Dungeons & Dragons Online Review

About.com has written up a two-page review of Dungeons & Dragons Online: Stormreach, giving Turbine's MMORPG an overall score of 3/5. Their conclusion to follow:
Oddly enough, DDO suffers from being a little too much like its PnP counterpart. Traditional D&D was always best among a group of close friends with a similar play schedule, and the same holds true for DDO. With the right group on the right quest it's an exceptional experience near the top if its class. The rest of the time, not so much. It also inadvertently takes the massive out of massively multiplayer. A few years ago this game might have blown everyone away, but given the monthly payment plan and aggressive competition from other online RPGs, the appeal of DDO is bound to be rather limited. On the other hand, if you're disenchanted with the current market leaders in this genre, then DDO certainly deserves your consideration.
