EverQuest


FEATURE EverQuest is a very solid game, with a loyal fan base and over 500,000+ people have once held accounts since it started March 16th, 1999. For all the expansions, EverQuest runs for about 40$ off their website ( https://store.station.sony.com/game_index.jsp?gamecode=EQ ). Although it has a steep subscription price at $12.95 per month, ordering for longer amounts of time (3, 6 or 24 month) lowers the price per month by a few dollars.
Once you log into EverQuest you are surrounded by Tolkien-inspired characters such as the halflings. EQ offers many class/race combinations with 15 races and 16 classes. I chose to be a Halfling Warrior. As I first logged in I was surrounded by a slightly confusing and cluttered User Interface. After a few minutes of figuring out where buttons were at, I learned that EQ has a very interesting newbie help system, where all local merchants and other Non-Player Characters can be located by simply clicking on their name from a list. This is very helpful for new players to navigate. After equiping my newbie weapon and shirt (Yes they give you free food and backpack in the beginning too!), I departed from Rivervale and ventured out into Misty Thicket, the local newbie zone, full of bats, rats, goblins, orcs and other assorted monsters for fighting. I noticed relativly high frame rates throughout the zone and decent graphics. One interesting feature not seen in many MMORPG's is the ability to highly detail the facial features of your character down to the eye color. The sounds of EverQuest make you feel as if you are actually there, from the energetic tones of Rivervale to the intense sounds of the combat theme. Combat took very few seconds to grasp as I mastered the kick, bash, and taunt. I soon learned that when you died below level 10 you lost no experience and you did not have to retrieve your items from your body, but as you progressed you would. The players are very helpful and relativly mature. Within an hour of playing I was met by a young Halfling Druid who soon became my partner. We were in a group in which I was the "tank" and he was the healer. I personally thought the spell graphics were incredible looking. EverQuest is an always evolving game with many features that continue to pop up! Join a guild and raid Vox the Dragon or take a journey and master the art of smithing.

Graphics: 8 A little weak in some areas, but with Luclin Expansion the characters are nice looking.
Sound: 10 Hundreds of songs for each zone, however some get stuck in your head after a while!
Gameplay:9 Once you get the hang of it you become addicted, when Sony says "Your in our world now" they really mean it!
Overall: 9/10 Well worth dropping 50$ for, get the first 3 expansions for free and try it out for yourself.

Everquest


FEATURE This is my first review so don't bo to hard on the feedback

GamePlay: First of all I think the game play is awsem you can spend hours at a time on this game its good if you can find sum nice ppl so all and all- 7/10

Grapics: Not the best of the games out there I would say its not candy to the eye but it's Still allright graphics so I give it a- 6/10

Sound: The music is fine its not bad it's game music there isnt realy much I can say about it thats helpful but in my opinion it gets a- 7/10

Battle: The battle is quite enjoyable magic is fun ranged is kinda hard and expensive but fun the melee was good and u would entertain u for hours not the best I have seen tho so it gets a- 8/10

Skills: The skills in this were awsem and I personaly spent about 200 hours on this alone so for me its a- 9/10

Overall: To most big mmorpg fans this game is known as the crack of mmorpg in korea and place like that they have an everqquest mafia and it is THE MOST ADDICTIVE MMORPG GAME EVERMADE so I give it a- 8/10

City of Heroes


FEATURE No reviews in ALONG TIME, by me or other people, so heres one


Gameplay: In training, I tend to get map disconnected alot, but that only happens in training, no where else I noticed. I also tend to think im playing the full game the beta is so good, usually that doesn't happen 8/10


Leveling : I barely even look how much I need to level, maybe an occasional glance because combat is so fun, yes it as a level grind, like all mmorpgs. Powers are also great, great affects. 7/10
Enemies The mobs are also good, a little plain so, not much diversity, but im level 4, so I probly haven't encountered everything. The zombies are cool so, combat goes by pretty fast to 4/10


