Average User Score: 6.0Aug 23, 2013Firstly I would just like to say that I have over 400hrs logged into this since beta so it pains me to be posting this as a ZERO review but it needs to be done.
On the first day of its long waited module 1, Cryptics' Neverwinter Online witnessed a huge wave of exploit which allows a precious epic item to be obtained at 1/20 of its original market cost, a bug that has been reported on its own test server 6 days prior to the launch, but received no attention from the devs. After the incident, Cryptics did not perform any rollbacks and expressed no intention of taking any sort of measures against the exploiters, neither are they willing to track down the exploited epic items.
This has led many players like myself who have supported the devs/game to feel totally frustrated, furious in some cases.
Months of grinding and were just told that cheating is fine:/
Well save your money and your time folks as its clear that as long as PWE/Cryptic are making a then they don't care what the players do...

Great idea, well presented in text but nowhere near whats advertised as the actual product.
No castle building! 1 click and it auto builds, yawn...
MMO? really, i dont consider having people just in the chat window or having to search for battles via a matchmaking system as an MMO so yet another lie.
Persistant world? yes for you but each person has their own persistant world and you dont actually share one.
I havent even scratched the surface of the falsehoods in this game or started on the bugs which there are plenty.
Apparently since the original release some 4 years ago the devs have released over 50 patches something which i would seriously call into question considering they still havent fixed the coding problem between resources & village population? Yes thats right, you want to add some wood via the market!! Oh no you cant as your village pop is maxed, thats right not your storage your pop.. i mean come on, 4 years an that glaring error is still there?
Also the mods in game help with the obvious q&a's but when faced with a question about probs like that, they just ignore you, no advice on ask support or anything just ignored.
Add to that a dev/mod by the name of konstantin stated in chat 'that he cant believe how stupid people are buying crowns when they dont know how to use them' Great stuff!!!
I could carry on and actually write something worthwhile about this game but i cannot waste any more time on them.
They orginally stickied the topic of 'new metacritic review' on the steam forums but that has now been taken down due to bad reviews..
Keep hiding fellas an taking the cash...… Expand
