Way back in 2002, Gas Powered Games and Microsoft released Dungeon Siege on the PC. A favorite at LAN parties, this four player co-op game had players battling hordes of monsters, sacking all kinds of loot, and generally just having a heck of a time. A sequel and expansion packs followed, but the series has been quiet since late 2006.
That's all behind us now though, as Square Enix and Obsidian Entertainment have teamed up for a full on sequel with Dungeon Siege III (DS3). This newest entry takes place on the same continent as the previous games, Aranna, and also marks the first time the series is available on consoles.
Whether playing alone, with a friend via splitscreen, or with up to three others online, DS3 is an addictive and enjoyable experience.
