  1. Darkness Rising brings a lot of new features to a great MMORPG.
  2. It's not quite a massive revival of the game and won't topple World of Warcraft from its impervious throne, but it does add a lot more content to a game bursting at the seams with things to do.
  3. The genius here is how well the expansion integrates with the regular game. [Jan 2005, p.85]
  4. Ultimately It might not give us the same warm feeling as 'Trials of Atlantis' and 'Catacombs', but Darkness Rising will eventually be a must for anyone wanting to take their game to the highest level.

    Excellent, we've all been waiting for sub-classes and fully controllable mounts

    Best offering from Mythic so far. Play on the Classic servers for best play.
