Average User Score: 6.6Jan 24, 2017Great game, ruined by the stupid people who play it. Be prepared to get stuck on plenty of teams of backwater rejects who make any victory impossible.

Had such issues been fixed at launch as they should have been it could have easily been an 8.6 as the current user score at this time describes but in its current state sadly deserves what I feel is a generous 5 until Blizzard gets its scrap together and puts the broken pieces back in place.… Expand

Nice having a new area to play around in for the duration of the DLC, lots of sidequests to do, NPCs to talk to, gear to aquire and things to do. The end boss is a little frustrating unless you have spent a good chunk of time developing your character and are able to handle combat well enough to dodge and attack in sequence. Other than that a pretty fair ending to a fairly decent series (minus all the unforgivable bugs upon the release of "Vanilla" Witcher 3.)… Expand

Don't play with your contrast or brightness set low, you won't be able to see anything (at least through the first part of the game anyways). The game itself feels like a rehash of Mirror's Edge with a new storyline and nothing much new to add except a bunch of drones in an open world, lots of buildings and mediocre graphics on a next-gen console. Another sad sorry cash grab release aimed at 2008-Era Mirror's Edge Fans that will make you feel stupid later for buying. When I decide to sell any of my games it will be the first to go.… Expand
Average User Score: 4.9Jan 11, 2016This game is a pretty great MMORPG in my opinon (my current favorite while waiting for EverQuest Next to release at some point in the future),This game is a pretty great MMORPG in my opinon (my current favorite while waiting for EverQuest Next to release at some point in the future), although I do have to say it has some room for improvement. As a vested Neverwinter player with a max-level character, WoW Veteran, and former D&D Dungeon master with experience, i'm going to just lay it flat out for everyone on how I see this game and how I feel it has turned out:
Pros: Set in the D&D Forgotten Realms Neverwinter campaign - probably one of the best settings ever made in the D&D Universe. The graphics and gameplay are pretty good, the combat is pretty action-oriented, and the skill choice options are pretty well diversified. the game has a good storyline based on "Modules" (a D&D term used to describe an adventure and plot within a game and campaign setting), there are also a decent number of classes and races to chose from during character creation and the game itself meshes pretty well with anything anyone who is familiar with the Dungeons and Dragons universe would know and remember. As you get farther into the game, you will find it has a pretty solid dungeon, skirmish and PVP queing system and stays fun up through the point you get into endgame content and "Campaigns" (bunches of tasks to complete and zones to do when you get to the highest available level.) Lastly, the game itself is completely free, although getting ahold of highly-desirable items, more inventory and bank space to store your gear, and slots to create more characters can be costly if you choose to pay - but the silver lining is that you can earn in-game currency by completing daily events up to a certain amount and use that currency to pay for everything instead of real money.
Pros: Sometimes buggy, I have found myself quing into instances and gettng forced out because I somehow didn't end up qued into my group. PVP is totally unbalanced, with the best classes being rogue and paladin (rogues will 1-shot with a combo, and paladins just plain aren't killable, sometimes even with the entire team attacking them.) There isn't a whole lot of variety between levels 60-70 for PVE ques, making you feel as though you have entered the Twilight Zone of content famine, although it promises to look better after February 7th (2016) when they release Underdark, the next module of the game. Lastly you can only refine (create) so much of the in-game currency despite how much you earn in total in one day, and have to wait 24 hour to create more if you refuse to use microtransactions to get ahead.… Expand

Done in the sameThis game is severely underrated. It is everything Diablo 3 should have been, minus the horrible incident that was the RMAH. Done in the same style of 3rd person top-down action adventure hack and slash the game has fast and fluid combat and gameplay mechanics, action, roleplay and plenty of humor. Being a game that was offered for free on Xbox Live Gold I was going to write it off as another "keep it around in case I get bored game", but that quickly turned around once I tried playing it for more than a few minutes.… Expand

Halo 5 has stunning graphics, large array of weapons from 3 different races (Human, Covenant and Protean), cool vehicles to drive and pilot, new and old aggressive enemies to kill, fluid and action-packed combat, breathtaking scenery and constant edge of your seat action, and lastly (but not least) our old hero Master Chief (John-117), his team and the new friendly-to-rival Fireteam "Osiris" constantly involved in an edge-of-your-seat gripping and twisting plot. In summary, since Halo 4, 343 Studios has taken the aging Halo series and shown us they can do, and have done a better job than Bungie ever did or would do with it. Thanks for breathing new life into an old favorite guys!… Expand

Was extremely excited to get this game, but I realize after the lackluster product that was ESO came out I should have been more carefully evaluating the fact that Bethesda has taken a steep downhill dive in the last year or two. The game started out good, got through the intro scene, character creation and beginning of the questline and plots involved in the first part of the game, then BAM, right into a wall of bugs on the second chapter of quests. NPCs won't go where they are supposed to go, causing you to become stuck and unable to progress in the questline. Looked online and was told its a known bug and you have to reload from a previous save. What? Wasn't there just a 500-something MB patch just after release? And this wasn't fixed? *sigh* Really? What kind of other bugs did I miss just before you patched them out?
This is the kind of nonsense we are getting from the game industry these days. Rush, rush, rush a product and just work out the bugs later while you make a profit. It is utter nonsense, and EA, Bethesda, CDProjektRed as well as most of the other "cutting edge" next-gen developers are guilty of it. Gamers should be more aware of this alarming trend and start responding by not purchasing games until all the kinks are worked out. Why should I have to reload a game and start over just because you didn't bother to take an extra couple of months to work everything out before release? Total utter nonsense Bethesda. Fix it, like yesterday... before relase. I'm sure your bottom line will thank you the next time you bother to work everything out before it's too late and you lose your gamer fanbase because they write you off as yet another company that is only out to make a profit at our expense.… Expand

A game with many different mechanics and legendary weapons to collect, and a storyline that could be found it "Grimoire Cards" on the Bungie website as you played though the game and fought the "Darkness" (the evil races of aliens bent on continuing to ravage the already destroyed world and solar system we had colonized in the future), Destiny became a breath of fresh air that many sought in a market of stale rehashed games and game genres. It was everything we wanted. Or was it?...
The cons: When dig below the surface, you see how poorly this game was actually handled. Initially, th're was a light-level system past 20 determined by your gear confusing many on how to get levels above 20. This was not so bad, until you started raiding and ended up in an environment where "if you haven't done it, you can't join our raid". Although there is a great queing system for PVP, lower-level PVE "strikes" (akin to "dungeons" in modern day MMOs), there is no system for quing raids. Although many would scoff at letting in the masses into high-level content, the truth is many players including myself quit playing once we hit raid level due to the lack of being able to get in for not having done it. So how do you get experience without having experience? You don't. Go PVP or something for some crap gear unless you are lucky enough to have a set of buddies who will give you a "Sherpa" run through raids or start a "Trials of Osiris" (Arena PVP) team with you to get something better than what normal content offers. Other than that, Game Over. Like the job market, this game is at its core, broken.
Summary and Rating: Bungie makes great broken games and over-charges for DLC. After investing so much time and effort to be stopped short by Bungie, I feel they deserve less than 0, unfortunately Metacritic doesn't allow me to give them a negative score for wasting my time on this horrible game.… Expand
