Expert reviews and ratings

Free to play games are maturing rapidly, with many established titles, like World of Tanks, starting to really polish the genre so that casual and dedicated players alike can play as they wish, either for truly zero cost, or spending money when and where...

Neverwinter is one of the best free-to-play games this year, with its fluid combat, extensive amount of quests, and Foundry tool in which players can create their own adventures. Most importantly, premium points and items don't affect the game for those...

Being this reliant on players to compensate for its lack of creativity isn’t exactly a point in Neverwinter’s favour. Giving them the power to do so, however, is. And that’s something other MMOs need to copy.

Even though Neverwinter doesn’t challenge MMO norms in terms of content structure, it delivers retail-quality gameplay, endless expandability with user-generated content, and a fantastic twist on crafting that had me obsessively checking my crafting queue for hours. With a pricetag of free, all you have to lose is your time...

Perhaps Neverwinter has more potential, perhaps it will grow beyond this, but games can only be reviewed on what they are, not what they might become, and for now the many user-forged forays into fantasy are, just like the rest of Neverwinter, mostly about going to a place, bashing heads in and grabbing swag.

You could say the same about Neverwinter in general, actually: there just isn't much substance here. After 40 hours or so, you've traveled the howling corridors of The Chasm, battled across Rothe Valley's autumnal meadows, and fought winter wolves atop Icespire Peak. It's a shame that the journey doesn't leave you more epic tales to tell.

Neverwinter's combat is very good, but not quite good enough to carry the thin game built around...

It takes a while to get into most MMOs - not many have quite grasped how to immediately engage the player while also patiently teaching them the nuances of their many systems - and Neverwinter is no exception. The first few hours are tedious, mashing...

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.

First thing to get out of the way: this game is not a World of Warcraft clone. Whilst it definitely borrows WoW’s third person over-the-shoulder camera, almost every other aspect of the game reminds me of and action RPG like Diablo 3 or Dragon Age 2.

For a game that I thought might hold my attention for a weeks to a month I found my self firmly glued to my computer chair with that all to familiar needle in my vain, my IV bag pumping in that wonderful drug that can make the weekend pass in the blink of an eye that only a great MMORPG can provide.

What’s interesting, after having taken a character to level 21, is how much it seems to have dragged me in despite failing to meet so many of those anticipations. Neverwinter should have been the fantasy MMO where storytelling was first and foremost, but in this area, at this point in the beta, that’s a mess. Yet I was up until 2am playing.

Neverwinter is off to a promising start. It’s the most fun I’ve had with an MMORPG since vanilla WoW. But if Cryptic and the community keep building on this foundation, this might be the best free-to-play MMORPG yet.

In my opinion, Neverwinter is an enjoyable action-MMORPG, set in the most popular Dungeons And Dragons locale: the Forgotten Realms. The game has a lot of potential, so what do you need to run it? When it comes to graphics horsepower, not much,...

Leviathyn's Neverwinter review begins with levels 1 through 25 as we tackle the intro, questing, combat, skirmishing, PvP, and dungeons.

I have always been a huge fan of single player RPGs, and in particular, invested many, many hours into Neverwinter Nights and its sequel. I have dabbled in MMOs, some for a great deal of hours (World of Warcraft and Guild Wars), others for brief...

Die Welt der "Vergessenen Königreiche" der Kultmarke Dungeons & Dragon hält als Hintergrund für Neverwinter her. Die Zauberpest verwüstete die Schwertküste der Region Torils. Die Stadt Neverwinter wurde erst später durch einen gigantischen Feuerregen und...

Neverwinter is de zoveelste actie-MMORPG voor de pc, maar we raden je toch aan een kijkje te nemen. De mogelijkheid om je eigen verhalen te schrijven en in de game te verwerken, maakt van Neverwinter namelijk een bijzondere ervaring met mogelijk...

Es ist erstaunlich, dass „Neverwinter“ bisher so wenig Aufmerksamkeit zuteil wurde, denn immerhin schickt sich hier ein erfahrenes MMOG -Studio an, eine potente Marke in das viel beachtete Segment zu portieren. Dieses Unterfangen ist im Großen und Ganzen...
