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

Everquest - Game Like It’s 1999: Ragefire Server Now Available!
Score distribution:
  1. Positive: 14 out of 22
  2. Negative: 1 out of 22
  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.
  3. 84
    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.
  5. The interface is simple and easy to learn, and thanks to a few good decisions on laying out the controller, you won’t get lost in a haze of menus.
  6. 70
    Commendable, lacking only in more targeting controls and somewhat dull first impressions. Its gameplay quality will depend greatly on a large enough supply of well-mannered group members.
  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.

    This game rocks! If you love Everquest but always wished you could play it from a recliner you need to get this game. The graphics are This game rocks! If you love Everquest but always wished you could play it from a recliner you need to get this game. The graphics are underwhelming but it is the game that draws you in. There is nothing better than meeting a bunch of friends in game and go out hunting together. It is also alot of fun to see some of the same locations from the PC Everquest but 500 years in the past. If you always wanted to play Everquest but your computer wasn't up to the task then get this game! Expand

It's THE online MMORG that got me into the genre (it's also where I met the love of my life). Coming in at a time when MMORPG's were still in there infancy, EQOA defined a whole generation of multiplayer online role-playing games. Sure, the scenery, graphics, sounds, etc left a bit to be desired, but it was the story and the player-base that really sold the game. When I think back on it, everything seems iconic. From all the dings and clicks, to the musical scores. From the multitude of unique races, classes, and masteries; to the incredibly unique zones and cities; and to the truly epic continent of Norrath which I swear took a full 6 real-world hours to run from the top to the bottom of the map. There's really nothing quite like it in today's online games. Man, I would gladly donate $50,000 to help get this game back up in running. Either in its classic original state, or in a remake state.

I have met mutiple friends and made multiple enemies at the same time. You can go on quests on your own or group up with friends or complete strangers and make friends. If there is 1 game in the world out there that i would have to pay to play this would be the one for me. Expand
