I liked Dungeon Siege 3 immensely, however my taste is not mirrored by many so I can't vouch for that being enough of a recommendation.
A very strong, logical and sensible narrative.
The combat is reactive and quick.
Perks are given frequently and reinforce ones playstyle.
There are a few ways to build your characters, and each character is fairly diverse.
The boss fights are quite spectacular and tough.
Difficulty is on the whole pleasingly challenging, and unlike the original Dungeon Siege the game doesn't play itself.
The plot will react to certain of your choices, and your ending will be different consdiering them.
Lots of loot.
The cast is largely very likable, Reinhart and Katarina especially so.
Linear, maybe a touch too much.
PC controls (M&K) are far more gruelling than a controller.
Not much world reactivity.
Builds arise from skills far more than equipment, unlike D3. Not sure if a con?
The camera angle is a touch too restrictive.
In co-op you are forced to stay far too near your partner.
I don't think the game still has a large fan base, but I only play couch co-op with my lad.
The respawning can be somewhat irritating.
Lots of loot.
Lucas and Anjali pale in comparison to their counterparts, and are a bit too earnest.
Addendum: The expansion is very good, highly recommended if you choose to purchase the game. Just for clarification I haven't played Diablo 3.
