After several hours of playing im completley thrilled and overjoyed about EQ2, Now dont get me wrong im still getting Wow but i might not even install it if this game continues to thrill me the way it has so far.
The many differences to this and any other mmorpg are #1 No lag #2 no one thats online playing complaining about it #3 graphics are astounding with no slowdown #4 Quest everywhere and plenty of content.
The downside is there are a few broken quests nameley the overseer quest is broken. but i cant think of anything else wrong with this game, It sure is hard considering after 6 hours playing EQ1 I was lvl 12 and here im only lvl 6
and ive been grinding with groups doing quests and crafting so not completley trying to power level <which takes the fun out> but ive been playing non stop for like 7 hours and i cant stop thinking about the possibilities.
Im sure your thinking bahh it cant be better than Wow , well im sorry to say it is, even if you make the graphics of Wow up to EQ2 standards there is something about the gameplay that has me sitting back smiling, Wow beta did that too but not like EQ2 is doing.
I will go on record and say this is the best game ive ever seen made and i go back a long way with rpgs, Started with Ultima 1 Amiga, SSI AD&D gold box series,Dungeon master,Elite,Might& Magic1,Wizadry ,then moved on to mmorpgs my first of which was UO, then EQ1,DAoC,AO,AC1,Eve,SWG,COH, and a few i would not like to mention so i think im pretty jaded and bored to tears already but EQ2 has awoken the magic agian.
