Despite the somewhat trite storyline –- you're a member of the 10th Legion who vows to prevent Ehb from falling into darkness and despair -- there is some satisfying, combat-heavy RPG action here. Players wield all kinds of might and magic to defeat villains and demons. The A.I. (artificial intelligence of the computer-controlled characters) is decent, but teaming up with friends online is more fun than flying solo. Plus, gamers can drop in and out of battle without stopping the onscreen action. RPG fans should also appreciate the customizable character classes, which feature a vast range of abilities to choose from, and also that they can recruit companions with abilities to complement their own.

While it's unlikely this game will keep you glued to the television or computer monitor for several months -- its re-playability is questionable -- this first high-definition Dungeon Siege is a fun and frantic "RPG lite" with great co-op play. Note: All three versions of the game are the same.
