EverQuest II: Desert of Flames Gameplay Movie 3

  1. There’s always something new to discover!
  2. The game is by no means perfect, but it's a wonderful evolving experience that it's a pleasure to be part of.
  3. With frequent updates, it is obvious that they are trying to get this title as far to the front of the pack as possible. Only time will tell just how “massive” this MMORPG game will become.
  4. Challenging games are becoming an endangered species in the MMORG genre; several of the latest releases seem to cater to the lowest common denominator of the gaming community. EverQuest II reverses that trend.

    Even as it stands now, EverQuest II is extremely fun to play, frequently rewarding, and designed with just the right amount of user convenience in mind.

    By design, you’d expect any MMORPG to offer you a wealth of layers to delve through during the days, weeks and months that you exist within it; even by these standards, though, Everquest II’s scope is almost beyond compare. [Jan 2005, p.98]
  7. Sure, EQ II has its share of great quests, including one that requires helping a crew to rebuild a ship that you then sail on, defending it against bad guys. But the run-of-the-mill quests never had that crackle of humor or drama that "World of Warcraft" captured so well.

It has everything any player who is a fan of the standard MMORPG model could want, whether you're a PvE or PvP player. EverQuest II updates more often than any other game out there for free, and has had more content in the form of expansions and adventure packs than any of the competition.

    Great game. I have actually just returned to it after 6 years away. Picked up my level 80 paladin and moving toward the level cap again. MyGreat game. I have actually just returned to it after 6 years away. Picked up my level 80 paladin and moving toward the level cap again. My family is playing as well. The quests are a little dated and simple: kill 10 of these and return, etc. But the epic and heritage quests are great. The Housing is the absolute best with a million options and is a complete side hobby unto itself. Very much enjoying myself again in this huge Everquest universe. Expand

But then WoW came out.Based on the original Everquest 1, with much better graphics, EQ 2 was supposed to lead the MMOs like its predecessor. But then WoW came out. EQ2 originally tried to keep up the legacy of non solo able content of EQ1 (even worse) you had to get a group (real hard) to do anything really. WoW had tons of solo content and PvP. So WoW became the new king of MMOs and still is. Things changed later for EQ2 but it was too late. Still, its a huge game, with tons of quests and nice community. Its graphics haven't aged well though. Expand

Routinely engages in fraud. Has its employees writing reviews to try and bump the companies image up. They have committed fraud in their products advertisements. Claiming that the games they make use GPU rendering, when they use CPU rendering. Have game uninstallers, that do not work, and you cannot remove their games. Like a malware. And have violatons of their own products EULA . As well as ban accounts when you raise concerns over cyberbullying, harassment, and stalking that is occuring in their products / games. WIth abusive Staff who ban accounts rather than doing their jobs. Its why as a company, they are failing. Denying responsiblibity, ignoring complaints, and banning those who complained. Engaging in retaliatiory practices to deny customers access to the products that they have purchased. Defrauding the consumer, and committing Theft by Deceptive Business Practices. Expand