Missions are fun, at least to me, sometimes a little short, alot of fun so, especially when I get a sewer mission, that was really fun, more diversity in missions would be nice, maybe do a puzzle to get to another part of a mission you need to do, and make the "dungeons" bigger, they are kinda small. The stories are tons of fun so 6/10


Loot: Wth is everyone complaining about loot? I never see a hero find loot or anything from a mob, maybe an artifact for a mission, but thats all. Although their is loot, enchantments and buffs/heals act as loot N/A


Character creation: This was a blast to do, I found one template I really like that im gonna use when I buy full game, if I don't remember everything, I can try to make it similar. I never see a clone of me running around, everyones different since theirs soo many choices, one (or all of the best char creations in a mmorpg 9/10

Runescape2


FEATURE Wow...
I have to admit Jagex... you really outdid yourselves this time. The graphics are upgraded like mad. I was turned off from RS1 because there was never any updates for the free server, only members. My friend is a member all he talked about was the beta. i checked it out and its amazing. I'm hooked again... All the things me and my friends ever dreamed of adding, were added (exept ball and chain...) I dont usually like RPG's but not bad at all. Although i dont understand the point of runecrafting... Just buy the lousy runes from the shop instead of going through all that trouble with the talismans and all. Compared to other free MMORPG's i've played, this topps the chart. Good job!

Runescape 2 FULL


FEATURE Lets take RS1. Bland graphics,hard to get into gameplay, with greatness once you got to lvl 40. Now lets polish that up and add some kick ass features (I.E. Hookers in seers village)

Then add the fact that they have re vamped all of the Skills making it easier to lvl up. Added new armor types and the awsome new Dragon Spear,Mace,And full shield. And you get one kick ass game.


There are a few flaws to this-
1-The world is now much larger,making it now takes 30 mintutes to walk from varrock to adrouge (west) Thats way to long
2-WTF!!!NO FAIR!!! There are TIDES NOW!!! Which means FISH DRIFT OFF THE THE MIDDLE OF THE SEA,MAKING IT FIRGGEN IMPOSSIBLE TO FISH THEM
3-The graphics are still under-par
4-The emotes are retarted (dancing consists of moving your legs and feet like your haning a seisure)
5-The value of certs have gone down due to bank notes,which crashes to ecomony,weakens the dollar,and in about a year,runescapes economy will crash.


But over all, its very good, an large improvment over RS1, this game is truly a great game.


NOTE:Runescape haters,Please give this a chance. Play until you get to level 15,then you will see. And members worlds are amazing.

Shadow Lights


FEATURE Well, this is the first review i'm writing. i decided to do this because i know the guy that made this, so it might kind of non professional.

Graphics: The game is text based so no real graphics, but dacauz (the creator of the game) has some cool little gifs on it, and i've heard that a map might be added. graphics= 1/10

Gameplay: Surprisingly fun for a text based game. It incudes chat, towns, battlefields and more. Gameplay= 8/10

Community: The community is nice, and very newbie friendly. The game however, used to be filled with hackers, but they have died down. Comminty= 7/10

Sound: There is no sound on this game, other than the clicking of the mouse. Sound= 0/10

Overall: A great fun game. Good for just sitting down and playing for a few minutes, or staring at your computer for hours until your brain rots. Overall= 9/10

Runescape II Beta


FEATURE This is only for the beta...
I haven't played the beta 100%, but it was hella-fun!

Graphics - 4/5
Whoa, big change, WAAY better graphics, and trust me, way better

Gameplay - 3/5
Still had it's highs lows, not much of a change here!

Plot - 2/5
Ok, it's an MMORPG, so what'd you expect?

Players - 4/5
Lots of poeple playing, and lots of kind poeple, and now, poeple are making guilds and clans!

Menu - 3/5
It was better than the old one, but gets a little confusing, and bulky

Changes - 4/5
Lots of good changes, I'd say great changes, but the battlesystem, they didn't make it any faster!

