Yeah, i really wanted to try the multiplayer but heard you can't use your own character if you join a game. Only experienced the single player.
This I find strange though. I actually just finished working on a dungeon crawler called "Pocket RPG", you can view it here:
Dungeon siege 3 does a lot of things right in how much control u have over the character actions and abilities. I love how you can string together moves to form combos but character customization is practically zero.
But in the end I think what matters most is if you had fun, and I did. I had a great deal of it
