Everquest 2 - Echoes of Faydwer - Gamezone Review

New race, new continent and best of all new content. And not just for veteran high level players either. My god, it's almost like Sony Online listened to what their players wanted. That would have to be a first. Gamespot have posted an upbeat look at the new content available for Sony's effort to topple WoW off its perch.

Massively multiplayer online expansions often forego appealing to new players, focusing instead on adding content aimed at appeasing high-level veterans. This is part of what makes Echoes of Faydwer EverQuest II's most engaging addition to date.
