Gamers With Jobs have compiled some E3 coverage. Here's what they write about Dungeons & Dragons Online: Stormreach, the upcoming D&D MMORPG from Turbine:
Dungeons and Dragons Online (PC) - My first impression is simply that this is a cash-in game full of rehashed ideas better implemented elsewhere. It was one of those interviews where I really had no idea what to ask the developer, because nothing stood out as interesting. Worse, he had nothing to show me that you haven't seen before. It was as if neither of us could think of anything to say that stands out except, 'hey! It's D&D, only it's online!' The engine was not particularly impressive, the combat was point and click, the treasure system bland, and the environments shown average. If you simply must have an MMO based on the D&D role playing system, then you might be interested in this, but trust me, this game needs a long time to cook before it's even worth a passing glance.
