Eurogamer has a different opinion, though. Not the best of games, but not a bad one, either, according to this reviewer and it gets an 8, where IGN gave 6.5:

But don't think this means that Dungeon Siege III is a brain-dead game. It's just an adaptive one. Because your character has up to 11 abilities, as well as charged versions of each of those, and each is best used in a slightly different scenario, trying to play Dungeon Siege III perfectly is a totally absorbing dance of glossy particle effects, small victories and even smaller failures.
Not a game worth the full retail price, me thinks, but I may buy it eventually to see how it plays. It's been some time since I played an Obsidian game, I miss them.
