Dear Players,

We need your help to review DoF on Metacritic. http://www.metacritic.com/game/pc/dawn-of-fantasy

We are trying to spread the word about DoF, and while we wait for pro reviewers (we gave access to media last month) to review the game and generate official Meta-Critic score, we wanted to ask you - our players - to rate the game. Couple of people gave it 0 and 1 review on metacritic just for the hell of it to bring the score down - we are hoping there is enough players who can with an honest review bring the score up a little bit.

We are not asking for super high scores, but honest opinions. If you think DoF in current state only deserves a 3 - by all means. However - I would recommend that only players who played DoF for more than a week and know all the good and the bad post reviews, but of-course can`t stop anybody.:)

Also please keep in mind - we are constantly working on the game, and awesome new co-op and social patch is just days away, followed by a brand new pathfinding system, and finally 6 player PvP and Alliances are all around the corner. hehe:)

All you have to do is register account at Metacritic (takes a few seconds), and post a short review using Write a Review button on this page http://www.metacritic.com/game/pc/dawn-of-fantasy

We greatly appreciate your feedback and your time.

If somebody needs some inspiration here`s some reviews to date:

A lot of 10 ratings..for a game that isn't quite perfected yet. Shame to see bias.

I guess that money to folks like gamespy for "highly positive" reviews was worth it for them :p

Thanks again for all the player comments - and if you haven`t yet - please rate us on Metacritic!



And to reply to GPS/Joseph:

From some inside info I have - it`s not usually about "money" but Advertisement contracts and freebies. Although it`s rare to see an outright bribe - like review getting a brand new gaming copy with a review copy of the game:)

In most cases developer or publisher spends from minimal 10k to upwards of 200k with major websites and this of-course helps with the review process. Some of you might recall a story at gamespot that got-out a while back - I don`t recall the details but it was just a case where an honest reviewer who badly reviewer a game that had major marketing contract with Gamespot got fired over it.

I think DOF is a great game:
concept: great idea to have a persistent world.
dynamics: simple but fun
Graphics: Very nice, but to improve
Support: serious and willing to understand the players
longevity: will depend on developers
TIP TO ALL THE 'I waited a long time since the game similar to classic fantasy wow3 but with this wholesome freshness of the persistent world.
I trust in the developers to make improvements in the game even more beautiful and irreplaceable.

I'll post MY REVIEW
SHOULD I TRUST IN YOU
