1.0 out of 5 stars The Demo didn't tempt me to buy it., June 5, 2012
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Dungeon Siege 3 - Demo [Download] (Software Download)
I loved DS and DS2. This was pathetic and showed no relationship to the previous games. Moving the character around and even fighting was very painful. Clicking on locations didn't control motion. That lack of tutoring until after you needed to know, if at all was stupid. Controls for inventory were awkward. Keyboard commands were in awkward locations. It was patently obvious that the game was designed for a console and little thought went into the difference in a PC set up.

Since the original DS games had been such a huge success, and I wanted to play a new story, this was very disappointing. Then it had an easy and smooth interface and played fast. This took an hour and a half to move to a couple locations, and the only reason I survived combat was because the henchman was able to fight. There wasn't much of the pretty scenery they advertized, before I got sick of fighting the UI to move and interact with the world.

Since this is a demo, I checked how the release went, maybe they fixed these things. The reviews of console were so-so, but the PC version STILL was bad on release. They had to do a major post release fix to improve the PC version, but it only got closer to the so-so. Even at a really cheap price for the full version now, it's not worth the time. I'd rather dig out the original games. I'd have given it a negative score if I could.
