If you played the first one, this'll be exceedingly familiar...

What's there to say? This game is Dungeon Siege with upgraded graphics, some minor tweaks to gameplay, and a new 'epic' storyline.

If you like point-n-click dungeon crawls that require as little mental engagement as an episode of The Real Life, then you'll love this game. It's a well-constructed and fairly polished visit to the genre pioneered by Diablo, and the designers didn't stray far from the tried-and-true formula that have made the hack-and-slash RPG so popular.

There's nothing about Dungeon Siege II that really sets it apart from all of its predecessors, but that's truly not a negative if you're a fan of this genre.

However, if you're looking for a title with some depth, a little more flash, and some character and plot development, you're better off waiting for the much-anticipated release of Elder Scrolls IV.
