Guide Review - EverQuest Online Adventures
Melodrama aside, it's true, EverQuest Online Adventures is here. The scary thing is, it's even better than you could have hoped for. O.K., no it doesn't have the prettiest characters in the world, and no, the soundtrack isn't quite up to par. But it's got game, and lots of it. The magic and combat systems work surprisingly well with the D-Pad, but the virtual keyboard is a joke... go buy a USB keyboard.
There is more than enough here to satisfy current EverCrack addicts, and Sony did a brilliant job in the transfer, so console cowboys will have no problem at all teaming up and tearing up trolls.
