Lan Game Reviews takes a closer look at Turbine's Dungeons and Dragons Online: Stormreach.
As you descend into the murky basement, you feel a slight tingle in the back of your head. You can't tell if the voices are in your head or just beyond the door, but from the many footprints on the dusty floor, you can only venture to guess that the voices are external. Pulling that leaver to open the door might be the last thing you ever do.

Dungeons and Dragons Online: Stormreach is one of the best MMO's I have played in a while. It is a fresh take on genre that is reaching its limits of click and walk away 'action'. DDO not only does MMORPG right, but it does it with style. This game seems to mix GuildWars, WoW, and City of Heroes all into one great game. Though you could say that all those others games were just copying DDO in the first place, since almost every other MMO is based on the D&D dice system.

You begin your venture into the world of DDO with an outstanding character creation system. You can pick almost every physical characteristic of your character, and then move onto his alignment and placement within society. To D&D fans, this character creation is expected, but to MMO fans, it's a breath of fresh air. The only other character creation system that rivals this would have to be City of Heroes...sadly that was the only part of the game that I enjoyed.
