Champions of Norrath: Realms of EverQuest Reviews for PlayStation 2
Ok, I bought this game used thinking how can I go wrong, an RPG for $9.00. Well, I was half right, here is a great 2 player hack & slash.
Albeit, the storyline is alright, if not a tad cliche, but this game more than makes up for it in action. Plain and simple, "Don't buy this game if you're looking for a true RPG!" If you want action, set in a fantasy type enviornment, this is your game.
As for an actual RPG, I found the world far too linear, much like storyboards and not like exploring. Also there is only one shop in each act.
I know Diablo paved the way for these types of "neo-rpg's", but what happened to huge game worlds and 50 different towns with 10 shops in each, and a tavern and inn... what about sub-quests and side missions, and hundreds of interactable NPC's that sometimes has valuable information but mostly says crap like "nice day today" or "aren't you hot in all that armor" ?
Well, I'm getting nostalgic so... the graphics in this game are good for the most part, a bit choppy during big battles, but the characters are well done, with limited customization. The music is epicly boring, but the options menu lets you put an end to that.
It has fair replay value because it has multiple difficulties, (I'm on the last one now), and it is cool seeing just how pwerful you can make your character. Overall, good game, just don't pay more than $20 bucks for it.
This is a really great game, I've just got it and I can't stop playing. It's possibly the best PS2 rpg yet.
