  • Massively multiplayer mayhem minus the monthly fees

    Games Radar has taken the time to review the latest expansion for Guild Wars. Do they think Nightfall is a hit or miss? Keep reading to find out.

    Like its predecessors, Guild Wars Nightfall breaks the standard business model set by Sony and Blizzard by offering a streamlined, massively multiplayer online role-playing experience with a robust PvP system and lots of new missions for adventurers - minus the monthly fees.

    Set in the Egyptian-inspired land of Elona, Nightfall adds two new professions to the original six from Guild Wars: Prophecies (the original Guild Wars, which was retroactively renamed when the first expansion came out).

  • Failing Marks This Thanksgiving

    Gamespot has a harsh review of ArchLord posted. Give it a read and see what you think...

    ArchLord can be summed up with two words: "dull" and "repetitive." Unfortunately, this game doesn't have anything to offer massively multiplayer veterans, and if you've been playing these games for a while, there's a good chance you've already found something better than this.

  • The gates of Kelethin are open, and Everquest II grows again.

    IGN has posted their review of the recently released expansion for EverQuest II, Echoes of Faydwer.

    Those of you who ventured into Everquest may remember Faydwer, home to dwarves, gnomes, and many other denizens of Norrath. This time around the continent of Faydwer is beautifully rendered with zones of sprawling forest with trees that reach into the sky, cities of giant acorns that are built in the canopy, and dwarven hold fasts that are built into the sides of mountains. Among the over 20 new zones you can visit, is a new starting area for good aligned characters, Kelethin.

  • A Look at NightFall

    Boomtown has posted their review of Guild Wars' latest expansion Nightfall.

    The overarching plot of Nightfall is fairly clichéd stuff, but its written in a gripping enough manner and is interwoven with interesting subplots to keep you engaged while plowing through a succession of quests on your way to the level cap of 20.

  • IGN Reviews Echoes of Faydwer

    IGN.com has posted their review of the recently released expansion to EverQuest II. Keep reading to see how they weighed in...

    The point is that Faydwer had a seemingly endless supply of delights and diversions for players brave enough to seek them out. The latest expansion for EverQuest II, Echoes of Faydwer, allows players to return to these lands and see how they've changed over the course of 500 years. And though some of the place names and some of the sights might be familiar, those players who traveled through the same territory in the original EverQuest will find loads of changes.

  • IGN Gets Fae'd, Remains Neutered

    Or is that neutral? Anyway, IGN has posted the latest EverQuest II: Echoes of Faydwer review, and here's a tidbit:

    Final score: a respectable 8.4/10. See the review at IGN.com

  • Guild Wars with its third chapter release wants to prove it’s still going strong with Nightfall, new lands and new follies challenge the people of Elona

    StrategyInformer has posted their look at the latest expansion for GuildWars. Keep reading to see what they have to say about Nightfall...

    MMORPG, no monthly fees, it must be the perfect combination for so many out there wanting to taste this surreal ever-growing genre. Though you may not need to pay beyond the usual retail price tag, Guild Wars is a real contender for others out there. I entered this games universe with a prejudice; after having tasted World of Warcraft and becoming some what hooked I doubted this could really impress me. My preconceptions were very wrong; in fact I’ve seen much strength over other MMO’s.

  • Issue 8 Reviewed

    IGN.com has taken the time to write up their thoughts on Issue 8. Find out what they think...

    Two years on, and City of Heroes/Villains is still the most characterful MMORPG going. Sure, it doesn't have the ultra-dungeons of World of Warcraft, the minutely-balanced combat of Guild Wars or the endlessly evolving politicking of Eve. It doesn't, in fact, have a whole lot beyond beating people up. But there is one other thing, fundamental to its charm - it makes you feel important.

  • Echoes of Faydwer is looking to be a step in the right direction for EQII.

    GameSpy has posted a brief review of the recently released Echoes of Faydwer. Find out what they have to say including the promise of a more detailed review soon...

    EverQuest II has changed quite a lot throughout the past two years, and nowhere is this more evident than in the just-released expansion, Echoes of Faydwer. Many would call it the first "real" expansion to the game, and with good reason -- though three have been released since the game's launch, Echoes is the only one thus far to offer content compelling to players of all levels. Our early experience with it also suggests that it represents the most refined iteration of the game yet released. The newly-added "newb" zone is replete with directed content, which makes the early experience focused and entertaining. While the new Fae race may not be to the liking of some players, it really does grant veterans a chance to experience the low-level game in a manner that is probably a whole lot more enjoyable than what they remember.

  • Harsh Words For Newly Released ArchLord

    Fragland.net has posted a review of the newly released ArchLord. You might want to don your flame resistant gear for this one...

    Sensitive readers are best not to continue reading. What follows is a deep crushing of a game that had good ideas but never succeeded to in any way explain why you should pay for it. Let alone why you would give money for it on a monthly basis. I personally found it a disgrace that I was NOT paid to play it.
