Summary: The ultimate game ever. This must be played. Yeah the graphics are kinda crummy (now they've improved though) and it can get boring at early levels. Then it gets fun. Its great when grouping because the group can support one another and get some major XP. It gets better when you are invited into a guild 'cos there can be some real nice people in it (or really boring ones).
Summary: I have no idea why people like this game. Here is a list of bad things about it: 1. It has patheticly bad graphics. 2. You spend numerous hours farming off bats and rats. 3. You die very easily. 4. You don't see yourself attacking enemies. 5. I could go on, but I'm lazy.
Summary: Problem with EQ is that Sony has decided to consider paying customers as a secondary concern. Here are some of the problems you will face in purchasing this product. Firstly, if you don't have every expansion, then Sony will attempt to get you to buy that expansion with a pop up window. Never mind that you are already paying them to play their game. Friend of mine got all but the latest expansion and got harassed immediately the day he signed up.
Summary: After all the hype, I tried this game. Im a vet of several On - Line games over the past few years and this one is hands down terrible! Graphics are dated, the interface is clumsy and difficult to use. The is nothing, I repeat, nothing compelling to do in game beside whack at badly animated monsters. After all these years EQ does NOT have any player owned housing!? Dont waste your money on this game.
Summary: I have been playing Everquest for the full 5 years and it has just been getting better. Agreed there are rude people and bossy people but there are thousands of others.. just move on don't let someone ruin your fun time. I have many lvl 65's and help "newbies" CONSTANTLY mostly in kelethin as most of my chars are woodelfs or highelfs. I give away pp and lots of armor. You just have to find the friendly people and many people get annoyed by beggers.. who wouldnt?
Summary: I've been part of EQ since its year 1, and have quit the game (retired characters) twice thus far. I've "moved on" to other games like Star Wars Galaxies, Dark Age of Camelot, Horizons, City of Heroes, Uru, et al. It's the expansions AFTER what you get in EverQuest: Evolution that make it the most improved in my opinion.
Summary: ok i started playing this game a couple years ago and im in hook line and sinker! i would not recommend this game to anyone that has a life i.e friends and loved ones. cuz guess what? you'll forget what they look like and how they sound. on the good side you'll be able to recognize a guild mate all the way across a zone lol. customer service for this game is virtually non-existent.
Summary: I say this as someone who has been playing EQ since 1999. This is quite probably the most extensive and versitile RPG out there. For those who are into the D&D setting or even LOTR, this game is definitely worth checking out. In one of the other reviews someone said something about lack of action and the first person view being bad....
Summary: I cant believe this PRICE!! I started playing 8 months ago and I paid 16-20$ for each of these expansions. (90$ total) and with this package you get them all for 25$! I had to have them ALL! I'm having a blast playing EverQuest. I do agree its really hard to learn. I was lucky and friends brought me into the game and taught me how to play. but I just LOVE to play. there are always fun exciting things to do. at this price TRY IT!!
