All in all Daggerdale was a pretty good game that was definitely worth the fifteen dollars and I consider it better than most games around that much. The menus felt more like they belonged on the console however.

Das Entwicklungsbudget von Daggerdale ist wohl komplett für die teure D&D-Lizenz draufgegangen, anders kann ich mir die Lieblosigkeit und Bug-Fülle nicht erklären. Das Traurigste daran ist, dass die Designer das wertvolle D&D-Universum nicht mal ansatzweise ausschöpfen. Ganz zu schweigen vom komplexen Regelwerk, das sie zu einem Charaktersystemchen noch unter Diablo-1-Niveau herunterdummen. Und von der unzureichenden Technik will ich gar nicht erst anfangen. Selbst Koop-Freunden würde ich eher Dungeon Siege 3 empfehlen, denn gemessen am Spaß-Preis-Verhältnis ist bei Daggerdale selbst der Budgetpreis zu teuer.

Daggerdale is een inspiratieloos en slecht afgewerkt stukje software dat de D&D-licentie volstrekt niet waardig is en enkel in het leven is geroepen om fans enkele goudstukken uit de beurs te kloppen.

It would be trite to end this review with things like ‘Daggerfall? Daggerfail, more like’ or ‘Give it a critical miss’. As a fan of both video games and the Dungeons & Dragons franchise I’m too disappointed for glib soundbites. Daggerdale is poorly paced, borderline unfinished and has little respect for a license that’s given us nearly four decades of high adventure. It’s a dull game in every sense of the word and while it’s not offensive, if you have a dungeon-crawling itch to scratch there are far better games to do it with.

Mal réalisé et buggé jusqu'au trognon, Daggerdale a de quoi dégoûter les plus fervents amateurs de hack'n slash comme les aficionados de Dungeons & Dragons. Aussi nostalgique que l'on puisse être des vieux jeux de rôle ou de Diablo, on évitera à tout prix de se le procurer pour se rabattre sur des valeurs sûres d'aujourd'hui telles que Deathspank ou Torchlight.

But the online play is oddly littered with loading screens that emerge out of nowhere in the course of battle, seemingly to mask spurts of lag. Several times during an online quest, one or more players in my party suddenly saw a loading screen while the remaining player(s) ran around helplessly, amidst frozen allies and aggressive foes. It's unacceptable for a game to suddenly incapacitate players in battle, but that's not the only noticeable issue that revealed itself in Daggerdale. Elsewhere, enemies appeared motionless onscreen, textures and other details loaded within feet of my character, and I was able to walk through structural elements like pillars. Perhaps those issues can be patched out -- but until that happens, Daggerdale comes across as a careless and sloppily executed venture. Even if such problems are eventually addressed, this rigid and uninspired quest is little more than an adequate adventure, legendary namesake be damned.

There are bad games and then there are terrible games; Dungeons and Dragons: Daggerdale rests firmly with the latter. It's cheap, it's not fun to play and most important of all, it's broken beyond belief. Sure, a patch can fix it, but it's almost insulting that the developers would release it like this in the first place. Daggerdale is not only a terrible game, but a terrible raping of a license that's sure to piss off long time fans.
