    It will take players many weeks of gameplay to fully explore all of the twenty new zones, and the new race adds more color to an already rich world.

    RoK has slightly more stringent hardware requirements than the original EverQuest, simply because the new continent is much more visually complex, with its more detailed textures and animated environment.
  3. Unless you're really really into the game, you can live without this add-on.
  4. The variety of enemies to fight, skills to learn, and people to meet have a pulling power that most games can only dream of.
  5. RoK has given gamers the opportunity to take the road less traveled and, if gamers will only grasp onto these new possibilities, this will make all the difference.
  6. As you explore the new continent of Kunark, it'll become increasingly clear to you that the expansion's value is as immense as that of the original game.
  7. Graphically, the new zones look better. Combine that with the addition of a new race, a new continent, the change from level 50 to level 60 characters, new items, spells and creatures and you've basically got a fantastic addition that is a must for EverQuest adventurers.

    This game is the closest you can possibly get to a digital drug.
  9. The graphics look sharper, the creatures look and move more realistically, the items are impressive, and the quests seem to be a little deeper.
  10. One of the best expansions released to date. Adding an entire race and continent to EverQuest, Verant has extended the life of their popular online RPG.
  11. Does a pretty solid job, but it’s a shame the graphical improvements made to this new island were not shared with the rest of the EverQuest world.
