    I was at my local Walmart and almost purchased this game this past weekend. But instead I am still in search of finding Baldur's Gate: ToB expansion pack. But this game did look really cool.

    Can this game be a single player game or does it have to be played on the internet?

    Anyway, yes, Dragonshard is single-player also. Primarily even, considering it's an RTS.

    I got it, actually! And I love it. :)

    The Eberron setting is quite different to me as I'm not familiar with it, but the game is DnD nonetheless. I'd compare it to Warcraft 3 - it has heroes, levels - it's very similiar to WC3. But the great thing about Dragonshard is that you can choose to venture down under the ground, to loot - something entirely new and the very thing that makes it less a clone of other RTS games. I love it so far, haven't played it all that much yet, but what I've played, I love soo much. :) Just wish it was FR though. That would be wicked!

    Great game, thumbs up! ;)

    "I am still in search of finding Baldur's Gate: ToB expansion pack"

    Buy the ToB expansion twice before you even think of buying this game. Maybe, when you can find it for 10$, but even then you can find much better games. If you want a good single player experience you will be disappointed. I hear the multiplayer is good I haven't tried.

    "the game is DnD nonetheless"

    If you like this game, fine, I'm not going to debate whether you like it or not, but it is not D&D. There is nothing in this game that even remotely resembles D&D. The only reason they put D&D on the cover is for marketing purposes.

    I see what you mean, and I agree, but you can't deny it's based upon the setting itself. As you say it's just a "shell" for marketing purposes - there are no rules that resembles the DnD ruleset in any way, so if that's one of your reasons to play it you'll surely be disappointed. I still think it's a good game. Enjoyable for what it is.
