Lighting skeletons on fire in Dungeon Siege III brings back fond memories of that summer back in 2002 I spent playing Dungeon Siege with a buddy in co-op. Like its forbearers, this action-RPG is about having a good time with friendsjust pick weapons and smash enemies until the loot stops flowing. DS3's quite different, thoughthere are many changes, most of which I've grown to appreciate.
At first, I balked at being forced to play as one of four inflexible dungeon-delvers, but each well-designed character's unique nine-ability arsenal is appealing. Each has a specific combat styleswords and shield, fire magic, arcane magic, or gunsbut they all fill the same role: a self-healing damage-dealer that swaps between two stances, one best suited for fighting a single target and one for taking down groups.
