    I've tried Everquest and Camelot.. and while both offered some time wasting enjoyment.. i've never been hooked online by a game as i have with Asherons Call 2, its almost sad really....Theres quite a bit to do and its very accessible making it easy to jump into. It does have its problems, but the monthly updates will most likely smooth most of them out.

    A far simpler game than many veteran fans were hoping for. [Feb 2003, p.62]
  2. An addictive game that has a good spawn rate, wonderful graphical elements and solid sound.
