Dungeon Siege: Throne of Agony (PSP)

 

The Dungeon Siege series has carved out a solid niche for itself in the post-Diablo hack-and-slash realm since the original's release on the PC in 2002. Throne of Agony is the franchise's first foray onto a handheld platform. The sleek Dungeon Siege...

Yet another in a long line of uninspired Diablo clones that should have never been produced for the PSP.

Lets make things clear from the outset. This article will not, and I repeat, WILL NOT, contain any jokes about the titular ‘Throne of Agony'. No references to the morning after a curry or other such base comparisons will be found within the proceeding...

Hackin' and slashin' and feelin' no pain.

In the end, Throne of Agony doesn't do anything that hasn't been seen in the genre before. Luckily, it does what it does very, very well -- well enough that there isn't a better hack 'n slash on the PSP right now. If a meaty but ultimately shallow...

Dungeon Siege fans who have been dreaming about a portable game in the series will find a lot to love about Throne of Agony

Dungeon Siege fans who have been dreaming about a portable game in the series will find a lot to love about Throne of Agony. It's a purely hack-and-slash affair with all the right elements that make this game an enjoyable experience for fans of the...

Considering that the Dungeon Siege series got its start with Microsoft Game Studios as the publisher and Gas Powered Games as the developer, one of the last places anyone would expect to see the series leap to is a Sony-owned platform like the PSP. But...

Solid action RPG game play system translates well to PSP ; Eye-catching game design calls to mind the work of artist Tim Sale ; Nice linkage between this title and its PC predecessor

Some may not care for the heavy on hack-n-slash/light on epic story mix, but that’s always been a series trademark ; Limited multiplayer and no online play ; Only two active party members can battle together at a time

Dungeon Siege: Throne of Agony may not be the greatest RPG to appear on PSP ever, but it deserves to be on most gamers’ Top 5 list.

With the popularity of the Diablo games on the PC you might have thought that Diablo III would have arrived a few years after the release of the amazingly popular Diablo II. However the game never materialized and it's been almost seven years since...

Dungeon Siege: Throne of Agony has its fair share of problems but on the whole it manages to bring a good Dungeon Siege experience to PSP gamers. That said, it's a shame the storyline hadn't been better and also that the game doesn't allow you to...

Dungeon Siege: Throne of Agony PSP Review

 

On the PC, Dungeon Siege is a ‘hack ‘n' slash', which essentially means it's all about whacking creatures with big teeth and kitting your created warrior out in more durable armour as well as striving to gain more powerful weapons. The series' first...

The biggest problems are the repetition of the game and the PSP’s obvious Achilles heel: awful loading times. Here they're so excruciatingly bad that even a simple loading screen itself must be loaded. In spite of these problems, Throne of Agony is a...

The PSP has seen the release of a few nice RPG titles lately, and Dungeon Siege has got its chance to make an impression. Does it work? A portable success? Or a cramped failure?

Great graphics, and a lot of fun. An RPG adventure that doesn't feel like it's cut down for the platform. Nice and long

Way. Too. Easy. Also no challenge. Not difficult enough. Underly hard. Can I make this clearer

What could have been a classic game on the PSP is only "pretty good" marred by the difficulty level being set way too low. It's a real pity, too.

Dungeon Siege: Throne of Agony

 

The biggest question I initially found myself asking upon embarking on this handheld entry to the Dungeon Siege cannon was who would actually own a Throne Of Agony? I mean surely if you were in the sort of lofty social position to be required to sit on...

While streamlining the Dungeon Siege experience for the handheld market undoubtedly made sense when it was discussed at design time, the sense of depth and involvement that's been lost in the process leaves a frustratingly shallow game that fails to do...
