    Not all i thought it was..

    Rated on July 15, 2006 by Ripperkiller1

    I'll admit, the 1st MMO i ever played was EQ 1, and that game was great! it had everything i wanted, could be played over and over again, and felt really good playing. But when i finally pulled myself...

    It may be addictive, but Everquest II is still a great MMORPG, and one of the best out there for sure.

    I've been playing Everquest II now for 4 years, on and off, and have kept coming back to it. I've been to WoW, LotRO, EVE Online, Vanguard, SWG, and several others, but there's just something about E...

    Does everything better than WoW except draw a playerbase.

    Rated on April 30, 2008 by wilson336

    I don't know why this game does not do better than World of Warcraft. Better graphics, more classes, more races, player housing, immersive cities. At face value EQ2 has WoW trumped at everything. H...

    EverQuest 2 is an addicting and fantastic romp!

    Rated on January 04, 2006 by emitheemperor

    Okay, I have to admit that I wasn't an EQ fan from the get go. When I first got the first EQ, I didn't like it very much. The graphics weren't that impressive to me, although the smooth transitions be...

    For the hardcore MMo players. (Read my blog for in depth review)

    Rated on August 01, 2006 by gameboy360

    First of all the gameplay is very fun....to me. I my opinion its for more hardcore players. There is ALOT of grinding and ALOT of farming! So if your into a more action packed experiance go play Wow, ...

    Simply the best MMORPG of the Current Generation. Makes WOW look like a simple game for children.

    Rated on December 06, 2007 by Diernes

    This review will take the current state of the game into account. This game is severly underated and is criminally disregarded by gaming journalists who stupidly worship games of the likes of Guild...

    Fun with frustration.

    Rated on August 04, 2006 by Chozzenn

    EQ2 is very similar to World of Warcraft, with a little more and a little less. Lvling up on PVP servers is always hard due to opposing forces going around killing you, and when you die in pvp you lo...

    Very awesome and entertaining game. I'm having a lot of fun now on the new PVP server of Nagafen.

    Rated on August 08, 2006 by kittencrusher

    Everquest 2 has unparalleled content. With two expansion packs under its belt, a third on the way, the smaller "adventure packs", and content released free through patches, I think its safe to say thi...
