Game Apex reviews Turbine's Dungeons and Dragons Online.
Dungeons & Dragons. The name alone is infamous. Since 1974 Dungeons & Dragons (affectionately referred to as D&D most of the time) has spread around the globe being as the first RPG (Role Playing Game). As such it is the great great great grand daddy of all RPGs you see on the market today. It started with D&D. Creating a living online world based on this popular game would be no small task.

Turbine is the developer of D&D Online (called DDO for short) and has had previous experience in the medieval/fantasy area of MMORPGs. Turbine is responsible for Asheronís call and itís sequel, Asheronís Call : Dark Majesty. Publishing was handled by the legendary company, Atari. Atari has been in the game biz for well over 30 years so they need little introduction. I am sure that many pen and paper players of D&D were salivating at the mouth when they heard the news about D&Dís upcoming release. I know that my husband was pretty pumped about it for a while.

Other recent games based on the D&D realm were not very well received as each game had glaring short-comings. Could this game be THE ONE to catapult the realm of D&D into the digital realm? Turbine and Atari sure hope so.
