well as support for ad hoc co-operative and competitive multiplayer
of Dungeon Siege on the PC will be glad to hear that
a portable version is now available - bringing all the butt
kicking fun of the original to a totally different market.
When you start your game you get the option to choose one
of three characters (Mogrim the Warlord, Allister the Battle
Mage or Serin the Shadow Stalker) each has their own unique
abilities and attributes. For pure brawn you can't beat Mogrim,
those who want to specialise in the art of combat magic should
choose Allister, and for a general all-rounder the blind Serin
is the character to opt for. As
well as the main characters, you also get the chance to choose
between one of two followers. This character will provide
some much needed support when you are in battle situations.
characters, including the followers, can be customised as
they level up with abilities that you choose - you can even
pay for your followers to be schooled in the art of battle.
You can choose a number of additional followers and pets along
your travels, pick up and use or trade numerous weapons, armour
and other interesting and useful items. As your skills increase
you will be able to fight more and more powerful enemies as
you head further North for reasons yet unknown to you.
graphics and music in this game are both impressive and certainly
help to make the experience more atmospheric. The people and
creatures that you come across in your travels also prove
to be helpful. You can talk to most people and there is usually
a short sound clip introduction as each character chats to
you. Some, like the strange creature who likes fish bits,
are amusing, while others are just helpful.
with the main quests in the game, there are numerous side
missions - quests that other characters will employ your services
to complete for them. Doing these not only upgrades your skills,
but also brings a financial reward, with which you can buy
better weapons or armour.
map for this game is pretty vast, and so its a relief to learn
that their are portals (which look suspiciously like stargates
from the TV show Stargate: SG-1) dotted around the
landscape. Once you stumble upon on it is added to your map
and you can use them to jump around the worlds in no time.
Having said that, the load times are a little slow when you
venture between environments, but then that's the price you
have to pay for a game of this quality.
