Heroes of Neverwinter: A Game Review.

I was offered the opportunity by our Webmaster to be a beta Tester for this game a few weeks before it was released to the public on Facebook as long as I wrote a review and posted it on the Inn, so here goes.

As a game overall its not bad, it has good and bad points and though it’s no Dragon Age or Mass Effect it does let you do more and get into it better then some of the other Facebook games I have tried to my dislike such as Farmville, Treasure Madness, The Sims Social and a few others. It is a single player game and not an MMO, is easy to learn and pretty much pg rated in violence.

You can have a party of four characters of the races of Human, Eladrin(Elf), Halfling or Dragonborn (my favorite due to its breath weapon attack) and four classes Fighter, Wizard, Cleric and Rogue recruited from friends that play and have their own characters or gain them from Jerith the recruitment gentleman in the Beached Leviation, the Town Tavern. Once you have a party of 4 hit the town’s meeting board at it’s center, pick an allowable mission, each mission has 3 difficulties, and off you go.

As for other game features you have your house that has a chest that normally once a day allows you to pick and get a random gift and pick up any gifts left by friends or other players. However here is the first thing I dislike about the game, as any time you open a chest or gain a mission treasure it’s a random pick from 10 hidden tile choices. You can purchase or gain Potions of Luck to reveal the tiles but each tile uses 1 Potion so its really a waste of time to do so. Many times I have picked a tile to gain maybe 5 gold when there was a better weapon or suit of Armor I could have used more, once revealed. And while on this point the exchange rate in the Mercenary Arms Deport and the Tarmalune Tradehouse for items bought or found is a joke.

Example you buy a suit of +1 Distorting Cloth armor for 325gp’s or find a suit of Chain that sells in the Arms Deport for 275gp’s but when you try to sell it back or having found it on a mission to the stores you get maybe in exchange 25 gold pieces back. So if you bought the Cloth armor for 325 you only get 25 back, a loss of 300gps!!.

Overall to finish my review the game is ok if you need something to do to pass the time on a rainy day or when bored, it should keep you interested. If your looking for intense action, lots of blood or an in depth storyline this game ain’t got it, after all it’s on Facebook. If you want more I say try Runescape, Dungeon&Dragons Online or any of the 100 other free/pay to play online games or just buy a PC game. Me personally I’ll continue to play just to give me a break from all the other games I do own.
So have fun, keep coming to the Inn, and feel free to leave your own comments below.
Thanks.
