  • Summary: EverQuest Online Adventures takes place during the Age of Adventure; a time set approximately five centuries before the original EverQuest for the PC. Return to a time in Norrath's past, when the city of Freeport was a new coalition of merchants and the elves have yet to abandon their ancient homeland completely. As a console RPG, there is a focus on exciting combat, questing and character development. Combat is fast and tactically rich, with each monster posing a unique challenge for the player. The world is laden with compelling quests and intriguing subplots. Players enhance their characters by discovering items and unlocking secret abilities. [Sony] Expand

  1. It’s an addiction, a very good one at that, where you can make up to 2,999 new friends for just 9.95 a month. A MMORPG that set its own standard on the PC world has indeed set another one on the console world.
  2. Finding friends is painless, and making them on EQOA is half the fun. It's the community aspect of EQOA that sets it apart from other games of the genre, and other online titles as well.

    Provides a great, online fantasy-gaming experience, albeit one that's not quite as grueling, unforgiving, or complex over the long haul.
  4. Many will find the game dynamics too slow, the missions too tedious, and the combat dull. All this wrapped up in mediocre graphics and sound. So, in a sense what we have is an MMORPG that is made for fans of MMORPG's, and not for many others.

    Good, but not the revolution its PC sibling was. [Mar 2003, p.44]
  6. The game has huge potential, but unfortunately most of it is unrealized at launch. [Apr 2003, p.30]
  7. Fortunately for our loved ones, the urge to boot up a PS2 to waste entire months role-playing as an Orc who sells pomegranates or a Warrior who slays stray cats won’t be nearly so compelling thanks to graphics that often look like flattened dragon dung.
