  • Summary: Catacombs is the third expansion pack for Dark Age of Camelot in which players are given the opportunity to explore underground cities ? with attached adventuring areas ? based on the backstory of one underground player race per Realm. Many of these new adventures will be instanced, giving the player the chance to explore the underground world of Catacombs on their own schedule. The expansion features a major art upgrade to player character models that provides more detailed facial features, hairstyles, skin tones as well as enhanced armor and clothing options. The expansion also introduces one new player class per Realm. [Mythic Entertainment] Expand

  1. The number of realms, the number of races and classes of fighters available will mean the game will take a long, long time to complete, and even then the fun isn't over.
  2. The Catacombs expansion only adds to what is still the best guild and realm based MMORPG. With its much-improved graphics and new instance dungeon zones there has never been a better time to own this game.
  3. The graphical facelift has really pulled this game up to the next level, but Mythic was not satisfied to end it there. Instead it added new races, and new zones while expanding the mythology of the game as well.
  4. In spite of its aging engine and average sound, Catacombs is probably one of, if not the best add-on packs ever been released for an MMO. With the new areas, new tasks, model upgrades and inclusion of tons of content for solo players, this is a must own for any Dark Age of Camelot player.
  5. Catacombs is an excellent expansion and does a tremendous job at filling the solo and single-group content void.
  6. Camelot has never looked better, and Catacombs definitely gives seasoned players a good reason to stay, adn new ones a good reason to try this classic. [June 2005, p.70]
  7. Played the original? Then you'll probably enjoy this. [June 2005, p.92]
