Surprised

JunglecharlyJunglecharly Member UncommonPosts: 167

 This is my first account and post in Mmorpg forums. After being a chronic lurker for so many years i just had to post something about Neverwinter.

I really find it enjoyable, well written, nice combat system and roles, exceptional ost and ambience. The community at the moment as far as i've seen is not that trollish as in other games of the sort. It really reminds me of Neverwinter nights sometimes. The voice acting is decent and keeps me interested. 

Many faults and problems in the game with the cash shop and the fully instanced world but i am used to that sort of thing from the single player Neverwinter games.  

This is not a promotional post and the proof is how badly written it is. I am just a regular mmo player jumping from game to game surprised that neverwinter is my cup of tea.

Am i the only one who thinks this game is underrated?

    I think most people have an issue with end game content (basically just daily quest grinding) but I've not got that far. I've got a level 20something cleric and levelling up it's fun. The graphics are good, the performance is good, there's plenty to do.

    People have very low opinions on Perfect World Entertainment being completely P2W, but in this game I haven't seen it yet.

    I'd disagree on the voice acting. Compared to SWTOR and ESO it's poor. Especially Knox, that actor is absolutely terrible and you have to listen to him the most.

    One thing I don't like is the fixed camera view. I don't know why it's there. I gather you can change it to some degree with console commands, but why go against what people have in almost every other game? It also tends to limit the view of things, meaning you don't get to see what are actually high quality textures mostly.

    It has a lot of flaws, but it can be quite entertaining for a while.

    I revisit it from time to time until I get bored again. (Or annoyed by the blatant tactics it uses to try to get into your wallet)

    I never last long on extremely grindy games, and Neverwinter definitely falls into this category?

    Want to upgrade a companion to a higher rank? Better start farming like a madman for days or weeks on end (depending on the companion's rank), or you can just pay for it. Same thing with mounts and just about everything else.

    It's pretty shabby compared to most MMO's with voice acting. GW2, TSW and Defiance also blow it out of the water. (Along with the ones you mentioned of course)

    No way Jose. It's not a bad game, but the publisher thou..

    It's just a totally P2W game and you have to continuous pay to catch up with the content. The update on enchante upgrade (requiring AS, I played it long time ago where enchante upgrade didn't need AS) is the greatest greedy move on them, making the game completely P2W. Out of all honesty, with my 300 or more dropped into the game, I didn't feel any satisfaction but the despair that I will never catch up with this community and no way like in WoW, where you could actually catch up with core endgame players by lots of, say, flexi or even random.

     

     

    Good game, bad quick money grab module.

    It's fine as long as you're not too obsessed with the end-game gear grind. Which, fortunately for me, I'm not. image

    The game is just too easy. When I play a game for the first time up to level 30  without being killed, there is something wrong.  Just not challenging.

    I stopped playing when I got a "loot" drop that was a cash shop coupon that expired in a few hours.  That was a first for me in any game.

    Combat isn't bad but all other actions outside of combat feel more like I'm playing a phone app game than a D&D related game.

    Me too.  I revisit Neverwinter every five or six months, but my stay is never more than a few days.  Nice game to visit.
