Whenever I get an ARPG itch I go back and play Dungeon Siege 2.

I don't know why that game doesn't get more credit. It was everything Diablo 2 was and more, just without

Sacred 2 and the TQ expansion were good, but they just don't draw me back like DS2 does.

Putting dungeon siege and diablo in the same sentence is laughable. DS took the auto-combat route, Dungeon siege 2 copied all that MMO AI controlled combat shit that didn't exist in diablo. The dungeon siege games were games you watched more than you played. What the original DS had going for it was the atmosphere and the unique way skills leveled up. Dungeon siege 2 was a giant snorefest and broke everything that was good about the first one. DS1 was alright because it sat on the knife's edge of player participation and novelty, DS2 was just broken on such a fundamental level.

Well, that your opinion, but many of us here actually enjoyed DS2 and still do. As for the auto combat, that was done purposely because of the sheer amount of enemies you had to deal with at one time. it was way too hard to have to manually attack everything. And apparently you didnít look at the option very closely. You could turn off the auto attack at any time.
