  1. Mythic not only added some cool new visual upgrades with ToA, but also added a great looking and deep expansion that adds hours and hours of gameplay to one of the most addictive MMORPG’s to begin with. If you are a DAoC player ... go pick this up as soon as possible.
  2. The sheer scope of the expansion is impressive as the development team desired to not only add new areas and items, but to change and update the way DAoC itself can be played.

    The fixed nature of the Trials precludes major excitement once you've burned through them. But for the money, this pack offers a fun Atlantean holiday. [July 2004, p.75]

    Nearly everthing looks better with the release of ToA, each faction has a new playable race, and there's a staggering number of things to do after level 40. [Feb 2004, p.112]
  5. A solid addition to a fine MMORPG but the technology used in Dark Age of Camelot is really starting to show its age. The interface is clunky and upon closer inspection, characters do look a bit blocky.
  6. Still, if you're a hardcore fan, you'll want it just for the neat interface tweaks, the one new race per realm and the slick look - provided you have a current-generation graphics card and the Shrouded Isles expansion pack.
  7. A somewhat weird addition to the already weird Dark Age of Camelot.
  8. A good expansion that's definitely worth picking up for the price if you feel that the original Dark Age of Camelot lands and loot have become stale and over visited. Easily recommendable for seasoned players.

    The most striking aspect of the new environments is how skilled Mythic is at art direction.

    Great Game... Great addition... See what people dont understand about ToA is its completly redoing certain areas of the game- for example the Great Game... Great addition... See what people dont understand about ToA is its completly redoing certain areas of the game- for example the quest system is much better and high level Items are worth getting- unlike the old game where crafted items were the best. I have gotten high ML's and I can tell you its going to change the game... Sometimes you need to take a break from emain (yone where most of high level Realm verse Realm action takes place) to truely appreciate this game--I suggest you do! Full Review »
