DDO or Dungeons and Dragons Online, is one of the best MMORPGs on the market. I say this becuase to be a good MMORPG you need an easy tutorial or instructions to set new comers of the MMORPG genre on their merry way. Also you need to have a fantastic world and should always be adding things. Also you need a nice range of classes. DDO keeps to all of these. Now DDO keeps D&D close to its heart. Sometimes you don't hit an enemy because of a dice roll. No lie there is actually a little dice in the corner that determines, a hit, damage,etc. To make a character you have to tweak its mods and feats and skills (just like the pen and paper game). You get the standard races such as dwarves. Then the classes list is a pretty good size ranging from a fighter to a ranger. I wish the game had a couple more classes, such as a illusionist. Now the beginning of the game is straight foreward. Although the combat takes a lil bit to get used to its very simple and well thought out. Now it takes awhile to get group dungeons crawling adventures. Finding a group is as easy as press ctrl-g. That finds a groups of people ding different quests. The games looks were pretty nice on the eyes and the music was great. Sadly my computer is pretty slow and not very good so I really didn't give the game justice. My only true complaints are is the long loading times between areas. Also when you exit the game in a dungeon, you actually have to start the quest over. Also if you attempt to go solo, its fun but difficult to newer MMORPG players. All in all a great game. If you want a good MMORPG and get the taste of D&D look no further than Dungeons and Dragons Online.
