The Tellarite, second from the right, was particularly hilarious as a squat female Romulan in a mini-skirt. Definitely funny, but not game breaking or even really annoying.
I had no idea at all what to expect, having read nor heard anything on the game to that point. I just thought, "Hey, I like Marvel. I also like MMOs. Let see!" Sadly, other than flashy tights and cool powers flinging around, there wasn't much to see.
D&D, at its heart, is about crawling around in musty old dungeons, caverns, catacombs, and tombs. You might have started out in some tavern or had the occasional wilderness type quest, but it was all leading you somewhere indoors and likely underground. Neverwinter Online has that in spades. It's the same feeling, and it really brought me back to those pizza fueled days around a card table in someone's rec room, hacking away at goblins and ogres.
