Product Description

Manufacturer's Description

Dragonshard is a real-time strategy experience based in the mystical world of Eberron, the acclaimed new Dungeons & Dragons realm. Within this wholly imaginative setting lives an inventive gameplay fusion: dramatic RTS play is affected by the risks and rewards of a thrilling RPG-styled underworld.

As players direct troops over the land, they also plunge smaller, hero-led parties below ground to an RPG-modeled world of beasts, battles, and bounty. Experience and items gained in this underworld result in great powers and abilities above ground.

Using magic, weaponry, and skilled maneuvers, players command armies from varying races to control, protect--or destroy--the powerful Heart of Siberys. Obtaining this omnipotent artifact will unleash its full forces, good or evil, upon the entire world.

2.0 out of 5 stars Not bad, just very disappointing. 20 Feb 2006
By Paragon
This game can be summed up in ne word: disappointing. It tries to be different, and to some extent it is, it provides 2 differnt play areas in the worlds above and below, but instead of adding to the strategy experience this detracts from it. The AI is very tame, probably to prevent the player having to switch constantly between the 2 worlds.
The base building around fixed points is a throwback to older RTS games and is not a good move. And the strategy generally falls back on the build as many units, upgrade them and rush.
As for the setting, well what can I say, Eberron is a briliant world, a magic-technology mix with vast potential for adventure and character, shame they didn't manage to capture any of it in the game.
To summarise: A half decent game that offers a slight variation on the norm but fails to deliver its promise. Try Warcraft II for a better fantasy RTS.

3.0 out of 5 stars A good idea, but a dissapointing execution 17 Nov 2006
By Adam
Fun: 3.0 out of 5 stars   
This game has a lot of good ideas. Having the 2 maps to gather gold and allow for subteranian attacks. Simplifying right down to basics, you build a building which can build and upgrade 1 creature. I also like the idea of having experience, earned by killing enemies, into a pooled resourse to spend.

This should make it a good game, but it feels more like a Beta test. Almost as if there was another stage of production to go through when they released it.

It was a good attempt as a first outing into RTS, but with other titles out there it seems a bit lacking.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant Gaming Fun 12 Nov 2005
You don't need to be a Dungeons & Dragons "guru" to fall in love with this game. Don't let the genre put you off. Wonderful graphics and superb characters to control. Easy to learn tutorials and almost everything can be controlled by your mouse clicks. Tremendous effects and going up against the enemies and monsters mob-handed is superb and really humerous at times. Great tactical game. I recommend it, especially as you can play Solo, Multiplayer, LAN etc. Very addictive - some very late nights in store to complete "just one more objective" !! :) Best gaming fun I've had in years. I was so impressed I just had to write this review.

4.0 out of 5 stars Nice game...but nothing new 25 Jan 2006
By Richard Kelly TOP 1000 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Verified Purchase
Dragonshard is a nice enough Fantasy RTS game, and in single player mode it is very enjoyable. You can choose one of two factions fighting out The Dragonshard and there is a third mysterious CPU controlled faction that appears in the later missions...
If you have played Spellforce then this type of game is instantly recognisable, however there is no real roleplay element to the game at all. You can level your forces, and this gives them greater power, but you have to do it on every map as on each new map they start at level 1. The main character you control also doesn't level up, but you can gain persistent weapons for them at least.
A big thing is made on the box about the "Entering the dungeons" part of the game - well it's basically like the "Above the ground" part but with different textures...
The single player campaings are also quite short so unless you will be playing it online/lan then it has very limited replay value, and to be honest there wasn't much difference playing as the human faction or as the lizard faction!
I enjoyed it whilst it lasted, but it didn't last long enough for me.
7/10 rounded upto 4 stars.

Fun: 2.0 out of 5 stars   
The graphics are mainly good, as is the gameplay, the storyline is OK.However, there are problems:

(i) this is a pale imitation of Warcraft with some additional ideas tacked on but not enough to differentiate it;
(ii) some of the main heroes are a bit odd. Lady Merryn rather lumbers, the Dwarf looks like a rather ugly child in nappies, Kael is mostly rather feeble and as a thief seems strangely inept at opening chests;
(iii) It is frustrating that you can't seem to drop useless items;
(iv) The lack of proper development of characters loses interest.

All in all it could and should have been better.
