the engine, graphics and plot have been improved out of sight! The graphics are awesome. The AI is smart (but not omnipotent). The plot is interesting. Some game-sites have reviewed this as “good-but-not-great” due to the similarity with the original, but I say that is a bonus. If you've played DS I, then you won't need a tutorial to play DS II. Well done GPG!

"A great evolution from the first"
5 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

If you loved the first Dungeon Siege you're almost guaranted to like the second.

It's not a completly new game but an evolution, it builds on what made the first game good as well as adding in some new features like evolving the control you have over pets, enchantable items and more.

I give it a 5/5 not because it's necessarily the best game ever, but because it acomplishes what it was supposed to, build on the first game and to keep you playing it from begining to end.

"Great sequel!"
5 stars"

This is definitely what a sequel should feel like. Dungeon Siege 2 maintains the great combat with new improvements, great variety of enemies, more spells and skills to learn! There are plentiful amounts of weapons and armour just like what a RPG should have. Rares, uniques, sets, sure it's blatantly copying Diablo II but it fits in the Dungeon Siege world. The story isn't a let down, the NPC's are varied enough that if you don't like one you can just ditch them and get another! There are NPC quests, secret quests and an abundance of quests to take.

The scenery is beautiful with lush forests to dark foreboding caves. Spells look amazing as usual and the new skills are great! They can really turn the tide of battles. Visual effects have always been a strong point of Dungeon Siege and the sequel does everything brilliantly.

There are a few disappointments though. In Dungeon Siege there was an emphasize on saving up money (hoarding anyone?) and buying only what you could really afford, like in the first town where you could either buy new gear for your people, or choose between a mage and an archer, which made me cheat cause I was obsessed with getting everyone. xD With Dungeon Siege 2 though you have a main town for each area so ultimately never need to save up money because if you run out of room in your inventory you can just teleport back. If you need equipment you can just teleport back. If you need potions you can just teleport back. It loses the feeling of adventuring and hoarding potions from enemies as well as just picking the best stuff to take to the new town which, if it was your first play through, you really didn't know when you'd get there and with Dungeon Siege 2's set up of a main town and teleporting it goes back to Diablo II's repetitive nature.

A brilliant game still but I believe it loses part of what made Dungeon Siege 1 unique.

"Fun!"
5 stars"

Good gritty graphics, interesting plot and story, funny and intriguing NPCs, a vast number of equipment in the world, thrilling skills and spells to cast, the list just goes on and on! If you're into RPGs you'll love this game! Sure it doesn't have the life changing (game changing?) decisions a Bioware game does, but the pure fun of it proves worthy of a try.

"Very good but with some problems"
4 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

Pros: That it exists at all and it's a single player game and not another MMORPG.

The look and feel, the ambiance, which is excellent.

The mystifying array of weapons and armour to choose from and customise your appearence with.

The plethora of monsters from giant bugs to undead warriors to weird, pigmy tribal guys. The modeling and animation is excellent.

Long, good value for money.

Cons: A little too hack n slash for my taste. Not enough settlements (there are three), and they don't seem to be fleshed out very well. I'd prefer a couple of larger towns to explore with more characters and sub quests (there are 41).

The combat's way too easy. Initially only the EASY setting is available. MEDIUM becomes available once you've played through, and DIFFICULT when you've played through again. EASY is too easy to present much of a challenge, so combat just becomes a bore. And you can't die! When a character “dies” they are really just unconscious and will wake up in a minute or two. If all the party dies you're teleported to town ready to go back to where you left off. Even the bosses are hoplessly weak. You just stand there slashing at them, quaffing a health potion now and again until they go down.

When you load a game you start not where you saved but back at town and all the monsters have respawned. You don't have multiple slots to save your games in.

Respawn in general.

Finally, a pet peev of mine, not being able to turn the green rings under your character's fe­et off.

But besides the flaws I am really glad I bought it, and didn't want it to end. I really hope there's an expansion soon.

Note: There are a couple of good mods to fix the difficulty and remove the green rings :)

Description

It’s been a generation since you vanquished the evil that plagued the Land of Ehb, and now…a new menace has awakened. In Dungeon Siege II, the sequel to the best-selling RPG from Gas Powered Games, you will be called on to again wield sword and spell to save the world from a growing abomination many years in the making.

A thousand years ago, the crusaders of Azunai crossed swords with the legions of Zaramoth in the final battle of a century-long rebellion. As the tyrannical god Zaramoth struck the final blow through Azunai’s trembling shield, the earth shook. In that moment, the forces of magic were unchained, and both armies were consumed in a brilliant cataclysm that stretched for leagues across the Plain of Tears. Only a scarred wasteland remained as final testament to the First Age of Man.

And for a millennium, magic has continued to spread to the farthest corners of the world, freely flowing to any who would command it. But the tide of magic has begun to wane, heeding instead the call of an ancient legacy. From the Plain of Tears a new heir beckons, and with each day his strength grows - consuming all those who submit, eradicating those foolish enough to resist. With none to oppose his ascendance, the circle will be complete, and an ancient age will begin anew.

What fate will befall the Second Age of Man? The time for judgment is nigh.
