  1. If you like to easily create uber-characters and enjoy killing clueless noobs, Dofus probably isn't the game for you. But, if you want something that's a little offbeat, with a heavy reliance on community and group goals, you can do a lot worse than spending $7 to see if you like it.

    I must admit that I was a bit full of trepidation when trying out Dofus for the first time, having liked Wakfu so much and being worried that its predecessor would turn out to be more basic or unpolished. I'm surprised and happy to report the exact opposite, and that I like Dofus' fun approach to traditional MMORPG gameplay even more than Wakfu's open-ended sandbox and social features, which is saying a lot.

    Purely as a game, it's one of those titles that takes a little time getting to grips with the controls and the basic plotlines, but it is time well spent that can result in hours of inside-out pant-wearing hilarity.
  4. Despite its eccentricities, Dofus remains a solid and occasionally brilliant proposition for those looking for something different in an MMO.
  5. This may not capture the fancy of hard-core gamers who like to battle mobs in real time, but relaxing into the pacing of the game provides a lightly entertaining experience.
  6. The comic-style and ironic atmosphere are nice, but there are other games of the same genre who are much more convincing.

    While I am all for a rousing 2D game, Dofus gets old way too fast. [Apr 2006, p.78]

    I played this game for years and was very addicted, so there are definitely many, many great things about the gameplay and social aspects. II played this game for years and was very addicted, so there are definitely many, many great things about the gameplay and social aspects. I eventually quit, however, because as you get into the very high levels of the game, there are only two ways to play: sub more accounts and play multiple characters simultaneously to build up your team and conquer dungons; or scrape the barrel and hope your friends have characters that are complementary and can help you finish the requisite dungeon. Since many rare drops are directly related to the zone and monster you fight your options for dropping good loot are limited. Having said that, there's more than one way to get yourself the gear you want. You can try to play the market or level some professions and then charge people for your services. However, all of this is slow, tedious, and plodding labour, ultimately deterring from the fun of the experience. My recommendation: play until you get tired of the grind then find something else :) Full Review »

    This is not an easy MMO. Don't expect to have your handheld by the game much more than the tutorial. The early content won't put up too muchThis is not an easy MMO. Don't expect to have your handheld by the game much more than the tutorial. The early content won't put up too much of a fight. make it to even the mid levels while running content at the appropriate level and prepare yourself for a challenge.

    One thing I do have to say is If you are starting in the English community, beware some of the servers are underpopulated here as of the time of writing this review. Currently, Rushu is the most populous English server.

    I played this game for a lot of years and I enjoyed it very much, I fonded one of the biggest guilds in my server, I was part of the MercenaryI played this game for a lot of years and I enjoyed it very much, I fonded one of the biggest guilds in my server, I was part of the Mercenary clan, and all kind of stuff, I was even parto of the Mod. team.

    I have to say it's a really addicting game with very good social features and that's what differences the game from others. The game itself takes way to long and in order to get more powerful you'll have to start playing with simultaneous accs, wich is boring, because you loose that social touch the game has.

    If you have enough time to play it (I mean like 5 hours free a day minimun) you should at least give it a try, but if not don't bother at all, you'll get bored and end up quiting and playing a more rewarding game, because it will take you a couple of hours to get done only one dungeon, when in any other MMORPG you can do a lot of things in two hours.
