    Despite its PvP shortcomings and current framrate issues, Neverwinter proves to be a solid MMO for Xbox One owners. Although it’s certainly not a hardcore MMORPG, it’s a fantastic starting point for console gamers or those who have little experience in the genre.

    A perfect example of an ugly game that has a lot to offer. If you are not the kind of gamer that judges for the graphics, this game will surprise you.

    If you've been waiting for an MMO on Xbox One, this is an easy recommendation. It's not particularly deep or intricate, but there's enough content to keep you busy for a long while. The frame rates are a significant problem, but probably won't deter anyone from playing the game.

    The technical issues make group play a bit of a chore at times, but the quests are varied and interesting enough to keep you coming back for more.

    A valiant effort, but one that is ultimately let down by a series of technical glitches and a depressingly mute community. It is free to play, though. [Issue#124, p.83]

    Given how disappointingly underwhelming this game is, and how much is locked behind pay-walls and ZEN points (Neverwinter‘s arbitrary currency purchased with real-world money), I pretty quickly decided to play something else.

    okay so it's a free mmorpg that you can play on your xbox one. I feel like thats really the only reson I need to give it a 10. And yes itokay so it's a free mmorpg that you can play on your xbox one. I feel like thats really the only reson I need to give it a 10. And yes it has some really frustrating lag issues (can't tell you how many times Ive died to a dragon because of lag) and the market they have sucks, and everything on the zen market is overpriced, and the epic dungeons are impossible without a healer or tank, but this game is FUN! Ive spent many a hour playing this with my friends, and it's great! especially doing dungeons and trying to beat all your friends in damage. PLUS they have a new event every couple of days it seems, where you can get awsome weapon skins or an uncommon companion, or even a mount. I have alot of games on my one that just sit there because Ive beat them or iv ejust grown tired of them, but I would say I get on never winter just about every day, and not just to do my dailys.

It's combat is fluid andOnce Cryptic releases new content to catch up with the PC version, Neverwinter will be the go to MMO for consoles. It's combat is fluid and fast paced and perfectly suited to the Xbox One controller design and set up and its stunning visuals make for a true hit. Until then however, it feels like you're playing a half-finished game with no real end game available until new content drops besides PVP and some group missions and dungeons to grind for gear.

So far, even the best substitutes have done nothing but make me want to resub more. Neverwinter is no exception. It's pretty good, but I still know WoW is better. Expand

No matter what, DO NOT GET THIS GAME.First off just for a new race a bag and a couple other unimportant things that you will most likely never use it costs 75 dollars. Rip off much? Not to mention if you want a half decent mount the lowest you will pay is 20-25 dollars. Second,The class "Trickster rogue" is the most overpowered class to from level 1-59 (60 level cap). Not only does it have a 5 second stun (Which cannot be broken out of) it has a move which when used with the classes special feature has hit my tank class for 6k at level 49. Rediculous. Also, the class has the chance to get a special weapon which levels with you, making it the most overpowered weapon in the game until you hit 60.

    Basically if you like PvP and want a fair and balanced game do not get neverwinter.
