Well the demo saved me $40.00
Bad controls.
horrible interface.
Graphics are sub-par. 1920x1080 feels like 800x600
Talent system a wash.
Does not feel like a DS game at all.
Camera is terribad.
Hell, torchlight is more in depth than this.
I felt dirty having this thing on my HD.

Blasphemer!

Did you actually play through the whole thing? DS2 is a great game ... yes, it's almost comically cheesy and lame at the beginning, but it gets totally awesome after the first few hours. One of my all-time favorite games, and easily (imho) as good as DS1. In fact, I liked it way better ... and I LOVE DS1.

I'm about to D/L the demo here ... looks like reactions are mixed here among OCN'ers. That's too bad.

Although ... DS2 seemed lame from the demo, too, as it was just the very beginning of the game. I almost ended up not getting it ... but then I did, and ended up really glad. I played through the campaign on all three difficulties, actually.

Okay, so I played through the demo a ways ... and ...

Wow, what a mess.

Now, I'm not saying I'll never play this game, but I'm not going to pre-order, nor could I possibly see myself paying full price.

First impression/objection is that it seems totally non-canonical. Like, you're supposedly in Ehb, and there's small details that are reminiscent about the old game, like the way things turn transparent when they're above you, but other than that ... why is this 'Dungeon Siege', exactly? There's GUNS for crying out loud. And there was even a robot-looking thing

I dunno about you guys, but the land of Ehb I remember didn't have guns, and DAMN sure didn't have any flippin' robots.


Also, the gameplay is TOTALLY different. It's less Diablo/Titan Quest and more, well, The Witcher. Like, you can dive and block and roll and stuff. It's NOT like the first two in terms of gameplay, as in, it's not point/click, it's move around with WASD (I actually used a controller, which the games seems entirely designed for). And for this type of game, the two camera angles you can choose from are totally annoying. They're much too 'overhead'.

Graphically, it looks just ... bizarre. The water looks horrible (like, 3dMark01 has better looking water, and it's DX8), the animations of the plants and stuff go WAY too fast, as do the character animations, and the textures are this strange looking mix of mostly low-res textures with the occasional nice looking high-res one in some random place (rocks, mostly).

Also, way too many items don't cast any shadow at all, despite my having shadows on 'Insane', which doesn't make the scenes look very convincing, esp. the indoor stuff at the beginning. The scenery almost looks like something from 2005, and they just sprinkled on some modern 'post-processing' flourishes here and there, like adding Depth of Field.

At 1920x1200 (which, like the Witcher 2, is actually 1080p) the game very much looks like it's just up-sampled from 720p. Things have this 'blocky' look to them, like a low-budget indy game or ... a bad console port. And performance is actually kinda poor considering how basic the scenes look, with their missing shadows, low-res textures, and 720p-upscaled appearance. I mean, it can run totally maxed out on w/8xAA on a single 470 at 60fps, but it hits up in the 90% range with v-sync on ... and it doesn't look like it should even be that difficult to run.

Overall, in every possible regard, it suffers from extreme console-itis, and it doesn't remotely feel like a DS game. Graphically, the whole look of the game fairly screams "we had to make this able to run on consoles, and we can't be bothered to make it look better for you PC gamers".

Voice-acting, however, is upgraded somewhat from the terrible voice acting of the first two, so I will give it that

This all being said, it looks like it could be some decent mindless fun once it hits $19.99 (I'm guessing, that'll be after a few months), if I can forget that it's supposed to be DSIII and just pretend it's some new IP ... that I'm actually playing on a console

Damn my friends and them making me pre-order this game. I haven't played the demo, but I really hope the game is better than the demo, hate to waste $50. Everytime pre-order a game it is a disaster it seems, and I tell myself I will never do it again, but keep putting myself in the same situation Here's hoping for the demo being a fluke.
