    If you don't need the original D&D rules, Sword Coast Legends offers a lot of RPG fun. The console port isn't great though.

    Please shorten the loading times. Also maybe look into innovating the UI in ways found from other games such as Diablo? And please, in the name of everything that is Holy on this planet, please release a soundtrack and make the soundtrack more frequent.

    Sword Coast Legends is an appealing game but it has too many technical problems which aren’t game-breaking, but can be quite aggravating.

    Sword Coast Legends is a decent game with a compelling story and some rather excellent voice active. It's brought down heavily, however, by excruciatingly long load screens and the chance of hitting a game-ending bug.

    At the price of £15.99, I would suggest that you wait for a sale if you really want it that badly in your collection. As it stands, there are far better games out there worthy of your money.

    It is harder to use than the PC version in DM mode but that is because you are limited to console controls. As has been mentioned the UI couldIt is harder to use than the PC version in DM mode but that is because you are limited to console controls. As has been mentioned the UI could have been better fleshed out. With those negatives out of the way this game is an AWESOME Dungeons and Dragons port to the Xbox one.

    The ability to create content to run your friends through is nearly unique and feels like the tabletop experience without all the paperwork. The nice thing about this game is it come with the monster stats from the Dungeons and Dragons game built in. You won't have to keep referencing your monster manual to create balanced encounters.

    If you play D&D with friends and they own Xboxes convince them to try this out. They will not be sorry they did!

Finding a group has been a challenge however, and I'm debating just gathering my books and dice and dust for an evening of drunkenly filling out character sheets which will never be used at the local tavern over an ale with my real friends.
