"I only realized that the game was primarily a single-player experience after completing the 12-hour campaign when I tried, well, the multiplayer. Consider this a fair warning."
Obsidian strikes again making a worse game than its predecessor
"Without a robust multiplayer, Dungeon Siege III puts itself into the category of solid single-player fantasy action RPG titles, which puts it in competition with the likes of Torchlight and DeathSpank, which are both strong downloadable titles for $15." I havent played the full game yet but putting it in the same ranks as Torchlight 1 and Deathspank is a little harsh I bet. I would gladly pay $40 for what I saw of the demo and I simply couldnt stand the fact I put down so much on Deathspank...uuugh.
Loved Death Spank Thongs and also Torchlight, but yeah I'm not sure that it is a proper comparison? Maybe compare it to Sacred 2? Regardless the demo sold me on the game, and I look forward to playing it.
I thought Deathspank was awesome.
Here comes the western rpg hater.First hating witcher 2,now dungeon siege 3.Obsidian has made a better game than its publisher's last jrpg.Quite a feat and an embarrassment to the publisher considering obsidian is just a free lancer with limited funds to work with.
lol your stretching. I didn't like witcher 2. Far different than hating on it. And false the last jrpg they put out was dissidia 2 and tactics ogre psp, ff iv collection.All receiving very high scores. If your referring to ff 13 it averaged an 85. If this gets an 85 I will be shocked.
i bet this game is full of bugs/glitches.
It hasn't been mentioned at all. Maybe because Obsidian were actually given time to polish it this time. Incredibly scathing review but the game gets a B. Interesting.
I can't wait to play this game. I don't think it'll suffer from the Obsidian curse as some commenters are suggesting....
cant wait for this game! the demo was awesome, really left me wanting more.
Reviewers are cutting points for story?That's interesting!No matter how buggy their game is,obsidian perhaps got the best writing table in industry.But good to see a bug free title.
You're forgetting ff14,the overhyped game that is needing 1 year of fixing.
IMO there've been way too many dungeon crawlers coming out lately, they're all blending into each other at this point.
