  • Summary: After centuries of solitude, the ogres of Oggok have finally opened their gates to the outside world. The long lost Mountains of Rathe, the volcanic Lavastorm Mountains and Veeshan's realm, The Plane of Sky, are now open to all explorers and adventurers. To the West, the Erudites have begun their massive exodus to the unknown islands of the Western Sea to escape the hypocrisy and corruption of their human neighbors. A true frontier, Odus will prove more than just a challenge to the Erudites, for their very existence is at stake. Adventure into Veeshan's home, the altered Plane of Sky. Find your way through massive hanging islands among the clouds. Untold treasures and power await any adventurer daring enough to tackle this perilous landscape. The gnomes of Klick`Anon have finally broken through the northeastern mountains and stumbled upon the tumultuous lands of Lavastorm. Reputed to be ruled by a mysterious tyrant of flame and lava, it's up to Norrath's adventurers to discover the new frontiers. [Sony Online Entertainment] Expand

  1. A dream come true for console gamers who have wanted to have a online adventure game! I have always loved the Everquest series for the PC, and the transition over to the Playstation was a smooth one.

    If MMORPGing sounds like it might appeal to you, then you'll not be disappointed with Frontiers. It's a solid online RPG experience that works very well.
  3. While the hardcore will likely turn up their noses, preferring the likes of "Everquest," "Star Wars Galaxies" or "Final Fantasy Online," those who simply want an easier and more instantly gratifying entry into the massively multiplayer arena will find Frontiers to be a perfect fit.
  4. Frontiers pulls out some great new tricks, and the world of Everquest has never been more accessible. [Feb 2004, p.30]

    Frontiers has done a brilliant job in updating and expanding upon EQOA. Fans of the original will have little to no excuse in putting off purchasing this title to see all the new features.
  6. An ideal title for people who’ve never partaken in the MMOG scene to use to test the waters. Like most of the other entries in the genre, it is a leveling treadmill, but it is a really well designed one.
  7. This is the kind of game that you have to sink many, many hours into, so you might just want to wait for the vastly superior "Final Fantasy XI." [Feb 2004, p.120]

    I do not recommend this game to casual players. Unless you are willing to do tedious tasks over and over again for little reward, and invest a great deal of your time and heart into this game, it will not be worth it. Don't take my word for it. Go to look at the game's official forums. See what the game's community says about it before you decide to join it. Expand
