Well, everyone has their own opinions I suppose. But as you progress further, you will realize that everything is too linear and there isn't much exploration like in the previous ones. The only thing I really liked about this one was the beautiful graphics.I have Dungeon Siege 3 on my laptop complete with my xbox360 USB controller. Fun fun!
I like Dungeon Siege 3 as well. It seems to be on par with the original DS despite the comments on it. It's just my opinion from playing it for an hour.
You might have a point there about the immersion, Tibble. =)
I always have to chuckle when I hear those 'Khurr!' monsters yelling.
