DOFUS is a Tactical MMORPG which means that players progress in a real time universe, but when they fight against monsters or against other players, action is turn-based (with specific number of actions each turn). Thus, fights are breathtaking and each move is strategic. [Ankama Studio] Expand

  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. 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.
  5. 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]

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.

Quaint, small download, easy to play, great social element, great battle mechanics. Gets tedious eventually but then all games do. Combat, to me, feels light years better than the vast majority of MMOs, as does the natural feel of the social element. Class! :) Expand

    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.

L'économie ingame et détenue en grande majoritée par des joueurs ayant abusé de failles, du commerce inter-serveur (qui est une belle connerie), utilisant des bot, ou hack.

    Ce qui génère de nombreux problèmes, aucune perspective de tournois pour la plupart des joueurs faute de moyen. Peu d'écoute de la part du support du jeu, et développement du jeu qui s'en fou royalement de votre avis.

    Il y a un pur focus sur l'agent, sur les classes (en jeu) qui pèsent dans la balance budgétaire de l'entreprise.
    Ce qui force et de constaté créer de nombreux écarts et déséquilibre toutes les classes en PVP.
    Et ça ne risque pas de changé, depuis la création du changement de classe, ankama ne fait que ça. Pousser les joueurs à payer un rerool pendant quelques mois, avant de revenir sur le personnage, et en un autre.
    Ainsi de suite.

    Le pvp de ce fait ce retrouve encore une fois totalement menée par les joueurs ayant les moyen de rerool, acheter des stuff pour s'adapter aux méta très rapidement, ou cancer. A l'image de la mise a jour des Prysmaradytes qui a intégrer de nouveau items très fort. Trop fort?, maintenant les joueurs sacrifie leurs dégat, volontairement, pour être tank, car en face ça fait pareil. résultat ? une perte en moyenne de deux tour de jeu, et des abus comme toujours :)

    Le pvm et très bon et c'est la raison principale de ma note. Avec la nouvelle refonte de Pandala de nouveaux monstre sont sortie. Les quêtes sont courte et ça me convient parfaitement. Un fois le jeu réellement compris vous le verrez différemment. Les iA sont simple a comprendre et répète en boucle les mêmes action. Les déplacement un très peu d'aléatoire, et dépendent du votre. N'importe quel boss peut se tomber en monocompte si peu que vous ayant le bon stuff et les bonnes actions quand il le faut.

    ps: vous voulez devenir riche sur dofus ? Devenez éleveur.

    I like to rate things sensibly. So a 6 is by no means bad, but by no means is it any better than 'sort of good'. There's a lot I like to rate things sensibly. So a 6 is by no means bad, but by no means is it any better than 'sort of good'. There's a lot to like about this game - the only implementation of strategy RPG mechanics in an online game, challenging PvP due to this, charming graphics, a multitude of careers, mounts and pets and 12 distinct classes. The average rating comes from the unnecessarily cruel amount of grinding you have to do for levelling up, advancing careers and dropping items to craft equipment. That, and the developers seem a little confused and haven't expanded the game for a year. Overall it's well worth checking out if you're looking for something different. Expand
