  • Where girls can be pretty and even tough guys can be fairies

    GamesRadar weighs in with their review of the newly released Echoes of Faydwer expansion for EverQuest II.

    We know you manly men out there cringe at the thought of being caught role-playing as an effete fairy, but you won't want to miss out on the new fae race in the latest EQ II expansion. The colorful wings are a big draw, but what makes the fae so sweet is their ability to glide. You can jump from anything for some serious soaring fun without taking any falling damage. The only downfall is that if you take any damage while in flight you'll drop like a lead balloon.

  • Echoes of Faydwer Reviewed at GamersInfo

    GamersInfo.net has been updated today with a review of the newly released Echoes of Faydwer.

    Echoes of Faydwer (EoF) is a new expansion pack being released by Sony Entertainment for their hit game Everquest 2. While many can argue it is just another expansion, it’s actually more of a re-launch of the Everquest experience.

    Primarily aimed at newer players and veterans alike – the expansion encompasses an entire new realm known as Faydwer, containing several new zones (at least 5 large zones) and several dungeons (at least 3) as well as at least one raid zone, this new area will give old and new players alike quite a bit to do as they explore the rich lands.

    Keep reading to see how they judged this new expansion. Do you agree with them or think they are ooff the mark? give us your review in our Ten Ton Hammer Forums today!

  • Jolt Takes a Look At Nightfall

    Another review of Nightfall hits the web today over at Jolt. Keep reading to see what they think of the lastest Guild Wars expansion.

    From being one of the more left-field MMO entries in recent memory, Guild Wars has gone on to establish quite a name for itself. The fact that the franchise is now on its third major marketing campaign in less than two years certainly doesn’t hinder matters. Whereas typical subscription-model MMOs are happy to soak up monthly fees and undergo major expansions only once in a blue moon, Guild Wars’ entire revenue model depends upon keeping game boxes on store displays and the Guild Wars name on players’ lips.

  • Pass or Fail? Find Out How Nightfall Scores

    Playtm has posted a review of the recently released expansion for Guild Wars. Keep reading to see what they think of Nightfall...

    A sequel to anything, be it film, book or game, is usually hissed at and never thought to be as good as the original but, with Guild Wars: Nightfall, the opposite has most certainly occurred. With two new classes, story, missions, PVP (player versus player) mode, items, NPC heroes and setting, it offers twice as much as both original Prophecies and sequel Factions put together.

  • A worthy addition to the series that erases the mistakes of factions whilst keeping true to the Guild Wars ethic

    Games Extreme has posted their look at the recently released Guild Wars Nightfall. They rate this expansion pretty high...

    Nightfall is a standalone chapter which means the storyline is in no way related to the previous two instalments. You play the role of a Sunspear recruit and work your way through the ranks in the middle of a civil war. The story does the series justice, the way the story unfolds and the general pace of the story telling is spot on. Expect a story similar to factions rather than the disjointed tales in Prophecies.

  • Nightfall Review At Atomic Gamer

    AtomicGamer.com has posted an interesting review of the recently released expansion to Guild Wars.

    The most notable of the additions made in Nightfall are the Heroes. As you go through the story of the game, you’ll unlock various heroes. You can only ever have 3 in your party at once, but there’s a good reason for that. See, these heroes are totally customizable by you, the player. Want a Monk/Necromancer that never really has mana issues? How about an AE-focused elementalist? Go for it – you can decide how the character’s skill points are spent, alter said skill points just like you would with your character and will have access to any skills you’ve previously unlocked with your main character.

  • How Does Archlord Stack Up?

    1Up.com has taken time to review the recently released Archlord to let you know what to expect...

    By their nature MMOs ask a lot of the player, and we expect a lot in return. We're not just making a one-time purchase and losing ourselves for a few hours. We're moving into that world. We're creating imaginary lives, setting up shop, making friends, spending weeks, months, or years of our time in the place, and paying every month for the privilege of doing so.

  • MMORPG.com Tells All

    MMORPG.com has posted a review of Dark and Light. This review includes some really nice screenshots. Keep reading to learn more.

    Take the world of an MMORPG, multiply it by a hundred and add complete freedom of movement and a fluid day/night cycle with changing seasons and weather. This is Dark and Light. The world of Dark and Light is so huge that you can actually get lost in it. You can spend hours just exploring and enjoying the wonderful views of bright deserts, snowy mountain peeks and dark caverns. Unfortunately, this big beautiful world is pretty much empty.

    The environment may never stop impressing, but the character models certainly do. They do not make good use of the current technology and their animations are at times silly. In fights your character sometimes swings his sword in circles above his head before hitting the enemy. The characters do a disservice to the environments they populate.

  • Belated First Impressions

    Gaming-age.com has finally gotten around to their review of Dungeons and Dragons Online. Though it is quite belated, they also take a look at how the game has progressed since launch.

    So yeah, Dungeons and Dragons Online has been out since February, and we’re just now getting around to doing a proper review of it. We are horrible, horrible people, I know. But, due to this lapse in time, we also have an opportunity to review how the game has progressed from launch, in addition to the modules that have been put out since its release.

    Keep reading to learn more. Do you agree with their feelings on the game? Let us know in the forums at DDO Ten Ton Hammer.

  • A Look at Factions

    GotFrag EXE has posted a review of Guild Wars Factions this week. Keep reading to see how they rate it.

    As the rest of the world revels in its addiction to World of Warcraft (see the latest trends here: www.mmogchart.com) many people have migrated to the Guild Wars world of gaming. Even the VP at my day job once said, "You ought to join us on Guild Wars sometime". I was shocked, mainly because he travels so much that I could hardly imagine that he'd have the time.

    Read the full review and see if you agree with the folks at GotFang EXE. Think they hit the mark or did their opinion fall flat for you? Let us know at Guild Wars Ten Ton Hammer.
