7/10 is the modest score awarded to D&DO at GamesRadar:
We're hoping that the game's flaws at launch - generic character models, an awkward friends system and a tiny map, for instance - all get revised with future updates. Otherwise, Dungeons & Dragons Online feels pleasantly like the game that inspired it, right down to the D&D edition 3.5 rules that govern the hack-and-slash action. If you're not too old to play pretend and mean it, Stormreach proves fun for the whole family. Just be aware that if you don't bring your whole family, you won't have much fun.

ToTheGame also has a review and joins them with a 7/10 here:

Dungeons and Dragon Online: Stormreach, or simply DDO, is an MMORPG based on the famous Dungeons and Dragons 3.5 edition, and the campaign setting Eberron. Turbine has done a great job, with the help of Wizards of the Coast and made a game which fulfills the qualities of the pen and paper version. The fact that they don't have any PvP makes the game less attractive. The quests are hard, and requires groups, which they havenít found a good enough system to actually be useful which makes the quests harder than they should be. They might have put up a channel that is called 'looking for group' or 'looking for players' instead of a social panel where you put in: "I need help with these and these quests", and hope that there is a few people that goes in and looks for it. The game will probably be a big hit among the hardcore DnD fans, but beyond that I'm not sure. If you do like questing more than fighting players however, this is a game for you.
