If there is an open beta I will give this game a try. Hopefully this game is playable in stereo 3D - WoW is awesome playing it that way.

I don't think theres going to be an open beta for this game,but I could be wrong.

There supposed to be shipping out the game no later then nov 25 according to my local gamestop.
If they don't the manager of the store told me they would refund my money as well as give me the game for free.

There wont be an open Beta due to the number of testers in the current test... They really don't need it. They did thier stress test by loading 20k+ people onto a server before opening more...

Well that's too bad - I hate to pay for this game if I could try it out for free. I do not have enough free time on my hands for two MMORPG's and I already love WoW from beta testing it and will pick that up for sure. If EQ2 was to impress me more I could always change my mind. I guess I can always wait for the early reviews of the game to roll out. I have played a few MMORPGs in my time so I know these type of games are always a "work in progress" but some early indicators of what the average person thinks of the game would be nice.

I can not believe how good this game looks when you're playing it. Screenshots and movies do it no justice at all.

Thumbs up Re: EverQuest 2 First Impressions + 45 screenshots

AMEN TO THAT!! Just got started with it today..sweet Jeebus it's perty!

I'd have to say that this game in "eye candy galore mode" looks better than Far Cry or D3 to my eyes. I'm still in shock lol. Just pried myself off a 13 hour run and loved every minute.

The main thing that really gets me is that there's a 512MB card mode that's NOT even remotely playable on my Ultra..I hit like 6FPS. Hottest looking slideshow I've seen.


Added comment: Have any of you folks playing it noticed that when it's raining everything gets wet? I noticed how slick the buildings and street looked in Freeport during a drizzle and so I went to hunt a overhang. Sure enough the stone was dry under the canopy and it transitioned to wetlook where the rain was splattering the pavement. Torchlight on wet cobblestones.../Drool

Did ya notice how the clothes behave like they should when you are in water? How they seemingly "float".

I've been in beta for a a month or so myself. I'm done..I dont want to know anymore about it for release

The one thing that I got from beta was that doing quests..ie EVERQUEST..is the fastest way to lvl..either by soloing questing or group questing. Killing mobs was boring to say the least and the exp was tremendously slow. Keep in mind I did not go to high lvl places..need to save some good stuff for real time.

The other thing not mentioned in the above review was the crafting. It is the best crafting system I've ever seen. When you do the first crafting quest you will see what I mean.

Goodbye to Daoc..Goodbye SWG..and goodbye to AO..

Just got in last night. So far the game looks amazing even on my 5900Ultra (but a little birdy in my ear tells me I'm going to be spending some serious money on a new video card soon because of this game). I'll give more of an opinion as to gameplay and such after I've played it a bit more, but I'm already loving. I left Galaxies a long time ago due to lack of content, and my friends that still play say it's a LITTLE better, but not much...

PS. WOW is too cartoony for me. I tried it and it was fun, but EQII defiently looks like the game for me.
