  1. You might get a little lost on your journey sometimes, but you’ll never feel anything less than totally immersed. EverQuest II comes highly recommended both to MMORPG newbies and to those who might have become jaded with what other MMORPGs have to offer.
  2. If you are an Everquest 2 role player or just a player who enjoys the rich and fascinating lore created for the Everquest games then you should pay special attention to the new story lines available. They are by far some of the best written for any MMORPG and shows that SOE is still the company who can create some of the deepest and most creative worlds for people to explore.
  3. With the TSO expansion, EverQuest II continues to be one of the top MMOs on the market and The Shadow Odyssey only deepens the experience.
  4. 70
    Despite some of the unintended social grouping issues, The Shadow Odyssey is a well-designed expansion that gives more depth and playability to the game. It revives the social aspect of an MMO that had drifted toward solitary play styles, and brings new and different challenges to an already robust world.
