“this is the ultimate group game”
8/10 – Eurogamer
“The goal of D&D Online: Stormreach was to recreate the heady thrill of a well-sculpted dungeon crawl in mom's basement, and to that end, Turbine has succeeded beyond expectations.”

Quite possibly the most satisfying MMO I've played. Realistically you need a nice diverse group to tackle the dungeons that are built. You'll need a theif to go off ahead to disable the traps. You'll need a healer and a tank.
The community is fantastic! You only make it through by helping each other so getting a party going is a cake walk.
Just give it a try, you might like it.

Don't believe the 7 1/2 hours on record. I've been playing this game on and off (mostly on) for all of it's existance. I like it. Try it, you might like it too... I've had a VIP subscription until recently, and the change over to FTP has proven to be a little painful, but I'll get there. If you don't want to pay you will have to grind and grind a lot. But it is possible.

The Best [Free to Play/Pay to Play] Game in existance currently!

Alright so to start off this review lets talk about what the game of [DDO] actually is.
[DDO] Is a F2P hack n' slash style MMORPG with a dungeon crawling theme to it. The game has quite a bit of Pay to progress content that players can either choose to pay in order to get it, or use the "favor system" in order to get content for free just by playing. The game also offers many elements that help the replayability immensley, which I will talk about later



PROS & CONS

PROS
1. You can attain all of the content for FREE.
2. You can solo and or group in the game if you want to.
3. The game has immense customization, meaning that you have the ability to build your character completely different than other players every time If you want to
4. The game has a system in which you can True Reincarnate once you reach level cap. This means that you will go from level cap back to level 1, with benefits from your previous (life).



CONS
1. STUDY STUDY STUDY - - Unless you really enjoy studying to better understand a game in order to become the best, then this part is a CON for you. Studying can be VERY beneficial in this game, however it can be the down fall of this game for many players as well.
2. PvP - - There is PvP within this game, however it isn't really good. If you are looking for a PvP based game, then I advise you to go to another MMO.
3. Groups - - This game certainly isn't for everyone, it takes a bit of work to get into, so finding groups to play with can be challenging. You have to put yourself way more out there, in order to find other players to talk to/group with.
4. GRAPHICS - - Now I personally dont mind games with bad graphics, however some players might. This games graphics can be hard on the eyes when players are used to games such as... (Skyrim, Blade & Soul, Black Desert, etc)
5. GRIND - - This game is a major grind, since the entire goal behind this game is to utilize the (True Reincarnation system). If you dont wish to utilize that system, then you are better off playing something else.


Looking at the Pros/Cons you might be wondering, "Why...? Why would this guy recommend this game to me?"
Well I will tell you. This game may be finicky, it might require a bit more time invested into it in order to enjoy it, however this game has 2 essential elements that many other games lack.


1. Character Difference
2. Reason to continue playing that character


A lot of the MMOs out there these days lack in both of those areas... With [DDO], You will be able to differentiate your character by selecting things such as, (Race, Class, Alignment, Feats, Skills, Enhancements, Weapons, Armor, Stats, Selecting up to 3 different classes, etc.)

You will also be able to continue to improve upon that character by following through with the (True Reincarnation system). This will make it so a level capped character can go back to the beginning with benefits acquired from your past life.

These 2 elements is what makes [DDO] superior to games like [World of warcraft] For example.
What is it that players from [World of warcraft] do once they reach the end game area?
They get the best in slot gear, then what do you do? They might do some PvP. Then what do you do? They get gold capped. Then what do you do? The game is pretty much dead for you after that right? At least... unless a new update/expac comes to pass perhaps. Yes, [DDO] does get more updates to the gear, and if you dont like to grind, then this game definitely is NOT for you.


Now, im not the best at writing reviews however, I certainly recommend to anyone that is seeking a new MMO, to try out [DDO]. The game is definitely worth a look, and it wont cost anything to just download it and hop in for a bit guaranteed :).

You can really be whatever you want to be in this game. However there is very very little handholding during a lot of it. There's a lot of things that the game has that require you to do your own research to make your characters.

No other MMORPG like it.... I love everything, but especially how dungeons are these deep, dark places with tons of different monsters, UNIQUE quests, class customization is insanely versatile, and combat is engaging and intelligent! The only con is the player base is pretty low, so groups are hard to find. Other wise I would highly reccomend this game.

Last week, I would have recommended this game to anyone who wanted a hack and slash romp in a Dungeon's and Dragons setting and in fact had; this week the twenty first update forced users to accept Akamai Netsession with an End User license agreement that says that Akamai can - at any time - turn on funtionality that would make your computer part of their Akamai content distribution network.

I can not recommend that anyone install the game with such software forced upon the user especially with alternative distribution methods available to the developers.

Ok, the game's been around a decade. How many other games can claim the same longevity? It's D&D and set in the Eberron Game Setting. Only thing missing is honest-to-The Sovereign Host goblins and Kalashtars... 9-1/2 Halflings out of 10.
