Excerpt: I write this review with one word in mind: WOW! Right from the starting page (two fighters and a mage battling a mighty Red Dragon) the graphics reached out and grabbed me. I have it set to the second best graphics setting and it looks great!
PC Review - 'Dungeons & Dragons Online: Stormreach'
15 April 2006
Summary: Adventurers have long travelled to the shrouded continent of Xen'drik to explore ancient ruins and discover the treasures hidden beneath. The bustling frontier city of Stormreach, a cauldron of ambition and secret plots, has grown on the edges of this dark and dangerous continent, safe and secure as...
Excerpt: “Dungeons & Dragons.” When most people hear that it brings to mind generally one of two things: a basement or kitchen tables with friends having a good time while on pizza and soda highs, or a bunch of teenage, pimply faced, geeks pretending to be a level 12 Paladin.
This online RPG lives up to its namesake as far as the quality of its action-packed quests is concerned, but it doesn't have all the features you'd probably want.

Summary: Dungeons & Dragons Online are four words that go great together, and yet this recently released online role-playing game isn't necessarily the dream come true its name suggests. That's not because D&D Online doesn't do a generally good job in its specific areas of concentration; it does.
Pros: Fast-paced, no-nonsense action puts the focus on combat and adventure, Atmospheric narration and other details help make quests livelier, Integrated voice chat makes communicating easy
Cons: Poorly suited for those who prefer to play solo or expect the option, No player-versus-player combat, Doesn't really feel massively multiplayer but still has monthly fees
Conclusion: Though F.E.A.R. is clean of any sex or nudity, it has an extreme gore and offensive language rating. If you can not handle massive, realistic scenes of blood, gore and dismemberment, please think twice about this title because blood and gore are everywhere. Language is also a huge factor.
Conclusion: We weren't sure about D&D at first; we've always soloed in MMOs and for the first three hours we just died alone, over and over. But this is the ultimate group game, and in a group the plot elements, wonderfully varied missions, and teamplay really pay off.
Conclusion: Alors que les possesseurs de Playstation 2 avaient plutôt été déçus par le Stuntman premier du nom, les possesseurs de Xbox 360, et maintenant ceux de Playstation 3, ne peuvent qu’être ravis de voir arriver Stuntman Ignition sur leur console.
Pros: Six films avec six scènes chacun, Ambiance sonore (musique, voix, etc.), Mise en scène de l'ensemble, Mode multijoueurs (local, LAN, Xbox Live), Variétés des véhicules et environnements, Quelques notes d'humour, Nombreux bonus à débloquer
Cons: Quelques ralentissements et bugs d'affichage, Annonce des objectifs parfois tardive, Deux derniers films plus difficiles à débloquer, Inégalité dans les décors proposés
