Dungeons and Dragons without character personalization.
Lots of barrel smashing, and lots of bugs. Inventory window and item descriptions were broken last time I played it.
I was so disappointed with this game that I threw it in the trash.

this is not the D&D we used to play...

Game is a mess. Had to edit an INI file to fix buggy textures. Had to edit an INI file to set my resolution. Interface kerning issues. Multiplayer, screen sharing aside, doesn't work. Ending is terrible. Got trapped by NPCs once and had to start a mission over.

I still liked it, though.

No game-breaking bugs. Music and ambience were solid. Tight combat. Skill tree was passable. I was actually pretty bummed when it was over. I would have sunk some more time in for sure.

Worth a play if you like the genre.

Good old school D & D rpg. Muted color scheme, but good graphics. Simplistic charater choices. Nice plot.

This one I bought retail and was glad I did, since I beat it 6 times over in a month and was able to sell it on. It's worth 5 buck max.

So, I played this entire game through from start to finish. I was really looking forward to playing this game, because I am a fan of the actual roleplaying game. To say the least, I was thoroughly disappointed.

The game suffers from lighting errors early in the game, which already establish a bad image for the rest of the game. The annoying lighting errors aside, the actual graphics of the game aren't horrible, but aren't impressive either. I recall some texture errors on armors, in which a glitchy texture covered the entire armor set. In addition, I also recall many of the armor models being reused, so quite a few of the armor sets look the same.

The actual game play is accurately described in the description as, "hack and slash", so I can't complain about the mostly tedious game play. There really isn't much room for character development, which is limited to four different classes, each with a set race. I will however say that despite limitations, the concept of leveling up, and upgrading your equipment, is what keeps the game playable.

As for the actual storyline, I won't spoil any of it, but I will say that in my opinion, the storyline isn't satisfying and the final boss fight is nothing short of frustrating and redundant (and for me, one of the lowest points of the game).

If all of the bugs were fixed, and there was more room for character development, then with some expansions onto the actual content (like maybe a sandbox mode or more of a storyline, because the actual game is very short), then this game would be a decent game. However, at its current phase, I cannot say I would recommend it, and overall I was disappointed.

personally i like this game, because of the co-op, but since GamesSpy closed down in 2013 this is no longer possible. therefore i can not advise anyone to buy this game, unless someone makes a fix.

Avoid this game, the campaign is short, there are lots of bugs, combat is repetitive and the graphics are dated.

One of the worst games I have ever played. Should be called Buggerdale.

Pre-Release Review
This has got to be one of the worst games I have ever played, and I've played some bad ones. The game play in clunky, there's no real diversity in the mobs you fight, and the ending is just...well...awful. Do not recommend anyone wasting money on this game.

This game is seriously broken and way too difficult. It takes away from the fun. It's also very bland and boring. I highly recommend you NOT buy this game.

If you're looking for a decent coop RPG similar to this game, try Lord of the Rings: War in the North.

Like most people already wrote, i really can support theier views.
It's the most broken/buggy game i tried since a long time(tried it on release, and now gave it a chance again). Many graphic glitches, crashes, sometimes broken quests etc..
Also generally this game is very unbalanced/linear and get's boring very quick.
Now additionally, since Gamespy is dead, the game even hasn't any multiplayer anymore!

DO NOT BUY. Not even at 75% off. I had lots of texture issues. The friend I bought it for to play multiplayer with had install issues. No communication with other players in multi, not even text. The studio is toast so no patches. I wish I could get a refund.

Play Dungeons and Dragons Online instead.

I really wanted to like this game but with it just comes off as really uninteresting and slow. I admit, I've spent very little time with this game but every time I try it, I can barely get past the tutorial. The graphics are very dated, and though skills and things look fun, trying to play this with a mouse and keyboard seems like they didn't really want it played that way.

ultimately the worst game i have ever wasted money on. only slightly more entertaining than constipation and a damn sight worse than bankging your shin on a coffee table on a really cold day...

I've tried three times to play through this, only making it to the end on my final attempt. This game is poorly written and very buggy. Half the equipment does not load textures properly, so expect to be clad in nasty blue if you want the best equipment. The ending was so bugged that I read several articles and watch multiple YouTube videos on how to get it to complete, and I still couldn't finish. I could beat the final boss, but the game would always crash before it would save my victory. This game is just awful. It captures none of the magic of Dungeons and Dragons. Stay away. Free is too much to pay for this game. You'll never get the life you waste on it back.

I definitely seem to be in the minority with this game, but I really enjoy it. Other than an odd bug that happened towards the end of the game when my primary and secondary weapon buttons on the mouse got reversed and I couldn’t change them back, I never really experienced any problems. Is the game the greatest thing since Swiss cheese? No, but if you can get it on sale, I think it’s definitely worth it. I just finished my first play through with the fighter and plan to go back and try someone else. Don’t go in expecting the world and you will definitely get your money’s worth of enjoyment.

An excellent simulator of being a sentai member accidentally marketed as a Dungeons & Dragons game, D&D: Swordville is a delightful game to spend a little time playing, especially for those who enjoy accidentally selling off their entire inventory when attempting to scroll down a merchant's inventory list.

Considered a game of the year 2011 by such respectable institutions as Wikipedia and Metacritic, this is a title definitely worth picking up if you find it on sale for at least $20 off the cover price.

(Note: I haven't beaten this game and likely will not until/unless I try it on a different computer, because it started crashing on startup after my first two play sessions and has continued doing so ever since. That... pretty well fits with how well the game was working before that, but still.)

This game is a rip off even during a summer sale. It's just terrible, bland, and has always suffered from major bugs.

Baaaad dnd license cashgrab. Looks bad, plays bad, repetitive, not challenging, boring, no story, little action. Bugs here and there, not much to do except keep playing on and on. We finished this coop, but it was not worth the little money that we paid.
