Long have I been able to resist the dark grasp of the game known as Everquest. Yes, even as some of my closest friends fell to it's mighty presence, I was able to resist stepping into the realm. For a time, I thought I might have been free of the influence -- but as it turns out I was wrong. Once again, the digital drug peddlers at SOE have managed to offer a deal on Everquest that is just too hard to pass up with Everquest: Evolution.
Despite the 'evolved' name, this edition of Everquest is the same graphically as every other edition. This is one of the older MMORPGs on the market, but you wouldn't know it by the looks. The world of Norrath looks just as good as it always has and runs rather well. Even with the setting maxed out, I ran into few problems. It may not look like one of the newer massively multi-player entries like Star Wars: Galaxies or the upcoming Lineage II, but it gets the job done and looks good doing it. The sound package also remains unchanged.
