4.0 out of 5 stars A Difference Two Years Make November 21, 2006
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
When Everquest 2 (EQ2) was released two years ago in conjunction with Blizzard's World of Warcraft (WoW), it was suppose to be the battle of two heavyweight giants in the game industry. However, EQ2 was far from being a complete game and it suffered as WoW has gone on to court well over 5 million subscribers since then.

Flash forward to present day and EQ2 has released it's third expansion - Echoes of Faydwer (EoF) - and it's easy to see how much improvement this game has made over it's two year journey. The game has gone through numerous changes - both from the combat mechanics down to the tradeskill subset - to where EQ2 not only makes a strong run against WoW for best MMORPG on the market but the most casual player friendly game on the market right now.

EoF provides players with a new race - the Fae - and a new staring city, Kelethin, to start on the continent of Faydwer. Race selection is not just limited to the Fae as you can also start as a Dwarf, Gnome, Wood Elf, or High Elf as well. Kelethin is considered to be a haven of good in this game so only classes that fall within the alignment of Qeynos can chosen for play.

The continent returns famous landmarks that many original EQ players will recognize off the bat: Steamfront Mountains, Butcherblock Mountains, Castle Mistmoore, The Butcherblock Chessboard, etc. to name a few. Old enemies return such as the Crushbone orcs, Mayong Mistmoore as well as new challenges such as The Pumpkin Headed Horseman in the Loping Planes.

New raid zones including Emerald Halls, The Freethinkers Hideout and Mistmoore's Inner Sanctum await guilds that desire to raid high end content and offer great rewards for those skilled enough to make it through the zones (more on that in a minute).

5.0 out of 5 stars EQ2 Echoes of Faydwer January 9, 2007
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I started playing Everquest when it was just that Everquest. I have 2 online accounts and enjoy the game a lot. I'm 51 and I have fun like I did when I was 21 and played Pong at the Archades. This game is much better than any other I have played. I have played console games from Coleco and Atari to the latest Playstation 2 and Xbox but by far I like PC games the most and this game the best. If you like roleplaying this is the best. You can create up to 6 characters per account and join or like I did create a Guild and do hundreds of Quests (hence the name). I have 6 characters and the highest is a 65 and the lowest is a 54. I have been playing for over a year now and still enjoy it. I have 2 teeanged children and am a woking single dad but still find time to play. My suggestion is it's a winner.

5.0 out of 5 stars Easily the most complete EQ2 expansion to date November 22, 2006
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I was never very fond of the previous two EQ2 expansions, they added to the game only if you capped out and were getting bored. They were all about cap raises and that is it. This was unfortunate as I always felt that while EQ2 was a decent game, it was far from being great 1-50 and needed more...

That being said, many have complained that EoF does NOT raise the cap, but that is fine with me. The expansion adds some much needed depth to the game as a whole. One of my biggest complaints about EQ2 before EoF was that every zone seemed to look the same, and you seemed to fight the same monsters over and over as well. This isn't true anymore with EoF. Not only are the new zones totally different from anything EQ2 has seen before, they are also totally different from each other (from what I have seen so far). The zones also use many new creatures, as well as creatures that didn't see a lot of play previously in EQ2 such as the bixies. Not only do the zones look completely different, but they are enormous in scope. The starting zone of Greater Faydark seems to be about the size of Antonica, Thundering Steppes, and the 4 Qeynos zones combined. This is due largely to a true three-dimensional landscape which has multiple layers. In Greater Faydark the city of Kelethin is in the tree canopy above the ground. It is all seamless so you can jump out of the city and land on the ground (or die on the ground if you are not a Fae).

The fae themselves are in my opinion the most fun race to play so far in the game. The ability to glide down heights really makes these new zones fun and allows you to go to some places easier than was previously able to be accomplished.

4.0 out of 5 stars Ex WOW Player December 20, 2006
By Ixcess
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
After two years of playing WOW, I played the "Play the Fae" trial and liked it so much I purchased EQ2 with the expansions. I can say from experience that while it has been true that Blizzard has led the way in popularity, Sony will probably be finding more and more Ex WOW players flocking over in their attempts to find something better. This game is very casual player friendly which WOW is becoming less of a casual friendly game, not in soloability but in end game reward competition. I have found that after two years Blizzard is basically ruining their game making PvP frustrating with alot of imbalence with letting premade ventrillo type groups shift the advantage in their battlegrounds.As a casual player I found that the one thing that is left in end gameplay is the battlegrounds.Now they have finally made that pointless as well. After playing the trial of EoF I found it very fun and relaxing. No stress and dealing with all the issues that WOW seems to be rittled with. I have canceled my WOW account and have gone to a permanent EQ2 player. Another thing I find really cool is that as an ex EQ1 player before WOW I like it when I am playing and I see some Lore landmark or history of something that I remember from the first game, which from an EQ2 perspective was 500 years ago. I guess not knowing how EQ2 was at the beginning and starting now, I find that this game is very fun and casual friendly, the armor loot rewards from just doing normal quests are by far way better then I have experienced in other MMO's.

5.0 out of 5 stars There is no need to buy this.
EQ2 is free to play now. You only have to buy the latest expansions, which you don't need until higher level.

3.0 out of 5 stars EQ2
Isn't EQ2 'free to play' now? So this review is pointless and out of date. I had mild fun with EQ2 and Faydwer was a lot more fun than starting at launch in Qeynos or Freeport. Read more
