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.

  • 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.

Neverwinter review

GamesRadar
26 June 2013
  • Conclusion: "...enormously fun at launch." "The cash shop...sells non-essential but very useful items...at some relatively steep prices." "There’s no denying that Neverwinter is derivative."
  • Pros: Finely tuned action combat, Deep character customization, Convenient access to lots of activities
  • Cons: Generic, stock fantasy setting, Lack of innovation, Repetitive questing

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...
  • 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.

UPDATE: Neverwinter (PC) Review

23 March 2013
  • Summary: Overall, is a great MMO title for PC players wanting something new. It’s easy to waste a few hours in the game and feel like you’ve made progress with a few levels or a dungeon. It contains many of the MMO mainstays, but offers enough changes and simplicity for veterans and newcomers along to pick...

  • Excerpt: Star Wars: The Old Republic, Rift, The Secret World, The Lord of the Rings Online – they all have one thing in common: they were once on subscription models and have since gone free-to-play.
  • Pros: Game patches on the fly, making for smaller version patches, Dodge mechanic makes for an active combat sequence, The Foundry is revolutionary, HUD items help players keep the story moving forward, Graphically solid.  Even pretty at times., Hourly quests encourage participation at all levels
  • Cons: Player armor variety needs expansion – almost all bandits look like Zorro, Crafting can be exploited, Chat is nearly all player-spam, Lack of PvP options and balance – this needs remedy for F2P to be successful, AFK players in PvP

Dungeons & Dragons: Neverwinter

SplashGames
7 January 2014
  • Conclusion: Wirklich schick und mit interessanten Ansätzen wie der Foundry für von Usern erstellten Content. Leider verhindern die ewigen Ladezeiten, ein unausgereiftes Free-to-Play-typisches Belohnungs- und Verkaufssystem und mangelnde Freiheit bei der Charakter-Entwicklung, dass Neverwinter bei den ganz...
  • Pros: Schick gestaltete Stadt, Mounts und Charaktere, Imposante Render-Sequenzen, Foundry als Quelle für immer neue Inhalte, Schnelles Kampfsystem
  • Cons: Starre Charakterentwicklung, Ewige Ladezeiten, Irgendwie doch Pay to win
