While some of the texturing in EQ2 is very nice, I just don't like the style of the game graphically. When you get out into the world it looks pretty plane. WoW just has a better style to it. It may not be a eye shocker with its graphics but it suits the game well.

Thank You, about time this game gets some attention. I think the game is gorgeous. One thing i absolutely love, The Shadows! I know it's taxing on most systems, but the shadows in the game are gorgeous, and when you have the lighting turned up on high quality, with specular lighting enabled, at times it just blows my mind. Plus the game is 2 years old!

yep not only is there full environment shadows, which will tax any system, theres specular shadows, which look really nice:)

hell theres about 7 options for shadows alone

some of the screenies i took arent even on full detail, and shadows are off in most of them

edit: ok heres some more

The game got plenty of attention near its launch, do some searches and you will see plenty of times that I have posted screenshots, arguments supporting its graphics and even complaints about the BS SOE is pulling...

- the textures look like crap (see below... on noes, teh tilez!!1!)
- the engine is incredibly badly optimised (designed for next-gen cards my arse! So why does it chug so badly indoors then, eh?!)
- the shadow/lighting system is all hype and no substance
- zones? lol!

So overall, no I'm really not impressed.

So whats the deal with this game,I have never played any eq games.
I bought kingdom of sky a while back but the servers would never work I tried connecting for a week straight then just decided to sell it.
So is it turn based or is it more like guild wars action?
Nowadays with all the awesome games out,is it worth buying and trying again?
It doesn't look like it can stack up against gwars,psobb,liniage2,ect..
but It looks pretty cool.

Are you crazy? You must be delusional. The lighting and shadows are excellent, and it chugs so bad indoors because EVERY SINGLE THING casts a shadow, plus there is far more geometry than in outdoor zones. ZONES? OMG! That -10 seconds is simply unbearable

I also love turning on the Floral Displacement, because the grass will move like it's blowing in the breeze which looks really cool. Plus, the game has only IMPROVED in performance for me as time goes on... I have a 7600 GT overclocked and it handles the game very very well.

I think EQ2 should recieve an award for how well it's grown and improved by leaps and bounds from launch and has now become the premier MMO out there.

Re: *** Official EverQuest II Screenshot thread ***
 
well if a 7600 handles it perfect then it can't look that great.Not to say it doesn't look good,but I mean it can't look jaw dropping.
Unless you are running it with a crappy framerate.
