    Damn Good!

    Rated on March 15, 2006 by MyThRenegade

    At first I did not enjoy this game when it first came out, quit and came back a few months later and love this game now. The pvp makes this game a whole lot funner. There is a large variety when it co...

    Maybe I was expecting to much...

    Rated on December 03, 2004 by Guapsrocks

    I was expecting way to much from this game going in. Verant made huge staff changes at the end of EQ1 to the dev team. I had friends that lost their job at Verant after the end of development on E...

    Everquest 2 begs the question: What were they thinking?

    Rated on November 30, 2004 by cjslayer99

    Since the release of the first Everquest, I was a true fan of the Everquest series. The multiplayer was quite addictive and really revolutionised the graphics at the time. But this "sequel" really ...

    Not your typical Treadmill!

    Rated on December 05, 2004 by Paganstar

    I have played literally almost every MMO played out there and I can say that EQII is the best of the best. Yes they do borrow good ideas from past (and some present) MMOs but it is how they combine t...

    Solid MMO, but not a genre definer

    Rated on November 30, 2004 by Napoleon

    I had really high hopes for EQ2, and for the most part i have been satisfied with what i have seen but there are a few problems which keep it from achieving greatness. PROS: it is fun. there is a r...

    Dissapointing, a dead world that's utterly boring...

    Rated on December 04, 2004 by vertigofm_basic

    When I first installed Everquest 2 I was quite thrilled, when I started playing it I was quite thrilled... But after a while I really started to notice that the world was very dead. There was hardly...

    um....... this is a good game?

    Rated on December 13, 2004 by Evailing-Light

    Well, after playing the game for a long while, I'm writing my review for it. While the music can get annoying after a while, and the battling system repetitive as well, EQ2 is highly adivctive and a g...

    Anyone who has dismissed this game needs to look again!

    Rated on December 07, 2004 by shawsvale

    All the problems I had with EQ1 have been fixed in EQ2. There is som much content to this game I don't know where to start. First there is the leveling. Yes it can be boring but with the new grap...

    Much Improved Over Last Generation MMORPGs

    Rated on November 28, 2004 by eswise

    I have been holding off on writing a review of Everquest II until I reached what I felt to be a good experienced level in both tradeskills and adventurer levels. I have reached lvl 20 in adventurer a...

    Though the game still needs to be fine tuned it is great for what it is so far.

    Rated on November 28, 2004 by Ashalon

    I've played Everquest 1 and let me tell you, now that EQ 2 is out, EQ 1 is a thing of the past for me. It has nice quests and a great class system. Some quests take a very long time to complete but ...
