Today's official launch also marks the live release of Gauntlgrym, Neverwinter's new twist on level 60 PvP and PvE content, and the new Alchemy profession. It introduces a number of permanent price drops to the Neverwinter Zen Market as well, and comes on the heels of a big balance and gameplay update, which included hundreds of fixes and improvements that were a direct result of Open Beta community feedback and support.

Reviews of Neverwinter are coming in! See what they have to say:

Forbes: 9/10
"The combat is possibly the best in any MMORPG on the market today…"

Escapist: 4/5
"Neverwinter takes the most satisfying aspects of D&D's 4th edition in terms of combat and development, and turns it into a D&D adventure that left me squeeing with the joy of seeing my favorite monsters and mechanics."

Ten Ton Hammer: 89/100
"Neverwinter is a pretty city, and the designers at Cryptic have done much to bring that beauty to life.If you want to experience the Neverwinter,or neverwinter gold,click here"

"Neverwinter is quite possibly the best free to play MMO released in a long time."

    Weird, I thought most people around here hated it.

    ...or, you could just read the review courtesy of this site and its hundred-plus comments.

    So long as we're discussing the game and review scores, Metacritic rates it at 73, with a 5.7 from players.

    Personally, I find them all subjectively horrendous and would advise anyone interested in the game to merely play it. The advantage of a F2P title is precisely that: no barrier to entry.

    I tried the beta and outside of the combat it just felt bleh to me. Maybe I didn't play long enough. Anyway, with Final Fantasy around the corner and now with me trying to learn how to play Witcher 2, there just isn't enough time in the day :-) lol.

    There Is Always Hope!

    I really like this game, but I just haven't found much time to sit down and play it for a few hours. Being that it's F2P, I can just jump in whenever, so I'm not worried about neglecting it for to long. The new stuff sounds neat, and I hope they add tons more content before the year is over.

    Average game at best. Nothing to get excited about to be honest, atleast in my opinion. The combat is pretty ugly too.

    There's nothing wrong with Neverwinter. It is what it is. People around here just expecting too much of it.

    except for the players exploiting the Astral Diamond currency, exploiting the Auction House, exploiting enchant duplication, exploiting dungeons, exploiting the foundry, and exploiting PvP mechanics. Did I forget anything?

    Played to 25 as cleric then lost interest.  Maybe I'll give it another go.  The comment about DnD 4.0 is hilarious!  My tabletop group tried 4.0 once and we were utterly disappointed in how they had nerfed the game so much.  I don't remember a single "satisfying element," and that is why the 3.5 ruleset is still king.  

    If you don't know what I'm talking about, it's like complimenting something for emulating crap wonderfully.  I think Neverwinter  Online is better than the best parts of 4.0.

    The only issue I have with the game is that it rubs your face with microtransactions.

    Take in mind OP registered to this forum just to hupe NWN and then you get such appreciation threads. (obviously)
