4E no longer should be referred to as Dungeons & Dragons, it has about as much in common with earlier editions of D&D as Chutes and Ladders has in common with Monopoly. It's a completely different game and WotC should be honest and admit as much.

Game balance has been put at a premium at the expense of both realism and role-playing potential. It's a fine game if you're looking for a balanced small-scale combat simulation, but I suggest role-players look elsewhere. ( )

A wonderful update to the venerable D&D roleplaying gaming.

The 4th edition brings the game in a direction that many fans may find problematic. Specifically, the game borrows heavily from the current popularity of MMORPGS, such as World of Warcraft, and implements a number of game mechanics reminiscent of such games.

Overall, the rules have been simplified and more action oriented. This edition is a step forward, and in my opinion a much needed one, from the 3.0 and 3.5 mechanics ( )