Total - 20/30

Runescape 2


FEATURE Ok way back a company named Jagex released a game called Runescape. After about 4 years of satisfying their players, the players saw how most commercial MMORPGs were full 3d and Runescape was not. So around 2001 Jagex goes into development of making Runescape 3d. So then around 2002 Jagex decides to make the new Runescape a entirely different game. Which leads us to this, on December 1st Jagex released Runescape 2 (AKA Runescape 3d)

Ok for die-hard Runescape players as soon as Jagex started pumping out screenshots of the new engine around 2002 we all got excited. The new environment was uncharacteristically good. The new NPCs in 3d looked awesome. And the new features rocked. So lets just go ahead and look at the new features of Runescape 2.
Ok lets face it, Jagex uses java to make their games. If anyone knows anything about java they know that 3d environments in a java client are a new thing. So Jagex made new graphics. And all I can say is… wow. These graphics are basic, but extremely detailed. Runescape 2 is a fully 3d environment! I score the graphics a 4/5


The new sound effects Jagex used in Runescape 2 is pretty good. Nothing special though. The music they use is sort of good, I mean come on there MIDIs how good can they get? I score the sounds a 4/5


Combat System

There is one big problem with the combat system. It’s too slow! If Jagex can fix it that wow I would be so happy! I score the combat system a 3/5


These are a few things Runescape 2 has. A PK system, Lots of skills, A huge community, a great staff, lots of updates, and lots of fun things like guilds and mini games. I score the features of Runescape 2 a 5/5


Final Note

This game is great, and I cannot wait in till it is in a final release! So over all I give Runescape 2 a 9/10 this is a must play game.

Zelderex


FEATURE ZeldereX Online is a MMORPG strategy that is a bit slow at first glance, but it gets faster and more fun as you play. It gives away awesome prizes to the top ranked player! It also has really good tutorials and manuals if you get lost. The game is completely free, but has a member option which is $2.00 a month. The member option improves game play by adding access to forum, full game mode, 24/7 technical support, removes all adds, and more! It's a well constructed game and fun to play if you are interested in MMORPG strategy games.

Digimon RPG


FEATURE Digimon RPG...we all saw this one coming right? As pet MMORPG's beget cults and loyal followers, Korean-based company DIGITALC obviously makes it's move, creating a Digimon RPG. This is as dull as most of you might think. The game is simple, battle digimon, gain levels, gain money, transform into diffrent forms.

The game is in alpha, but even that is hardly an excuse for the sloppy mess that awaits you. However, the game is saved by one major point: it's addictive.

After fighting your first battle, you'll realize that's all you should expect. Instead of quitting though, you fight another battle...the game is like eating potatoe chips, one is not enough.

So, amidst the games flaws and inefficacies, you will want to give it a try. I mean, come on, how often does there come a Korean MMORPG that does not require those pesky little KSSN's?

Digimon Online RPG


FEATURE Language -Korean-
Kssn? -No






Sound- 4 1/2 - the sounds arent anything special..no music plays while you walk around,or during battle.just occasional ones as you attack,or if you win or lose.i wish they had put more effort into this category.



Graphics- 7 1/2 - the graphics have a nice, cartoony feel, but alot of the same sprites and such are used repetively.the have an almost pastel look to them.Nothing too special.



Battle- 7 - battle is turned based, and simple to understand. one thing i dont like,is it gets boring.no music, barely any sounds to accompany it,and from what i can see, you onl have around 3 or 4 different attacks you can learn per digimon stage



Gameplay- 6 - it being a korean game, im heavily dissapointed. i guess thats what we get for a game that doesnt require a KSSN.it had potential..if only they had used it to its fullest.




the game is a fun twist from the regular mmorpg feel, and does stand out with its digimon title.only true addicts to the series would realy enjoy the game.
stick it in your PC shoebox so to speak.you will only be using this one as a time killer.



Overall- 6 1/2
