The Xplosiv edition of Dungeon Siege : Legends of Aranna is available on Amazon. This is the version that I have and it is a standalone copy (i.e. it has the original game as well so you don't need to get that to run it. I actually have the original separately as it happens) Not sure if that is the case for all editions so be sure to check.

Only played the opening but I have to admit that I'm impressed at how much it still feels like an Ultima game, even in the Dungeon Siege engine. There is a reference to the events of Ultima 5 (which I played way back when on the Commodore 64. Yes, I'm THAT old ) so a bit of background reading might be helpful.

For anyone that is unsure, I think the resemblance to the old Ultima games is a good thing. There are reasons why these games are classics.

A thread most controversial, that’s what I want to start
Full of impassioned arguments, of posting from the heart
And for this stimulation all will be thankful to me
On come on everybody it won’t work if you agree
