|Hot off the press (or at least the friendly email) comes news of some hands-on impressions of D&DO at ActionTrip. Here's a snip:|
Being a total World of Warcraft whore that I am, I can tell you right off the bat that DDO is a considerably different MMO experience. But before you start the stoning (for pointing out the obvious or leaping to a conclusion that I see this as a negative thing), let me explain that I'm not judging DDO for it, but rather suggesting that the game is much more of a traditional D&D RPG experience. What I mean by that is that the pacing of the game is a lot slower and slightly less accessible to the people who are new to the MMO (or the D&D) RPG sub-genres. Of course, traditional D&D gamers and those of you who enjoyed, say, Bioware's NWN will love this fact, and God knows there are enough of you out there. Myself included.
