  • Excerpt: EverQuest Online Adventures (EQOA) is the first real MMORPG to arrive on a console. They are commonplace on the PC, but aside from Phantasy Star Online (PSO), online console games of this style have been unavailable. Unlike PSO, the world in EQOA is an evolving-state world, meaning updated content can always become available. And while it may appear that my score implies otherwise, EQOA is not a bad game by any means and shows excellent effort in the field of MMORPGs.

Playstation Illustrated

  • Excerpt: The graphics in Everquest Online Adventures may not be the best graphics to ever grace the PlayStation 2, but they look pretty good all the same. The visual effects employed during the casting of spells are especially nice. You can choose from two views, a third person 'follow cam' and a first person view. Each view has its uses; the first- person view is good for checking things out closely and taking careful steps, third-person view is better for everything else.

  • Excerpt: EverQuest Online Adventures (EQOA) is a lot like a good woman (note to reader, I chose "woman" here to reflect my own particular tastes, if you're of the fairer sex please feel free to substitute "man" for "woman").  It's not the best looking one out there, but there is something about it that hooks you.  There are plenty of games with sexier graphics, but after a while you usually realize that there is not much more there and you begin to lose interest.

  • Excerpt: Online RPGs are split down into two categories; Everquest and Not Everquest. I once read that in a magazine and although it’s becoming less relevant by the day, it is understandable. Everquest has been the dominant online RPG for four years now and although it’s showing its age, many still play it daily. With consoles going online, it was inevitable that MMORPGs would make the jump onto PS2 and Xbox (oh, and GC).

  • Excerpt: Back in 1997 I entered the world of MMOGs (Massively Multiplayer Online Games) with a little title known as Ultima Online. Little did I know that all of my time would be consumed within this game. While I moved away from UO eventually, soon gamers all around the world became just as addicted to the game that would draw many away from UO EverQuest.

  • Excerpt: SCEA ha brought their venerable PC hit to the PlayStation 2, and Everquest Online Adventures is a sight to behold. Sporting some improved visuals plus the same addictive gameplay and persistent world, EOA finally introduces console gamers to the joys of showerless weeks spent adventuring with strangers. Ah, life... Click here for the review.

  • Excerpt: First off I’d like to note that at the time of writing this review my main character is level 28. I’m a big fan of Online RPGs and have been for a while now. I first got into them back in 1998 with Ultima Online and have been hooked ever since. Things have changed alot since then and so have MMORPGs.
