I was told that this game is disappointing, that it is terrible, and nothing like it's predecessors.
Correct, the gameplay is not like the former predecessors, but damn is the game a lot of fun!
The story is connected to Dungeon Siege 1, the classic. Sure, you only have four heroes, and also you can't create your own character, but I don't give a rat's ass, either way, you still had only four classes to choose from.
Rock on Dungeon Siege!
