Drakensang online Review
For more than 25 years, 'The Dark eye' is Germany's most played table Role Playing Game leaving 'Dungeons & Dragons' in the shadow. A PC version was released as a first-person RPG in 2006 called 'Drakensang'. Based on that, Drakensang online lets you experience the epic world of Dark Eye in your browser, playing at the same time with other players around the world.
Getting started with, you have to go through the well-known character creation process choosing one of the three basic classes which (for now) are the pretty standard Dragonknight, Spellweaver and Ranger (more T.B.A.). The world, characters and camera view imediately brings memories of classic PC RPGs such as Diablo and Neverwinter Nights, but polished with a new shiny design.
Find out what you are up against by completing quests and running errands for the townsfolk to earn fame and money. Team up with other players to slay hords of beasts scattered around the land to earn XP or enter ancient dungeons to fight pure evil and discover precious artifacts. Drakensang online's world is divided in 7 kingdoms (more T.B.A.), each with its own atmosphere, quests and unique monsters.
Drakensang online is a classic MMORPG which delivers several hours of hack'n'slash fighting fun. I can't say there are quite unique features or breakthrough ideas in this game, but it definately gives the gamer what he wants. If you are a fan of RPGs, this is the game you want to play while waiting for Diablo 3 to arrive!
