A Look at The Shadow Odyssey

A Look at The Shadow Odyssey - EverQuest II - MMORPG.com

MMORPG.com's Donna Desborough has been playing EverQuest II's new expansion Shadow Odyssey which launched yesterday. Today, she gives us her impressions of the latest installment of the EQw franchise.

The developers at Sony Online Entertainment have done it again. The Shadow Odyssey is the 5th expansion for Everquest 2 and is once again packed with lush environments and new fights to be won.

The graphics in EQ2 aren't to everyone's liking, but one cannot deny the beauty of the new lands that come with TSO expansion. With 20 plus new areas to explore there is something for everyone here. Some areas may seem familiar, but then you can only make a zone look so different before it starts feeling familiar in places. Still they have done a good job with the new zones and each has its own ambience and character. Several of the original Everquest dungeons have been re-created. Even though these are inside locations it doesn't stop them from being vast in size. Of the re-done dungeons, my favourite was Mistmoore Evernight Abbey. It has a good ambiance and there are details to be found in many places. The Mistmoore dungeons felt like somewhere you'd find a vampire lord living. I think they have done justice to the original.

Take A Look at The Shadow Odyssey.
