Summary: Anyone interested in MMOs or D&D should try this. It is free and, while it is not perfect, it is very good. Of all the MMOs I've played (WoW, TSM, RoM, etc), including ones released years after this, DDO is the only one that managed to hold my attention. It has the best gameplay of any MMO I've seen. It lacks PvP, but it does have a mature and helpful playerbase. There's plenty of crafting and levels are very meaningful.
Summary: Since it's gone f2p this is the best f2p out there without a doubt- whenever I'm not playing a p2p or a console game, this is my fallback. The sheer variety of quests and goals in this game will blow you away- this isn't a 'grind 50 goretusks' game, every quest has its own story, enemies, bosses, traps and unique feel. This is one mmo that truly doesn't feel like any other.
Summary: Ive been waiting for a long long time for this! I really enjoy the game and Ive been met some really nice people for play with... Of course, you play it Online... If you want to find some fantasy fun with other people, this game is for you... Be a melee warrior, a caster of divine or arcane magic, or a specialist in traps, music or arrows... Just create your toon and have some fun!
Summary: Please note that all bad reviews of this game are circa 2006. It's a testament to the Turbine team of what they have managed to accomplish in terms of turning this lame duck around in the last 4 years. DDO is what it is supposed to be, a jack of all trades type of game. - you can play it solo, duo - you can group - you can raid - you can spend hours playing at time - you can log on and complete a quest in 10 minutes Suitable for all gamers, for all play styles, countless...
Summary: Browsing today I noticed that all the reviews for this product are very old. This product is VERY much alive! The graphics compared to other MMOs, especially WoW, are phenomenal. Lag and crashes are less commonplace than other MMOs (but they do occur). Dungeons & Dragons Online (DDO) has gone to a 'Free to Play' model which gives a pretty large amount of content for a player to do before they need to get anything from the 'store'.
Summary: turbine royally screwed up DDO's release, when it was launched there just wasn't enough content and a lot of people got bored and moved on very quickly which hurt the game badly and it's never really recovered to earn the player base it deserves. Fortunately, the DDO team has spent the last several years adding content as fast as their budget and resources would allow and today there is a ton of high quality content to be had in DDO.
Summary: Fun: This isn't a game that should be played solo, but if you know how to play the game and use the skillpoints/Feats and Enhancements that can be chosen to their best. You can actually solo quests very far into the game, but you will need to use your resources (potions, wands, scrolls...) But the fun comes when you start to play and interact with other players. All quests, except for a very few ones, can be entered with 6 characters.
Summary: Okay DDO is now F2P. The only reason one would buy the game is to either get 30 days of VIP (subscriber) access or to farm TP (Turbine Points). I had to get it because of a special predicament that they do not have customer service for, (sadly they don't give your customer service because you don't pay).
