  Dungeon Keeper - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The game puts the player into the role of the "dungeon keeper": instead of valiantly storming a dungeon like a hero, killing monsters and taking the treasures, the player builds the dungeons, recruits the monsters, sets the traps, and fends off the (computer-controlled) heroes that regularly attempt to come in.
The Deeper Dungeons is an expansion pack that was released in November 1997.

 Dungeon - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
A dungeon (derived from the Old French donjon, from the Latin dominus, "lord"), in its original medieval usage, was the keep, the main tower of a castle which formed the final defensive position the garrison could retreat to when outer fortifications were overcome.
The dungeon was a safe, if not comfortable, place to keep prisoners and was used mainly for this purpose, once more luxurious housing for the lord of the castle was constructured.
In 1613 Anton Praetorius described the terrible situation of the prisoners in the dungeons in his book Gründlicher Bericht über Zauberei und Zauberer (Thorough Report about Witchcraft and Witches).

What this all boils down to is that you become the "Dungeon Keeper." As the dungeon keeper, it is your responsibility to construct a dungeon that will not only flourish in riches, but one that will attract the most evil creatures.
Once inside a dungeon, you begin at its center, which is occupied by the Dungeon Heart.
From the Dungeon Heart you will expand your dungeon by creating tunnels and rooms that will be occupied by the many inhabitants that travel into your dungeon.

There was a time in a spider-filled dungeon when I simply walked my team into a huge, infested room, filled to the brim with baddies, and left the computer to get dinner… only I forgot to pause it.
Dungeon Siege also offers a solid multiplayer option that allows people to take one of their party members to fight online, but it is not nearly as well implemented.
Gameplay-wise, dungeons begin to fall for quantity, rather than quality, and you spend way too much time killing hundreds of the same monsters over and over again.

 Dungeon Siege - Review
Dungeon Siege's story is plausible enough - but its purpose is to provide the background for the environment that the main character and his party will adventure through.
Dungeon Siege's development team, spearheaded by Total Annihliation veteran Chris Taylor, was very insightful in creating a graphics engine that would provide for an impressive amount of detail that would work with a large amount of PCs, yet still be able to milk every ounce of performance out of some higher-end boxes.
Dungeon Siege has the impressive feature of 'seamless' gameplay - load time between towns, castles, dungeons, and caves is almost non-existent.

 GameSpy.com - Reviews
Dungeon Siege, his highly anticipated hack and slash action title, proves that it is still possible to be original even when setting a game in an all-too-familiar fantasy world.
Instead we are introduced to Ehb, an entirely new land of Taylor's creating, one that has the elements we expect, such as the everlasting battle of good vs. evil; along with dozens of unique settings that are ripe with magic, filled with adventure, and packed with hordes of treasure for a daring party of heroes.
Secondly, since Dungeon Siege was unveiled to the press nearly two years ago, it has been highlighted that this is a seamless world without loading screens.

 IGN: Metal Dungeon Review
Metal Dungeon is the latest Xbox RPG and while it offers up a few promising ideas, it's one of the least appealing RPGs I can remember playing.
That's not entirely necessary to have a good RPG, especially since this is focused on dungeon crawling, but the total lack of story, solid presentation, and character interaction puts all of the weight of success on the merits of the dungeon crawling aspects.
Dungeon crawl is a perfect description for this metal monstrosity.

Having said that purists might at first find Dungeon Siege's unique approach very different than what they are used to but they would certainly find it impossible to deny that its one of the most accessible and enjoyable RPG titles ever released.
The focus on action means Dungeon Siege isn't quite as wordy as the last RPG blockbuster to hit the PC (Baldurs Gate 2) but thats not to say it lacks a suitable back story.
Dungeon Siege wears its influences quite openly and proudly and from the moment you start playing they are fairly obvious.

World dungeons, such as Medivh's Tower, the Westfall Deadmines, and the Scarlet Monastery, are grander in scale than micro dungeons and are specifically designed for more epic encounters.

 Dungeons & Dragons Online: Stormreach Community Forums - Devs, how do you make a DDO dungeon?
Once the pieces are made, a designer (or sometimes an artist) will pick a basic dungeon and one or two sets of cultural items, and assemble marshmallow-volcanic pterodactyl-infested caves, or space-alien-Aztec hives overgrown with mushrooms and infested with zombies and their ziggurats.
The typical dungeon goes through several people’s hands before it is finished, getting reviewed, re-arranged, rethought, relit, stocked with monsters, decorated with doodads, lined with traps, treasure, and other yummies, and otherwise adjusted for maximum fun.
The construction of landscape areas differs only in that instead of dungeon cubes, there is a ground plain that is sculpted and has textures applied to it by the worldbuilder.

Dungeon Siege comes from the mind of Chris Taylor, the driving force behind the critically-acclaimed strategy game of several years ago, Total Annihilation.
Its world is populated with 3D landscapes of varying elevation that give rise to such nice views as vistas of valleys below a path along a cliff's edge or a waterfall plunging into a gorge, although a perpetual fog keeps players from seeing too far into the distance.
Dungeon Siege takes the very practical approach that your characters will improve in the skills they actually use.

 Featuring Dungeon Siege Review at ActionTrip
Transitions between exterior landscape and interior dungeons are flawless and uninterrupted.
The new features with gameplay that set Dungeon Siege apart from the aforementioned Diablo is the automatic attack disposition (rather than having to click on each individual foe to attack), and an in-game pause feature that allows for quick weapon/spell switching, formation swaps or potion imbibing.
Especially considering that the game world of Dungeon Siege is vastly more expansive than any of the Diablo II acts, and losing a lower-level character in a high-level dungeon can prove deadly - and costly.

To escape from the Dungeon, you must play a series of cards, starting with 10 and progressing down to 2, laying each card adjacent to the last one played.
If you are forced to retreat, or part of your dungeon collapses, you may branch from the second lowest value card you have in play.
For example, if your opponent has progressed from 10 through to 6, you may play a 6 to his or her Dungeon and collapse the passage; the pair of 6s is then discarded.
