 Very good base game, broken expansion

I enjoyed this game very much. I was going to purchase Space Siege, but then read the poor reviews and opted for DS2 Deluxe via PlayTrade instead. In my opinion it's much more fun than the original Dungeon Siege, because you are more directly involved in the action and all character classes are now useful, with their own strengths and weaknesses, whereas warriors used to rule the battlefield in DS1.
At the core, it's essentially Diablo II on steroids. You have mages, warriors, character advancement, items, magical items, rare items, unique items, set items and enchantable items (yes, loot does play an important part in the game!). There are also pets that can take the place of any NPC in your party and use a different growth system. They are usually less powerful than an NPC but with the perk of a more rapid growth for your character because of the way experience distribution works.
In the end, game mechanics are sufficiently varied to keep you intrigued. Quests are also well scripted and often span multiple levels, rather than following the exceedingly simple formula that is common to these games.
So DS2 in itself might also get the maximum score of five stars. The problems are the somehow dated graphics and a horrible, game-stopping bug in the expansion.
Apparently my saved game got corrupted at some point. I did notice that if I had no room in my party when I first met some NPCs, they would disappear from the game forever, which is not supposed to happen. This may or may not have to do with the problem, but importing my characters to the Broken World expansion caused the game to delete my save file after I tried to change my party formation at the inn. Had I not saved my progress, I would be back to day zero and have to replay the whole game to get to the expansion (of course this would be out of the question). Luckily I started backing up my saved game regularly once I realized you only have one save slot.
Anyway I'll have to create a new character to play BW, lose all the pets I had slowly trained up to maximum levels and those magical items I had carefully selected for my characters throughout the journey. Since a very quick search on Google proves this is an all too common issue with the expansion, and no patches exist to fix the problem, I feel that the game deserves at most three stars. It is still solid fun at a great price, but a bug this serious should not be ignored by the publisher.
