Advantages: Decent gameplay but not fantastic
Disadvantages: Dated gameplay and grahics
Dungeon Siege is a decent game but has not aged well. Released in the early two thousands it is an adventure based role-playing game. It is basically a clone of Blizzard's original Diablo game and does not quite make the same grade.
There are plenty of quests and large map areas to be explored as well as countless monsters to kill. The downside of these large maps is that they seem to get worse graphically the further you get into the game as well as it becoming somewhat tedious to explore these sometimes seemingly endless areas.
Playable solo or in a multiplayer mode, the multi player mode is a little lacking as although it saves your character it does not save the world and your progression through it meaning you can lose exactly where you were up to in multi player games. Also due to the age of the game Microsoft or Gas Powered Games (or whoever actually originally released it) no longer support playing it on there game server meaning it is unlikely you would ever get to play this kind of game unless you have a like minded friend with a copy of the game.
Graphically it is badly dated compared to more modern games (that said it is slightly better graphically then the original Diablo) and since Diablo is more finely tuned game play wise I would advise you taking a look at this game (or its sequel Diablo II) if you are new to this kind of game, for those bored of Diablo though it may be worth a look if you are after more of the same thing with around thirty hours of game play require to reach the end.
Summary: Diablo is a better choice for a retro game then this
