Head over to GamesBeat to read my review of Neverwinter, the new massively multiplayer online game from developer Cryptic Studios and publisher Perfect World Entertainment. I gave it a 70/100.
It feels like forever since I’ve reviewed a role-playing game. One of the last times was when Torchlight 2 released, and that only took 20 or so hours — short for an RPG. This occupied me for a good 60 hours.
It’s a funny thing, but I only usually have the time to finish games when I’m reviewing them. And yes, I write about them every day. It’s also a lot easier to complete an RPG when you’re able to play it consistently night after night. So in a way, for me, playing Neverwinter — my first-ever MMO — was a challenge. Do I still have the commitment to play RPGs, and can I handle an MMO? The answer is yes to both, happily. I’m pretty excited to share this review with you.
So — any questions for me? Ask me anything!
