Everquest ll makes WoW seem like simple childs play
I've tried World of Warcraft, I've tried City of Heroes......they don't seem to come even close to delivering the same massive package of EQ 2.
There is a laundry list of of different characters and classes to choose from. The visuals are the best you'll see in a game of it's genre, the gameplay is extremely solid with plenty of quests to keep you coming back for more, and the sound is superb.
There is a massive world to explore which grows larger by the day. The best thing about EQ 2 is that you don't have to be a hardcore gamer to enjoy it's many pleasures. If you want to commit simply one or two hours a day for playing time, have at it.
Another one of the games attributes that I really hold close to heart, is that it's solo friendly. You don't have to constantly look for a group to help you grind or complete a quest.
All in all this is hands down the best online RPG on the market today. The only reason Warcraft attracts more players is because it requires a less souped up computer and appeals to a younger audience with it's cartoonish look.
It really is a shame that this masterpiece of a game gets pushed aside in favor of Warcraft and Guild Wars.
