    Game is free and quick to download (5gb in total). So i suggest try it out and decide for yourself. You got nothing to lose.

    i actually really enjoy it. i have been hopping on to many differnent MMO's after leaving SWTOR and could never get into any of the new titles, but Neverwinter did seem like something a tad bit different. The action combat feels fresh and the foundry system will keep the game alive for long after the devs will. i bought the $60 pack and so far think it will be worth it. i suggest giving it a try during open beta.

    Judging on the state of the game and response from the beta crowd, neverwinter will be a successful game. Definitely worth a try. The combat is very fun. Game is not p2w.

    The best thing I could say is to try it yourself since it's free to download.

    If you want to save on network bandwidth then my opinion is that it's a good game with some great features.  The game play itself is kind've hack and slash and dungeon crawling, but the prospects of the Foundry are near limitless when you factor in player creativity and the like.  Just look at games that are all about player involvement such as Minecraft and other sandbox like games (not to imply that Neverwinter is a Sandbox, but rather the foundry portion of it nearly is by definition).

    It's probably the first true Dungeons and Dragons (MMO) game to come out in that you can actually become a true Dungeon Master of sorts via the usage of the Foundry and craft worlds / adventures for people to partake in with rulesets you create.

    When faced with strife or discontent, the true nature of a man is brought forth. It is then when we see the character of the individual. It is then we are able to tell if he is mature enough to grin and bare it, or subject his fellow man to his complaints and woes.

    Some of the cash shop items are VERY convienient (bags, mounts, character slots, respec tokens, ect), but not absolutely needed or will make you a great player. 

     

    Try the game for yourself come the 30th and see if you feel like its worth playing.

    It's a free and simple game. No reason not to give it a try and decide for yourself. I enjoyed it quite a bit.

    World of Warcraft is the original creation of God. Real Life is in fact a WoW clone.

    Loving the combat system, after the jerky drudgery of DFUW Neverwinter is a refreshing change.

    Its the same old mmorpg fare of course, but its nicely done and its free......can't really knock that.

    Expresso gave me a Hearthstone beta key.....I'm so happy :)

    Starting 30th April, the game will be free to play, just try for yourself as its a quick download.

     

    Keep in mind that to check a game out it requires more then the first 2 hours of gameplay

    It will likely be successful, despite all the negativity Neverwinter might recieve there is the Foundry (even though it is too limited for the true creators of the NWN community , the PW creators) which will likely keep the game going if not the main element that keeps it going.

    Neverwinter is based of a much loved and adored IP.  With that you will have rabid fans foaming from the mouth bashing on it because it didn't live up to their expectations.  People like me, I've done a fair amount of bashing and largely due to how I envisioned it something completely different to it's current abomination form.

    The game is a fun diablo style hack n slash action game.  If your wanting something true to D&D and grew up on earlier editions of D&D then DDO might be a better cup of tea for ya.

    I got a chance to play it at PAX, for a F2P game its very well made. As others have posted above me, I think its safe to say it was a pleasant surprise.

    foundry alone sets this game apart from the rest of the themeparks.. never played a MMO with such a robust dungeon creator that was so well intertwined with the normal questing in the game.. combine that with above average graphics and fun combat makes the game well worth playing.. and its free so why not?

    I angered the clerk in a clothing shop today. She asked me what size I was and I said actual, because I am not to scale. I like vending machines 'cause snacks are better when they fall. If I buy a candy bar at a store, oftentimes, I will drop it... so that it achieves its maximum flavor potential. --Mitch Hedberg

    Not sure what Tera has to do with his post or D&D for that matter.

    The combat is very Tera like.

     

    Depends on what you enjoy . IF you want deep charater customization you will be disappoionted.

    If you want easy jump in and play arcade type gameplay you will like it.

    The first thing I'd like to say about it, because I've mentioned that it uses an action combat system and I've also mentioned Perfect World Entertainment, is that Neverwinter is not another RaiderZ. That is to say, it's not a low budget TERA knockoff with a shitty engine and miserable, bug ridden BAM encounters that serve only to highlight how woeful the hit-boxing and collision detection are.

    Neverwinter is a big budget triple-A MMO. Its action combat is technically sound, fun to use and doesn't actually ape TERAs in any other way than 'also being an action combat system'. Combat animations are wonderful. Cryptic have packed a lot of detail into a relatively low number of frames, which can look AWFUL (see: Guild Wars 2 when it's not hiding the mess with blurs) but in Neverwinter's case serves to accelerate the pace without affecting readability. 
    The violence is sudden, savage, and there's a real feeling of impact strengthened by the way that dispatched enemies ragdoll with believable force in the direction they were last struck. The sound effects, from steel collisions to screams and roars are of high quality and add much to the goings on as well.

    The game is average.  It's a modest amount of  fun and enjoyment, but you aren't really  missing anything unique or special by giving it a pass.  If you have a game that you like playing, I wouldn't drop that for this because it's going to take a lot of time to really get this going..  I'm level 18 atm and so far, the character I'm playing doesn't really feel like my own... more like just some arcade character that I plugged in a few quarters to play.  It's got Champions Online playstyle, without the Champions Online character system, which I guess kind of defeated the purpose of playing a Cryptic game for me.

    If you love Tera, maybe. If you love D&D, Neverwinter Nights or the ability to create your own towns, quests, etc., definitely

    There, fixed it for you.

    Since when is Tuesday a direction?

    peronsally i think the combat is great, but if heavy instancing and quest hubs bother you , ya probably should stear clear of this one, i don't think its awful but i don't think its great either.
