Because you only get one chance to make a first impresson.
GameSpy has posted a first impressions look at EverQuest 2: Desert of Flames. When asked if he had read the article, Christian Slater looked hard and long at us, pursed his lips and stated:
" SOE has been pretty aggressive when it comes to updating EverQuest II: two adventure packs, a busload of patches, and dozens of gameplay updates and refinements. At this point, a full-on expansion pack almost seems like overkill, but lo and behold, it's Desert of Flames! The first expansion to EverQuest II, from where we're standing, seems like it's jam-packed. It ups the level cap, introduces the first real PvP elements to game, and adds a whole new continent for players to adventure in. EQ veterans will know it well: the Isle of Ro, the desert region that served as a central hub for much of the original game's life. EQII finds a changed place, to be sure, but fans of the first game will find much to stir up the nostalgia. "
