"Free"--Two of Our Favorite Words!
It's been approximately four years since the original release of
Lineage II, and the developers at NCsoft thought it would be a perfect
time to release another free expansion for the game. Diving into the
fray, Cody "Micajah" Bye gives his full report on Lineage II: The First
Throne and determines whether the game is right for both veteran and
fresh players alike. As the follow-up to his first impressions review,
the in-depth version goes into some of the deeper nuances in the game,
so make sure you check it out!
From my play experience, the new higher-end content
is extremely fun to
play through, with well-crafted (if not terribly thought provoking)
dungeons that truly elicit some fun emotive responses. For example,
when I was playing through the Crystal Caverns on the Isle of Prayer, I
often found myself staring at the rich architecture and level design,
gazing up at the fish swimming above my head. The monsters in that area
were well-wrought and fit the instance perfectly.
