The game is still ugly, but it was nice to walk around some of the areas again. But still I'd never go back to playing EQ. I am already about to uninstall the game.
The XP-loss on death was a good penalty for this type of game, but the biggest problem with EQ was how slow paced it is. My wizard character plays for 1 minute followed by ~10mins of meditating to refill the mana bar. I remember needing another game to play while meditating when I was playing EQ. That is just a horrible design. If it wasn't like that I might have played the game longer than I did.
Well it was interesting to go back and look around but the trip down memory lane is over
