Dungeons & Dragons Online: Stormreach
Review
The latest in a long line of Dungeons & Dragons PC adventures, MMO role-player Stormreach brings a new swashbuckling dimension to the traditionally leaden action without sacrificing the depth and scope that made the board game a geek classic.

Unlike the turn-based, dice-rolling D&D rucks of old, Stormreach allows players to roll, sidestep and block during combat, making for more engaging and thrilling battles; a welcome move given the meanagerie of hostile creatures you’ll encounter when exploring the game’s gloomy dungeons.

Despite this, players weaned on the board game will feel at home as Stormreach encourages you to team up with other warriors online to tackle quests, punishing anyone who tries to go it alone with a swift and inevitable death. All the statistics usually associated with hard-core D&D games are also in place, giving players a chance to evolve their hero from underpowered rookie into dragon-slaying bad boy.

Granted, the game doesn’t boast the incredible freedom of Guild Wars or the chance to battle other human players for kicks, but in staying true to the spirit of Dungeons & Dragons while experimenting with the familiar formula, Stormreach will delight old hands and newbies alike.
