Gameplay Monthly has conjured up a review of Dungeons & Dragons Online: Stormreach, giving the MMORPG an overall score of 8.8/10.
Dungeons and Dragons Online: Stormreach is a wonderful title. Not without its flaws, but having such merits that it can go far, this is one amazing game. So if you're interested in it, you need to ask yourself if you are willing to try a game that can only be played online and there's no soloing in it. No crafting either, and lacking monks and druids (two of the more popular D&D classes). Apparently they do plan to add them later via patch though.
Now, if you're up to dungeon crawling in authentic D&D-like adventures with friends or don't mind joining with strangers (who will soon become friends anyway in the course of your adventures), DDO's the real deal. Full on multiplayer bliss without the silly grinding, making even lower levels exciting rather than mundane. This IS innovation within the MMORPG genre, and I'm extremely interested how it fares considering it's removed everything that's boring in an MMORPG, but which so many genre fans consider to be the addicting aspects.
