Comments on: A Diablo fan’s perspective on Dungeon Siege 3 The Gaming Stack Exchange Blog Sat, 25 Feb 2017 15:49:40 +0000 hourly 1 By: Lysarion Sun, 21 Aug 2011 10:43:34 +0000 Kind of feelings DS3 is not a real DS game…

What was my favourite point in DS2, was the fact that you could build any type of character… Wanted to be a barbarian close-ranged healer? That was possible. Wanted to be a long-ranged tank? Possible too. Wanted to be an close-ranged fire-elemental baker? Possib… Wait, no, that wasn’t in the allowed jobs…

But anyway, you could build almost every combination of useless skills, to create your very own character… In DS3, this is not possible, you have to tag with the basical archetype of the charcater… That’s the point which destroyed most of the hope all the DS lovers had…

By: M'vy Tue, 19 Jul 2011 10:04:02 +0000 Well I stated my point of view in the “Starting at: Dungeon Siege 3” article. And my mind did not changed from that moment.

They promised an update on controls. I don’t know if that happened… but the configuration is really poor.

I agree for the camera thingy… you don’t know where you are. Fighting is a matter on how good you dodge, with keyboard and or mouse… and target…

It’s really painful.

I’m not sure what to think on equipments… but usually it’s just a burden in my inventory.

And of course… the story is too short.

As a Diablo and Dungeon Siege fan I equally adored the last installments in the series, the game felt wrong to me too. The only redeeming factor is the story in DS3, which unfortunately is very short. As an age old gamer I do not disagree with any of the points you have posted in your article. I’ve played DS2 with BW and Diablo II with LoD multiple times. Everything that they were, DS3 is not. The plain UI, 2 character only party, As opposed to DS2’s 6 character party feels wrong. Games in the 90s have been more advanced than this one.

You might also notice that if you run into a tight spot the camera zooms in right behind the character’s head. And that kind of makes you go blind. You don’t know where the enemies are hitting you from, you do not know where to shoot at. All you can do is hope that the character frees itself from such spots.

The glory that the older installation of these series displayed, is not visible in DS3 at not. This article voices the sentiments of many people, and I hope that the developers take note of it before shooting for DLCs and stuff and rather make a better game.

I actually did forgo upgrading to undeniably better armor near the end of the game until the final boss fight though, because it had these crazy red evil-feather-looking wing things coming out of my shoulders.
