Neverwinter

Auracore MediaWorks
7 September 2013
  • Summary: Neverwinter is a solid gaming experience only slightly marred by some poor design decisions.
  • Pros: Solid gameplay; nice variety of missions; player created content; neatly mixes single player RPG ideas with an MMO.
  • Cons: Runs on fourth edition rules; free-to-play content is intrusive; level-up mechanics are poorly thought out.

Neverwinter

  • Summary: D&D action and instances galore
  • Pros: Nice cinematic feel provided by cutscenes and voice-acted NPCs. Action-based combat is different enough to be refreshing. The Foundry allows players to create their own quests and campaigns.
  • Cons: Instanced content may not be everyone’s cup of tea. Crafting and currency systems are complicated and confusing. PvP isn’t very robust at the current time.

  • Conclusion: Neverwinter is a polished, if uninspiring MMO. There's a welcome fluidity to combat, but it doesn't do anything innovative, taking the successes of Star Trek Online and implementing them in a D&D world, as well as borrowing from other post-World of Warcraft action-orientated MMOs. Ultimately, it'll live or die on the lasting success of The Foundry, which promises potentially unlimited creative content that will let you experience stories far beyond the cookie-cutter...

Neverwinter Review (PC)

27 June 2013
  • Excerpt: Zohar Scourmont had a very long day. He had worked the murder of a Fernor commoner and arrested the kidnapper of the High Judge and helped saved her. He was weary to the bone and heading across a field on his way home. The sun was setting and the field of tall grain lit gold with the last casts of the day’s sunlight. Zohar stopped and turned to look across them, not just to take in their majesty but to take in the new sight.

Neverwinter

IGN
26 June 2013
  • Conclusion: Neverwinter isn't a hardcore MMORPG, nor is it likely to compel you to cast aside your current favorite MMO to devote your full attention to it. But taken in small doses, it's a generally fun and free romp through one of fantasy's most beloved universes, and the player-generated Foundry missions occasionally yield more memorable moments than fantasy MMOs with massive budgets.
  • Pros: Player-made quests, Diablo-esque combat, Great use of D&D
  • Cons: High cash shop prices, Too many instances

  • Excerpt: In my opinion the best and greatest Dungeons & Dragons game was the Baldur's Gate series that successfully managed to combine a number of elements from this pen and paper (PnP) live role-playing game to create a rich and meaningful video game. Although I stopped playing the PnP version of Dungeons & Dragons in high school, this wonderful universe still holds a special place in my gaming heart and thankfully developers Cryptic have managed to recapture the uniqueness of...
